Happy 2021. May this be a year of positive changes.
I was lucky to have several parcels arrive this week, thanks to the hardworking delivery people.
Florence Adler Swims Forever by Rachel Beanland (available 3rd February) arrived thanks to Simon & Schuster. In 1934, Florence is determined to swim the English Channel but her sister Fannie is on bedrest for the remainder of her pregnancy. Their parents have taken in a young woman from Nazi Germany and Fannie’s husband is scheming. But when disaster strikes, Fannie’s mother decides to hide the truth from Fannie – just for a little while. But could it result in betrayal?
The Bushranger’s Wife by Cheryl Adnams (available 6th January) came thanks to Harlequin. Set in 1861 Victoria, Pru and her grandmother are held up by the bushranger Jack the Devil. Jack is captivated by Pru and when they meet at a later date, he organises cheeky terms for her to get her beloved necklace back. When Pru’s grandmother reveals a secret, Pru runs away with Jack but everyone is on his tail…
Starting from Scratch by Penelope Janu (available 6th January) was also from Harlequin. Sapphie has found somewhere to call home – Horseshoe Hill. But now her childhood friend Matts has come to town to deliver a warning, and he doesn’t want to leave. The pair are attracted to each other, but will their secrets stop them from being apart?
Paris Never Leaves You by Ellen Feldman is set in WWII Paris, as Charlotte battles to keep her and her baby safe. During these days, she accepts help and her life is changed forever. After the war and a move to New York, can she ever forget what happened in Paris?
