It was an interesting week, from moving thousands of bricks to accidentally mistaking beetroot relish for jam. Fortunately, I got it right (and so did the sunshine!) with these new books in the mail:
Out of Breath by Anna Snoekstra (available July) arrived thanks to Harlequin. Jo has always been on the run, but when she hears about an idyllic off-grid community it sounds perfect. But it’s not really – multiple sinister secrets surround the community and the people in it. Where do Jo’s loyalties lie?
The Brightest Star by Emma Harcourt (available July) came from Harlequin too. Set during the Renaissance in Florence, Leonarda isn’t as interested in religion, but books. She wants to be an astronomer but society doesn’t agree, which changes her future.
The Making of Her by Bernadette Jiwa (out tomorrow) was from Penguin with thanks. Joan and Martin’s marriage looks like a dream, but nobody knows of the daughter they gave up for adoption. It affects her marriage and her relationship with her second child. But when her daughter reappears in her life, Joan’s façade begins to crack…
