THE VIEW FROM PRINCE STREET

Alexandria Series #2

Mary Ellen Taylor

Blog Tour Date:  Jan 5

Book Release Date:  Jan 5

Book Giveaway Contest:  Jan 5-12

You are going to love revisiting Virginia with Mary Ellen Taylor (aka Mary Burton)--her second installment in the Alexandria series. Highly recommend the first book "At the Corner of King Street", and her other series: The Union Street Bakery.  Where you will always find something cooking. 

 

Taylor’s complex tale spans three families over two centuries and includes a dose of ancient magic, but the story remains grounded in fascinating history and emotional turmoil that is intense yet subtle. An intelligent, heartwarming exploration of the powers of forgiveness, compassion, and new beginnings.”
—Kirkus Reviews
 

 

 

SUMMIT LAKE  

Charlie Donlea 

Blog Tour Date:  Jan 26

Book Release Date:  Jan 26

Book Giveaway Contest:  Jan 16-26

Charlie Donlea delivers a smashing crime thriller debut!  A gripping murder mystery in North Carolina mountains (I know the area, well), near Hendersonville.  An unspeakable crime. A story of two girls:  One Murdered.  One Trying to Find Out Why.  

 

"A brilliant, haunting thriller in which The Lovely Bones meets The Silence of the Lambs—with a bit of Twin Peaks thrown in for good measure! Charlie Donlea weaves a unique, spellbinding tale about a bond between two fascinating women—one living, one dead. Full of unexpected twists and turns,Summit Lake is an irresistible page-turner.”

--Kevin O’Brien, New York Times bestselling author
