Color me clueless, but I had no idea the cover image was a rose engulfed in flame. Well, that kind of explains a lot…. Too bad it took me the entire story to figure it out because that really is a beautiful cover!
I might own a few of Kiersten White’s previous books. I might not have read them yet, either. I may have to change that immediately.
When an author as prolific as Christina Dodd invites you to share in the cover reveals for the re-releases of her hugely popular Governess Brides Series, you listen. Or rather, I listened!
I freakin’ bawled my eyes out when I finished reading this final book in the Crown and Key trilogy. Heads up people – if you want to read this series, start at book one, The Shadow Revolution, and don’t skip book two, The Undying Legion. Only then will you properly and fully enjoy the complete experience of the Crown and Key trilogy (*cue the John Williams music*).
Today I’m featuring an intriguing new novel from authors Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie. They collaborated on a historical novel based on Thomas Jefferson’s oldest daughter, Patsy, and her life in her father’s shadow. Below the beautiful cover is your chance at receiving an eARC through Edelweiss. Good Luck!!

The Ring and The Crown was one of those stories that reminded me of grand Merchant Ivory-type period films like Howard’s End or Sense and Sensibility; so many small stories weaving together to make up the greater plot, full of tragic circumstances, lost chances, hopes, failures, and lots of surprises. If you like historical soap operas, you’ll love this one.
For this week’s book club question, I get down to the nitty gritty, break it down to the bare facts of life. It’s just this simple, really…
