New Books

Hooray, It’s Time for New Books!

Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a wonderful three-day weekend, if that’s a thing that happened where you are. I’ll give you three guesses how I spent mine. (SPOILER: Reading books.) I have a few of today’s amazing new releases to tell you about. And you can hear about more awesome reads on this week’s episode of the All the Books! Kim and I discussed Sorry I’m Late, I Didn’t Want to ComeStay Sexy & Don’t Get MurderedOther Words for Home, and more great books.

Sponsored by The Plus One from HarperCollins 360.

Polly Spencer is single and turning thirty, but seriously, she’s fine. Even if she’s still stuck at Posh! magazine writing about royal babies and the chances of finding a plus one to her best friend’s summer wedding are looking worryingly slim. But it’s a new year, and Polly’s determined that over the next 365 days she’ll remember to shave her legs, drink less wine, and get her s**t together. Her latest piece is on the infamous Jasper, Marquess of Milton, undoubtedly neither a plus one nor ‘the one.’ She’s heard the stories—there’s no way she’ll succumb to his charms…

the flatshareThe Flatshare: A Novel by Beth O’Leary

This is a delightful romantic comedy about two people who are perfect for each other, if only they could meet. Tiffany and Leon share a flat. Just not at the same time. In an effort to save money, Tiffany stays in it at night, and Leon during the day. As the two communicate through a series of notes, they begin to develop a real affinity for one another. Could it translate over IRL? (Writing this blurb is making me want to go watch Ladyhawke.)

I don’t know why people even bother writing reviews of Beverly Jenkins’s books. She is amazing every. single. time. This romance is about Valinda Lacy, a Northern woman in New Orleans after the Civil War. She’s trying to help the newly emancipated community, but when criminals destroy her school, and threaten her, she flees – and ends up running into Captain Drake LeVeq. He admires Valinda’s strong spirit and independence. And when her father insists Valinda returns home, Drake realizes he feels even more for her.
