Happy November, everyone! One thing I love about this month’s round of books (besides the great stories, of course) is how they’re all historical fiction, but even the covers give you glimpses of how they’re different in tone. From the sassy glint in the eyes of Jen’s heroine to the lovely atmosphere of Sarah’s to the crisp pop of color and drama on Julianna’s, they each hint at the humor, romance, and mystery inside. If you’d like to test them out, click on the covers to read an excerpt of each!
Out of the Ordinary by Jen Turano
Plot: When shipping magnate Harrison Sinclair’s mother catches Gertrude Cadwalader, paid companion to the light-fingered Mrs. Davenport, returning a pilfered item, she comes to the wrong conclusion. However, Harrison is eager to mend fences once he realizes the error. After a real thief starts preying on society, can Gertrude and Harrison catch the culprit?
The Sound of Rain by Sarah Loudin Thomas
Plot: After a terrible mine accident in 1954, Judd Markley abandons his poor Appalachian town for Myrtle Beach. There he meets the beautiful and privileged Larkin Heyward, who dreams of helping people like those he left behind. Drawn together amid a hurricane, they wonder what tomorrow will bring—and realize that it may take a miracle for them to be together.
Death at Thorburn Hall by Julianna Deering
Plot: Drew Farthering finds a new mystery on his hands when he arrives at Thorburn Hall in Scotland for the 1935 British Open. His host, Lord Rainsby, asks Drew to investigate a suspected embezzler—then dies in a suspicious accident the next day. However, the house is full of guests with potential motives. Can Drew discover the killer among them?
