Review: Bittersweet Brooklyn by Thelma Adams

As many of you know, I am a sucker when it comes to pretty covers. I love the elegance of this cover. Not only does the woman on the cover seem intriguing, but the text and the angle suggested that it was going to be a little more edgy, almost like a classic noir film or something.

After reading the description, I was eager to start reading it. It sounded a little like The Godfather and I was excited to read something a little more edgy and different in the historical fiction genre.

Often in historical fiction, the mobster world goes untapped and I love mob movies and I often wonder why I don’t see more mobster style historical fiction books? Maybe they are out there and I just haven’t found them, but either way I was excited that this one had come across my desk for review.  Continue reading “Review: Bittersweet Brooklyn by Thelma Adams”

Special Feature: MORE THAN WORDS by Jill Santopolo

I have this book up for review but not until March 8th. But I wanted to get this info out there for all of you do you can be sure to add this book to your TBR list!

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Light We Lost, Jill Santopolo, comes her much anticipated second novel MORE THAN WORDS (Putnam; on sale Feb 5).

Response to The Light We Lost was phenomenal. It was a Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick, a Belletrist and Skimm Reads pick, and New York Times and international bestseller that’s been translated into more than 35 languages. Advance praise (below) for MORE THAN WORDS – yet another tender and moving story set in NYC, about a woman at a crossroads after the death of her father, and caught between the love of two men – shows that the new novel is also uniquely memorable and simply extraordinary, and again comes from a deep place in Jill’s heart:

It was written after my father died in a car accident and while many people I care a lot about were fighting cancer. It was also written while I was falling in love. I think you’ll see pieces of all those emotions in this story—the mixture of love and loss, of despair and hope, and, ultimately, of peace and self-discovery and the knowledge that sorrow and joy can coexist in our hearts, that we can live and love even as we mourn.

Advanced Praise

Jane Austen Lived a Quiet, Single Life-Or Did She?

Tradition holds that Jane Austen lived a proper, contemplative, unmarried life. But what if she wed a man as passionate and intelligent as she-and the marriage remained secret for 200 years?

The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen resolves the biggest mystery of Austen’s life-the “lost years” of her twenties-of which historians know virtually nothing.

• Why the enduring rumors of a lost love or tragic affair?

• Why, afterward, did the vivacious Austen prematurely put on “the cap of middle age” and close off any thoughts of finding love?

• Why, after her death, did her beloved sister destroy her letters and journals?

The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen trilogy answers these questions through a riveting love affair based on the history of the times and the details of Austen’s own life.
