New Books, Happy Bookworm


I was so excited today to have walked into a book sale where I picked up all four of these books for just $2.00! Here’s a brief look into what they’re about:

1.Cloche and Dagger by Jenn McKinlay

The first book in the Hat Shop Mystery Series, this book finds cousins Scarlett and   Vivian running their grandmother’s hat shop in England. I have already this book, but I can’t wait to read it again, as I love the writing of Ms. McKinlay.

2. The First Affair by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus

This book has been on my ‘to-read’ list for a while now. I love the writing of this fantastic duo, who are also the writers of the The Nanny Diaries. This book follows a White House intern who gets involved with the President, naturally bringing to mind a White House scandal that occurred a mere 20+ years ago.

3. Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness

I just recently discovered this series from an online list and have yet to read the first book, but I couldn’t resist buying this sequel. The series follows a historian descended from witches as she discovers an old manuscript and joins forces with vampire Matthew.

4. Palisades Park by Alan Brennert

Another book that I have on my long ‘to-read’ list, Palisades Park follows a family who owns a stand at the aforementioned theme park in New Jersey. The book follows the members as a variety of historical events, including The Great Depression and Pearl Harbor, occur around them.
