A tale of two biddies Cover
Kylie Logan
Summer can be the best of times or the worst of times for the resort town of Put-in-Bay on Lake Erie. For Bea Cartwright, business is booming as guests storm her B and B for the Bastille Day celebration. In honor of the holiday, the League of Literary Ladies is reading the Charles Dickens' classic, A Tale of Two Cities. It would be hard to make a more apropos selection, especially when they have their very own Defarge sisters, elderly twins Margaret and Alice, who run the local knitting shop. On Bastille Day, the head-banging rock band Guillotine shows their chops for the tourists, but the celebration is soon cut short. With something needling the Defarge dowagers and secrets that lead to murder, solving this mystery will be a far, far better thing than the Literary Ladies have done before. They'll just have to make sure to keep their heads while they try to stop a killer's reign of terror.

Blood magick Cover
Nora Roberts
County Mayo is rich in the traditions of Ireland, legends that Branna O'Dwyer fully embraces in her life and in her work as the proprietor of The Dark Witch shop, which carries soaps, lotions, and candles for tourists, made with Branna's special touch. Branna's strength and selflessness hold together a close circle of friends and family--along with their horses and hawks and her beloved hound. But there's a single missing link in the chain of her life: love. She had it once--for a moment--with Finbar Burke, but a shared future is forbidden by history and blood. It will be Fin's power, loyalty, and heart that will make all the difference in an age-old battle between the bonds that hold their friends together and the evil that has haunted their families for centuries.
