Looking for new authors? Perhaps you need a gift idea? These four titles are definitely great reads in fiction. Whether you need a mystery, fantasy, or historical fiction, one of these titles might fit your desires.
Fiction / Mystery / Historical / Romance
Fourth in the Verity Kent series, Pretty Deceit by Anna Lee Huber will keep you guessing. For those who have not read the series, you need to start with This Side of Murder, which begins just after the Great War. Pretty Deceit gives more back story into Verity Kent and a new murder to solve. Already available, check our availability of the Verity Kent series.
Revenge in Rubies
Fiction / Mystery / Historical
Revenge in Rubies is the second installment of A.M. Stuart’s Harriet Gordon series. While you don’t have to read the books in order, it is best to start with Singapore Sapphire. Set in Singapore during the early 1900s, Stuart touches on suffragists, murder and offers a strong female character. Available in softcover, you can pick up both books at the store.
Fantasy / Magic / Coming of Age
Naomi Novik opens Deadly Education with humor. Her self-deprecating main character tells us she is dangerous to everyone around her. Novik also introduces the main male lead, Orion Lake, as the nemesis, a too good guy who keeps saving our heroine. Currently, in stock and in hardcover, any fan of fantasy and magic who loves humor will not want to miss this title.
The Four Winds
Fiction / Historical / Women
Kristin Hannah found her genre when she started writing historical fiction. Writing well before The Nightingale, Hannah showed us more depth to her characters, particularly women and their struggles. The Four Winds takes us to the Dust Bowl era and makes us feel the Great Depression’s effects on Elsa Martinelli. Due out in February, you won’t want to miss this epic tale.
