<b>#1 <i>New York Times</i> Bestseller<br />A Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club Pick<br /><br />"I can't even express how much I love this book! I didn't want this story to end!"--Reese Witherspoon<br /><br />"Painfully beautiful."--<i>The New York Times Book Review</i><br /><br />"Perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver."--<i>Bustle</i></b><br /><br />For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life--until the unthinkable happens.<br /><br />Perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver and Karen Russell, <i>Where the Crawdads Sing</i> is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.

<b>The #1 <i>New York Times </i>bestseller—a thrilling new romance from E L James, author of the phenomenal bestselling Fifty Shades Trilogy.<br /></b><br /> London, 2019. Life has been easy for Maxim Trevelyan. With his good looks, aristocratic connections, and money, he’s never had to work and he’s rarely slept alone. But all that changes when tragedy strikes and Maxim inherits his family’s noble title, wealth, and estates, and all the responsibility that entails. It’s a role he’s not prepared for and one that he struggles to face.<br />  <br /> But his biggest challenge is fighting his desire for an unexpected, enigmatic young woman who’s recently arrived in England, possessing little more than a dangerous and troublesome past.  Reticent, beautiful, and musically gifted, she’s an alluring mystery, and Maxim’s longing for her deepens into a passion that he’s never experienced and dares not name. Just who is Alessia Demachi? Can Maxim protect her from the malevolence that threatens her? And what will she do when she learns that he’s been hiding secrets of his own?<br />  <br /> From the heart of London through wild, rural Cornwall to the bleak, forbidding beauty of the Balkans, <i>The Mister</i> is a roller-coaster ride of danger and desire that leaves the reader breathless to the very last page.

Worse, he’s remarried – to Drue’s eighth grade frenemy, Wendy, now his office manager.
