<b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER<br /></b><br /><i>“I wonder how the book got to Guernsey? Perhaps there is some sort of secret homing instinct in books that brings them to their perfect readers.” </i>January 1946: London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, and writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she’s never met, a native of the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb….<br /> <br /> As Juliet and her new correspondent exchange letters, Juliet is drawn into the world of this man and his friends—and what a wonderfully eccentric world it is. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society—born as a spur-of-the-moment alibi when its members were discovered breaking curfew by the Germans occupying their island—boasts a charming, funny, deeply human cast of characters, from pig farmers to phrenologists, literature lovers all.<br /> <br /> Juliet begins a remarkable correspondence with the society’s members, learning about their island, their taste in books, and the impact the recent German occupation has had on their lives. Captivated by their stories, she sets sail for Guernsey, and what she finds will change her forever.<br /> <br /> Written with warmth and humor as a series of letters, this novel is a celebration of the written word in all its guises, and of finding connection in the most surprising ways.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

When a dead man turns up in an industrial waste barrel just outside of Sinful, Ida Belle and Gertie are worried. The shady Houston businessman had a reputation for underhanded and dirty deals. With his newly established hazardous wasted disposal company, and the many land purchases he'd made around Sinful, was he up to his dirty deeds? Had he been dumping toxic waste around Sinful? Was his body left as a warning or was it a hasty disposal?<br /><br />Gertie contacts a reporter who's been hot on Dirty Dudley's tail for years. But things don't turn out as expected when the reporter shows up... and gets arrested for murder. It's up to the Sinful women to catch the real killer, even if Mo has to sacrifice her dignity in the process.<br /><br />Kindle Worlds is a program that allows writers to use Jana DeLeon's Miss Fortune story elements and expand them in their own way. She has my deepest gratitude for putting this series in Kindle Worlds.<br /><br />The original character portrayals in this book are based on Jana DeLeon's development of them in the early books of her Miss Fortune series, and may not coincide with events in her later books. This is book seven in the "Wholly Moses!" series. It's not intended to be a standalone book.

In this fast-paced mystery by Rita Mae Brown and her feline co-author Sneaky Pie Brown, Mary Minor “Harry” Haristeen and her animal friends seek to solve a whodunit rooted in eighteenth-century Virginia—uncovering a shocking secret that refuses to stay buried.<br />  <br /> <b>TALL TAIL</b><br />  <br /> At any moment a perfect summer day in Crozet, Virginia—nestled within the Blue Ridge Mountains—might turn stormy and tempestuous, as Harry knows too well when a squall suddenly sweeps in. In a blink, Harry’s pickup nearly collides with a careening red car that then swerves into a ditch. Harry recognizes the dead driver slumped over the vehicle’s steering wheel: Barbara Leader was nurse and confidante to former Virginia governor Sam Holloway.<br />  <br /> Though Barbara’s death is ruled a heart attack, dissenting opinions abound. After all, she was the picture of health, which gives Harry and her four-legged companions pause. A baffling break-in at a local business leads Harry to further suspect that a person with malevolent intent lurks just out of sight: Something evil is afoot.<br />  <br /> As it happens, Barbara died in the shadow of the local cemetery’s statue of the Avenging Angel. Just below that imposing funereal monument lie the remains of one Francisco Selisse, brutally murdered in 1784. Harry’s present-day sleuthing draws her back to Virginia’s slave-holding past and the hunt for Selisse’s killer. Now it’s up to Harry and her furry detectives—Mrs. Murphy, Pewter, and Tee Tucker—to expose the bitter truth, even if it means staring into the unforgiving eyes of history and cornering a callous killer poised to pounce.<br /><br /><b>Praise for the Mrs. Murphy Mysteries by Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie Brown </b><br />  <br /> “As feline collaborators go, you couldn’t ask for better than Sneaky Pie Brown.”<b><i>—The New York Times Book Review</i></b><br />  <br /> “Mrs. Murphy mysteries are fun, sweet, and beautifully adventurous.”<b>—<i>Bustle</i></b><br />  <br /> “Brown [is] the queen of the talking animal cozy.”<b>—<i>Publishers Weekly</i></b><br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

<p>'Tis the week before Christmas, and antiques dealer Weezie Foley is in a frenzy to do up her shop right for the Savannah historical district decorating contest, which she fully intends to win. Her motif is Graceland Blue Christmas, with lots of tinsel, an aluminum tree, and enough tacky retro doodads to fill the Grand Ole Opry. But no sooner is she certain she's one-upped the trendy shop around the corner when Weezie notices things going strangely missing from her display.</p><p>Despite the petty burglaries of her mysterious midnight visitor, Weezie still has high hopes for the holiday. Perhaps even an engagement ring is in the offing from her chef boyfriend, though Daniel, usually moody around the yuletide, seems even more distant than ever. Throw in some seasonal eccentricities from Weezie's decidedly odd family, a miraculous 1950s Christmas-tree pin, and a little help from the King (Elvis!) himself, and even Scrooge would have to agree there's real magic in the Savannah air this Christmas</p>

<p>In Alissa Nutting’s novel <em>Tampa</em>, Celeste Price, a smoldering 26-year-old middle-school teacher in Florida, unrepentantly recounts her elaborate and sociopathically determined seduction of a 14-year-old student.<br /> <br />Celeste has chosen and lured the charmingly modest Jack Patrick into her web. Jack is enthralled and in awe of his eighth-grade teacher, and, most importantly, willing to accept Celeste’s terms for a secret relationship—car rides after dark, rendezvous at Jack’s house while his single father works the late shift, and body-slamming erotic encounters in Celeste’s empty classroom. In slaking her sexual thirst, Celeste Price is remorseless and deviously free of hesitation, a monstress of pure motivation. She deceives everyone, is close to no one, and cares little for anything but her pleasure.<br /> <br /><em>Tampa</em> is a sexually explicit, virtuosically satirical, American Psycho–esque rendering of a monstrously misplaced but undeterrable desire. Laced with black humor and crackling sexualized prose, Alissa Nutting’s <em>Tampa</em> is a grand, seriocomic examination of the want behind student / teacher affairs and a scorching literary debut.</p>
