THE PARIS KEY Juliet Blackwell: Women's Fiction

Genevieve Martin thought that not all locks should be  opened, but maybe some secrets shouldn't be under lock and key. Moving to Paris teaches her that happiness can be hidden away as easily as pain. Good Read.

BLUEBERRY TRUTH Ute Carbone: Women's Fiction

This is a sweet story about hard truth. Add a great main character and you have a good read with genuine heart.

THE MEMORY OF US Camille di Maio: Women's Fiction

This poignant story of love and loss, repentance and renewal, will take you into the heart of Julianne Westcott. The journey will renew your hope for all who have their dreams stolen.

A FALL OF MARIGOLDS Susan Meissner: Women's Fiction

If you haven't read any of Meissner's books, A Fall of Marigolds is a good place to start. Meissner is a master of stories with two setting--in this one we have a 9-11 widow and a nurse working at Ellis Island in 1911. A Fall of Marigolds is a beautiful story of two young women--Taryn and Clare--who must discover the freedom to love and be loved will never be found if we are stuck in between choices. This is a must read! I'd give it ten stars if I could.

SONG OF SILENCE Cynthia Ruchti: Women's Fiction

This gentle story of grace, hope, forgiveness, and love reveals how music and life both benefit from rest.
