Oh, the women! I love them. I love their families and their voices

A wonderful affirmation of the life-enhancing potential of female friendship. Margaret Leroy, author of The Soldiers Wife

Pa ris, 1 9 2 3 The dau g h t e r of a s ca n da l ou s mothe r , Delilah Drummond is already notorious, even among Paris society. But her latest scandal is big enough to make even her oft-married mother blanch. Delilah is exiled to Kenya and her favorite stepfathers savanna manor house until gossip subsides. Fairlight is the crumbling, sun-bleached skeleton of a faded African dream, a world where dissolute expats are bolstered by gin and jazz records, cigarettes and safaris. As mistress of this wasted estate, Delilah falls into the decadent pleasures of society. Against the frivolity of her peers, Ryder White stands in sharp contrast. As foreign to Delilah as Africa, Ryder becomes her guide to the complex beauty of this unknown world. Giraffes, buffalo, lions and elephants roam the shores of Lake Wanyama amid swirls of red dust. Here, life is lush and teemingyet fleeting and often cheap. Amidst the wondersand dangersof Africa, Delilah awakes to a land out of all proportion: extremes of heat, darkness, beauty and joy that cut to her very heart. Only when this sacred place is profaned by bloodshed does Delilah discover what is truly worth fighting for and what she can no longer live without.

Fascinated by this culture of whiskey-soaked expats who seem fazed by neither earthquakes nor man-eating leopards, she struggles to find her place among the prickly English wives with whom she is expected to socialize, and the peculiar servants she now finds under her charge. But navigating the tea-garden set will hardly be her biggest challenge. Laylas remote home is not safe from the powerful changes sweeping India on the heels of the Second World War. Their colonial society is at a tipping point, and Layla and Manik find themselves caught in a perilous racial divide that threatens their very lives.

For Hadley Dunn, life has been predictable and uneventful. But that is before she spends her second year of college abroad in Lausanne, a glamorous Swiss city on the shores of Lake Geneva. Lausanne is imbued with the boundless sense of freedom Hadley has been seeking, and it is here she meets Kristina, a beautiful but mysterious Danish girl. The two bond quickly, but as the rst snows of winter arrive, tragedy strikes. Driven by guilt and haunted by suspicion, Hadley resolves to nd the truth about what really happened that night, and so begins a search that will consume her, the city she loves and the lives of two very different men. Set against the backdrop of a uniquely captivating city, THE SWISS AFFAIR is an evocative portrayal of a journey of discovery and a compelling exploration of how our connectionswith people, with placesmake us who we are.

Determined not to be kicked out of her life without a fight, Hunter proposes a bet: if she can convince him she either truly loves or hates him, hell leave the apartmentand leave her alone. But when the man behind Taylors fear of giving up her heart resurfaces, she has to decide: trust Hunter with her greatest secret, or do everything in her power to win that bet and drive him away forever.

Georgia Williams has traveled a hard road from sheltered preachers daughter to struggling single mother. Determined to build a secure future for her baby girl, she takes a job as a night nurse at Jericho Military Hospital. But her precarious world shifts yet again when she meets her newest patient. A marine who nearly died ghting for his country, Lieutenant Christian Howard is a man of duty, honorand deep desires. Something about the scarred war hero touches Georgia, awakening feelings shes tried to keep hidden. One passionate night together changes everything, erupting with consequences neither could have foreseen. Now Georgia faces the most momentous decision of her life. Should she trust Christiana man she barely knowswith the devastating secrets from her past? Could this be a love that will heal and save them both?

They say a painting can have a life of its own.


In the case of Ghosts in the Mind, by Henry Sebastian Hubert, thats more than just an expression. This painting is reputed to come to lifeand to bring death. The artist was a friend of Lord Byron and Mary Shelley, joining them in Switzerland during 1816, the year without a summer. That was when they all explored themes of horror and depravity in their art. Now, almost two hundred years later, the painting appears in New Orleans. Wherever it goes, death seems to follow. Even copies seem to have a strange and evil power! Danielle Cafferty and Michael Quinn, occasional partners in solving crime, are quickly drawn into the case. They begin to make connections between that summer in Switzerland and this spring in Louisiana. Danni, the owner of an eccentric antiques shop, and Quinn, a private detective, have discovered that they have separate but complementary talents when it comes to investigating unusual situations. Trying to blend their personal relationship with the professional lives theyve stumbled into, they learn that they need each other in many ways. Especially as they confront this work of artand evil. The people in the portrait might be dead, but something seems to wake them and free them to commit bloody murder. Cafferty and Quinn must discover what that is. And they have to destroy itbefore it destroys them. New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author HEaTHER GRaHam is a winner of the Romance Writers of Americas Lifetime Achievement Award and the Thriller Writers Silver Bullet. Heather annually hosts the Writers for New Orleans conference to benet both the city and various other causes. She also hosts a ball each year at the RT Booklovers Convention to benet pediatric AIDS foundations. www.eHeatherGraham.com

For marine biologist Julianne Maroney, two weeks in tiny Declans Cross on the south Irish coast is a chance to heal her broken heart. She doesnt expect to attract the attention of FBI agents Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan, who are in Ireland for their own personal retreat.

Ten years ago, art was stolen from a mansion in Declans Cross, but it has never been recovered and the elusive thief never caught. Now, from the moment Julianne sets foot on Irish soil, everything goes wrong. The well-connected American diver who invited her to Ireland has disappeared. And now Emma and Colin are asking questions.

Pablo Picasso is one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century and an enigmatic historical figure. With sparkling insight and passion, MADAME PICASSO offers a unique glimpse at Picassos life and introduces readers to a dazzling and unforgettable heroine. Like the blockbuster bestsellers The Paris Wife by Paula McLain, Z by Therese Anne Fowler and The Aviators Wife by Melanie Benjamin, MADAME PICASSO illuminates the untold story of the powerful woman behind one of the most famous men in history. With painstaking research, veteran writer and historian Anne Girard takes readers from the salon of Gertrude Stein to the glamorous Moulin Rouge and inside the studio and heart of historys most inuential artist. Part love story, part history, MADAME PICASSO is perfect for book clubs and reading groups.
