Hello, fellow book lovers, Jeremiah here.
For this month, I have selected a small collection of books to honor Women’s History Month. Each of these are debut books from women authors, which have received good critical acclaim.
So, log in, put the books on hold, and we’ll get them ready for you.
Looking for Jane / Heather Marshall.
“Clever and satisfying…has the potential to remain pertinent for generations.” –Associated Press
This “powerful debut” (Hello! Canada) for fans of Kristin Hannah and Jennifer Chiaverini is about three women whose lives are bound together by a long-lost letter, a mother’s love, and a secret network of women fighting for the right to choose–inspired by true stories.
“A woman discovers a mysterious letter with a life-shattering confession, and her search for the recipient leads her back to the 1970s when a group of brave women operated an illegal, underground abortion network in Toronto simply called “Jane,” according to the publisher.
For Bake-Off Fans
The Golden Spoon / Jessica Maxwell.
“When production for the tenth season of the hit cooking competition Bake Week begins at the gothic estate of the show’s host and founder, celebrity chef Betsy Martin, everything seems normal.’
“The six contestants are eager to prove their culinary talents over the course of five days, while Betsy struggles for control of the show with her new co-host, the brash and unpredictable Archie Morris.’
“But as the baking competition gets underway, things begin to go awry. At first, it’s merely sabotage-sugar replaced with salt, a burner turned to high-but then someone shows up dead and suddenly everyone’s a suspect”–from the publisher.
Black candle women : a novel / Diane Marie Brown.
A Today Show #ReadWithJenna Book Club Pick
“Follows four generations of the Montrose family, who have been living with a curse that leaves any person they fall in love with dead, stemming back to a Voodoo sorceress in 1950s New Orleans’ French Quarter,” according to the publisher.
Our Best Intentions / Vibhuti Jain.
“Caught in the middle of a criminal investigation after finding her classmate stabbed and bleeding, Angie, an introverted teenager, must navigate conflicting narratives while her father attempts to shield her and protect his hard-earned efforts to assimilate, which overshadows his ability to see right from wrong,” from the publisher.
Stone cold fox / Rachel Koller Croft.
“After years of perfecting the art of the con, Bea sets her sights on Collin Case, the heir to one of the country’s wealthiest families, but Collin’s childhood best friend stands in her way, forcing her to cat-and-mouse game that becomes a matter of life and death,” from the publisher.
