It’s December! Here in Indiana, we are anxiously awaiting our first snowfall (OK–at least I am) and spending cozy afternoons curled up under a blanket with a good book and a cup of coffee is pretty much my default activity right now. I love December–the days are short, the air is crisp and as the year draws to a close it’s a time of reflection and anticipation for the new year.
No matter which holiday you choose to celebrate, December is a time for family and friends, for peace and goodwill toward your fellow man.

I absolutely love medieval history, and there’s nothing I love seeing more than a new book pop up for my Kindle. This is the story of Isabella, consort of King Edward II of England.

She learns to navigate the court, subverting Edward’s plans and setting England on a new course–one that will change the course of history forever.
If WWII history is your thing, then this account of the very first integrated intelligence operation in history and how it helped to win the war will keep you intrigued for hours.

There’s nothing better than a good romance novel on a snowy day. And it’s even better if it’s a Christmas novel! In this first book in the Love in Lenox series, Georgia Cole has been volunteered by her grandmother to direct a play at her hometown community theater. She is less than thrilled to find out that she’ll be working with her childhood crush, but he is determined to thaw the ice around her heart and prove to her that Christmas doesn’t have to be cliche.
“A little nonsense now and then…is relished by the wisest men.” And a little nonsense in the form of a fun “whodunnit” is just what the librarian ordered!

When a body is found in the woods, and the local constable goes off in the wrong direction, Lady Emily Hardcastle soon realizes that there is no such things as a nice quiet life in the country!
As wonderful as this time of year can be, it is also a season of frantic rushing. We find ourselves trying to create the “perfect” experience and making sure that everyone is happy can leave us feeling stretched thin.

Her warm style will engage you immediately, and she’ll walk every step of the journey right beside you.
