Books on Sale: Two Jill Mansell Novels, A New Adult, and Historical Fiction

 Book Thinking of You
Thinking of You by Jill Mansell is $1.99 right now. This is a contemporary romance featuring an “empty nest” heroine and reviews say it has plenty of emotion and humor. It has a 3.76-star average on GR, and while some readers say it took some time to set up the plot, once the mirrored storylines between the mother and the daughter got going, the book was charming and fun.

 When Ginny Holland's daughter heads off to university, Ginny is left with a severe case of empty nest syndrome. To make matters worse, the first gorgeous man she's laid eyes on in years has just accused her of shoplifting. So, in need of a bit of company, Ginny decides to advertise for a lodger, but what she gets is lovelorn Laurel.

With Laurel comes her dangerously charming brother, Perry and the offer of a great new job, and things begin looking up…until Ginny realizes that her potential boss is all too familiar. Is it too late for Ginny to set things right after an anything but desirable first impression?

Staying at Daisy's

Staying at Daisy's by Jill Mansell is $2.99 right now. This book has been on sale previously, and when I asked for Mansell recommendations awhile back, Jessica tweeted to me that this was her first Mansell novel. (And Jill Mansell responded with a link to the hotel where this book is set – which is pretty neat.) Staying at Daisy's has a 3.8-star average, and from the reviews, it seems Daisy is one of those characters who manages and takes care of everyone around her. Anyone's catnip alarm going off?

If you're looking for a hotel where anything can happen, try staying at Daisy's…

Daisy MacLean runs the country house hotel owned by her flamboyant father, Hector. When she hears who's about to get married there, she isn't worried at all – her friend Tara absolutely promises there won't be any trouble between her and ex-boyfriend Dominic, whom she hasn't seen for years. But Daisy should be worried. Dominic has other ideas. And seeing Tara again sets in motion a chaotic train of events with far-reaching consequences for all concerned.

While Daisy spends the ensuing months doing battle with Dev Tyzack (Dominic's so-called best man), Tara battles with her conscience. Meanwhile, Hector's getting up to all sorts with…well, that's the village's best kept secret. And then Barney turns up, with a little something belonging to the husband Daisy's been doing her best to forget. That's the thing about hotels, you never know who you're going to meet. Or whether they're going to stay…

Book Clara and Mr. Tiffany

Clara and Mr. Tiffany by Susan Vreeland is $1.99 right now. This is historical biographical fiction based on the true story of the woman behind Louis Comfort Tiffant's stained glass designs. The book has a 3.5-star average, and while some readers found it difficult to get into and didn't like Clara much, other readers loved being transported back in time to turn of the century New York City. This might make a great gift to a reader you know who loves historical fiction and art history. 

Against the unforgettable backdrop of New York near the turn of the twentieth century, from the Gilded Age world of formal balls and opera to the immigrant poverty of the Lower East Side, bestselling author Susan Vreeland again breathes life into a work of art in this extraordinary novel, which brings a woman once lost in the shadows into vivid color.

It’s 1893, and at the Chicago World’s Fair, Louis Comfort Tiffany makes his debut with a luminous exhibition of innovative stained-glass windows, which he hopes will honor his family business and earn him a place on the international artistic stage. But behind the scenes in his New York studio is the freethinking Clara Driscoll, head of his women’s division. Publicly unrecognized by Tiffany, Clara conceives of and designs nearly all of the iconic leaded-glass lamps for which he is long remembered.

Clara struggles with her desire for artistic recognition and the seemingly insurmountable challenges that she faces as a professional woman, which ultimately force her to protest against the company she has worked so hard to cultivate. She also yearns for love and companionship, and is devoted in different ways to five men, including Tiffany, who enforces to a strict policy: he does not hire married women, and any who do marry while under his employ must resign immediately. Eventually, like many women, Clara must decide what makes her happiest—the professional world of her hands or the personal world of her heart.
