  • Never Fall for Your Fiancee

    Never Fall for Your Fiancee by Virginia Heath

    Never Fall for Your Fiancee by Virginia Heath is $2.99! This is book one in the Merriwell Sisters series. I don’t mind an illustrated cover, but I’m not loving this one. Have any of you read this?

    The first in a new historical rom-com series, a handsome earl hires a fake fiancée to keep his matchmaking mother at bay, but hilarity ensues when love threatens to complicate everything.

    The last thing Hugh Standish, Earl of Fareham, ever wants is a wife. Unfortunately for him, his mother is determined to find him one, even from across the other side of the ocean. So, Hugh invents a fake fiancée to keep his mother’s matchmaking ways at bay. But when Hugh learns his interfering mother is on a ship bound for England, he realizes his complicated, convoluted but convenient ruse is about to implode. Until he collides with a beautiful woman, who might just be the miracle he needs.

    Minerva Merriwell has had to struggle to support herself and her two younger sisters ever since their feckless father abandoned them. Work as a woodcut engraver is few and far between, and the Merriwell sisters are nearly penniless. So, when Hugh asks Minerva to pose as his fiancée while his mother is visiting, she knows that while the scheme sounds ludicrous, the offer is too good to pass up.

    Once Minerva and her sisters arrive at Hugh’s estate, of course, nothing goes according to his meticulous plan. As hilarity and miscommunication ensue, while everyone tries to keep their tangled stories straight, Hugh and Minerva’s fake engagement starts to turn into a real romance. But can they trust each other, when their relationship started with a lie?

  • The Complete Vegetarian Cookbook

    The Complete Vegetarian Cookbook by America's Test Kitchen

    The Complete Vegetarian Cookbook by America’s Test Kitchen is $8.99! Definitely higher than what we usually feature, but the full price is $35. I own this one and love it. It really has a ton of recipes and is accommodating of many restrictions.

    Best-Selling vegetarian cookbook destined to become a classic.

    Everyone knows they should eat more vegetables and grains, but that prospect can be intimidating with recipes that are often too complicated for everyday meals or lacking in fresh appeal or flavor. For the first time ever, the test kitchen has devoted its considerable resources to creating a vegetarian cookbook for the way we want to eat today. The Complete Vegetarian Cookbook is a wide-ranging collection of boldly flavorful vegetarian recipes covering hearty vegetable mains, rice and grains, beans and soy as well as soups, appetizers, snacks, and salads.

    More than 300 recipes are fast (start to finish in 45 minutes or less), 500 are gluten-free, and 250 are vegan and are all highlighted with icons on the pages. The book contains stunning color photography throughout that shows the appeal of these veggie-packed dishes. In addition, almost 500 color photos illustrate vegetable prep and tricky techniques as well as key steps within recipes.

  • The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires

    The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix

    The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix is $2.99! Several other Hendrix titles are also on sale this week. Carrie reviewed this one and gave it a B:

    Truthfully, if I had known what I was getting into, I doubt I would have read this book. And yet I’m so glad I did, because this, among other things, is a story about reading whatever the heck we want to read and the power of women when they decide to unite, both of which are themes that are Relevant to my Interests, Oh, Yeah.

    Fried Green Tomatoes and Steel Magnolias meet Dracula in this Southern-flavored supernatural thriller set in the ’90s about a women’s book club that must protect its suburban community from a mysterious and handsome stranger who turns out to be a blood-sucking fiend.

    Patricia Campbell had always planned for a big life, but after giving up her career as a nurse to marry an ambitious doctor and become a mother, Patricia’s life has never felt smaller. The days are long, her kids are ungrateful, her husband is distant, and her to-do list is never really done. The one thing she has to look forward to is her book club, a group of Charleston mothers united only by their love for true-crime and suspenseful fiction. In these meetings, they’re more likely to discuss the FBI’s recent siege of Waco as much as the ups and downs of marriage and motherhood.

    But when an artistic and sensitive stranger moves into the neighborhood, the book club’s meetings turn into speculation about the newcomer. Patricia is initially attracted to him, but when some local children go missing, she starts to suspect the newcomer is involved. She begins her own investigation, assuming that he’s a Jeffrey Dahmer or Ted Bundy. What she uncovers is far more terrifying, and soon she–and her book club–are the only people standing between the monster they’ve invited into their homes and their unsuspecting community.

  1. KitBee says:

    I thought the Virginia Heath was just okay. I love a fake relationship plot, but this one strained belief, and the book was not as funny as it wanted to be. Also, I don’t mind illustrated covers, but I do want the characters to look as they’re described in the book — Hugh is supposed to be blond!

  2. Empress of Blandings says:

    I also don’t mind illustrated covers as such, but I did think for a moment that the lady was being haunted by a tiny earl, floating gently over the shrubbery.

  3. DiscoDollyDeb says:

    It’s a shame the Jayci Lee books don’t have their original Harlequin Desire covers—especially THE “I DO” DILEMMA (aka, TEMPORARY WIFE TEMPTATION)—as they were beautifully done and featured attractive Asian models without any sort of fetishizing.

  4. Star says:

    What I want to understand is why “illustrated cover” seems to all but exclusively mean “cartoony rom-com cover.” There’s a range of illustrated styles, and yet 90% of what we get in romance are these flat, highly saturated, unnuanced covers that are often tonally inappropriate.

    I always say that I hate illustrated covers, but I feel like I shouldn’t have to mean that, if that makes sense? I hate the execution in the style romance has decided to go all in on, but I’m not violently opposed to the concept in principle.

  5. flchen1 says:

    @DiscoDollyDeb, I feel the exact same. I remember how moved I was when I first saw the original cover for Temporary Wife Temptation–I’ve been reading Harlequins for decades, and this was the first cover I’d seen with two Asian models on it. I nearly cried.

  7. Kolforin says:

    NEVER FALL FOR YOUR FIANCÉ cover: I like the woman and railroad; the man loitering on the lawn, not so much.

    THE COMPLETE VEGETARIAN COOKBOOK is available and on sale at Kobo, too (oddly the full price listed there is $18, not $35). https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-complete-vegetarian-cookbook

    Going for the cookbook and the Jayci Lee.

  8. Kolforin says:

    “I like the woman and railroad railing“, thanks autocorrect.

  9. HeatherS says:

    “Temporary Wife Temptation” had a GORGEOUS cover. Stunning. Amazing. You KNEW you were getting a contemporary romance with Asian MCs. The thing I hate about the illustrated covers is that it does very easily allow for the characters’ identities to be erased/whitewashed if you’re just looking at them right quick.

    I really wish photo covers would make a comeback. My coworker was just having to listen to me grumble about the absolute snoozefest they picked for the cover of Casey McQuiston’s next book. The characters don’t even have facial features! They’re literally a blank white canvas wearing colorful map shirts!

  10. Susan/DC says:

    I think I’ve made this comment before about TEMPORARY WIFE TEMPTATION, but here goes anyway. I found the book only “meh” because the hero and heroine spent too much time lusting after each other to the detriment of actual character development. However, the cover models were gorgeous. I still would have preferred more well-rounded protagonists, but the cover made the mental lusting understandable, even if not enough to make the book a keeper.

  12. ReadKnitSnark says:

    I went to check out the vegerarian cookbook, but I apparently already own it? I need to dive in. I got myself a Dutch Oven for Christmas, and I’m loving it. It’s a 4L one, and I love all the room to add more vegetables to a regular recipe! It’s got me cooking again, a habit I got out of during the quarantimes.

    Amanda, I made that yummy chicken noodle soup recipe (https://sallysbakingaddiction.com/lightened-creamy-chicken-noodle-soup) that you recommended as I happened to have all the ingredients—or close enough—in my kitchen, and it was still delicious on the third day. A little mushy—but that’s on me because I only had thin noodles in the pantry—but delicious. Next time, I’ll use thicker, bigger noodles.
