If you love getting lost in history, here are three new novels out this month for your enjoyment:
SLEEP IN PEACE TONIGHT by James McManus
Harry Hopkins, FDR’s most trusted advisor, is sent to negotiate with Churchill, but found himself becoming personally involved with a woman soldier in war-torn London. “The appeal of a WWII love story, especially one set in London during the Blitz, is timeless. Evoking Herman Wouk’s pop-lit classic THE WINDS OF WAR, this hypnotically entertaining tale gets the smoky, whiskey-fueled mood just right, all the while seamlessly melding the history and the star-crossed romance.”
THE LODGER by Louisa Treger
When Dorothy Richardson and H.G. Wells meet, the attraction between them is undeniable. Unfortunately, Wells, aka Bertie, is married to Dorothy’s friend, Jane. As time passes, Dorothy and Bertie grow closer but everything changes when a woman named Veronica enters the picture. “In her first novel, Treger vividly depicts the allure of forbidden love and the bravery of a woman who is utterly alone in the world yet unafraid of exploring her creativity.” — Booklist
THE TUDOR VENDETTA by C. W. Gortner
Upon the death of Mary I (Bloody Mary), Elizabeth I takes the throne and Brendan Prescott is called to aid the young queen amid a realm plunged into chaos and a court rife with conspiracy in this riveting historical novel. “The third of Gortner’s Tudor series is action-packed palace intrigue at its best.” — Booklist
