The Cash Countess Rapunzel meets "Downton Abbey" in this sweet Gilded Age romance! Miss Cordelia Jones is an American Princess, but her story is no fairytale. Eighteen-year-old Cordelia Jones is locked in her tower until she promises to marry Lord Thomas Ashby, the eighth Earl of Farnham. Cordelia doesn’t want to leave her American home or Stuyvesant Bradley, whom she has loved since childhood. But Stuyvesant leaves on a trip and Cordelia is pressured by her overbearing mother to marry a stranger. Coerced into a loveless marriage, Cordelia finds herself an alien in a decaying English country house where customs and manners are so different from home. Worst yet, accidents seem to befall her at every corner. The more she begins to care for her husband, the more perilous her life becomes. Is she unlucky, or is someone trying to kill the newest cash countess?

Sanctuary for Seers by Kathleen Baldwin

  SANCTUARY FOR SEERS by Kathleen Baldwin Review: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I absolutely devoured the last book in the Stranje House series. Seraphina is called a mouse, but she shows her strength and her power to heal throughout the story. I love how she picks up on little details like Sherlock Holmes, but she also sees demons (so cool). The girl that was abandoned by her family and often overlooked shines when she finally accepts herself and helps others heal from their trauma. Author Kathleen Baldwin does offer the exciting conclusion and final battle this series deserves, but the beauty is in the details.  I love all the books in the Stranje House series and I would highly recommend them to teens and adults.  #spygirls #adventure #mystery #romance #regency

Canary Girls by Jennifer Chiaverini

Canary Girls by Jennifer Chiaverini Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ A fascinating story about female munition workers during WWI who also played football (soccer); they were called the Canary girls. There are three POVs and they are all compelling. April is young and joins the factory for better hours and pay then being in service. Lucy’s husband is a soldier and she works to be able to keep their home and meet the bills. She will also do anything to bring her husband home and hopes her contribution makes a difference. Helen’s father was German and she’s a suffragette. She marries Mr. Purcell whose father owns several factories. One of which is converted to munitions. The TNT in the bombs turns the women’s skin yellow and bleached the color from their hair. Some munitionettes even died from blood poisoning. The characters and their lives are fascinating. The author truly brings this time period and these incredible women to life. A must read for all historical fiction fans. Don’t miss the author’s note
