The Orphan House

Bennett’s (The Runaway Sisters) new novel is predictable; readers will quickly put together the central mystery, and while the characters are all sympathetic, they’re two-dimensional. However, this book fits neatly into the recent trend of historical fiction exploring past adoptions and orphanages, such as Lisa Wingate’s Before We Were Yours.

The Windsor Knot

A well-crafted, solid addition to any audiobook collection.

The Windsor Knot

A veritable love letter to England’s current monarch, this adult debut by children’s author Bennett (The Look) is a triumph full of royal tidbits and international high jinks. The pivotal character of Rozie adds just the right note of modernity, and readers will be thrilled to know that the second book in the series is due later this year. Strongly recommended for purchase.

Dark Star Rising

This naval adventure in space is recommended for fans of David Weber’s character Honor Harrington and Lois McMaster Bujold’s “Vorkosigan Saga,” as all three combine adventure, espionage, tight-knit crews of adopted families, as well as a mix of governmental shenanigans, warfare, and political corruption.

Owed

In a time when many confront and protest the racism prevalent in our society, Bennett’s new book is vital. Recommended for all collections.

How To Catch a Sinful Marquess

Kind hearted protagonists and a tender, though quite steamy, romance make this a solid entry in the (not-quite-so) disreputable debutantes saga.

The Vanishing Half

With large sections focusing on the viewpoints of Desiree, Jude, Stella, and Kennedy in turn, Bennett allows readers’ perspectives and sympathies to shift, providing empathy for their difficult choices.

When You Wish Upon a Rogue

Bennett delivers a dashing Regency romance featuring a wounded earl and an unyielding heroine with strong convictions. The third of the “Debutante Diaries” (after The Duke Is But a Dream) can easily serve as an introduction to the series.

The Toni Morrison Book Club

All who pick up this book, from Morrison devotees to newcomers, will discover lessons in the literature to apply to their own lives. They will also feel inspired and wish to be part of a Toni Morrison Book Club of their own.
