Magical Realism for Non-Believers

A solid choice for large collections, especially where memoirs are popular.


The Distance Home

Readers who were horse-crazy girls will recognize Emma's deep emotions and find the story of lost and found love of horses compelling.

Never Too Late

Rita's follow-up to her first novel (Never Too Real) holds high the value of female friendship, and any reader who likes gal pal stories with plenty of glamorous fashion, style, and scandal thrown in will enjoy this novel.

Too Many Cooks

Bate's third food-centric novel (after A Second Bite at the Apple and The Girls' Guide To Love and Supper Clubs) comes complete with a collection of coordinating recipes. With a resolution that is satisfying but not quite happy ever after, the novel is a perfect choice for foodie fans of women's fiction.

Rainy Day Sisters

While dramatic windswept hills and quirky villagers will satisfy the Anglophile reader and a romance for each sister will tug at heartstrings, in the end this novel is a family story about letting go of the past in order to embrace the future.

Summer Secrets

Although Green's (Tempting Fate; Jemima J; Family Pictures) latest has the requisite shopping, gay best friend, and kissing scenes, the theme of alcoholism running throughout lends it a more serious tone. The story line and flawed characters will give readers something to think about when they bring Green's latest to the beach. [See Prepub Alert, 11/24/14.]

You're (Not) the One

Potter has found her stride with this third novel, and anyone whose dream of "the one" has turned into a nightmare will enjoy the quirky premise of this fun book.

This fiction debut often feels like a how-to book on starting a small business—not surprising, as the author is an entrepreneur and real estate expert, who here highlights women's entrepreneurial spirit. Entrepreneurs and women wishing to become small business owners may find this novel interesting.
