Book Excerpt :

Originally published as Enchantée, All That Glitters is Gita Trelease’s debut fantasy about an orphaned girl who uses dark magic to save her sister and herself is “a soaring success” (NPR)! Paris is a labyrinth of twisted streets filled with beggars and thieves, revolutionaries and magicians. Camille Durbonne is one of them. She wishes she weren’t... When smallpox kills her parents, Camille must find a way to provide for her younger sister while managing her volatile brother. Relying on magic, Camille painstakingly transforms scraps of metal into money to buy food and medicine they need. But when the coins won’t hold their shape and her brother disappears with the family’s savings, Camille pursues a richer, more dangerous mark: the glittering court of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. Using dark magic forbidden by her mother, Camille transforms herself into a baroness and is swept up into life at the Palace of Versailles, where aristocrats both fear and hunger for magic. As she struggles to reconcile her resentment of the rich with the allure of glamour and excess, Camille meets a handsome young inventor, and begins to believe that love and liberty may both be possible. But magic has its costs, and soon Camille loses control of her secrets. And when revolution erupts, Camille must choose—love or loyalty, democracy or aristocracy, reality or magic—before Paris burns.

Book Short Summary:

In Michael Murphy’s rollicking new Jake & Laura mystery, the hard-boiled writer and the aspiring movie star head for sun-drenched Los Angeles, where a cold-blooded murderer lurks behind the scenes. Just arrived from New York, Broadway actress Laura Wilson is slated to star in Hollywood’s newest screwball comedy. At her side, of course, is Jake Donovan, under pressure to write his next mystery novel. But peace and quiet are not to be had when an all-too-real murder plot intrudes: After a glitzy party, the son of a studio honcho is discovered dead from a gunshot wound. And since Jake exchanged words with the hothead just hours before his death, the bestselling author becomes the LAPD’s prime suspect. In 1930s Tinseltown, anything goes. Proving his innocence won’t be easy in a town where sex, seduction, and naked power run rampant. With gossip columnist Louella Parsons dead-set on publicizing the charges against him, Jake has no choice but to do what everyone else does in the City of Angels: act like someone else. Blackie Doyle, the tough-talking, fist-swinging, womanizing hero from Jake’s novels wouldn’t pull any punches until he exposed the real killer—nor will Jake, to keep the role of a lifetime from being his last. Praise for All That Glitters “Jake and Laura really do remind me of Dashiell Hammett’s Nick and Nora Charles. They are fun, witty, and charming, and the novel is filled with the same kind of 1930s Hollywood glamour that made the film of The Thin Man such a classic.”—Popcorn Reads “Art imitates life imitates art imitates life, with just as terrific results as the first book in this series, The Yankee Club.”—Reading Reality “Michael Murphy has pulled off another successful novel with interesting characters, a riveting story, and a great setting that transports us back to Prohibition-era Hollywood.”—The Book Binder’s Daughter “Murphy has a good thing going with this great new historical mystery series. . . . [They’re] fast-paced and a good look back at an interesting era and the people in it.”—Joyfully Retired “Highly entertaining . . . Mystery lovers, noir fans and lovers of classic movies will really go for this book.”—The Reader’s Hollow “I couldn’t put this book down. It grabbed me right from the start and I was quickly invested in the characters and their lives. . . . A great read and wonderfully fun characters.”—Mystery Playground “You know how it is when you have the perfect cup? The aroma is great, the perfect balance in taste, it’s hot enough to warm your soul, but not too hot to burn your tongue, and the mug fits perfectly in your hands. All the senses are engaged and you forget the world around you. That is this book to a mystery reader- it has the impeccable balance.”—Lilac Reviews

Book Short Summary:

From the Bestselling Author and Television Producer of Masters of Sex, a True Story ofthe Intrigue and Infighting of Condé Nast, Anna Wintour, S. I. Newhouse Jr., and Tina Brown, and Optioned by Sony Television Productions Inside the Condé Nast magazine world run by billionaire S. I. Newhouse Jr., Anna Wintour and Tina Brown were bold and talented British women who fought their way to the top of this male-dominated American industry driven by greed and betrayal. Wintour became an icon of fashion and New York’s high society, while Brown helped define the intersection of literary culture and Hollywood celebrity. They jockeyed for power in the hypercompetitive “off with their heads” atmosphere set up by Newhouse and his longtime creative guru Alex Liberman, two men who for years controlled the glossy Condé Nast magazines that dictated how women should look, dress, and feel. In turning this world upside down, Wintour and Brown challenged the old rules and made Newhouse’s company internationally famous. Ultimately, one of them won in their fascinating struggle for fame and fortune during the height of New York’s gilded age of print—a time before the internet, before 9/11, when the Reagans ruled the White House and Donald Trump was a mere local developer featured on the cover of Newhouse’s publications. This book traces the careers of Wintour and Brown and shows how they and the Condé Nast media empire were major media enablers in the rise of Donald Trump and Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. At its heart, All That Glitters is a parable about the changes in America’s media, where corruption and easy compromises are sprinkled with glitter, power, and glory. Originally titled Newhouse, this revised and updated edition, with a new introduction and afterword, won the 1994 Frank Luther Mott Award for best researched media book of the year.

Book Short Summary:

My name is Kinsley Brogan, and I have a life most people would kill for. I just finished recording my first album, and my songs are being played on country music stations around the globe. I have famous friends and a fancy penthouse apartment, and I’m getting ready to begin my first ever world tour. Then I find out I have breast cancer. To escape the media storm my illness creates, I run to my father’s tiny cabin on the lake, desperate to keep the fight for my life from the public eye. The day I meet Beau Weston is one of the worst days I’ve ever had. Covered in tattoos and heavily muscled, Beau is nothing like the boy I remember from high school. Through his support and friendship, I quickly learn that my famous friends are as phony as the news stories they show up in, and that I am more than the disease the tabloids won’t stop talking about. I also learn that the happiness I’d been searching for may have been right here at home all along. *** All That Glitters is a novelette. It is a standalone and complete story that was written as part of the F*ck Cancer Anthology. ***

Book Short Summary:

A fascinating memoir from one of New Zealand's leading fashion designers. This is Denise's L'Estrange Corbet's honest and frank account of her turbulent life - from her difficult childhood through to her successful business life today. She covers the emotional landscape of her childhood, her malevolent grandmother, her dysfunctional family and most of all the development of her depression. This is a really honest, raw story that shows how mental illness can develop through childhood. Her insights into the causes and effects of depression are enthralling; it's a compelling story of mental illness, written with a great deal of humour. At times, it's like a darkly fascinating version of Bill Bryson: funny anecdotes about childhood with the menacing tinge of depression. Her account of the early years of WORLD, her time as a fashion student in London and her interactions with people in the business are terrific. This is an eye-opener and a page-turner of a book, with great anecdotes about the fashion world and strong, compelling writing about childhood and depression. The foreword is by former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark and all royalties go to the Mental Health Foundation.

An innocent bayou girl lost to New Orleans. One of the most popular storytellers of all time, V.C. Andrews (Flowers in the Attic, My Sweet Audrina) layers psychological suspense with sheer terror in this provocative first book of the classic Landry Family series. Even in the heart of the bayou, innocence can’t last forever.... The only family Ruby Landry has ever known are her loving guardian Grandmere Catherine, a Cajun spiritual healer, and her drunken Grandpere Jack. Although thinking about her dead mother and mysterious father sometimes makes her feel as sad and solemn as the wind sighing through the Spanish moss, Ruby is grateful for what she has. Her life is filled with hope and promise, especially when her attraction to handsome Paul Tate blossoms into a wonderful love affair. But Paul’s wealthy parents forbid him to associate with a poor Landry, and Grandmere urges Ruby to focus on her dream of becoming a great painter. An uncertain future looms.... A shocking scheme of blackmail and deception comes to light when Ruby sees her father for the first time in a faded photograph. Stunned and devastated when Grandmere dies soon after, she is left to seek out an explanation on her own.

Book Short Summary:

Don Carpenter is a talented writer, and a successful and rising talent at a San Francisco public relations firm. But Don finds that PR does not fulfill him. He feels an emptiness, a sense of uncertainty. When he is offered a position on the faculty of a university in Utah where he can not only teach in a solid creative writing workshop environment, but also concentrate on his own creative works, he finds himself at an impasse not uncommon to talented people. What to do? Money, commercial success, creative fulfillment? Don finds some startling answers in an even more startling way. Ducking into an odd shop, the Chateau Occult, during a downpour in downtown San Francisco, Don meets a mysterious woman who inexplicably appears to know more about him than conditions warrant. When she gives Don a small vial of strange blue powder, his journey begins.... and what a journey! Don travels in time back to the days before what we call San Francisco existed. He joins Sam Brannan, leader of the Latter Day Saints (Mormons) who travel from New York by sailing vessel to the little hamlet of Yerba Buena, a sleepy place situated between the Presidio and the Mission Dolores on the shores of San Francisco Bay. Brannan and Brigham Young had agreed that Sam's people would join up with Brigham's trekkers at some point. Until gold is discovered, that is! Don Carpenter travels back and forth to the Gold Rush days of San Francisco and sees the City actually take shape, both physically and, more importantly, spiritually and in its incipient character. The blue powder brings him back again to the heyday of Vigilante rule in the City by the Bay, and Sam Brannan's problems begin to reflect some of the difficulties facing Don Carpenter. When Don's friend, a history professor at Berkeley, assures Don that all he recounts really happened, Don wonders about the meaning of it all. When his alter ego in nineteenth century San Francisco meets a wonderful woman, the situation becomes even more unusual. Don Carpenter is groping towards a solution to his dilemma, and hoping for an answer to his prayers, when circumstances dictate a return to the Chateau Occult, the weird shop where some answers might be had, or maybe not. This time, Don finds a shop that may not be there, but a destiny that surely is. San Francisco has its own magic spell that it casts effortlessly over people. For Don Carpenter, the spell is especially potent, and ultimately life changing.

Fate whisked Ruby from a simple life in the Louisiana Bayou. But her new riches bring more treachery than happiness... Even after a year as a Dumas, Ruby still wonders at the splendor of the family's New Orleans mansion, and rejoices in the love of the father she had never known. But true happiness in her new home is as elusive as d swamp mist. Ruby must carefully avoid a venomous enemy: her stepmother, Daphne, who cringes and sneers at her backwater upbringing. And Ruby's every effort to befriend her twin sister, Gisselle -- especially since Gisselle's crippling accident -- is answered with bitterness and vicious backstabbing.

Meanwhile, Gisselle is on a mission to break every school rule, leaving Ruby to suffer the humiliating punishments. But Ruby doesn't lose hope -- until a terrible tragedy leaves her alone in a world that never really wanted her. Ruby will have to summon every last ounce of her Cajun strength to reclaim her home, her future, and the happiness she once knew....

Book Short Summary:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In Danielle Steel’s thrilling novel, a woman’s legacy—shaped by tragedy, fortitude, and undying devotion—transforms lives and hearts long after she is gone, and fulfills at last her most precious bequest. Faded photographs of a glamorous couple in postwar Europe. Old letters hinting of tragic loss. And a breathtaking array of magnificent jewelry, spectacular stones in exquisite settings. These are the contents of a safe-deposit box long abandoned in a New York City bank. If no heir can be identified, the jewelry will be auctioned. But who was the woman who left such a fortune and no will? Two people, drawn together by chance, begin to unravel the mystery. Jane Willoughby is a law clerk at the surrogate’s court and Phillip Lawton a fine arts expert for Christie’s auction house. They are simply doing their jobs when they come to the bank to inspect the contents of the box. But for both Jane and Phillip the search turns personal—and their efforts to reconstruct an enigmatic life will lead from New York to London and Paris, to Rome and Naples, and a series of stunning revelations. Eighteen-year-old Marguerite Pearson left America with a broken heart in the shadow of World War II. She found a new life in Europe but forever mourned what she left behind. As the truth about Marguerite’s extraordinary history—her forbidden love affair and her family’s treachery—is slowly revealed, more people are drawn into the puzzle that Jane and Phillip have pieced together, and one among them will inherit the most unexpected gift of all.

Book Short Summary:

The Wild Hunt roamed the forest outside of Beth-Hill until the Council bound them for a hundred years. Nevertheless, a century of existence has made an indelible mark not easily forgotten for these ghostly myths that are no longer so ghostly or myth-like... Twelve-year-old Arthur Morgan is small and slight, forced into a life of fairy taxidermy by his father. As a member of the cruel Morgan Household of vampires, Arthur has spent a lifetime being abused by his father and grandmother. In this family, all kowtow to the monstrous duo's iron will in sheer terror of what will be done to them if they disobey. When Arthur meets Iris, a cousin not highly-placed in the Morgan hierarchy, he sees himself in a light he's never wanted to before. He's becoming as cruel as his father, having trapped and killed fairies out in the forest for years. With Iris's influence, Arthur decides to free one of them and, in doing so, meets Maya, a water fairy, who shows him just how horrible and twisted the household he's grown up is--for both the innocent, defenseless fairies and family members that have been unjustly imprisoned by his father and grandmother. Deciding to smuggle those caged out of the household and to safety gives Arthur a sense of power he's never had before. But his secret can't be hidden long. With the help of water fairy and an adult vampire, Arthur and Iris attempt to escape. Even though Arthur is determined not to let his father win this time, he wonders if it's possible to become something other than what his family has decreed he must be to serve them.
