Yellow Crocus

In 1837, Lisbeth Wainwright is born to the white mistress of a sprawling Virginia plantation. Seconds later, she is delivered into the arms of her black wet nurse, Mattie. For a field hand like Mattie, her transfer to the big house is supposed to be considered an honor—except that the move tears Mattie away from her beloved grandfather and her infant son, Samuel. But Mattie is a slave, with no say in the matter, and so she devotes herself to her master’s daughter, though she longs to be raising her own child. Growing up under Mattie’s tender care, little Lisbeth adopts the woman’s deep-seated faith in God, her love of music and black-eyed peas, and the tradition of hunting for yellow crocuses in the early days of spring.

By Lani Diane Rich / Genre: Romance / Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars (21 reviews)

The Comeback Kiss

The thing about being the one who got away is that you really need to stay gone.

Petty thief Dermot “Finn” Finnegan came back to Lucy’s Lake, Vermont, to do one thing—return the car he’d stolen from his high school flame, Tessa, the night he’d disappeared ten years ago. The plan was to be in and out with no one the wiser, especially not Tessa, but when a mysterious fire breaks out and he reluctantly saves the day, Finn’s plans are all shot to hell, along with his ability to resist the love he left behind.

Tessa Scuderi never expected to see Finn again, and that was fine by her. The truth about the teeny-tiny felony they committed could threaten her custody of her teenage sister, Izzy, and getting him out of town is job one. But as the mystery of everything that happened that night ten years ago—including her mother’s death in a strange fire—starts to unravel, Finn gets all weird and loyal. Can love survive lies, theft and arson? There’s only one way to tell…

Memoir of a Mermaid: When, At Last, He Found Me

“Full of adventure and suspense and with a touch of a love story, this book had me very interested right until the end.”

Seraphin Shedd wanted her high school graduation day to be different, and by different, she meant ordinary. In a life led by tragedy, a break from the flashbacks would have been a welcomed relief. Instead, after the disappearance of her beloved teacher, Ms. Dorah Zebedee, her memories became increasingly more vivid. Only one person, Joseph Merrick, knows where to find Ms. Z, but he’s not eager to help. Unaccommodating and mysterious, Joseph brings Seraphin to an emotional breaking point. If she can learn to trust him, she just might uncover the mystery behind her heartbreaking past. Though, she can’t help but wonder if his interest in her is purely for personal gain, or will he prove to be a loyal friend?
