- Torn by Amanda Hocking
Acknowledging that she was different from everyone else wasn’t difficult for Wendy, she’d always felt like an outsider. But a new world and family is a little hard for any girl to accept. Leaving behind the country of her birth, she is determined to fit back into normal life. But the world she’s left won’t let her go that easily.
Kidnapped and imprisoned by her true family’s enemies, Wendy soon learns that the lines between good and evil aren’t as defined as she thought. And those things she’d taken for granted may have been lies all along. With the help of the dangerously attractive Loki, she escapes back to the safety of Förening – only to be confronted by a new threat.
It’s time to make a choice – can she put aside her personal feelings for the sake of her country? Torn between duty and love she must make a choice that could destroy her one chance at true happiness.
Second in a trilogy… Trust me to start in the middle! o.o
- Big Stone Gap by Adriana Trigiani
Big Stone Gap, Virginia is the sort of sleepy hamlet where kids get married and start families at eighteen, and stay for ever. So thirty-five-year old Ave Maria Mulligan is something of an oddity. A self-proclaimed spinster, as the local pharmacist she’s been keeping the townsfolk’s secrets for years.
Now Ave Maria is about to discover a scandal in her own family’s past that will blow the lid right off her quiet, uneventful life. Soon she’s juggling two unexpected marriage proposals and conducting a no-holds-barred family feud.
With an unforgettable cast of characters and a heroine with an extraordinary story to tell, BIG STONE GAP is a wonderfully vibrant, unashamedly feel-good debut.
Popped into a charity shop and snagged these two beauties for 58 pence! WIN.
