Lady Jayne Disappears

Lady Jayne Disappears
Politano, Joanna Davidson, 1982-

In this delightful debut, a sweet romance, Politano pens a clever story-within-a-story full of Victorian intrigue and ghosts. Aurelie Harcourt's father has just died, and she is leaving the only home she has ever known, Shepton Mallet debtor's prison, with the few things he left her: a trunk full of blank notebooks and his pen name, Nathaniel Droll. Initially planning to abandon his unfinished serial novel, Lady Jayne Disappears,which she has been transcribing for years, Aurelie decides, instead, to continue her father's work when she realizes that her Aunt Eudora's home, Lynhurst Manor, is the setting of her father's fiction. Lady Jayne was Aurelie's mother, and staying in the family home gives her the chance to try to uncover what really happened to her. But not everyone wants the family secrets revealed. Older readers who miss the great gothic romances of Victoria Holt, Phyllis Whitney, and Mary Stewart will enjoy Politano's tale, as will readers looking for a chaste romance. Also recommend to readers who enjoy Lauren Willig's historical romances.--Quillen, C. L. Copyright 2017 Booklist

To Wager Her Heart

To Wager Her Heart
Alexander, Tamera

In post Civil War Nashville, Alexandra Jamison's world is not changing as quickly as she would like. Her parents want her to accept an arranged marriage after her fiance is killed in a train accident. Instead, she fulfills her dream of teaching at Fisk University, the first freedmen's college in the United States, even though it means leaving her privileged lifestyle. Meanwhile, Sy Rutledge has come to Nashville to clear his father's name as the engineer in the fatal train crash and to place a bid on building a rail line. Sy is a brash outsider who needs to learn how to finesse his way into the city's genteel high society. His tutor in Southern etiquette is Alexandra. As the two become better acquainted, they begin to build mutual respect, trust, and love for each other. VERDICT A pleasurable read for both historical fiction and romance fans, this novel doesn't neglect the harsh realities of the time, commenting on the era's racism, and featuring characters who rely on God. Following To Win Her Heart, this third series title may also be read as a stand-alone.
