August Book Haul

August Book Haul

Welcome Everyone!

I didn’t but that may books in August. I went on holidays so I didn’t want to spend the money on things I didn’t need. I really only bought one book and the other two were given to me by my grandma.

 

The Winter Crown by Elizabeth Chadwick

August Book Haul

I picked this one up at Black Bond Books while on vacation in Vancouver. This cover caught my eye and after reading the synopsis decided to buy it. Later I realized it was the second book in the series, the first one being The Summer Crown. I feel like this happens to me all too often.

The Winter Crown is about Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen of England. Eleanor is acting as ruler while Henry II is away in battle. I believe Eleanor would like to be included in the ruling of the kingdom but Henry belittles her and she thinks that he needs her but he doesn’t realize this or doesn’t think he needs her wisdom.

I love royal fiction books and this one sounds great. I will have to keep my eyes out for the first book in the series, so that I can pick this one up.

 

The Lost Girls by Heather Young

August Book Haul

This one my grandma gave to me because she thought that I might be interested in it and it does sound like something I would have picked up on my own.

The Lost Girls is told in two different time periods and perspectives. First one begin summer 1935 in Minnesota at the Evan’s family’s lake house when Emily Evans goes missing and I believe is told from the perspective of Lucy Evans goes missing and I believe it is told from the POV of Lucy Evans one of Emily’s sister. The other time period is told 60 years after that summer where Lucy Evans leaves the Lake house and a notebook about that summer to her grandniece, Justine. Then Justine moves in the lake house to escape a bad relationship and I think upon moving there she begins to look into the mystery of the disappearance of Emily.

It reminds me of The Lake House by Kate Morton. I haven’t read The Lake House yet but the synopsis sounds familiar with it being set at a Lake House where a disappearance occurs. The Lost Girls sounds interesting and can’t wait to read it.

What We Find by Robin Carr

Aug Book Haul

This is the second book that my Grandma gave to me. This one I probably wouldn’t have picked up on my own but it does sound good, so am happy that my grandma gave to me.

What We Find is about Maggie Sullivan, a neuroSurgeon, who is being sued for the death of a patient during an emergency high risk procedure. With the stress of the law suit, Maggie decides to get away from city and goes to her family’s General Store to visit her father and upon her arrival things don’t go quite as planned and finds that she has taken on more responsibilities there. Luckily she meets Cal Jones who is happy to lend a hand.

The next time I am feel like reading a romance I shall pick this one up.

That is all for my book haul, short and sweet, I hope you enjoyed reading and thanks for stopping by. 🙂
