What an awesome start to the Cabin Fever series! Ridgway’s latest is heartwarming, extremely romantic and one of those books that will make you feel tingly all over.

Deeper Than Need
by Shiloh Walker

           

This is a novel full of tension: There is lots of sexual tension, which makes the romance more real, and there is the tension of a slowly revealed evil, which lurks beneath, bubbling under the entire plotline. The characters lack some of the crystallized focus that is so lovely in many of Walker’s works, but this is book one in a series, so we can expect more details later.

Cover Breakdown: The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton

BY DJ DeSmyter, AUGUST 27, 2014 | PERMALINK

The moment I saw the cover for The Miniaturist, I knew it would be perfect for our Cover Breakdown series, and as soon as you see it, you'll know why.

But Nella's life changes when Johannes presents her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet-sized replica of their home. To furnish her gift, Nella engages the services of a miniaturist–an elusive and enigmatic artist whose tiny creations mirror their real-life counterparts in eerie and unexpected ways ...
