• Paris is always a good idea

    Paris is always a good idea by Jenn McKinlay is $1.99! From the reviews, this seems like it leans more towards fiction with strong romantic elements, rather than a full blown contemporary romance. Have you read this?

    It’s been seven years since Chelsea Martin began her year-long European adventure after college. Since then, she’s lost her mother to cancer and seen her sister marry twice, while Chelsea has thrown herself into work, becoming one of the most talented fundraisers for the American Cancer Coalition, and with the exception of one colleague annoyingly competent, Jason Knightley’s status as the most talented fundraiser is indisputable.

    When her introverted mathematician father announces that he is remarrying, Chelsea is forced to accept that her life stopped after her mother’s death and that the last time she can remember being happy, in love or enjoying her life it was the year off. Inspired to retrace her steps – to find Colin in Ireland, Jean Claude in France and Marcelino in Italy – Chelsea hopes that one of the three men who stole her heart so many years ago can help her find it again. .

    From the start of her journey nothing goes as planned, but as Chelsea reconnects with her old self, she also finds love in the last place she’d expect.

  • Sadie

    Sadie by Courtney Summers

    RECOMMENDED: Sadie by Courtney Summers is $1.99! This is a young adult thriller that I thought was very good. It came out right at the height of the true crime stuff and the added podcast element to the book definitely played into that.

    A lost girl on a journey of revenge and a TV Shows-as a podcast that follows clues she left behind.

    Sadie has not had an easy life. Raised alone, she has raised her sister Mattie in an isolated small town, trying her best to ensure a normal life and keep her head above water.

    But when Mattie is found dead, Sadie’s whole world comes crashing down. After a somewhat botched police investigation, Sadie is determined to bring her sister’s killer to justice and hits the road following a few clues to find him.

    When West McCray – a radio personality who works on a segment about small, forgotten towns in America – hears Sadie’s story at a local gas station, he becomes obsessed with finding the missing girl. He starts his podcast as he traces Sadie’s journey, trying to figure out what happened, hoping to find her before it’s too late.

    Courtney Summers has written the first book of her career. Sadie it’s propulsive and harrowing and will keep you hooked until the last page.

  • The unfit heiress

    The Unfit Heiress by Audrey Clare Farley

    The unfit heiress by Clare Audrey Farley is $3.99! I mentioned this non-fiction title in a previous Get Rec’d and definitely suggested it for people who love Old Hollywood settings and family scandals. However, it is extremely sad and involves taking away a woman’s bodily autonomy, which may not be something you want to dig right now.

    For the readers of Henrietta’s immortal life is missing AND Ghost of Fifth Avenuea page-turning drama of fate, eugenics and women’s reproductive rights, framed by the sordid court battle between Ann Cooper Hewitt and her socialist mother.

    In the late twentieth century, American women began to reject Victorian entitlement in favor of passion and life outside the home. This alarmed the authorities, who feared that a few “over-sexed” women could destroy civilization if allowed to reproduce and pass on their defects. Set against this backdrop, The unfit heiress shows the struggle for inheritance, both genetic and monetary, between Ann Cooper Hewitt and her mother Maryon.

    In 1934, aided by a eugenics law in California, socialite Maryon Cooper Hewitt had her “promiscuous” daughter declared brainless and sterilized without her knowledge. She did this to deprive Ann of millions of dollars from her father’s estate, which contained a condition to bear children. When a sensational court case ensued, the American public was stunned. So were the eugenicists, who saw an opportunity to limit reproductive rights in America for decades to come.

    This gripping story unfolds through the brilliant research of Audrey Clare Farley, who captures the inner lives of these women on the page and poses questions that remain relevant today: What does it mean to be “unfit” for motherhood? In the battle for reproductive rights, can we forgive the women who oppose us? And can we forgive our mothers if they are the ones who cause the deepest wounds?
