It was a summer of warmth…. Kate Ryan and her  husband, John, have a rollicking pub in the Irish  village of Mountfern… lovely twelve-year-old  twins… and such wonderful dreams…. It was a summer  of innocence… but all that is about to change  this fateful summer of 1962 when American  millionaire Patrick O’Neill comes to town with his  irresistible charm and a pocketful of money… when love  and hate vie for a town’s quiet heart and old  traditions begin to crumble away…. It was a summer of  love that would never come again…. A time that  has been captured forever in Maeve Binchy’s  compelling family drama… a novel you will never forget.

Winter Solstice – Rosamunde Pilcher

Rosamunde Pilcher’s novel, despite its chilly setting, will warm the hearts of her growing army of loyal fans. Winter Solstice has all the familiar trademarks of a Pilcher saga, spun in her inimitable, homey, beguiling style. The story is told, chapter by chapter, from the perspectives of an eclectic array of characters. Former actress Elfrida–not very good by her own admission–leaves London for a geriatric bolthole in the country where she meets retired schoolmaster and organist, Oscar. Meanwhile, Carrie (Elfrida’s second cousin), returns to London from Austria where she had a brilliant career in the tourist industry, only to find her niece, 14-year-old Lucy, sadly neglected by her selfish mother and equally spoiled grandmother. Finally, handsome Sam is recalled from New York by his company chairman to revive an ailing Scottish textile mill.

Someone Irresistible – Adele Ashworth
Mimi is the daughter of a talented scientific sculptor, and she shares her father’s ability to take giant bones dug from the earth and create models of them for scientists to study and others to marvel over. Nathan is one of that fascinating new breed of scholars, a paleontologist. On the night he was to unveil his great discovery, and take his place among the scientific elite, his wondrous specimen vanished, leaving him a laughingstock. It’s been three long years since then, and Nathan is finally ready to take steps to restore his reputation. His theory is that Mimi stole his astounding find, and he blackmails her into using her talents to set in motion a series of events that should lead him to the missing bones and expose the theft. There’s only one thing wrong with his plan — Mimi wasn’t the thief, and his willingness to forgive her for a crime she didn’t commit riles her even more than his false accusations. But, as they work together to uncover the truth, the totally unscientific attraction between them soon has their heads and hearts spinning as they explore the astonishing depth of passion that they share.
