Spell the Month in Books: March

Hi there! Time for another Spell the Month in Books! I saw this on several blogs, including Carla Loves to ReadBookworm Blogger, and Secret Library Book Blog and thought it looked like fun! It was originally created by Reviews from the Stacks, and the idea is to spell the month using the first letter of book titles.

Publisher: Forever

SynopsisIn this irresistible historical romance debut, a seasoned spy sets out to rescue the childhood friend he once loved from a reputation-destroying rumor—only to discover that she is actually the source.

After enduring five interminable seasons, Lottie Carlisle has had enough of shallow London society, her boring little life, and her uncle Alfred’s meddling. When he demands she accept a proposal by the end of next season or else he will choose a husband for her, she devises a plan: create a scandal shocking enough to make her unmarriageable and spend her spinsterhood far enough away in the countryside where no one will ever recognize her.

Alec Gresham hasn’t seen Lottie since he left his childhood friend without a word five years ago. So he’s not surprised to find her furious when he appears on her doorstep. Especially bearing the news he brings: her uncle is dying, her blasted reputation is still intact, and Lottie must return home. As they make the journey back to her family estate, it becomes increasingly clear that the last five years hasn’t erased their history, nor their explosive chemistry. Can Lottie look past her old heartache and trust Alec, or will his secrets doom their relationship once again?

Publication Date: May 5, 2020

Publisher: St. Martin’s Press

Synopsis: It’s a new season…

Conley Hawkins left her family’s small town newspaper, The Silver Bay Beacon, in the rearview mirror years ago. Now a star reporter for a big-city paper, Conley is exactly where she wants to be and is about to take a fancy new position in Washington, D.C. Or so she thinks.

For small town scandals…

When the new job goes up in smoke, Conley finds herself right back where she started, working for her sister, who is trying to keep The Silver Bay Beacon afloat—and she doesn’t exactly have warm feelings for Conley. Soon she is given the unenviable task of overseeing the local gossip column, “Hello, Summer.”

And big-time secrets.

Then Conley witnesses an accident that ends in the death of a local congressman—a beloved war hero with a shady past. The more she digs into the story, the more dangerous it gets. As an old heartbreaker causes trouble and a new flame ignites, it soon looks like their sleepy beach town is the most scandalous hotspot of the summer.

  1. What a great mix of books for March, Yvo. I have read Hello Summer and it was good, not her best, but enjoyable. I also have The Awakening on my shelf upstairs, but haven’t gotten to it yet.

  2. This challenge is so much harder than I expected! I took it for this month (April), but did it on Instagram instead of WordPress (so far). I gave you a shout-out so I hope it sends some people your way. 🙂 (I can’t believe I wasn’t actually following you yet! I could have sworn I was! I creep over here more often than to most blogs. 🙂 )

      1. I was surprised how hard R and P were for me. I would have expected to have read more books that start with such common letters. Thanks for the like on Instagram. I hadn’t realized you were on that platform too. 🙂
