Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 9/6/2020
Welcome to my Sunday book hunt and author gossip. Keep coming back for updates on book releases and news from favorite authors.
- This is an old release, but the series caught my eye. Added plus is that it’s still an ongoing series with the author just releasing book #10, The Kidnapper’s Accomplice.
Title: The Watchmaker’s Daughter
Author: C. J. Archer
Series: Glass and Steele #1
Release date: June 28, 2016
Description: India Steele is desperate. Her father is dead, her fiancé took her inheritance, and no one will employ her, despite years working for her watchmaker father. Indeed, the other London watchmakers seem frightened of her. Alone, poor, and at the end of her tether, India takes employment with the only person who’ll accept her – an enigmatic and mysterious man from America. A man who possesses a strange watch that rejuvenates him when he’s ill.
Matthew Glass must find a particular watchmaker, but he won’t tell India why any old one won’t do. Nor will he tell her what he does back home, and how he can afford to stay in a house in one of London’s best streets. So when she reads about an American outlaw known as the Dark Rider arriving in England, she suspects Mr. Glass is the fugitive. When danger comes to their door, she’s certain of it. But if she notifies the authorities, she’ll find herself unemployed and homeless again – and she will have betrayed the man who saved her life.
With a cast of quirky characters, an intriguing mystery, and a dash of romance, THE WATCHMAKER’S DAUGHTER is the start of a thrilling new historical fantasy series from the author of the bestselling Ministry of Curiosities, Freak House, and Emily Chambers Spirit Medium books.
- I just bought from this author books 1-3 on Audible. I listened to the sample and the narrator sounds pretty good. The description of book #1 sounds excellent. This, also, is a long standing series as book #13, Southern Blood, was released August 6, 2020 and the audiobooks are on Audible.com.
Title: Southern Bound
Author: Stuart Jaffe
Series: Max Porter #1
Release date: June 11, 2012
Description: It was supposed to be a new beginning – good job, good pay, and a lovely home in North Carolina.
But when Max Porter discovers his office is haunted by the ghost of a 1940s detective, he is thrust neck-deep into a world of old mysteries and dangerous enemies.
One in which ghosts, witches, curses, and spells exist. One in which a simple research job can turn deadly.
