When Roxy loses everything, she finds herself disgraced and penniless. Her only hope is to join forces with Belgian duke Rolfe Van Horne, a longtime film investor. But Rolfe is not who he seems, and he has other plans for Roxy and her movies—plans to support a growing unrest in Europe, plans that could break her heart and endanger her life.

Hook, Line & Sinker by Susan May Warren

The annual Deep Haven fishing contest draws professional and amateur anglers from across the country, but this year, Ross Springer is determined to win the top cash prize. In fact, he has no choice. It’s his last chance to leave a lasting legacy at Bethel College. He just never imagined his fundraising scheme would hook Abigail Cushman, the grad student who reminds him of all they’d had—and lost—every time she glances his way.

Abigail Cushman may not know the difference between a bass and a trout, but how hard can it be to catch a fish? She’s a quick learner, and she’s certain her smarts can net her a win over Ross Springer, the handsome charmer she’s tried to forget since grief tore them apart.

In the ultimate showdown between brains and heart, will Ross and Abby reel in more than they bargained for?

Nightingale in stores today!

Brand new from Summerside Press in stores is Nightingale by Susan May Warren. Wolfgang Yager is an American serving in a German uniform. He’s almost relieved to be captured, interned as a POW in Wisconsin. And he’s also done his good deed by delivering the final letter of a dying American soldier. He has no idea he is sending it to the soldier’s fiancé—Nurse Esther Lange—or that he’ll strike up a correspondence with her that could cost them both their lives. The sweet nightingale Esther didn’t love her fiancé—she was trapped in an engagement after a mistaken night of passion. Still, she grieves him, even as Wolf ’s letters cause her to consider another future. But what happens when the old plans come back to life? A bittersweet love song of the home front war between duty and the heart…a battle where only one will survive. Susan May Warren Susan. . .

Review: The Great Christmas Bowl

The Great Christmas Bowl by Susan May Warren My rating: 5 of 5 starsI do not know whether to consider this a novel or a short story at less than 200 pages, but no matter what category it fits in, it fits under the title of Fabulous! In starting the book, knowing that it was about a woman with five children practically grown, I was unsure that it would be for me as I am a new mom of an 8 week old. I highly doubted that I could relate to someone with so much experience and was uncertain if I would enjoy the read. Yet I love Susie’s writing and could not turn it down. Oh my am I glad that I read this! It is an eye opener and even in such a short page amount one can really find some introspective. The book is full of humor. . .
