Happy Pub Week to so many fantastic new fall reads, including this one…

Happy Pub Week to Melissa Payne & her new novel ‘The Night of Many Endings‘, released on 10/19! Thank you @getredprbooks #lakeunionpublishing for my gift copy of the book!

If you grew up roaming the aisles of your local library, hiding in its corners, spending hours reading in a corner head deep in a book, or if you loved the 80s classic ‘The Breakfast Club’ where a group of teens from various social classes find common ground, then you will love this open-hearted, emotionally resonant novel.

“I heard a powerful quote from a librarian that libraries are perhaps the last place in society where they welcome you, where you don’t have to buy or believe anything. So, I wanted to write about a library that faces real challenges every day, & that brings strangers together. To explore how it’s easy to make assumptions about people rather than wait & get to know someone.”- Melissa Payne

From the bestselling author of ‘Memories in the Drift’ & ‘The Secrets of Lost Stones’, comes ‘The Night of Many Endings‘, an emotionally rich, feel-good novel about hope, second chances, & seeing the world through someone else’s eyes.

Orphaned at a young age & witness to her brother’s decline into addiction, Nora Martinez has every excuse to question the fairness of life. Instead, the openhearted librarian in the small Colorado community of Silver Ridge sees only promise. She holds onto the hope that she’ll be reunited w/ her missing brother & does what she can at the town library. It’s her home away from home, but it’s also a sanctuary for others who, like her brother, could use a second chance.

There’s Marlene, an elderly loner who believes that, apart from her husband, there’s little good left in the world; Jasmine, a troubled teen; Lewis, a homeless man w/ lost hope & one last wish; & Vlado, the security guard who loves a good book &, from afar, Nora.

As a winter storm buries Silver Ridge, this collection of lonely hearts takes shelter in the library. They’ll discover more about each other, & themselves, than they ever knew—& Nora will be forced to question her brother’s disappearance in ways she never could have imagined. No matter how stranded in life they feel, this fateful night could be the new beginning they didn’t think was possible.

As a middle child, Melissa Payne was born to tell stories.
What started with blaming her brother for breaking the car window evolved to a graduate thesis that she desperately wishes she could rewrite to blogging on motherhood and marriage.
Now she likes to create stories set in wild and beautiful places with characters in flawed and imperfect relationships, whether that’s between a mother and a daughter, friends or strangers.
And imagining all of it with just a hint of the ethereal, a whisper of something beyond what we can see and a sense that it’s all for a purpose.

(Click HERE to view the post on Instagram & enter the giveaway to win a copy of today’s featured novel! Give the post a LIKE and/or a SHARE to show your support of the author & me, too!😉)

📕In a modern & twisty retelling of ‘Jane Eyre’, a young woman must question everything she thinks she knows about love, loyalty, & murder. The past may haunt her, but the truth may just kill her…

📕Jane has lost everything: job, mother, relationship, even her home. A friend calls to offer an unusual deal –a cottage above the crashing surf of Big Sur on the estate of his employer, Evan Rochester. In return, Jane will tutor his teenage daughter. She accepts.

📕But nothing is quite as it seems at the Rochester estate. Though he’s been accused of murdering his glamorous & troubled wife, Evan Rochester insists she drowned herself. Jane is skeptical, but she still finds herself falling for the brilliant & secretive entrepreneur & growing close to his daughter.

📕And yet her deepening feelings for Evan can’t disguise dark suspicions aroused when a ghostly presence repeatedly appears in the night’s mist & fog. Jane embarks on an intense search for answers & uncovers evidence that soon puts Evan’s innocence into question. She’s determined to discover what really happened that fateful night, but what will the truth cost her?

📖’Mrs Rochester’s Ghost‘ is a solid, modernized retelling/interpretation of the original, & I enjoyed this better than the original that I was forced to read in HS, when I had zero interest in historical fiction. It’s gothically atmospheric, mysterious, chilling & engaging.

From Lindsay Marcott: I always knew I wanted to be a writer & began by free-lancing articles to Harpers, Rolling Stone, Vogue, & Working Woman. My first novel, written under Lindsay Maracotta, was the thriller ‘Hide & Seek’. This was followed by the national bestselling ‘Everything We Wanted’.
After moving to Los Angeles & working among the beautiful, the bad, & the ugly of Hollywood, I wrote the critically acclaimed ‘Dead Is The New Fabulous’ mystery series, twice a Sisters in Crime Best Book & made numerous Ten Best Mystery lists. It was great fun to co-produce a film based on the series for the Hallmark Channel.
