My finds this week:

The Queen's Dollmaker

Romancing Miss Bronte

A fictional look at the life of Charlotte Bronte and her own chance to find love. Thank you Bookfan for this find!

Saving Maddie
By Varian Johnson

Joshua Wynn is the well-behaved teenage son of a preacher. When his childhood crush, daughter of the former associate pastor returns, his resolve is tested. Maddie is as wild as he is "good".

The Secret History of the Pink Carnation
