Jen Recommends (III)


Garden Spells – Sarah Addison Allen

“A pinch of marigold for affection, a dash of snapdragon to repel evil, finish with rose petals to encourage love, then let nature take its course. It may be the recipe for Claire Waverley’s successful catering business, but when it comes to working its magic on her own love life, she seems to be immune to the charms found only in the plants that have always grown behind the Waverley mansion. Spellbindingly charming!”

The Lace Reader – Brunonia Barry

Towner Whitney, a woman descended from a long line of mind readers and fortune tellers, has survived numerous traumas and returned to her hometown of Salem, Mass., to recover. Any tranquility in her life is short-lived when her beloved great-aunt Eva drowns under circumstances suggesting foul play. Features vivid descriptions of historic Salem and an compelling, intricately woven story.

Mary and Lou And Rhoda and Ted: And all the Brilliant Minds Who Made The Mary Tyler Moore Show a Classic – Jennifer Keishin Armstrong

“Pop-culture gold: a can’t-put-it-down history of The Mary Tyler Moore Show and the misfit genius women (and men) who made it. A delightfully thorough history of the show, evoking in detail the making of a smart ande funny piece of pop-culture history and telling sweet tales about the colorful cast.
