Spring Preview 2017

The arrival of spring signals the end of our Spring Preview contests. Many thanks to all who entered --- and a big congratulations to all our winners! You can see the winners here, and below are the books that we believe you’ll be talking about over the next few months.

Debbie Macomber, author of If Not for You

If not for her loving but controlling parents, Beth Prudhomme might never have taken charge of her life and moved to Portland, Oregon, where she’s reconnected with her spirited Aunt Sunshine and found a job as a high school music teacher. If not for her friend Nichole, Beth would never have met Sam Carney, although first impressions have left Beth with serious doubts. Sam is everything Beth is not --- and her parents’ worst nightmare: a tattooed auto mechanic who’s rough around the edges.

Week of August 21, 2017

Paperback releases for the week of August 21st include IF NOT FOR YOU by Debbie Macomber, an emotionally stirring novel that shows how sometimes a choice can seem wrong even though it’s absolutely right; Anna Kendrick's SCRAPPY LITTLE NOBODY, a collection of humorous autobiographical essays by the Academy Award-nominated actress and star of Pitch Perfect, Twilight, Up in the Air, Into the Woods and Trolls; and PILGRIMAGE by Mark K. Shriver, a down-to-earth and deeply intimate portrait of Pope Francis and his faith, based on interviews with the men and women who knew him simply as Jorge Mario Bergoglio.
