Books for Mom! Buy her books for Mother’s Day

What’s the perfect gift for Mother’s Day? Books, of course. Well, what did you think I was going to say? Chocolate is always a hit around here, but books are… well, books. Hours of entertainment in a compact, portable package.

Favourites

One of my mom’s favourites of mine is:

Cynthia Has a Secret

One day, fifteen-year-old Carmina Knight’s life was perfect, and the next, she’d lost everything. Her family, her home, almost everything that she knew. Alone on the streets, she can’t trust anyone, but she also can’t make it alone.

Neil Crowther is the investigator on the Knight case. He knows that he has to unravel the web of deceit and track Carmina down quickly, or there will be no one left to save.

–Cynthia has a Secret hooked me at the beginning and kept me interested right to the last page. Filled with intriguing characters you won’t soon forget.

–New favorite!

–PD Workman weaves a fascinating tale… Alone and scared, Carmina would rather take to the streets than trust the police her father has warned her against. This is a page-turning novel that will leave you anxious to find out how it all ends.

And some more:

I have asked my author friends for some of their mother’s favourite books, and here are some of them:

Jane Eyre by [Bronte, Charlotte ]Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Brontë

You know this classic. Jane Eyre – an orphan, that nature has given a very strong-willed and independent temper. She spent her childhood, full of hardship and humiliation. Jane’s growing up brings a lot of problems. She got to an orphanage, where she spent her childhood and youth. There, in a very challenging environment, her temper became even more stronger. When she grew up, she felt the need to go further in life, so Jane gave an advert for work and got it as a governess in Thornfield manor. There she fell in love with Mr. Rochester, owner of the estate, that changed her whole life. Received from him a marriage proposal, Jane felt happy perhaps for the first time in her life. Young people were getting ready for the wedding. But in this long-awaited day for them a terrible secret revealed that radically changes their lives…

One for the Money (Stephanie Plum, No. 1): A Stephanie Plum Novel by [Evanovich, Janet]One for the Money, by Janet Evanovich

Janet Evanovich is a wild ride!

Watch out, world. Here comes Stephanie Plum, a bounty hunter with attitude. In Stephanie’s opinion, toxic waste, rabid drivers, armed schizophrenics, and August heat, humidity, and hydrocarbons are all part of the great adventure of living in Jersey.

Out of work and out of money, with her Miata repossessed and her refrigerator empty, Stephanie blackmails her bail bondsman cousin, Vinnie, into giving her a try as an apprehension agent. Stephanie knows zilch about the job requirements, but she figures her new pal, fearless bounty hunter Ranger, can teach her what it takes to catch a crook.

Outlander (Outlander series) by [Gabaldon, Diana]Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon

Claire Randall is leading a double life. She has a husband in one century, and a lover in another…

In 1945, Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon—when she innocently touches a boulder in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of our Lord…1743.

Sanctuary: A dark urban fantasy (Shifter Chronicles Book 1) by [Amade, Melle]Sanctuary, by Melle Amade

Shae is sure the icy rage that claws at her is driving away her friends and pulling her closer to the wrong boy. After all, it’s Aiden she has always secretly wanted, not Callum, who has barely spoken to her in the last year.

But, as her protected life unravels, she discovers the violent supernatural world that lurks in her quiet hometown and the ancient feuds that threaten to destroy both her friends and her family.

Elvis & Me, by Priscilla Beaulieu Presley

Who doesn’t love the King?

Decades after his death, millions of fans continue to worship Elvis the legend. But very few knew him as Elvis the man. Here in her own words, Priscilla Presley tells the story of their love, revealing the details of their first meeting, their marriage, their affairs, their divorce, and the unbreakable bond that has remained long after his tragic death.

A tribute to both the man and the legend, Elvis and Me gives Elvis fans the world over an unprecedented look at the true life of the King of Rock N’ Roll and the woman who loved him.

And yours!
