Here’s what I’m reading this week:
The Weird Girls by Cecy Robson
Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other 20-something girls—with one tiny exception: they’re products of a backfired curse that has given each of them unique powers that make them, well, a little weird…
The Wird sisters are different from every race on earth—human and supernatural. When human society is no longer an option for them, they move in among the resident vampires, werebeasts, and witches of the Lake Tahoe region. Could this be the true home they’ve longed for? Um, not quite. After the sisters accidentally strip a witch of her powers in a bar brawl, they soon realize the mistake will cost them. Because to take on a witch means to take on her coven. And losing the battle isn’t an option.
The Companion of Lady Holmeshire by Debra Brown
A baby girl is found in a basket on Squire Carrington’s doorstep. She is raised and sent to work as a servant girl for The Countess of Holmeshire. The widowed and unconventional Countess chooses Emma Carrington as a companion and sends her off for finishing with the goal of dragging her along into genteel Victorian society. As a former servant girl and now just a companion, she is sure to be rejected. She has eyes for the young Earl of Holmeshire, but he is engaged by arrangement to a lovely London lady. Tribulations and banned romances of the servants downstairs play into the story humorously as we follow Emma from a stone fortress to a Victorian village and grand London mansions. Great surprises unfold at a Midsummer Night’s Dream Ball that help to solve mysteries that have gradually developed. You are invited to predict the great revelation of the last few pages!
