Kissing Kosher (2023)
Jean Meltzer
"Kissing Kosher is everything readers could want a Jewish romantic comedy to be: sweet, soulful, spirited and stirring!"
The Last Lifeboat (2023)
Hazel Gaynor
"In The Last Lifeboat, beloved historical fiction author Hazel Gaynor illuminates a little known incident from the Second World War: the sinking by German U-boat of a ship carrying children who were being evacuated from Britain. The book tells the harrowing story from the alternating perspectives of Lily, a mother in England faced with the excruciating dilemma of whether to send her children away, and Alice, who escorts the evacuee children and finds herself charged with helping a small group of them survive in a lifeboat for eight days after the ship sinks. With her trademark combination of meticulous research and gifted storytelling, Gaynor weaves a tale that is captivating, heartbreaking and unforgettable."
