11/27 I deserve to be Loved by Mz. Robinson
“With one look I knew he was more than a man, he was the living definition of temptation and the eye of the storm I call love…”
As the daughter of one of the South’s most respected and influential ministers, Chrisette Logan has always been expected to carry herself with class and grace. Exceeding her parent’s expectations, Chrisette is a true Southern Belle and a shining star who has earned and receives an abundance of love and respect from her father’s congregation and the community.
When her high school sweetheart and father’s protégé McMillan surprises her with an unexpected proposal, Chrisette feels obligated to say yes. However, marriage is the exact opposite of what she has planned for her life. Chrisette has a desire to live her dreams and chase her passion, leaving no room for a husband or children. Unable to break the news to McMillan and terrified of disappointing her family, Chrisette accepts a job offer that takes her miles away and leads her straight to Devon.
Devon is charming, free-spirited and everything Chrisette has been taught to avoid. When the two of them forge a business relationship, Devon teaches Chrisette how to truly let her hair down and awakens a thirst inside of her that has to be quenched. As their relationship slowly evolves, Chrisette lets go of all of her inhibitions, experiencing a freedom that she never knew existed.
When pages from the book of Devon’s troubled past surface, combined with Chrisette’s family’s interference and an ex who refuses to let go, will the two of them be able to maintain what they’ve discovered in each other, or will their passion and love fizzle under the pressure?
9/29 After You by Jojo Moyes
When one story ends, another begins. After You is the “Charming sequel to Me Before You” (People Magazine).
How do you move on after losing the person you loved? How do you build a life worth living?
Louisa Clark is no longer just an ordinary girl living an ordinary life. After the transformative six months spent with Will Traynor, she is struggling without him. When an extraordinary accident forces Lou to return home to her family, she can’t help but feel she’s right back where she started.
Her body heals, but Lou herself knows that she needs to be kick-started back to life. Which is how she ends up in a church basement with the members of the Moving On support group, who share insights, laughter, frustrations, and terrible cookies. They will also lead her to the strong, capable Sam Fielding—the paramedic, whose business is life and death, and the one man who might be able to understand her. Then a figure from Will’s past appears and hijacks all her plans, propelling her into a very different future. . . .
For Lou Clark, life after Will Traynor means learning to fall in love again, with all the risks that bring. But here Jojo Moyes gives us two families, as real as our own, whose joys and sorrows will touch you deeply, and where both changes and surprises await.
After You is quintessential Jojo Moyes—a novel that will make you laugh, cry and rejoice at being back in the world she creates. Here she does what few novelists can do—revisits beloved characters and takes them to places neither they nor we ever expected.
