        The Christmas Violin

        The Christmas Violin by Buffy Andrews | 9781472054838 | NOOK Book (eBook) | Barnes & Noble

        Can there ever be an encore to true love?

         

        It used to be that the only woman he could think about was Camilla. When he closed his eyes it was her that he saw. But now, he saw Willow. And it scared him and made him feel guilty. And yet he couldn’t help himself, couldn’t help feeling what he was feeling…

         

        The last thing grief-stricken widower Peter St John expects to find at the cemetery is love. But one evening, as he lays flowers on Camilla’s grave, he is drawn to the haunting melody of a solitary violin player. And so he encounters beautiful concert violinist Willow Channing, who has her own grief to contend with.

         

        A second, chance meeting fuels the fire. And soon Peter knows that as one song ended, another might begin.

        Praise for Buffy Andrews

                Hurt feelings, unmet expectations, dashed hopes, misplaced trust - these are just some of the potential time bombs that explode in dating relationships leaving a trail of broken hearts.

With pastoral wisdom and insight, Milian educates readers about defining expectations before they start dating, and he outlines a specific five-step dating plan that will help limit relational damage as they look for someone to share their lives with. The author encourages, challenges, and instructs believers in this comprehensive how-to-date handbook. He gives practical advice on wisely forming relationships with the opposite sex while still having fun, avoiding unnecessary hurts, making lifelong friends, and knowing "where they are" each step of the way.

                 

                Filled with personal reflections and insights, singles will take a look back at their past relational mishaps and move forward into a biblically healthy and romantically fulfilling relationship as God intended it to be. This book remedies and reduces the casualties of the current dating minefield where hearts get broken daily and sometimes never recover.

                  The Wicked Marquis

                  9781497690998_p0_v1_s260x420.JPG

                  Overview

                    A breathtaking tale of intrigue, romance, and revenge from one of the twentieth century’s most prolific and popular authors of suspense

                   

                  From the top floor of his house, the marquis of Mandeleys can look for miles and see nothing he does not own—save one little cottage, just a hundred yards from his front door. It is the property of Richard Vont, whose family has been tenants at Mandeleys for generations, and who refuses to go away without a fight.

                   

                  Eighteen years ago, the marquis took an interest in Vont’s only daughter, bringing her under his wing and spiriting her across England and beyond. With his encouragement, Marcia has become a famous novelist, but her father was left alone and bitter. Now he has come up with a plan to avenge his loss and destroy the marquis once and for all.

                   

                  As the plot unfolds, the righteousness of Vont’s anger is called into question, as is the loyalty of his American mercenary. But no matter how innocent the “wicked” marquis may turn out to be, it could already be too late to save his life.

                    What if freedom could become a lifestyle?
                    What if the secret to accessing this lifestyle was a Person?

                    In Live Free, Dennis and Dr. Jen Clark offer a user-friendly guide to unlocking your lifestyle of freedom through intimacy with God.

                      Raffles: The Amateur Cracksman

                      by E. W. Hornung, Otto Penzler (Introduction)

                      9781453266397_p0_v1_s260x420.JPG

                        The cracking debut of A. J. Raffles, proper English gentleman and jewel thief extraordinaire

                       

                      Sometimes the greatest of partnerships are born in the direst of moments. For Bunny Manders and A. J. Raffles, such a moment comes when a bad night at the baccarat tables threatens to end in suicide. Hundreds of pounds in the red, Bunny grows so desperate that he asks Raffles, a former classmate who captained their public school’s cricket team, for help. When Raffles hesitates, Bunny pulls a gun out of his coat pocket and puts it to his head. “I never dreamt you had such stuff in you, Bunny!” says Raffles, a gleam in his eye. A few hours later, he and his old school chum break into a jeweler’s shop and steal thousands of pounds’ worth of diamonds and gemstones. Disaster averted, adventures begun.

                       

                      In these thrilling stories, E. W. Hornung introduced the world to a duo as gifted at burglary as Sherlock Holmes and Watson are at detection. Full of sophisticated banter, hair-raising close calls, and nefarious schemes, Raffles: The Amateur Cracksman is a masterwork of crime fiction and irrefutable proof that there truly is honor among thieves.

                            9781466218956_p0_v4_s114x166.JPG

                            Overview

                            HOLLYWOOD...as seen through the eyes of its most infamous garden.

                            When Marcus Adler's father runs him out of Pennsylvania, he can think of only one place to go: 8152 Sunset Boulevard, the home of luminous silent screen star Alla Nazimova, who visited him on his sickbed when he was a child. But when Marcus gets to Hollywood, Madame Nazimova's home has been converted to a hotel. Marcus checks into The Garden of Allah and starts his new life. He soon finds friends in Kathryn Massey, who ran away from her overbearing stage mother to become a journalist, and Gwendolyn Brick, a hopeful actress from the Other Hollywood-Hollywood, Florida-who wants to try her luck in Glitter City. The three naïve hopefuls band together to tread water against a tidal wave of threadbare casting couches, nervous bootleggers, human billboards, round-the-world zeppelins, sinking gambling boats, waiters in blackface, William Randolph Hearst, the Long Beach earthquake, starlets, harlots, Harlows and Garbos. But how will they get their feet inside Hollywood's golden door?

                            THE GARDEN ON SUNSET is the first in a series of novels following Marcus, Kathryn and Gwendolyn as they leap and lurch, win and lose their way through Hollywood's golden years. If you love Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City books, you'll want to get lost in The Garden of Allah.
