Four Novels of The Great War Era
The Dew has 4 novels coming up for review between December and January - all center around the Great War itself, or at least the time period.
I will have them as separate reviews, but if you're interested in that time period know that there's a quite a few books available for you shortly.
Undressing Mr. Darcy is the most current of the books, based in this time period but constantly referencing the "Mr. Darcy Era", so while not technically of that time period, it's close enough to join the gang. It's also the most fun to read - being a Rom Com of books.
Stella Bain was my favorite. Sparse writing that gets to the meat of the matter without a lot of fluff. It has a deep mystery involving Stella's past that she herself has to rediscover. You stay intrigued, anticipating her next actions.
Somewhere in France has the most romantic plot line - straight out of Harlequin, but with a sturdier heroine. I enjoyed the escapism of it.
The memory of Lost Senses is the largest book - a nice sized tome filled with mysterious people and mysterious pasts. You can really sink into this one and stay to visit a while.
Finally on December 15th I will be re-posting "While We Were Watching Downton Abbey" by Wendy Wax as it releases it's Mass Market Edition. Current time period, embracing some of the styles of the past time, while watching the show!
This appears to be a very popular time period in novels these days so I hope you enjoy the books as they become available to you!
Amy grew up a loner due to having weird parents and smelling like cat pee all the time. But when she hit puberty she developed super powers along with boobs. Soon she became a vigilante/Robin Hood type of superhero......but as with all stories involving women and their work habits, she lost out on promotions because she always seemed to leave early for work - not for kids, but for crime. While Clark Kent got away with it, apparently Amy cannot.
A fun filled graphic novel (a-hum...comic book for adults) that shows a woman's struggle with friends, family, love, work.................and electric bolts that shoot out of her hands.

For Amy Sturgess, life in the big city comes with even bigger problems. Her marketing career is being derailed by a conniving coworker stealing her accounts. Her family crises range from her down-and-out brother running afoul of the law to her mother’s growing affections for the house cats. And Amy’s love life just flatlined thanks to an unexpected reunion with the one that got away—who’s now engaged.
When Xanax and therapy fail to relieve her stress, Amy does what any young woman in her position would do: She uses her superstrength, speed, flight, and ability to generate 750 volts from her hands to fight crime as the mysterious masked vigilante Starling. But while Starling is hailed as a superhero, will Amy remain a super-zero?
