Boston Jane The Claim Book Excerpt:

Fans of Boston Jane: An Adventure and Boston Jane: Wilderness Days will revel in the rip-roaring adventure, romance, and humor of this spectacularly spirited and satisfying conclusion to New York Times bestselling and three-time Newbery Honor–winning author Jennifer L. Holm's acclaimed historical fiction trilogy. Seventeen-year-old Jane Peck is the darling of Washington Territory—more at home in a primitive pioneer settlement in the rugged Northwest than she ever was in the refined world of Philadelphia society. She's outwitted wild animals, vengeful ghosts, and a disloyal fiance, but when her finishing school nemesis Sally Biddle invades Shoalwater Bay, Jane discovers that the most dangerous thing on the frontier might just be an impeccably dressed debutant. As the Biddles charm their way into her close-knit community, Jane finds everything she holds dear threatened—including her true love! Will Jane's claim on happiness slip away?

Unwarranted Abduction Book Excerpt:

When Diane Montgomery, the First Lady of the State of Maryland, is kidnapped in front of her two young daughters, all other cases are put on hold, pulling the local police department, the FBI, and Homeland Security together as a cohesive team. It’s a priority to find Diane and bring her home to her family. To make matters worse, people all around who are involved in the case are being found murdered as a warning to the investigators: the abductors mean business, and they will destroy anyone who crosses them. Meanwhile, Diane’s sister, Anna Lentz, senses that Diane is still alive and will do anything to find her. Anna battles the furies of Mother Nature as Hurricane Kelsie bears down on the East Coast—and Maryland goes into lockdown and issues a state of emergency. It seems, however, that the answer to the mystery behind Diane’s abduction may be closer than anyone can imagine. Gov. Kenneth Montgomery understands that pardoning someone from death row is nearly impossible, and he is torn between being a husband and a government official. Family comes first, but the state’s citizens count on him to provide safety and security. Has the State of Maryland put their trust in the wrong man?

Ken Williams Book Excerpt:

Perhaps familiar today as an answer to sports trivia questions, Ken Williams (1890-1959) was once a celebrity who helped bring about a new kind of power baseball in the 1920s. One of the great sluggers of his era (and of all time), he beat Babe Ruth for the home run title in 1922, and became the first to hit 30 home runs and steal 30 bases in a season that year. Later recognized for his accomplishments, he was considered for but not inducted into the Hall of Fame. This first-ever biography of Williams covers his life and career, from his small town upbringing, to his unlikely foray into pro baseball, to his retirement years, when he served as a police officer and ran a pool hall in his hometown.

Big Papi Book Excerpt:

Raised in the Dominican Republic, signed by the Seattle Mariners, and released by the Minnesota Twins, David Ortiz landed in baseball-crazy Boston, of all places. Generally regarded as an underachiever to that point in his career, Ortiz blossomed into one of the most feared and adored sluggers in baseball while altering the course of the game's history, helping Boston win its first World Series in eighty-six years and thereby breaking the infamous "Curse of the Bambino." Along the way, Ortiz established his place as a truly Ruthian figure in the annals of our national pastime: an imposing figure in the batter's box, yet an endearing man to the young, particularly in his native Dominican Republic, where he has focused his charitable efforts on improving the health of children. The son of two caring parents, and a loving father of three, Ortiz is a hero to many. Now, in his memoir, the man affectionately known as "Big Papi" recounts his life from growing up in an impoverished area of the Dominican Republic (where baseball is king) to his ascension in Boston (where he became one). Ortiz discusses, in detail, his historic and record-setting performances as a member of the Red Sox, his exploding popularity, the challenges of playing in Boston, and life in the Red Sox clubhouse. BIG PAPI is a unique memoir by a charismatic man who appeals to young and old, on the baseball field or off.

You Spin Me Book Excerpt:

★★★★★ “A well-crafted story, a story full of heart and soul as two people show themselves to be perfectly imperfect.” Words of Wisdom from the Scarf Princess Some scars go further than skin deep… 1988 doesn’t end well for Jessica Abraham. In just one week she turns thirty, loses her day job, and loses the role of Ophelia to a younger actress. Rallying, she goes after a part at a theater outside of the city, but the director’s plan to hide her beauty behind hair, makeup and wardrobe from Cosmo’s “Don't'' column shakes her confidence to the core. For the first time in her acting career, she won’t be able to rely on her carefully managed physical charms. Only her craft will count. On a snowy night early in January 1989, a woman calls into DJ Callihan Alonso’s alt-rock radio show at the end of her commute. He asks her to call back the next night, and the next, just so he'll know she’s home safe. There's something about her voice that has him wanting more, but the longer they talk, the closer she gets. Compromising each and every wall he's built around his heart. If two lonely people fall in love over late-night phone calls, will meeting face-to-face make them, or break them? In this heartfelt, slow burn retro romcom, it may be the end of a decade, but it’s the beginning of a love story. This book may contain descriptions of events that might be upsetting or triggering for some readers. For more information, please see the Content Guidance page on my website: bit.ly/ContentGuidanceKarenGrey ★★★★★ “I'm always happy to read Karen's books that transport me back to the 80s and 90s. I love her snippets of music, TV, current events of that time period sprinkled throughout the book for that hit of nostalgia.” Pixiedustreads ★★★★★ “Jess and Cal's story is an indelible ink that seeped into my subconsciousness. I felt every cheer in their triumphs and shed every tear in their disappointments.” Currant 7 Recommends ★★★★★ “This author is truly a master at creating likeable, three-dimensional characters.” Laurie Reads Romance ★★★★★ “Grey's characters, Jess and Cal, enamored themselves to me and made this one of my favorite books this year.” Once Upon a Page ★★★★★ “Like the first two books in the Boston Classics series, this book takes you on a journey. There’s great music (that I’m now listening to), a host of interesting characters, a world that some of us lived in and storytelling that is absolutely wonderful.” Anna Reads Here ★★★★★ “A story like a kaleidoscope of fireworks accompanied by a background of music, reflecting the characters’ feelings throughout their journey.” Ally & the Books ★★★★★ “I just sat and felt this one long after I finished. Not many books move me that way.” Goodreads review ★★★★★ “I am loving this series, each book is entertaining and contains plenty of laugh out loud moments and heartfelt ones.” Bookbub review ★★★★★ “Karen Grey has a lovely, deft touch with her characters, the plot, and with the world she's created.” Bookbub review ★★★★★ “Add this to your must read list.” Bookbub review ★★★★★ “No one has to be perfect. Being enough for each other comes pretty close, though.” Goodreads review ★★★★★ “I was hooked from page one.” Goodreads review ★★★★★ “Fresh, bright, original, laugh-out-loud funny yet serious and thought-provoking.” Goodreads review ★★★★★ “This book doesn’t gloss over difficult subjects, but there’s also a lot of humor, and the love story itself is great. It’s a slow burn, sure, but there’s a real and deep connection between Jess and Cal right at the beginning. Absolutely beautiful.” Goodreads review ★★★★★ “I love when a story takes me by surprise, and this one definitely did—relatable characters with real issues. Their imperfections and ability to see one another's true hearts was beautiful to watch unfold- overall feel-good.” Bookbub review ★★★★★ “The 80s nostalgia is everywhere in this story. From the records Cal spins as a DJ, to the mention of Tower records, and the struggles of talking on the phone with a stretched phone cord, this book transports you back to that era.” Goodreads review ★★★★★ “What an amazing and refreshing story! Cal and Jess are wonderful characters. Their slow burn romance is beautifully written, sweet, emotional, and funny.” Goodreads review ★★★★★ “This retro slow-burn romcom captured my heart and never let go.” Goodreads review ★★★★★ “I loved how everything played out in this book, the story is beautifully plotted with the perfect balance of drama, humor, heartfelt emotions and romance, a wonderful, slow burn romance.” Goodreads review ★★★★★ “The 1988 setting is a gem to the people who lived through those years and to the younger generation to get a taste of what they were like. Every chapter starts with little soundbites that introduce the shows or the ads in radio stations and its spot on!” Goodreads review ★★★★★ “a beautiful, emotional story about two damaged souls making a connection over late night phone calls.” Goodreads review ★★★★★ “If you're looking for a fun, 80's story with both Sleeping Beauty and Beauty & the Beast vibes, this is the book for you!” Goodreads review ★★★★★ “I love when a story takes me by surprise, and this one definitely did—relatable characters with real issues. Their imperfections and ability to see one another's true hearts was beautiful to watch unfold.” Goodreads review ★★★★★ “A captivating story that has a realness to it that is both breathtaking and devastating. You could feel both characters’ emotional pain and their struggle to find happiness with their outward appearances. The character development throughout this series has been phenomenal and the stories are so much deeper than expected.” Bookbub review
