New to Dot Scribbles Shelves

I have been a very lucky lady this week as three lovely books have been delivered by the postman. First of all, I have had two for review:

A Winter's Wedding by Sharon Owen (Penguin 11th November) Emily loves Dylan. And Dylan loves Emily. Their relationship is rock solid. Everyone says they are meant to be together, it's just a matter of when- not if- Dylan is going to pop the Big Question.
There's just one tiny fly in the ointment: Emily hates weddings. Which is fair enough seeing as she was jilted at the altar years ago by Alex, her supposed soul mate. Still, Dylan isn't Alex. He's gorgeous and sexy and scruffy and kind- and more than worth taking a chance on...
But what happens when the ghost of Emily's Christmas past threatens to ruin everything? Can Dylan convince the love of his life he's different and that their wedding day will be remembered for the right reasons?
After all, with a sprinkling of snow and a touch of magic in the air, there's nothing quite like a Winter's wedding to warm the soul...

Black Swan Rising by Lee Carroll (Transworld 25th November) Jeweller Garet James isn't the same as everyone else. She just doesn't know it yet. With her fair share of problems- money (lack of), an elderly father, a struggling business- Garet should be just like any other young, feisty, single New Yorker. If only it was that simple...
It  begins with the old silver box that had been soldered shut. All Garet had to do is open it. A favour for the frail owner of the antiques shop. Who wouldn't help?
Only it's then that things start to change. Garet doesn't notice at first, the shift's barely perceptible. But the city in which she grew up is beginning to reveal a long-hidden side- darker, and altogether more dangerous; a parallel world of chaos, smoke and blood.
Now it's out of the box... and it has no intention of going back in.

I also bought one book this week:


Sister by Rosamund Lupton (Piatkus) Nothing can break the bond between sisters...
When Beatrice gets a frantic call in the middle of Sunday lunch to say that her younger sister Tess is missing, she boards the first flight home to London. But as she learns about the circumstances surrounding Tess's disappearance, she is stunned to discover how little she actually knows of her sister's life- and unprepared for the terrifying truths she now must face.
The police, Beatrice's fiance and even their mother accept that they have lost Tess, but Beatrice refuses to give up on her. So she embarks on a dangerous journey to discover the truth, no matter the cost.

Ooh, I like Sharon Owens, and I'm on a bit of a wedding themed books trail at the moment - I can't resist anything with wedding in the title.

Great new books! Black Swan Rising is very intriguing and the cover is darkly beautiful.

I will be interested to hear what you think about Sharon Owens new book - I think she has got better lately after some rather average books.

I have got Sister to read as well, think I might start that soon.

Chloe- It's really pretty isn't it and I really enjoyed her last one.

Verity- I was exactly the same when I was getting married!

Irena- The cover is really lovely on Black Swan Rising, sounds like it's going to be a good one!

Josbookjourney- I kept on looking at Sister and in the end gave in, haven't read a good thriller for ages!

I got Black Swan Rising too and I love the cover. I've got the Sharon Owens one on pre-order - it sounds like a lovely story to snuggle up with on a cold night :)
