Happy almost October! I can’t believe September is almost over already! I feel like I say that every month. But for those of you have been reading my blog lately, you know that I am getting married at the beginning of November, so I am VERY happy every time a month passes and I get closer and closer to that wonderful day. While we wait, there’s some fantastic novels coming out over the month of October, so you should check them out!
The Painted Castle by Kristy Cambron
The Painted Castle is the third book in Kristy’s Lost Castle series, coming after The Lost Castle and Castle on the Rise.
A lost painting of Queen Victoria…
A centuries-old English estate with a library bricked off from the world…
And three women, separated by time, whose lives are irrevocably changed.
When art historian Keira Foley is hired to authenticate a painting at a centuries-old East Suffolk manor, she hopes this is just the thing to get her career and life back on track. But from the time she arrives at Parham Hill Estate and begins working alongside rumored art thief Emory Scott, she’s left with far more questions than answers. Could this lost painting of Queen Victoria be a duplicate of the original Winterhalter masterpiece, and if so, who is the artist?
As Keira begins to unravel the mystery behind the portrait of the queen, two woman emerge from the estate’s forgotten past. In Victorian England, talented sketch artist Elizabeth Meade is engaged to Viscount Huxley, then owner of Parham Hill. While there, master portrait artist Franz Winterhalter takes her under his wing, but Elizabeth’s real motive for being at Parham Hill has nothing to do with art. She’s determined to avenge her father’s brutal murder—even if it means feigning an engagement to the very man she believes committed the crime.
A century later, Amelia Woods—a WWII widow who has turned Parham Hill Estate and its beloved library into a boarding school for refugee children—receives military orders to house a troop of American pilots. She is determined that the children in her care remain untouched by the war, but it’s proving difficult with officers taking up every square inch of their world…and one in particular vying for a space in her long shut up heart.
