Weekend Wishlist (3)

Weekend Wishlist is a weekly meme hosted by GeekGirl over at Geek Girl's Book Blog.

Do you have a list of books building up in your head (or on your bookshelf), that have been out for awhile, but you've never read, but you keep hoping you will?

This is a way for bloggers to share their to-be-read piles with each other, and to remind themselves that, though we all adore the new releases, there are many back-list titles that deserve our love too.


Life just got a whole lot more complicated--thanks to a "secret" ingredient.

The women of the Potluck Club have made a bold move. They've launched a catering business that's a lot like them: saucy, spicy, and well-seasoned. But will a pantry full of personal secrets cause the business to crumble before it gets off the ground?

As the women focus on their new venture they are forced to deal with a steamy past that threatens a marriage, the scalding truth about those they thought they knew, and the outrageous situations that come out of an unexpected--and revealing--trip back home.

The ladies of Summit View, Colorado, haven't left the kitchen--they've merely turned up the heat on their most delectable adventure to date.

Linda Evans Shepherd and Eva Marie Everson are the authors of the popular Potluck Club novels, including The Potluck Club, The Potluck Club--Trouble's Brewing, and The Potluck Club--Takes the Cake.



A foundling, an old book of dark fairy tales, a secret garden, an aristocratic family, a love denied, and a mystery. The Forgotten Garden is a captivating, atmospheric and compulsively readable story of the past, secrets, family and memory from the international best-selling author Kate Morton.

Cassandra is lost, alone and grieving. Her much loved grandmother, Nell, has just died and Cassandra, her life already shaken by a tragic accident ten years ago, feels like she has lost everything dear to her. But an unexpected and mysterious bequest from Nell turns Cassandra's life upside down and ends up challenging everything she thought she knew about herself and her family.

Inheriting a book of dark and intriguing fairytales written by Eliza Makepeace - the Victorian authoress who disappeared mysteriously in the early twentieth century - Cassandra takes her courage in both hands to follow in the footsteps of Nell on a quest to find out the truth about their history, their family and their past; little knowing that in the process, she will also discover a new life for herself.


Both have been on my TBR pile for a while.. both look amazing!  I will read them soon.
