In Thayer’s charming holiday novel, Christmas is drawing near and Felicia returns to her family home on Nantucket Island to marry her fiance, Archie. All of the details of her lavish nuptials are coming together—except it’s the dream wedding that her mother, Jilly, really wants. Jilly is also worried that Archie might not be the perfect match for her daughter, so she secretly tries to set Felicia up with her handsome neighbor, Steven Hardy. As the big day approaches and the family is headed toward a Yuletide wedding disaster, an unexpected twist reminds everyone about the true meaning of the season.
Havana Storm: A Dirk Pitt Novel
After 40 years of nautical derring-do, underwater expert Dirk Pitt is still going strong, as seen in Cussler’s 23rd novel, the sixth co-authored with son Dirk (after Poseidon’s Arrow, 2012). In 1898, Ellsworth Boyd, a Yale anthropologist who specialized in native Caribbean cultures, arrived in Cuba with something in a crate that he excavated in Jamaica. Unfortunately, Boyd boarded the USS Maine with his prize shortly before the warship exploded and sunk in Havana Harbor. Over a century later, Pitt seeks to retrieve Boyd’s mysterious discovery.

Inspired by her own family’s history, Steel pens a rich, historical novel set on the cusp of World War II. Widowers Nicolas von Bingen and Alex von Hemmerle have been best friends since childhood. But when Nicholas learns that his mother whom he never knew was of Jewish descent, he is forced to flee Nazi Germany for a new life in America with his sons. Their survival depends on a gift from Alex: eight purebred horses, including two white Lipizzaner horses that can perform on command. Nicholas joins the Ringling Brothers Circus and becomes Nick Bing, with Alex’s white stallion, Pegasus, as the star of the show.
