Détails: Île de Ré, janvier 1664. Rien ne va plus pour André Mignier, qui a été forcé à s’engager dans l’armée pour sauver l’honneur de sa famille. De plus, il doit laisser derrière lui Marie Jacques, sa flamme; la mère de cette dernière a refusé qu’il l’épouse, lui préférant un autre prétendant. C’est donc l’âme en peine qu’André quitte les siens. À bord du Brézé, il vogue en direction des Antilles d’abord, sans savoir que son périple le mènera jusqu’en Nouvelle-France. En compagnie de nouveaux camarades, il découvre les rigueurs du voyage, mais aussi le charme de nouvelles contrées. Ne sachant pas que Marie Jacques est devenue veuve, André choisit de s’installer en Nouvelle-France, défrichant sa terre avec ardeur. Pendant ce temps, de l’autre côté de l’Atlantique, la mystérieuse Nouchka, la guérisseuse du village, convainc Marie Jacques de partir à la recherche de celui qu’elle aime; elle devient Fille du Roy. Le retrouvera-t-elle ? André, quant à lui, aura-t-il refait sa vie?

Détails: Que diriez-vous, lecteurs, si vos personnages préférés débarquaient dans votre salon ? Fantasme ou cauchemar, en vérité ? C’est ce qui arrive à Vincent Ravalec, un beau matin, alors qu’il sort de la douche : deux hommes un peu étranges frappent à sa porte et lui tendent ce qu’il appellent un « hologrammisateur » : un appareil grâce auquel ses héros vont pouvoir sortir de leurs pages et « vivre en vrai ». Mais les camés, les fêtards et les magiciens de son œuvre prennent goût au réel et s’amusent à hanter le Grand Roman Collectif : les datchas russes de Guerre et Paix se mettent au téléphone portable et font la Révolution, Mary Shelley tremble pour son Frankenstein... Entre L’Apprenti Sorcier et Lettres à un jeune poète, Vincent Ravalec signe un livre à la fois hilarant et sérieux sur le pourquoi de l’écriture et revisite, à sa façon, de grands textes qui ont compté pour lui. Vincent Ravalec est écrivain et cinéaste. Héros, personnages et magiciens est son trente-deuxième livre de fiction.

Détails: The first fire may have been an accident, but what about the second? And the third—the one that killed someone. Becca King and her friends wonder if one of the newcomers to the island is to blame. Perhaps it’s Isis Martin’s brother, Aidan, just home from a school for troubled teens. Or Parker Natalia, a talented musician fired by his bandmates for unknown reasons. Meanwhile, Becca’s education in the paranormal continues, as fellow psychic Diana Kinsale encourages her to explore her growing extrasensory abilities. Beautiful Whidbey Island may seem like a tranquil haven, but all is not as it seems. The third book in the Whidbey Island saga confirms Elizabeth George’s place as a top-notch writer of suspense novels.

Détails: « Carmen, Pilar, Mercedes pourraient être n’importe quelle femme espagnole des trente premières années du siècle passé. Cependant, le destin a voulu qu’elles soient les compagnes de trois hommes qui ont marqué le devenir de l’histoire récente de l’Espagne. Elles ont été les témoins muets de faits historiques qui ont changé l’Espagne joyeuse de la Seconde République en la triste Espagne de la Guerre Civile et de la dictature. Grâce à leurs regards, et sûrement aussi à leur intelligence, leur envie ou leur ambition, elles ont, au second plan, collaboré à concevoir des événements qui ont précipité l’Espagne dans une guerre civile. » Carmen Domingo Nous sommes en Espagne à la veille de la guerre civile. Les phalangistes luttent contre les « rouges » et essaient d’imposer leur vision d’une Espagne traditionnelle, catholique et hiérarchique, dans laquelle les femmes occupent un rang inférieur. C’est dans ce contexte que l’on retrouve Carmen Polo, Pilar Primo de Rivera et Mercedes Sanz Bachiller, épouses des trois plus influents hommes de l’époque et qui ont marqué l’Histoire : José Antonio Primo de Rivera, Onésimo Redondo et bien sûr, Francisco Franco. En alternant leurs pensées, Carmen Domingo nous offre un roman choral d’une grande véracité. D’une écriture précise et magistrale, elle nous replonge dans une époque capitale de l’Espagne. En évoquant le quotidien de femmes qui ont en réalité fait basculer l’Histoire, elle nous offre un point de vue d’une grande originalité en donnant une voix à celles que l’on a longtemps fait taire.

In Mastering the Process, George offers readers a master class in the art and science of crafting a novel. This is a subject she knows well, having taught creative writing both nationally and internationally for over thirty years. "I have never before read a book about writing that is so thorough, thoughtful, and most of all, helpful." --Lisa See, New York Times bestselling author of The Island of Sea Women For many writers, the biggest challenge is figuring out how to take that earliest glimmer of inspiration and shape it into a full-length novel. How do you even begin to transform a single idea into a complete book? In these pages, award-winning, number one New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth George takes us behind the scenes through each step of her writing process, revealing exactly what it takes to craft a novel. Drawing from her personal photos, early notes, character analyses, and rough drafts, George shows us every stage of how she wrote her novel Careless in Red, from researching location to imagining plot to creating characters to the actual writing and revision processes themselves. George offers us an intimate look at the procedures she follows, while also providing invaluable advice for writers about what has worked for her--and what hasn't. Mastering the Process gives writers practical, prescriptive, and achievable tools for creating a novel, editing a novel, and problem solving when in the midst of a novel, from a master storyteller writing at the top of her game.

Détails: A high-powered Manhattan attorney finds love, purpose, and the promise of a simpler life in her grandmother's hometown. Ellen Branford is going to fulfill her grandmother's dying wish -- to find the hometown boy she once loved, and give him her last letter. Ellen leaves Manhattan and her Kennedy-esque fiance for Beacon, Maine. What should be a one-day trip is quickly complicated when she almost drowns in the chilly bay and is saved by a local carpenter. The rescue turns Ellen into something of a local celebrity, which may or may not help her unravel the past her grandmother labored to keep hidden. As she learns about her grandmother and herself, it becomes clear that a 24-hour visit to Beacon may never be enough. The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop & Café is a warm and delicious debut about the power of a simpler life. "You will devour The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop & Café. Mary Simses can write evocative detail that puts you right in the scene, with dialogue that always rings true." -- James Patterson

Détails: NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers and Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley are forced to confront the past as they try to solve a crime that threatens to tear apart the very fabric of a quiet, historic medieval town in England The cozy, bucolic town of Ludlow is stunned when one of its most revered and respected citizens--Ian Druitt, the local deacon--is accused of a serious crime. Then, while in police custody, Ian is found dead. Did he kill himself? Or was he murdered? When Barbara Havers is sent to Ludlow to investigate the chain of events that led to Ian's death, all the evidence points to suicide. But Barbara can't shake the feeling that she's missing something. She decides to take a closer look at the seemingly ordinary inhabitants of Ludlow--mainly elderly retirees and college students--and discovers that almost everyone in town has something to hide. A masterful work of suspense, The Punishment She Deserves sets Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers and Inspector Thomas Lynley against one of their most intricate cases. Fans of the longtime series will love the many characters from Elizabeth George's previous novels who join Lynley and Havers, and readers new to the series will quickly see why she is one of the most popular and critically acclaimed writers of our time. Both a page-turner and a deeply complex story about the lies we tell, the lies we believe, and the redemption we need, this novel will be remembered as one of George's best.

Détails: The sport she loves is out of reach. The boy she loves wants someone else. What now? She expected to start Harkness College as a varsity ice hockey player. But a serious accident means that Corey Callahan will start school in a wheelchair instead. Across the hall, in the other handicapped-accessible dorm room, lives the too-delicious-to-be real Adam Hartley, another would-be hockey star with his leg broken in two places. He’s way out of Corey’s league. Also, he’s taken. Nevertheless, an unlikely alliance blooms between Corey and Hartley in the “gimp ghetto” of McHerrin Hall. Over tequila, perilously balanced dining hall trays, and video games, the two cope with disappointments that nobody else understands. They’re just friends, of course, until one night when things fall apart. Or fall together. All Corey knows is that she’s falling. Hard. But will Hartley set aside his trophy girl to love someone as broken as Corey? If he won’t, she will need to find the courage to make a life for herself at Harkness — one which does not revolve around the sport she can no longer play, or the brown-eyed boy who’s afraid to love her back. .

Détails: "When a story captures the imagination of millions, that's magic. Can you qualify magic? Archer and Jockers just may have done so."—Sylvia Day, New York Times bestselling author Ask most people about massive success in the world of fiction, and you’ll typically hear that it’s a game of hazy crystal balls. The sales figures of E. L. James or Dan Brown seem to be freakish—random occurrences in an unknowable market. But what if there were an algorithm that could reveal a secret DNA of bestsellers, regardless of their genre? What if it knew, just from analyzing the words alone, not just why genre writers like John Grisham and Danielle Steel belong on the lists, but also that authors such as Junot Diaz, Jodi Picoult, and Donna Tartt had telltale signs of success all over their pages? Thanks to Jodie Archer and Matthew Jockers, the algorithm exists, the code has been cracked, and the results bring fresh new insights into how fiction works and why we read. The Bestseller Code offers a new theory for why Fifty Shades of Grey sold so well. It sheds light on the current craze for dark heroines. It reveals which themes tend to sell best. And all with fascinating supporting data taken from a five-year study of twenty thousand novels. Then there is the hunt for "the one"—the paradigmatic example of bestselling writing according to a computer's analysis of thousands of points of data. The result is surprising, a bit ironic, and delightfully unorthodox. This book explains groundbreaking text-mining research in accessible terms and offers a new perspective on the New York Times bestseller list. It's a big-idea book about the relationship between creativity and technology that will be provocative to anyone interested in how analytics have already transformed the worlds of finance, medicine, and sports. But at heart it is a celebration of books for readers and writers—a compelling investigation into how successful writing works, and a fresh take on our intellectual and emotional response to stories.

The Wallflowers: four young ladies at the side of the ballroom make a pact to help each other find husbands . . . no matter what it takes. Proud and beautiful Annabelle Peyton could have her pick of suitors—if only she had a dowry. Her family is on the brink of disaster, and the only way Annabelle can save them is to marry a wealthy man. Unfortunately her most persistent admirer is the brash Simon Hunt, a handsome and ambitious entrepreneur who wants her as his mistress. Annabelle is determined to resist Simon's wicked propositions, but she can't deny her attraction to the boldly seductive rogue, any more than he can resist the challenge she presents. As they try to outmaneuver each other, they find themselves surrendering to a love more powerful than they could have ever imagined. But fate may have other plans—and it will take all of Annabelle's courage to face a peril that could destroy everything she holds dear.

Détails: The first in the Haunted Library Horror Classics series presented by the Horror Writers Association. An unabridged edition of the novel that inspired the famous Andrew Lloyd Weber musical. Deep beneath the Paris Opera House, a masked man lives in silence... Every night at the Palais Garnier, hundreds of guests sit on the edge of velvet-covered seats, waiting for prima donna La Carlotta to take the stage. But when her voice fails her, La Carlotta is replaced with unknown understudy Christine Daaé, a young soprano whose vibrant singing fills every corner of the house and wins her a slew of admirers, including an old childhood friend who soon professes his love for her. But unknown to Christine is another man, who lurks out of sight behind the heavy curtains of the opera, who can move about the building undetected, who will do anything to make sure Christine will keep singing just for him... This curated edition of The Phantom of the Opera, based on the original 1911 English translation by Alexander Teixeira de Mattos, brings an iconic story of love and obsession to today's readers and illuminates the timeless appeal of Leroux's masterpiece.

Détails: To this day, the low, thin wail of an infant can be heard in Keldale's lush green valleys. Three hundred years ago, as legend goes, the frightened Yorkshire villagers smothered a crying babe in Keldale Abbey, where they'd hidden to escape the ravages of Cromwell's raiders. Now into Keldale's pastoral web of old houses and older secrets comes Scotland Yard Inspector Thomas Lynley, the eighth earl of Asherton. Along with the redoubtable Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers, Lynley has been sent to solve a savage murder that has stunned the peaceful countryside. For fat, unlovely Roberta Teys has been found in her best dress, an axe in her lap, seated in the old stone barn beside her father's headless corpse. Her first and last words were "I did it. And I'm not sorry." Yet as Lynley and Havers wind their way through Keldale's dark labyrinth of secret scandals and appalling crimes, they uncover a shattering series of revelations that will reverberate through this tranquil English valley—and in their own lives as well.
