Yes! It’s finally fall, the best time of the year, and my favourite time for new books. Here’s what I’ll be reading this month whilst consuming cups of tea.

The Boy is Back by Meg Cabot: Reed Stewart thought he’d left all his small town troubles—including a broken heart—behind when he ditched tiny Bloomville, Indiana, ten years ago to become rich and famous on the professional golf circuit. Then one tiny post on the Internet causes all of those troubles to return . . . with a vengeance. Becky Flowers has worked hard to build her successful senior relocation business, but she’s worked even harder to forget Reed Stewart ever existed. She has absolutely no intention of seeing him when he returns—until his family hires her to save his parents.
Now Reed and Becky can’t avoid one another—or the memories of that one fateful night. And soon everything they thought they knew about themselves (and each other) has been turned upside down, and they—and the entire town of Bloomville—might never be the same, all because The Boy Is Back.
Otherworld Chills: Final Tales of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong. Sob! I hope these really aren’t the final tales. I love this series too much to let go. The fifth and final collection of stories–including an original novella exclusive to this book–featuring the fascinating werewolves, witches, necromancers, angels and demons of Kelley Armstrong’s internationally bestselling Women of the Otherworld series. A must-have for fans!
Crosstalk by Connie Williams In the not-too-distant future, a simple outpatient procedure to increase empathy between romantic partners has become all the rage. And Briddey Flannigan is delighted when her boyfriend, Trent, suggests undergoing the operation prior to a marriage proposal—to enjoy better emotional connection and a perfect relationship with complete communication and understanding. But things don’t quite work out as planned, and Briddey finds herself connected to someone else entirely—in a way far beyond what she signed up for.
