The Baronet's Bride

by May Agnes Fleming

I'm not even past the first paragraph yet and one word sums the book up: MELODRAMATIC! This is hilariously over the top prose. All in all, I think it should be an amusing read, a sort of literary, thrill-and-chill roller coaster.

Patty Fairfield

by Carolyn Wells

I have always loved early 20th century girls' fiction, but just discovered the Patty Fairfield series. What a delight! Patty is midway between classics like Little Women and girls' series books such as the Stratemeyers; accessible yet with Carolyn Wells' trademark witty touch.

Recommended for anyone who loves classic children's stories filled with laughter and fun.

Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm

by Kate Douglas Wiggin

I first read this book when I was seven, which was over forty years ago. I loved it then (how I wished for a pink parasol like Rebecca's!) but I think I enjoyed it even more as an adult. Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm recalls a sweeter, more innocent and trusting time in our history.

Definitely a must-read for fans of LM Montgomery's "Anne" series.

She loves keeping her readers guessing, but also appealing to their senses with charming scenes straight from East Hampton, quirky characters and mouthwatering food descriptions. When she is not writing her latest novel, Doyle is sure to be part of one of a myriad of projects, which may include co-writing with another author, doing magazine articles, interviewing celebrities, arranging events or cooking up a storm in the kitchen. As our Author of the Day, Doyle talks about why her books are so yummy, gives us some insights in the character of Antonia Bingham and reveals why East Hampton is her favorite place in the world.
