Tis’ the season for Manhattan Public Library to be adding lots of new holiday fiction to the collection, just in time for Christmas. Some of the new titles include Christmas Roses by Amanda Cabot–Celia Anderson is a widow running a boarding house to provide for her daughter and hoping to find love in her life. When a man comes to town searching for his father, he takes a room for the Wyoming winter, not expecting to find love in the remote town–a heartwarming tale of Christmas miracles. Twelfth Night Secrets by Jane Feather is the story of Lady Harriet Devere, who assisted her brother Nick in spying against the French until his death. In an attempt to uncover the spy responsible for Nick’s death, Harriet is asked to try to discover if Julius Forsythe, Earl of Marbury, is a double agent for the French. As she observes Julius, she realizes her attraction to him, but can she fall in love with a spy? Other new holiday titles include A Christmas Garland by Anne Perry, The Twelve Clues of Christmas by Rhys Bowen, An Amish Gift by Cynthia Keller and Merry Christmas, Alex Cross by James Patterson.
