The Cowkeeper’s Wish: A Genealogical Journey by Kristen den Hartog
Douglas and McIntyre
In the 1840s, a young cowkeeper and his wife arrive in London, England, having walked from coastal Wales with their cattle. They hope to escape poverty, but instead they plunge deeper into it, and the family, ensconced in one of London’s “black holes,” remains mired there for generations. The Cowkeeper’s Wish follows the couple’s descendants in and out of slum housing, bleak workhouses and insane asylums, through tragic deaths, marital strife and war. Nearly a hundred years later, their great-granddaughter finds herself in an altogether different London, in southern Ontario.
Murder at the Flamingo by Rachel McMillan
“Maybe it was time to land straight in the middle of the adventure…”
When a corpse is discovered at the Flamingo nightclub, heiress Reggie Van Buren and struggling lawyer Hamish DeLuca quickly learn there is a vast chasm between the haves and the have-nots in 1937 Boston. As Hamish is forced to choose between his conscience and his loyalty, the unlikely sleuthing duo work to expose a murder before the darkness destroys everything they’ve worked to build.
