An indecent proposal has fatal repercussions in this “hypnotic” thriller from the author of Keep Your Friends Close (Kirkus Reviews). Roz has reached her breaking point. Her marriage and business have both failed. And with debts racking up, she’s struggling to provide for her nine-year-old son, who is starting to misbehave in school. Then, at her sister’s fortieth birthday party, a perfect—albeit indecent—opportunity presents itself. Scott Elias is wealthy, powerful, and very married. But he wants Roz and he’s willing to pay for the privilege of her company. Offering cash in exchange for a no-strings-attached night of intimacy, Scott’s deal could clear Roz’s debts, get her life back on track, and maybe give her the chance to have some fun in the bargain. But as the situation spirals out of control, Roz is forced to do things she never thought herself capable of . . . “[Daly] has a real gift for mixing insightful writing on domestic life with a suspenseful premise.” —Booklist “Daly heats things up fast.” —Kirkus Reviews

Amadeus meets Little Women in this irresistibly delightful historical novel by award-winning author Stephanie Cowell. The year is 1777 and the four Weber sisters, daughters of a musical family, share a crowded, artistic life in a ramshackle house.

Bringing eighteenth-century Europe to life with unforgiving winters, yawning princes, scheming parents, and the enduring passions of young talent, Stephanie Cowell’s richly textured tale captures a remarkable historical figure—and the four young women who engage his passion, his music, and his heart.
