Viața lui Cherry e pe cale să se schimbe pentru totdeauna. Împreună cu tatăl ei, se mută la Somerset, unde o mamă nouă și patru surori noi-nouțe îi așteaptă. Acolo vor să realizeze proiectul la care au visat dintotdeauna: o afacere cu ciocolată.
Dar prima zi petrecută la Somerset îi oferă lui Cherry o surpriză: fermecătorul Shay Fletcher o vrăjește pe loc.
O singură problemă: Shay are deja o iubită... Honey, noua soră vitregă a lui Cherry.
Cherry știe foarte bine că prietenia ei cu Shay e periculoasă.
Dar asta nu înseamnă că poate sta departe de el...
„Emoționant, tandru și de neuitat.” - The Guardian
Seria Clubul fetelor dependente de ciocolată are în distribuție surori rebele, băieți supercool și una dintre marile iubiri ale lui Cathy - ciocolata.
Cathy Cassidy a scris prima ei carte ilustrată când avea nouă ani, pentru fratele său mai mic. În copilărie îi plăcea să realizeze benzi desenate, pe care le vindea prietenilor cu 5 penny bucata. A urmat Art College în Liverpool, apoi a lucrat ca editor pentru celebra revistă Jackie.
Timp de 12 ani a fost „consilier sentimental” la revista pentru adolescenți Shout și profesoară de artă. Apoi s-a dedicat în întregime scrisului, publicând peste 23 de cărți.
Îi plac hainele și jucăriile vechi, mașinile și cărțile. Este, după cum se declara, o vegetariană convinsă îndrăgostită de ciocolată.
Dar, pe măsură ce ancheta lui Strike înaintează, devine limpede că dispariția lui Quine implică mai multe decât și-ar fi imaginat soția lui. Scriitorul tocmai a finalizat un manuscris în care face câte un portret necruțător aproape fiecărei persoane pe care o cunoaște. Dacă romanul ar fi publicat, ar distruge vieți – așadar, sunt mulți care ar vrea să-l reducă la tăcere pe Quine.
Iar când scriitorul este găsit ucis cu brutalitate în împrejurări stranii, pentru Strike devine o cursă contra cronometru să înțeleagă ce l-a împins pe ucigașul nemilos să comită acea crimă atroce...
Oferind o poveste ce se citește pe nerăsuflate, cu răsturnări de situație la tot pasul, Viermele de mătase este al doilea roman din mult apreciata serie care îi are drept protagoniști pe detectivul Cormoran Strike și pe tânăra și curajoasa lui asistentă, Robin Ellacott.
„O poveste despre ranchiună și crimă într-o lume literară toxică. Pur și simplu, nu te poți opri din citit.” - Sunday Times
„Un roman pe care-l devorezi!”- Telegraph
„Viermele de mătase este un roman captivant în care personajele memorabile nu sunt ucigașul sau victima, ci detectivul însărcinat cu rezolvarea cazului și asistenta sa.” - New York Times
„Condimentat cu un umor subtil și replici savuroase, Viermele de mătase e o lectură extrem de agreabilă.” - The Times

Răspuns: aceste trei povești romantice de Crăciun.
O furtună puternică de zăpadă aduce dragostea în viețile a trei adolescenți: o fată al cărei tren s‑a înzăpezit, un băiat ce înfruntă viscolul pentru a se întâlni cu prietenii săi, o altă fată cu inima frântă ce‑și vopsește părul în roz și visează să fie îngerul cuiva.
Trei dintre cei mai cunoscuţi autori americani de literatură pentru adolescenţi – John Green, Maureen Johnson şi Lauren Myracle – şi‑au unit forţele pentru a scrie povești pline de aventură, umor, romantism şi duioşie, ale căror fire se împletesc inteligent la final, într‑o carte numai bună de citit la gura sobei.
În aceste povești tandre, ingenios întrețesute, iubirea plutește printre fulgi de nea, beteală și cadouri de Crăciun! -- School Library Journal
Umor, romantism și personaje puternice – toate dau forță acestui efort narativ. -- Kirkus Reviews
Cărțile lui John Green au fost publicate în peste douăzeci de limbi şi figurează constant în topul celor mai bine vândute titluri al publicaţiei New York Times. Dintre cărțile sale, la Editura Trei au apărut: Sub aceeași stea, Căutând‑o pe Alaska, De 19 ori Katherine, Orașe de hârtie.
Lauren Myracle este autoarea a numeroase cărți pentru copii și adolescenți, printre care Shine, Kissing Kate, seria The Winne Years și The Internet Girls (sttyl și ttfn) – romane scrise în stilul mesajelor instantanee – bestselleruri New York Times.
Maureen Johnson a fost aleasă în 2012 Queen of Teen în Marea Britanie. Printre cărțile sale se numără 13 Little Blue Envelopes, Devilish, Girl at Sea, The Name of the Star și Suite Scarlett.

Si totusi, in Sarpele exisa o singura exceptie, memorabila. Cu putin inainte de sfarsit, dupa ce Dorina a adormit si Andronic se culca si el, «O privi cum doarme langa el, goala si vie, neinchipuit de frumoasa in nestiuta ei sinceritate. Apoi, ca si cum ar fi vrut sa alunge o vraja, Andronic sufla deasupra fruntii fetei, zambi prelung si se culca alaturi, cu obrazul odihnit pe sanul ei». Naratorul poate vedea ca Andronic o priveste pe Dorina, dar nu poate sti cum o vede decat daca intra o clipa in perspectiva lui: «goala si vie, neinchipuit de frumoasa in nestiuta ei sinceritate»“. - Sorin Alexandrescu
Title: STING (Spark, #4)
Author: Jennifer Ryder
Genre: Steamy Erotic Romance
Release Date: Early 2015
BlurbRYAN After two years undercover, Detective Ryan Clark is tasked to the job he’s been waiting for. Ryan, together with undercover operative, Mick Gallagher, could very well be the men responsible for bringing together the biggest drug bust in Australia’s history. The seemingly sleepy coastal town of Fremantle, has become a hotspot for a newly formed drug syndicate, which threatens to flood the market with high-grade coke through the ports. Settling into his new locale, scouting out the local haunts, Ryan finds himself coming back to the same coffee shop. The attraction to Blondie, the local barista, has him puzzled. He knows it’s not just one-sided. She’s trying to keep her distance. It only makes him want her more. WILLOW Willow Asher left it all behind. Not by choice. After two long years, she’s finally getting somewhere. Willow has a busy café a stone’s throw from the beach. It’s her pride and joy, and her buxom business partner, Gabby, is the closest thing to family to speak of. Although Willow’s past still plagues her thoughts, she’s determined to one day have her happily ever after. Just not yet. What she doesn’t need is the complications of Mr Sexy-Brown-Eyes, who seems to be drinking more and more coffee. She doesn’t want the questions. She’s still trying to get her story straight.
ExcerptThe curvy redhead behind the counter warmly greets everyone like their old friends, winking and smiling, her iridescent hot pink lipstick unmissable. Her silver nametag bears the name ‘Gabby’. “Well, it’s a good morning now,” the redhead says, her hazel eyes sizing me up when I move to the front of the line. She smirks, and readies her hand on the register. “What’ll it be, honey?” “Large flat white, thanks.” “That’s four dollars, please.” I pay, and she hands me my change, her hot pink fingernails grazing my outstretched palm. The redhead slides a piece of paper across the counter and a small hand from behind the machine takes it. Apart from the noise you wouldn’t even know someone was there with the cups piled high on top. A flash of messy blonde hair dashes out from behind the machine. “Is that take,” she says, and her jaw goes slack as her pretty eyes scan from my chest up to my face. “Huh?” I say, leaning in closer to the counter, taking in an eyeful of her petite body, golden tanned skin against the stark whiteness of her tank top. I don’t miss the growing blush that’s spreading across her freckled cheeks either. She shakes her head and briefly closes her eyes as she huffs out a breath. “Sorry, take-away?” “Nah, think I might stay?” I say and nod. Yep. Definitely staying. “Um, sure. Take a seat,” she says and turns to her colleague. “Gabs, can you give him a number?” “Oh, honey. I’ll give this one a number alright.” I chuckle, and take the number on a metal stand that she hands me. Blondie gives me a tickle of a smile and then returns behind the machine. I lazily wander to the only vacant chair in the corner, and wait impatiently for blondie to deliver my coffee. I’ve got a fuckin’ good feeling I’m gonna enjoy this assignment.
