In Romancing Mr. Bridgerton, Penelope Featherington has officially been labeled a spinster. After fourteen London seasons, she has no prospects for marriage. She has decided that this is okay. She will forever live with her insufferable mother, Portia, and love Colin Bridgerton from afar.
Colin Bridgerton can’t stop running away. At the smallest hint of marriage and romance, he leaves London for a faraway county. He couldn’t possibly find someone appealing enough to settle down. But, he terribly misses his family and his best friend Penelope when he is away.
This book is the fourth book in the Bridgerton series. It tells the story of how Colin and Penelope go from best friends to lovers. Check out this book in the Library and on Hoopla.
Candace Swain’s murder was three years ago and is now a cold case. As a popular member of her sorority, good student and volunteer at a rescue mission, Candace is right on track for a promising future as an inner-city nurse. Those plans are forever erased when she turns up dead two weeks after going missing from the big Sigma Rho Spring Fling party. No one has any idea who would want Candace dead, except for the vagrant man who is constantly getting in trouble for hanging around the campus. But he is missing, too.
Lucas Vega is an intern at the medical examiner’s office and is obsessed with finding out the truth about Candace’s death. He stumbles on some new information and decides to interview a former U.S. Marshal, Regan Merritt, for her insight into the case for his true crime podcast. New information continues to surface about the two weeks before Candace was found dead – and someone isn’t happy. The more of the truth that comes out- the more people start to get hurt. What secrets remain buried with Candace?
