Book of the Week #30

Emeralds Included: A Jana Bibi Adventure by Betsy Woodman (Henry Holt and Company, 2014)
Feathers fly and cultures clash as the Jolly Grant House prepares to welcome a special delivery from Scotland.
In the third installment of the Jana Bibi series, Betsy Woodman takes us back to the Jolly Grant house for the arrival of Jana’s son, Jack, from Scotland, and his Hungarian bride-to-be, Katarina Esterhazy. The whole gang is excited to welcome their international visitors—and Jana is determined to repair the house to Jack’s high standards and those of her grandfather, from whom she inherited the eccentric building. But this puts a strain on Jana, both emotionally and financially, and she risks her most prized and valuable possession—the (surprisingly real!) emeralds she got from the Treasure Emporium—to help her through it.
New Hampshire resident Betsy Woodman takes us to India in the mid-twentieth century in this charming series which began with Jana Bibi's Excellent Fortunes.

Woodman has readings coming up at Gibson's (Thursday, 7/24/2014) and Toadstool, Keene (Saturday, 7/26/2014).
