Highlight: New Downton Abbey Read Alikes

Schmaling is going “cock-a-hoop” over some of our new titles inspired by Downton Abbey.

LADY ALMINA AND THE REAL DOWNTON ABBEY, and              LADY CATHERINE, THE EARL, AND THE REAL DOWNTON ABBEY, both by Lady Fiona Carnarvon (read about them here)

THE DAUGHTER OF HIGHLAND HALL, and                                             THE GOVERNESS OF HIGHLAND HALL, both by Carrie Turansky

THE UNOFFICIAL DOWNTON ABBEY COOKBOOK, by Emily Ansara Baines (excellent review here)

Read Into a Little Christmas Cheer!

Schmaling has Christmas books lining most of the window ledges in an effort to help you get into the right spirit this season.  We have also tried to label all holiday books with a “Christmas” sticker on the spine to aid in their quicker discovery.

I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round apart from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if anything belonging to it can be apart from that – as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time.  ~Charles Dickens
