The Agatha Award–winning author of Grilling the Subject returns to the Cookbook Nook in Crystal Cove, where the annual Renaissance Fair serves up a helping of crafty courtiers, damsels in distress, and medieval murder . . . As the annual Renaissance Fair comes to Crystal Cove, Jenna Hart’s Cookbook Nook is packed with tasty treats and all things medieval, while her pal Bailey is ready to swoon over her upcoming nuptials at a local vineyard. But when the two friends discover the body of the vineyard’s owner bludgeoned by a winepress, all their merriment fades, along with their hopes for a vintage year. Which churlish varlet did the deed? Was it the victim’s errant brother, who stood to inherit the vineyards? Or the owner’s crestfallen ex-girlfriend? Mayhap it was the newly arrived comely wench, or her jealous husband. Fie on them all! Verily, Jenna can’t rest until justice is served, and she vows to track down the killer. But can she sniff out the truth before the villainous culprit strikes again? Includes tantalizing recipes! Praise for Daryl Wood Gerber and the Cookbook Nook Mysteries: “There’s a feisty new amateur sleuth in town and her name is Jenna Hart. With a bodacious cast of characters, a wrenching murder, and a collection of cookbooks to die for, Daryl Wood Gerber’s Final Sentence is a page-turning puzzler of a mystery that I could not put down.” —Jenn McKinlay, New York Times bestselling author of the Cupcake Mysteries and Library Lovers Mysteries “In Final Sentence, the author smartly blends crime, recipes, and an array of cookbooks that all should covet in a witty, well-plotted whodunit.” —Kate Carlisle, New York Times bestselling author of the Bibliophile Mysteries “Readers will relish the extensive cookbook suggestions, the cooking primer, and the whole foodie phenomenon. Gerber’s perky tone with a multigenerational cast makes this series a good match for Lorna Barrett’s Booktown Mystery series . . .” —Library Journal “So pull out your cowboy boots and settle in for a delightful read. Grilling the Subject is a delicious new mystery that will leave you hungry for more.” —Carstairs Considers Blog

Nella Oortman n’a que dix-huit ans ce jour d’automne 1686 où elle quitte son petit village pour rejoindre à Amsterdam son mari, Johannes Brandt. Homme d’âge mûr, il est l’un des marchands les plus en vue de la ville. Il vit dans une opulente demeure au bord du canal, entouré de ses serviteurs et de sa sœur, Marin, une femme restée célibataire qui accueille Nella avec une extrême froideur. En guise de cadeau de mariage, Johannes offre à son épouse une maison de poupée, représentant leur propre intérieur, que la jeune fille entreprend d’animer grâce aux talents d’un miniaturiste. Les fascinantes créations de l’artisan permettent à Nella de lever peu à peu le voile sur les mystères de la maison des Brandt, faisant tomber les masques de ceux qui l’habitent et mettant au jour de dangereux secrets. S’inspirant d'une maison de poupée d’époque exposée au Rijksmuseum d’Amsterdam, Jessie Burton livre ici un premier roman qui restitue avec précision l’ambiance de la ville à la fin du XVIIe siècle. Au sein de ce monde hostile, où le pouvoir des guildes le dispute à l'intransigeance religieuse et à la rigueur morale, la jeune Nella apparaît comme une figure féminine résolument moderne. Œuvre richement documentée et conte fantastique, Miniaturiste est un récit haletant et puissant sur la force du destin et la capacité de chacun à déterminer sa propre existence.

Écrit par le meilleur spécialiste de J.R.R. Tolkien, cet ouvrage présente toute l’œuvre de Tolkien, depuis Le Hobbit jusqu’au Seigneur des Anneaux, en passant par Le Silmarillion, mais aussi tous les contes (Feuille de Niggle), les essais sur la littérature... avec un souci constant de pédagogie, mettant à la portée des profanes comme des amateurs de Tolkien les problématiques les plus complexes liées à la création d’un monde. Comment peut-on écrire une mythologie ? Pourquoi les Hobbits semblent ils si proches de nous ? Les méchants sont-ils vraiment mauvais ? Pourquoi Le Seigneur des Anneaux, publié il y a soixante ans, nous paraît-il si actuel ? La clarté de Tom Shippey passe par un style enlevé, mais aussi humoristique, lorsqu’il s’en prend aux critiques jugeant l’œuvre de Tolkien le plus souvent sans l’avoir lu. Il répond finalement à cette question : pourquoi la Fantasy et Tolkien dérangent-ils tant ? N’est-ce pas parce que le genre de la Fantasy parvient, mieux que d’autres, à parler au lecteur de son monde et de lui-même ?

Vous prévoyez d'annoncer votre mariage à votre famille ? Un conseil : ne faites pas comme Katie ! Choisissez bien votre moment et faites preuve de diplomatie. Surtout si l'heureux élu est une brute épaisse dotée d'un pois chiche à la place du cerveau. Présentez les choses avec tact et délicatesse. Tout particulièrement si votre famille cache, derrière les apparences de la plus tranquille bourgeoisie londonienne, quelques prédispositions au dérapage collectif... Il faut dire que pour Katie, entre un père hypocondriaque, une mère volage, un frère homosexuel qui n'assume pas son orientation, sans compter son propre caractère de cochon, la situation a de quoi devenir... légèrement délicate !

A travers près de cent-vingt œuvres et une trentaine de photographies révélant le visage et le quotidien de Cézanne, cet ouvrage offre une biographie du père de l'art moderne mais aussi une superbe promenade dans les sites qui sont devenus les hauts lieux du mythe cézannien ; la montagne Sainte-Victoire, l'Estaque ou le refuge familial. Du jas de Bouffan. Par le biais de ces sites où la nature semble éternelle, par des thèmes intemporels, par ses " Baigneuses " ou ses natures mortes, Cézanne incarne à lui seul la grande rupture de la peinture occidentale depuis le Quattrocento et le point de départ de toutes les innovations picturales du XXe siècle. L'inventivité du travail de Cézanne aboutira ainsi au cubisme : belle revanche pour celui dont l'œuvre fut incomprise durant une grande partie de sa vie et toujours refusée par les instances officielles.
