Season's Greetings and See You In The New Year!

Hey, everyone

Christmas in Germany means plenty of cold, snowy days and nights, with Glühwein and Stollen to keep us warm! Or maybe hot chocolate with a sneaky Bailey's in it! 😁 We are closed from 23rd December, through to the 5th January, although I may sneak in some reviews during that time.

Thank you for keeping us company throughout another difficult year. Let's hope 2022 brings some good news! Until then, I wish you all Merry Christmas, Yuletide Blessings, Happy Holidays, Joyeux Noël, Feliz Navidad, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanzaa (plus any I may have missed out!) and a Healthy and Happy 2022.

The next newsletter will be going out on 1st February, so don't forget to subscribe to ensure you don't miss out on any deals. Also, if you have a new release or a sale, don't forget to either join our Facebook group Archaeolibrarians Book Group or email so you can be included in the newsletter.

Until next time, take care and stay healthy!


Hex Work (Babylon Boy #1) by T.A. Moore

My name is Jonah Carrow, and it’s been 300 days since I laid a hex.

OK, Jonah Carrow isn’t actually an alcoholic. But there’s no support group of lapsed hex-slingers in Jerusalem, so he’s got to make do. He goes for the bad coffee and the reminder that he just has to take normal one day at a time.

Unfortunately, his past isn’t willing to go down without a fight.

A chance encounter with a desperate Deborah Seddon, and a warning that ‘they’re watching’, pulls Jonah back into the world he’d tried to leave behind. Now he has to navigate ghosts, curses, and the hottest bad idea warlock he’s ever met…all without a single hex to his name.

But nobody ever said normal was easy. Not to Jonah anyhow.

Release Date: 23rd November 2021

Incorrigible (Slumming It #3) by S.M. Shade

What have I done?

Everything was going so well. I have a job that I adore and I just earned my degree in library science.

I also have the best friends a girl could want, who weren't about to let my graduation pass without a celebration.

It's not their fault. They couldn't have guessed how it would turn out. If I can help it, they'll never know all those drinks lead to Marty's satisfied face smiling down at me in his bed the next morning.

My concern when we decided to share this apartment with the guys was that we'd be dealing with a steady stream of women running through Marty's bedroom, not that I'd be one of them.

The idea is laughable. Yes, he's good looking. Tall and muscular with golden brown skin from working out in the sun every day. It isn't hard to understand why women fall at his feet when they see him. But I know him.

This is the same guy who never misses a chance to take his shirt off to flex around women and once asked his Alexa to call him Daddy.

It's safe to say nothing will ever happen between us again.

Now & Then (Parker City Mystery #1) by Justin M. Kiska

Parker City now…Parker City then…Every city has its stories and secrets.

In the spring of 1981, Parker City is rocked by a series of brutal murders. Unthinkable crimes the likes of which are unheard of in the close-knit community. Under great pressure from the powers-that-be, it is made clear to newly minted Parker City Police Detectives Ben Winters and Tommy Mason that their first case could very well be their last if they can’t catch the killer.

Decades later, after distinguished careers in law enforcement, Ben and Tommy find themselves on the eve of retirement. But in their final days on the job, their very first case comes back to haunt them in a heart-wrenching twist, leaving everyone to wonder–did they get it wrong all those years ago? Has the killer been on the loose all this time?

The investigation unfolds simultaneously in the ‘80s and the present as the case of the Spring Strangler looms large over Parker City.

Overachiever (Slumming It #2) by S.M. Shade

It started with a summer job and a ridiculous sex dream.

If you were to ask my friends to describe me, they’d tell you I’m an ambitious person. Responsible, driven, and focused on my goals. Words like stubborn and uptight would probably get thrown in there too. I’m not sure about that, but I know who I’m not.

I’m not the woman who lets a guy derail me from my plans. Watching others make that mistake has taught me well. No serious dating. No relationship until I’m successfully settled into my career. That’s the promise I made to myself and I’m determined to keep it.

Despite being an excellent student, there’s one lesson I fear I’ve learned too late. Funny men aren’t as harmless as they seem and should be avoided at all times. They sneak in under your radar and end up under your skirt. One second you’re laughing. The next you’re hunting for your underwear on a hotel room floor. Believe me, it’s not worth it.

If only my heart would stop screaming louder than my brain, I might be able to believe that Owen falls into that category. He’s my friend, but every day we spend together in this hotel, or working on our summer job building houses for charity, the harder it gets to convince myself we shouldn’t be more.

Years of diligence, and I’m being destroyed by a goofy smile.
