Monthly Subscription to the Brenda Novak Book Boxes:
This is a monthly subscription box service. Each month we hand select several reader related items to put in these boxes along with one or two autographed books. You will choose between an autographed copy of the group’s current read or an autographed Brenda Novak book specially selected for that month. If Brenda Novak has a new release coming out, then the option will be either an autographed copy of her new release or an autographed book from her backlist (one that has been selected for that month). There will be a surprise gift you won’t know about until you receive the box. One random person each month will receive an even “bigger” mystery gift.
As a monthly subscriber, you will receive first choice in books. We’ll start with who signed up first and then move to more recent sign ups. We will send you an email with the options a month prior to mailing out the boxes. We will mail out the boxes on the first few days of each month. We are only set up to accept credit card payments and subscriptions can only be bought alone, not in combination with other products. In other words, if you’d like other products here at the Brenda Novak Store, you’ll need to handle that in a separate transaction.

This box will contain an autographed copy of Brenda Novak’s brand new release, WHEN I FOUND YOU, a story about love and forgiveness with a wonderful happily-ever-after, a sterling silver paperclip bracelet (Retail value $40) perfect to wear alone or add future charms to, the next issue of Reading with Brenda Novak (Issue No. 3), which will include the only print version of the bonus epilogue for THE BOOKSTORE ON THE BEACH, an article about Nantucket, an article from Brenda’s editor of twenty years about the author/editor relationship, some great recipes and more. And we can’t forget that there will also be a surprise item! ;)
Here's what WHEN I FOUND YOU is about:
Sometimes the biggest emotional risk can reap the best romantic reward…
After everything she worked for is destroyed, pediatrician Natasha Gray is determined to build a new life. Divorced, bankrupt and suddenly a single mom, she’s ready to start over in Silver Springs—on her own. She certainly doesn’t need help from Mack Amos, the man who’s already broken her heart twice.
Although Mack has had feelings for Tash since they first met, too many things have stood in the way. He’s always given her the support she needs, though, and he’ll do the same now. Even if the desire he wrestles with threatens to undermine his intentions…
But her heart is not the only reason Natasha wants to keep Mack at bay. More time in her life means getting closer to her son, which could lead to a revelation neither of them is ready to face.
This box will contain an autographed copy of Brenda Novak's new Christmas book, KEEP ME WARM AT CHRISTMAS! It will also have an 11-oz mug with twenty of Brenda's books painted by artist Jane Mount (similar to the one pictured below, except with Brenda's titles), the newest issue of her magazine, Reading with Brenda Novak, Issue No. 4, and a darling "Ugly Sweater" sugar cookie—a true work of art—made by Alex Cole Edible Art.
Here's what KEEP ME WARM AT CHRISTMAS is about:
Maybe this Christmas can thaw his frozen heart—and heal hers.
Hollywood starlet Tia Beckett knows one moment can change your life. Her career had been on the fast track before a near-fatal accident left her with a debilitating facial scar. Certain her A-lister dreams are over, she agrees to house-sit at her producer’s secluded estate in Silver Springs. It’s the escape from the limelight Tia’s been craving, until she discovers she’s not the only houseguest for the holidays. And her handsome new roomie is impossible to ignore.
Artist Seth Turner has good reason to keep his distance. Losing his wife after only a few years of marriage has left a deep scar, even if he is still happy to spend a semester teaching art classes at the New Horizons Boys Ranch for troubled teens. Despite nursing her own wounds, Tia finds her curiosity piqued by enigmatic Seth, whom she recognizes as something of a kindred soul. Maybe spending Christmas together could be another game changer for both of them—this time, for good.
This box will contain an autographed trade paper copy of WHAT IF YOU AND ME by Roni Loren, an autographed copy of a Nicole Helm Harlequin romance and a BN triangular acacia wood nightstand bookmark. We love the way they turned out! It's so easy to just roll over and set your book on it before drifting off to sleep. We will also be including some fabulous caramel popcorn in this box from The Chocolate Covered Wagon in Utah (it's the best!) and a surprise item.
Here's what WHAT IF YOU AND ME is about:
The world can be a scary place. At least, that's what Andi Lockley's anxiety wants her to believe. It doesn't help that she narrowly escaped a dangerous man years ago, or that every relationship since has been colored with that lingering fear. But things are better now—she's channeling everything into her career as a horror novelist and true crime podcaster, and her next book may be the breakthrough she needs.
If only her grumpy new neighbor would stop stomping around at all hours of the night.
Former firefighter Hill Dawson can't sleep. After losing part of his leg in a rescue gone wrong, he's now stuck in limbo. He needs to figure out what he's supposed to do with his life, and he can't let himself get distracted by the pretty redhead next door. But when someone breaks into Andi's place, Hill can't stop himself from rushing in to play the hero. Soon, a tentative bond forms between the unlikely pair. But what starts out as a neighborly exchange quickly turns into the chance for so much more...if Andi can learn to put aside her fear and trust in herself—and love—again.
This box will contain an autographed trade paper copy of DEFENDING BRITTA STEIN by Ron Balson, which is a truly fabulous book, a beautiful navy blue vegan leather bag AND a matching wallet. Talk about a great value! And there will also be a surprise item.
Here's what DEFENDING BRITTA STEIN is about:
Chicago, 2018: Ole Henryks, a popular restauranteur, is set to be honored by the Danish/American Association for his many civic and charitable contributions. Frequently appearing on local TV, he is well known for his actions in Nazi-occupied Denmark during World War II—most consider him a hero.
Britta Stein, however, does not. The ninety-year-old Chicago woman levels public accusations against Henryks by spray-painting “Coward,” “Traitor,” “Collaborator,” and “War Criminal” on the walls of his restaurant. Mrs. Stein is ultimately taken into custody and charged with criminal defacement of property. She also becomes the target of a bitter lawsuit filed by Henryks and his son, accusing her of defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Attorney Catherine Lockhart, though hesitant at first, agrees to take up Mrs. Stein's defense. With the help of her investigator husband, Liam Taggart, Lockhart must reach back into wartime Denmark and locate evidence that proves Mrs. Stein's innocence. Defending Britta Steinis critically-acclaimed author Ronald H. Balson's thrilling take on a modern day courtroom drama, and a masterful rendition of Denmark’s wartime heroics.
We are putting together a limited amount of a very a special summer release box that will include an autographed copy of Debbie Macomber’s brand new hardcover release, IT'S BETTER THIS WAY, an autographed hardcover of Brenda Novak's new release, WHEN I FOUND YOU (or BEFORE WE WERE STRANGERS), a pink book group insulated wine mug, a S'mores dessert kit (something we'll eat together at Brenda's and Debbie's joint release part on July 22nd in their holiday group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/holidaysdmbn), and our favorite summer dip made by Seasonal Selections (a delicious garlic dip where you just add mayo and sour cream and you’re ready to go).
