Take a look at these six great stories, each with a gift or experience to match. They’re sure to be a hit with Mom, offering sweet memories of a perfect Mother’s Day long after she turns the very last page.
If Mom Loves Historical Romance
Whisk Mom back to a past era with a new historical romance release, like The Secret Marriage Pact by Georgie Lee, and pair it with a tin of her favorite tea and a beautiful teacup to brew it in, or with an afternoon out at a hotel or restaurant that serves high tea. How posh!
If Mom Loves Contemporary Romance
There’s nothing nicer to give a busy mom than the gift of relaxation and a temporary escape—and that’s easy to achieve when you put together a package filled with luscious bath items and a great new contemporary romance like Fortune’s Surprise Engagement (The Fortunes of Texas: The Secret Fortunes) by Nancy Robards Thompson.
If Mom Loves Romantic Suspense
Thrills, chills and intrigue: if the mom in your life likes the element of surprise and figuring out whodunit, why not get her an exciting read like Regan Black’s A Stranger She Can Trust, her newest book in the Escape Club Heroes series, then team up with her for a trendy, adventurous night at an escape room? Crack the codes, solve the puzzles and make it out in less than 60 minutes to claim victory.
If Mom Loves Women’s Fiction
Friendship, family and falling in love are all hallmarks of women’s fiction, and if this is what Mom likes, then she’ll love the re-release of Sherryl Wood’s Along Came Trouble (A Trinity Harbor Novel) paired with a delicious treat of a dozen cupcakes that are as sweet and sassy as the heroines of her favorite fiction.
If Mom Loves Paranormal Romance
Readers of paranormal romance are fans of fantasy realms and are not afraid to push boundaries and delve into a world where anything is possible. Reward your adventurous mom with a fantastic new release like Taming the Hunter (The Decadent Dames) by Michele Hauf, and package it alongside a gorgeous geode, crystal or gemstone necklace—something that hints at a world both beautiful and mysterious.
If Mom Loves Inspirational Romance
Family is everything to the mom who loves inspirational romance stories, so look for a heartfelt new release like The Dad Next Door from the Family Blessings series by Stephanie Dees, and inspire Mom with a print that features a beautiful line of poetry or a quote on it.
