If You Were Here

Burke, who from her first novel has demonstrated that she is incapable of writing badly, sets her own bar and exceeds it once again with her latest effort, which transcends the already high standard that fans of the mystery and suspense genres have come to expect and demand.


Zero Hour

The release of ZERO HOUR celebrates Clive Cussler’s 40th year of exciting storytelling, and his plotting skills remain at the top of high-stakes adventure writing.

Written by two highly intelligent people who have an unusual penchant for frank self-examination, Double Double could offer others a rational trail out of the fog of alcoholism.


A Serpent's Tooth: A Walt Longmire Mystery

While the genre of western fiction has never really died, its resurgence, due to this series and others, is most welcome. Read A Serpent's Tooth and find out why.

Pandora's longing to help her brother, combined with her desire to revive her struggling marriage, will ring true for many readers, as will her struggle to confront the shame of her brother's condition and her own fixations with food and dieting.


The Kill Room

While The Kill Room is Deaver’s most challenging book to date, it is arguably his most entertaining and suspenseful as well.


Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns

The details of celebrity weddings in exotic locations with extravagant, luxurious details will provide Hollywood with another blockbuster movie.


Called Again: A Story of Love and Triumph

A serviceably written yet inspired exploration of the meaning of commitment.


The Other Typist

Rindell’s grasp on how to weave genre, characters, narration, and setting into a compelling tale on her first time out makes her an author worth watching closely.

TransAtlantic is still a fantastically depicted journey from the past to the present, and perhaps the most interesting primer on U.S.-Irish relations ever created.


We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves

Fowler's smart and exquisitely sad novel provokes us to think about a lot of aspects of our relationship to animals that most of us would rather ignore.


The Other Typist

There are places where The Other Typist doesn't quite cohere, but for all its flaws it knows how to enchant.


Of Triton

If you’re looking for something faced paced and fun this summer, look no further than Of Triton! Just make sure you read Of Poseidon first! I can’t wait for the next one!


The Last Camellia: A Novel

If you're looking for an entertaining summer read, definitely check out The Last Camellia. Sarah Jio is a great writer and I have a feeling she'll be sticking around for a long time to come!


Appointment in Samarra

I think the reader will gain unique insight what upper middle class American’s were experiencing during that age.


Shadow People

Last year, when I went to Houston’s Murder by the Book to attend the author event for Dark Magic, I learned that Swain is an established magician and illusionist. He performed a magic show right there in the bookstore.


The Woman Upstairs

This was my first time reading Claire Messud, but it definitely won’t be the last. She clearly knows how to develop a character in such an intricate way that the character’s story, their flaws and strengths become personal to the reader.


The Sweet Girl

A provocative tale that undoes any romantic delusions a reader might hold about ancient Greek society and thought.


The Interestings: A Novel

The book is big and broad and full of ideas, and it raises important contemporary questions about art and privilege, happiness and success’s relationship to happiness, and what truly sustains friendship and intimacy over the course of a life.
