THE BITTERROOTS by C.J. Box

“An appealing new heroine, a fast-moving plot, and a memorably nightmarish family make this one of Box’s best.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Not content with merely ruling Wyoming, Box has become the dominant mystery/thriller author of the mountain West—and deservedly so. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With an announced 300,000-copy run and Box’s legions of fans, there’s not a library in the U.S. that can afford to ignore this one.“–Booklist, starred review

“There are multiple stories, often contradictory, to be found in the many-tentacled web of human tragedy and suffering that Gamache teases to the surface in this moving exploration of ties that both bind and destroy. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The buzz has begun months in advance for the book that will be on every mystery fan’s late-summer must-read list.”–Booklist, starred review

THINGS YOU SAVE IN A FIRE by Katherine Center

“Center gives readers a sharp and witty exploration of love and forgiveness that is at once insightful, entertaining, and thoroughly addictive.“–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“The follow-up to Center’s breakout hit, HOW TO WALK AWAY (2018), in which Cassie had a brief cameo, has all the hallmarks that made readers fall in love with the previous book: an appealing (if guarded, in this case) heroine, a compelling love story, a tearjerking twist, and a thoroughly absorbing story. Another winner from Center.”–Booklist, starred review
