Maximum Shelf: RED, WHITE & ROYAL BLUE

Today’s featured Maximum Shelf Awareness pick is the big-hearted rom-com of the summer, RED, WHITE & ROYAL BLUE by Casey McQuiston.

First Son Alex Claremont-Diaz is the closest thing to a prince this side of the Atlantic. With his intrepid sister and the Veep’s genius granddaughter, they’re the White House Trio, a beautiful millennial marketing strategy for his mother, President Ellen Claremont. International socialite duties do have downsides—namely, when photos of a confrontation with his longtime nemesis Prince Henry at a royal wedding leak to the tabloids and threaten American/British relations.

The plan for damage control: staging a fake friendship between the First Son and the Prince. Alex is busy enough handling his mother’s bloodthirsty opponents and his own political ambitions without an uptight royal slowing him down. But beneath Henry’s Prince Charming veneer, there’s a soft-hearted eccentric with a dry sense of humor and more than one ghost haunting him.

As President Claremont kicks off her reelection bid, Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret relationship with Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations. And Henry throws everything into question for Alex, an impulsive, charming guy who thought he knew everything: What is worth the sacrifice? How do you do all the good you can do? And, most importantly, how will history remember you?

“Casey McQuiston dazzles with RED, WHITE & ROYAL BLUE. Passion characterizes every moment of this smart, mischievous, gratifying and sensitive novel. The punch lines are deft, the sex is steamy and the romance is stirring.”

Maximum Shelf: A NEARLY NORMAL FAMILY

Today’s featured Maximum Shelf Awareness pick is the legal thriller/family drama of the summer: M.T. Edvardsson’s A NEARLY NORMAL FAMILY.

A legal thriller told in three acts, A NEARLY NORMAL FAMILY follows eighteen-year-old Stella, who stands accused of the brutal murder of a man almost 15 years her senior. Stella is an ordinary teenager from an upstanding local family. What reason could she have to know a shady businessman, let alone to kill him?

Chronologically told through three perspectives, readers follow both the story of a crime and the unraveling of a seemingly normal family: the father, a pastor; the daughter, a recent high school graduate; and the mother, a criminal defense attorney. Testing the moral compass of the pastor father and attorney mother, dazzling storyteller M.T. Edvardsson weaves a web in which everyone becomes entangled and nothing is what it seems.

“At its core, A NEARLY NORMAL FAMILY asks: How well do you know your loved ones? Or your best friend? Or anyone? Whom can you trust? Edvardsson doesn’t give easy answers, and even throws in commentary about the Swedish legal system when it comes to determining guilt or innocence. But the author raises provocative questions, wraps them up in a propulsive thriller and delivers an ultra-satisfying read that’s far from ordinary.”–Shelf Awareness

A Scottoline For Every Season

ScottolineSeason_2015Friends, it’s no secret we’ve got a huge lady-crush on Lisa Scottoline. She’s HILARIOUS, generous, incredibly down-to-earth, and a phenomenally talented, prolific writer. Fortunately for us readers and rabid fans, there’s a Scottoline for every season! (And free galleys of her newest Rosato & DiNunzio book, CORRUPTED!)

Every Winter, Lisa explores the complex themes of emotional justice in her standalone novels. EVERY FIFTEEN MINUTES was a knockout New York Times bestseller with FOUR starred reviews, an Indie Next pick, a People Magazine Best Book of the Week pick, AND the movie rights were sold.
We can’t wait to see what she does next in MOST WANTED, coming April 2016.

Every Summer, enjoy the “short, sharp musings on life from the perennially hilarious mom-daughter duo” (Good Housekeeping) when Lisa and daughter Francesca team up for their essay collections, including DOES THIS BEACH MAKE ME LOOK FAT?, HAVE A NICE GUILT TRIP, MEET ME AT EMOTIONAL BAGGAGE CLAIM, and more.

Every Fall, delve into the heart of the dynamic relationship of the Rosato & DiNunzio series. Longtime fans are thrilled to see Bennie Rosato and her all-female law firm back in action with the relaunch of the series (ACCUSED and BETRAYED).

In her newest book, CORRUPTED, Bennie Rosato is forced to confront a failure in her past and try to make it right. Thirteen years ago, Bennie took on Jason Leftavick, a twelve-year-old boy who was sent to a juvenile detention center after fighting a class bully. Bennie couldn’t free Jason, and to this day it’s the case that haunts her. Jason has grown up in and out of juvenile prison, and his adulthood hasn’t been any easier. Bennie no longer represents those accused of murder, but when Jason is indicted for killing the same bully he fought with as a kid, she sees no choice but to represent him. She doesn’t know whether or not to believe his claims of innocence, but she knows she owes him for past failures-of the law, of the juvenile justice system, and of herself. Forced to relive the darkest period of her life, Bennie will do everything in her power to get the truth, and justice.

It’s already received a starred review from Booklist:
“Both the juvenile case and the murder case are compelling on their own, but the combination and the glimpse into Bennie’s younger self make this a wonderful addition to an always-strong series. Scottoline is an A-lister all the way, and her Rosato series is always an A-plus in terms of reader interest.”

We love it and would like you to consider nominating it for the October 2015 LibraryReads list (nominations due 8/20), so we’re giving away galleys of CORRUPTED to adult librarians currently employed in the U.S.!*

To request a copy, please email library@macmillanusa.com from your library-issued email account with the subject line “Corrupted” and your mailing address.

Happy Reading!
