Happy #BookBday (7/26/16 Edition)

These three new books are as sizzling hot as their summer #BookBday!

TRULY MADLY GUILTY by Liane Moriarty
A July 2016 LibraryReads pick and a Best Book of Summer 2016! The highly anticipated new book from #1 New York Times bestselling author Moriarty examines marriage, sex, parenthood, and friendship via three seemingly happy families. After all, it’s just a normal weekend BBQ. What could possibly go wrong? “This novel sheds light on the truths that we all fear as parents, spouses, and friends. It’s perfect for those long summer days, but readers will have to pace themselves to not devour it in one sitting.” — Library Journal, starred review

THE SUMMER THAT MELTED EVERYTHING by Tiffany McDaniel
An August 2016 Indie Next pick! The devil comes to Ohio in McDaniel’s breathtaking and heartbreaking literary debut, set in the 1980s in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. “Give this to fans of atmospheric fiction, particularly those who enjoy the grit of Donald Ray Pollock, the foreshadowing of Shirley Jackson, and the mounting suspense of Peter Straub.” — Library Journal readmoreremove

Thriller Thursday (7/14/16 Edition)

The heat is on in these new mysteries hitting shelves this week:

AMONG THE WICKED by Linda Castillo
A July 2016 LibraryReads pick & a BEA 2016 “Shout ‘n Share” selection! In the eighth book in Castillo’s bestselling series, Kate Burkholder goes undercover in an isolated and secretive Amish community in rural, upstate New York to investigate the death of a young girl. “This is a first-rate and very unusual thriller; Castillo builds suspense brilliantly, using both the snowbound setting and the difficulty of working as an undercover Amish woman to great advantage (it’s no easy trick drawing your gun when it’s stashed beneath layers of full-length dresses and aprons).” — Booklist

THE JOLLY ROGER SOCIAL CLUB: A True Story of a Killer in Paradise by Nick Foster
The true story of a series of bold killings which took place in a shadowy American ex-pat community in Panama—a tale of greed, political history, and murder. “A completely riveting true-crime tale.” — Booklist, starred review

ARSENIC WITH AUSTEN by Katherine Bolger Hyde
The first book in a delightful new mystery series in which an English teacher becomes involved in murder cases that reflect elements of her favorite books. “Murders are solved handily, and first love is reignited in this contemporary cozy with a literary bent. An engaging start to a series by debut novelist Hyde.”
