HOW TO BE HUMAN by Paula Cocozza
Two starred reviews! “A debut novel from Guardian feature writer Cocozza, this disquieting story details the obsessive romance between a woman and a fox. A singular love story of dominance and betrayal, this novel sets the tone for what will hopefully be a long and strange literary career.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

SOME RISE BY SIN by Philip Caputo
New York Times bestselling author Caputo tells the story of a Franciscan priest struggling to walk a moral path through the shifting and fatal realities of an isolated Mexican village. “An old-fashioned novel in the best way, a work of genuine heft, SOME RISE BY SIN explores the search for meaning in a place where the stakes are highest and does so with unwavering focus. At 75, Caputo remains a master of his craft.” — Booklist, starred review

THE BOOK OF SUMMER by Michelle Gable
New York Times bestselling author Gable’s latest novel unravels the power and secrets of Cliff House—a Nantucket compound that will collapse into the sea due to erosion— as told through the voices of Ruby Packard, a bright-eyed and idealistic newlywed on the eve of WWII, the home’s definitive guestbook, and Ruby’s grown daughter, Bess Codman. “A sure bet for women’s-fiction fans of Elin Hilderbrand and Nantucket novels.” — Booklist

A DOG’S WAY HOME by W. Bruce Cameron
The New York Times best-selling author of A DOG’S PURPOSE (now a movie) returns with adorable pit bull puppy Bella, who treks 400 miles back to Lucas Ray after having to be fostered out. “Ever popular with dog lovers, Cameron presents another winning tale of an extraordinary human-canine companionship full of tug-at-the-heartstrings adventure.” — Booklist readmoreremove

BORNE by Jeff VanderMeer
One of Publishers Weekly‘s Most Anticipated Books of Spring 2017 with THREE starred reviews! “VanderMeer, author of the acclaimed Southern Reach trilogy, has made a career out of eluding genre classifications, and with BORNE he essentially invents a new one. Reading like a dispatch from a world lodged somewhere between science fiction, myth, and a video game, the textures of BORNE shift as freely as those of the titular whatsit.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

COME SUNDOWN by Nora Roberts
When Mustang-tough Bodine Longbow’s long-missing aunt returns to the family ranch in Montana 25 years later with a fantastical story of abduction and abuse, Bodine realizes that something really bad is lurking in the mountains. “With its take-no-guff heroine, who understands the importance of family and friends, and a compelling plot peppered with domestic details and composed of equal measures of spine-tingling suspense and sexy romance, this is quintessential Roberts.” — Booklist

THE FACT OF A BODY: A Murder and a Memoir by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich
“In this haunting hybrid of memoir and true crime account, Marzano-Lesnevich describes how a law school internship set her on a collision course with Ricky Langley, a pedophile and murderer, forcing her to contend with past trauma and preexisting prejudice. Her writing is remarkably evocative and taut with suspense, with a level of nuance that sets this effort apart from other true crime accounts.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

THE YID by Paul Goldberg
Two starred reviews! “In this fantastical (and fantastic) debut novel by reporter and writer Goldberg, who immigrated to the United States from the USSR in 1973, a troupe of unlikely Soviet characters assembles with a single objective…to do in Stalin before his henchmen unleash the pogrom. Highly recommended for readers with a grasp of history who enjoy imaginative deviations from what we think we know as historical truth.” — Library Journal, starred review

Belated #BookBday (4/15/14 Edition)

We're a day late in wishing these books a Happy #BookBday, but it's only to keep the party going!

THE OTHER STORY by Tatiana de Rosnay
The internationally bestselling author of SARAH'S KEY returns with another absorbing novel about a young writer who, while digging into his family’s deeply buried secrets, finds the key to his future. A May 2014 Indie Next selection!
“...de Rosnay's fans and readers who enjoy contemporary interior novels will not be disappointed.” — Library Journal
 

A PARIS APARTMENT by Michelle Gable
An antique furniture appraiser finds a treasure trove—and secrets of its courtesan owner—in a Paris apartment in the ninth arrondissement. “With its well-developed, memorable characters and the author's skillful transitioning between story lines...this stunning and fascinating debut will capture the interest of a wide audience but particularly those interested in stories about women behind famous men like Melanie Benjamin's THE AVIATOR'S WIFE or Nancy Horan's UNDER THE WIDE AND STARRY SKY. Highly recommended.” — Library Journal, starred review

THE SEA HOUSE by Elisabeth Gifford
Set in Scotland's remote Outer Hebrides, THE SEA HOUSE is a beguiling tale of love and loss, a meditation on motherhood, and how we find our identity through the stories we tell. “Hints of magic abound in Gifford’s haunting fiction debut, which follows two story lines... Gifford has an ability to bring depth to her characters, whether they live in the 19th century or the 20th, and this helps hold together her sweeping tale.” — Publishers Weekly

'TIL THE WELL RUNS DRY by Lauren Francis-Sharma
This buzzed about debut novel is a glorious and moving multi-generational, multicultural saga that begins in the 1940s and sweeps through the 1960s in Trinidad and the United States. “Francis-Sharma’s spellbinding, intimately detailed, psychologically lush, and suspenseful tale of racial and sexual trauma, hard work, love, and family devotion makes personal the injustice people endured in the years leading up to the civil rights movement in both multicultural Trinidad and segregated America.” — Booklist, starred review
