For Your Consideration… November LibraryReads suggestions

Friends, we know your "To Read" list is long and piles are high. We also know that the deadline to nominate titles for November's LibraryReads list is only two weeks away (Oct. 1). If you'll indulge us, we'd like to help you navigate those piles by sharing some of our favorite November books for your nomination consideration: 

THROUGH THE EVIL DAYS by Julia Spencer-Fleming
This starred Booklist review says it all: "This novel, the eighth starring Clare Fergusson and Russ van Alstyne, is among the best in the series, combining steady action with complex, sympathetic characters and an immersive setting. Readers seeking tales of city crime reaching small towns will love the well-crafted setting and story but shouldn’t expect a cozy; there’s plenty of grit here.”

Update: THROUGH THE EVIL DAYS is a December Indie Next selection! 
WHERE THE MOON ISN'T by Nathan Filer

Recently named a November Indie Next selection, Nathan Filer's debut novel about two brothers—one who goes missing and the other who doesn't quite come back—is a “deeply affecting and insightful in its account of mental illness" (Booklist), "A haunting story about how to mourn when the source of your grief will never go away” (Kirkus Reviews), and "should prove catnip to book group participants (especially those who loved Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time)" (Library Journal, starred review)

FRACTURES by Lamar Herrin

A hydrofracking controversy unearths a family's divisive passions and demons when a beleaguered patriarch must decide the fate of his land and children in this enveloping family drama. "Herrin has managed to transform the high profile, politically divisive issue of fracking into a thoroughly human, moving family drama…. Beautifully crafted.” – Kirkus Reviews (click to read our full article on FRACTURES)

 by Charles Finch
“The upper-class amateur sleuth, an endangered species even in historical mysteries, is very much alive in Charles Finch’s charming Victorian whodunits.” —The New York Times Book Review. In the seventh book of Finch’s bestselling Victorian mystery series, a case of mistaken identity has Charles Lenox playing for his highest stakes yet: the safety of Queen Victoria herself.
