THE GIRL HE USED TO KNOW by Tracey Garvis Graves

“Smart, lovely, yet socially awkward Annika avoids the tumult of the crowd, preferring the kind of quiet discipline she finds in chess. That’s how she meets outgoing Jonathan, beating him at his first game when he joins the chess club. Soon they are planning their lives together, but they are separated by tragedy and meet again years later. She’s a librarian (of course), he’s a divorced Wall Street genius, and maybe their love has withstood what they’ve endured. Big promo, much love; from the New York Times best-selling author of ONE THE ISLAND.”–Library Journal, Pre-Pub Alert

TRUST EXERCISE by Susan Choi

Three starred reviews!

“[T]he writing (exquisite) and the observations (cuttingly accurate) make Choi’s latest both wrenching and one-of-a-kind. Never sentimental; always thrillingly alive.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Fiercely intelligent, impeccably written, and observed with searing insight, this novel is destined to be a classic.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

Welcome to #PubDay (1/29/19)

WWII historical fiction, sexy cowboys, and eerily relevant dark sci-fi… Welcome to #pubday!

AT THE WOLF’S TABLE by Rosella Postorino
“Based on actual events, Italian author Postorino’s first novel published here chronicles the experiences of 26-year-old Rosa Sauer during World War II. With nine other women, Rosa is conscripted by the SS to taste-test food being served to the Führer at his Eastern Front military headquarters, the Wolf Lair’s, lest he be poisoned. As the war wears on, the women divide into diehard Hitler loyalists and those, like Rosa, who begin to doubt the Nazi enterprise. And that leads to trouble.”–Library Journal, Pre-Pub Alert
