Happy #bookbday!

Across the Sea by Gaute Heivoll

“Deeply affecting. . . . A striking and exquisitely detailed novel exploring the depths of compassion, cognizance, and mutual understanding amidst a household of adults and children who cannot always communicate in traditional ways.”―Publishers Weekly

“Humane and lovely; reminiscent of Paul Harding’s Tinkers in its sympathetic understanding of mental disability and the power of memory.”―Kirkus Reviews

“This is an intensely moving work, the characters drawn with such depth that when overwhelming tragedy strikes or the inexorable cruelty of time makes itself felt, grief is palpable. While bittersweet, this is primarily a story of kindness, of imperfect people who are good at heart making a safe place in an otherwise unsympathetic world for those less fortunate than themselves.”―Booklist

Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff

“Triumphant… The thrilling first section of interwoven timelines proceeds at a breakneck pace; later sections are more linear and tense with anticipation, leavened with witty footnotes. Through tragedy, betrayal, and victory, this glorious adventure thrills and satisfies with cold violence, terrifying monsters, roaring crowds, and bloody honor.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

Secrets in Death by J.D. Robb

“It is no secret that Robb’s Eve Dallas series continues to be one of the most popular brands in crime fiction. Add that to this installment’s perfectly executed plot, snappy pacing, and judicious sprinkling of dry humor, and you have a particularly enjoyable treat for loyal fans and curious new readers alike. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With an initial run of 750,000 copies and copious publicity, Robb’s new Eve Dallas title will be heavily requested.”–Booklist

“Robb continues to impress…”–Publishers Weekly

Sourdough by Robin Sloan

September 2017 LibraryReads selection!

“How many novels can boast an obstreperous sourdough starter as a key character? A delightful and heartfelt read.”—Library Journal

“Sloan’s comic but smart tone never flags, and Lois is an easy hero to root for.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Through narrative and email correspondence, Sloan captures contemporary work environments, current reality, and future trends . . . [Sourdough] offers much to savor.”—Publishers Weekly

The Woman Who Couldn’t Scream by Christina Dodd

“With the fourth wildly original addition to her Virtue Falls series, Dodd takes more than a few creative risks and then brilliantly succeeds in this sexy, compulsively readable tale of romantic suspense.”–Booklist

“Intriguing characters (including an especially horrifying villain), twin romances (Kateri and Stag’s prickly sparring as well as Merida and Benedict’s trust-challenged bond), and a complex plot that reveals itself with chilling precision keep the pages turning. VERDICT Tense, taut, and beautifully paced, this latest addition to Dodd’s series is another stunner; it will appeal to romance and suspense fans alike. Dodd (Because I’m Watching) lives in Washington State.”–Library Journal, starred review

“Don’t be surprised by the Eiffel Tower on the cover; sparkling British amateur sleuth Amory Ames has traveled with husband Milo to Paris in response to a disturbing letter from his childhood nanny. She works for celebrated parfumier Helios Belanger, whose new perfume is about to be released. And our sleuthing couple is quite sure it’s not the heady scent of the perfume that makes Belanger suddenly drop dead.

SECRETS IN DEATH by J.D. Robb
“Gossip reporter Larinda Mars has been murdered at a way-too-cool Manhattan nightspot called Du Vin, and Lt.

Now Eve has a lot of dirty secrets to sort through, and she’ll discover things she’d really rather not know. The latest in Robb’s “In Death” series, optioned for TV; with a national laydown on September 5.” — Library Journal, pre-pub alert
