Happy #BookBday to these big new releases!

SHELTER IN PLACE by Nora Roberts
A June 2018 Indie Next pick and a Publishers Weekly’s Spring 2018 Literary Fiction pick! “Roberts’ latest polished novel delivers all the literary touchstones her fans have come to expect, including high-stakes suspense, a generous dollop of romance, a thoughtful exploration of the strong bonds of family and friendship that women create for themselves, and, of course, some HGTV fixer-upper moments. As a significant bonus, the book’s chilling, brutal opening scenes should be required reading for any politician waffling on the issue of gun control.” — Booklist

THE SUMMER I MET JACK by Michelle Gable
Also available in audio
The New York Times bestselling author imagines the affair between JFK and Alicia Corning Clark — and the child they may have had. “Gable seamlessly weaves this modern love story with history, ensuring romantic tension that doesn’t end with the acceleration of Jack’s career. Based on real events, this compassionate and intelligent blend of Adriana Trigiani’s ALL THE STARS IN THE HEAVENS and Bill Dedman and Paul Clark Newell Jr.’s EMPTY MANSIONS offers massive cross-genre appeal.” — Library Journal, starred review

SO CLOSE TO BEING THE SH*T, Y’ALL DON’T EVEN KNOW by Retta
Also available in audio
In her hilarious book of essays, Parks and Recreation and Good Girls star Retta shares the stories that led to her success in Hollywood. “Whether recalling her early years doing stand-up on the college circuit, expounding on the ways TV shows reflect us, or fangirling hard for the musical Hamilton, comedian and actor Retta spins entertaining tales and hilarious phrases. As books like this one go, hers is as honest, funny, and fun to read as they come.” — Booklist readmoreremove
