NEVER LET YOU GO by Chevy Stevens
In the new novel from the LibraryReads author of THOSE GIRLS, Lindsey Nash escaped an abusive marriage and has successfully started her life over with her daughter—or so she thought. “Gripping… The difficulty of reading this book as a survivor must be emphasized; those of us who’ve endured domestic violence will recognize our lasting terrors and looking-over-our-shoulder habits in these pages and in this woman, as Stevens’ portrayal is spot-on. At the same time, survivors will want to pass the book on to everyone who ever asked them why they didn’t just leave. A must for public libraries.” — Booklist

NetGalleyLogoAvailable on NetGalley. To be pre-approved for an e-galley, please email library@macmillanusa.com with the subject “Never Let You Go.”*

EDGAR AND LUCY by Victor Lodato
Two starred reviews for this second novel from the author of the award-winning MATHILDA SAVITCH, about the complicated love a mother has for her unusual child and vice versa, and their drive to create family wherever they can find it. “Through numerous changing viewpoints, the truth is gradually revealed, creating suspense and rewarding readers with unexpected parallels and touching connections. Lodato’s remarkable novel traces a broken family’s spiritual journey toward healing in moving, magical prose.” — Booklist, starred review

A TWIST OF THE KNIFE by Becky Masterman
When ex-FBI agent Brigid Quinn is contacted by former colleague Laura Coleman to help exonerate Marcus Creighton, a death row inmate in Florida, Brigid agrees to help, especially since the case is the perfect distraction from her complicated family relationships. “Edgar-finalist Masterman presents a compassionate, clear-eyed depiction of the painful foibles of human nature in her chilling, twist-filled third thriller featuring retired FBI agent Brigid Quinn. A compelling, complex lead, Brigid has no problem skirting the straight and narrow in her quest for justice.”
Publishers Weekly

ALMOST MISSED YOU by Jessica Strawser

Sneak Peek: April 2016 Indie Next List

THE CHARM BRACELET by Viola Shipman
Through an heirloom charm bracelet three women will rediscover the importance of family, love, faith, friends, fun and a passion for living as the magic of each charm changes their lives. “Shipman’s charming story of finding peace in oneself, listening to your heart, and remembering all those who came before you will be welcomed by fans of Cecelia Ahern and Debbie Macomber.” — Library Journal

LUST & WONDER by Augusten Burroughs
“Augusten Burroughs is back! Longtime fans of the memoirist are going to be over the moon with this new work and with how the fearlessly candid author, most famously of RUNNING WITH SCISSORS, manages to reveal still more of himself. In an era of tedious oversharing, the memoirist who wrote two of the genre’s defining titles reminds us yet again why he is an unstoppable force.” — Booklist, starred review

SHELTER by Jung Yun
Yun’s intense debut novel weaves a bloody mystery with domestic drama into a layered portrait of race, class, money, marriage and more. “Like Celeste Ng’s superlauded best seller, EVERYTHING YOU NEVER TOLD ME, also about a dysfunctional mixed-race family’s tragedy, this work should find itself on best-of lists, among major award nominations, and in eager readers’ hands everywhere.” — Library Journal, starred review readmoreremove
