Thriller Thursday (2/26/15 Edition)

We’ve got a LibraryReads pick and two psychological thrillers this #ThrillerThursday:

A MURDER OF MAGPIESlibraryreads logo square by Judith Flanders
A February 2015 LibraryReads pick! “Social historian Flanders makes her fiction debut with an amusing mystery set in the eccentric world of British book publishing… The array of delightful and believable characters, as well as a neat turn at the end, will leave readers well satisfied and anticipating the next installment.”
Publishers Weekly

THE LIFE I LEFT BEHIND by Colette McBeth
From the author of PRECIOUS THING (a March 2014 LibraryReads pick), comes another “…multifaceted portrayal of obsession, loyalty, and control. Melody’s reawakening and Eve’s regrets and triumphs will hook readers quickly, especially fans of female-centered psychological suspense novels like those by S. J. Watson, Lisa Unger, and Samantha Hayes.” – Booklist readmoreremove
