All the Old Knives by Olen Steinhauer
“After the rescue of a hijacked plane in Vienna fails spectacularly, leaving everyone on board dead, CIA types stationed in Vienna wonder if their agent on the case had been somehow compromised. Nine years later, two of the agents, former lovers Henry Pelham and Celia Harrison, who has left the agency, meet near Celia’s California home to reconsider the question—and eye each other warily. Steinhauer, a Dashiell Hammett Award winner and two-time Edgar Award finalist, is big enough to get a one-day laydown.”–Library Journal, Pre-Pub Alert
The Patriot Threat by Steve Berry
“When his former boss in the Justice Department asks him to track down a rogue North Korean possibly in possession of some hush-hush Treasury Department files, beloved Berry protagonist Cotton Malone finds himself chasing from Venice to Croatia in a tight 24 hours. The plot hinges on whether the 16th Amendment to the Constitution, which legalizes federal income tax, was properly ratified. Joining a new publisher with that nice little controversy, hugely best-selling author Berry gets red-carpet treatment, including a one-day laydown.”–Library Journal, Pre-Pub Alert
The Tragic Age by Stephen Metcalfe
“Metcalfe snares readers’ attention with rich, fantastic characters…A wonderful read that is hard to put down, THE TRAGIC AGE will continue to haunt readers long after the last page has been turned.” — VOYA magazine
Mad, Bad and Dangerous in Plaid by Suzanne Enoch
The next book in the deliciously sexy Scandalous Highlanders series from New York Times bestseller Suzanne Enoch
Bones & All by Camille DeAngelis
A haunting coming-of-age story about a young outcast as she sets out on a journey to find her long-lost father, who can tell her why she does the bad thing she does.
The Last Flight of Poxl West by Daniel Torday
“Elijah Goldstein’s devoted Uncle Poxl is a Jewish World War II fighter pilot and an overnight literary sensation. What more could a boy want? While Torday is more likely to be compared to Philip Roth or Michael Chabon than Gillian Flynn, his debut novel has two big things in common with Gone Girl-it’s a story told in two voices, and it’s almost impossible to discuss without revealing spoilers. The reversal that defines this novel arrives late and changes the meaning of everything that’s come before, but that’s all you’ll hear about it here.”–Kirkus, starred review
A Fireproof Home for the Bride by Amy Sceibe
“When her fiancé behaves shockingly, Emmeline (“Emmy”) Nelson kicks against her strict Lutheran upbringing in late 1950s Minnesota, getting a newspaper job and falling for a warm and charming Catholic boy. Then she learns that the Ku Klux Klan is active in the area—and that her family is involved. An in-house favorite that’s called part Annie Proulx and part Kent Haruf.”–Library Journal, Pre-Pub Alert
Start Me Up by Nicole Michaels
Sparks fly between a sexy mechanic and a DIY loving single mom in the first book in this sexy contemporary romance series
Thank you for voting Sarah Addison Allen’s latest, FIRST FROST, onto the January 2015 LibraryReads list!
This is Addison Allen’s SECOND appearance on the LibraryReads list — LOST LAKE debuted on the January 2014 list.
“Thomas Wolfe was wrong. You can go home again, and in returning to the Waverley household, the winsomely wise Allen demonstrates that sometimes it’s necessary to embrace the magic to find out what’s real in life and in one’s own heart.”–Booklist, starred review
“Allen has written a beautiful, lyrical story, complete with genuine characters whose depth reflects Allen’s skill as a writer. Allen’s fans will be eagerly awaiting her next.”–Publishers Weekly
