FEAR OF DYING by Erica Jong
The iconic, bestselling author delivers the sequel to her groundbreaking novel, FEAR OF FLYING. “Flashy, flip, and hilarious as well as smart and wise… Jong has created such an extraordinary direct and intimate narrative voice, one almost forgets that this bravura performance is a work of fiction. Jong is a beacon for several generations of readers, and her first novel in more than a decade will garner much excitement.”Booklist, starred review

THE PERFECT COMEBACK OF CAROLINE JACOBS by Matthew Dicks
When Caroline Jacobs decides to finally assert herself—by aiming a four-letter word at the PTO president—she realizes that the root of her outburst could be traced back to a public betrayal by her best friend, Emily, during high school. Together with her daughter, Caroline decides to go back to her home town and tell off her childhood friend…some twenty-five years later. “Dicks’s fourth novel is for anyone who has wished they’d stood up for themselves or delivered that perfect comeback at just the right time.” — Library Journal

LUXE by Ashley Antoinette
The bestselling urban-lit author presents a fast-moving tale about Bleu Montclair, a young woman on scholarship at UCLA who escapes the hard streets of Flint, Michigan, but finds new temptations on the west coast. “Antoinette will have readers hooked on this edgy, twisting tale of innocence lost.” — Booklist

OBSESSION FALLS by Christina Dodd
Dodd’s second novel of romantic suspense (after VIRTUE FALLS) has two starred reviews, including this one from Library Journal: “Stunning description, startling violence, nonstop action, and an inventive plot drive this riveting Native American lore-infused page-turner. With a gritty, resourceful heroine, a whip-smart, determined hero, and an equally dazzling miscreant, this one is impossible to put down. A remarkable, mesmerizing series.”
