Happy #BookBday (5/24/16 Edition)

Oh what a lovely day for a #BookBday!

THE WEEKENDERS by Mary Kay Andrews
A June 2016 Indie Next pick! Riley Griggs’s island home on Belle Isle, NC is being foreclosed, and to make matters worse, her husband has vanished. She turns to her island friends for help and support, but each of them has their own secrets and the clock is ticking as the mystery deepens. “Andrews’ novels are the epitome of relaxing yet involving summer reads, and her latest is no exception.” — Booklist

THE CHILDREN by Ann Leary
“Leary writes about nutty, pedigreed New Englanders in this noirish comedy in which financial wrangling and emotional secrets are kept under wraps within a well-born Connecticut family until the arrival of an interloper from west of the Rockies. In this deeply satisfying novel about how unknowable people can be, intrigue builds with glass shards of dark humor toward an ending that is far from comic.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

THE 100 YEAR MIRACLE by Ashley Ream
Once a century, for only six days, the bay around a small Washington island glows like a water-bound aurora. Dr. Rachel Bell, a scientist studying The 100 Year Miracle and the tiny sea creatures that create it, knows a secret about the phenomenon: it may contain a power that could save Rachel’s own life (and change the world). A thriller with a “vivid setting, credible science, and flashes of dry wit.” — Kirkus Reviews

PEOPLE WHO KNEW ME by Kim Hooper
A fresh, suspenseful novel about a woman who fakes her death in the wake of 9/11 and reinvents herself in California. “Warmly recommended for women’s fiction fans.” — Library Journal

THE GALLERY OF LOST SPECIES by Nina Berkhout
A powerful debut novel about a young woman’s complicated relationship with her older sister who is always just barely out of reach. “This quiet debut is an admirable portrait of a young woman searching for the lost and the mythic.” — Publishers Weekly
