BIG LIES IN A SMALL TOWN by Diane Chamberlain
“This rich novel from Chamberlain (THE SILENT SISTER) tracks artists whose lives intertwine after a mural is commissioned for a small town…Chamberlain’s depictions of creative beauty and perseverance across time and in the face of inevitable obstacles will keep readers turning the pages.”–Publishers Weekly
THE HOLLOWS by Jess Montgomery
“Skilled storyteller Montgomery takes up the issue of racial prejudice as it existed in that place and time in this historical mystery that shines with its strong and appealing female characters.”–Booklist
THE MITFORD SCANDAL: A Mitford Murders Mystery by Jessica Fellowes
“Louisa Cannon, still in the orbit of the inimitable Mitford sisters in 1928 London, finds herself caught in their mysteries for the third time—and longing to be reunited with her partner in sleuthing, Guy Sullivan of the CID…A richly detailed period piece whose implausible solution is outweighed by its deft weaving of historical fact and imagined intrigue.”–Kirkus Reviews
