THE SECOND HOME by Christina Clancy

“With nostalgia as thick as the scent of coconut-scented sunscreen, THE SECOND HOME explores the consequences of emotional decisions and the strength needed to set things right.”–Booklist, starred review

THE DILEMMA by B.A. Paris

“Another women’s chiller, Paris’s THE DILEMMA features a long-married couple hosting a lavish party to compensate for their long-ago modest wedding, though secrets they both hold could change everything.”–Library Journal, Pre-Pub Alert

THE HALF SISTER by Sandie Jones

“Following THE OTHER WOMAN, a New York Times best seller and Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club pick, Jones purveys a plotline that’s rife this year: hug-close sisters Kate and Lauren are enjoying their weekly lunch when a stranger named Jess arrives, claiming to be their half-sister. The difference: they’re not into embracing her (this is a thriller, after all), instead swiftly uncovering secrets and avenging the ruin of their illusions.”–Library Journal, Pre-Pub Alert

THE MOUNTAINS WILD by Sarah Stewart Taylor

“And in ‘Sweeney St. George’ author Taylor’s THE MOUNTAINS WILD, Maggie D’Arcy, who decided to become a detective after weeks spent in Ireland helping the Gardaí hunt for her missing cousin Erin, returns decades later when Erin’s scarf is finally found.”–Library Journal, Pre-Pub Alert

THE ORDER OF THE PURE MOON REFLECTED IN WATER by Zen Cho

“This quirky sketch of the Tang Dynasty offers more mischief than martial arts or magic, which will disappoint readers hoping for action, but fans of found family narratives will enjoy the band-of-brothers dynamic of the bandits.”–Publishers Weekly

THE FINDERS by Jeffrey B. Burton

“A wonder of a thriller, crammed to bursting with everything genre fans are pining for: fascinating characters, sparky dialogue, wry humor, sweaty-palm tension—all in a literate narrative that is a joy to follow.”–Booklist, starred review

I HOLD A WOLF BY THE EARS: Stories by Laura van den Berg

“Van den Berg maintains an unsettling tone throughout these darkly imagined tales. This collection shows the author at her best.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

THE DRAGONS, THE GIANT, THE WOMEN: A Memoir by Wayétu Moore

“It reads like fiction in the sense that the author’s inhabiting of her mother’s character is absolute. Nonfiction purists might balk at this liberty, but the resulting intimacy is profound. Here and throughout, Moore’s control of language is impressive. Formally dazzling yet coolly reflective prose makes for a refined memoir.”–Kirkus Reviews

WE CAME HERE TO SHINE by Susie Orman Schnall

Set during the iconic 1939 New York World’s Fair, two intrepid young women—an aspiring journalist and a down-on-her-luck actress—form an unlikely friendship as they navigate a world of endless possibility, stand down adversity, and find out what they are truly made of during the glorious summer of spectacle and opportunity…
