This thriller Thursday we’re featuring a modern twist on Jane Eyre with some Southern charm, the next mystery in the heart-pounding Ellery Hathaway series, and a historical mystery inspired by a real-life murder.
THE WIFE UPSTAIRS by Rachel Hawkins
“In her adult debut, YA author Hawkins (ROYALS, 2018) twists together the suspense and storytelling of Jane Eyre with the atmosphere, tension, and odd characters of a Southern-gothic novel into a tale of a young woman trying to escape her past.”–Booklist
EVERY WAKING HOUR by Joanna Schaffhausen
“Tight plotting and sophisticated surprises fuel the rich storytelling. Schaffhausen layers much emotion into each tension-filled twist as she deepens Ellery and Reed’s characters. Readers will eagerly await their further adventures.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
THE MITFORD TRIAL: A Mitford Murders Mystery by Jessica Fellows
“Inspired by the larger-than-life Mitford family and a real-life murder, Fellowes delivers a ripping-good read. Rich in detail, it moves steadily to its sad ending, leaving Louisa in possession of dark secrets that she will carry for the rest of her life.”–Booklist
