THE MAIDENS by Alex Michaelides
ISBN 9781250304452, on sale 6/15/21
Download on Edelweiss or NetGalley

“A blend of psychological mystery and gothic thriller puts a psychotherapist in pursuit of a serial killer on the campus of Cambridge University… With its ambience of ritualistic murders, ancient myths, and the venerable college, the story is a gothic thriller despite its contemporary setting.”–Kirkus Reviews

ONE LAST STOP by Casey McQuiston
ISBN 9781250244499, on sale 6/1/21
Download on Edelweiss or NetGalley

“McQuiston’s joyful sophomore romp mixes all the elements that made RED, WHITE & ROYAL BLUE so outstanding—quirky characters, coming-of-age confusion, laugh-out-loud narration, and hilarious pop-cultural references—into something totally its own… With all the fun and camp of a drag show (of which this novel features more than one) but grounded in the tenderness of first love, this time-slip rom-com is an absolute delight. McQuiston brings the goods.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

ONE TWO THREE by Laurie Frankel
ISBN 9781250236777, on sale 6/8/21
Download on Edelweiss or NetGalley

“In a town about to be ravaged for a second time by an evil chemical company, teenage triplets fight the power… Clever, charming, and always on message.”–Kirkus Reviews

SOMEBODY’S DAUGHTER: A Memoir by Ashley C. Ford
ISBN 9781250305978, on sale 6/1/21
Download on Edelweiss or NetGalley

“Ford creates fully three-dimensional portraits of her mother, grandmother, and other key players, using a child’s-eye view to show us their failings and the calculations, negotiations, and survival tactics she developed in response to them. Sure to be one of the best memoirs of 2021.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

PALACE OF THE DROWNED by Christine Mangan
ISBN 9781250788429, on sale 6/1/21
Download on Edelweiss or NetGalley

“Following Mangan’s nationally best-selling TANGERINE, PALACE OF THE DROWNED stars flailing British novelist Frankie Croy, staying in a friend’s vacant Venice palazzo in 1966 as she struggles to regain her early writing promise and not quite trustful of a fan who comes her way.”–Library Journal, Pre-Pub Alert

THE HUSBANDS by Chandler Baker
ISBN 9781250319517, on sale 6/29/21
Download on Edelweiss or NetGalley

From the NYT bestselling author of WHISPER NETWORK comes a novel that asks: to what lengths will a woman go for a little more help from her husband? Smart, sharp, and timely, this novel imagines a world where the burden of the “second shift” is equally shared – and what it might take to get there.

THE WITNESS FOR THE DEAD by Katherine Addison
ISBN 9780765387424, on sale 6/22/21
Download on Edelweiss or NetGalley

“The follow-up to the acclaimed THE GOBLIN EMPEROR brings back a favorite character and expands the elaborate world Addison has created. Fans of the first book—and new readers—will find this novel delightful and immersive.”–Library Journal, starred review

DEAD BY DAWN by Paul Doiron
ISBN 9781250235107, on sale 6/29/21
Download on Edelweiss or NetGalley

“Barry-winning, Edgar-nominated Doiron doesn’t make it easy for his longtime protagonist, Maine game warden Mike Bowditch, who drives his jeep straight into an ice-cloaked river when he’s ambushed by folks who clearly want him dead. Now he must get out from under the ice and survive a night in the woods with armed-to-the-teeth villains in hot pursuit.”–Library Journal, Pre-Pub Alert

EVERYONE KNOWS YOUR MOTHER IS A WITCH by Rivka Galchen
ISBN 9780374280468, on sale 6/8/21
Download on Edelweiss

“A 17th-century German witch hunt—really… There is so much in this novel to consider—the degree to which we make monsters of one another, the way that old age can make of femininity an apparently terrifying, otherworldly thing—but it is also, at every step along the way, an entirely delicious book. Dazzling in its humor, intelligence, and the richness of its created world.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

RIDGELINE by Michael Punke
ISBN 9781250310460, on sale 6/1/21
Download on Edelweiss or NetGalley

“Punke (THE REVENANT) again brings the Old West to life in this engrossing account of the violence and horror of a Wyoming massacre that presaged the Battle of Little Big Horn… Punke makes the battle vivid, and draws deep characterizations of individuals on both sides, exploring Crazy Horse’s fear of impending change, U.S. soldiers’ indifference to fighting, and a captain’s lament of the breakdown of discipline and reason within the battalion’s leadership. This is historical fiction at its best.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

GIRL ONE by Sara Flannery Murphy
ISBN 9780374601744, on sale 6/1/21
Download on Edelweiss or NetGalley

“In her latest work of speculative fiction, the author of THE POSSESSIONS (2017) creates a world in which women can conceive without men.”–Kirkus Reviews
