LJ’s Best Debuts Winter 2022

Library Journal thinks these Winter 2022 debuts should be on your radar!

OLGA DIES DREAMING by Xochitl Gonzalez
“Olga Acevedo is a wedding planner to New York’s rich and powerful, brother Pedro (‘Prieto’) serves their gentrifying Latinx neighborhood as congressman, and all’s well until the activist mother who deserted them crashes back into their lives. Ambitious and heartfelt.”–Library Journal

THE BALLERINAS by Rachel Kapelke-Dale
“Fourteen years after leaving her soloist spot at the Paris Opera Ballet to become a choreographer in St. Petersburg, Delphine is back creating a work in Paris, where her relationship with old friends Lindsay and Margaux remains thorny. Deliciously observed emotional tangles.”–Library Journal

“In Edwardian England, Baronet Robin Blyth is named the civil service liaison to a magical society he never knew existed and must join forces with Edwin, his crusty counterpart in the realm of magic, to battle a deadly plot. A neat mix of fantasy, history, and romance between Edwin and Robin.”–Library Journal

WILDCAT by Amelia Morris
“New mother and aspiring writer Leanne is increasingly uncertain of her direction in life and her putative best friend, but she’s thrilled to get to know distinguished author Maxine Hunter. An intimate and timely study of motherhood and women’s friendships.”–Library Journal

A FLICKER IN THE DARK by Stacy Willingham
“Baton Rouge psychologist Chloe Davis is anticipating her wedding when local teenage girls start vanishing, bringing back a childhood horror: Her father was convicted of killing six girls in their Louisiana town. A race-through-it read.”–Library Journal
