“Crosley (THE CLASP) offers a witty and fantastical story of dating and experimental psychology in New York City.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
“The story is plenty engaging, but it’s Crosley’s analytical acumen and gift for the striking metaphor that really gives the book life. Thoughtfully and humanely acerbic.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“Miro’s debut has a fascinating magical system—it’s rooted in the ability to manipulate dead cells, in the human body or in the air—and satisfying moments of tense suspense and frightening monsters. The characters are convincing, and readers will be quickly drawn into the narrative.”–Booklist

“It’s hard to believe this is Byrne’s first novel: it’s so sure-handed, so cleverly written, so very difficult to put down…We can only hope there will be more Dez Limerick books to come.”–Booklist, starred review
“It’s a mixture of the best black op novels like a Brad Thor or Mark Greaney, with a hint of the TV show Leverage. Dez has a bright future ahead, and this one is a true keeper.”–Library Journal, starred review
“Schellman vividly evokes Jazz Age Manhattan as Vivian proves to be a most imaginative sleuth. Readers will eagerly await her return.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“A slow-burning literary tease that plumbs the heights and depths of young love, creative ambitions, friendship, and betrayal.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
THE KISS QUOTIENT meets LOVE POTION NO. 9 in the next sparkling romantic comedy by Lily Menon.
“The strength of Wesley’s novel lies in the likable, relatable characters, who share witty, well-crafted dialogue and sizzling chemistry; readers won’t want their story to end.”–Library Journal
“Ellie is wonderfully resourceful and divinely funny. Let’s hope this expertise-and-romance-filled series continues for a very long time.”–Booklist, starred review
“Weaver does a sensational job of evoking 1940 London and populates the story with endearing characters, none more so than Ellie, who’s gutsy, smart, and completely unwilling to be outmaneuvered or left behind when danger presents itself. Readers will hope to see a lot more of Ellie.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Schaitkin gives the goings-on great substance by digging into the complicated feelings brought on by motherhood and the judgments from others, all the while delineating the mothers’ utter joy, frustrations, and love for their children. This is a standout.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
