JUST LIKE HOME BY SARAH GAILEY

2 starred reviews, a LibraryReads hall-of-famer, and an Indie Next pick!

“Gailey’s newest gothic novel is painfully suspenseful and richly dark, their rushing, intoxicating writing in peak form…It’s a must-read for all gothic horror fans.”–Booklist, starred review

“The counterintuitive choice to have flashbacks recounted in present tense, while using past tense for present-day events, along with ominous foreshadowing… helps to create an unsettling atmosphere.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

THINGS WE DO IN THE DARK BY JENNIFER HILLIER

A LibraryReads hall-of-famer!

“Readers of Megan Goldin and Lisa Jewell will enjoy this thrilling take on a character reinventing herself but unable to run away from the past. Hillier is a must-read for the mystery genre.”–Library Journal

WAKE OF WAR BY ZAC TOPPING

“Topping, a U.S. Army veteran, pays attention to moral issues while taking care not to overly demonize either side, but it’s the heroic characters and meticulously rendered battle scenes that make this a standout. This is a must for fans of the genre.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
