The Floating Feldmans

Friedland’s well-executed and smartly structured novel features chapters from each character’s point of view. The simple but clever premise lets the author explore the complicated tensions of family relationships in a compressed and directed way. Narcissistic and sometimes unlikable protagonists can be hard to sympathize with, but there is dry humor and a certain sweetness as well.


In the Dark

This slow-burning procedural builds with tension as the narrative moves through several cunning twists, offering fans a pleasing follow-up to the first book in the series, Close to Home.

The Familiars

A relatable first-person narrator helps make the history of this thoroughly researched novel feel more approachable. A solid addition to all fiction collections, with teen appeal. [See Prepub Alert, 8/20/18.]

Sail Away

Coincidences abound in this light comic novel by a British character actress and author (Not Quite Nice), featuring two middle-aged women who find friendship and unravel a mystery, with a supporting cast of mildly eccentric fellow travelers.

Little Disasters

Readers of literary fiction will be intrigued.

Lady in Waiting

While the historical aspects are at times thin and unconvincing, this slow-paced Victorian-era romance will please readers with its gradual relationship development, satisfying declaration, and love scenes.

The Sleeping Beauty Bride

The temperate courtship between Nate and Noelia takes a backseat to the mystery surrounding Sleeping Beauty's accident and the ghost that haunts her hospital room. This is the second installment in this series (after The Bride's Curse) of lighthearted paranormal romances that center on Wedding Bliss and its staff. Readers should begin with the first book.

Girl Unknown

Two competing unreliable narrators create an unsettling, intense atmosphere in this domestic thriller. Though the foreshadowing can feel heavy-handed at times, Perry (The Innocent Sleep) delivers a twist ending that will make readers want to start again from the beginning.
