When No One Is Watching by Alyssa Cole (Morrow; LJ starred review)
Appeared on the September 2020 LibraryReads list

“The gentrification of her beloved Brooklyn neighborhood has longtime resident Sydney Green mourning what’s lost. Striking up an uneasy alliance with new neighbor Theo, she starts research for a walking tour to highlight the area’s rich history and diversity but quickly comes to realize that something far more sinister is going on. A sense of mounting dread and some startling twists and turns will keep readers turning the pages. Where HAVE all those old neighbors gone?”—Beth Mills, New Rochelle Public Library, NY


Find Her by Lisa Gardner (Dutton; LJ starred review)
Appeared on the February 2019 LibraryReads list

“WOW. Find Her is intense. Those initial pages are a testament to the strength of Lisa Gardner’s writing. I had to know what was going to happen! At times it was so bleak and dark, and yet I still had to know what Flora and Stacy were going to be doing. A very suspenseful, twisty, unpredictable page-turner.”—Allie Williams, Parnell Memorial Library, Montevallo, AL


Promise Not To Tell by Jayne Ann Krentz (Berkley)
Appeared on the January 2018 LibraryReads list

“Virginia owns a successful art gallery in Seattle now, but she has had to overcome many demons from her childhood in a cult. When one of her artists commits suicide, leaving her a mysterious message, she suspects the cult leader may have resurfaced.”—Kelly Rohde, Mead Public Library, Sheboygan, WI


Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson (Morrow)
Appeared on the January 2017 LibraryReads list

“Kate Priddy is moving to Boston to swap apartments with her cousin. Haunted by an abusive ex, she wants to leave behind her previous life. But when her neighbor Audrey Marshall is murdered, Kate is drawn into a web of fear even darker than her past. Varying points of view add new perspectives to the narrative as the book goes on; the mystery of what really happened to Audrey is just a part of the intrigue as we delve into the minds of imperfect, broken people. As a fan of Swanson’s previous work, I was not disappointed.“—Cari Dubiel, Twinsburg Public Library, OH
