Eloquence of the Sardine: Extraordinary Encounters Beneath the Sea

For people who love the aquatic world and those who aspire to.

Shoulder Season

Spanning decades and ranging from the Midwest to California, Clancy’s second novel (after The Second House) is an elegiac ode to a place that might feel at once familiar and lost to time. Uneven pacing causes some scenes to fly by too quickly, and the denouement feels like a reading marathon, but fans of J. Ryan Stradal and Jami Attenberg will root anyway for Sherri to come out on top.

The Hitler Years: Triumph, 1933–1939

McDonough largely succeeds in writing a nuanced overview of the early days of Nazi Germany and creating a work that will bridge the divide between popular and academic audiences. It will pair well with the second volume, The Hitler Years: Disaster, 1940–1945.

The Therapist

Paris’s fifth novel (after The Dilemma) is not on the same level as her great debut, Behind Closed Doors. Alice is overeager, insipid, and immature; she makes terrible decisions and flails willy-nilly throughout the story. Supporting characters are not fleshed out nor likable, making it hard to become invested. The big reveal is unconvincing, and the killer’s backstory isn’t particularly believable. Only for diehard Paris fans.
