The Writing Retreat

Despite the abundance of well-worn tropes, this solid thriller should appeal to fans of Ruth Ware and J.P. Delaney.

The Friendship Breakup

Cathryn’s thought-provoking debut may be billed as a “mom-com,” but one need not be a mom to appreciate it. A sure bet for fans of Jennifer Weiner.

Death at Greenway

A story to remember and ponder. Will be popular with fans of Charles Todd and Kate Atkinson.


Recommended for all public libraries.

Hungry Hearts

This is a powerful volume that will be in demand, whether for specific contributors or the inspiration provided by the essays.

Nothing Like I Imagined

Created originally for Amazon Original Stories and free for Prime members, combined with its listen time of fewer than three hours, demand for this collection will be less than normal.

Kitchen Yarns: Notes of Life, Love, and Food

Recommended where food-based memoirs by authors such as Ruth Reichl, Calvin Trillin, and Laurie Colwin are popular, though the print version will be a better fit for those who want to cook from it rather than just enjoying the essays. ["This warm, humorous, touching, and wonderfully readable book will appeal to food lovers and fans of culinary biographies": LJ Winter 2018 starred review of the Norton hc.]


Recommended for fans of Atkinson, Tana French, and Emily St. John Mandel. ["With a fascinating cast of characters, careful plotting, and lyrical language in turns comical and tragic, Atkinson's complex story carefully unveils the outer demands and inner conflicts that war inflicts": LJ 6/15/18 starred review of the Little, Brown hc.]
