Time’s Undoing

Head is the author of the “Charlie Mack Motown” mystery series featuring a Black, female, queer PI. Her new novel, based on true events, will please the author’s fans and readers who enjoy novels with strong women protagonists.

Prize Women

Lea explores important issues and does not shy away from some of the heartbreaking aspects of life in the 1920s and 1930s. Fans of her earlier novel The Metal Heart or of Juliet Grames’s The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna might enjoy this new and significant offering.

I Could Live Here Forever

Many readers will feel they can identify with this portrait of self-discovery, messy emotions, and challenging relationships. Fans of Halperin’s first novel will also enjoy this offering.

Defending Alice: A Novel of Love and Race in the Roaring Twenties

Fans of Stratton might appreciate this new offering from the author of crime novel Smack Goddess. Readers interested in Jazz Age history will value Stratton’s close observance of the Rhinelander case and the historically accurate snippets that he peppers throughout his text.

One Woman’s War: A Novel of the Real Miss Moneypenny

Fans of James Bond will definitely want to check out this novel. Readers of Ben MacIntyre’s Operation Mincemeat may also enjoy Wells’s take on this. This title features the usual cast, but due to its telling from the viewpoints of two charismatic women, it offers a fresh women-centric perspective not always found hand in hand with military themes.

The Sisters Sweet

This debut, by a graduate of the Iowa Writers Workshop, is a multilayered celebration of female independence in the arts during an era that often demanded feminine conventionality. It should appeal to readers fascinated by women-centric takes on the theatrical world and the United States of the early 20th century.

The Last Checkmate

Fans of World War II fiction with strong female leads, such as Sarah McCoy’s The Baker’s Daughter and Heather Morris’s The Tattooist of Auschwitz, will enjoy this story. The recurring theme of chess is also reminiscent of Walter Tevis’s The Queen’s Gambit.

Before the Crown

Lovers of historical fiction and romance, fans of The Crown, and readers seeking an undemanding introduction to the intricacies of the British monarchy will enjoy this timely novel. Harding has clearly done her research; while hers is a story mired in supposition, there are some factual touches included.
