Nightwork, by Nora Roberts (St. Martin’s), is the top holds title of the week (5/23/22). LibraryReads and Library Journal offer read-alikes for patrons waiting to read this buzziest book.

A thief since childhood, when he scrambled to support a mother dying of cancer, the ever-honorable Harry Booth feels he can’t follow up his feelings for Miranda Emerson—although maybe there’s hope if he disentangles himself from the Nightwork he’s been trapped into doing for bad-guy Carter LaPorte. This latest from Roberts has a million-copy first printing.—Barbara Hoffert, “Contemporary Pop Fiction Previews, May 2022, Pt. 3 | Prepub Alert” 

My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing (Berkley)

Appeared on the March 2019 LibraryReads list

“An incredible, dark, twisty psychological thriller with two of the most seemingly normal but disturbingly depraved people you will read about in fiction. This brilliant debut needs to be at the top of your must-read list. For readers who like taut suspense and works by Gillian Flynn, B.A. Paris, and Mary Kubica.”—Rachel Reeves, Weatherford Public Library, Weatherford, TX

The Passenger by Lisa Lutz (S. & S.)

Appeared on the March 2016 LibraryReads list

“This is a compulsively readable story of a young woman who has to keep switching identities and stay on the run. Is she a reliable narrator or not? What was the original event that sent her on the run? There is a lot of action and suspense as she tries to survive and evade the law while trying to keep her moral center intact. Unlike Lutz’s Spellman series, this reads more like a Charles Portis road novel, though considerably more serious and dangerous. Highly recommended.” —Beth DeGeer, Bartlesville Public Library, Bartlesville, OH
