That Night in the Library by Eva Jurczyk (Poisoned Pen)

Appeared on the June 2024 LibraryReads list

“A group of students gather for a party in the library's basement the night before graduation. Things quickly go awry, and bodies start piling up. There are seven main characters and multiple POVs, but readers will be able to keep up thanks to Jurczyk’s witty writing. It’s a bonus to get an inside look at a rare books library.”—Danielle Hansard, Westland Public Library, MI

Dirty Laundry by Disha Bose (Ballantine)

Appeared on the April 2023 LibraryReads list

“Ciara is a perfect mom and influencer who knows what to do, buy, and promote in her small Irish town. Ciara also is an irresponsible woman who plays friends against each other, eats up and spits out all the town husbands, and seals her own fate with her reprehensible behavior. An Orient Express-like cast shines in this twisty domestic thriller about secrets and lies.”—Donna Ballard, East Meadow Public Library, East Meadow, NY

Daisy Darker by Alice Feeney (Flatiron)

Appeared on the August 2022 LibraryReads list

Deftly told, this nod to Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None mixes suspense and secrets with heartbreaking and poignant observations about family and childhood.”—Jennifer Ohzourk, West Des Moines Public Library, West Des Moines, IA
