The Quiet Boy

In 2008, a cheerful ambulance-chasing lawyer named Jay Shenk...
“On a remote peninsula in Scotland sits Caldonbrae Hall, exceedingly elite girls’ boarding school for Britain’s most powerful and wealthy, plus a few others. When Rose enters this gothic castle, she has no idea what awaits her. Caldonbrae of the 1990s seems stuck firmly in the previous century, with its ancient traditions closely guarded. As Rose slowly learns the traditions and secrets of the school, she becomes more appalled and more trapped in its powerful web. As the classics teacher, Rose focuses her lessons on the women and goddesses of ancient Greece, and some of her students begin to crave these stories of strong women, and to wonder about the possibility of a life beyond that prescribed by Caldonbrae Hall. A sort of Jane Eyre meets Mean Girls, this captivating novel carries us into an eerie institution where all are imprisoned in one way or another with little hope of escape.”Nancy, Raven Book Store

“Falling is the literary thriller that gets your heart racing and causes you to be both contemplative and terrified at the same time. TJ Newman, a former indie bookseller and a former flight attendant, knows how to tell a story. She writes with a remarkable turn of phrase and with insider knowledge of what can happen in an airplane. It's always a great day when an indie bookseller publishes a book. It's an extremely great day when the book is a fantastic page-turner.”Cindy, Changing Hands
We Begin at the End
“We Begin at the End is dramatic storytelling at its best, full of layers of intrigue and complex personalities set around the murder of the book’s most vulnerable character. The stoical, 13-year-old Duchess Day Radley takes center stage, and her heartbreaking life unleashes a hero within: self-proclaimed outlaw, bold and courageous, though to her peril not always wise beyond her years. Chris Whitaker has created a character for the ages and an extraordinary reading experience. By turns amusing, frightening, and exhilarating.”Robin Sung, Porter Square Books

“Weiden’s book is a thriller with an important social and political message. Following a Lakota ‘enforcer’ who enacts extrajudicial punishment to fill the gaps in the legal system, Winter Counts is a twisty new addition to the growing Indigenous literature canon. While some of the action may fall into somewhat predictable territory, Weiden’s exploration of the injustices of reservation life are vital.”Ashley Baeckmann, Briars & Brambles Books

If you enjoyed The Silence of the Lambs, then you’ll love The Maidens.
“Intensely dark, mysterious, and intelligent, The Maidens is reminiscent of Thomas Harris’ The Silence of the Lambs. The charming and brilliant Edward Fosca provides ample moments of tension in this game of cat and mouse. To top it off, the use of Greek mythology that weaves throughout the narrative lends an aura of the fantastic that makes the story all the more delicious. Louise Brealey’s narration is splendid; both easy on the ears and entirely clear. Kobna Holdbrook-Smith also did great for the sparse male sections within.”Nicholas, Mysterious Galaxy Books
