A Slow Fire Burning
“I remember the addictiveness of Girl on The Train and Into the Water, and Paula Hawkins did not let readers down with this new book. A Slow Fire Burning was an amazing read that I couldn’t put down.”Deanna Bailey, Story on the Square
Apples Never Fall
"Audiobook narrator Caroline Lee’s voice is an irresistible, visceral joy; like the best audiobook narrators, her delivery is endlessly malleable, shifting nimbly across accent, register and tone to create a sense that one is inside the story rather than peering in from the outside." -- Farhad Manjoo, The New York Times
"[Lee] adds a crisp warmth...
“A wonderful evocation of a time and place, which is not to say it doesn't have the tension of a crime thriller. It's fun to ride along with Ray, who may be more than a little bent, but will likely become your favorite furniture salesman, nevertheless.”Robin, Books & Books @ The Studios of Key West
The Wife Upstairs
“The Wife Upstairs is a thriller that updates Jane Eyre. Jane is a dog walker who catches the eye of Eddie, a wealthy architect. He’s a recent widow and ready to find love again. Jane wants to believe that Eddie has fallen for her but she’s too smart to not notice the inconsistencies in his story about his late wife and the stories that the women in the neighborhood have about the couple. Jane doesn’t mean to go snooping but it’s lucky that she has since she could have suffered the same fate as Eddie’s first wife. The audiobook is narrated by Emily Shaffer, Kirby Heyborne & Lauren Fortgang; they kept the book moving until that final explosive confrontation.”Caren, Jackson Heights Books
“The Turnout is a deliciously uncomfortable story, from the brutality imposed on dancers’ bodies to the uneasy dynamics of sisterly relationships and the tension when someone new intrudes on their domain.”Lexi Beach, Astoria Bookshop
If you enjoyed There There, then you’ll love Firekeeper's Daughter.
“Firekeeper's Daughter is a wonder! We so rarely hear YA through an Indigenous people's voice and this book does it so very well. Main character Daunis Lorenzo Fontaine lives a fine line between her white French Canadian mother and her Ojibwe father in a complicated family dynamic. She is smart, hockey talented, driven, and tenacious as she navigates the murder of her best friend Lily, rampant drug culture, and the journey to find herself. Angeline Boulley seamlessly incorporates the Ojbiwe language and lifeways that both inform and educate the reader in this amazing story that will stay with me long after I have moved onto other books. A MUST-read (or listen)!”Rebecca, Rediscovered Books
Finlay Donovan Is Killing It
If you enjoyed One for the Money "International Edition", then you’ll love Finlay Donovan Is Killing It.
“Overall, a really fun audiobook with an engaging Findlay Donovan, a romance writer. She’s a bit of a hot mess, with a missed deadline, 2 small (and bratty kids), overdue bills and a custody fight with a cheating ex-husband. A misunderstanding at a meeting with her agent, she unwittingly comes under contract to kill an abusive spouse. Hijinks ensue but she finds a friend in her former nanny and her writers block is conquered. If you enjoy Stephanie Plum or Izzy Spellman, you will enjoy this as well.”Audrey, Belmont Books
“A great literary mystery, Banville’s deeply nuanced protagonist ranks right up there with those of Louise Penny, P. D. James and Donna Leon. It's hard to stop listening, but even when I was forced to, I couldn’t wait to get back to it. You’ll want to find out “who done it,“ but you’ll also feel so attached to the characters that, like me, you won’t want it to end.”Bob, Changing Hands
