The Last Romantics
“Oh, my! I was so moved by this book it brought me to tears. Fiona, Renee, Catherine, and Joe invaded my imagination and kept me spellbound until the end. Siblings! Many of us have them and often don’t think about the nuances of our relationships. Conklin’s story brought my own siblings to mind and questions emerged that can’t be pursued on paper. Memories are such powerful things and affect our lives in compelling ways. There is so much love in this story. It’s absolutely wonderful! Please read it!”Stephanie Crowe, Page and Palette
“I thoroughly enjoyed the audio of Sally Hepworth's The Mother-In-Law. Excellent narration. The story begins with the death of Lucy's mother-in-law, Diane. Diane told her family that she had breast cancer, but she doesn't. More mysterious, drugs are found in her system. What follows is a look back in to the history of a complicated family, made more complex by in-law relationships. For readers who enjoy family drama with a touch of mystery. Will recommend to customers who are looking for a great summer (or any season!) read with depth and intrigue!”Jessica, Main Street Books Davidson

Searching for Sylvie Lee
“Searching For Sylvie Lee by Jean Kwok was a sublime listening experience. The expert narration added to the suspense of the novel and had me listening way past my bedtime! Searching For Sylvie Lee tells the story of a missing sister and the devastating ramifications of secrets kept long ago. How well do we truly know our loved ones? Their weaknesses, insecurities and desires? Jean Kwok expertly weaves this tale of family love, bitterness, regret and longing. Five stars!”Jessica, Main Street Books Davidson
Ask Again, Yes
“Ask Again, Yes is a compelling, heartbreaking, yet ultimately hopeful novel. Mary Beth Keane is incredibly talented; she does not sugar coat, instead giving readers a compulsively readable family drama. I did not expect to become so completely engrossed in these characters’ stories — two families whose lives become inextricably linked by young love and personal tragedy. Their myriad mistakes and attempts to atone beautifully demonstrate the power and grace found in forgiveness.”Anderson McKean, Page and Palette

The women work together to provide information about the Germans to the American forces, but when their resistance cell is exposed, everyone is at risk.

Mi-ja and Young-sook, sisters of the heart, grow together and then are forced apart by circumstances much larger than themselves. The story shifts between older Young-sook and the younger girls teasing out the conflict and making the reader anxious for resolution! The narrator flows seamlessly from American English into Korean (towns, names and some common terms), a huge help if you are not familiar with Korean words.”Genavieve, Books & Company
“A Russian night witch and a British war correspondent turned Nazi hunter join forces to track a ruthless assassin in The Huntress, the latest book by Kate Quinn. From the pre-war wilds of the Soviet Union to the streets of a war-torn Germany to the bustle of Boston, Quinn masterfully mixes the past with a post-war present, and it’s phenomenal. Fans of The Alice Network and The Nightingale will love this fantastically fast-paced and utterly exhilarating historical fiction.”Kristin Bates, McLean & Eakin Booksellers

“Highly recommend the audiobook. It’s like being in a room with the characters telling you what it was like being in a 70’s Rock ‘n Roll band. (The books’s format is like reading a documentary script.)”Mollie, HearthFire Books and Treats
