Not the Girl You Marry
“This is a fun and engaging read. Don’t let the concept (a role reversal of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days) or cute cover fool you. There is a lot more depth to this plot than meets the eye; it’s about being seen and accepting your true self. Jack and Hannah both try to be what they think others want them to be but, because of their deceptions due to job obligations, are actually their natural selves. I can’t wait for book two.”Audrey Huang, Belmont Books
Dare to Lead
Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts.
“I LOVE this book. I learned so much during my first listen via Libro.fm that I am going to read it again (this time in hardcover, with colleagues reading alongside so we can discuss). It's super-motivating and inspiring, but totally research-based. I feel that leaders at every type of organization would benefit from reading this. (Also: I got to interview Brené Brown about vulnerability and leadership in Feb. 2021 and it was a career/life highlight!) ”Janet, Avid Bookshop
One Last Stop
“What a magical and creative tale, an addictive read that I did not want to put down. A fun and diverse cast of characters took this story to the next level. With such wide appeal, I know I will be able to put One Last Stop into the hands of almost any customer this summer.”Cori Cusker, Bright Side Bookshop
The Comfort Book
“As a fan of Matt Haig's fiction, I added The Comfort Book to my playlist but hadn't yet listened to it. 'The right book at the right time' was never truer for me than the day I did need support and comfort, and Matt's narration of his inspiring, uplifting perspectives was perfect. I pressed 'rewind' more than once, as his words were such a balm.”Cheryl, Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza
A Good Day for Chardonnay
Sunshine Vicram Series: Book #2
“Overall, a really fun listen for a long car ride. Continuing from A Bad Day for Sunshine, the characters are more developed and more interesting bc of the earlier book. Sunshine is looking at a few things in town, including an old missing kid case from her previous job, a stabbing, and an alleged secret cabal. She's still pining for Levi and is still bantering with her #2, Quincy. Her daughter Auri finds articles about a serial killer and a boarding house and starts her own sleuthing. The crime reports at the start of each chapter is just the icing on the cake. Sunshine and her crew are perfect for readers of Janet Evanovich and Lisa Lutz.”Audrey, Belmont Books
A Bad Day for Sunshine
Sunshine Vicram Series: Book #1
“Sunshine Vicram is the new sheriff in town. But she's not sure how since she never ran for office. On her first day, she's confronted with a kidnapping as well as other small town shenanigans. But, the real reason she came back to her home town is to determine who kidnapped her when she was a teen. This is part whacky Stephanie Plum (but competent policing) and Gilmore Girls with the banter, but with an underlying darkness that will satisfying most mystery readers.”Audrey, Belmont Books
The Soulmate Equation
“What can I say about this book without becoming a blubbering, incoherent mess? To say I loved it with my whole heart would be an understatement. The Soulmate Equation is the best mix of enemies to lovers and quasi-fake/forced dating I’ve read in a while, and who could say no to the genetic dating app premise (I wish the app was real)? I was holding in my squeals so as not to wake anyone because I couldn’t stop listening. If you like your romance with a dash of science, nerd puns, and a sultry cinnamon roll, this one is for you. And Jess’s kid? Can we be best friends?”Britt, Second Star to the Right
How to Fail at Flirting
“A sweet romance about a professor who decides to take a chance when she finds herself out at a bar by herself seated next to an attractive man in town on business. Naya never would have imagined that their one-night stand would turn into a week-long fling with the potential for even more. And because of her toxic past relationships, she is hesitant to trust Jake. I loved reading about a professor as a romance leading lady!”Kate Storhoff, Bookmarks

If I Never Met You
“I really love Mhairi's writing. It's the fluffy romance you need with the feminism and social justice you want! Her books are always so therapeutic. Like, yes, thank you for going through that existential journey Laurie, now I feel 10x more ready to face my obstacles and create the life I want. Mhairi McFarlane is one of my favorite authors now and I've been sleeping on her last two titles I haven't read because I don't want to be done! I'd say I wished she wrote faster, but I can be patient for quality.”Sara, Green Apple Books
Amari and the Night Brothers
Supernatural Investigations: Book #1
“WOW!! This is my new favorite Middle Reader book, hands down!! Amari Peters is a fantastic character full of spunk and determination. She is on a mission to find her brother when she dives headfirst into a brilliant, brutal world of imagination and magic, a world of supernatural affairs. But in this world of supernaturals, magicians are illegal and the worst criminal masterminds. When Amari joins the school at the Supernatural Bureau, her dormant magical powers are unleashed. She must fight to prove herself to all those who fear her as a magician. Amari stands strong and true to herself in the face of controversy–she is a great role model to all. This is a fun, addictive book, filled with many twists and turns.”Anna, The Well-Read Moose

The Infinite Game
“I loved listening to this book. Simon does an excellent job walking readers through how businesses are successful by finding and sticking to their "just cause." A fascinating peek into business history and a thoughtful reflection on how to create a thriving business that stands the test of time.”Terri, Swamp Fox Bookstore
“Perhaps I have a different perspective on this book because I have a younger brother who is a Black, 20-something man in sales, but this book presents an evocative, honest, complex portrait of being a BIPOC person in a white-dominant workplace (albeit one that is high-powered, sales-driven, and New York City-based). This is a book that allows a reader to be seen if this is their experience, but also for a reader to learn about a different reality if this is not their own. Black Buck is a tightly woven, contemporary debut from an author to watch.”BrocheAroe Fabian, River Dog Book Co.

Such a Fun Age
“A racial comedy of manners for the digital age, Such a Fun Age is a hilarious and cringe-inducing look at white people trying to do the right thing: badly, and for all the wrong reasons. Nicole Lewis's reading is a dazzling feat: expertly code-switching between the voice Emira uses with her friends, to the voice she uses with her boss, Alix, to the voice her boss's suburban black friend, Tamara, uses with Alix, to the voice Tamara uses with Emira. I don't think I would have enjoyed this book half as much without this effortlessly nuanced narration.”Rachel, The Book Table
