“Welcome to the strikingly dysfunctional Plumb family: four siblings connected by little more than 'The Nest,' a joint trust fund that each has earmarked to support their unrealistic lifestyles. When Leo, the older brother and the center of the Plumb family universe, injures himself and a 19-year-old waitress in a scandalous car accident and endangers 'The Nest' just months before the funds are to be made available, the siblings come together for damage control. Sweeney artfully touches on each family member as they scramble to save the precarious lives they have built for themselves, bringing light and humor to her characters' various plights. Funny, thoughtful, and filled with unique and complex characters -- this book is a must-read.”Jennifer Oleinik, University Book Store
“Patchett leaves behind the exotic locales and intricate plots of State of Wonder and Bel Canto for an even darker and more difficult place to navigate -- the interior of a blended family over the course of several decades. While more domestic than many of her previous novels, Commonwealth offers plenty of intrigue and surprises as Patchett explores the interaction of a group of children forced into each other's lives because of their parents' impulsive choices. With keen insight, tears of both sorrow and joy, and some real -- if dark -- humor, Patchett pulls readers into this complex family's world, and we are eager for every detail.”John Christensen, Arcadia Books

The Almost Sisters
“Leia Birch is pretty much a rock star in the comic world, but her personal life has taken over the drama of her heroines, Violet and Violence. Leia is pregnant with a biracial child after too much tequila and a one-night stand at Comic-Con, her sister's perfect marriage is imploding, and it appears her sweet, proper Southern grandmother has been hiding all kinds of improper things, including advancing dementia. As always, Jackson is witty and charming, and her characters are so wonderfully drawn, it's hard to believe you don't actually know these people. The Almost Sisters is a hopeful book about our ability to preserve the dignity of one another while still helping them grow and change.”Susan Thomas, CoffeeTree Books
The Last Mrs. Parrish
“I decided to listen to the audio version from Libro.fm when I saw Constantine has a new book coming out and when I read that The Last Mrs. Parrish is under production. I think listening as opposed to reading made me feel like the characters were more real - still obnoxious but more like people you might know. As it turns out the book was well worth reading and finishing. And the ending was one of the best I have seen in a long time. I figured out where it was going toward the end but had no idea how totally satisfying it would end up. Now I can’t wait to read The Wife Stalker and see how it could possibly compare to The Last Mrs. Parrish.”Nancy, Fiction Addiction

“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

Sing, Unburied, Sing
“Sing, Unburied, Sing is a dark and gorgeous song of love and heartbreak, haunting and tragic and disorienting in its timelessness. The Deepwater Horizon oil spill anchors Ward's tale to Mississippi today, which is almost indistinguishable from its notorious yesterday, a present and past (ironically) made more alive in the novel by ghosts and where everyone suffers from the cancers of buried sins. On Jojo's 13th birthday, while Mam is dying and Pop struggles to keep everyone safe, Leonie plans a road trip to the prison to pick up Michael, Jojo and baby Kayla's father. It's The Odyssey meets the Delta blues meets William Faulkner and Toni Morrison and some ineffable something that is Jesmyn Ward's own magic.”Sara Hinckley, Hudson Booksellers
