A Long Stretch of Bad Days

A mother vanished. A father presumed guilty. There is no proof. There are no witnesses. For the children, there is only doubt. From the New York Times bestselling author of Defending Jacob. 

What Have We Done


Alex Finlay could write about paint drying and I’d read it. He’s a master of mystery and intrigue and he gets better book by book. BOTM should be ashamed they haven’t picked him up already. 

Happy Place 

BOTM skipped out on the last Emily Henry novel. That was a mistake.

Love Theoretically


Ali Hazelwood. Enough said.

The London Seance Society 


Sarah Penner wrote The Lost Apothecary, and it was nominated for Book of the Year. They have to posit this one up, right?
