Cristina Alger recommends
The Necklace (2017)
"Claire McMillan's The Necklace has everything I love in story: a rich family drama, an enthralling mystery, exotic settings and gorgeous historical detail. McMillan writes in assured and often witty prose, and her characters came to life on the very first page. An enchanting, intoxicating book."
Family Trust (2018)
"FAMILY TRUST reads like a brilliant mashup of The Nest and Crazy Rich Asians (with a soupçon of Arrested Development for good measure). It’s dark and funny and entertaining and thoughtful all at once. The best kind of family drama. I loved every page."
Flamingo Coast (2019)
Martin Jay Weiss
"I loved Flamingo Coast. A fun, fast-paced ride through the dark, mysterious world of off-shore banking that will draw readers in from the very first page."
The Unbreakables (2019)
"Lisa Barr has written a fun, sexy, satisfying tale of a woman getting her groove back. From the Rodin Museum in Paris to the South of France, The Unbreakables has unexpected moments of warmth and human connection, and charts a woman’s journey back to herself."
The Escape Room (2019)
"A sharp, slick, utterly engrossing thriller. This knockout debut hooked me from the first page and didn't let go."
"David Bell is a top-notch storyteller and Layover is his best book yet. I flew through this twisty, riveting psychological thriller at breakneck speed, hooked from the first page right up through the book's breathless conclusion."
