If We Were Villains (2017)
M L Rio
"Full of friendship, betrayal, and passionate devotion, this is a page-turning literary thriller whose final, shocking twist you won't soon forget."
The Necklace (2017)
"At the center of this passionate novel of inheritance and betrayal lies the titular necklace - with mysterious origins, a tragic past, and an uncertain future. Deftly spanning the globe and a century, McMillan's sharp writing explores whether it is possible to undo our wrongs across generations - or if we are doomed to repeat ourselves."
The Blind (2017)
A F Brady
"Sometimes stark and often startling, The Blind asks important questions about the arbitrary lines we draw between the sane and 'crazy' members of our society. Along the way, this quick-paced debut novel pulls its reader into a web of deceit, recrimination, and ultimately, redemption."
The Completionist (2018)
"Thoughtful, suspenseful, and shot through with dark humor, The Completionist creates a future world near enough to our own that the familiarity stings and sings the people who inhabit these pages are vivid, defiant reminders of the sustaining powers of purpose, honor, and family love."
