Emily Carpenter recommends
Her Dying Day (2022)
Mindy Carlson
"Mindy Carlson's irresistible new book, Her Dying Day, is a charming, expertly-written mystery with a clever heroine at the center who wisecracks her way through the fascinating case of a missing Agatha-Christie-like author, solving the cold case and coming to terms with her difficult past with an aplomb that kept me turning the pages at lightning speed. Slick, sophisticated, and fun, this one absolutely sparkles."
In Her Defense (2022)
(Riversedge Law Club, book 1)
Amy Impellizzeri
"Finally--the female-driven, character-rich, John Grisham-style legal thriller I've been waiting for..."
The Hitman's Daughter (2022)
(Mave Michael, book 1)
Carolyne Topdjian
"Carolyne Topdjian's THE HITMAN'S DAUGHTER nails every classic gothic horror trope in the most elegant of ways, drawing us into a ghostly suspense story with exquisite imagery, lush language and a cast of characters in the tradition of the best whodunits. Sumptuous, sinister, and seductive, I was both charmed and haunted."
These Silent Woods (2021)
Kimi Cunningham Grant
"Elegiac yet hopeful, raw but beautiful, and simmering with suspense, These Silent Woods is observant to the core."
Everything We Didn't Say (2021)
Nicole Baart
"Nicole Baart skillfully blends suspense and family drama like no one else. Everything We Didn’t Say is an atmospheric barn-burner that jumps from past to present in an Iowa farm community rife with secrets, simmering grudges, and an unsolved murder. I was utterly enthralled."
Six Weeks to Live (2021)
Catherine McKenzie
"Catherine McKenzie works her magic again with Six Weeks to Live, combining harrowing domestic suspense with a razor-sharp crime thriller that had me riveted from page one. Hands down, my favorite book this year."
