Elise Hooper recommends
The House is on Fire (2023)
Rachel Beanland
"I whipped through this book as if the pages themselves were on fire. Heart-pounding and suspenseful, this is unputdownable historical fiction at its finest. In THE HOUSE IS ON FIRE, Rachel Beanland gives us a front-row seat to a terrifying nineteenth-century calamity and the fascinating cast of villains, heroes, and everyone-in-between who must confront it and cope with the aftermath. These characters have been seared into my memory and this story will stick with me."
Two Wars and a Wedding (2023)
Lauren Willig
"Vivid and unforgettable, with a captivating cast of entertaining characters and immersive historical details, Lauren Willig transports us to the front lines of two fascinating, yet often overlooked, conflicts. I loved the adventurous, strong-minded women of this book and their refusal to settle for anything less than exactly what they wanted."
Daughters of Victory (2023)
Gabriella Saab
"The Last Checkmate is a winner. Gabriella Saab's debut kept me turning the pages and I was rooting for our young, brave, and resourceful chess prodigy every step of the way."
Eyes Turned Skyward (2022)
Alena Dillon
"Eyes Turned Skyward brings the bravery and tenacity of World War II's Women Airforce Service Pilots front and center, which is exactly where this inspiring story belongs. Engaging and honest, this big-hearted book also explores the contemporary challenges and joys often found in marriage and family life."
The Matchmaker's Gift (2022)
Lynda Cohen Loigman
"The Matchmaker's Gift has all the right ingredients for an enthralling read--history, humor, romance, mystery, and a dash of magic. Loigman's latest book brims with optimism, a cast of colorful characters, and two smart heroines who dare to forge their own brave paths in life. I was completely charmed by this clever dual-timeline novel."
The Lunar Housewife (2022)
Caroline Woods
"The Lunar Housewife is a smart and stylish Cold War page-turner about a young woman who uncovers suspicious forces at work in the male-dominated literary world of 1950s New York City. I loved this book and didn't want it to end!"
