Kristin Harmel recommends
Strange Nervous Laughter (2007)
Bridget McNulty
"A sparkling, lyrical novel filled with surprisingly powerful truths about the nature of love."
The Good Luck Girls of Shipwreck Lane (2013)
Kelly Harms
"A poignant, hilarious debut that's filled with heart, soul, and laugh-out-loud moments... it'll make you want to pick up and move to 1516 shipwreck lane immediately!"
The Balance Project (2015)
Susie Orman Schnall
"If you liked The Devil Wears Prada, you'll enjoy this charming romp, which delivers with heart, depth, and a perfectly satisfying conclusion."
The Truth We Bury (2017)
Barbara Taylor Sissel
"Once again, Barbara Taylor Sissel has kept me up into the wee hours of the night with an unputdownable masterpiece that explores family, love, and the ramifications of the decisions we make. The perfect blend of mystery, danger, and the type of secrets people kill for, The Truth We Bury will keep you reading furiously until you reach the perfectly executed end."
Come from Away (2018)
Genevieve Graham
"The talented Genevieve Graham once again calls upon a fascinating true story in Canadian history to remind us that beneath the differences of our birth, and despite the obstacles we face, we’re all human underneath. Vividly drawn and heartwarming, Come from Away is a beautiful look at the choices we make in the face of both love and war."
Love and Other Words (2018)
Christina Lauren
"Love and Other Words is a triumph, the kind of book that makes you feel so deeply for the finely drawn characters that you almost forget they’re fictional. You’ll be swept away by the heartbreak, the joy, the chemistry, and the charisma woven through the fabric of Macy’s and Elliot’s star-crossed relationship. As the story unfolds–expertly interweaving the past with the present—you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll root for Macy and Elliot to find their way back to each other against all odds. A true joy from start to finish."
Evergreen Tidings from the Baumgartners (2018)
Gretchen Anthony
"This delightfully clever debut is a masterfully written, Wes Anderson-esque roller coaster ride through a series of self-made disasters in a hilariously dysfunctional family. Evergreen Tidings from the Baumgartners hits all the right notes; you'll double over with laughter, but you'll also find yourself at times misty-eyed and introspective. I have the feeling this is just the first of many skilled and heartfelt dramedies from the pen of talented newcomer Gretchen Anthony. If you're a fan of modern film classics such as The Royal Tenenbaums and Moonrise Kingdom, get ready to meet your new favorite book."
The Light Over London (2019)
Julia Kelly
"Sweeping, stirring, and heartrending in all the best ways, this tale of one of WWII's courageous, colorful, and enigmatic Gunner Girls will take your breath away."
Light Changes Everything (2020)
Nancy E Turner
"Nancy E. Turner’s tale of an endearingly plucky young woman in the wild Arizona Territory in the early 1900's is chock full of family feuds, intrigue, heartache, gumption, and adventure. Colorful, thoroughly enjoyable, and as fast-moving as a band of horses galloping across the desert, Light Changes Everything is a delight."
Lost Autumn (2020)
Mary-Rose MacColl
"A perfectly heartbreaking tale of royalty, lies, and friendship."
