Rachel Hawkins recommends
The Blonde Identity (2023)
Ally Carter
"Spies! Amnesia! And banter that'll make you chant 'Kiss! Kiss! Kiss!' No one writes an action rom-com quite like Ally Carter."
The Sunset Crowd (2023)
Karin Tanabe
"The Sunset Crowd is everything I want in a book-complex characters, glamorous locales, and a plot that's as smart as it is juicy. Tanabe is a master of historical fiction, and having her as my guide through the star-spangled streets of 1970s Los Angeles-and the gritty, ambitious, and gloriously real hearts of Evra, Theodora, and Bea-was better than a shopping spree on Rodeo Drive. You're going to love it."
The Only One Left (2023)
Riley Sager
"Riley Sager is one of my favorite authors, and The Only One Left might be his best yet. Not only is it a deliciously Gothic thrill ride featuring two of my favorite things (Creepy Houses and Murderous Ladies), but it also asks big questions about grief, loss, and the secrets we keep even from those closest to us. Fun, scary, and so absorbing I almost missed a flight because I was trying to read just one more chapter, The Only One Left is one hell of a read!"
