Joshilyn Jackson recommends
The New Couple in 5B (2024)
Lisa Unger
"The tension just keeps building in Unger's latest dark and twisty delight. Come for the gonzo plot, but stay to be haunted by a history-soaked old New York apartment building that feels more like a sinister character than a setting, and for bright, ambitious, clear-eyed Rosie, whose voice stuck with me long after I turned the final page. I loved it, and you will, too."
Where You End (2024)
Abbott Kahler
"A genuinely startling tale of love and revenge, Where You End's ingenious structure and breakneck pace had me feverishly turning pages. But it's Abbott Kahler's sharp-witted and intrepid heroines, portrayed with such depth and compassion, who elevate this haunting inquiry into the indelible power of memory. Heads up, Indies: this fiction debut is a handselling book lover's dream."
The Fun Widow's Book Tour (2023)
Zoe Fishman
"Though it speaks to one of the most difficult issues facing our nation with wisdom and deep grace, this is not an 'issue' book. This is a book about people, flawed but striving, broken but hopeful. Once I started, I couldn't put it down."
