Miss Austen (2020)
Gill Hornby
"Fans of Austen will rejoice in the chance to enter this fictional world and spend time with the extended Austen family as Cassandra and Jane navigate the demands of her genius and temperament in the face of the many pressures single women have endured throughout history."

The All-Night Sun (2020)
Diane Zinna
"A mesmerizing, disturbing, and heart-wrenching read about loneliness and grief. Diane Zinna writes sentences that will break you, and then suddenly everything on the page lights up again, and you go on the rollercoaster that is love, and loss, and life. With poetic and hypnotic prose, The All-Night Sun is an essential addition to fiction on grief and a compelling story about female friendship, its limits and constraints, and the surprising ways it can make us whole."

The Heiress (2021)
Molly Greeley
"With stunningly lyrical writing, Greeley elevates Austen-inspired fiction onto a whole new plane."

Maggie Finds Her Muse (2021)
Dee Ernst
"Maggie Finds Her Muse is just like the dream vacation to Paris it centers around... This book will make you want to catch the next plane to Paris, eat kouign amman and drink cafe crème, and tour the City of Light with the thoughtful, self-deprecating and delightful Maggie Bliss as your friend and guide."

The Christie Affair (2022)
Nina de Gramont
"Immersive, reflexive and propulsive, The Christie Affair is an extremely impressive literary debut which reveals its hidden themes and secrets through a narrative dance brilliantly done. This tale of two very different women who want the very same things in life forges surprising bonds both with its characters and the reader, deliciously subverting our notions of what makes a heroine, mother, writer and wife."
thumb
Bluebird (2022)
Genevieve Graham
"Full of wartime heroics, rollicking rumrunners, and star-crossed lovers, Bluebird has it all. But most of all, it is full of compassion for the men and women who served in the first global conflict facing our world. No one writes Canadian historical fiction with more heart than Genevieve Graham, and this pure and ennobling tale is exactly what our own hearts need now."
thumb
On Gin Lane (2022)
Brooke Lea Foster
"On Gin Lane first seduces with everything readers want in a sun-drenched tale: glamorous and colorful characters, evocative settings, and enough secrets to topple a town. But as our heroine battles a suspicious fire, fiance, and social circle, author Foster slyly starts adding all the heady thrills of a modern-day Rebecca to the intoxicating mix. An un-put-downable, irresistible summer read."
thumb
Acts of Violet (2022)
Margarita Montimore
"A skillful blend of genres, from moving family drama and twisty thriller to insightful social commentary on fame, feminism, magic and media. Smart, suspenseful, and always tantalizing, Acts of Violet will be your perfect summer read."
