Karen Karbo recommends
Pete and Alice in Maine (2023)
Caitlin Shetterly
"This is the novel I've been waiting to read. Caitlin Shetterly's brilliant take on what happens when the worst happens to a couple days before the pandemic locks them together is simply fabulous. Funny and fierce, compassionate and uncompromising - I could continue pairing complimentary adjectives forever - best just to buy it and clear a weekend. You won't want to put it down."
Truth and Other Lies (2022)
Maggie Smith
"Expert storytelling, and a sharp exploration of the complex relationships between women-mothers and daughters, mentors and proteges, best friends and frenemies-are at the heart of Maggie Smith's compelling and savvy page-turner. Good thing books are calorie-free, I gobbled it down in a single afternoon."
