Stephen P Kiernan recommends
The Invisible Woman (2021)
Erika Robuck
"If you love historical fiction with a huge-hearted juggernaut of a heroine, The Invisible Woman is for you. This tense and vivid novel stands out because of its unforgettable main character. Virginia is a vigilant spy, a fearless soldier and an unflinching commander. And yet, despite her vows to remain otherwise, she also becomes a person with great love for the people she is striving to liberate. Her desire for victory and vengeance animates every chapter, and her conscience enlivens every page. When you like a character, and then admire her, and then want to meet her, you know the author has made her come uniquely alive. I read this book in a blur -- that's how compelling it was."
The Mountains Wild (2020)
(Maggie D'arcy, book 1)
Sarah Stewart Taylor
"The Mountains Wild has all the ingredients you'd want in a tasty thriller -- twisted plots, uncertainty about who to trust, dogged investigators and a gripping climax -- but it also has two extra spices. First, the setting of Ireland is so vivid and precise, you can practically taste the pints and smell the peat fires. Second, this novel has incredible tenderness and emotional accuracy. This is a thriller with a big heart."
