Brianna Labuskes

Brianna Labuskes' life-long dream was to join the ranks of the superstar women who penned the romance novels - from historicals to contemporaries and everything in between - of which she could never quite get enough. She tries to write the books she wants to read, with spunky heroines who save the day while their heroes watch in awe and admiration. When she's not writing, you can find Brianna playing with her two adorable nieces, editing health care policy news and watching too much Netflix. She also loves travel, feminism and country music.

Brianna Labuskes recommends
The Uncharted Flight of Olivia West (2024)
Sara Ackerman
"In this gem of a novel, Sara Ackerman delivers a fun, fast-paced tale of courage, grit and adventure while shining a spotlight on a slice of history that's flown under the radar. The lush historical details and effortless prose make the book soar, while the white-knuckle action keeps you flipping the pages as fast as you can. Ackerman remains unmatched in creating strong, inspirational women who grab hold of your heart on page one and refuse to let go. At once charming and exhilarating, The Uncharted Flight of Olivia West should be at the top of every must-read list."
The London Bookshop Affair (2024)
Louise Fein
"In this captivating page-turner, Louise Fein deftly layers fascinating historical details, impossibly high stakes and a nuanced portrait of familial love that all together create a gripping, unforgettable story. The moral complexity of the novel is matched beautifully by its vivid prose and three-dimensional characters. Voracious historical fiction readers, especially, will delight in this setting, which offers a fresh lens through which to view the Cuban Missile Crisis. A gem of a book that should be on everyone's must-read list!"
Last Night at the Hollywood Canteen (2023)
Sarah James
"This vibrant, utterly delightful mystery expertly captures the drama, glamour and absurdity of wartime Hollywood. Sarah James's swift dialogue, dry wit and clever characters transport you into a 1940s movie, where the jokes are quick, the love affairs scandalous and the cast as charming as they are flawed. Underneath it all, James's deep knowledge of the era's movies and music lends an authenticity that makes the rest shine even brighter. I laughed, I gasped and I never wanted it to end. This should head straight to the top of every must-read list."
