Tara Laskowski recommends
Under Her Care (2022)
Lucinda Berry
"Creepy and chilling, Under Her Care is a tense page-turner that leaves you questioning everything you ever knew about motherhood and the family bond."
The Red Canoe (2022)
(Buck Fineday, book 1)
Wayne Johnson
"Simultaneously heartbreaking and heart-pounding, THE RED CANOE is a gritty and yet tender novel about an unrelenting pursuit for justice, redemption, and revenge. With nods to classic noir, westerns, action movies, and wilderness survival stories, this novel has a cast of misfit unlikely heroes you'll root for 'til the bloody end."
The Damage Done (2022)
Michael Landweber
"In this wildly inventive novel, Michael Landweber paints a portrait of a world where physical violence is impossible, but humans still find ways to hurt. It's a sweeping story about connections, love and loss, second chances, and redemption that will linger in readers' minds long after they turn the last page."
