The Marsh King's Daughter (2017)
Karen Dionne
"I was absolutely gripped. What a fresh novel, and so expertly plotted and wonderfully well written. I loved the narrative voice, and thought the balance of beautifully drawn and compelling character study and heart-pounding action was absolutely superb. A real tour-de-force."

The Blackbird Season (2017)
Kate Moretti
"The Blackbird Season pulls off a very difficult thing: it's nail-biting and thought-provoking all at once. It's a rare that a book can make you turn pages like your life depends on it, but also give you food for thought because the characters are so perfectly drawn. A stunning achievement from an extremely talented writer."

The Wife Between Us (2018)
Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
"The Wife Between Us delivers a whipsmart, twisty plot in a taut, pacy narrative. It's terrific and troubling. This is one scary love triangle where you won't know who to trust. I loved it."
