Susan Elizabeth Phillips recommends
The Lion Women of Tehran (2024)
Marjan Kamali
"A must-read for every book club. Deeply emotional, insightful, and engrossing. You won't forget these women for a very long time. I loved it."
A Daughter of Fair Verona (2024)
(Daughter of Montague, book 1)
Christina Dodd
"Who has the audacity to write a book about Romeo and Juliet's daughter? Christina Dodd, that's who! With its twisty plot and engaging characters, A Daughter of Fair Verona is charming, funny, and totally engaging. First I smiled, then I chuckled, then I laughed out loud. It's fresh, audacious, and altogether captivating. It's such a treat to read something I haven't read a thousand times before!"
The Blonde Identity (2023)
(Blonde Identity, book 1)
Ally Carter
"A delightful, delicious joy ride of a romp!"
