Lori Rader-Day recommends
thumb
Northwoods (2024)
Amy Pease
"If you're going to these Northwoods for peace and quiet, think again. Amy Pease's debut novel is a gorgeously rendered character study of a man, a mother, and a place with far too much going on under the surface. The perfect lakeside reading."
thumb
Last Night at the Hollywood Canteen (2023)
Sarah James
"The Last Night at the Hollywood Canteen delivers the humor, wit, and dazzle of WWII-era Hollywoodland while asking darker questions about the seductive price of fame and trade-offs artists make to earn a living."
thumb
Dark Ride (2023)
Lou Berney
"Put your to-be-read pile to the side. A new book from Lou Berney should go to the top of your agenda."
