Luanne Rice recommends
The Twelve Dogs of Christmas (2023)
Susan Wiggs
"Susan Wiggs and the words 'favorite writer' go together, and with Sugar and Salt she is at the top of her powers. She understands the tender dramas of everyday life, of friendship and family, of wanting something that might be just beyond reach - and then again might not. I loved her character Margot Salter, and my heart soared and broke and soared again to learn the secrets of her past and how they threaten her hard-won present. Susan writes so deliciously about food, love, and hope...she will make you believe in life's sweetness."
Reef Road (2023)
Deborah Goodrich Royce
"Reef Road is magnificent. It feels utterly real, a novel of deeply personal context. It swerves between truth and lies - the lies that lead to an even deeper - and more devastating - truth. Though pure fiction, it reads as compellingly as a mixture of memoir and expose. It has left me shaken to the core. Deborah Goodrich Royce writes with brilliant understanding of the mystery and occasional grace of trauma."
Over Her Dead Body (2022)
Susan Walter
"Over Her Dead Body is a psychological thrill ride that takes us into world of Hollywood and the heart of a family with deeply hidden secrets. Susan Walter is a master storyteller with an insider's view of the film business, and her novel glints with danger and brilliant insight into the hopes and dreams of an aspiring actress. I read it in one sitting, guessing the whole way through, stunned by the conclusion."
