Christine Sneed recommends
Necessary Deeds (2024)
Mark Wish
"In Necessary Deeds Matt Connell, Mark Wish has created a diabolically compelling anti-hero--a literary agent with both romance and murder in his heart. As soon as I read the first few lines of this novel, I was all the way in."
The Orchard (2022)
Between Dog and Wolf

Kristina Gorcheva-Newberry
"In The Orchard, Kristina Gorcheva-Newberry has given us a deeply personal coming-of-age story with the unapologetic sensuality and impressive scope of a Gabriel Garcia Marquez novel. This is a sublime debut."
The Second Home (2020)
Christina Clancy
"Christina Clancy writes with an arresting vividness and a nuanced understanding of her characters, who are buffeted by a storm of conflicting desires. A poignant but also very entertaining novel?full of startling detail, humor, and above all, an abiding sympathy for its beautifully drawn characters."
