Matthew Sullivan recommends
The Last Equation of Isaac Severy (2018)
Nova Jacobs
"In THE LAST EQUATION OF ISAAC SEVERY, Nova Jacobs sends an endearing bookstore owner on a quest for an elusive mathematical formula--but that is only the beginning of her journey. Jacobs weaves a charming, mysterious tale about family bonds, personal ghosts, and the wondrous intersection of mathematics and art. A fun, compelling read."
The Bookshop of Yesterdays (2018)
Amy Meyerson
"I was hooked from the start.... An homage to books--to the pleasures they can bring, and the loving connections they can conjure."
The Boy At the Keyhole (2018)
Stephen Giles
"A fun and wicked read that is impossible to put down!."
Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts (2019)
(Tuesday Mooney, book 1)
Kate Racculia
"Racculia has created a curiosity cabinet of a novel here—brimming with wonder and surprise, and populated by a charming, somewhat haunted, cast of outsiders. Clue by clue, page by page, Tuesday Mooney leads readers through an adventure that is bookish and spooky and compulsively fun!"
Marion Lane and the Midnight Murder (2020)
(Marion Lane, book 1)
T A Willberg
"Crackles with invention and surprise-the wondrous gadgetry, the moody settings, the endearing heroine and the struggles she's endured-and Willberg weaves it all together around a perfectly puzzling locked-room whodunnit."
The Paris Library (2021)
Janet Skeslien Charles
"The Paris Library is a refreshing novel that celebrates libraries as cradles of community, especially when we need them the most. It shows how literature can be a means of escape, a catalyst for human connection, and a moral center in grim times. A thoroughly enjoyable read, kind-hearted and brimming with delightful bookish allusions."
