Simone St James recommends
The September House (2023)
Carissa Orlando
"Shocking, electrifying, and absolutely original. Carissa Orlando takes us on a journey that moves from savagely funny to terrifying with the turn of a page. It's an unflinching exploration of the dark things we don't talk about, and it's a must read for horror fans."
Two Wars and a Wedding (2023)
Lauren Willig
"With her trademark wit and storytelling talent, Lauren Willig takes you on a journey into history that is both wildly entertaining and deeply heartfelt. You'll be rooting for this courageous, delightful heroine on every page."
The House Across the Lake (2022)
Riley Sager
"The House Across the Lake pulls you under on the first page and doesn't let you come up for air. With fascinating characters, a suffocating setting, and an intriguing premise, Riley Sager relentlessly turns up the tension on every page. Good luck putting this book down."
