Sarah Stewart Taylor recommends
Come Away From Her (2023)
Samuel W Gailey
"Sharp and unsettling, Come Away From Her peels back the layers of deceit in a small town with plenty of darkness to hide. Gailey presents the reader with a violent death in the first few pages, then goes back to trace the sequence of events that starts with the arrival in town of a mysterious woman, events that no one in the town of Black Walnut can escape. The climactic reveal feels both shocking and inevitable in this tense and vividly drawn read."
Book of Knives (2022)
Lise Haines
"In Lise Haines's subtly menacing and spooky mystery, Nora, a young widow, and her new husband, Paul, join his family at their decaying lakeside summer camp. As a collection of knives disappear from the camp one by one, other unsettling things start to happen and Nora begins to suspect a ghostly presence is haunting the lake and cabins. Beautifully written and endlessly absorbing, this is a novel to read with the covers up around your chin and a candle burning."
The Art of the Decoy (2022)
(Scandal Mountain Antiques Mystery, book 1)
Trish Esden
"A well-drawn Vermont setting, a satisfyingly deep dive into the art and antiques world, and an expert and tricky mystery make this a must-read debut for Esden's clever antiques dealer Edie Brown. Bring on Edie's next adventure!"
