Ann Weisgarber recommends
Beyond the Horizon (2015)
Ryan Ireland
"A courageous & essential writer."
The Faithful (2017)
Juliet West
"A vivid and unforgettable story of love . . . Absorbing, fast-paced, and poignant, the portrait of ordinary people caught up in movements bigger than themselves makes this a must-read for today’s readers."
The Darkest Time of Night (2018)
(Darkest Time of Night, book 1)
Jeremy Finley
"From the first page, I was hooked on Jeremy Finley’s action-packed thriller. Tension crackles, mysteries abound, and conspiracies escalate in this crisply-written and imaginative novel. As the indomitable heroines (think Thelma and Louise) race against time and UFOs to find a missing child, Finley’s unerring sense of pacing and suspense will make you read far into the darkest time of night."
The Widows (2019)
(Kinship, book 1)
Jess Montgomery
"With compassion and skill, Jess Montgomery deftly smashes stereotypes and puts a human face on the cost of coal mining in 1924 Appalachian Ohio. Rich with historical details, yet fast paced, The Widows revolves around a murder investigation. But it was the vivid voices of Lily Ross and Marvena Whitcomb that completely captivated my heart and kept me reading long into the night."
