Jeff Zentner recommends
The Notes (2024)
Catherine Con Morse
"Compellingly readable. Make room in the boarding-school book canon for a new classic."
Hannah Tate, Beyond Repair (2024)
Laura Piper Lee
"Add another name to the Romcom Writers' Hall of Fame. Hannah Tate, Beyond Repair is laugh-out-loud funny, dead sexy, charming, as Southern as chess pie and twice as sweet. Get ready to fall in love!"
I Loved You in Another Life (2023)
David Arnold
"With every book, David Arnold's prodigious imagination expands the bounds of storytelling and how we relate to each other. I LOVED YOU IN ANOTHER LIFE is a stirring, lyrical, and breathtakingly ambitious ode to love that endures across ages."
