Fans of historical romance take note, this may be Sarah MacLean's best yet! From the opening scene (a mobster wedding turned horribly wrong) you'll be swept into the hijinks of the British Aristocracy's most daring ladies - a righteous gang of thieves bringing justice to the most corrupt nobles. Complete with a madcap dash toward Gretna Green and a swoony love story, this book is a delight. ~ Reviewed by Rachel Person

An art book, a journal, a peek into the mind of one person coming to terms with the fact that it is okay to be you, it is okay to be bigger than life as you try to live it, and it is okay to be gay (both meanings, happy and homosexual). The contemporary voice of the author shows himself as he was, is and will be. Text and art complement each other beautifully in a fun manner. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Less Is Lost is the delightful sequel to Greer’s Pulitzer-winning novel Less. Arthur Less, that most flappable of protagonists, is sent into yet another crisis for the unpaid back rent he owes on his ex-lover’s San Francisco apartment. Once again accepting all of the gigs that come his way, Less sets out for America in what will prove to be another odyssey of humiliations. Through the south and despite his attempts to camouflage being gay with copious American flags on his RV, flip-flops, wraparound sunglasses, and a “hoot ‘n’ holler” T-shirt, he is identified and always asked about his accent. “European? Dutch?” By the end, Less will have to weather the death of his first love, a strained relationship with Freddy, his no longer absent father, hurricanes, accidentally flooding a campground, the return of H.H.H. Mandern, bizarre theater troupes, and another writer also named Arthur Less. ~ Reviewed by Dafydd Wood

Published: Hogarth - September 6th, 2022

Zamora's first work of prose is a stunning, nearly moment-to-moment recounting of his seven week, 3000 mile journey as a nine year old from El Salvador to the Arizona desert. No family members accompanied him. His parents had already fled the civil war in their home country. Led by one coyote or pollero after another, Javier joined a group of strangers who traveled by bus, boat and foot, on a harrowing, traumatizing journey to join his parents in the United States. Through a nearly unbelievable force of will and the care of three strangers who became his second family, Javier made it. An incredible, unforgettable work of literature. ~ Reviewed by Stan Hynds

Lisa Jewell you beautiful human. Why are you so good at writing addicting mysteries? I really had no idea where this book was going to go, and I'm glad I dived in blind. Just a few words to sum up this thriller: Enchanting; Riveting; Haunting; Suspenseful; Shameful; Beautiful. And, like all of Lisa's books, at its core this book is about family. What is a family? How does it shape you? How does it break you? And what do you become after a great loss. All in all, not disappointed in the slightest, other than that the story is already over. ~ Reviewed by Kirstin Swartz

Published: St. Martin's Griffin - October 11th, 2022

Mistakes Were Made is a feel good romance following 21 year old Cassie and 38 year old Erin. There may be a 17 year age difference between the two women, but their love for each other soon becomes unquestionable. What started as a fun, one night stand in the backseat of a car, evolves into something more after the two women accidentally run into each other over breakfast with Erin's daughter, who happens to be Cassie's best friend. It's a chaotic, slightly messy romance, but one that is filled with a lot of love and laughs. I had a really good time reading this one! ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn
