BLOOD SUGAR, Sascha Rothchild. A young widow — who just so happens to have several murders under her belt — is accused of the murder of her husband, who, in fact, she never harmed. I adored this hilarious, fast-paced, voicey thriller. “A mesmerizing thriller…Jeff Lindsay fans will have a hard time not devouring this standout effort in one sitting,” writes Publisher’s Weekly in a starred review. Amazon, Bookshop, Libro.fm.

GO HEX YOURSELF, Jessica Clare. A witch’s new apprentice falls in love with the witch’s irritating warlock nephew. Amazon, Bookshop, Libro.fm.

HOPE AND GLORY, Jendella Benson. A thriving Angeleno returns to London following her father’s death and attempts to bring her British Nigerian immigrant family back together. “A sumptuous and satisfying meditation on family and the meaning of home,” writes Publisher’s Weekly. Amazon, Bookshop, Libro.fm.

HOUSEBREAKING, Colleen Hubbard. Years after a scandal destroyed her family, a woman returns to her hometown in the wake of her parent’s deaths to take apart the family home, piece by piece. “This is a moving take on how a hard-knock existence can be transformed by friendship and determination,” writes Publisher’s Weekly. Amazon, Bookshop, Libro.fm.

END OF THE WORLD HOUSE, Adrienne Celt. While on vacation in Paris, two best friends go on a bizarre private tour of the Louvre, in which timelines become distorted and the friends are separated. “Haunted, romantic, unexpectedly playful, and un-put-down-able, End of the World House will change the way you think about the immortality of art, free will, the future and the past,” says Rufi Thorpe. Aggregated critical reviews, Amazon, Bookshop, Libro.fm.
