Here's a look at the titles we love that hit shelves this week.
"The opening of Morgan’s Montgomery Mansion series highlights her sensational sense of humor and development of colorful characters, pitch-perfect relationships and daring plot twists."
"The difficulty the heroine has accepting both the hero’s attention and the fact that marriage can be a happy commitment make for an entertaining tale."
Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy
"Her rich, modern storytelling lays out an intricate plot layered with plenty of action and intrigue. Exquisite characters lie at the center of this story..."
"There’s nothing better than watching a series unfold when the writing gets better over the course of the series, and this is definitely the case here."
"Nantus kicks off her Tales from the Edge series with a fast-paced, well-crafted tale of murder and mystery in outer space...The author’s worldbuilding — or in this case, shipbuilding — is spot on, and the literal lack of gravity takes the story to new heights."
"Rhyme continues to astound with his lightning-quick recall of the technical minutiae of trace evidence. A few more layers are added to the already complex characters of Rhyme and Sachs and their relationship."
"Abbie grapples with professional and emotional issues when she confronts the reality of just how far she will go to stop the murder spree. Plot twists will keep readers guessing right up until the grand finale."
"McIntosh is, without a doubt, one of the most underrated science fiction authors writing today. Defenders is an emotional, action-packed story with an extensive cast of characters..."
"Motherless Child is the perfect vampire novel for those sick of vampires. Hirshberg’s most telling twist is the way he depicts his protagonists’ state as an unrelenting waking nightmare..."
"While the mix of urban fantasy, Guillermo Del Toro-like monsters and academic explanations of this magical world shouldn’t work, it absolutely does."
"Filled with a huge cast of moms (and a dad), this novel brilliantly captures the highs and lows that come along with having children."
"Mosley, as usual, is at the top of his game. Debbie, the “queen of porn,” is a surprisingly sympathetic figure. After the devastating death of her porn producer husband, readers witness her life spiraling out of control..."
"The third in Bockoven’s Beach House series will grab readers’ attention from the get-go. Bockoven knows how to unearth emotions; one can expect to laugh, cry and revisit memories of their own relationships..."
"This debut novel begins with a lot of promise. Deviating from the territory of authors like Amy Tan, Ma juxtaposes the worlds of foreign adoptees with families who have lost touch with much of their culture and heritage."
"This incredible read has an amazing romance and mystery. The society’s dependence upon technology is enthralling, and terrifyingly realistic."
"A Lockhart YA is always a treat and this is no exception. In less talented hands, an unreliable narrator can be tricky, with Lockhart, Cady is a revelation."
"Readers will fall in love immediately. Dallas and Carson are perfect protagonists, so real you can almost hear their Texas drawl when they speak. And the sexual tension is off the charts!"
"The clear, crisp prose shines through with the author’s beautiful description and poignant narrative. Silver and Jared are complex, well-rounded characters who resonate with readers."
"The author intertwines the past and the present with historical details that don’t overwhelm the plot or her readers. Her characters are compelling in the way that they are determined to find out the truth..."
"Equal parts erotic romance and new adult, Laurens’ first in their new Wild Seasons series takes the best elements from both genres to create a crazy, hilarious and surprisingly realistic and touching adventure."
