Each month RT Book Reviews’ editors select one book that is not only compelling but pushes the boundaries of genre fiction and stands out from the more than 250 books reviewed in its latest issue and online.
“Because of the sheer number of books we review each month in RT Book Reviews we have a unique perspective on which one is destined for the keeper shelf and therefore deserves our Seal of Excellence,” says Carol Stacy, Publisher and Internet Director. “It is our intention to share this gem with readers and draw attention to a fantastic book they might not otherwise pick up.“
The RT Editors have chosen Emily Arsenault's mystery, In Search of the Rose Notes, as this month's Seal of Excellence recipient. This novel captured our editors' attention with its intricate details of a childhood friendship, a nostalgic portrayal of growing up in the early 1990s, and a well-constructed, carefully planned mystery. Says one RT editor: "This is the best book I've read all year."
But why was In Search of the Rose Notes awarded the RT Seal Of Excellence, and which other titles were contenders for the month of August?
