Fever at Dawn by Peter Gardos

Fever at Dawn has the sweetness of The Rosie Project and the pathos of The Fault in Our Stars. Better still, it is based on a true story, that of the author’s parents, who found love in the aftermath of the Holocaust and the horrors of World War II. …A book to fall in love with.” —Herald Sun

The Wangs vs. the World by Jade Chang

I love a good road trip story. There is something about being trapped in a vehicle with others that forces us to not only examine who we are as people, but also to confront the complicated threads that bind us to others. In The Wangs vs. the World, Chang explores one family’s tumultuous relationships with both humor and empathy. This is Chang’s debut novel and I am definitely looking forward to more by her. - Karena

Listen to Me by Hannah Pittard

“We continue to love thrillers and especially love this one. In Pittard’s unconventional novel, a couple on a road trip deal with raging storms and their own fraying marriage. Appropriately tense and doomy.” —Pamela Paul, editor of The New York Times Book Review

Marrow Island by Alexis M. Smith

Pacific Northwest Book Award Winner & Starred Review from Publishers Weekly

“A faltering journalist returns to an island abandoned after an earthquake released a toxic spill. That’s the beautifully wrought setting of this novel, which reunites two childhood friends, one of whom has joined a sect claiming it can heal the land.” —O, The Oprah Magazine

The Versions of Us by Laura Barnett

Cambridge, 1958. Late for class, Eva Edelstein swerves to miss a dog and crashes her bike. Jim Taylor hurries to help her. In that brief moment, three outcomes are born for Eva and Jim. As the strands of their lives weave together and apart across the decades from college through wildly different successes and disappointments, seductions and betrayals, births and funerals, joys and sorrows, the only constant is the power of their connection.

Lady Cop Makes Trouble by Amy Stewart

Challenging the status quo isn’t easy, and though becoming the first female deputy sheriff is as hard as it gets, Constance Kopp isn’t one to back down. When a mistake threatens her new career, she throws every ounce of nerve and grit she has into fixing it—with some advice from her wonderfully eccentric sisters, of course! I loved this great historical mystery. - Flannery
