Velvet Was the Night by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Maite is a secretary too busy reading romantic comics rather than living a life on her own. Elvis spends each day memorizing a new word and works for a man called El Mago. The two are bonded together by what feels like fate: the disappearance of Maite’s neighbor. Told in alternating points of view, Silvia Moreno-Garcia (Mexican Gothic) returns with an enticing noir mystery set in 1970’s Mexico City perfect for new and returning readers. —Andrea

Rock Paper Scissors by Alice Feeney

Ten years of marriage and love story that won’t quit. A weekend away for a couple at the breaking point. Tragedies and secrets of the past coming to call. You may think you know this story, but Alice Feeney got me, with genuinely shocking (and satisfying!) twists and turns, following her vivid characters through the halls of memory and a remote Scottish get-away. An atmospheric marital thriller with literary notes, perfect to wrap up with as the weather turns cold and the spooky season approaches. —Jocelyn
