“This emotionally rich espionage story set in present-day Ireland looks at a country divided, the invisibility of motherhood, and the bonds of family that can supersede all else. It is the story of two sisters, one a paramedic and one a BBC news service employee. When one sister is apparently part of an IRA attack, the other refuses to believe it and sets out to prove her sister’s innocence. I read this in one sitting — compelling is not a strong enough adjective for this thrilling novel!”Mary Lee Delafield, Warwick's
The Charm Offensive
“Cochrun expertly captures the nuance of falling for someone with mental health issues, while navigating your own identity, sexuality and neurodivergent revelations in way I have never seen before. This book had me all up in my feelings. I've read it all the way through multiple times (maybe six).”Zinna, A Great Good Place for Books

Dark Olympus: Book #2
“Electric Idol is Katee's modern take on Eros and Psyche and my first ever retelling of these two. I've read my fair share of Hades retellings, but never one of Eros, aka- Greek god of love and sex. You will know him from his Roman counterpart: Cupid (desire). I liked drawing cupids as a teen, so I knew of Cupid and Eros, but I knew close to nothing about Psyche. After finishing the book (because I didn't want to be influenced by the Greek mythology stories) I went and read about her. Goddess of the soul! It works perfectly. Katee's Psyche is a plus size influencer with a heart of gold that you can't help but love. Definitely a modern day Psyche personified!”Anne, Inklings Bookshop
Dark Olympus: Book #1
“The perfect modern take on Hades and Persephone. He was a pure and wonderful soul with enough wickedness in the bedroom to make you want him all for yourself. And Persephone was a delight. The perfect girl on the outside with a desire for more behind the curtains...Another fabulous read by Katee and I cannot recommend it enough!”Anne, Inklings Bookshop

The Only Good Indians
“I loved this book. Jones has a unique narrative voice, allowing ‘the entity’ to step in and take over unexpectedly, amping up the horror. Also, each character has a distinct voice that brings them to life. Jones combines the culture and traditions of the Blackfeet and Crow people with the social truths of their contemporary life. It is refreshingly different from any other horror novel I’ve read. This book is gruesome and honestly scary. I couldn’t put it down.”Kristine Jelstrom-Hamill, Buttonwood Books and Toys

Plain Bad Heroines
“One of the most perfect fall books I've ever read! Plain Bad Heroines follows 2 intertwines stories, one of a cursed New Hampshire boarding school for young girls, the other a modern film crew shooting a film based on the events of the first storyline. The action is spooky but not scary, creepy & deadly without being gory. The author deftly moves between timelines, teasing out more clues as she deepens the mystery and the narrator's deep, honied voice has just the right tinge between old fashioned and modern”Genavieve, Books & Company
“Centering Black joy above all, Stringfellow’s life-affirming debut follows three generations of unforgettable women in a gifted but tested family. Readers will cry, laugh, and sing. I hope we read Stringfellow for a long, long time.”Katie Williamson, Square Books
Sea of Tranquility
“I highly recommend this book! Emily is amazing! I love that this book incorporates characters and elements from her previous two books, but with a completely new plot: time travel. It’s also very meta in that one of the characters is an author who is on a book tour to promote her bestseller about a pandemic. And, as it happens, there is a pandemic in one of the timelines. At one point, a journalist says to the author character, 'So I’m guessing I’m not the first to ask you what it’s like to be the author of a pandemic novel during a pandemic.' So it’s quite self-referential but in a very clever and fun way that doesn’t distract from the story. There’s a lot going on here, and I love the way Emily always ties every single strand together at the end. So satisfying.”Donna, A Great Good Place for Books
“The magic here is not the supernatural kind, but rather an attention to the grace of the ordinary. It is the magic of watching these women come into their power.”—New York Times
