The Echo Wife
“A page turner! Great slow burning science fiction thriller. Good fit for anyone trying out either genre for the first time. Very intense read with some jaw-dropping twists. Lots of fun. Xe Sands has the perfect throaty voice. She sounds like a work-obsessed, self-doubting, egotistical, traumatized, scientist!”Kristine, Buttonwood Books and Toys

The Soulmate Equation
“I finished this in one sitting and my neck is killing me. I loved this new story from Christina Lauren, from the third-person point-of-view to the mix of science and romance! It was perfect, from every last side character to the sexual tension between the mains.”Blair Boles, Beausoleil Books
“This has it all: an eating disorder, mommy issues, frozen yogurt, sex, the spirit of Rabbi Judah Loew ben Bezalel, and lots more. The detail Broder brings to this story of appetite (that of spirituality, sensuality, and food) is magnificent. You feel like you're under the neon lights of the kosher Chinese Polynesian American restaurant in the middle of LA, rooting for Rachel as she starts feeding herself in more ways than one. Let me assure you that it's not for everyone, with a big trigger warning and explicit sex scenes, but it could be for you. And, as the narrator, Broder brings Rachel's voice to life in her breezy, LA cool-girl tone that slides over her captivating prose.”Emily, Third Place Books

“A novel within a novel, a plot within a plot, a very realistic and informative look at authors, how they write, how they think, and how they try to be faithful to what they believe: that a good story must be told, even if it is not really yours to tell. Jake Finch Bonner genuinely believes that a story idea can not be stolen–after all there are only so many plots and they have been told repeatedly by many authors. It is how you tell the story, the words you use and the feelings you bring forth that make it the authors. However, when Jake, after years of struggling to get another book published writes a huge bestseller there is someone out in the world who does not think an author has the right to write anyone else’s story. What starts out as a slow but methodical look at Jake’s approach to being an author, his dreams, his aspirations and his beliefs, turns into a fast-paced story about what a person will do to keep their secrets and to punish someone who they think stole a story that he had no right to write.”Nancy, Fiction Addiction

One Two Three
“With notes of Erin Brockovich and Flint Michigan, this rich evocative tale of triplets strikes the perfect balance between family, purpose, cause, passion, and justice. A small, poor, urban town is exploited by a rich and powerful chemical company that leaves cancer, disorder, and death in its wake. Some want justice, some want to be left alone. Most just want a FUTURE. This is a superb book. SUBLIME writing! I adored the three distinct narrative voices of "One", "Two", and "Three." I whole-heartedly recommend.”Kathy, The Well-Read Moose

“"The Exiles" is a powerful and gorgeously written portrait of colonial Australia during the Transportation. From Evangeline, a pregnant convict determined to make a better life for herself after incarceration, to Mathinna, a Palawa Aborigine forcibly adopted from her home and community in Flinders, and still to so many others, Kline creates a page-turning story about how disempowered women survive the fates bestowed onto them, and effect change both in their lives and those of others. I read between print and audiobook, and must mention that Caroline Lee's mastery of a variety of accents from the British diaspora made the characters all the more distinct and real. She brought Kline's words, already compelling, to life.”Cat, Oxford Exchange

Wild Women and the Blues

You gotta tell me something about you. To make this worth my while.” 1925: Chicago is the jazz capital of the world, and the Dreamland Café is the ritziest... Read more »
A Cook's Story; Remaking a Life from Scratch
If you enjoyed Know My Name, then you’ll love Finding Freedom.
“Erin French's memoir is so impressive, highly engrossing, and also so tough to read. She brings us through her life, all the highest peaks and deepest valleys and emphasizes the tremendous effort she has made to come back from each low point. I often listened to French's narration with bated breath, shocked at how much she has overcome in such a relatively short period of time. French's personal story also made me think about our country as a whole and how bad it is at mental health and believing women. It just deeply affronted me that a story like French's is even possible in the 21st century; we have so far to go. Though moments of this book are tough, French's resilience is truly inspiring. You can't help cry for her when things go wrong and root for her when she fights her way back. This memoir, like many that are narrated by their own authors, is in its best form with the audiobook edition. French's voice is raw and truthful and makes you feel this story down to your bones. I highly recommend this to everyone. A story of resilience, Finding Freedom leaves you with much needed hope and light despite it's occasional darkness and an underdog to root for through it all.”Kimi, Buttonwood Books and Toys
