“Hibbert continues the tale of sisters with Eve and her love him/hate him romance with Jacob, a B and B owner. Butler's reading captures every moment of wonder that signposts falling in love, infusing a little bit of awe in each tiny epiphany. It was touching and real to see these characters' neurodiversity as part of what makes them perfect for each other. We all have our quirks. Sometimes, love is just one of them.”Charity, Schuler Books

Amari and the Night Brothers
Supernatural Investigations: Book #1
“This was just fantastic. Amari is such a great main character, smart and gutsy especially as she navigates grief, bullying and a new magical environment. I loved her new found friendship with Elsie as well as this new magical school world. If you loved Harry Potter and Morrigan Crow (from Nevermoor), you will adore this.”Audrey, Belmont Books
“I have absolutely loved everything Nnedi Okorafor has ever written, and this latest book from her is no exception! Her amazing ability to blend traditional African stories and themes with hardcore science fiction is spectacular. While Sankofa cannot remember her name, she does remember her past as she travels from town to town. Even as a child, she demands respect from the townspeople she interacts with, for she is the Adopted Child of Death. Or is she? Was it an alien device that changed her when she was just a child? Sankofa knows. But she isn’t sharing. This mind-blowing science fiction fantasy novella is absolutely glorious, and I can’t wait to give it to everyone I know!”Annie Carl, The Neverending Bookshop
“LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book on Libro.fm, as an audiobook. To hear the Ojibwe words spoken is a treat not to be missed. Great reader in Isabella Star Lablanc!”Suzanne, Ballast Book Co.

You'll Never Believe What Happened to Lacey
Crazy Stories about Racism
“I didn’t think it was possible to combine education and humor so effectively in a book about racism, but Ruffin and Lamar proved me wrong. This incredibly well-structured, digestible, challenging, and engaging book opened my eyes to the many ways racism can permeate every interaction in Black people’s lives. The way the sisters play off each other and how Ruffin reflects on Lamar’s experience in contrast to her own make the book especially accessible. A must-read!”Emily Autenrieth, A Seat at the Table Books
We Keep the Dead Close
A Murder at Harvard and a Half Century of Silence
“As much a journey for the writer as it is for the reader, this book solves a murder but leaves us with many unanswered questions. We Keep the Dead Close challenges us to question our assumptions as well as the paths we use to arrive at those assumptions. Delving into the academic culture of Harvard, the misogyny of the 1960s, and the burgeoning women’s rights movement, the story follows several threads, all of which have a significant impact on the life of Jane Britton, whose story is told with empathy, compassion, and five decades of curiosity.”Camille Kovach, Completely Booked
