NEW FICTION BOOKS:
Deep Fake by Ward Larsen – Sarah Ridgeway is living the life she's always envisioned. She has a devoted husband, a loving daughter and a comfortable home. The path to reach it, however, has not always been smooth. For 12 years her husband, Bryce, served in the Army, deployed to some of the world's worst trouble spots. After his service ended with a combat injury, the future had seemed precarious, but with Sarah's support and that of his wealthy family, combined with his exemplary service record, he is elected to Congress. Then, in a moment, everything changes...
Things We Hide from the Light by Lucy Score – Nash Morgan was always known as the good Morgan brother, with a smile and a wink for everyone. But now, this chief of police is recovering from being shot and his Southern charm has been overshadowed by panic attacks and nightmares. He feels like a broody shell of the man he once was. Nash isn't about to let anyone in his life know he's struggling. But his new next-door neighbor, smart and sexy Lina, sees his shadows.
I Have Some Questions for You by Rebecca Makkai – A successful film professor and podcaster, Bodie Kane is content to forget her past – the family tragedy that marred her adolescence, her four largely miserable years at a New Hampshire boarding school, and the murder of her former roommate, Thalia Keith, in the spring of their senior year. Though the circumstances surrounding Thalia's death and the conviction of the school's athletic trainer, Omar Evans, are hotly debated online, Bodie prefers – needs – to let sleeping dogs lie.
Pineapple Street by Jenny Jackson – Darley, the eldest daughter in the well-connected old money Stockton family, followed her heart, trading her job and her inheritance for motherhood but giving up far too much in the process; Sasha, a middle-class New England girl, has married into the Brooklyn Heights family, and finds herself cast as the arriviste outsider; and Georgiana, the baby of the family, has fallen in love with someone she can't have, and must decide what kind of person she wants to be.
Hello Beautiful by Ann Napolitano – William Waters grew up in a house silenced by tragedy, where his parents could hardly bear to look at him, much less love him – so when he meets the spirited and ambitious Julia Padavano in his freshman year of college, it's as if the world has lit up around him. With Julia comes her family, as she and her three sisters are inseparable: Sylvie, the family's dreamer, is happiest with her nose in a book; Cecelia is a free-spirited artist; and Emeline patiently takes care of them all. With the Padavanos, William experiences a newfound contentment; every moment in their house is filled with loving chaos.
