This buzzy debut novel proves dreams really can come true. Danler was working as a waitress when she sold Sweetbitter, which follows Tess, 22 years old, newly arrived in New York City, working in a Manhattan hotspot. As Tess attempts to navigate the landmines of New York, she finds herself in a love triangle with a worldly waitress and a bad boy bartender. Her first year in New York and all its requisite experiences—love, heartbreak, friendship and lust—make this a riveting, coming-of-age novel to remember.
A dark yet funny story about a family with many skeletons in the closet. Charlotte is a 29 year old woman who rarely leaves her home, an estate in Connecticut that was owned by her now deceased stepfather. Nobody would ever guess she’s a famous blogger on the internet. But with one of her stepbrothers getting married, the entire blended family comes together. Chaos ensues and the outcome is not like anything you would expect.
Burton’s new Forgotten Files series begins with this twisty (and twisted) suspense thriller. State trooper Riley Tatum has no memory of the brutal attack where she was drugged and kidnapped as a teenager. But dark memories start to return when a teen prostitute is found murdered in very similar circumstances. Has this sadistic killer returned to finish what he started?
