As we prepare our summer reading list, here are the new releases that we can’t wait to add to our beach bag!
Jennifer Weiner has long been one of our favorite beach reads and we’re excited to check out her latest novel. Allison Weiss is living the dream—the handsome husband, cute daughter, great job and a beautiful home. But if everything is so perfect, why does she feel the need to pop a Percocet…most days. Is it really pain management or escaping from a cold husband and a difficult daughter? Adding to her woes, she is dealing with a father who has Alzheimer’s and a mother who is falling apart. But when does a harmless habit become an addiction?
Private investigator Kathleen Stone is trailing a cheating spouse, and with the help of her drag queen friend and the best wigmaker in New York, she’s sure she can’t be discovered. Until the cheating spouse is found dead from foul play—and Kathleen worries that her past as an undercover cop is catching up to her. Teaming up with her former coworkers from the NYPD, she’s in a race to catch a killer…before she herself is caught.
The advance word for Owen’s debut novel has been stellar, and we are so eager to finally get our hands on a copy!
