Above All Things

Above All Things by Tanis Rideout

We love historical fiction and can’t wait to dig into this debut novel that takes place both in 1924 England and along the peaks of Mount Everest. George Mallory is embarking on his third expedition of Everest while, at home, his wife Ruth is forced to wait for news that will change her life forever. We’ve heard it is beautifully written and filled with adventure, love and tragedy.

Airtight

Airtight by David Rosenfelt

How far would you go to save a loved one? That’s the question policeman Luke Somers is forced to answer after he successfully convicts Steven Gallagher for the murder of a prominent judge. Steven’s brother Chris knows he’s innocent, and he quickly makes sure that Luke’s own brother will die if Luke doesn’t clear Steven’s name. Can Luke find the real killer before both of them end up dead? It’s a dangerous cat and mouse game in this action-packed page-turner from David Rosenfelt.

Vampires in the Lemon Grove

Vampires in the Lemon Grove by Karen Russell

Every now and then comes along a collection of short stories that are so sharp and powerfully told that we just have to get our hands on a copy. Among Karen Russell’s eccentric characters are a teenager who communicates with the universe through talismanic objects, a massage therapist who has the power to heal through a war veteran’s tattoos, and, of course, vampires in a lemon grove who must quench their thirst for blood. These stories will stay with you long after you finish reading the final page.

It’s vintage Collins at her sudsy best.
