Arsenault, Emily


This debut novel has a delightful premise, crisply drawn characters, and a subtle sense of humor….the very definition of a promising debut.” Booklist on BROKEN TEAGLASS

Arsenault’s quirky, arresting debut….[is] an absorbing, offbeat mystery-meets-coming-of-age novel that’s as sweet as it is suspenseful.” Publishers Weekly on BROKEN TEAGLASS

From the critically acclaimed author of BROKEN TEAGLASS and IN SEARCH OF THE ROSE NOTES comes a brand new literary mystery for fans of Laura Lippman. Eliza Waters is most famous for her book Tammyland, a “honky-tonk Eat, Pray, Love” that is all about Tammy Wynett. When Eliza dies in a drug store shooting, everyone thinks it is a tragically botched mugging. Jen, Eliza’s best friend from college, had no reason to suspect foul play until she becomes Eliza’s literary executor. The manuscript Eliza was working on most recently is about an old child abuse case. The more Jen reads, the more sinister things become. From beyond the grave, Eliza’s writing opens up a different world to Jen. Eliza’s death seems suspicious and Jen soon finds herself in danger as well. William Morrow Paperbacks

Ballantine, Pip and Morris, Tee


The second in an exciting and fun Edwardian steampunk adventure series, featuring two secret agents from the “Ministry of Peculiar Occurences,” who investigate a startling conspiracy. In the vein of Gail Carriger’s bestselling SOULLESS and CHANGELESS, this is lush and intricate—a bit proper, and a bit naughty—with lots of adventure and period setting. The women in London are disappearing—young and old, rich and poor, and from all walks of society. The only thing they have in common is their belief that women deserve the vote. It’s up to the Ministry to find out why these women are vanishing, but agents Brooks and Braun have their own challenges. There’s a turncoat with nefarious plans within the Ministry itself, and the reappearance of an old flame means their growing friendship is threatened. Harper Voyager

In this imaginative and haunting debut, feisty young governess Charlotte Markham is employed at a dilapidated manor where she falls in love with her widower employer, Henry Darrow. While walking near a forest with the boys in her care she discovers a dark alternate world called The Ending, the place for things that cannot die. They encounter the deceased mother of the two boys, who has been waiting to pick up where she left off in the ominous House of Darkling—a wondrous, dangerous placed filled with enchantment, mystery and strange creatures that appear to be, but are not quite, human. They secretly visit the House of Darkling repeatedly until the two boys are trapped inside with their mother. Charlotte confides everything to Henry, and together they must decide whether to risk their lives in order to reclaim what has been ripped from them. A fantastic journey that is splendidly strange, frightening, and exhilarating. William Morrow Paperbacks

*KRAMPUS: The Yule Lord

Brom, author of the acclaimed illustrated novel THE CHILD THIEF, returns with a spectacular retelling of the story of Krampus, a.k.a. Black Peter, the dark enemy of Santa Claus. When failed songwriter Jesse witnesses a strange encounter on Christmas Eve—seven men cloaked in black beating up a man in a red suit and a sleigh, he steps in, but all of the strange denizens disappear, leaving only a large sack. He discovers that Santa (the interloper) has stolen the magical bag of Krampus, the ancient trickster demon who punishes evildoers. By picking it up, Jesse becomes one of Krampus’s followers. The former Yule Lord will stop at nothing to reclaim his holiday, and return wild magic to the desperately poor denizens of Boone County. But in every fairytale, a strange gift always has a price—and soon Jesse is pulled into a dark, wild adventure that will span the globe, from the beginnings of Krampus himself to his own search to save his daughter and his own broken dreams.

Caldwell, Megan


Vanity Fare made me laugh out loud…. It’s a fabulous book.”  New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries

For fans of Jennifer Crusie and Allison Pearson’s I Don’t Know How She Does It comes this clever, hilarious, heartbreaking and charming debut novel about a 40-year-old Brooklyn mother, recently divorced with a son, who starts writing copy for a bakery, discovers a knack for food-related literary puns, and becomes entangled in a love triangle.  Molly Hagan is overwhelmed and forty. Her husband left her for a younger, blonder woman six months ago, her six-year-old son is questioning her authority, she has to get a job, and then her broke and bitter mother moves in.  So what does Molly do? She doesn’t just roll over, as she has for the first 40 years of her life. Instead, Molly makes lists. Lots of them. Lists of ways she can push herself, things she would never do, things she is proud of, things she is not so proud of— all to get her confidence up  So she's not thinking of romance when an old friend offers her a job writing copy for a new bakery. But the sexy British pastry chef has other thoughts--and so does Molly when she meets the chef's intimidating business partner -- who also happens to have a secret that might prevent Molly from getting her own Happily Ever After.  Megan Cladwell is a contributor to Marie Claire magazine and a Daily Writer for Clear Channel's Premiere Radio rep service.  She is also the Community Manager for Heroes and Heartbreakers, a romance novel website.  William Morrow Paperbacks

Chopra, Deepak

*GOD: A Story of Revelation

Beloved author and teacher Deepak Chopra takes us on an enlightening journey through history as we come to understand God through the lives of our most celebrated saints and sages. From Socrates to Joan of Arc, Rumi to Baal Shem Tov, Thomas the Apostle to Einstein, God emerges in times of conflict and sheds divine light. While God’s wisdom was often ignored and very often betrayed, we witness first-hand how His presence and influence evolved over time and in so doing experience the great inrush of spirit that arrives and turns confusion and conflict into clarity and inspiration. In the end, GOD: A Story of Revelation is about our very human journey to know and understand the divine. Deepak Chopra is the founder of The Chopra Center for Wellbeing in Carlsbad, California, and is acknowledged as one of the master teachers of Eastern philosophy in the Western World. He has written more than fifty-five books and has been a bestselling author for decades with over a dozen titles on the New York Times bestseller lists, including BUDDHA, JESUS, MUHAMMAD and many others.

A deeply engrossing tale of love, family, friendship, and motherhood, Stiltsville is both an elegantly crafted work of art and a great read. Susanna Daniel is an extraordinary writer and Stiltsville is a beautiful book.” —Curtis Sittenfeld, author of Prep and American Wife on STILTSVILLE

A breathtaking exploration of the risks and rewards of attachment, set against the lush and tempestuous backdrop of Miami, Daniels brings to life the story of a woman who ultimately must face the unthinkable choice between her husband and young son.

de Jonge, Peter


Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as an “utterly irresistible heroine,” hard-living homicide detective Darlene O’Hara returns from Peter de Jonge’s first novel, SHADOWS STILL REMAIN, in this edgy noir thriller set on New York City’s Lower East Side. A nurse stops by the offices of Homicide South in Manhattan to report the confession of Gus Henderson, her elderly Alzheimer’s patient, a former junkie and petty criminal, who claims he murdered and buried a man in a park off Avenue B seventeen years ago. All signs point toward the man’s partner in crime as the victim—he’s been off the grid for exactly seventeen years. After threats from the presumed victim’s mother, the city reluctantly agrees to excavate the community garden where Henderson claimed to have buried the body. But it’s not her son they find buried beneath the willow tree. What they find is the skeleton of a ten-year-old boy, neatly dressed and buried ceremoniously with a comic book, a cd, some pot, and booze. O’Hara dives headlong into the city’s dark underbelly and is about to uncover a hidden, dangerous world of lost boys and girls. Peter de Jonge is the author of SHADOWS STILL REMAIN (2009), a Washington Post Book of the Year, and co-author, with James Patterson, of three books: Miracle on the 17th Green (Little, Brown, 1996), and the #1 New York Times bestsellers Beach Road (Little, Brown, 2003) and The Beach House (Little, Brown, 2006). He worked as a reporter at the Associated Press, and has been a contributing writer to the New York Times Magazine since 1986. His writing has appeared in Best American Sports Writing, National Geographic, New York magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, Details, and Manhattan, Inc. Harper

Dean, Debra


An unforgettable story of love, survival and the power of imagination in the most tragic circumstances. Elegant and poetic, the rare kind of book that you want to keep but you have to share.” - Isabel Allende on THE MADONNAS OF LENINGRAD

[A] heartfelt debut…[that] switches deftly between the siege and the present…[it is] admirably humane in its determination to restore the dignity Alzheimer’s strips away. What’s more, it largely avoids the sentimentality that mars so much writing about the old and infirm.” - New York Times Book Review on THE MADONNAS OF LENINGRAD

From the bestselling author of the critically acclaimed THE MADONNAS OF LENINGRAD comes the story of Xenia of St. Petersburg, a breathtaking novel of love and madness. Set against the unparalleled extravagance and artifice of 18th century Russia, a world of ice palaces and opera and masquerade balls, THE MIRRORED WORLD is the reimagined life of St. Xenia, one of Russia’s most beloved holy women. Narrated from the point of view of her younger cousin Dasha, THE MIRRORED WORLD follows the friends from their younger years in the lower nobility through the tragedy and madness that transforms Xenia into a revered angel of mercy to the poor and a controversial figure to the upper classes. At the age of 26, Xenia loses her first child, followed shortly thereafter by the death of her beloved husband, sending her into an excruciating, deep depression. After weeks in a trance-like state and still inconsolable, Xenia, in defiance of her family, begins giving away her money and possessions to the poor and homeless. As a soothsayer and healer, Xenia becomes famous throughout the city, perceived by many as a sharp rebuke to the lavish excesses of the court of the new empress, Catherine the Great. Richly told, THE MIRRORED WORLD is a moving historical epic that reimagines the transformation of a regular girl into one of history’s most treasured and mysterious saints. THE MADONNAS OF LENINGRAD was a huge success for us. It was #1 BookSense Pick, a National Bestseller, an ALA Notable Book of the Year and it was nominated for the Quill Awards book of the year.

Dietrich, William

EMERALD STORM: An Ethan Gage Adventure

Entertaining….Dietrich seamlessly blends historical figures such as Napoleon and Toussaint L’Ouverture, the liberator of Haiti, with fictional characters like Gage’s nemesis, renegade secret policeman Leon Martel, in this amusing swashbuckler.” -- Publishers Weekly

The book is a breathlessly exciting adventure, as fast paced as an Indiana Jones movie and just about as entertaining." Starred review Booklist

Acclaimed New York Times bestselling author William Dietrich delivers his fifth installment in the popular and bestselling Ethan Gage adventure series. The action races from the slopes of the Swiss Alps to the sultry tropics of the Caribbean, with a mysterious and magical Spanish treasure, the fate of England, and the first successful slave revolt in history hanging in the balance. Allied with his new wife, Astiza, Ethan Gage embarks in a desperate hunt in the isles of the Caribbean for the Lost Treasure of Montezuma, a legendary hoard that tradition says was saved and hidden from the Spanish conquistadors of Cortez. In pursuit are British agents who hope the gold will finance the black slave revolt in St. Dominique, or Haiti, robbing France of its richest colony. French agents are seeking the treasure for an even bigger prize: certain Aztec ornaments look like flying machines, and ruthless secret policeman Leon Martel dreams they could hold the key to a new weapon that could defeat Britain. THE TREASURE OF MONTEZUMA has William Dietrich’s trademark combination of humor, exotic geography, fascinating historical figures, and details of life at the dawn of the 19th century. Harper
