Victoria’s September Recommendations

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

Victoria says: This is my top pick for the month and the year. It reminds me a bit like the Desperate Housewives TV show: drama-filled! I could not stop reading. I was so shocked by the ending; I didn’t see it coming.

“Follows three mothers, each at a crossroads, and their potential involvement in a riot at a school trivia night that leaves one parent dead in what appears to be a tragic accident, but which evidence shows might have been premeditated.” – from the catalog

Dear Daughter by Elizabeth Little
“Former “It Girl” Janie Jenkins is sly, stunning, and fresh out of prison. Ten years ago, at the height of her fame, she was incarcerated for the murder of her mother, a high-society beauty known for her good works and rich husbands. Now, released on a technicality, Janie makes herself over and goes undercover, determined to chase down the one lead she has on her mother’s killer. The only problem? Janie doesn’t know if she’s the killer she’s looking for.

A gripping, electrifying debut novel with an ingenious and like-it-or-not sexy protagonist, Dear Daughter follows every twist and turn as Janie unravels the mystery of what happened the night her mother died—whatever the cost.” – from the catalog

The Supernatural Enhancements by Edgar Cantero

“When twenty-something A., the European relative of the Wells family, inherits a beautiful, yet eerie, estate set deep in the woods of Point Bless, Virginia, it comes as a surprise to everyone–including A. himself. After all, he never knew he had a “second cousin, twice removed” in America, much less that his eccentric relative had recently committed suicide by jumping out of the third floor bedroom window–at the same age and in the same way as his father had before him . . .

Axton House is haunted… they know it…but the presence of a ghost is just the first of a series of disturbing secrets they slowly uncover.

Told vividly through a series of journal entries, cryptic ciphers, recovered security footage, and letters to a distant Aunt Liza, Edgar Cantero has written an absorbing, kinetic and highly original supernatural adventure with classic horror elements that introduces readers to a deviously sly and powerful new voice.” – from the catalog
