I am so excited about this month’s picks! There are some good ones lined up.
- The Red Hunter, Lisa Unger. (Summary from Goodreads). Claudia Bishop’s perfect life fell apart when the aftermath of a brutal assault left her with a crumbling marriage, a newborn daughter, and a constant sense of anxiety about the world around her. Now, looking for a fresh start with a home restoration project and growing blog, Claudia takes on a crumbling old house—one that unbeknownst to her has an ugly history and may hide long buried secrets.
For Zoey Drake the defining moment of her childhood was the horrific home invasion murder of her parents. Years later, she has embraced the rage that fuels her. Training in the martial arts has made her strong and ready to face the demons from the past—and within.
Strangers to each other, and walking very different paths in the wake of trauma, these two women are on a collision course—because Zoey’s past nightmare and Claudia’s dreams for her future take place in the very same house. As Zoey seeks justice, and Claudia seeks peace, both will confront the monsters at the door that are the most frightening of all.
- The Simplicity of Cider, Amy Reichert. All Sana Lund wants is an unassuming life, to work the apple orchard and make cider. All Issac Banks wants is to shield his son from his disturbed mother. When the two meet, Issac finds a safe haven, and Sana finds the help she needs, friendship and love. When outside forces threaten the orchard, can they work together to save it?
