The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney
When three siblings learn that a big chunk of their shared inheritance was used to get their charismatic but reckless brother out of trouble, does the unexpected combination of money, dysfunction and secret meetings bring this family closer or separate it further? Oddly funny at times, The Nest will take you to your uncomfortable zone, not because it feels bad but because you know it.
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
This is a page-turner that focuses on three women – the effortless beauty, the super-mom with the killer art projects and the new girl who doesn’t quite fit in – who forge a special friendship as they leave their kids at kindergarten for the first time. When something terrible and unexpected happens at the parents’ trivia party, will their friendship stand the test? This one has a surprise you won’t see coming!
The Guest Room by Chris Bohjalian
When Richard hosts a bachelor party for his younger brother – an evening of seemingly innocent debauchery – he doesn’t expect it to spiral into a nightmare of confusion, murder, the Russian mafia, guilt and paranoia. Filled with intrigue and the heartbreaking issue of human trafficking, this fast-paced novel will take you on a ride that you never wanted to go on but can’t quite step off.
