I was a teenager when James Cameron's TITANIC came out, so I have a soft spot for anything having to do with that doomed ship.  Annie Hebley was a maid on the Titanic and one of its few survivors.  Several years later, Annie takes a job on its sister ship, The Britannic (recently refitted as a hospital ship), as a nurse during WWI where she encounters another Titanic survivor, Mark Fletcher.  Prior to the Titanic's sinking, Annie, Mark and other passengers believed something might have been haunting the ship ---- and now it may be haunting the Britannic.  In alternating sections, Katsu takes you from ship to ship --- and the dread only increases. - Emily

Published: Dutton - July 14th, 2020

This is the first thriller by local author, Jen Waite and I'm so excited to see what she does next.  A last minute weekend trip to a cabin in the woods in the mid-winter quickly becomes a weekend of terror when Anne, her daughter and her mother are kidnapped on a mountain trail.  What I love most about this novel is how atmospheric Jen's writing is.  You can smell the cold winter air, you can hear the snap of the twigs and you can feel the roaring fire.   You're right there every step of the way ---- whether you want to be or not. - Emily

A cheeky nod to the Scooby Doo gang - a foursome of former "meddling kids" meets up again years later in various forms - ghost, human, and you bet there is a dog - to begrudgingly face off against the horrors thought to be dispelled in their youth. Meddling Kids is a deliciously spooky and humorous nod to those friendships and experiences that bind us together and stay with us for good. - Becca

Published: Back Bay Books - January 8th, 2019

Eerie and haunting, THE POWER will stay with you long after you finish the last page. A terrifying look at what can happen when one group holds all the power. Perhaps a little close to home in these times when we are grappling with the imbalance of power in our own nation, but a novel not to be missed regardless. - Becca
