Welcome back from the holidays! We can’t think of a better way to start the New Year than by reading a new collection of books!
Check out Bookstr’s Three to Read, the three books we’ve picked for you to read this week!
by J.T. Ellison
Goode girls don’t lie…
Perched atop a hill in the tiny town of Marchburg, Virginia, The Goode School is a prestigious prep school known as a Silent Ivy. The boarding school of choice for daughters of the rich and influential, it accepts only the best and the brightest. Its elite status, long-held traditions and honor code are ideal for preparing exceptional young women for brilliant futures at Ivy League universities and beyond.
But a stranger has come to Goode, and this ivy has turned poisonous.
In a world where appearances are everything, as long as students pretend to follow the rules, no one questions the cruelties of the secret societies or the dubious behavior of the privileged young women who expect to get away with murder.
When a popular student is found dead, the truth cannot be ignored. Rumors suggest she was struggling with a secret that drove her to suicide.
But look closely…because there are truths and there are lies, and then there is everything that really happened.
Ash, an orphan, is the new girl at an elite girl-only boarding school called The Goode school. She realizes that the only thing that the girls there pretend to follow the rules. So, when a body is found hanging from a tree, a lot of rumors spread, making it difficult to tell the truth from the lie. This psychological thriller will have you hooked from the first page! New York Journal of Books glorifies Ellison’s book stating, “J.T. Ellison skillfully unwinds a complex tale of lies, deception, and murder spiced up with backstory and well-fleshed out characters.”

by Katie Ruggle
Cara Pax never wanted to be a bounty hunter. She’s happy to leave chasing criminals and tackling skips to her sisters. But if she wants her dreams of escaping the family business to come true, she’s got one last job to finish… Only problem is, she doesn’t think her bounty is guilty.
Henry Kavenski is a man with innocence to prove. When he realizes that Cara believes him, he’ll do anything to keep her out of harm’s way. Escaping criminals and dodging cops might not be the best time to fall in love, but Henry and Cara won’t give up, not when there’s a chance at a new life ahead―if they can survive the fall.
Bounty hunting isn’t something Cara wants to do. To get herself out of this mess, she takes on one last job. However, she believes that her bounty, Henry, is actually innocent. So, what happens when you fall in love at the wrong time? With all the cops and criminals chasing Cara, will she and Henry survive this mess and get a chance to start a new life together? Sit back and relax with your cup of coffee because you’re in for a suspenseful romantic read! Library Journal praises the book saying, “An unpredictable, high-octane action adventure tale. This fast-paced romance is laced with humor and a bit of heat.”
