Hot Pick

For Better and Worse

by Margot Hunt

 

 

Synopsis:

On their first date back in law school, Natalie and Will Clarke bonded over drinks, dinner and whether they could get away with murder. Now married, they’ll put the latter to the test when an unchecked danger in their community places their son in jeopardy. Working as a criminal defense attorney, Nat refuses to rely on the broken legal system to keep her family safe. She knows that if you want justice…you have to get it yourself.

Shocked to discover Nat’s taken matters into her own hands, Will has no choice but to dirty his, also. His family is in way too deep to back down now. He’s just not sure he recognizes the woman he married. Nat’s always been fiercely protective, but never this ruthless or calculating. With the police poking holes in their airtight plan, what will be the first to fall apart: their scandalous secret—or their marriage?

 

Why?

Hunt wastes no time jumping right into this wildly thrilling story about a mom desperate to protect her son, even if that means turning to murder. Natalie truly believes that she can get away with this heinous crime, but when the carpet is swept from under her feet, her and her family’s lives are turned upside-down. Trust is in question between Natalie and her husband Will, and hope that their happy life together is in tatters. Praised as the best thriller of the year by Book of the Month, this book is sure to keep your hair on end and throw you into a nonstop rollercoaster ride.

 

 

Coffee Shop Read

Regretting You

by Colleen Hoover

 

Synopsis:

Morgan Grant and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Clara, would like nothing more than to be nothing alike.

Morgan is determined to prevent her daughter from making the same mistakes she did. By getting pregnant and married way too young, Morgan put her own dreams on hold. Clara doesn’t want to follow in her mother’s footsteps. Her predictable mother doesn’t have a spontaneous bone in her body.

With warring personalities and conflicting goals, Morgan and Clara find it increasingly difficult to coexist. The only person who can bring peace to the household is Chris—Morgan’s husband, Clara’s father, and the family anchor. But that peace is shattered when Chris is involved in a tragic and questionable accident. The heartbreaking and long-lasting consequences will reach far beyond just Morgan and Clara.

While struggling to rebuild everything that crashed around them, Morgan finds comfort in the last person she expects to, and Clara turns to the one boy she’s been forbidden to see. With each passing day, new secrets, resentment, and misunderstandings make mother and daughter fall further apart. So far apart, it might be impossible for them to ever fall back together.

 

Why?

New York Times Bestseller Colleen Hoover is at her best in this emotionally hard-hitting story that shares a genuine and struggling relationship between mother and daughter. Better have a box of Kleenex by your side because this one is definitely a tear-jerker! With high hopes for each character to find their own happiness, Hoover’s newest release is a beautiful story that teaches us that sometimes the most complicated circumstances can turn out perfectly okay if you remember to love. As sappy as this may seem, the book is nothing like that at all. Raw, true, and full of emotion, Regretting You can give us what we really need in the darkest of time⁠—a good cry. Booklist echoes praise for Hoover’s book stating, “There is plenty of trademark Hoover emotion and surprises in this engrossing read…This twisting novel will instigate excellent book discussions about regrets and second chances.”

Why?

Winter is here! And what perfect timing for this in-depth look as Game of Thrones photographer Helen Soan shares, documents from the entirety of filmmaking from season 1 to 8. As the behind-the-scenes photographer, Sloan had free reign to roam around studios, offices, and more interestingly, the beautiful set locations in person! She shares that and more in this coffee table book that really is the perfect gift for any GoT fan. Even as frustrating as the final season was, there is no doubt beauty and artistic perfection with the cinematography, set design, clothing design, and well everything else outside of the story’s end. Screen Rant has said it the best, The Photography of Game of Thrones is “[a] wonderful look into not just the characters, but the sheer artistry behind creating a series as epic as this one.”
