Stillhouse Lake by Rachel Caine
Gwen Proctor changed her name and her life when her husband was revealed to be a serial killer. For most books, that alone would be enough of plot to fill 300+ pages, but Rachel Caine makes that her leaping-off point for a book — and a series — that has won over readers searching for a can’t-put-down thriller. Gwen moves herself and her kids to remote Stillhouse Lake to try to rebuild her life, but when a dead body is found and threatening letters arrive, Gwen must defend her family once again from the evil that stalks them. Stillhouse Lake has a 4.5 average star rating from more than 12,000 customers, and books two and three in the series are also available in Kindle Unlimited. But there’s more good news! Book 4, Bitter Falls, releases on January 21, 2020.
Regretting You by Colleen Hoover
Colleen Hoover’s novels frequently straddle the line between heartfelt romance and family drama, offering the best of both worlds. Her latest, Regretting You, again delivers a winner, with a story that’s vulnerable, genuine, and emotionally fulfilling. After she got pregnant at 17 and married her fun-loving boyfriend, Morgan put her future on hold to raise their daughter — a choice that Morgan has been satisfied with until recently. Now Morgan’s teenage daughter, Clara, likes a boy of dubious background, Morgan’s sister has just had a baby, and Morgan wants to pay attention to her own dreams for once. Then a fatal accident sends shockwaves through the family, tearing at the bonds between Clara and Morgan. Hoover clearly understands the push and pull of even the best mother-daughter relationships, evoking empathy for both women and the mistakes they make as they struggle to reconcile the past and build a new future. Regretting You was named by the Amazon Books editors as one of the top 10 best new books of December 2019.
The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur
Rupi Kaur's subtle yet powerful volume of poetry will more than satisfy her readers who have clamored for more since the debut of her best-selling collection Milk & Honey. Split into five movements — wilting, falling, rooting, rising, blooming — Kaur’s poems glide up from the depths of heartbreak and hurt to embrace the strength and joy that can flower on the other side of hardship. The Sun and Her Flowers has a 4.6 average star rating from more than 2,000 customers.
Winter World by A.G. Riddle
Sci-fi thriller master A. G. Riddle lights a match to a new apocalyptic series in which an ice age is rolling across the planet, threatening humanity. Two people — the commander of the International Space Station and a wrongfully imprisoned scientist — must join forces to not only survive, but to save the rest of the world. Riddle excels in mixing speculative technology with crises that resonate today, and the oft-mentioned comparisons to Michael Crichton are well-earned. And if you love this novel, good news: The rest of this suspenseful adventure series is also currently available in Kindle Unlimited.
Never Say Never by Lisa Wingate
The thousands of readers who loved Before We Were Yours, about five children forced into the Tennessee Children’s Home Society orphanage in 1939, will be thrilled to learn that Lisa Wingate has been penning heartfelt fiction for years. In Never Say Never, a hurricane cancels a cruise and prompts senior citizen Donetta to bring her fellow evacuees back to her small town of Daily, Texas. Kai, who’s been drifting from town to town, finds a possible reason to put down roots with Daily’s high school coach, while Donetta wonders whether it’s time for her to pull up roots and expand her horizons. Wingate excels at feel-good, laugh-out-loud novels, and this one will warm readers’ hearts.
The Overdue Life of Amy Byler by Kelly Harms
After Amy’s husband goes on a trip to Hong Kong and, quite surprisingly, never comes back to her and their kids, Amy adjusts and rebuilds. When he returns three years later, asking for a summer with the kids, Amy takes the advice of her worried friends and goes to New York City, where she discovers a very different and exciting persona that has been buried under her “mom” identify for more than a decade. Does Amy have to choose between her two lives, or is there a way to have it all? Says Booklist, “Harms’s warm and witty novel will tickle fans of Where’d You Go, Bernadette and Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine.”
The Family Journal by Carolyn Brown
In This Year in Books, Amazon Charts recently named The Family Journal the fifth-most Unputdownable book of 2019. Kindle Books readers and Audible listeners blazed through Carolyn Brown’s novel (her hundredth!) faster than other similar books. Single mom Lily Anderson takes the drastic but necessary step of removing electronic devices from her rebellious children’s hands, and removing her children themselves to her rural hometown in Texas. With her new living arrangements comes a longtime tenant, high school teacher Mack Cooper. When Lily discovers a journal created by generations of women in her family, it might help her recognize that new love and new possibilities are right in front of her.
