The Perfect Wife by JP Delaney - Fiction


Abbie awakens in a daze with no memory of who she is or how she landed in this unsettling condition. The man by her side claims to be her husband. He’s a titan of the tech world, the founder of one of Silicon Valley’s most innovative start-ups. He tells Abbie that she is a gifted artist, an avid surfer, a loving mother to their young son, and the perfect wife. He says she had a terrible accident five years ago and that, through a huge technological breakthrough, she has been brought back from the abyss. She is a miracle of science. 

Pretty Guilty Women by Gina LaManna - Fiction


A man is dead at the Banks wedding and four different women rush to offer confessions, each insisting that they committed the crime alone.  Why would they confess to the same murder? Only they know --- and they’re not telling. This page-turning novel explores the depths of friendship and the truths we love to ignore.

The Winemaker's Wife by Kristin Harmel - Fiction


Champagne, 1940: Inès and Michel, the owners of storied champagne house Maison Chauveau, begin hiding munitions for the Résistance when the Germans invade. Inès fears they’ll be exposed and the risk is even greater for Céline, the half-Jewish wife of Chauveau’s chef de cave. When Céline recklessly follows her heart in one desperate bid for happiness, and Inès makes a dangerous mistake with a Nazi collaborator, they risk the lives of those they love. Fast forward to New York, 2019. Liv Kent has just lost everything when her eccentric French grandmother shows up unannounced, insisting on a trip to France. When past and present finally collide, Liv finds herself on a road to salvation that leads right to the caves of the Maison Chauveau.
