Wendy Walker, author of The Night Before

Devastated by the end of her last relationship, Laura Lochner fled her Wall Street job and New York City apartment for her sister’s home in the Connecticut suburb where they both grew up. Though still haunted by the tragedy that’s defined her entire life, Laura is determined to take one more chance on love with a man she’s met on an Internet dating site. Rosie Ferro has spent most of her life worrying about her troubled sister. Fearless but fragile, Laura has always walked an emotional tightrope.

The Night Before by Wendy Walker

May 2019

THE NIGHT BEFORE by Wendy Walker has a striking cover, a tension-filled plot and some great twists. Two sisters, Rosie and Laura, live very different lives. Rosie is settled, whereas Laura lives life more on the edge, running from some things in her past. Laura recently has moved back in with Rosie after going through a relationship breakup. One night, she goes on a blind date with someone she met on a dating website and does not come home. What happened the night before? While Laura is fearful, she also is reckless and is nothing like her suburbanite sister, Rosie, who knows just how much trouble Laura can get into.

Week of April 27, 2020

Paperback releases for the week of April 27th include BLUE MOON by Lee Child, which finds Jack Reacher coming to the aid of an elderly couple…and confronting his most dangerous opponents yet; ELEVATOR PITCH, an edge-of-your-seat thriller from Linwood Barclay that does for elevators what Psycho did for showers and Jaws did for the beach --- a heart-pounding tale in which a series of disasters paralyzes New York City with fear; Joshilyn Jackson's NEVER HAVE I EVER, a twisting novel of domestic suspense in which a group of women play a harmless drinking game that escalates into a war of dark pasts; and THE FAMILY NEXT DOOR by true-crime writer John Glatt, which tells the devastating story of the Turpins --- a seemingly normal family whose dark secrets would shock and captivate the world.
