The Guest List– Lucy Foley On an island off the coast of Ireland, guests gather to celebrate two people joining their lives together as one. As the champagne is popped and the festivities begin, resentments and petty jealousies begin to mingle with the reminiscences and well wishes. The groomsmen begin the drinking game from their school days. The bridesmaid not-so-accidentally ruins her dress. The bride’s oldest (male) friend gives an uncomfortably caring toast. And then someone turns up dead. Who didn’t wish the happy couple well? And perhaps more important, why?

Layla- Colleen Hoover When Leeds meets Layla, he knows he’ll spend the rest of his life with her, until an unexpected attack leaves Layla fighting for her life. After weeks in the hospital, Layla recovers physically, but the emotional scarring has changed the woman Leeds fell in love with. To put their relationship back on track, Leeds whisks Layla away to a bed-and-breakfast. Upon arrival, Layla’s behavior takes a bizarre turn. Feeling distant from Layla, Leeds soon finds solace in Willow, another guest of the B&B with whom he forms a connection through their shared concerns. His decision to help Willow puts Leeds in direct conflict with Layla’s well-being. Leeds realizes he has to make a choice because he can’t help both of them. But if he makes the wrong choice, it could be detrimental for all of them.

Tell Me Lies- Carola Lovering Lucy Albright is far from her Long Island upbringing when she arrives on the campus of her small California college. Lucy embraces college life and all it has to offer.

Meanwhile, Stephen is determined to forget an incident buried in his past that, could ruin him. His single-minded drive for success extends to winning, and keeping, Lucy’s heart. Lucy knows there’s something about Stephen that isn’t to be trusted. Stephen knows Lucy can’t tear herself away. And their addicting entanglement will have consequences they never could have imagined.

The Last Sister- Kendra Elliot Years ago Emily Mills’ father was murdered, and she found his body in the backyard. Her younger sister, Madison, was asleep in her room. Her older sister, Tara, was out with friends. The tragedy drove their mother to suicide and Tara to leave town forever. The killer was caught. The case closed. Emily and Madison have tried to forget what happened that night, until an eerily similar murder brings it all back. It also brings FBI special agent Zander Wells to the town. As eager as he is to solve the brutal double slaying, he is just as intrigued with Emily’s and her sisters’ past. When more blood is shed, Zander suspects there’s a secret buried in this town no one wants unearthed.
