Check out some of our newest arrivals!


  • Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson
    "An intriguingly fresh look at the amnesia-focused psychological thriller.... A captivating and highly suspenseful read, populated with believable characters who lead the reader through a taut, well-constructed plot." —Library Journal
  • Before Versailles by Karleen Koen
    "Following solidly in the footsteps of Dumas, Koen reveals independent-spirited Louise to be a modern heroine in period costume, and, with her focus on the time just before Louis becomes the unrivaled Sun King, she finds the era ripe for intrigue and romance, not to mention possible sequels." —Publishers Weekly
  • Butterfly Cabinet by Bernie McGill coming soon!
    " exquisite series of painful revelations… McGill easily recreates the lives of the Castle's owners and servants and the intricate connections between them.

  • Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin

  • In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin by Erik Larson

  • Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything by Joshua Foer
    "His passionate and deeply engrossing book... is a resounding tribute to the muscularity of the mind... In the end, [it] reminds us that though brain science is a wild frontier and the mechanics of memory little understood, our minds are capable of epic achievements." —New York Times Book Review
