Then enjoy a free preview of each novel.This Is Your Life, Harriet Chance! by Jonathan Evison On Sale September 8, 2015 “Once again, Jonathan Evison dazzles . . . This Is Your Life, Harriet Chance! is as sweet as it is inventive, profound as it is hilarious, unflinching as it is bighearted.” —Maria Semple, author of Where’d You Go, BernadetteThe Muralist by B. A. Shapiro On Sale November 3, 2015 “Shapiro once again pens the art world into vivid, sensual life. If you liked The Art Forger, you're going to love The Muralist!” —Lisa Genova, author of Still AliceThe Last September by Nina de Gramont On Sale September 15, 2015 “A moody murder mystery . . . De Gramont's latest boasts lovely, understated writing, sharply drawn settings--Boulder, Amherst, and Cape Cod--and, once again, characters who are irresistibly attractive, flawed, and dangerous . . . But it is also an emotionally intense study of how a transcendent love becomes a fraying marriage . . . A fine literary whodunit from an accomplished storyteller.” —Kirkus ReviewsAnd West Is West by Ron Childress On Sale October 13, 2015 “This compelling debut novel, which won the PEN/Bellwether Prize for Socially Engaged Fiction, dramatically examines the insidious role unrestrained technology plays in the moral and ethical corruption of people, institutions, and government . . . This is an excellent, suspenseful story.” —Publishers WeeklyOnly Love Can Break Your Heart by Ed Tarkington On Sale January 5, 2016 “Kept me turning pages enthralled. Only Love Can Break Your Heart is part The Graduate, part southern gothic dysfunctional family, part Edisto, part The Moviegoer. It’s all Ed Tarkington, though. Funny, desperate, sad, tender, suspenseful, intelligent, insightful, and full of nothing but heart, heart, heart.” —George Singleton, author of Between Wrecks  The Fall of Princes by Robert Goolrick On Sale August 25, 2015 “A heart-wrenching, beautiful, darkly comic, deeply necessary tale that stuns again and again with razor-sharp prose and glittering wit. Goolrick is, without question, one of the greatest storytellers of our time.” —Téa Obreht, author of The Tiger's WifeCover art by Melinda Beck

    Now on the cusp of her first shift, Aspen is hunted down by cool, laid back Brad, and impetuous, hot-headed Chase, who both desperately hope they're the fated mate of this deliciously curvy girl.
