Linda recommends

Linda's first go-round at the Owl was fall 2005 - winter 2007. After a hiatus for other work, she came back in January of 2011, and she's loved every minute of it! Her favorite genres have been legal suspense and books with well-defined, many-layered characters. Since reading Devil in the White City and Unbroken, she's become a big fan of historical writing as well. She feels privileged to be able to work with the wonderful staff at The Owl and to have the opportunity to interact with the faithful and neophyte customers who walk through our door.

Linda says: A riveting thriller debut! Jean has considered herself fortunate to have met and married Glen and has prided herself on being the perfect wife, going so far as to pretend that her husband is beyond reproach. She keeps his secrets for him until it is no longer necessary due to circumstances beyond her control, and then she finds herself sought after by journalists eager to know how she stayed with him for so long. Barton does a masterful job of shifting perspective, from one character to another, and the story and its secrets will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page.

Linda says: Carla Buckley has written another multi-layered novel of secrets, suspicion and sorrow. After a fire in their dorm room that killed one student, cousins Rory and Arden lie unconscious in the burn unit at the hospital. While the police search for answers, the girls' parents struggle to make sense of the situation while trying to salvage their own failing relationships. Supporting each other in the midst of the tragedy proves to be difficult as secrets threaten to tear them apart.
