Discover this engrossing and emotional story of sisters and secrets from New York Times bestselling author Diane Chamberlain. Maya and Rebecca Ward are both accomplished physicians, but that’s where the sisters’ similarities end. As teenagers, they witnessed their parents’ murder, but it was Rebecca who saved Maya from becoming another of the gunman’s victims. The tragedy left Maya cautious and timid, settling for a sedate medical practice with her husband, Adam, while Rebecca became the risk taker. After a devastating hurricane hits the coast of North Carolina, Rebecca and Adam urge Maya to join them in the relief effort. To please her husband, Maya finally agrees. She loses herself in the care and transport of victims, but when her helicopter crashes into raging floodwaters, there appear to be no survivors. Forced to accept Maya is gone, Rebecca and Adam turn to one another—first for comfort, then in passion—unaware that, miles from civilization, Maya is injured and trapped with strangers she’s not certain she can trust. Away from the sister who has always been there to save her, now Maya must find the courage to save herself—unaware that the life she knew has changed forever. Originally published in 2010

New York Times bestselling author Marcia Muller is at her page-turning best in The Breakers, as she digs into a particularly disturbing corner of San Francisco's history--one that Sharon McCone may not escape alive. Sharon gets a request from her former neighbors the Curleys. Their usually dependable daughter, Chelle, hasn't answered their calls in over a week. Would Sharon check on her? Chelle, a house flipper, has been living at her latest rehab project: a Prohibition-era nightclub known as the Breakers, formerly a favored watering hole for San Francisco's elite, now converted into a run-down apartment building. There's something sinister about the quirky space, and Sharon quickly discovers why. Lurking in a secret room between two floors is a ghastly art gallery: photos and drawings of mass murderers, long ago and recent. Jack the Ripper. The Zodiac and Zebra killers. Charles Manson. What, an alarmed Sharon wonders, was Chelle doing in this chamber of horrors? And as Sharon begins to suspect that the ghoulish collage may be more than just a leftover relic of the Breakers' checkered history, her search for Chelle becomes a desperate race against the clock before a killer strikes again. "[Marcia Muller's] stories crackle like few others on the mystery landscape." -- San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle "Muller undoubtedly remains one of today's best mystery writers." -- Associated Press

No-one confesses to a murder they didn't commit. It has been twenty years since I last saw my brother. The day he was taken away for killing the boy I loved. I honestly didn't think I would see him again. Until now... I never made my peace with the fact my brother was a killer. But at least I don't think about it every minute of every day any more. Or about the boy he killed. The boy I kissed in a private, sheltered spot down by the lake during that long, hot summer, before everything changed. Now he has come home and claims he is innocent of the crime he was convicted of. I saw the blood on his hands. Heard him enter the guilty plea. I can't believe what he's saying could possibly be true. How can the last twenty years have all been a lie? What made him confess, if he wasn't guilty? Although, just for a moment, I see something in his eyes that reminds me of everything we used to be. Don't I owe it to us to finally learn the truth? But there are some people in our town who won't want us digging up the past. And I know, more than anyone, what a dangerous thing the truth can be. A dark, emotional story of a family left shattered by the legacy of a terrible crime and the question of how well we truly know the ones we love. Fans of Liane Moriarty and Diane Chamberlain will be totally gripped by this haunting and compelling read. "Wow, sooooo many emotions with this outstanding book... Awesome, Gripping, Frustrating, Heartbreaking!!!" NetGalley Reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Fast paced, very emotional, totally heart-breaking... I was just blown away!... An unforgettable story!" Heidi Lynn Book Reviews, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Wonderful from start to finish... Amazing. Stunning. Brilliant." Renita D'Silva, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Engaging, twisty and page turning... I could not put this book down.'

'I'm okay!' The bestselling author of The Anti-Cool Girl returns with a devastating, heartbreaking, brilliant, brave and laugh-out-loud funny memoir of telling lies and being on the brink... 'I had made it! All my dreams had come true. I had an operating fridge, I was doing brilliantly, and I had written the memoir to prove it. I even had online haters. I had conquered life at 30 and nothing was ever going to go wrong again!' It was all going so well for Rosie Waterland. Until it wasn't. Until, shockingly, something awful happened and Rosie went into agonising free fall. Until late one evening she found herself in a hospital emergency bed, trembling and hooked to a drip. Over the course of that long, painful night, she kept thinking about how ironic it was, that right in the middle of writing a book about lies, she'd ended up telling the most significant lie of all. A raw, beautiful, sad, shocking - and very, very funny - memoir of all the lies we tell others and the lies we tell ourselves. Praise for The Anti-Cool Girl: 'Hilarious, wise, gutsy, clear-eyed, devastating and uplifting. It's a marvel.' Richard Glover 'Waterland's writing is ... individual, wounded, brilliant and hilarious' Sydney Morning Herald 'If Augusten Burroughs and Lena Dunham abandoned their child in an Australian housing estate, she'd write this heartbreaking, hilarious book.' Dominic Knight, The Chaser The Anti-Cool Girl was shortlisted for the 2016 Indie Book Awards and for the 2016 ABIA Awards for Biography of the Year, and in addition was the Winner of the 2016 ABIA Awards People's Choice for the Matt Richell Award for New Writer of the Year
