September New Books Megalist: The Sequel!

Forgive me, I know it isn’t the first Tuesday of the month, but there were so many wonderful titles out today, I couldn’t resist another big list. There are just so many incredible books to choose from. You can hear about a few of these books on this week’s episode of the All the Books! Rebecca and I talked about amazing books we loved, such as Little Fires Everywhere, The Twelve-Mile Straight, and Braving the Wilderness.

Sponsored by Lies She Told by USA Today bestselling author Cate Holahan.

Liza Cole has one month to write the thriller that could land her back on the bestseller list. Meanwhile, she’s struggling to start a family, but her husband is distracted by the disappearance of his best friend, Nick. As stresses start to weigh her down, Liza escapes into writing her latest heroine, Beth.

Beth suspects her husband is cheating on her while she’s home caring for their newborn. Angry and betrayed, she aims to catch him in the act and make him pay. But before she realizes what she’s doing, she’s tossing the body of her husband’s mistress into the East River.

Then, the lines between fiction and reality blur. Nick’s body is dragged from the East River, and Liza’s husband is arrested for his murder. Before her deadline is up, Liza will have to face up to the truths about the people around her. If she doesn’t, the end of her heroine’s story could be the end of her own.
