The classic tale reborn as an inspiring runaway slave thriller!

Young slave George Harris is a self-taught inventor with an owner who despises him. Slavery has forced him apart from his wife, Eliza, and their three-year-old son Harry, who belong to another owner. George dreams of the day he can escape north and work for his family’s freedom, but no amount of careful planning could prepare him for what came next.

When Eliza learns that her owner plans to sell Harry to pay off a debt, she runs north at once. George must escape too, if he has any hope of finding his family before the slave hunters do. They’ll all travel to Canada, a journey that’s treacherous, long, and often deadly. Will George and Eliza find their freedom or die trying?

Burning Uncle Tom’s Cabin is the first book in a series that nimbly reimagines Harriet Beecher Stowe’s original novel and it includes nerve-wracking suspense, memorable characters, heartbreaking cruelty, and a compelling story told through powerful and refreshing writing.

“Meet the new Bridget Jones.” (PopSugar Daily)

“A light and funny read. If you’ve ever felt like your life wasn’t going the way you’d planned, then you can’t help but connect with Waverly’s tale.” (Becky Lejeune for Bookbitch.com)

Anything can look perfect on paper. When her fiance calls off their wedding at the last minute, Waverly Bryson wonders if her life will ever turn out the way she thought it would…or should. Her high-powered job in sports PR? Not so perfect. Her relationship with her dad? Far from it. Her perfect marriage? Enough said. To keep sane, Waverly makes a habit of jotting down “Honey Notes,” her own brand of self-deprecating wisdom and a pipe-dream for a line of greeting cards.

As Waverly stumbles back into the dating scene (no stalkers or jean shorts, please), her personal and professional lives threaten to collide. Perfect on Paper reminds us that everyone has a bad date (or twelve), and that everyone eventually needs a best friend to tell them,“Honey, you are not alone.”

Future viewing audiences have become totally desensitized to violence and entirely dependent on sensation to escape their boring workaday lives–an addiction nurtured by the media with graphic portrayals of war and crime and with so-called reality programming. Now, TV execs in pursuit of the only things they care about–higher ratings and bigger paychecks–have created the ultimate reality show: Seven people, each bearing the scars of his or her past, are deposited on an island in the middle of Lake Superior. Given some bare necessities and the promise of $400,000 each if they can endure, the three women and four men risk death by starvation or freezing as the Great Lakes winter approaches. The island is wired for sound, and flying drones provide the video feed, so everything the contestants do and say is broadcast worldwide. Their seven-month ordeal is entirely unscripted, they can’t ask for help or they forfeit the prize, and as far as the network is concerned–the fewer survivors the better.

A chance encounter sparks an unrelenting web of lies in this stunning new psychological thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Good Girl, Mary Kubica 

She sees the teenage girl on the train platform, standing in the pouring rain, clutching an infant in her arms. She boards a train and is whisked away. But she can’t get the girl out of her head… 

Heidi Wood has always been a charitable woman: she works for a nonprofit, takes in stray cats. Still, her husband and daughter are horrified when Heidi returns home one day with a young woman named Willow and her four-month-old baby in tow. Disheveled and apparently homeless, this girl could be a criminal—or worse. But despite her family’s objections, Heidi invites Willow and the baby to take refuge in their home. 

Heidi spends the next few days helping Willow get back on her feet, but as clues into Willow’s past begin to surface, Heidi is forced to decide how far she’s willing to go to help a stranger. What starts as an act of kindness quickly spirals into a story far more twisted than anyone could have anticipated.
