Dangerous Lies by Becca Fitzpatrick (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Sunday, Nov 29, 2015 at 4:43pm

Stella Gordon’s life is a lie. She does not belong in Thunder Basin, Nebraska. As the star witness in a murder trial against a drug dealer, Stella is now in the Witness Protection Program. The small town locals can never know who she really is. Not even Chet Falconer, the one boy who makes her want to reveal her true self. She knows that telling the truth will only bring violence to this safe haven. Despite how hard Stella tries to stay under the radar, danger is fast-approaching. Criminals have a way of getting rid of witnesses, and Stella may have made the one mistake that could lead the cold-blooded men hunting for her right to her doorstep.

Dangerous Lies is packed with all the suspense and thrilling qualities that you would think it would have. Becca Fitzpatrick does not disappoint with her new entry into a more thriller oriented genre with this new book. Although, Stella herself is hard to warm up to. Her attitude is stubborn, and at times quite rude and selfish. The writing in this book is great, as you would expect from Becca Fitzpatrick, but the attitude and aura of the main character made it hard to completely enjoy this novel. Read this if you're intrigued about the new turn in Fitzpatrick's writing. However if you love her Hush Hush series and really want to hold onto that, I suggest just re-reading that series.

A note on holiday orders

by Tyler Vitt - Wednesday, Nov 25, 2015 at 8:06pm

The holidays are coming, and so are the deadlines for special ordering books.

As a rule of thumb, we consider December 10th as the last day we can order a book and have it arrive before Christmas. We will still gladly take orders after this date, but we cannot guarantee they will arrive before Christmas.

Nevertheless, we strongly encourage you to get in touch with us as soon as possible with orders you intend to give as gifts. Some publishers take longer to ship, and weather is always a concern this time of year.

Please contact your nearest McNally Robinson bookstore if you have any questions, or if you'd like to place an order. We can set up orders in person, over the phone, via email, or through our web store.

Young Widows Club by Alexandra Coutts (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Tuesday, Nov 24, 2015 at 9:20am

Young Widows Club is about teenage widow, Tamsen. After getting in trouble following her husband's death, she is forced to attend a young widow's support group.

I liked this book. I thought all of the characters were quirky and interesting. I liked how Tam's relationships with the other characters developed. I also found the parts detailing how Tam grew up to be interesting. Overall, I enjoyed reading this book very much.
