Don’t Believe It by Charlie Donlea

Like all of Donlea’s books, Don’t Believe It is a fast-paced and incredibly smart read. A story about a grisly, decades-old murder and a filmmaker trying to exonerate a woman she believes has been wrongly imprisoned for 10 years. Donlea knows how to hook readers from the get-go with a chilling opening scene that sets the tone of the rest of the book. It’s impossible to put down.


Rust & Stardust by T. Greenwood

I am a tremendous T. Greenwood fan, and am continuously blown away by her versatility as an author. As far as I know, this is the first time she’s done true crime before, and she does it beautifully. Rust & Stardust is told from the perspective of a young kidnapping victim, 11-year-old Sally Horner, and details two years of captivity and abuse at the hands of a much older man. Rust & Stardust is many things: eloquent, terrifying and bold. A must for any reading list!


You Were Always Mine by Nicole Baart

There are so many reasons I love this book. Baart has a knack for combining compelling mysteries with an emotional element that binds me to her characters. In You Were Always Mine, she takes a look at the dark side of adoption, which was as eye-opening and heartbreaking for me as the story was frightening. Look for it in October!
