Bress ‘n’ nyam! (Bless and eat!)

Laura Dave’s new novel, The Last Thing He Told Me, was just picked as a Reese Witherspoon Book Club Selection, sending it rocketing up the bestseller lists. But before that, it was an IndieNext Pick, and a favorite among southern indie booksellers:

Propulsive, heart-warming thriller. Yep, you read that right. A ten on the can’t-put-down scale, with gorgeous, complex characters. Devoured in one sitting; very satisfying. — June Wilcox, M. Judson, booksellers & storytellers in Greenville, South Carolina

I found I couldn’t put it down. With relatable characters and an interesting plot, it will be a perfect choice for summer’s vacation – or staycation. –Lia Lent, Wordsworth Books in Little Rock, Arkansas

Get ready for a fabulous exploration of motherhood, loyalty and love, all packed in a tense thriller. Bravo! — Pam Crawford, Bookmiser
