I don't know about the rest of the world, but tomorrow New York City and the surrounding areas are supposed to be blanketed in at least a foot of snow. Which promises a very boring day stuck inside. Thus, here are a few exciting books that'll sweep you in and hold you close until it doesn't matter what the weather is like outside. So without further ado:
The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine: A mesmerizing debut psychological thriller about a coolly manipulative woman who worms her way into the lives of a wealthy “golden couple” from Connecticut, befriending the wife and seducing the husband to achieve the privileged life she wants. But expect multiple mind-blowing twists before you turn the last page. Request the egalley here.
Since We Fell by Dennis Lehane: Since We Fell follows Rachel Childs, a former journalist who, after an on-air mental breakdown, now lives as a virtual shut-in. In all other respects, however, she enjoys an ideal life with an ideal husband. Until a chance encounter on a rainy afternoon causes that ideal life to fray. Sucked into a conspiracy thick with deception, violence, and possibly madness, Rachel must find the strength within herself to conquer unimaginable fears and mind-altering truths. By turns heart- breaking, suspenseful, romantic, and sophisticated, Since We Fell is a novel of profound psychological insight and tension. It is Dennis Lehane at his very best.

Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz: From the author of Moriarty and Trigger Mortis, this fiendishly brilliant, riveting thriller weaves a classic whodunit worthy of Agatha Christie into a chilling, ingeniously original modern-day mystery. A missing last chapter from the final book in a bestselling mystery series leads an editor into a quest of her own to discover the secret links between the manuscript and real-life jealousy, greed, ruthless ambition, and murder.
