Autumn Ushers in New Fall Novels

the-life-she-wantsHollywood may save its blockbusters for summer moviegoers, but savvy readers know that publishers often save their best books for fall.

That’s why October is the gateway month to the year’s biggest new books.

And October 2016 promises to be no different.

#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Robyn Carr is first out of the gate with her new women’s fiction novel The Life She Wants. In the aftermath of her financier husband’s suicide and the revelation that he funded a lavish NYC lifestyle at the expense of his clients, Emma Shay Compton is left with nothing and nobody, save for one dear bust estranged childhood friend. So you can forgive Emma for being surprised when Riley Kerrigan urges her to return home to Sonoma County. Emma only does so reluctantly — and because, well, she really has no other options. But news travels fast, and Emma soon finds she can’t escape her deadly-silencehusband’s reputation even in California nor survive without the help of the last friend she thought she’d ever ask for help: her former best friend. It’s an uneasy reunion, and both will need to learn to forgive if they are to have any hope of finding the life both desire.

A new novel by a favorite author is always welcome news—trumped only by a new series inspired by an author’s favorite concluding one. Such is the October gift of New York Times Bestselling Author Rebecca Zanetti.

Zanetti’s Sin Brothers Series recently concluded, but this month she kicks off a new series spinoff called Blood Brothers with the first book titled Deadly Silence. Following an escape from an abusive North Carolina boys home, Ryker Jones and two brothers of the heart — Heath and Denver — have kept a low profile while continuing to use their unique ability to find the lost to help the FBI in a serial killer case in Cisco, Wyoming. The three young men usually avoid connections outside their little trio but Ryker finds a friends-with-benefits arrangement with local paralegal Zara Remington to be unexpectedly evolving into something he can’t resist but that may put them all at risk.

Have you ever continued a relationship that you knew was no good for you? And if so, please give us a reason why.
