Dear Mrs. Bird
by AJ Pearce

The May Book Club Favorites pick is here! A charming, irresistible debut set in London during World War II, DEAR MRS. BIRD is the story of plucky Emmy Lake, who dreams of becoming a lady war correspondent but fumbles her way into a job as an assistant to a ferocious advice columnist instead. Her boss is very clear—any letters containing unpleasantness must go straight to the trash bin—but Emmy is unable to resist responding.

Her Pretty Face
by Robyn Harding

We’re anxiously waiting on Robyn Harding’s new provocative novel, THE ARRANGEMENT, and the best way to occupy ourselves is by revisiting one of her earlier works, HER PRETTY FACE. In this tense domestic drama, two women—stay-at-home mom Frances, wealthy and powerful Kate—share a deep friendship that will soon be threatened by dark, long-buried secrets, because one of these women is not who she seems. Her real name is Amber Kunik. And she’s a murderer.
