Sensational Summer Reads
"If you love Jennifer Weiner, you'll love this one.  And if you're a newbie, start here." --  Kirkus Reviews  (starred)

"Weiner's story of female friendships (after  Mrs. Everything ) mixes a splash of romance, a dash of humor, and a pinch of mystery to create a deliciously bloody poolside cocktail.  Weiner's surprising tale is hard to put down."  --  Publishers Weekly

"A heartfelt look at taking second chances, in life and in love."  -- Kirkus Reviews

 "This will still sweep readers off their feet. January's first-person narration is suitably poetic and effervescent, the small-town beach setting is charming, and the romance is achingly swoony."  -- Booklist
"Superb...Hilderbrand hits all the right notes about life in a tightly knit family, and this crowd-pleaser is sure to satisfy both her fans and newcomers alike."--  Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A quintessential summer read."
--  People

"Knighton is a companionable guide, light on his feet, with a steady store of . . . excellent descriptive passages, good background material, and a few sweeping insights into why national parks are so essential. . . . A fine tour d'horizon of our national grandeur."  -- Kirkus Reviews

"This fascinating memoir documents . . . a must-do travel item shared by many."  --USA TODAY
Now in paperback!

"A lively history of the Ohio River region in the years between the Revolution and the Civil War. . . . [McCullough's] narrative abounds with well-recognized figures in American history--John Quincy Adams, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Johnny Appleseed--while highlighting lesser-known players. . . . Vintage McCullough and a book that students of American history will find captivating."--Michael Taube "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"
