Every now and then we encounter a new book that we're so excited about we want to shout it from the rooftops, so we have this special designation to distinguish it from the rest: TC V.I.B. (very impressive book) !
January V.I.B...
by Jane Harper

"Federal agent Aaron Falk returns to his estranged home town after a twenty year absence only to find himself embroiled in a murder investigation. The town and its cast of shady characters are hiding secrets, but so is Aaron. The setting -- a small, drought-ravaged farm community in rural Australia -- is so beautifully and hauntingly described, it's almost a character itself. The Dry, a brilliant debut that has me eager for Harper's next book, will appeal to readers of literary fiction, mysteries, and thrillers." -- Len Vlahos, owner

"This is already one of my favorite books of 2018 and I can't wait to share it with the world. This beautifully crafted novel follows the four Gold siblings over five decades after they have learned the dates of their deaths. Did having this knowledge impact how they lived their lives? How they treated each other? I have a huge soft spot for books that explore sibling relationships, and this book is that and more. The Immortalists is like several novels in one as you go on a personal journey with each of the characters while reflecting on the meaning of fate and free will. Start your 2018 off right by reading this book." -- Ashley Lyons, Marketing Communications Associate. Meet the Author!

"Heartbreaking and redemptive,  The Unmade World  kept me enthralled, as two strangers’ worlds collide on a snowy Polish road, both men’s lives irrevocably altered. Richard, an American journalist is left with bottomless grief and Bogdan, a down on his luck Pole with a conscience forever plagued by guilt and a future tainted by more bad luck. Grim as that may sound,  The Unmade World  is a beautiful novel, thought provoking and moving and, for added pleasure, embedded with a murder mystery. Deeply satisfying, it stayed with me long after I read the last word, leaving me to muse about what the hapless Bogdan would so eloquently call the imponderables." --  Cathy Langer, special to Tattered Cover
