 Release Date - January 12, 2021 Fourteen-year-old Beth's life changes when her parents and brother are killed in a car crash. Her aunt seems to have no time for her, so she's given the chance to live with a girl close to her age at the lakeside estate Raven Hall. At Raven Hall, Beth is treated as one of the family. That is until her foster parents ask her to play a harmless game where she poses as their real daughter every time their father arrives from the U.S. That changes everything. Fast forward almost 30 years to 2019. Struggling actress Sadie Langton is offered a part pretending to be a guest at a murder mystery weekend being held at Raven Hall. As the evening begins, Sadie realizes there is something more going on. This game she's been hired to be part of is far more sinister than she could have imagined. The Perfect Guests switches back and forth from 1988 to 2019. As the people in each time period are different, it's easy to keep up with the different chara

 Release Date - January 21, 2021 Abby is tired of her parents' relentless need for her to be the best. She's tired of constant tutoring sessions, essays, and pressure to get her grades up. It's her friends, Leo and Connie, that allow her a break from the craziness that is her life. When Leo decides to take a DNA test to uncover his family history, he asks Connie and Abby to join him.

 Do you love finding bargains? I know I do and the offer on Christina McDonald's second novel is too good to pass up! For a limited time, save $10 on Behind Every Lie . This mystery/suspense tells the tragic story of a young woman who is found unconscious in the street. She's been hit by lightning and remembers very little. She especially doesn't remember killing her mother, though authorities believe that's exactly what she did. Eva has no choice but to clear her name and unravel the truth.  I loved The Night Olivia Fell .  It was a rare gem that had me on the edge of my seat with tears in my eyes at the same time. The author does a great job with emotional appeal tied into a chilling mystery. I have this second novel on my radar and will be reading it soon. Join me!  @christinamac79  @GalleryBooks

Release Date - January 12, 2021 A woman wakes up in the hospital. She has no idea who she is or how she got there. All her doctors and nurses know is that she was attacked and left with a head injury. Her only clue is her iPhone. Siri informs her her name is Mia, but the numbers in her contact list are proving to be useless. Mia's Prada dress and stylish haircut seem to suggest she's wealthy, but she doesn't remember a thing. Tracking down her identity is going to take a lot of investigative work and the help of a man who is house sitting at the home she finds shown in several of her online posts. As she learns more about her past, she starts to realize this may be the chance to start anew. Siri, Who Am I? takes an amnesia plot to a new level. In this case, there are no apparent friends or family members to help Mia figure out who she is and why she was attacked. The mystery is just as much fun as the romance that slowly blooms between her and her supposed home
