Little Scratch by Rebecca Watson

Little Scratch by Rebecca    Watson*GALLEY GIVEAWAY*

In the formally experimental tradition of Grief Is the Thing with Feathers and Ducks, Newburyport comes a dazzlingly original shot-in-the-arm of a debut that reveals a young woman's every thought over the course of one deceptively mundane day.

She wakes up, goes to work. Watches the clock and checks her phone. But underneath this monotony there's something else going on: something under her skin.


Relayed in interweaving columns that chart the feedback loop of memory, the senses, and modern distractions with wit and precision, our narrator becomes increasingly anxious as the day moves on: Is she overusing the heart emoji? Can drinking eight glasses of water a day really fix everything? Why is the etiquette of the women's bathroom be so fraught? How does she define "rape"? And why can't she stop scratching?

Fiercely moving and slyly profound, little scratch is a defiantly playful look at how our minds function in--and survive--the darkest moments.

The Summer House by James Patterson

The Summer House by James PattersonEnter for a chance to win one of 20 advanced reader copies of The Summer House by James Patterson.

Seven murder victims.
Four accused Army Rangers.
Two versions of the truth.
Only one can survive.

Sullivan County, Georgia, belongs to Sheriff Emma Williams. But when Rangers posted to the local base are implicated in a major crime, the Army challenges her jurisdiction.

An elite team of investigators, led by Major Jeremiah Cook, are called to The Summer House, a grand old place on a lake that’s now locked down for a forensic investigation. The small-town sheriff has never worked a multiple homicide, and Cook knows it. To Cook, the physical evidence Williams swears by presents clues to an entirely different story. One that will be impossible for his commanding officers — or anyone — to believe.

Unless he can convince the locals that the recent crimes are part of a larger mystery, this outsider may never unlock the century of secrets hidden inside The Summer House.
