My Lady's Choosing
In this hilariously tongue-in-cheek novel, you will wind your way through seemingly endless storylines, encountering love interests that may remind you of the likes of Jamie Fraser, Mr. Darcy, Heathcliff, and more. Curran and Zageris’ love for the genre shows through their perfectly-crafted parodies and homages to the great romances of literature. This book is perfect for fans of romance, classic literature, or fun, light reads.

                                                                              

My Darling Detective
A tribute to the noir detective novel, and to the power of art.

Meddling Kids

Former pre-teen detectives, now in their 20s in 1990, return to their 
old summer stomping grounds to exorcise their demons, sometimes 
literally. Sly references to Batman, Monty Python, and of course, 
Scooby-Doo make this book endlessly fun. Cantaro's characters seem 
familiar, but he makes them his own, creating a story that is both 
nostalgic and new.

Every Mountain Made Low

I have never read a novel with a main character that has learning differences, so I really enjoyed the representation while seeing Loxley's view on seemingly everyday things. This book is difficult to explain as it dips into various genres, but can most likely be classified as paranormal science-fiction. Dealing with many heavy topics such as disabilities, sexual assault, murder, and political corruption, this book is probably not a poolside read.
