Published: William Morrow Paperbacks - May 7th, 2019

In Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors, Sonali Dev creates a vibrant modern Pride and Prejudice retelling that manages to feel fresh. Trisha Raje is a prominent neurosurgeon and DJ Caine is a rising-star chef who quits his job and moves to California because his sister is sick. The two collide—explosively—throughout the novel, and the tension and slow burn will keep you reading and wondering what will happen even if you know how Pride and Prejudice ends. I flew through it, captured by the tension, the well-developed characters and families, and the many, many descriptions of DJ's cooking. Bonus: The sequel comes out at the end of May!

Sydney's historically Black Brooklyn neighborhood seems to be changing before her eyes as "For Sale" signs pop up, and her neighbors start moving out without a word. But as Sydney does a deep dive for the history tour of the neighborhood that she's developing, she discovers that not everything is as it seems. This psychological thriller about gentrification is the book you need to be reading right now. It made my skin crawl and left me astounded at Cole's inventiveness and insightfulness. (And in true Alyssa Cole form, there is romance too.)
