Jane Harper has a gift for invoking an incredibly strong sense of place. The brutal Australian outback is more than a backdrop to an intricately plotted and emotionally satisfying mystery that kept me guessing. The Lost Man is a tense, atmospheric page turner with well drawn, flawed, and relatable characters.

Mischa Abramavicius is the perfect student, so why have all of her college applications (even her safety school!) ended in rejections? Is it a sign that she’s thrown all her eggs in the wrong academic basket? Or is she the victim of a cruel conspiracy? Maybe it’s a bit of both. Kaplan’s follow-up to Grendel’s Guide to Love and War (go read that too, it’s great) is the perfect back-to-school read, expertly blending the whip-smart dialogue of Gilmore Girls with some classic, hard-boiled detective work.

The dynamic duo we need! (Four more years?!) This hilarious caper finds Joe Biden feeling left out while his best friend Barack Obama vacations around the world with high-profile friends. But soon they're brought together while investigating the murder of an Amtrak train conductor. This book is perfectly corny and satirical. Thank you Andrew Shaffer!

When his childhood best friend dies in an apparent murder-suicide, Aaron Falk goes back to the hometown he's been avoiding for years because of the murder of a girl that the town suspected him for--and one for which his best friend lied as his alibi. Tense and atmospheric, I immediately reached for the sequel.
