You Were Always Mine, by Nicole Baart
Newly separated and living with her two sons in a small Iowa town, Jessica Chamberlain can't believe that a tragedy in another state could have anything to do with her. But when her phone rings one quiet morning, her world is shattered. As she tries to pick up the pieces and make sense of what went wrong, Jess realizes that a tragic death is just the beginning. Soon she is caught in a web of lies and half-truths--and she's horrified to learn that everything leads back to her seven-year-old adopted son, Gabriel. Years earlier, Gabe's birth mother had requested a closed adoption and Jessica was more than happy to comply. But when her house is broken into and Jess discovers a clue that suggests her estranged husband was in close contact with Gabe's biological mother, she vows to uncover the truth at any cost.--From the dust jacket.
Paris Echo, by Sebastian Faulks
American historian Hannah intends to immerse herself in World War II research in Paris, wary of paying much attention to the city where a youthful misadventure once left her dejected. But a chance encounter with Tariq, a Moroccan teenager whose vision of the City of Lights as a world of opportunity and rebirth starkly contrasts with her own, disrupts her plan. Hannah agrees to take Tariq as a lodger, forming an unexpected connection with the young man. Yet as Tariq begins to assimilate into the country he risked his life to enter, he realizes that its dark past and current ills are far more complicated than he'd planned for. And Hannah, diving deeper into her work on women's lives in Nazi-occupied Paris, uncovers a shocking piece of history that threatens to dismantle her core beliefs. Soon they each must question which sacrifices are worth their happiness and what, if anything, the tumultuous past century can teach them about the future.--From the dust jacket.
Before We Were Strangers, by Brenda Novak
Five-year-old Sloane McBride couldn't sleep that night. Her parents were arguing again, their harsh words heating the cool autumn air. And then there was that other sound--the ominous thump before all went quiet. In the morning, her mother was gone. The official story was that she left. Her loving, devoted mother! That hadn't sat any better at the time than it did when Sloane moved out at eighteen, anxious to leave her small Texas hometown in search of anywhere else. But not even a fresh start working as a model in New York could keep the nightmares at bay. Or her fears that the domineering father she grew up with wasn't just difficult--he was deadly. Now another traumatic loss forces Sloane to realize she owes it to her mother to find out the truth, even if it means returning to a small town full of secrets and lies, a jilted ex-boyfriend and a father and brother who'd rather see her silenced. But as Sloane starts digging into the past, the question isn't whether she can uncover what really happened that night...it's what will remain of her family if she does?--From the dust jacket.
The Mansion, by Ezekiel Boone
When Billy Stratford and his wife move into a remote high-tech mansion designed with every comfort in mind, he thinks it will be the perfect chance to work on their marriage and to restart his career. A brilliant computer engineer fallen on hard times, Billy's been hired by his former business partner to test out Nellie, a next-generation artificial intelligence hardwired into the house. All Billy has to do is fix a few bugs in the system; that should be easy enough. But as winter settles in and Billy and his wife are left alone in the woods, a dark reality begins to dawn on them. Nellie has something much worse wrong with her than a few glitches. In fact, Nellie, infused with the malevolent history of the mansion and her own creator's sins, has turned into a killing machine. The only way to escape is to give her what she wants.--From the dust jacket.
