I’ve seen this tag floating around, and honestly, I don’t know where it originated from because it’s been around for years! I tweaked it slightly so that it worked for me, so read on to find out about the books that I’ve loved, hated, and fangirled over so far this year!
Twenty years ago, Geo was sixteen years old and madly in love with her older boyfriend, Calvin. Geo’s relationship with Calvin caused a rift between Geo and her best friends, Angela and Kaiser. Angela, used to being the one who gets the attention from boys, was jealous, and Kaiser, who had secretly been in love with Geo for years, found it hard to watch her fawn over someone else.
When Angela disappears, all of the friendships and relationships between the group are fractured, and for good reason. Fifteen years later, Geo has moved on with her life, and has tried her hardest to put the past behind her. Her new life shatters when Angela’s body is uncovered, and she’s arrested in relation to the murder – it turns out, her ex boyfriend Calvin was a serial killer known as the Sweetbay Strangler. What’s worse, is the fact that Geo knew what happened to Angela and never told.
After spending five years in prison, Geo returns home. While everyone thinks they finally know the truth, there are dark secrets buried deep, and what happened that fateful night is more chilling than anyone knows. Now, the obsessive past catches up with the deadly present when new bodies begin to turn up, killed in the exact same manner as Angela. How far will Geo go to protect her past?
I love sharing these posts and talking about new releases, partly because it reminds me of which books are coming out soon!

A special shoutout to the very first book on my list, because my wonderful friend Cait wrote it!
A woman stumbles onto a dark road in rural Oregon–tortured, battered, and bound. She tells a horrific story about being kidnapped, then tortured, until she finally managed to escape. She was the lucky one–two other women, with similar burns and bruises, were found dead.
The surviving victim identifies the house where she was held captive and the owner, Alex Mason–a prominent local attorney–is arrested. Although he loudly insists upon his innocence, his wife’s statements about his sexual sadism and the physical evidence found at the scene, his summer home, is damning.
Regina Barrister is a legendary criminal defense attorney, known as “The Sorceress” for her courtroom victories. But she’s got a secret, one that threatens her skill, her reputation, and, most of all, her clients. And she’s agreed to take on the seemingly impossible task of defending Alex Mason.
Robin Lockwood, a young lawyer and former MMA fighter, has just left a clerkship at the Oregon Supreme Court to work for Regina Barrister. The Alex Mason trial is her first big one, a likely death penalty case, and she’s second chair to Regina. Increasingly, she’s worried her boss’s behavior and the details in the case against their client don’t quite add up.
Months apart, Tom and Caroline Johnson committed suicide, one seemingly unable to live without the other. Their adult daughter, Anna, is struggling to come to terms with her parents’ deaths, unable to comprehend why they chose to end their lives without so much as a goodbye.

What Anna doesn’t know is that by digging up their past, she’s putting her future in danger. Someone is trying to stop her. She soon learns that nothing is as it seemed, and that maybe it’s better to let things lie…
