PIRATE HUNTERS: Treasure, Obsession, and the Search for a Legendary Pirate Ship by Robert Kurson

Filled with suspense, fascinating characters, deep-sea diving, and historic mystery, this thrilling new book by the bestselling author of Shadow Divers is an unputdownable story that goes deep to discover truths and souls long believed lost.

Pirate Hunters is a fantastic book, an utterly engrossing and satisfying read. It tells the story of the hunt for the rare wreck of a pirate ship, which had been captained by one of the most remarkable pirates in history. This is a real-life Treasure Island, complete with swashbuckling, half-crazy treasure hunters and vivid Caribbean settings—a story for the ages.” —Douglas Preston

IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT by Judy Blume

Blume’s first book for adults since Summer Sisters, In the Unlikely Event is a gripping novel with all the hallmarks of her unparalleled storytelling as she weaves together a haunting story of three generations of families, friends, and strangers, whose lives are profoundly changed by disaster.

“Characteristically accessible, frequently charming, and always deeply human.” —Publishers Weekly

THE TRUTH ACCORDING TO US: A Novel by Annie Barrows

From the co-author of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society comes a wise, witty, and exuberant novel, perfect for fans of Lee Smith, that illuminates the power of loyalty and forgiveness, memory and truth, and the courage it takes to do what’s right.

The Truth According to Us is an irresistible novel, a sly charmer of a story about a small town in Depression-era West Virginia whose history is rewritten by a debutante on the run. Family histories, too, are unraveled, but mended by the fierce, strong women who dominate this delightful page turner, a tribute to the power of love and forgiveness to heal even the most heartbreaking betrayals.”—Melanie Benjamin, New York Times bestselling author of The Aviator’s Wife

THE LITTLE PARIS BOOKSHOP: A Novel by Nina George

From his floating bookstore on the Seine, Monsieur Perdu prescribes novels as medicine for the hardships of life, using his intuitive feel for the exact book a reader needs. The only person he can’t seem to heal through literature is himself; he’s still haunted by heartbreak after his great love disappeared. For fans of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry.

CHINA RIGH GIRLFRIEND: A Novel by Kevin Kwan

Kevin Kwan, bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians, is back with a wickedly funny new novel of social climbing, secret e-mails, art-world scandal, lovesick billionaires, and the outrageous story of what happens when Rachel Chu, engaged to marry Asia’s most eligible bachelor, discovers her birthfather.
