FICTION


Nothing But the Truth by James Holly

“James’s debut is a sharply funny feminist spin on the 1997 Jim Carrey film Liar Liar… James (who’s trained in clinical psychology) uses her novel’s amusing premise and relatable heroine to engage readers, while Lucy’s plight is a way to explore deeper issues of workplace politics, harassment, and the social constraints placed on women.” —Library Journal, starred review

Dinner in One: Exceptional & Easy One-Pan Meals: a Cookbook by Melissa Clark

Guided by two questions—“ Is there a way I could make this recipe easier, faster, and tastier? And what’s the minimum number of pots, pans, and dishes I need to dirty to get there?”—Clark offers a pared-down approach to making dinner.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

Simple Pasta: Pasta Made Easy. Life Made Better by Odette Williams

This is a must-have for pasta enthusiasts.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
