With a new month comes a whole new stack of books you need to add to your TBR. From romance, thrillers, to poetry - I've got you covered with my most anticipated June releases.
My Killer Vacation
It was supposed to be a relaxing vacation- just me and my beloved brother-but discovering a corpse in our rental house throws a wrench into our tanning schedule. Now a rude, crude bounty hunter has arrived on the back of his motorcycle to catch the killer & refuses to believe I can be helpful, despite countless hours of true crime podcast listening. Not to mention a fulfilling teaching career of wrangling second graders. A brash bounty hunter and an energetic elementary schoolteacher: the murder-solving team no one asked for, but thanks to these pesky attempts on my life, we're stuck together, come hell or high tide.
Seven Days In June
Eva Mercy is a single mother and bestselling erotica writer. Shane Hall is a reclusive, enigmatic, award-winning novelist.
When Shane and Eva meet at a literary event, sparks fly, raising not only their buried traumas, but also the eyebrows of the Black literati. What no one knows is that fifteen years earlier, teenage Eva and Shane spent one crazy, torrid week madly in love. While they may be pretending not to know each other, they can't deny their chemistry - or the fact that they've been secretly writing to each other in their books through the years.
Nora Goes Off Script
Nora Hamilton's a romance screenwriter. When her husband leaves her & their two kids, Nora turns the collapse of her marriage into the best script of her life. When it's picked up for the big screen Nora's life will never be the same - especially after Hollywood actor and former 'Sexiest Man Alive' Leo Vance is cast as her ex-husband.
The morning after the crew leaves, Nora finds Leo on her porch with a proposition. He'll pay a thousand dollars a day to stay for an extra week. It's enough time to fall in love. Enough time to break your heart..

But Goldie's not the only person at camp who has been lying. When a teen turns up dead in the lake, she knows that the death couldn't have been an accident. She also knows that Ava was at the lake that same night. What did Ava see and what does she know? Why hasn't she said anything to Goldie about the death? But asking questions offers no answers, only broken bonds of lifelong friendship, with hidden danger and betrayals deeper than Goldie ever imagined.

In My Dreams I Hold A Knife
Ten years after graduation, Jessica Miller has planned her triumphant return to Duquette University. Everyone is going to see the girl she wants them to see. Not the girl she was when she left campus, back when Heather Shelby's murder fractured everything, including the tight bond linking the six friends she'd been closest to. But not everyone left Duquette ten years ago, and not everyone can let Heather's murder go unsolved. Someone is determined to trap the real killer, to make the guilty pay. When the six friends are reunited, they will be forced to confront what happened that night―and the years' worth of secrets each of them would do anything to keep hidden.
