The memory collectors

by kim neville
The Memory Collectors: A Novel by [Kim Neville]



Our Hot Pick is from debut author Kim Neville!

Evelyn has the ability to feel the emotions people leave behind on objects. She considers this a curse and is extremely careful. She doesn’t allow “stained objects” in her home and she wears gloves in order to protect herself from any strong emotions. Harriet has the same gift, but her hoarding of “bright things” is starting to make her neighbors sick.

Harriet has an idea to put all her good-feeling objects into a memory museum where people can walk through and soak up all the good energy, but she knows Evelyn is the only person who can truly help her.

The two women work together to develop and control their ability, but the darkness that closed in on the only other person they know with the gift, is beginning to encircle them again. Magical realism shines a new light on the everyday in this story about recovery after childhood trauma.


The Memory Collectors is a magical and dark contemporary story about recovery after childhood trauma and learning to trust and forgive. This book is perfect for readers who enjoyed Reese’s Book Club Pick The Scent Keeper by Erica Bauermeister. Fans of Celeste Ng, Alice Hoffman, and Carmen Maria Machado will also find pleasure in the ethereal atmosphere of this novel!

when stars collide

by Susan Elizabeth Phillips


When Stars Collide: A Chicago Stars Novel by [Susan Elizabeth Phillips]

For our Beach Read, #1 New York Times bestseller Susan Elizabeth Phillips returns to her beloved Chicago Stars series with a romance between a Chicago Stars quarterback and one of the world’s greatest opera singers—and a major diva.

Fans of the series will love this new installment, and if you’ve never read the books before, it’s not too late to jump in! They can all be read separately! 

Thaddeus Walker Bowman Owens, the backup quarterback for the Chicago Stars, is a team player, talented sideline coach, occasional male underwear model, and a man with a low tolerance for divas. 

Olivia Shore, international opera superstar, is a driven diva with a passion for perfection, a craving for justice, too many secrets—and a monumental grudge against the egotistical, lowbrow jock she’s been stuck with.

But when Thaddeus and Olivia embark on a nationwide promotion tour for a luxury watch brand, their two worlds collide in a thundering crash. As they engage in wild soul-searching, trash-talk, and backstage drama, Olivia and Thaddeus also have to deal with threatening letters, haunting photographs, and more than one dangerous encounter. But Is it the work of an overzealous fan or something more sinister?



This is the emotional journey of a brilliant women whose career is everything and a talented man who’ll never be happy with second place. When Stars Collide is a tender, funny, insightful, passionate, and irresistibly romantic read that will fill your heart with joy. If you like rom-coms like The Hating Game, The Unhoneymooners, The Wedding Date, Well Met, and The Kiss Quotient, this book is the perfect fit for you!
