The Cherry & the Pit

A continuing series that highlights books recently acquired by publishing houses for future release. Each post features a book we’re looking forward to, and a book we’re . . . not.

The Cherry:

Matthew Sharpe’s You Were Wrong, a humorous story of petty crimes, love, and people not being able to read other people’s intentions well.

(Sharpe’s Jamestown is a deeply odd book that I loved reading.)

The Pit:

Kelly Ann Riley’s debut Kitty’s Fire, in which an L. A. firefighter returns to her hometown to prove her father didn’t start the fire that killed him and two others, and an ex-FBI agent goes undercover as the new fire chief to prove her wrong; but neither expect the sparks that fly between them.
