(I)ntense psychological suspense novel inspired by a true story about a couple in an insular French village whose lives are upended when a family of outsiders moves in. (publisher)
I browsed the first pages of Florence Adler Swims Forever and am captivated. It will be first on my list after my current reads are done.
Nakamura's noir fiction is a favorite of mine, so I'm pretty happy to have My Annihilation. Insular French villages always capture my interest, and so does People Like Them.
