Bestselling authors Megan Miranda and Shari Lapena discuss their new books in conversation with bestselling author Mary Kubica.
Miranda's "Such A Quiet Place," described as the perfect summer beach read, is set in a seemingly idyllic neighborhood. Scratch the surface though, and there is deceit and viciousness festering inside the households of this community. "Such A Quiet Place" strikes an unnerving cord and will leave you wondering -- do you ever really know your neighbors? With blockbuster novels such as "All The Missing Girls," "The Perfect Stranger," and "The Last House Guest" (a Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick), Miranda has established herself as a master of the suspense genre.
Shari Lapena's "Not A Happy Family" has it all: rich people behaving badly, sibling rivalry, twists, turns, red herrings, and, of course, a few murders interspersed. When Fred and Sheila Merton are savagely killed, their adult kids are devastated. Or are they? Lapena’s new book brings to life the world of the rich and powerful with the dysfunctional Merton family. In this family, everyone is keeping secrets. Even the dead. Lapena is the internationally bestselling author of the thrillers "The Couple Next Door," "A Stranger in the House," "An Unwanted Guest," "Someone We Know," and "The End of Her."
