SKYJACK - The Real Book Spy Review

The Real Book Spy | March 5, 2018

“In a genre that predominantly features alpha male characters, K.J. Howe re-writes the rulebook by making her protagonist a strong female operative with a medical condition, adding realism without sacrificing any of the action. Thea Paris can throw down with the very best the genre has to offer, and so can Howe.

From start to finish, Skyjack is one wild, twisting, and flat-out entertaining thrill ride. If you’re searching for a great new series to jump into, look no further.

SKYJACK - Publishers Weekly Starred Review

Publishers Weekly | Feb. 19, 2018

“Good thing Thea has serious skills in fighting, shooting, and flying a plane. The enthralling plot moves across Europe with lightning speed, linking a WWII legend with an underground militant group’s plan to release a deadly toxic substance. In-depth character studies match the high tension. With this nail-biter, Howe seals her place as a first-class purveyor of adventure stories showcasing strong women characters.”

THE UNDERTAKER'S DAUGHTER - New York Times Book Review

New York Times | Feb. 2, 2018

Ilka Jensen is nothing if not resourceful. In the first novel in Sara Blaedel’s new series, The Undertaker’s Daughter (Grand Central, $26), Jensen leaves her home in Copenhagen and flies to Racine, Wis., after her estranged father leaves her an undertaking business in his will. On her first day, Jensen must add pet dogs to the plans for a funeral service, pick up a severely mangled body at the morgue (“Bring along some extra plastic. It sounds like it might be a mess”) and come up with $60,000 to keep the I.R.S. from freezing her assets. To make this new life complete, the police inform her that one of the bodies in her freezer is probably a murderer. Most amateur sleuths hold down professional jobs to support their unofficial detective work. Blaedel has come up with an especially challenging occupation for Jensen, but this 6-foot-tall Viking goddess is strong enough to carry it all by herself.

WHEN THEY CALL YOU A TERRORIST - BookReporter Review

BookReporter | January 18, 2018

“This is a book about one woman’s capacity to love herself and her family and friends so hard she knows the power in that love. This is a book about one woman’s journey into a deeper, fuller love and her journey to spread that love —- to teach it, to work towards kindness, peace and breath, to work to get to a place where she doesn’t have to live in fear for herself or her loved ones, but can put all her bountiful energy towards creation and positivity. This is a book about an inclusive movement of visibility and justice. This is not a book that can be pinned down easily. It’s a memoir, a story of living history. This is not a book that I have any right to tell you about. It speaks for itself.

Patrisse Khan-Cullors and asha bandele have crafted an urgent, direct, informed and compassionate volume. I deeply encourage everyone to read it.”

WHEN THEY CALL YOU A TERRORIST - WNYC "Here For It: Oprah, 'The Chi' and the Power of a Protest Memoir"

WNYC | January 16, 2018

Most people are familiar with the Black Lives Matter movement, and some are even aware that it was founded by three young, queer black women — Patrisse Khan-Cullors, Alicia Garzia and Opal Tometi. But one thing that is often overlooked, or perhaps just misunderstood, is that activists, people who make movements, commit to acts of protest, are also very human. They are not all driven by anger, they do not bleed boiling blood. And that’s what comes through above all else in Khan-Cullors memoir, When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir, which she co-wrote with award-winning author and journalist Asha Bandele.

WHEN THEY CALL YOU A TERRORIST - Bustle "Books By Women To Read During The Week Of January 16"

Bustle | January 16, 2018

On the day after America’s annual celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. comes a memoir that poignantly and poetically emphasizes the root of civil disobedience: love. However, co-authors Patrisse Khan-Cullors and Asha Bandele want you to know that change is not usually pretty or diplomatic. In fact, fighting on behalf of yourself and those who have been victimized by centuries of white power is not — in any sense — easy or clean, and the strength and resilience required to continue these fights does not flow from an unlimited well.

PopMatters: "The Last Mrs. Parrish" Nods to and Subverts the Classics with Aplomb

PopMatters | November 29, 2017

The Last Mrs. Parrish fits well within the mold of Gone Girl-esque thrillers: it has the requisite unsympathetic female protagonist, features endless double-crossing and conniving and plotting, and is threaded throughout with cutting commentary on the roles and expectations of marriage.

While The Last Mrs. Parrish is not as fresh and daring as Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl, which really was utterly shocking, ruthless, and iconic enough to have basically started its own subgenre, it’s far better than Paula Hawkins’ The Girl on the Train.

The Last Mrs. Parrish was selected as an @iBooks Favorite!

Amber Patterson, a young beauty with a humble and checkered past, wants more—so she contrives to befriend Daphne Parrish, a woman who has it all. The Last Mrs. Parrish starts as a classic other-woman tale, with an appearances-are-deceiving thread several shades darker than that of The Girl on the Train. The story takes an unexpected turn when the perspective shifts to Daphne’s chilling first-person narration. Liv Constantine—the pen name of a pair of sisters who write thrillers together online—had us hooked and unsettled from start to finish.

Grand Central to publish more Barbara Bourland, Sara Blaedel

Publishers Weekly | December 9, 2016

Grand Central’s Maddie Caldwell has acquired North American rights to former O Magazine digital producer Barbara Bourland’s Pine City, the author’s second novel. Victoria Sanders of Victoria Sanders & Associates, who brokered the deal, called it an “uncommon acquisition” given that Bourland’s first novel, I’ll Eat When I’m Dead, has not yet been published. (That book is due from Grand Central in spring 2017.) According to Sanders, Pine City is set in an “abandoned summer resort in the Hudson Valley” and centers on a young painter who “finds herself falling ever deeper into the inner circle of an enigmatic group of older artists.” Pine City is set for a spring 2019 release.

Sanders also brokered a deal with Grand Central’s Lindsey Rose for North American rights to seven books by suspense author Sara Blaedel. One book, The Undertaker’s Daughter, the first in the Undertaker series is, according to Sanders, about a “woman who receives an unexpected inheritance—which turns out to be much more than she bargained for—from a father she hasn’t heard from in three decades, forcing her to leave her native Denmark and relocate to Racine, Wisconsin.” The publisher also acquired six backlist titles in Blaedel’s series centering on Louise Rick, a police investigator.
