Readers’ Choice

Nora Roberts has the week’s big debut—#1 on our hardcover fiction list and #5 overall—with The Choice, which “expertly weaves threads from the previous two books of her Dragon Heart Legacy series into an epic climax and gratifying grand finale,” per our review.

Book two in Blake’s Bright Falls series stars Astrid Parker, “a ‘baby bisexual’ interior designer who’s at loose ends after splitting from her ‘golden boy’ fiancé,” according to our review. “Then she meets the equally lost-in-life Jordan Everwood, a tarot-reading ‘soft-butch’ carpenter,” and their connection makes for a “sexy and heartfelt queer rom-com.”
