Emily Arsenault - The ​Broken Teaglass
In ​the maze of cubicles at Samuelson Company, editorial assistant Billy Webb struggles to focus while helping to prepare the next edition of a dictionary. But there are distractions. He senses that something suspicious is going on beneath this company's academic facade. What's more, his (possibly) flirtatious co-worker Mona Minot has just made a startling discovery: a trove of puzzling citations, all taken from the same book, "The Broken Teaglass." Billy and Mona soon learn that no such book exists. And the quotations read like a confession, coyly hinting at a hidden identity, a secret liaison, a crime. As Billy and Mona try to unearth the truth, the puzzle begins to take on bigger meaning for both of them, compelling them to redefine their notions of themselves and each other. "The Broken Teaglass" is at once a literary mystery, a cautious love story, and an ingenious suspense novel that will delight fans of brilliantly inventive fiction.

Emily Arsenault - Miss ​Me When I'm Gone
MISS ​ME WHEN I'M GONE is the story of the sudden death of Gretchen, the author of Tammyland, a "honky-tonk" Eat, Pray, Love, and Jamie, the friend who finds in Gretchen's next, unpublished manuscript a mystery that could lead to a killer. Gretchen Waters is most famous for her book Tammyland-a "honky-tonk Eat, Pray, Love," a memoir about her divorce and her admiration for Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, and Dolly Parton. When Gretchen dies falling on a set of stone steps outside of a library, everyone thinks it was an accident or a botched mugging. Jamie, Gretchen's best friend from college, certainly has no reason to suspect foul play. That is, until she becomes Gretchen's literary executor. Gretchen's latest manuscript is much darker than Tammyland-ostensibly about her favorite classic male country singers, it's really about a murder in her family that haunted her childhood. From beyond the grave, Gretchen's writing opens up a sinister new world, and suddenly, Gretchen's death seems suspicious-and then Jamie finds herself in danger as well...

Emily Arsenault - The ​Evening Spider
A ​gripping blend of psychological suspense and historical true crime, this riveting novel—inspired by a sensational real-life murder from the 1800s—by critically acclaimed author Emily Arsenault delivers a heart-stopping mystery linking two young mothers from different centuries. Frances Barnett and Abby Bernacki are two haunted young mothers living in the same house in two different centuries. 1885: Frances Barnett is in the Northampton Lunatic Hospital, telling her story to a visitor. She has come to distrust her own memories, and believes that her pregnancy, birth, and early days of motherhood may have impaired her sanity. During the earliest months of her baby’s life, Frances eagerly followed the famous murder trial of Mary Stannard—that captivated New Englanders with its salacious details and expert forensic testimony. Following—and even attending—this trial, Frances found an escape from the monotony of new motherhood. But as her story unfolds, Frances must admit that her obsession with the details of the murder were not entirely innocent. Present day: Abby has been adjusting to motherhood smoothly—until recently, when odd sensations and dreams have begun to unsettle her while home alone with her baby. When she starts to question the house’s history, she is given the diary of Frances Barnett, who lived in the house 125 years earlier. Abby finds the diary disturbing, and researches the Barnett family’s history. The more Abby learns, the more she wonders about a negative—possibly supernatural—influence in her house. She becomes convinced that when she sleeps, she leaves her daughter vulnerable—and then vows not to sleep until she can determine the cause of her eerie experiences. Frances Barnett might not be the only new mother to lose her mind in this house. And like Frances, Abby discovers that by trying to uncover another’s secrets, she risks awakening some of her own.

Emily Arsenault - Az ​eltört teáspohár
A ​nagy múltra visszatekintő Samuelson Kiadóvállalat első emeleti termének végtelen fülkelabirintusában elmélyülten dolgoznak a szótárszerkesztők. Közéjük veszik föl friss diplomájával a filozofikus hajlamú, atlétatermetű Billy Webbet, és nagy örömére rögtön munkakapcsolatba kerül a csinos Mona Minot-val, akivel különös cédulákra bukkannak a katalógusban: a rajtuk szereplő idézetekben mintha a tulajdon munkahelyüket írná le egy őrültnek tűnő nő. Ez felkelti az érdeklődésüket, és némi utánajárással kiderítik, hogy sem a forrásként megjelölt könyv, sem a szerzője, sem a kiadója nem létezik, nem létezett sohasem. Most már céltudatosan kutatnak hasonló idézetek után a több milliónyi katalóguscédula között, nem is hiába. További furcsa cédulák kerülnek elő, amelyekből egyre bizarrabb történet kerekedik ki: az őrült nő (vagy nem is őrült?) egy titkolt szerelemi kapcsolatra célozgat és egy rejtélyes gyilkosságról beszél (vagy csak fantáziál?), amelyhez rajta kívül több férfinak is köze volt így vagy úgy. És Billy meg Mona mindinkább úgy gondolja, hogy némelyik férfi leírása ráillik egyik-másik munkatársukra…
