Megan Miranda - The ​Last House Guest
Littleport, ​Maine is like two separate towns: a vacation paradise for wealthy holidaymakers and a simple harbour community for the residents who serve them. Friendships between locals and visitors are unheard of - but that's just what happened with Avery Greer and Sadie Loman. Each summer for a decade the girls are inseparable - until Sadie is found dead. When the police rule the death a suicide, Avery can't help but feel there are those in the community, including a local detective and Sadie's brother Parker, who blame her. Someone knows more than they're saying, and Avery is intent on clearing her name before the facts get twisted against her.

Megan Miranda - Fracture
Eleven ​minutes passed before Delaney Maxwell was pulled from the icy waters of a Maine lake by her best friend Decker Phillips. By then her heart had stopped beating. Her brain had stopped working. She was dead. And yet she somehow defied medical precedent to come back seemingly fine—despite the scans that showed significant brain damage. Everyone wants Delaney to be all right, but she knows she’s far from normal. Pulled by strange sensations she can’t control or explain, Delaney finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her altered brain now predicting death, or causing it? Then Delaney meets Troy Varga, who recently emerged from a coma with similar abilities. At first she’s reassured to find someone who understands the strangeness of her new existence, but Delaney soon discovers that Troy’s motives aren’t quite what she thought. Is their gift a miracle, a freak of nature—or something much more frightening? For fans of best-sellers like Before I Fall and If I Stay, this is a fascinating and heart-rending story about love and friendship and the fine line between life and death.

Megan Miranda - Az ​utolsó vendég
A ​Maine állambeli, festői szépségű Littleport mindig olyan volt, mintha két város lenne: egyfelől ideális nyaralóhely a gazdagoknak, akiknek hatalmas házai az óceán partján pompáznak, másfelől egyszerű kikötőváros, amelynek lakói a nyaralókból és a turistákból élnek. Ritkán esik meg, hogy mély barátság szövődjék egy helybéli és egy nyaraló lány között, de a littleporti Avery Greer és a nyarakat ott töltő Sadie Loman hamar összebarátkozik. A két lány majdnem egy évtizeden keresztül a nyarak minden percét egymás társaságában tölti - amíg Sadie-t holtan nem találják. A rendőrség öngyilkosságnak minősíti az esetet, ám Avery arra lesz figyelmes, hogy a kisvárosban többen is őt hibáztatják a halálesetért. Valaki többet tud, mint amennyit elárul, és Avery elszántan küzd, hogy tisztázza a nevét, mielőtt rosszakarói eltorzítják a tényeket és az igazságot. Megan Miranda a New York Times bestsellerszerzője. Az utolsó vendég, amely Reese Witherspoon könyvklubjának válogatásába is bekerült, a Publishers Weekly szerint okos, stílusos, sodró lendületű thriller arról, hogy sem az emlékezetünkben, sem a barátainkban nem bízhatunk fenntartások nélkül...

Megan Miranda - All ​the Missing Girls
Like ​the spellbinding psychological suspense in The Girl on the Train and Luckiest Girl Alive, Megan Miranda’s novel is a nail-biting, breathtaking story about the disappearances of two young women—a decade apart—told in reverse. It’s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne’s case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched. The decade-old investigation focused on Nic, her brother Daniel, boyfriend Tyler, and Corinne’s boyfriend Jackson. Since then, only Nic has left Cooley Ridge. Daniel and his wife, Laura, are expecting a baby; Jackson works at the town bar; and Tyler is dating Annaleise Carter, Nic’s younger neighbor and the group’s alibi the night Corinne disappeared. Then, within days of Nic’s return, Annaleise goes missing. Told backwards—Day 15 to Day 1—from the time Annaleise goes missing, Nic works to unravel the truth about her younger neighbor’s disappearance, revealing shocking truths about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne that night ten years ago. Like nothing you’ve ever read before, All the Missing Girls delivers in all the right ways. With twists and turns that lead down dark alleys and dead ends, you may think you’re walking a familiar path, but then Megan Miranda turns it all upside down and inside out and leaves us wondering just how far we would be willing to go to protect those we love

And now, the girl from Widow Hills is about to become the center of the story, once again, in this propulsive page-turner from suspense master Megan Miranda.

Megan Miranda - Vengeance
Nobody ​really believes in a curse. Until you know the people who disappear. Too much coincidence, you look for reason. Too much death, you grasp for something to blame. Carson pulled Delaney out and he died on the side of the road with her mouth pressed to his. Her air in his body. Troy. She told the cops it was suicide. Didn't matter. The lake released her and grabbed another. But when Decker's father dies in a pool of spilled water on their kitchen floor, all Decker can feel is a slow burning rage. Because he knows that Delaney knew that his dad was going to die. She knew and backed out of his house and never said a word. Falcon Lake still has a hold on them both, and Decker can't forgive Delaney until he knows why.
