First novels

tabbyonbooks2When choosing my next book I confess I most often follow certain authors.  Like most readers, I have my favourites and tend to stick to them.  However, that being said, there is nothing quite so rewarding as discovering a new author.  First time novelists may not have honed their craft to perfection, but often times they surprise us with their professionalism.  Many are award winners the first time out.  Three of my recent favourite first novels are: “Still Life” by Louise Penny; “Never tell a lie” by Hallie Ephron and “Tethered” by Amy MacKinnon.
