Behind Her Eyes
Why is everyone talking about the ending of Sarah Pinborough's Behind Her Eyes? David and Adele seem like the ideal pair.

As Louise, David's new secretary, is drawn into their orbit, she uncovers more puzzling questions than answers. The only thing that is crystal clear is that something in this marriage is very, very wrong. Superb psychological suspense from horror meister Pinborough (The Language of Dying, 2016).
Can't. Just. Stop.: An Investigation of Compulsions
Begley’s book is the first of its kind to examine compulsive behaviors, both mild (hanging a tea towel just so) and extreme (obsessive compulsive disorder, hoarding, exercise addiction, even compulsions to do good). Begley argues that while all forms of compulsion look incredibly different, they are actually all coping responses to varying degrees of anxiety. With a focus on personal stories, Begley explores the brain science behind compulsion and how we can realistically overcome it.
Never Caught: The Washingtons' Relentless Pursuit of Their Runaway Slave, Ona Judge
As President George Washington’s second term was ending, one of his slaves escaped to freedom, never to return. Oney “Ona” Judge (1773-1848) was born into slavery and worked as a dressmaker and attendant for First Lady Martha Washington. Judge fled to New Hampshire and started a new life there, despite repeated attempts by an angry Washington and his slave hunters to capture and return her to his plantation. Dunbar’s debut is “a startling, well-researched slave narrative.” (Kirkus Reviews)
On Second Thought

Devastated, Ainsley turns to her older half-sister, Kate, who's struggling with a sudden loss of her own. Despite the murky blended-family dynamic that's always separated them, Ainsley's and Kate's heartaches bind them together when they come to terms with the imperfection of relationships and family--and the possibility of one day finding love again. A poignant family drama from the author of Anything for You (2016).
Things We Have in Common

When Yasmin notices a man watching Alice from the school fence, she believes he is going to abduct Alice. Yasmin decides to befriend the man so that when he does take Alice, Yasmin will be the only one who can save her. But as Yasmin discovers more about him, her feelings begin to shift. Perhaps she was wrong about him. Perhaps she doesn't need Alice after all. And then Alice vanishes. A supremely creepy debut thriller.
