Joshilyn Jackson, author of Never Have I Ever

Amy Whey's sweet, uncomplicated life begins to unravel when the mysterious and alluring Angelica Roux arrives on her doorstep one night. Amy knows that something wicked has come her way --- a she-devil in a pricey red sports car who seems to know the terrible truth about who she is and what she once did. Roux tells Amy that if she doesn’t give her what she asks for --- what she deserves --- she’s going to make Amy pay for her sins. To protect herself and her family, and save the life she’s built, Amy must beat the devil at her own clever game, matching wits with Roux in an escalating war of hidden pasts and unearthed secrets. Amy knows the consequences if she can’t beat Roux. What terrifies her is everything she could lose if she wins.

Never Have I Ever by Joshilyn Jackson

August 2019

In NEVER HAVE I EVER, Joshilyn Jackson is exploring a new genre, and she clearly shows that she has strong writing chops in the craft of penning suspense/thrillers.

The book opens at a neighborhood book club discussion. The usual suspects are there, but in wanders the woman who is staying at the neighborhood rental house. Hmmmm that has not happened before. She’s cooler than the rest of the women who have gathered to talk books. Angelica Roux quickly takes charge of the night and gets everyone involved in a drinking game: “Never Have I Ever.” The game seems tame at first, but then it abruptly takes on a new tone.

Week of April 27, 2020

Paperback releases for the week of April 27th include BLUE MOON by Lee Child, which finds Jack Reacher coming to the aid of an elderly couple…and confronting his most dangerous opponents yet; ELEVATOR PITCH, an edge-of-your-seat thriller from Linwood Barclay that does for elevators what Psycho did for showers and Jaws did for the beach --- a heart-pounding tale in which a series of disasters paralyzes New York City with fear; Joshilyn Jackson's NEVER HAVE I EVER, a twisting novel of domestic suspense in which a group of women play a harmless drinking game that escalates into a war of dark pasts; and THE FAMILY NEXT DOOR by true-crime writer John Glatt, which tells the devastating story of the Turpins --- a seemingly normal family whose dark secrets would shock and captivate the world.
