Viola Shipman, author of The Recipe Box

Samantha “Sam” Mullins felt trapped on her family’s orchard and pie shop, so she left with dreams of making her own mark in the world. But life as an overworked, undervalued sous chef at a reality star’s New York bakery is not what Sam dreamed. When the chef embarrasses Sam, she quits and returns home. Unemployed, single and defeated, she spends a summer working on her family’s orchard cooking and baking alongside the women in her life --- including her mother, Deana, and grandmother, Willo.

Paperback releases for the week of October 28th include YOU DON'T OWN ME, the fifth enthralling mystery in Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke's Under Suspicion series, which finds television producer Laurie Moran having to solve the murder of a celebrity doctor --- before a mysterious stalker plots his next move; Kathy Wang's debut novel, FAMILY TRUST, a compelling tale of cultural expectations, career ambitions and our relationships with the people who know us best; THE RECIPE BOX, in which beloved author Viola Shipman spins a tale about a lost young woman and the family recipe box that changes her life; and WHAT IS IT ALL BUT LUMINOUS, Art Garfunkel's memoir (of sorts) that shows readers the evolution of a man, a portrait of a lifelong friendship, and a collaboration that became the most successful singing duo in the roiling age that embraced, and was defined by, their pathfinding folk-rock music.
