Eva Tilling wakes up in the hospital to discover an attempt has been made on her life. But who in her sleepy little North Carolina town could have hit her with their car? And why? Before she can consider the question, she finds that she's awoken with a strange new skill: the ability to foresee people's deaths when they touch her. While she is recovering from the hit-and-run, Nate, an old flame, reappears, and the two must traverse their rocky past as they figure out how to use Eva's power to keep her friends — and themselves — alive. Chilling twists, unrequited obsession, and high-stakes romance drive Melissa Marr's Made for You (HarperCollins).

  1. The Moor's Account Signed Edition New Hardcover $26.95

@ 7:30 pm

In this stunning work of historical fiction, Laila Lalami brings us the imagined memoirs of the first black explorer of America — a Moroccan slave whose testimony was left out of the official record. In 1527, the conquistador Panfilo de Narvaez sailed with a crew of 600 men. His goal was to claim what is now the Gulf Coast of the United States for the Spanish crown. Within a year of landing in Florida, only four members of his expedition were left alive, including a young slave called Estebanico. The Moor's Account (Pantheon) brilliantly captures Estebanico's voice and vision, giving us an alternate narrative for this famed expedition.

David and Lesley Solmonson's The 12 Bottle Bar (Workman) is a system, a tool kit, and a recipe book. Beginning with one irresistible idea — a complete home bar of just 12 key bottles — the Solmonsons show how to make more than 200 classic and unique mixed drinks. It's a surprising guide — tequila didn't make the cut, and neither did bourbon, but genever did. It's a literate guide, too — describing with great liveliness everything from the importance of vermouth and bitters (the salt and pepper of mixology) to the story of a punch bowl so big it was stirred by a boy in a rowboat.
