Today we’re bringing you the inside scoop on the must-reads that are coming to shelves just in time for your Summer cabin retreat.

From spine-tingling thrillers to steamy romances and everything in between, there is something for every outdoorsy reader looking to escape into the wilderness and into the pages of a good book.


For everyone that’s ever spent any time working a job they dislike—or with people they dislike—let us be the first to introduce you to the protagonist of this debut Canadian novel, Jolene.

In I Hope This Finds You Well, we follow an admin worker who accidentally gains access to her colleagues’ private emails and DMs and decides to use this intel to save her job.
