Preppy Little Liars by Amber Turner

HardBook Cover_Amber Turner_FRONTMeg Little desperately wants to be editor-in-chief of the Haverton Gazette after the former editor resigns to complete a stint in rehab for a raging Adderall addiction.

When Margaret Bean, Haverton Prep’s star equestrian, is bucked from her horse two weeks before regionals, Meg believes she may have found the story that will win her the coveted editorship. Margaret’s a gold medal-winning rider – she doesn’t make mistakes.

But the rest of the school buys her fall as an accident. Even the Gazette’s lead photographer and Meg’s best friend Stephen thinks the fall was innocuous – until Meg shows him a photo of Margaret’s horse sporting a cut saddle after Margaret’s fall. Clearly the “accident” was sabotage.

Meg’s prime suspect: Margaret’s teammate and Meg’s arch-nemesis Kitty Cooper. Kitty’s the only member of the team who was MIA after the fall and she’s acting way too shifty for Meg’s taste. Against Margaret’s wishes to let broken girls lie, Meg launches an investigation into the girls’ private lives convinced her amateur sleuthing will uncover the evidence needed to take down Kitty once and for all.

As regionals approaches and the investigation veers off in unexpected directions, Meg learns the students of Haverton are far more dangerous than their plaid skirts and blazers suggest – and all the little liars on Margaret’s team have something to hide.

“When Daddy Comes Home”: When Opal Brown’s husband leaves her for another woman, she doesn’t get angry – she gets determined to keep her family together at all costs. They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and Opal plans to make him a meal he’ll never forget.

Max seems oddly detached from the tragedy and has invented a young friend named Edgar he talks to in secret in the middle of the night. Most kids his age have imaginary friends so Maggie tries not to be concerned – that is, until Max confides in her his young friend is actually an adult who comes to play with him when his mommy is sleeping.

and

“The Storyteller”: Elizabeth’s house has been on the market for weeks with no interest. One day, an old woman with a dead hand appears on her doorstep asking to see the place.

Dark Tales: eVolume Two by Elle Chambers

Four unsettling tales to read in the dark. For fans of Tales from the Crypt and Tales from the Darkside:

“Obituary”: She was known by her colleagues as “Lady Death.” Of all the monikers Gretchen Huggins had acquired over the years—Weirdo, Mouth-breather, Lesbian Succubitch from Hell—that one was the most accurate description. When one of Gretchen’s coworkers makes a play for a job at The Enquirer she believes is rightfully hers, she discovers just how accurate her nickname truly is.

“Recalling Past Lives”: Carl Willis visits his ailing grandfather in the hospital and hears a disturbing confession that may or may not be the delusions of a dementia-addled brain.

“Old Flame”: After twenty years of longing, Randall gets to spend the night with his childhood crush. But a lot has changed since they were in high school and the dream of his youth may be a real nightmare.

“Lost and Found”: Twelve-year-old Josephine Harvey has a favorite teacher named Mr. Jones. Mr. Jones has a predilection for pain—and small children. What happens when he offers her a ride home from school one day is a chilling study of abuse, imprisonment, and terror.
