Lariat Adult Fiction Reading List 2023 is here!

Since 2009, the goal of Lariat adult fiction reading list is to highlight outstanding fiction that is “simply a pleasure to read”. To that end, a committee of librarians of the Texas Library Association selects 25 outstanding fiction titles each year.

In the The Hacienda by Isabel Cañas, Beatriz moves to Haciendo San Isidro full of optimism for her life with her new husband, ignoring rumors of the sudden disappearance of his first wife. But home is not the refuge she hopes for. Will a young priest, Father Andres, be able to help her fight the evil spirits that haunt her new home? Jane Austen fans will enjoy The Murder of Mr. Wickhamfrom which the author Claudia Gray kills the villain Pride and Prejudice in a fun whodunit featuring many of Austen’s best-loved characters and their children. In the The Paris apartment by Lucy Foley, Jess arrives in Paris to find her brother Ben missing. As she begins to investigate his disappearance, she discovers intimate details of the other residents of the Paris apartment building where Ben lives, and all are suspects.

You’ll find these and many more wonderful titles in this year’s list.
