Summer's Edge by Dana Mele

Young adult author Dana Mele's second book, Summer's Edge, has been compared to a cross between I Know What You Did Last Summer and The Haunting of Hill House. It follows the reunion of four friends a year after the tragic death of one of their once-inseparable group. An unintentional fire in the summer lake house claimed Emily's life. However, it becomes clear that Emily's death wasn't really an accident when the four remaining friends visit the lake house, which has been restored, and that the person responsible is inside the house seeking vengeance.

The It Girl by Ruth Ware

The new novel by author Ruth Ware shows why she is deserving of the moniker "the Agatha Christie of our day." At Oxford, April Clarke-Cliveden was the "it" girl. It stung more when April was killed by the end of their freshman year because she had made an imprint on school and on the lives of her friends, particularly Hannah Jones. A writer calls Hannah ten years after April was killed with fresh information that appears to show the guy convicted of her murder was actually innocent, and her close-knit group of college pals may be more responsible than she originally believed.
