The home is sleek and minimalist, and is wired to anticipate the occupant’s needs. And, she finds herself drawn to the sexy, confident architect and owner. Until she learns about the previous tenant: Emma Matthews. This is a smart, psychological thriller that spins one woman’s seemingly good fortune, and another woman’s mysterious fate.

Technically the top staff pick for our ENTIRE department, this is a brilliantly mind-bending science-fiction thriller in which an ordinary man is kidnapped, knocked unconscious—and awakens in a world inexplicably different from the reality he thought he knew. Perfect for book clubs with its thoughtprovoking theme of what happens when we make one choice over another. And my favorite part was the heart wrenching struggle of our everyman hero, Jason, to return to his beloved wife and son. From the author of the bestselling Wayward Pines trilogy, this will be one of the most buzzed about books of the season!

It’s not happiness that makes life worth living—it’s meaning. Drawing on the latest cognitive science research, as well as insights from literature and philo-sophy, and her own prodigious reporting, Smith shows that by developing a “meaning mind-set,” we can all achieve a deeper satisfaction.
