If You Like Steph Cha Books, You’ll Love…

Cha’s real breakout was Your House Will Pay: A Novel. The book takes place in a tough time in Los Angeles when a black teenager has been shot by the police which leads to unrest and a tense city. Grace Park is largely oblivious to all this though as she lives a sheltered life in the Valley with her Korean immigrant parents. Shawn Matthews is in a similar spot as he’s tired of the protest and politics, but for much different reasons: an act of violence that shattered his own family years ago. That event is directly tied to Grace though and when another act of violence strikes the city, both the Park and Matthews will be forced to face down their own histories as the city is on the brink of violence once again.

Follow Her Home is the first book in the Juniper Song Mysteries series. The book introduces us to Juniper who is a bit of an amateur sleuth. As a kid, noir fiction was her favorite and she wanted to be just like Philip Marlowe. When her friend Luke thinks that his father is having an affair with one of his employees, Juniper Song is all too eager to take up the case. Things get all too real for her in a hurry though when she is knocked out and finds a dead body in her trunk. Song finds herself drawn into a case that goes far beyond anything she previously imagined.
