Indigo CEO and Chief Booklover Heather Reisman is announcing a new Heather's Pick for March: The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney.

This wickedly smart, funny and deeply felt debut novel about four adult siblings and the fate of their long depended-upon family inheritance will keep readers captivated until the very last page.

On a wintry afternoon in New York City, Melody, Beatrice and Jack Plumb gather to confront their charismatic and reckless older brother, Leo, who has just been released from rehab. Leo's bad behavior before entering rehab, culminating in a car crash while under the influence, a nineteen-year-old waitress beside him, has left the Plumbs' joint trust fund "The Nest," as they've taken to calling it, endangered. All four siblings, at very different places in their lives, believe that this money will solve a host of self-inflicted problems and their consequences.

Tender, funny and deftly written, The Nest explores what money does to relationships, what happens to our ambitions over the course of our lives, and the fraught but unbreakable ties we have with our families.

March's Staff Pick of the Month is The Widow by Fiona Barton.

A loving husband or a heartless killer... She'd know, wouldn't she?

There's a lot Jean hasn't said over the years about the crime her husband was suspected of committing. She was busy being the perfect wife, standing by her man while living with accusing glares and anonymous harassment. Now her husband is dead, and there's no reason to stay quiet. People want to hear her story. They want to know what it was like living with that man. She can tell them there were secrets. There always are in a marriage.

The truth--that's all anyone wants. But the one lesson Jean has learned in the last few years is that she can make people believe anything. For the reporter who has secured the exclusive interview, this is the scoop of a lifetime. For the detective who has lived a half-life since he failed to get justice for the victim, it is a chance to get at the truth that has eluded him for so long. For Jean, it's a chance to defend herself, what she knew--and when.

This is the tale of a missing child, narrated by the wife of the main suspect, the detective leading the hunt, and the journalist covering the case. It's a brilliantly ominous, psychologically acute portrait of a marriage in crisis--perfect for fans of Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.
