Praise for Every Now and Then:
Every Now and Then hits it out of the park with Kagen’s trademark folksy vernacular, larger-than-life escapades…and characters who mix the innocence of their age with a certain grown up wisdom. If you are a Kagen fan, you’ll recognize this winning combination right away. If not, get on the bandwagon! Every Now and Then is for everyone who loves a good story.”
—Jill Miner, owner of Saturn Booksellers

“Using true-to-life regional language, Kagen offers us a delightful, entertaining book with very serious undertones…I certainly recommend this book!”
—Nancy Simpson-Brice, Book Vault

A wry, winning story told in the enchanting voice of adolescence and with the pitch perfect vernacular of 1960. Filled with secrets, lies, and all the truth of what is to be human, especially in a small town, Every Now and Then is a story every heart will embrace.”
William Kent Krueger, New York Times Bestselling Author of Ordinary Grace and This Tender Land

“With a grace reminiscent of Pat Conroy’s The Prince of Tides, Lesley Kagen paints a tragic and evocative of a childhood summer disrupted by tragedy in 1960s Wisconsin. Every Now and Then, a haunting story of three young friends besieged by unthinkable horror, is both a memorable coming of age tale and suspenseful page-turner. Longtime and new fans of Kagen will delight!”
Pam Jenoff, New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Girls of Paris

“Lesley Kagen’s Every Now and Then ticks all the best boxes…This novel is delightful and the perfect summer read.” 
—Laurie Frankel, New York Times bestselling author of This Is How It Always Is

“Kagen’s trademark blend of childhood curiosity and hidden mysteries shines in this richly imagined coming-of-age adventure. In the sweltering summer heat of 1960, three young friends become entangled in secrets and life-threatening evil that shakes their small Wisconsin town to its core and impacts their lives forever.”
—Beth Hoffman, New York Times bestselling author of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

“A rollicking good read!” 
—Ellen Marie Wiseman, bestselling author of What She Left Behind and The Orphan Collector

“A poignant, beautifully told story…with characters that leap off the page, mysteries both innocent and evil, multi-leveled humor and twists you never see coming, this novel is delightful and unputdownable – I can’t recommend it enough!” 
—Jane Healey, bestselling author of The Beantown Girls

“At turns nostalgic, haunting and edge-of-your-seat suspenseful, Every Now and Then is another triumph from Lesley Kagen.”
—Wendy Webb, #1 Amazon Charts bestselling author of Daughters of the Lake

Praise for Whistling in the Dark:
