A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice
by Curtis Sittenfeld
(Random House)

“Love, sex, and relationships in contemporary Cincinnati provide an incisive social commentary set in the framework of Pride and Prejudice. Sittenfeld’s inclusion of a Bachelor-like reality show is a brilliant parallel to the scrutiny placed on characters in the neighborhood balls of Jane Austen’s novel, and readers will have no question about the crass nature of the younger Bennets, or the pride—and prejudice—of the heroine.” --Leslie DeLooze, Richmond Memorial Library, Batavia, NY

All Things Cease to Appear by Elizabeth Brundage

A young couple moves from the city to just outside a small town in the country. The farmhouse they buy has an unhappy past and a spirit that has stayed perhaps to warn. The book opens with the man coming home from work to discover his wife murdered but his 3 year old daughter untouched. The book goes back in time to tell the story of the troubled boys who used to call the farm house home, the young wife who intuitively feels that something just isn't right but is powerless to change, and the true character of the husband revealed through the stories of his past. Very good.

Off the Grid by C.J. Box

I picked up this book because of course it is a Joe Pickett novel but also because of the title. It is what I'm sure we would all like to do some days, go off the grid. You may change you mind after reading this story.
Ranger Joe, Wyoming, Grizzly bear, terrorists, his friend Nate - need I say more? Enjoy!

Passenger by Lisa Lutz

What could have happened in her hometown that would make a young woman be on the run for years, changing her identity to stay hidden? Why is she staying in contact with one person from her past by email? Who made her the scapegoat? A very good story that will keep you guessing!
