A Novel
by Louise Penny
(Minotaur)

"Armand Gamache is back, and it was worth the wait. As the new leader of the Surete academy, Gamche is working to stop corruption at its source and ensure the best start for the cadets. When a copy of an old map is found near the body of a dead professor, Gamache and Beauvoir race against the clock to find the killer before another person dies. A terrific novel that blends Penny's amazing lyrical prose with characters that resonate long after the book ends. Highly recommended."

Wolf Road by Beth Lewis

A western-like read with post apocalyptic background referred to in the book as the "Big Stupid", this story centers on the survival of a young wild girl, Elka, who ran away from her Grandmother when she was seven and ended up being raised by a trapper in the woods.
I enjoyed this book even after the most horrifying reveal at the end.

Security by Gina Wohlsdorf

A debut quick read thriller. A murderous mess that had me glued to my seat until I had read the last page. Not for the squeamish.

A Green and Ancient Light by Frederic S. Durbin

This book was simply a magical, delightful, reading escape. A boy, his grandmother, a Faun, and a wounded soldier, all in a magical ancient garden of statues that hold a puzzle to a secret, to be discovered one summer.

A Novel

“Once on the fast-track to academic stardom, Jason Dessen finds his quiet family life and career upended when a stranger kidnaps him.  Suddenly Jason's idle "what-ifs" become panicked "what-nows," as the humble quantum physics professor from a small Chicago college gets to explore the roads not taken with a mind-bending invention that opens doors to other worlds.  This fun science fiction thriller is also a thoughtful page-turner with heart that should appeal to fans of Harlan Coben.
--Elizabeth Eastin, Rogers Memorial Library, Southampton, NY
