The Orenda by Joseph Boyden 
Nominated for both the Giller & the GG – and one of the current picks for this year’s Canada Reads – this novel documents the arrival of the Jesuits along the shores of Georgian Bay and their first contact with the native people in this region. Brilliantly written and told with compassion and bold truth.

Tyringham Park by Rosemary McLoughlin
A novel that will appeal to Downton Abbey fans – a mystery set at the Irish country estate of a wealthy English family. The disappearance of a child haunts the family, especially a young girl, for all of their lives. Lots of literary faults in this first novel but such an intriguing story you’ll not want to stop reading.

Death of Yesterday by MC Beaton
Ah, Hamish Macbeth. It is June in the Highlands, the midges are out and the shops are out of insect repellent and our Hamish is, as usual, struggling with his love life as he attempts to solve the murder of an arrogant and tiresome woman.

Minister Without Portfolio by Michael Winter
Once again, capturing life in small town Newfoundland – the place and the people – when a man returns from Afghanistan and sets out to restore a house where past and future collide.
