New Releases October 2016

I took some time away from the store this fall – and came back to piles of lovely fallen leaves and a heap of new books!

Some of the most notable are –

Precious and Grace by the prolific Alexander McCall-Smith

The 17th volume in the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency Series – sure to warm you up on a cold fall night.

Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult

As always tackling a contemporary, moral question woven into a dynamite story of a nurse who makes a tough decision that results in even tougher consequences.

When the Music’s Over by Peter Robinson

Inspector Banks returns – the books are SO much better than the TV series! Weaving a crime committed half a century ago into a modern time murder investigation, Peter Robinson is at the top of his game.

Bridget Jones’s Baby by Helen Fielding

Seems like only yesterday that Bridget Jones was a flighty young thing – now she is about to be a mother. The only question is – who is the father?

Coffin Road by Peter May

Over the top, suspenseful drama – what Peter May is known for, and again provides in a fast paced mystery set on the Isle of Harris. Pure escapist reading you’ll not want to put down.


And –

Bit Rot by Douglas Coupland

Stories and essays as this guru of the digital age shares his observations about our world.

2017 Friendship Book

This perennially popular little volume shares a thought for each day of the year.

Irena’s Children by Tilar J. Mazzeo

The Longest Night by Andria Williams

A terrific novel about a young couple whose marriage is tested when they move to an army base rife with love triangles, life-or-death conflicts, and a dramatic cover-up.


The Queen’s Accomplice by Susan Elia Macneal

Another in the Maggie Hope Mystery series. This one involves a Jack the Ripper like criminal in London during some of the darkest days of 1942.

Blood Symmetry by Kate Rhodes

Alice Quentin, forensic psychologist is brought in to investigate a case of a missing mother and a traumatized child.

For the kids

Canada ABC by Paul Covello

A very lovely board book beautifully illustrated with scenes of outdoor life in Canada.

The Fever Code by James Dashner

The newest in a very popular teen series, this is the story of how the maze was built, and the loyalties and histories that could never have been forseen.
