New in the past few weeks are
Wintering by Peter Geye – one of my favourite authors returns with a father and son story of a wilderness trip gone wrong – a gripping story by a great writer. Perfect for Dad!
Peggy Blair brings us the 4th installment in her Inspector Ramirez series, set in a rapidly changing Havana, Cuba. Umbrella Man is as suspenseful as usual and very topical.
The Lake House by Kate Morton is now in paperback. Always a popular author, this new book combines her usual British literary fiction with a mystery that begins in 1933 and re-surfaces 70 years later.
Modern Lovers by Emma Straub is a very modern love story set in Brooklyn, as friends and lovers re-examine their past while struggling with their present lives. Both very funny and profound.
Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave tells the story of young women who want to make a difference, and young men who went off to war in the early 1940s. Brilliant, heart breaking, funny, and a great read.
