Faithful Place

Faithful Place

Author:
The third book in her Dublin Murder Squad series, which can be read in any order, follows detective Frank Mackey and the demons from his past. When he was 19, Frank planned to run off with his girlfriend Rosie Daly: they would cut ties to home, get married, and start a new life in England. When Rosie didn't show, Frank assumed she changed her mind and left without him. But 22 years later, Rosie's suitcase is found hidden in their planned meeting spot. Frank never got over her, and he'll do whatever it takes to uncover what happened. French tells a great story and will take you to plot school. (Hot tip: the fabulous accents in the audio version bring it to life.) More info →

The Secret to Hummingbird Cake

The Secret to Hummingbird Cake

From the publisher: "I'd been trying to get Laine's recipe for years. We all had. When all else fails, turn to the divine taste of hummingbird cake. In the South you always say 'yes, ma'am' and 'no, ma'am.' You know everybody's business. Football is a lifestyle not a pastime. Food—especially dessert—is almost a religious experience. And you protect your friends as fiercely as you protect your family. In this spot-on Southern novel brimming with wit and authenticity, you'll laugh alongside lifelong friends, navigate the sometimes rocky path of marriage, and roll through the outrageous curveballs that life sometimes throws . . . from devastating pain to absolute joy. And if you're lucky, you just may discover the secret to hummingbird cake along the way." More info →

The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake

The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake

Author:
Libro.fm is running a sale on several titles this month. They're my go-to for audiobooks these days; read more about Libro.fm here. No membership required for most sale prices, including this one. The ebook is not on sale. From the publisher: "On the eve of her ninth birthday, unassuming Rose Edelstein, a girl at the periphery of schoolyard games and her distracted parents' attention, bites into her mother's homemade lemon-chocolate cake and discovers she has a magical gift: she can taste her mother's emotions in the cake. She discovers this gift to her horror, for her mother—her cheerful, good-with-crafts, can-do mother—tastes of despair and desperation. Suddenly, and for the rest of her life, food becomes a peril and a threat to Rose. Yet as Rose grows up she learns to harness her gift and becomes aware that there are secrets even her taste buds cannot discern." More info →

Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love

Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love

Author:
I haven't been able to resist recommending this everywhere—on the Summer Reading Guide and more than one episode of What Should I Read Next. This is Shapiro's story about how she very recently discovered a life-changing, identity-threatening secret about her family, and what happened next. At this point I think it's fair to call this Shapiro's breakthrough book. If you've enjoyed Shapiro's work in the past, like her most recent memoir Hourglass: Time, Memory, Marriage, I recommend you avoid the spoiler-laden reviews (that specify what that family secret is) and dive right in. Inheritance reads like a twisty mystery, full of false starts and dead ends, but with a lot of help, some from unlikely places, she solves her case in the end. More info →

The Ten Thousand Doors of January

The Ten Thousand Doors of January

Author:
A gateway fantasy, a fantasy novel for people who don't like fantasy. I listened to the mesmerizing audio version (narrated by January LaVoy; Audible narration add on available) and then read it with the MMD Book Club (and chatted with Alix, so fun!). This novel combines so many elements I love: it's a literary mystery, a book about books, a coming-of-age story, a tale of adventure and suspense and revenge. This was creative and inventive and lots of fun. More info →

Binti

Binti

Author:
I've been reading the Binti trilogy, winner of the Hugo and Nebula awards, and the whole series is at a great price right now. The Binti trilogy sat on my To Be Read list for too long. This novella drops you right into another galaxy where Binti is the first of her people to receive an offer to attend Oomza University, basically an ivy league college. Accepting the offer requires a huge sacrifice and a treacherous journey. I sped through this quick audiobook (whispersync narration available) thanks to excellent narration and a propulsive plot.

Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living

Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living

Author:
Libro.fm is running a sale on several titles this month. They're my go-to for audiobooks these days; read more about Libro.fm here. No membership required for most sale prices, including this one. Tippett calls herself a person who listens for a living: this is her distillation of several decades worth of wisdom gleaned from probing interviews with a wide array of guests. She hones in on five "raw materials" for living well: words, flesh, love, faith, and hope, and hopefully explores how they can be channeled toward compassion, forgiveness, and love. If it all sounds a bit esoteric, you can trust that the same curiosity that makes her show On Being so addictive serves her well in this format. (Whispersync narration available, read by Tippett.) Deep, thoughtful, profound: Even if you're the sort who usually finishes a book in a few days' time, this would be wonderful read a few pages a day. Pair with The Light of the World. More info →

The Swans of Fifth Avenue

The Swans of Fifth Avenue

Libro.fm is running a sale on several titles this month. They're my go-to for audiobooks these days; read more about Libro.fm here. No membership required for most sale prices, including this one. The ebook is not on sale. The author of The Aviator's Wife returns with more biographical fiction. This time the story revolves around Truman Capote and the circle of "swans" he drew around him in 1950s and 60s New York City—wealthy society women such as Gloria Guinness, Slim Keith, and most of all, Babe Paley. But Capote is a storyteller above all, and when he publishes a thinly concealed story detailing the swans' deepest secrets, chaos ensues. I recommend this to Stacey Loscalzo in episode 29 of What Should I Read Next. More info →

No Place For A Lady

Author:
When we talked with author Jennifer Robson last summer for the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club, she recommended Gill Paul as a talented writer who is well known in the UK, but who should be better known here in the States. Now they're on my TBR. From the publisher: "The year is 1854, and Britain is in the grip of a gruesome war. Dorothea Gray has not seen her little sister Lucy since she eloped with the handsome Captain Charlie Harvington and set sail for the Crimea. Now, as the war worsens and the battlefields darken with blood, Dorothea must risk everything to find her sister and join Florence Nightingale in the Crimean hospitals, nursing the injured soldiers back to health. Can these two sisters find their way back to each other? A spellbinding tale of courage, adventure and true love." More info →

Big Summer

Big Summer

Author:
I found this book to be a delightful, engrossing, just-the-right-amount-of-zany surprise. Our heroine is Daphne Berg, a popular plus-size fashion influencer. Daphne’s hard-earned equilibrium is rattled when her old frenemy Drue surfaces after a 7-year absence, begging Daphne to lend her platform and presence to Drue’s high-society wedding to a reality tv star. Daphne’s instincts say no, but she’s never been able to resist her charming friend. Soon enough, she’s at a million-dollar affair on Cape Cod, learning the troubled bride she’s attending engineered the whole event with social media in mind—right down to the brand sponsorships Drue sold for big bucks. And that’s when things really take a turn for the worse. A fun and fresh tale of female friendship, family secrets, influencer culture, and love. More info →
