From the Summer Reading Guide. Federal Agent Aaron Falk returns in Harper’s standalone follow-up to her bestselling debut The Dry, with a premise reminiscent of Picnic at Hanging Rock. Alice Russell is Falk’s insider source on a big money-laundering case he’s been working. When Alice disappears during a wilderness expedition with some of the targets of the probe, Falk suspects foul play and rushes to aid in the search. Falk and his teammate soon discover Alice and her respective team members each kept deadly secrets and bore old grudges. If he is to untangle the mystery, he must first untangle the knotted relationships. The setting, Australia's brooding (and fictional) Giralang Ranges, is a character in itself in this intricately-plotted procedural. Add Audible narration for $12.99. More info →

$7.99$1.99Audiobook: 7.49 (Whispersync)
Author:
From the publishers: "Spirits were high when the Fairchild F-227 took off from Mendoza, Argentina, and headed for Santiago, Chile. On board were forty-five people, including an amateur rugby team from Uruguay and their friends and family. The skies were clear that Friday, October 13, 1972, and at 3:30 p.m., the Fairchild's pilot reported their altitude at 15,000 feet. But one minute later, the Santiago control tower lost all contact with the aircraft. For eight days, Chileans, Uruguayans, and Argentinians searched for it, but snowfall in the Andes had been heavy, and the odds of locating any wreckage were slim. Ten weeks later, a Chilean peasant in a remote valley noticed two haggard men desperately gesticulating to him from across a river. He threw them a pen and paper, and the note they tossed back read: 'I come from a plane that fell in the mountains . . .' Alive is the dramatic bestselling account of one of the most harrowing quests for survival in modern times." Add Audible narration for $7.49. More info →

Author:
I'd heard great things about this little handbook, but I couldn't get over the fact that the cover's little gold seal made it look like a cheesy gift book—not the kind of thing I typically read. I checked it out of the library anyway, and finally opened it out of guilt the day before it was due. I was riveted. This pithy little guidebook is devoted to deliberate practice. Skipping over abstract theories, Coyle shoots straight for the practicalities, sharing 52 ways to put more effective practice into your life. This surprisingly readable guide is packed with fascinating insights and practical tips covering diverse fields like sports, music, art, math, and business. This book is a gem.

Author:
This is a terrific price on a new release. From the publisher: "From the author of The Other Einstein. Clara Kelley is not who they think she is. She's not the experienced Irish maid who was hired to work in one of Pittsburgh's grandest households. She's a poor farmer's daughter with nowhere to go and nothing in her pockets. But the other woman with the same name has vanished, and pretending to be her just might get Clara some money to send back home. If she can keep up the ruse, that is. What Clara does have is a resolve as strong as the steel Pittsburgh is becoming famous for, coupled with an uncanny understanding of business, and Andrew begins to rely on her. But Clara can't let her guard down, not even when Andrew becomes something more than an employer. Revealing her past might ruin her future -- and her family's." Add Audible narration for $12.99.

I loved this. A tragedy, a romance, a coming of age story. I had to be talked into reading this novel because the description didn’t sound interesting to me, so don’t worry if it doesn’t sound good to you either. Just start reading and you’ll be hooked. A beautiful, mesmerizing book for fans of Wendell Berry, Marilynne Robinson, and Amor Towles. File under fathers and sons, tight-knit communities, and outlaws. A gorgeous novel. More info →

From the publisher: "Shannan Martin had the perfect life: a cute farmhouse on six rambling acres, a loving husband, three adorable kids, money, friends, a close-knit church—a safe, happy existence. But when the bottom dropped out, the Martins followed God's call to something radically different: a small house on the other side of the urban tracks, a shoestring income, a challenged public school, and the harshness of a county jail (where her husband is now chaplain). And yet the family's plunge from 'safety' was the best thing that could have happened to them." Add Audible narration for $11.49. More info →

The Five Red Herrings: A Lord Peter Mystery

The Five Red Herrings: A Lord Peter Mystery

$7.99$1.99
I love this mystery series; no need to read these in order. The 7th book in Sayers' Lord Peter Wimsy series. From the publisher: "The majestic landscape of the Scottish coast in the idyllic village of Kirkcudbright, every resident and visitor has 2 things in common: They either fish or paint (or do both), and they all hate Sandy Campbell. Though a fair painter, he is a rotten human being, and cannot enter a pub without raising the blood pressure of everybody there. No one weeps when he dies. Campbell’s body is found at the bottom of a steep hill, and his easel stands at the top, suggesting that he took a tumble while painting. But something about the death doesn’t sit right with gentleman sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey. No one in Kirkcudbright liked Campbell, and 6 hated him enough to become suspects; 5 are innocent, and the other is the perpetrator of the most ingenious murder Lord Peter has ever encountered."

Dumplin’

Dumplin’

$7.99$1.99Audiobook: 12.99 (Audible)
Author:
Readers have repeatedly recommended this novel to me as "a YA book for people who don't usually like YA," and it was so much fun. Murphy combines several unlikely themes into one feel-good story: young love, a small-town beauty pageant, and Dolly Parton super-fans. The story centers on sixteen-year-old Willowdean (whose mother calls her Dumplin'), a self-described fat girl who's confident in who she is—until the cute boy at work gives her a kiss. I read this with an eye towards handing it off to my own nearly-thirteen-year-old, and I won't be doing that, but I did enjoy it for myself and am looking forward to reading more Julie Murphy novels.

Author:
I just raved about the latest from Jon Cohen recently to the MMD Book Club. This title from his backlist is one of librarian Nancy Pearl's Book Lust Rediscoveries. Pearl says Cohen is one of those writers who can take "life-affirming, heartwarming, touching, uplifting, poignant, and tender" and not have them turn into "sentimental claptrap." She goes on to describe the story of recluse Louis Malone, disfigured in a fire sixteen years ago, who has remained hidden in the small town of Waverly and Iris Shula, a lonely and unlovely nurse. When Louis accidentally falls out of his second-story window, these two kindred souls are brought together. What unfolds is a most unlikely love story. One that will make you laugh and that will break—and remake—your heart. Add Audible narration for $1.99. More info →
