A funny (and realistic!) look at family dinnertime when you have multiple children. We enjoyed reading this as a family and comparing the cats to each of us.  Library Catalog

An interesting story set in England in the early 1830's. A young prostitute/pottery helper, a couple of doctors and a coholevavibrio epidemic. Lots of people die, but there is a potential happy ending.  Library Catalog

The Rumor
Author
Elin Hilderbrand
Review
Rumors are often based on truth, especially the hurtful ones. An affair, a break-up, and a desperate try to avoid bankruptcy are just some of the rumors floating around Nantucket during one eventful summer. Strongly defined characters help bring the many storylines together.   Library Catalog

A Fatal Grace
Author
Louise Penny
Review
The second book of "A Chief Inspector Gamache"series, this murder mystery returns to the setting of Three Pines, a small village in Quebec. Consequently, most of the characters are familiar from the first book, Still Life. The murder of CC de Poitiers is solved, of course, while more of the history of the Chief Inspector's career is revealed in an intriguing subplot involving his stalled career and his relationship with his bosses. A satisfying read although not as good as the first. I do plan to continue in the series.  Library Catalog
