Book. Book. Book. Book. Book.


The French Girl by Lexie Elliott. I read the big font on the cover and thought this was a new novel from Tana French. Nope. Six English college pals on vacation in Oxford meet a neighbor woman who disappears. Ten years later the neighbor's body is discovered and things happen.

The French Girl by Lexie Elliott. This is the exact same book but part of our Lucky Day Collection. That means the book goes right back to shelf after it is returned. The book does not fill any hold requests.

Sunburn by Laura Lippman. Who know who really enjoys Laura Lippman novels? Megan Abbott. Abbott is a Big Deal Author and I pay attention to what she says.

Death of an Honest Man by M.C. Beaton. The honest man is also a jerk. So someone killed him.

Fifty Fifty by James Patterson Literary Industries, Amalgamated and Candice Fox. Australian police officer Harriet Blue has an outburst at her brother's parole hearing and is punished by an assignment to the middle of the Outback. When the 75 person town is threatened with massacre Blue does something or other.
