Linda's Picks:

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • The triumphant true story of a woman who rode her horse across America in the 1950s, fulfilling her dying wish to see the Pacific Ocean.   

“The gift Elizabeth Letts has is that she makes you feel you are the one taking this trip. This is a book we can enjoy always but especially need now.”—Elizabeth Berg 

A moving parable that explores honesty, survival, revenge and devotion, The Little Liar is Mitch Albom at his very best. Narrated by the voice of Truth itself, it is a timeless story about the harm we inflict with our deceits, and the power of love to ultimately redeem us. 

Lillian Haswell, brilliant daughter of the local apothecary, yearns for more adventure and experience than life in her father's shop and their small village provides. She also longs to know the truth behind her mother's disappearance, which villagers whisper about but her father refuses to discuss.  

Erin's Picks:

Although it seems as if books of this genre are a dime a dozen, this one caught my attention. With Emma Straub's passion for setting a scene, you feel as if you are right in the middle of Spain with this dysfunctional and hard not to love family.

I am bringing back this favorite after reading the sequel "The Housemaids Secret". This is a must read for all psychological thriller lovers and those who adore a good twist at the end. 

While I wasn't a huge fan of The Nest, this book is remarkably different, and a refreshing read. Flora is an underdog you will be rooting for and hoping the best until the end.
