Whether or not you’re on summer vacation, this week’s new releases are an excellent excuse to find some down time for a reading holiday.
If you’ve never experienced a Deborah Knott mystery, now is the time to give it a try. Deborah runs to the bedside of her dear Aunt Rachel assuming the worst—and is surprised to find that Rachel is awake and talking. The family’s elation turns to horror when she is found dead an hour later, suffocated with a pillow. Was this a mercy killing or cold blooded murder? Deborah and her husband, Sheriff’s Deputy Dwight Bryant, investigate…and discover that Rachel’s seemingly incoherent last words are the key to finding the killer.
We can’t wait to check out this debut novel that looks to be absolutely charming. Tom is an English professor living a life of quiet desperation, filled with loneliness and books, and taking care of his wife Marjory who had a nervous breakdown a decade ago after discovering his affair. When Rose, an intriguing new woman in town, begins working at the campus bookstore, Marjory surprises everyone by inviting her over for dinner. As Tom starts to believe there might be more to life, he receives a shocking letter from his former mistress telling him about the son he never knew he had. It might not be what he expected, but after all this time perhaps having a family is more than just a possibility.
