Need a read for the long Memorial Day weekend? Here are the new books out in stores this week that we recommend curling up with.
From the bestselling author who brought us The Kite Runner (one of the best books we’ve read) and A Thousand Splendid Suns comes another beautifully written and moving tale. Spanning more than half a century, Hosseini’s story take us from Kabul and Paris, to San Francisco and the Greek isles, and shows us how the choices we make have consequences that last for generations.
We’re suckers for Scottish romances and this one looks delightful. Lily Balfour’s family would prefer if she married the Earl of Huntley, a wealthy widower who could save them from financial ruin. Lily knows that the Earl is sweet, kind and perfectly attractive, but when she sets her sights on the charming, passionate—and completely unprincipled—Prince Wulfinski she must decide…is power and money more important than true love?
In this age of technology and cyber-bullying, this story couldn’t be timelier. When Ashleigh’s boyfriend Kaleb heads to college, she gives him quite the gift to remember her while he’s away—a text message containing her naked picture. Bad idea. When their breakup turns ugly, Kaleb sends the text to his baseball team, and, of course, the picture soon goes viral. Ashleigh feels isolated and alone—until she meets the one guy in town who can offer her a fresh start. This powerful story will make everyone think about what it means to be a true friend.
This intriguing, suspenseful mystery follows detective Maeve Kerrigan as she tries to find a killer who murdered a mother and teenage girl in South London. The only witnesses are the younger daughter, who refuses to say a word, and the husband, who was found in the house bloody and unconscious. Is he another victim—or is there something more sinister at play?
