Time for another round of titles that our patrons have enjoyed. Feel free to leave your own suggestions in the comments or stop by the Reader Services Desk and “talk books” with us!
Midnight Riot by Ben Aaronovitch. A fun mix of police procedural and fantasy (wizards, gods and goddesses) that some have called “Harry Potter for grown-ups.”
Durable Goods–The first in the Kate Nash trilogy by Elizabeth Berg. “So sweet and can be enjoyed by readers of all ages.”
Several patrons have mentioned the mystery series written by Andrea Camilleri featuring Sicilian detective Inspector Montalbano. The first in the series is The Shape of Water.
Thirteenth Night: A Medieval Mystery by Allen Gordon has an interesting premise: Feste, a minor character in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, is actually a top operative of the Fools’ Guild, an organization of professional jesters who double as secret agents. “Entertaining!”
Capital by John Lanchester. A dramatic look at the lives of people of various classes in contemporary London. “Really good story–I’ve shared it with friends and they’ve liked it, too.”
Anything by Jonathan Tropper–fast and funny (sarcastic) reads–sometimes get a little raunchy and always enjoyable.
Mrs. Kennedy and Me by Clint Hill (973.922 HILL). Written by the Secret Service agent assigned to guard Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. A fascinating look at the Kennedys and those who guarded them.
