Jamie recommends "What Remains of Me"

What remains of me : a novel

Kelly Lund went to prison for shooting a famous Hollywood director when she was just 17. Out of prison now, she begins to try to put her life back together with her husband, the brother of her former best friend, but murder seems to follow Kelly. When her father-in-law is found dead in a pool of blood in his home, Kelly is the prime suspect. This story, told through flashback and present day, has a lot of twists and turns. It is a quick, enjoyable beach read. It's a great option for adults, especially those participating in the Summer Reading Club!

Jeannie recommends "I Let You Go"

In audio and Overdrive format.
Fantastic novel! I was actually Googling Swansea and Penfach, Wales, in search of photos of the setting because of the way it was vividly described. Realistic, gripping, with twists and turns and ups and downs. Highly recommend!
