"Readers, prepare to be surprised by this unexpected and unique novel. Told from the perspective of a middle-age substitute teacher, Limelight explores the theme of family in all of its interesting and unconventional forms. The characters are breathtakingly open and honest." (RT Book Reviews )

Book of the Week
This week's Book of the Week is 'How Hard Can It Be' by Allison Pearson.

 Kate Reddy was not ready for her idyllic life to be upturned by her husband's new peace-seeking through therapy and lycra, her kids become teenage berserkers, or to have to return to the workforce as a 49-year-old professional Mom. It's a big ask, but 'How Hard Can It Be?' Turns out, it's hilariously hard, but Kate will learn that there is more to the world and to herself than she dared to dream.

June 12, 2018

With the G7 Summit on people's minds we have gotten questions about books explaining how America became what it is today. It's a complicated story, so take a look at some of the new wide-scope books on modern America. On the other hand, take your mind off current events and lose yourself in a quick, engaging read. Try something like Anthony Horowitz new mystery for mystery lovers, 'The Word is Murder'. We've got something for you to read in this sun, just ask for a recommendation!
