The Dreamers
by Karen Thompson Walker

Submitted by Kelly K.
A student falls asleep in a California college town and does not wake up.  So begins an epidemic of a sleeping sickness, affecting people from all walks of life. What follows in the ensuing quarantine situation is a finely spun crisis tale, which keeps the suspense and intrigue high while exploring humanity through well-developed characters. The audio version narrated by Cassandra Campbell is especially good.  (New Fiction)

Heat Wave: A Social Autopsy of Disaster in Chicago
by Eric Klinenberg

Submitted by Lynn M.
A well-argued analysis of an event that should be remembered alongside the Great Chicago Fire, the Eastland Disaster and the Our Lady of the Angels school fire as one of Chicago’s great tragedies ... but probably won’t be. (Non-Fiction)

The Later Comers
by Helen Klein Ross

Submitted by Terri S.
The Latecomers is a richly detailed, enjoyable historical family drama that spans five generations over the course of one hundred years. I was in search of an audiobook to fall deep into, and this book really drew me in. The reader does a beautiful job narrating the story, which is told in crisscrossing timelines. Rich with detailed history, romance and dark family secrets, this superb novel is sure to please readers (and listeners) who enjoy being swept away to another time and place. (Audiobook-Fiction)

The Witch of Willow Hall
by Hester Fox

Submitted by Kim S.
Historical, Gothic, Suspense and Romance all rolled into one. Welcome to the Boston in the 1800s where propriety and appearances are everything. Rumors swirl and the Montrose family is forced to leave Boston for the remote Willow Hall. Even in the remote backcountry, the three Montrose sisters are bound by the rules of polite society and there is a price to be paid for breaking them. This darkly haunting and suspenseful romance will keep you spellbound as you uncover the tragedies that swirl all around Willow Hall and all of its inhabitants, past and present. (New Fiction)
