Unplug: A Simple Guide to Meditation for Busy Skeptics and Modern Soul Seekers
by Suze Yalof

Submitted by Kelly K.

OK, I admit that I meditate. It has become an integral reflection/recharge time and I find it helps me to deal with the challenges of a busy life. I was not always receptive to it, and that’s where this book can help. It’s not that hard to be calm, present and happy – just follow the insights Suze Yalof provides and see what happens! We’re hoping to hold a more regular mediation series here at the library this coming winter – watch your newsletter for more details.

Emma in the Night
by Wendy Walker
Submitted by Terri S.

Late one night two sisters vanish. Three years later one returns with a bizarre story of kidnapping and betrayal, which just doesn’t add up with the forensic psychiatrist who has spent years trying to solve the case. A page turner full of twists and turns with an ending that made my jaw drop. For fans of Mary Kubica, Paula Hawkins and Ruth Ware.

The Lying Game
by Ruth Ware

Submitted by Kelly K.  

If you read In a Dark, Dark Wood or The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware, drop everything and pick up her latest, The Lying Game . It’s full of the same tense, psychological suspense that made her first two books so popular, but this time there is more emphasis on characters (can you figure out who to trust?) and a deeper, intriguing plot.  5 Stars!
