"When the Stars Go Dark"
by Paula McLain
April 2021 Indie Next List
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Wife comes an atmospheric novel of intertwined destinies and heart-wrenching suspense: A detective hiding away from the world. A series of disappearances that reach into her past. Can solving them help her heal?
Anna Hart is a seasoned missing persons detective in San Francisco with far too much knowledge of the darkest side of human nature. When tragedy strikes her personal life, Anna, desperate and numb, flees to the Northern California village of Mendocino to grieve. She lived there as a child with her beloved foster parents, and now she believes it might be the only place left for her. Yet the day she arrives, she learns that a local teenage girl has gone missing.

"What Comes After"
by Joanne Tompkins
April 2021 Indie Next List
One of O, The Oprah Magazine's MOST ANTICIPATED BOOKS OF 2021
In misty, coastal Washington State, Isaac lives alone with his dog, grieving the recent death of his teenage son, Daniel. Next door, Lorrie, a working single mother, struggles with a heinous act committed by her own teenage son. Separated by only a silvery stretch of trees, the two parents are emotionally stranded, isolated by their great losses-until an unfamiliar sixteen-year-old girl shows up, bridges the gap, and changes everything.

"Pieces of Home"
by Lisa Mercado-Fernandez
Bucks County Author
Pieces of Home is Lisa's latest book about her home.  It is a journey through her house and always evolving style in home decor.  It's not another design book telling you what to do and not to do. Nor is it a book showing rooms and gardens that are way beyond what you could ever attempt to replicate. It is just her journey trying to find her style.  She introduces you to her decor influences and points out how each one has touched her life and her home.  It is a fun and inviting book that hopefully will help to inspire, entertain and motivate you to believe in your own sense of style or point you in the direction of finding your own.


"Subtract : The Untapped Science of Less"
by Leidy Klotz
Blending evidence across science and design, Subtract: The Untapped Science of Less offers a revolution in problem-solving: proving why we overlook subtraction, and how we can access its true potential
We pile on "to-dos" but don't consider "stop-doings." We create incentives for good behavior, but don't get rid of obstacles to it. We collect new-and-improved ideas, but don't prune the outdated ones. Every day, across challenges big and small, we neglect a basic way to make things better: we don't subtract.  Read more...
