WELL READ | BOOKS WE LOVE
Tangerine by Christine Mangan

As suspenseful and atmospheric as the very best Alfred Hitchcock, with a bit of Gillian Flynn and Donna Tartt mixed in. This edgy psychological page-turner is chock full of secrets, hidden motivations and characters with shady pasts and things to hide. The exotic location – Tangiers, sets the stage for this eerie, twisted, satisfying tale, guaranteed to leave you feeling a bit unsettled. (Adult Fiction)

I Know My Name by C.J. Cooke

Told through alternating points of view – a young woman with amnesia washes ashore a deserted Greek Island. Will she ever make it off the island and how did she even get there? Flipside – an overwrought businessman with a young family at home and a job that keeps him away more often than not has just been notified his wife is missing. Excellent character development which, at times, made me feel as if I could hear their voices in another room. A creepy-great read that had me hooked from the start and guessing to the
very last page. (Adult Fiction)

Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz

The Mercy of Thin Air
by Ronlyn Domingue

Raziela (Razi) Nolan died in 1920’s Louisiana and had decided not to move on but to stay in the in-between. In life she was bold for her time and spoke resolutely about women’s rights. She was also deeply in love with Andrew but died tragically while in the throes of their love affair. As a ghostly presence, lingering the in “thin air,” she attaches herself to a bookshelf he once owned and she drifts through time inserting herself into the lives of others, but also wondering what became of her love. A finely crafted, lush and romantic tale that really gets under your skin! (Adult Fiction)

The Opposite of Hate by Sally Kohn

Sally Kohn shines a bright light on hate in The Opposite of Hate: A Field Guide to Repairing Our Humanity.  She candidly explores her own brushes with hate and explores the various genres of hate in our world today. This wise, well-researched work unpacks the possible why’s, when’s, and how’s of hate; and explains the dynamic of “other-izing” as a precursor to hate. The author’s own professional journey of knowing, and actually liking, people on the other end of the political spectrum is just one example of the hope for humanity presented in this book. A timely, fascinating read!

A Higher Loyalty by James Comey

There’s so much to delve into in this brief but revealing account, from author’s childhood experience as being the victim of cruel bullying to bringing down some of our country’s best known and most corrupt Mafia crime bosses to becoming one of the most highly respected Directors of the FBI. Additionally, the book is revealing, honest, factual, respectful and provides sound reasoning for what goes into making and being a good leader. It’s a very good read – compelling, inspiring and hopeful.
