A Redemption Story from Debut Author Gets a Lot of Buzz

Black River by SM Hulse
Black River by debut author S.M. Hulse tells the story of a man marked by a prison riot as he returns to the town, and the convict, who shaped him.

When Wes Carver returns to Black River, he carries two things in the cab of his truck: his wife’s ashes and a letter from the prison parole board. The convict Bobby Williams,who held him hostage during a riot, twenty years ago, is being considered for release.

Wes has been away from Black River ever since the riot. He grew up in this small Montana town, and, like his father before him and most of the men there, he made his living as a Corrections Officer. A talented, natural fiddler, he found solace and joy in his music. But during that riot Williams changed everything for Wes — undermining his faith and taking away his ability to play.

How can a man who once embodied evil ever come to good? How can he pay for such crimes with anything but his life? As Wes considers his own choices and grieves for all he’s lost, he must decide what he believes and whether he can let Williams walk away.

"Heads up—Hulse is a smart writer, able to reveal her character's gut-level emotions and trickiest self manipulations. Comparing the author to Annie Proulx, Wallace Stegner, or Kent Haruf is no exaggeration. Her debut is bound to turn readers' hearts inside out and leave them yearning for some sweet, mournful fiddle music." (Library Journal Reviews)

New Series Starter for Catherine Anderson

Silver Thaw by Catherine Anderson
After years of living in fear of her husband, Amanda Banning has left him and moved to Mystic Creek, Oregon, for a fresh start in Catherine Anderson's newest novel Silver Thaw, the first in her new Mystic Creek series.

Amanda is having a tough time providing for herself and her six-year-old daughter. Writing her secret yearnings on slips of paper and sending them into the wind helps her cling to the hope that things will get better and that she can find happiness again.

When Jeb Sterling comes to her rescue after a cold snap leaves her and her daughter temporary homeless, Amanda has no idea just how much this kind and compassionate man will change her life.

Silver Thaw received a *Starred Review* from Booklist Reviews: "Master storyteller Anderson (Walking on Air, 2014) has skillfully penned the heart-wrenching story of domestic abuse and its aftermath, taking readers on an emotional roller-coaster ride and making the terror, dread, distrust, and, eventually, tenuous hope of a battered woman palpable. This compelling first book in the Mystic Creek series will make an excellent book-discussion group selection."

You'll Want to Change Your Locks After Reading This

A Pleasure and a Calling by Phil Hogan
A Pleasure and a Calling by Phil Hogan is a deliciously unsettling, darkly funny novel about a man who quietly spies on the private lives of his neighbors.

You won't remember Mr. Heming. He was the agent who showed you around your home, negotiated a price with the owner, and called you with the good news. The less good news is that, all these years later, he still has the key. That's absurd, you laugh. Of all the many hundreds of houses he has sold, why would he still have the key to mine? The answer is; he has the keys to them all.

Mr. Heming considers himself a connoisseur of the private lives of others. As details emerge about his troubled childhood, his hobby begins to form a clear pattern, and the reasons behind it come into focus. When the quiet routine of the village is disrupted by strange occurrences, including a dead body found in the backyard of a client's home, Mr. Heming realizes it may only be a matter of time before his secrets are found out.

"Hogan skillfully builds a character that combines Mr. Goodbar, Hannibal Lector and Moriarty..." (Kirkus Reviews)

"William Heming joins the ranks of unforgettable, unreliable narrators in this gloriously creepy novel of psychological suspense." (Booklist Reviews)

Iconic Musicians on our New Biographies Shelves

Herbie Hancock: Possibilities by Herbie Hancock with Lisa Dickey
Blues All Day Long: the Jimmy Rogers Story by Wayne Everett Goins
Bowie the Biography by Wendy Leigh
Brian Jones: The Making of the Rolling Stones by Paul Trynka

Herbie Hancock: Possibilities by Herbie Hancock with Lisa Dickey:
The legendary jazz musician and composer reflects on his seven decades in music, tracing his early years as a musical prodigy and work in Miles Davis' second quintet to his multi-genre explorations and collaborations with fellow artists.

A member of Muddy Waters' legendary late 1940s-1950s band, Jimmy Rogers pioneered a blues guitar style that made him one of the most revered sidemen of all time. Rogers also had a significant if star-crossed career as a singer and solo artist for Chess Records, releasing the classic singles "That's All Right" and "Walking By Myself" as well as high profile tours with Eric Clapton and the Rolling Stones. In Blues All Day Long, Goins mines seventy-five hours of interviews with Rogers' family, collaborators, and peers to follow a life spent in the blues.

Bowie the Biography by Wendy Leigh:
David Bowie, the iconic superstar of rock, fashion, art, design, and the quintessential sexual liberator, is a living legend. However, for the past five decades, he has managed to retain his Hollywood star mystique. Now author Wendy Leigh reveals the real man behind the mythology. Through scores of interviews with Bowie’s lovers (both male and female), his girlfriends, business associates, groupies, and band members, Leigh, who grew up just a mile from where Bowie was born and went to school, has written an intimate biography of rock’s greatest enigma.

Brian Jones was the golden boy of the Rolling Stones, the visionary who gave the band its name and its sound. Yet he was a haunted man, and much of his brief time with the band, before his death in 1969 at the infamous age of twenty-seven, was volatile and tragic. Some of the details of how Jones was dethroned are well known, but the full story of his downfall is still largely untold. With more than 120 new interviews, Trynka offers countless new revelations and sets straight the tall tales that have long marred Jones’s legacy. 

Sequel Alert - The Rosie Effect

The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion
In The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion, Don and Rosie are happily married and living in New York. But they’re about to face a new challenge because - surprise! - Rosie is pregnant. 

Don sets about learning the protocols of becoming a father, but his unusual research style gets him into trouble with the law. Fortunately his best friend Gene is on hand to offer advice. As Don tries to schedule time for pregnancy research, getting Gene and Claudia to reconcile, servicing the industrial refrigeration unit that occupies half his apartment, helping Dave the Baseball Fan save his business, and staying on the right side of Lydia the social worker, he almost misses the biggest problem of all: he might lose Rosie when she needs him the most. 

"Many sequels falter, but this one is pitch-perfect. It’s cute, but it isn’t cheesy. It’s extremely funny and clever, but not at the expense of the characters or as an insult to the reader. The unexpected twist in The Rosie Effect is the way Simsion manages to make marriage romantic. This book isn’t really about pregnancy or living with autism or moving to a new city. It’s about having your world rocked when you really, truly have to compromise with another person. It’s about how tricky that is, how hilarious that can be, and how beautiful it is when you pull it off."  - BookPage Review

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
Waiting for your chance to read this charming sequel? Why not re-read (or read for the first time) The Rosie Project and get to know how Don, a socially awkward genetics professor who had never been on a second date, set out to find the perfect wife, but instead found Rosie Jarman, a fiercely independent barmaid who was on a quest to find her biological father.
