The Little Paris Bookshop / Nina George

From his floating bookstore along the Seine, the Literary Apothecary, Jean Perdu intuits the perfect book to heal whatever heartbreak afflicts his customer-patients. Yet it is his own that he cannot heal as he lives a Miss Havisham–like existence, blocking off rooms in his apartment and even avoiding thinking the name of a former love. However, an encounter with a new tenant forces him to read an unopened letter, and the devastating contents compel him to finally leave Paris and sail south so that he may finally move past his heartbreak. (CDBOOK GEORGE)

A Thousand Splendid Suns / Khaled Hosseini

A breathtaking story set against the volatile events of Afghanistan’s last thirty years-from the Soviet invasion to the reign of the Taliban to post-Taliban rebuilding that puts the violence, fear, hope and faith of this country in intimate, human terms.

The Woman in Cabin 10 / Ruth Ware

An intruder in the middle of the night leaves Lo Blacklock feeling vulnerable. Trying to shake off her fears, she hopes her big break of covering the maiden voyage of the luxury cruise ship, the Aurora, will help. The first night of the voyage changes everything. What did she really see in the water and who was the woman in the cabin next door? (CDBOOK WARE)
