Some of Our Favorite Listens

Garden of Lamentations
By Deborah Crombie

"Escape to London with husband and wife detectives Kincaid and James in Deborah Crombie's Garden of Lamentations. You'll be engaged in the twists and turns, murder, and corrupt police as the main characters must determine who to trust." -Pat


Rabbit Cake
By Annie Hartnett

"Imagine Maria Semple, Jeanette Walls and Alexandra Fuller all knocking heads to create an eccentric, quirky and utterly charming tale of a ten year old protangonist dealing with the loss of her mother.  And, her name is Elvis.  

Annie Hartnett conveys bittersweet/hilarious moments with a southern twang.

Love this book." -PAM

By Elizabeth Gilbert
