The Kind Worth Killing, Peter Swamson
If you are looking for the next Gone Girl,  this is the psychological thriller you have been waiting for. Full of deliciously bad people, this book will keep you up late at night to find out what is going to happen next. While it may not restore your faith in humanity, you will be disappointed to reach the end. I loved it!     Tatum Fichthorn

A Small Indiscretion, Jan Ellison
Told from the perspective of Annie Black, in a letter to her son, spanning over 20 years of her life, this book will make you realize how decisions in your past will always have an impact on your life. Part thriller, part romance you'll want to stick around to see how this one ends.                      Tatum Fichthorn

Books to Brighten the Dark Days

   
 

A Man Called Ove, Fredrik Backman
59-year-old Ove is a grumpy misanthropic man who sees no point in living since his beloved wife died. But his neighbors seem to depend on him and, in spite of himself, he gradually learns the importance of friendship. A charming, poignant story and a staff favorite.

 Funny Girl, Nick Hornby
Set in the 1960's, Funny Girl follows Sophie Straw as she abandons her old life in Blackpool to become a comedic actress on BBC. This entertaining story reads like a rom-com with more depth. Highly entertaining and an absolutely perfect spring vacation read.  Tatum Fichthorn
