The Bookshop of Yesterdays by Amy Meyerson
[book cover]

A woman inherits a beloved bookstore and sets forth on a journey of self discovery...

Miranda Brooks grew up in the stacks of her eccentric uncle Billy's bookstore, solving the inventive scavenger hunts he created just for her. Then, on Miranda's 12th birthday, Billy has a mysterious falling-out with her mother and suddenly disappears from Miranda's life. She doesn't hear about him again until sixteen years later, when she receives unexpected news: Billy has died and left her Prospero Books (which is teetering on the edge of bankruptcy) and one final scavenger hunt.

When Miranda returns home to Los Angeles and to Prospero Books, she finds clues that Billy has hidden for her inside novels on the store's shelves, in locked drawers of his apartment upstairs, and even in the name of the store itself. Determined to save Prospero Books and to solve billy's last scavenger hunt, Miranda soon finds herself drawn into a journey where she meets people from Billy's past, whose stories reveal a history that Miranda's mother has kept hidden, and the terrible secret that tore her family apart.

Eggs on Ice by Laura Childs
[book cover]

Some say that casting crusty attorney Allen Sharpe as Scrooge in the Kindred Players production of A Christmas Carol is just playing to type. He's not the most beloved man in town. In fact, you'd have a dickens of a time finding someone who liked him. Still it's a shock when the Ghost of Christmas Past stabs him during the first rehearsal.

Suzanne, co-owner of the Cackleberry Club café, Kindred's favorite combination diner, craft store and bookshop, chases the murderer out of the building but loses him in the alley. As the days pass, the list of suspects grows longer. Is it the disgruntled partner? The former secretary Sharpe sexually harrassed? Or is it fellow owner of the Cackleberry Club, Toni's almost ex-husband, Junior? The women of the Cackleberry Club are determined to find the killer before he can add another victim to his Christmas list.

Unsheltered by Barbara Kingsolver
[book cover]

Unsheltered is the compulsively readable story of two families, in two centuries, who live at the corner of Sixth and Plum in Vineland, New Jersey, navigating what seems to be the end of the world as they know it.

With history as their tantalizing canvas, these characters paint a startlingly relevant portrait of life in precarious times when the foundations of the past have failed to prepare us for the future.
