Don Gillmor, Mount Pleasant
Money, real estate and status are the foundations of a good life –and no one ever thinks about foundations until they begin to crumble. In this darkly comic novel, middle-aged, old-monied, always-needing-more Harry Salter learns that when financial expectations and realities clash, it takes more than he ever dreamed to repair the damage.
Oakland Ross, The Empire of Yearning
A Hapsburg nobleman, a one-armed Mestizo and a beautiful opera diva walk into the Imperial Palace in Mexico City… No, it’s not the start of an old joke but the latest novel from an award-winning author and journalist. In this sweeping tale of 19th century Mexico, competing allegiances force one man into an irreversible choice, affecting both him and his country.
Wayne Johnston, The Son of a Certain Woman
The streets of St. John’s are alive with secrets, hormones, illicit love and, of course, the Catholic Church. In this sure-to-be-bestseller, celebrated author Wayne Johnston tells a witty and wise tale of coming of age that reminds us that we all yearn to be loved and while we can’t always have what we want, sometimes we are surprised to learn that we can.
Maureen Jennings, Beware This Boy
From the author who has inspired two TV series- Murdoch Mysteries and Bomb Girls- comes the latest Tom Tyler historical mystery. Impeccable research, vivid characters and snappy dialogue drop us in the midst of Birmingham during the Blitz as we join D. Tyler in solving the mystery of an explosion in the local munitions factory.
