Tigers In Red Weather - Liza Klaussman
Liza Klaussman's murder mystery set in 1950s New England takes place at Tiger House, where beautiful and damned housewives come to play in the heat. Tigers in Red Weather is sultry summer read.
The Gustav Sonata - Rose Tremain
I haven't read a great deal of Rose Tremain, but I was completely captivated by her latest novel, The Gustav Sonata - about a friendship between two boys in Switzerland just after WWII.
Mothering Sunday - Graham Swift
An upstairs-downstairs relationship ends in tragedy (and mystery) as a housemaid-turned-author looks back on that fateful day in 1924. Mothering Sunday is great read.
Hillbilly Elegy - J. D. Vance
Very timely in light of the present day political earthquake, Hillbilly Elegy is a story of love and survival from an American that's rarely heard.
Mademoiselle Chanel - C.W. Gortner
Mademoiselle Chanel is a fictional reimagining of the extraordinary life (and many loves) of the legendary designer, where fame and fortune can't save her from heartbreak.
