March Pick - The Dry by Jane Harper

 "Ms. Harper is not one to drop a fact...without using it later.  She has jampacked her swift debut thriller with sneaky moves that the  reader has to track with care... It's hard to believe this is her first  novel... The Dry is a breathless page-turner, driven by the many revelations Ms. Harper dreams up...."
--The New York Times, Janet Maslin 

April Pick - The Whole Town's Talking by Fannie Flagg

 Elmwood Springs, Missouri,  is a small town like any other, but something strange is happening at  the cemetery. Still Meadows, as it's called, is anything but still.  Original, profound,  The Whole Town's Talking, a novel in the tradition of Thornton Wilder's  Our Town and Flagg's own  Can't Wait to Get to Heaven, tells the story of Lordor Nordstrom,  his Swedish mail-order bride, Katrina, and their neighbors and  descendants as they live, love, die, and carry on in mysterious and  surprising ways.  

Lordor Nordstrom created, in his wisdom, not only a lively town  and a prosperous legacy for himself but also a beautiful final resting  place for his family, friends, and neighbors yet to come. "Resting  place" turns out to be a bit of a misnomer, however. Odd things begin to  happen, and it starts the whole town talking.  

With her wild imagination, great storytelling, and deep  understanding of folly and the human heart, the beloved Fannie Flagg  tells an unforgettable story of life, afterlife, and the remarkable  goings-on of ordinary people. In  The Whole Town's Talking, she reminds us that community is vital, life is a gift, and love never dies.

February's Pick - The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Annie Barrows

 In 1946, writer Juliet Ashton  receives a letter from a stranger, a founding member of the Guernsey  Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. And so begins a remarkable tale of  the island of Guernsey during the German occupation, and of a society  as extraordinary as its name.
