    Thanksgiving has a way of thawing the frostiest hearts in Lake Eden. But that won’t be happening for newlywed Hannah Swensen Barton–not after her husband suddenly disappears. Hannah has felt as bitter as November in Minnesota since Ross vanished without a trace and left their marriage in limbo. Still, she throws herself into a baking frenzy for the sake of pumpkin pie and Thanksgiving-themed treats while endless holiday orders pour into The Cookie Jar. Hannah even introduces a raspberry Danish pastry to the menu, and P.K., her husband’s assistant at KCOW-TV, will be one of the first to sample it. But instead of taking a bite, P.K., who is driving Ross’s car and using his desk at work, is murdered. Was someone plotting against P.K. all along or did Ross dodge a deadly dose of sweet revenge? Hannah will have to quickly sift through a cornucopia of clues and suspects to stop a killer from bringing another murder to the table.

  • Little Fires Everywhere Celeste Ng

    From the bestselling author of Everything I Never Told You, the intertwined stories of the picture-perfect Richardson family and the mother and daughter who upend their lives “I read Little Fires Everywhere in a single, breathless sitting. With brilliance and beauty, Celeste Ng dissects a microcosm of American society just when we need to see it beneath the microscope …”–Jodi Picoult, New York Times -bestselling author of Small Great Things and Leaving Time In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is planned – from the layout of the winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules. Enter Mia Warren – an enigmatic artist and single mother – who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenaged daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than tenants: all four Richardson children are drawn to the mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past and a disregard for the status quo that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community. When old family friends of the Richardsons attempt to adopt a Chinese-American baby, a custody battle erupts that dramatically divides the town–and puts Mia and Elena on opposing sides. Suspicious of Mia and her motives, Elena is determined to uncover the secrets in Mia’s past. But her obsession will come at unexpected and devastating costs. Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, and the ferocious pull of motherhood – and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster.

  • Nomad Land: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century Jessica Bruder

    From the beet fields of North Dakota to the National Forest campgrounds of California to Amazon’s CamperForce program in Texas, employers have discovered a new, low-cost labor pool, made up largely of transient older Americans. Finding that social security comes up short, often underwater on mortgages, these invisible casualties of the Great Recession have taken to the road by the tens of thousands in late-model RVs, travel trailers, and vans, forming a growing community of nomads: migrant laborers who call themselves ‘workampers.’ On frequently traveled routes between seasonal jobs, Jessica Bruder meets people from all walks of life: a former professor, a McDonald’s vice president, a minister, a college administrator, and a motorcycle cop, among many others; including her irrepressible protagonist, a onetime cocktail waitress, Home Depot clerk, and general contractor named Linda May.

  • Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House Michael Wolff

    ” Holter Graham] uses his deep, elastic voice to punctuate key ideas, and he speeds up and slows down to create tension…The result is a wonderful performance of a most important audiobook.” — AudioFile Magazine

    This program includes an author’s note read by Michael Wolff

    #1 New York Times Bestseller

    With extraordinary access to the West Wing, Michael Wolff reveals what happened behind-the-scenes in the first nine months of the most controversial presidency of our time in Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House .

    Since Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, the country–and the world–has witnessed a stormy, outrageous, and absolutely mesmerizing presidential term that reflects the volatility and fierceness of the man elected Commander-in-Chief.

    This riveting and explosive account of Trump’s administration provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office, including:
    — What President Trump’s staff really thinks of him
    — What inspired Trump to claim he was wire-tapped by President Obama
    — Why FBI director James Comey was really fired
    — Why chief strategist Steve Bannon and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner couldn’t be in the same room
    — Who is really directing the Trump administration’s strategy in the wake of Bannon’s firing
    — What the secret to communicating with Trump is
    — What the Trump administration has in common with the movie The Producers

    Never before in history has a presidency so divided the American people. Brilliantly reported and astoundingly fresh, Fire and Fury shows us how and why Donald Trump has become the king of discord and disunion.

    More Praise for Fire and Fury:

    “Holter Graham, a Baltimore native, actor and veteran audiobook narrator, delivers this] truly bizarre tale of dysfunction in a composed voice. Where a less confident narrator might have allowed a smirking note to emerge, Graham maintains his poise, subtly picking up the narrative’s mood in slight modulations of tone and unobtrusively freighted pauses.” — Washington Post

    “Essential reading.” –Michael D’Antonio, author of Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success , CNN.com

    “Not since Harry Potter has a new book caught fire in this way… Fire and Fury ] is indeed a significant achievement, which deserves much of the attention it has received.” — The Economist
