July Staff Recommendations

A Little Ray of Sunshine by Kristan Higgins

A heartfelt and touching story of a young woman who gets pregnant in college, makes the difficult decision to put her son up for adoption and keeps it a secret from her family. Nearly 18 years later, her son decides to find her without telling his adoptive parents during their summer vacation. It's a summer full of love and anguish for both families but showing no bounds to a mother's love. This title is available at the library and through the Libby app. ~ Erin

Autopsy of a Boring Wife by Marie-Renee Lavoie

A fast-paced, hilarious examination of middle-aged, Diane whose husband is divorcing her because she bores him. This book in translation is a gem. I loved it! Available through inter-library loan. ~Leslie M.

Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal by Mary Roach

Fueled by curiosity and a scientific nature Mary Roach travels down the digestive tract with her last meal and sniffs out what makes food good for us and our pets. A comical take on the inner-workings and not workings with a plethora of doctors and scientists to answer the unanswered (or the actual courage to ask) questions. This title is available through inter-library loan and the Libby app. ~Ashley

The Only One Left by Riley Sager

Home health nurse, Kit McDere is hired at Hope's End to care for Lenora Hope, who is confined to a wheel chair. A woman accused of murdering her father, mother, and sister decades earlier but never proven. Twists and turns as the truth is revealed. This title is available at the library. ~ Bonnie

An Evil Heart (Kate Burkholder #15) by Linda Castillo

A young Amish man named Aden Karn is killed one day on his way to work with a cross bow. According to everyone, he is a sweet gentleman. Yet all of Kate's experience is telling her he has done something bad to deserve dying in such a horrible way. Another winner by Castillo. This title is available at the library.
