New Fiction: Monday, July 19

The Macedon Public Library is fully open for in-person visits. Computers are available and the Discovery Room is also open. We ask patrons who are not yet vaccinated to please wear masks, but we will not be monitoring this. We will continue to offer “Grab and Go” services for those who prefer to place their books on hold online and then pick them up in the cabinet outside the library.

Here are a few of the new books that have come in to the library recently. We invite you to check them out!

The Stranger Behind You

Journalist Joan Lurie has written a seething exposé about a notorious newspaper tycoon. Traumatized after being brutally attacked, she moves into a highly secure apartment called the Refuge. Lillian Day is Joan’s new 96-year-old neighbor, who, in 1941, witnessed a mysterious murder that sent her into hiding. Another resident, Melissa Osgood, discovers a suspicious paper trail that leaves her wondering about her marriage. As these three women’s lives intersect, they each must stay one step ahead of those who are desperate to make sure the truth is never uncovered.

The Third Grave

The old Beaumont mansion is a rotting shell of its once-grand self, especially after a disastrous hurricane sweeps through Georgia. The storm leads to a grisly find in the cellar. Three graves. But only two skeletons… For Nikki Gillette, the discovery is the perfect subject for her next crime book — though her husband, detective Reed Pierce, has made her promise not to keep involving herself in dangerous police business. But despite the increasing tension between them, Nikki can’t stay away from this story. Rumors are widespread that the burial site is the resting place of the Duval sisters—three young girls who went to the movies with their older brother, Owen, twenty years ago, and never returned. Forensics confirms that the remains belong to Holly and Poppy Duval. But where is the youngest sister, Rose?

The Paper Palace

It is a perfect July morning, and Elle, a fifty-year-old happily married mother of three, awakens at “The Paper Palace” — the family summer place which she has visited every summer of her life. But this morning is different, because last night Elle and her oldest friend Jonas crept out the back door into the darkness and had sex with each other for the first time, all while their spouses chatted away inside. Now, over the next 24 hours, Elle will have to decide between the life she has made with her genuinely beloved husband, Peter, and the life she always imagined she would have had with her childhood love, Jonas, if a tragic event hadn’t forever changed the course of their lives.
