We were asked to talk about bestsellers for the Lincolnville Women’s club, so we chose some varied fiction to share with them–each book went over pretty well!
A Fatal Grace by Louise Penny
These mysteries (the Three Pines series) are very cozy with great character development, as well as connections to paintings.
Juliet by Anne Fortier
A modern re-telling of Romeo and Juliet, with lots of romance, history, secrets, and Italian atmosphere.
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
A very sweet novel set in the days following World War II, about an editor in London and a remote community in the Guernsey Islands forging a friendship through correspondence.
Amy and Isabelle by Elizabeth Strout
A fierce and not always easy read about a troubled relationship between a mother and daughter, told in sparing yet eloquent prose.
Maine by J. Courtney Sullivan
A beach read about family dynamics and relationships.
I Still Dream About You by Fannie Flagg
Anyone who enjoys reading about small-towns and characters that you can connect with should try this book.
The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova
An intricate and lush story of art, obsession, passion, and madness.
