New Fiction 

A shocking discovery on a honeymoon in paradise changes the lives of a picture-perfect couple in this taut psychological thriller debut from Catherine Steadman called Something In The Water.  If you could make one simple choice that would change your life forever, would you? Erin is a documentary filmmaker on the brink of a professional breakthrough, Mark a handsome investment banker with big plans. Passionately in love, they embark on a dream honeymoon to the tropical island of Bora Bora, where they enjoy the sun, the sand, and each other. Then, while scuba diving in the crystal blue sea, they find something in the water. . . .Could the life of your dreams be the stuff of nightmares? Suddenly the newlyweds must make a dangerous choice: to speak out or to protect their secret. After all, if no one else knows, who would be hurt? Their decision will trigger a devastating chain of events. . . .Have you ever wondered how long it takes to dig a grave?

A wild party. A teenage girl. A compromising photograph. As the image spreads and then goes viral, gossip and scandal shake an upscale community in Nashville, Tennessee to its foundations. Who's to blame? The girl in the photo, drunk and unconscious on someone's bed? The photographer, a boy tipped for Princeton who may not understand the gravity of what he's done? Or their parents, forced to question the values they've never doubted - and to ask themselves who they really are? Riveting and poignant, Emily Giffin’s latest novel called all we Ever Wanted paints an impossible dilemma that will make readers ponder hard questions about loyalty and love.

Mackenzie Cooper took her eyes off the road for just a moment, but the resulting collision was enough to rob her of her life as she knew it. Forced to start again, she moved to a small town under a new name - Maggie Reid - and her only goal is to stay under the radar. She's thankful for the few friends she's made, although she can't risk telling them too much about her previous life. But Maggie isn't the only one in this peaceful town with secrets. When a friend's teenage son is thrust into the national spotlight, Maggie is torn between protecting herself or stepping into the glare to be at their side. Will she find the courage to face the world again? Before And Again, by Barbara Delinsky, is a story of the relationships we find ourselves in-mothers and daughters, spouses and siblings, true companions and fair-weather friends-and what kind of sacrifices we are or aren’t willing to make to sustain the through good times and bad.

She went missing. He moved on. A whole world of secrets remained - until now. Finn and Layla are young, in love, and on vacation. They're driving along the highway when Finn decides to stop at a service station to use the restroom. He hops out of the car, locks the doors behind him, and goes inside. When he returns Layla is gone - never to be seen again. That is the story Finn told to the police. But it is not the whole story. Ten years later Finn is engaged to Layla's sister, Ellen. Their shared grief over what happened to Layla drew them close and now they intend to remain together. Still, there's something about Ellen that Finn has never fully understood. His heart wants to believe that she is the one for him...even though a sixth sense tells him not to trust her. Then, not long before he and Ellen are to be married, Finn gets a phone call. Someone from his past has seen Layla - hiding in plain sight. There are other odd occurrences: Long-lost items from Layla's past that keep turning up around Finn and Ellen's house. Emails from strangers who seem to know too much. Secret messages, clues, warnings. If Layla is alive - and on Finn's trail - what does she want? And how much does she know? A tour de force of psychological suspense, Bring Me Back, by B.A. Paris, will have you questioning everything and everyone until its stunning climax.
