The Divorce Papers
The Divorce Papers by Susan Rieger (Other Fiction)
One of the Blind date books. All the nitty gritty of the mechanics of divorce told thru the written word of offers-counter offers and the behind the scenes haggling between husband and wife and their respective attorneys. Unique presentation which held my interest although, fortunately, I have no personal knowledge of the proceedings! -- Added by lhannon on 02/22/2017

Prayers for the Stolen
Prayers for the Stolen by Jennifer Clement (Other Fiction)
This is the Critical Mass book club selection for March,2017. It's the story of a young girl growing up in a remote mountain area of Mexico where the mothers cut their daughters' hair and make them dress like boys to make them less attractive (and therefore less likely to be kidnapped) to pillaging drug gangs. It's also a well-written social commentary on drug smuggling, illegal Mexican immigration to the U.S., and trafficking of young girls. The prose is spare yet original, and mirrors the gritty themes of the book. I really enjoyed this one, despite its noir novel feel. -- Added by Jhusain on 02/22/2017

The Little Paris Bookshop
The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George (Other Fiction)
This presented as a bit depressing look at a twenty years obsession over a mistress. The main character is a bit unbelievable in his chosen career of bookselling and using it as a prescriptive device. He his self prescription comes when he finds out the real reason his love left him. The book takes you through a picturesque tour of the French countryside. The ending pulls together the story nicely. I enjoyed the book and would recommend it. -- Added by 1234mom on 02/22/2017

Cat & Mouse
Cat & Mouse by James Patterson (Other Fiction)
I did and didn't want to read this book when I realized that the hero, Alex Cross, is going up against his nemesis again! The title is an apt description of the plot and book. I couldn't put it sown and yet I didn't want to keep reading it. Patterson definitely kept you on the edge of your seat and threw in so many twists to the plot, it was just crazy. I can't wait to see where the next book takes us. -- Added by k2disos on 02/21/2017
