In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware

Featured beverage based on a suggestion from Ruth Ware: "Chilled Prosseco"

What should be a cozy and fun-filled weekend deep in the English countryside takes a sinister turn in this suspenseful, compulsive, and darkly twisted psychological thriller. When reclusive writer Leonora is invited to the English countryside for a weekend away, she reluctantly agrees to make the trip. But as the first night falls, revelations unfold among friends old and new, an unnerving memory shatters Leonora's reserve, and a haunting realization creeps in: the party is not alone in the woods.

B is for Beer by Tom Robbins

A children's book about beer? Yes, believe it or not -- but B is for Beer is also a book for adults, and bear in mind that it's the work of maverick bestselling novelist Tom Robbins, internationally known for his ability to both seriously illuminate and comically entertain. As charming as it may be subversive, B is for Beer involves readers, young and old, in a surprising, far-reaching investigation into the limits of reality, the transformative powers of children, and, of course, the ultimate meaning of a tall, cold brewski.

Still Life by Louise Penny

Chief Inspector Armand Garnache and his team of investigators are called to the scene of a suspicious death in a rural village south of Montreal. Jane Neal, a local fixture in the tiny hamlet of Three Pines, just north of the U.S. border, has been found dead in the woods. The locals are certain it's a tragic hunting accident and nothing more, but Gamache smells something foul in these remote woods. Still Life introduces not only an engaging series hero in Inspector Gamache, who commands his forces -- and this series -- with integrity and quiet courage, but also a winning and talented writer of traditional mysteries in the person of Louise Penny.
