We have some more Adult Fiction and Nonfiction picks for you:

The Boston Girl The Boston Girl
by Anita Diamant


This book is narrated by Addie Baum, an 85 year old woman who is telling her life story to her granddaughter after being asked “How did you get to be the woman you are today?” It starts in 1915 and ends in 1985 and is a simple story of courage, hardship, love….life. I wish I had asked my grandmothers that question.

Mistletoe Promise Mistletoe Promise
by Richard Paul Evans


Elise Dutton dreads the arrival of another holiday season. Three years earlier, her husband cheated on her with her best friend, resulting in a bitter divorce that left her alone, broken, and distrustful. Then, one November day, a stranger approaches Elise in the mall food court. Though she recognizes the man from her building, Elise has never formally met him. Tired of spending the holidays alone, the man offers her a proposition. For the next eight weeks—until the evening of December 24—he suggests that they pretend to be a couple.

by Anna Quindlen


Rebecca, 60 and divorced, was once a successful photographer whose work provided a very comfortable lifestyle. Expenses rise and income dwindles. In order to save money, she moves from her luxury NYC apartment into a “cottage” in the country. Read this in one sitting and really enjoyed all the characters. Descriptions of the cottage and the country surrounding it made me feel like I could actually see it.

Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go.

Fans of Todd’s Ian Rutledge character won’t want to miss this pre-World War I story of his last case before joining the fight in France. A series of murders throughout England are suspiciously similar, and the inspector is caught up in an effort to rule them as suicide. As Britain readies for war, Ian struggles to see that justice is done while keeping his sister and fiancé safe from the murderer.
