This home cooking, home entertaining cookbook, with personal favorites from his own kitchen and from his travels, translated into an effective battle plan will help you terrify your guests with your breathtaking efficiency.

The Whistler

by John Grisham

From America’s number one best-selling author comes the most electrifying novel of the year, a high-stakes thrill ride through the darkest corners of the Sunshine State. What happens when a judge bends the law or takes a bribe? Grisham’s characters race against nefarious organizations in pursuit of justice and the law.

Today Will Be Different

by Maria Semple

A brilliant novel from the author of Where’d You Go, Bernadette about a day in the life of Eleanor Flood, forced to abandon her small ambitions and awake to a strange, new future. Today Will Be Different is a hilarious,
heart-filled story about reinvention, sisterhood, and how sometimes it takes facing up
to our former selves to truly begin living.
