        Girls Like Us

        Girls Like Us

        by Cristina Alger

        From the New York Times bestselling author of The Banker's Wife, worlds collide when an FBI agent investigates a string of grisly murders on Long Island that raises the impossible question: What happens when the primary suspect is your father?
        FBI Agent Nell Flynn hasn't been home in ten years. Nell and her father, Homicide Detective Martin Flynn, have never had much of a relationship. And Suffolk County will always be awash in memories of her mother, Marisol, who was murdered when Nell was just seven.
        When Martin Flynn dies in a motorcycle accident, Nell returns to the house she grew up in so that she can spread her father's ashes and close his estate. At the behest of her father's partner, Detective Lee Davis, Nell becomes involved in an investigation into the murders of two young women in Suffolk County. The further Nell digs, the more likely it seems to her that her father should be the prime suspect--and that his friends on the police force are covering his tracks. Plagued by doubts about her mother's murder--and her own role in exonerating her father in that case--Nell can't help but ask questions about who killed Ria Ruiz and Adriana Marques and why. But she may not like the answers she finds--not just about those she loves, but about herself.

        City of Girls

        City of Girls

        by Elizabeth Gilbert

        Beloved author Elizabeth Gilbert returns to fiction with a unique love story set in the New York City theater world during the 1940s. Told from the perspective of an older woman as she looks back on her youth with both pleasure and regret (but mostly pleasure), City of Girls explores themes of female sexuality and promiscuity, as well as the idiosyncrasies of true love.
        In 1940, nineteen-year-old Vivian Morris has just been kicked out of Vassar College, owing to her lackluster freshman-year performance. Her affluent parents send her to Manhattan to live with her Aunt Peg, who owns a flamboyant, crumbling midtown theater called the Lily Playhouse. There Vivian is introduced to an entire cosmos of unconventional and charismatic characters, from the fun-chasing showgirls to a sexy male actor, a grand-dame actress, a lady-killer writer, and no-nonsense stage manager. But when Vivian makes a personal mistake that results in professional scandal, it turns her new world upside down in ways that it will take her years to fully understand. Ultimately, though, it leads her to a new understanding of the kind of life she craves - and the kind of freedom it takes to pursue it. It will also lead to the love of her life, a love that stands out from all the rest.
        Now eighty-nine years old and telling her story at last, Vivian recalls how the events of those years altered the course of her life - and the gusto and autonomy with which she approached it. "At some point in a woman's life, she just gets tired of being ashamed all the time," she muses. "After that, she is free to become whoever she truly is." Written with a powerful wisdom about human desire and connection, City of Girls is a love story like no other.

        Little Fires Everywhere (Movie Tie-In)

        by Celeste Ng

        From the bestselling author of Everything I Never Told You, a riveting novel that traces the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and the enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives.
        In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is planned—from the layout of the winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules. Enter Mia Warren—an enigmatic artist and single mother—who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenaged daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than tenants: all four Richardson children are drawn to the mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past and a disregard for the status quo that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community.
        When old family friends of the Richardsons attempt to adopt a Chinese-American baby, a custody battle erupts that dramatically divides the town—and puts Mia and Elena on opposing sides. Suspicious of Mia and her motives, Elena is determined to uncover the secrets in Mia’s past. But her obsession will come at unexpected and devastating costs.
        Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, and the ferocious pull of motherhood—and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster.

        The Authenticity Project

        The story of a solitary green notebook that brings together six strangers and leads to unexpected friendship, and even love
        Julian Jessop, an eccentric, lonely artist and septuagenarian believes that most people aren't really honest with each other. But what if they were? And so he writes--in a plain, green journal--the truth about his own life and leaves it in his local café. It's run by the incredibly tidy and efficient Monica, who furtively adds her own entry and leaves the book in the wine bar across the street. Before long, the others who find the green notebook add the truths about their own deepest selves--and soon find each other In Real Life at Monica's Café.
        The Authenticity Project's cast of characters--including Hazard, the charming addict who makes a vow to get sober; Alice, the fabulous mommy Instagrammer whose real life is a lot less perfect than it looks online; and their other new friends--is by turns quirky and funny, heartbreakingly sad and painfully true-to-life. It's a story about being brave and putting your real self forward--and finding out that it's not as scary as it seems. In fact, it looks a lot like happiness.
        The Authenticity Project is just the tonic for our times that readers are clamoring for--and one they will take to their hearts and read with unabashed pleasure.

        Robert Ludlum’s The Treadstone Resurrection

        by HOOD, JOSHUA

        The first novel in an explosive new series inspired by Robert Ludlum's Bourne universe, The Treadstone Resurrection introduces an unforgettable hero and the shadowy world that forged him...
        Treadstone made Jason Bourne an unstoppable force, but he's not the only one.
        Operation Treadstone has nearly ruined Adam Hayes. The top-secret CIA Black Ops program trained him to be an all but invincible assassin, but it also cost him his family and any chance at a normal life. Which is why he was determined to get out. Working as a carpenter in rural Washington state, Adam thinks he has left Treadstone in the past, until he receives a mysterious email from a former colleague, and soon after is attacked by an unknown hit team at his job site.
        Adam must regain the skills that Treadstone taught him--lightning reflexes and a cold conscience--in order to discover who the would-be killers are and why they have come after him now. Are his pursuers enemies from a long-ago mission? Rival intelligence agents? Or, perhaps, forces inside Treadstone? His search will unearth secrets in the highest levels of government and pull him back into the shadowy world he worked so hard to forget.

        The Big Kahuna

        The Big Kahuna

        by Evanovich, Janet - Evanovich, Peter

        A stoner, an Instagram model, a Czech oligarch, and a missing unicorn. Nick Fox and Kate O'Hare have their work cut out for them in their weirdest, wildest adventure yet in this New York Times bestseller by Janet and Peter Evanovich. Straight arrow FBI Agent Kate O'Hare always plays by the rules. Charming Con Man Nicholas Fox makes them up as he goes along. She thinks he's nothing but a scoundrel. He thinks she just needs to lighten up. They're working together to tackle the out-of-bounds cases ordinary FBI agents can't touch. And, their relationship? Well, there hasn't been so much explosive chemistry since Nitro was introduced to Glycerin. Next on the docket: The mysterious disappearance of the Silicon Valley billionaire, known as the Big Kahuna. Kate's been assigned to find him but no one seems particularly keen on helping. His twenty-six year old adult actress wife-turned Instagram model wife and his shady Czech business partner are more interested in gaining control of his company. For that they need a dead body not a living Kahuna. The only lead they have is the Kahuna's drop-out son, who's living the dream in Hawaii - if your dream is starting your day with the perfect wave and ending it with a big bowl of weed. To get close to the Kahuna's son, Kate and Nick go undercover as a married couple in the big wave, bohemian, surfer community of Paia, Maui. Living a laid back, hippy-dippy lifestyle isn't exactly in Kate's wheelhouse, but the only thing more horrifying is setting up house with Nick Fox, even if he does look pretty gnarly on a longboard. If they don't catch a break soon, waves aren't the only thing she's going to be shredding (or bedding).

        Le pays des autres - Première partie, La guerre, la guerre, la guerre

        Le pays des autres - Première partie, La guerre, la guerre, la guerre

        by Leïla Slimani

        En 1944, Mathilde, une jeune Alsacienne, s'éprend d'Amine Belhaj, un Marocain combattant dans l'armée française. Après la Libération, elle quitte son pays pour suivre au Maroc celui qui va devenir son mari. Le couple s'installe à Meknès, ville de garnison et de colons, où le système de ségrégation coloniale s'applique avec rigueur. Amine récupère ses terres, rocailleuses ingrates et commence alors une période très dure pour la famille. Mathilde accouche de deux enfants : Aïcha et Sélim. Au prix de nombreux sacrifices et vexations, Amine parvient à organiser son domaine, en s'alliant avec un médecin hongrois, Dragan Palosi, qui va devenir un ami très proche. Mathilde se sent étouffée par le climat rigoriste du Maroc, par sa solitude à la ferme, par la méfiance qu'elle inspire en tant qu'étrangère et par le manque d'argent. Les relations entre les colons et les indigènes sont très tendues, et Amine se trouve pris entre deux feux : marié à une Française, propriétaire terrien employant des ouvriers marocains, il est assimilé aux colons par les autochtones, et méprisé et humilié par les Français parce qu'il est marocain. Il est fier de sa femme, de son courage, de sa beauté particulière, de son fort tempérament, mais il en a honte aussi car elle ne fait pas preuve de la modestie ni de la soumission convenables. Aïcha grandit dans ce climat de violence, suivant l'éducation que lui prodiguent les Soeurs à Meknès, où elle fréquente des fillettes françaises issues de familles riches qui l'humilient. Selma, la soeur d'Amine, nourrit des rêves de liberté sans cesse brimés par les hommes qui l'entourent. Alors qu'Amine commence à récolter les fruits de son travail harassant, des émeutes éclatent, les plantations sont incendiées : le roman se clôt sur des scènes de violence inaugurant l'accès du pays à l'indépendance en 1956.

        Elu à moins de 30 ans, Charles figure parmi les plus jeunes députés de l'histoire de France à rejoindre les bancs de l'Assemblée nationale, une prouesse qui a fait de lui la coqueluche des médias, toujours avides de fraîcheur dans un monde politique grisonnant et dominé par les vieux appareils. Charles tranche, sa vitalité réveille et son audace détonne : tous les projecteurs sont braqués sur ce jeune loup qui rêve aux ors de l'Elysée. Pour l'aider dans son ascension vers le pouvoir suprême, Charles peut compter sur deux génies protecteurs qui oeuvrent en coulisse : la vivace Florence, sa maîtresse, une journaliste rusée, jamais à court de stratagèmes, qui règne sur la première chaîne télé de France ; et sur son père, Jean-Baptiste d'Orgel, un acteur célèbre aimé du public, qui connaît mieux que personne le Paris des arts et des médias. Mais plusieurs menaces planent sur les ambitions de Charles : l'ombre de son histoire familiale qui se dessine sur fond de drame, de fureur et d'assassinats ; le spectre d'un beau-père, plein d'amertume et d'aigreur. Il y a aussi les chausses trappes de ses rivaux, la découverte d'un enregistrement pirate qui compromet gravement le président en exercice sous les traits duquel on reconnaitra aisément un ancien président de la République, les infortunes du quotidien ; mais plus dangereux encore est l'arrivée de Blanche dans sa vie, une sulfureuse écrivain à succès, qui risque de briser l'alliance tacite qu'il a conclue avec Florence... Entre les eaux froides du calcul politique et les flammes imprévisibles de la passion, entre le rêve de gloire à portée de main et l'amour vrai à portée de coeur, Charles saura-t-il trouver le juste-milieu ?
