Book Summary:

When John Eastwick Jr.’s father dies, he finds out about one family secret that will change his life forever. But a murder the night of the memorial service raises the question—what else was his beloved father hiding? *** 21-year-old John Eastwick Jr. has lived a charmed and cozy life. The sole heir of the Eastwick family fortune, John is on the cusp of graduating from the renowned Montvale University out east before returning home to run his family business. But in late fall of his final year, John’s father dies of heart failure. Days later, his father is named as one of the disgraced moguls who bribed John’s way into his prestigious college. Kicked out of school, John returns home to his distraught mother at their lakeside mansion to bury his father. There, John’s world continues to crumble beneath his feet: the will that the family lawyer reads bears no resemblance to the last version that the late John Eastwick Sr. created. In fact, John Eastwick Sr. has divided his estate not only between his son and wife, but the family chef, their loyal lawyer, his young secretary, and his estranged brother. John wonders, is his father trying to atone for past mistakes--and what other secrets might he be keeping? But that night, after the reading of the will, one among the group is murdered. And John Eastwick Jr. must not only piece together who the threat is, but also face what else his beloved father might have been hiding.

Book Summary:

When Lia returns home to St. Clair to regroup after a failed stint in Hollywood, she just wants to avoid seeing anyone from her past. But when her ex-boyfriend’s mother, Paulette McKenzie, is blackmailed days after Lia’s arrival, Lia finds herself the immediate suspect—and drawn back into the web of lies and secrets of St. Clair. *** After leaving St. Clair at age eighteen to pursue her dreams in Hollywood, 29-year-old Lia Logan returns home with nothing but dozens of failed auditions under her belt. She’s determined to lay low: a brief house-sitting gig over the holiday break will give her enough money to move east and find a new job (and a new life). But to Lia’s horror, the owners of the house, the Eastwicks, have not canceled their annual holiday party—meaning Lia must now see everyone from her (now very successful) high school friends to the ex-boyfriend she dumped right before she left. The night turns into a disaster: Lia’s ex-boyfriend’s mother, Paulette McKenzie, is blackmailed at the party, and she immediately points the finger at Lia. The problem is, Lia does know a secret about Paulette. And there’s no convincing the woman—or any of the other partygoers—that she had nothing to do with it. As the blackmail escalates, Lia must dig through the guests at the party to determine what each of them is hiding and piece together what exactly happened that night, including talking to Paulette’s shifty older son, Lia’s ex’s extremely successful new girlfriend, and Lia’s group of high school friends, who have been acting strangely distant and closed off. It doesn’t take long for Lia to remember: St. Clair is a town full of secrets. And to clear her name, she’ll have to risk revealing one of her own.

Book Summary:

When a scheming socialite is murdered at his company launch party, ex-footballer Daniel Becker must find out the truth—even if it means implicating himself. *** After leaving his football career in disgrace, Daniel “Becks” Becker is finally ready to start a new chapter, opening a financial services firm with his high school friend. Never mind that his mind hasn’t been quite right over the past few months, ever since that infamous tackle (the one he swears he didn’t mean to make) that started all of the rumors about whether his head was right. Becks knows that one slip-up at the firm’s opening party could mean the flight of any investors the firm so desperately needs, and the end of all of Becks’ hopes to still provide a living for his wife and their future family. At the party, Becks does his best to make his way through. He speaks with old footballer friends who seem to have their own secrets. He listens to his friend and new partner give a speech about the future, only to be interrupted by a drunk socialite hinting at secrets of her own and spewing insults at his wife. When his head finally hurts too much, Becks walks off for a nap and wakes up to the presence of a sly journalist prodding him with questions. But while they’re talking, someone raises the alarm—the socialite has been murdered. Now, Becks must piece together what happened that night, and figure out who he can trust. Because at the party, everyone seems to be hiding something—and Becks starts to wonder what he has been hiding from himself.

Book Summary:

“John Updike is the great genial sorcerer of American letters [and] The Witches of Eastwick [is one of his] most ambitious works. . . . [A] comedy of the blackest sort.”—The New York Times Book Review Toward the end of the Vietnam era, in a snug little Rhode Island seacoast town, wonderful powers have descended upon Alexandra, Jane, and Sukie, bewitching divorcées with sudden access to all that is female, fecund, and mysterious. Alexandra, a sculptor, summons thunderstorms; Jane, a cellist, floats on the air; and Sukie, the local gossip columnist, turns milk into cream. Their happy little coven takes on new, malignant life when a dark and moneyed stranger, Darryl Van Horne, refurbishes the long-derelict Lenox mansion and invites them in to play. Thenceforth scandal flits through the darkening, crooked streets of Eastwick—and through the even darker fantasies of the town’s collective psyche. “A great deal of fun to read . . . fresh, constantly entertaining . . . John Updike [is] a wizard of language and observation.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer “Vintage Updike, which is to say among the best fiction we have.”—Newsday

Book Summary:

The gloomy Morlock estate is on the cusp of a sale—but the house inspection goes far from smoothly. As more and more visitors, planned and unplanned, arrive, it becomes increasingly clear: everyone is hiding something. And one of those secrets is deadly. *** Widower Daniel Bauer has a secret—one that he won’t need to keep much longer, if only he can get through the house inspection that day. Real estate agent Suzy Chung is desperate to manage her unruly client Daniel. He refuses to leave the house for the inspection, for reasons she can’t identify. Daniel is her first client—if the listing falls through, her fresh start in the well-to-do town of St. Clair will be compromised…and Suzy cannot afford to let that happen. Antonia and George Butters are an irascible middle-aged married couple set on buying Daniel’s house. But the arrival of a second family, the Haynes, claiming they set up a showing that day through Suzy, sets them on edge. It doesn’t help that the Butters’ real estate agent, Jack Randall, has been acting fishy ever since he arrived, or that the young house inspector named Teddy grows jumpier the more people show up. Not to mention the sudden arrival of two contractors, claiming they’re supposed to give Antonia Butters a quote, even though a quote seems like the last thing on their minds. A tornado warning sends the group fleeing to the basement. When the lights go off, tensions grow high and trees tumble down, trapping the group inside. And when the lights come on, someone among them has been murdered. A MURDER AT MORLOCK is a standalone St. Clair mystery novel.

Book Summary:

After a contentious debate, a secluded family holds an open house to finally sell their estate. But when one among them suddenly dies, the tragedy threatens to unravel the secrets that bind them together. *** Deborah, Patricia, and Elizabeth have lived together at the Vonville estate for decades. Of the three sisters, only Patricia has ever ventured out into the world in her adulthood: after a brief failed marriage, Patricia showed up on the doorstep of the Vonville home, light on belongings and lighter on details. But years later, the eldest sister Deborah agrees to Patricia’s demands to sell the family estate and divide the proceeds. Elizabeth, the youngest, is devastated, all the more so because her sisters seem to be holding something back from her. The open house fills quickly: the sisters’ real estate agent, Jack Randall, arrives, followed soon after by a young couple that falls desperately in love with the house, a thoughtful older real estate developer and his assistant—and then a ghost from the sisters’ past that leaves Deborah shaken. Within hours, one among them is dead. And unless those who remain can unravel the secrets of the Vonville family, someone among them may be next.

Book Summary:

Set in the near future of 2020, this disconcerting philosophical fantasy depicts an America devastated by a war with China that has left its populace decimated, its government a shambles, and its natural resources tainted. The hero is Ben Turnbull, a sixty-six-year-old retired investment counselor, who, like Thoreau, sticks close to home and traces the course of one Massachusetts year in his journal. Something of a science buff, he finds that his disrupted personal history has been warped by the disjunctions and vagaries of the “many-worlds” hypothesis derived from the indeterminacy of quantum theory. His identity branches into variants extending back through the past and forward into the evolution of the universe, as both it and his own mortal, nature-haunted existence move toward the end of time.

Book Summary:

WINNER OF THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD AND THE PRIX DU MEILLEUR LIVRE ÉTRANGER The Centaur is a modern retelling of the legend of Chiron, the noblest and wisest of the centaurs, who, painfully wounded yet unable to die, gave up his immortality on behalf of Prometheus. In the retelling, Olympus becomes small-town Olinger High School; Chiron is George Caldwell, a science teacher there; and Prometheus is Caldwell’s fifteen-year-old son, Peter. Brilliantly conflating the author’s remembered past with tales from Greek mythology, John Updike translates Chiron’s agonized search for relief into the incidents and accidents of three winter days spent in rural Pennsylvania in 1947. The result, said the judges of the National Book Award, is “a courageous and brilliant account of a conflict in gifts between an inarticulate American father and his highly articulate son.”

Wrested back to Cabarita Beach by her grandmother's sudden death, Kate Summer discovers a mystery buried in the past that changes everything. Kate returns home to the sleepy hamlet of Cabarita Beach and the run-down Waratah Inn for her grandmother’s funeral. She spent many happy childhood years at the inn, but all she wants to do now is sell the dilapidated boutique inn and head back to the city and her busy, professional life. But she and her two estranged sisters discover they've inherited the inn together. To sell, they need all three sisters to agree to the sale. Soon, her carefully constructed life begins to unravel and Kate decides to stay in Cabarita Beach to renovate the elegant, old building. Despite her misgivings about reviving the crumbling structure, she quickly becomes consumed with crown moulding, history and an attractive horse wrangler she can't seem to ignore. When she discovers a clue to a mystery from the past in her grandmother's things, she'll be drawn down a path that raises more questions than answers. Piece-by-piece she and her sisters will uncover the secret former life of their beloved grandmother. A life of love, intrigue, and loss. A life they never knew she had. An opportunity to sell the Inn pushes them to make a choice: commit to the Waratah Inn and family, or walk away from the Inn and each other, back to their separate and isolated lives.
