It's time for another Staff Pick of the week--a reading, listening or viewing suggestion from us to you. Not all suggestions work for all people, but you just might find something you'll like!
If you need more help selecting something, we have online tools like Book Browse and our Online Catalog, or you can ask one of our friendly staff members to help search for you.
One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid
This is a really good winter evening read. Our heroine, Emma Blair, is grieving over her husband who was lost at sea, when she mets and falls in love with a former classmate.
Life is getting better, until she gets a call from her husband letting her know he is alive and coming home. Now Emma is faced with a life changing decision.
I could not put this book down.
If One True Loves interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different Staff Pick.
