Great New Books

The New Girl by Daniel Silva

At an exclusive private school in Switzerland, mystery surrounds the identity of the beautiful girl who arrives each morning and leaves each afternoon in a heavily protected motorcade fit for a head of state. She is said to be the daughter of a wealthy international businessman. She is not. And when she is brutally kidnapped across the border in the Haute-Savoie region of France, Gabriel Allon, the legendary chief of Israeli intelligence, is thrust into a deadly secret war with an old enemy that will determine the future of the Middle East --and perhaps the world . . .

Shamed by Linda Castillo

In this latest from the New York Times best-selling Amish mystery whiz, a woman is murdered and her seven-year-old granddaughter abducted, leaving Chief of Police Kate Burkholder trying to wrestle answers from their upstanding but secretive family and the residents of a remote Old Order Amish settlement.

Bark of Night by David Rosenfelt

In this 19th "Andy Carpenter" mystery, the New Jersey lawyer is called into his vet's office for some legal advice. Someone has brought in a French bulldog to be put down. However, the dog turns out to be healthy, and his microchip reveals that his name is Truman and his owner has been murdered. A young man has already been arrested for the crime, and Andy certainly doesn't want to get involved. Pressure from his wife and concern for Truman soon propel him into the young man's defense. A mob hit man's body found in a local river and several suspicious deaths of homeless men complicate the case, which broadens to include Philadelphia, Boston, and Florida's Gulf Coast. Andy and his legal team must figure out whodunit and why before the trial is over.

A Beginner’s Guide to the End: Practical Advice for Living Life and Facing Death by B.J. Miller, M.D. and Shoshana Berger

This is a clear-eyed and big-hearted action plan for approaching the end of life, written to help readers feel more in control of an experience that so often seems anything but. This book offers everything from step-by-step instructions for how to do your paperwork and navigate the healthcare system to answers to questions you might be afraid to ask your doctor. You'll be walked through how to break the news to your employer, whether to share old secrets with your family, how to face friends who might not be as empathetic as you'd hoped, and to how to talk to your children about your will. There are also lessons for survivors, like how shut down a loved one's social media accounts, clean out the house, and write a great eulogy.


It used to be when we thought about fiber, one word likely came to mind: ”roughage.” These days, the benefits of what’s essentially the non-digestible components of plant foods are seen as much bigger. Fiber’s even been called “the new protein” for all the attention it’s attracting. Among other things, fiber-rich diets have been shown to reduce the risk for obesity, type 2 diabetes, cancer and, most significantly, cardiovascular disease. The growing awareness of the critical role our gut microorganisms play in both physical and mental health has also brought heightened interest to the benefits of consuming fiber-rich foods. We’re also learning more about the different types and properties of dietary fiber, which has for some time been divided into soluble and insoluble types. Soluble fiber, which dissolves in water, can help lower glucose levels and blood cholesterol. Foods with soluble fiber include oatmeal, nuts, beans, lentils, apples and blueberries. Insoluble fiber helps food move through your digestive system, preventing constipation. Foods with this type of fiber include wheat, whole wheat  bread, whole grain couscous, brown rice, legumes, carrots, cucumbers and tomatoes.

Stingy Schobel Says

Not so great thrift store buys continued: bedding, which can be hard to sanitize… beauty products, which may be beyond their prime even if still sealed…power tools, which could have hidden wear making them dangerous to use…toys, which could harbor contaminants or safety hazards…car seats, whose integrity cannot be adequately checked…cribs, which may be unsafe.
