People We Met on Vacation by Emily Henry
The story of two best friends and a last chance to fall in love. Alex and Poppy seem to have nothing in common – she’s a wild child, and he wears khakis. She has insatiable wanderlust, and he prefers to stay home. Yet, ever since a chance encounter many years ago, they are best friends. They live far apart but every summer share a week of vacation together…until two years ago when everything fell apart. Now, poppy, finding herself in a rut and convincing Alex to join her, has one week to set things right on another vacation. If only she can get around the one big truth that has always stood quietly in the middle of their seemingly perfect relationship. What could possibly go wrong?
East Coast Girls by Kerry Kletter
They share countless perfect memories—and one they wish they could forget. Four childhood friends share a bond like family. All had difficult lives and the summers they spent in Montauk together were the happiest memories they made. Then, one terrible night the summer after graduation, everything changes. Twelve years later they’ve drifted apart, each haunted by her own loss. They reunite in Montauk once more, but tragedy strikes again, testing them like never before.
Diablo Mesa by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child
The next book in the popular series featuring archaeologist Nora Kelly and FBI Agent Corrie Swanson. Eccentric billionaire and Icarus Space Systems Founder, Lucas Tappan, approaches Santa Fe Archaeological Institute with an outlandish proposal. He wants to finance an excavation of the Roswell Incident site, where a UFO is alleged to have crashed in 1947.
Nora’s excavation uncovers two murder victims, faces and hands obliterated with acid to erase their identities. Enter Special Agent Corrie Swanson. As the excavation continues, things are unearthed that are bizarre and inexplicable, threatening to engulf them all in an unimaginable fate.
The Nineties by Chuck Klosterman
An honest and engaging look at the 90s. In the beginning, almost every name and address was listed in a phone book, and everyone answered their landlines because you didn’t know who it was. By the end, exposing someone’s address was an act of emotional violence, and nobody picked up their new cell phone if they didn’t know who it was. The ’90s brought about a revolution in the human condition we’re still coping to understand. Happily, Chuck Klosterman is more than up to the job.
The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield
A timeless and compelling story of intrigue, suspense, and revelation. The adventure begins when an ancient manuscript is found amid ruins deep in the Peruvian jungle. Revealing nine key insights that are critical to the evolution of human consciousness, the manuscript contains secrets that are changing the world. A gripping story of adventure and discovery.
