1. Senior Housing Reads: The Last Thing He Told Me

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Laura Dave comes another critically claimed thriller novel that follows a woman’s journey to finding the truth about the disappearance of her beloved husband. Owen Michaels was a good husband to her wife of one year Hannah.

2. Me Before You

#1 New York Times bestselling author Jojo Moyes behind “The Giver of Stars” releases another novel now adapted into a hit movie. Me Before You follows the story of Louisa Clark, an ordinary girl who had to take a job for a wheelchair-bound ex-Master of the Universe who’s bossy and moody at the same time.
