Something Borrowed, Someone Dead: An Agatha Raisin Mystery
Beaton, M. C.
Gloria French was a jolly widow with dyed blonde hair, a raucous laugh and rosy cheeks. When she first moved from London to the charming Cotswolds hills, she was heartily welcomed. She seemed do-gooder par excellence, raising funds for the church and caring for the elderly. But she had a nasty habit of borrowing things and not giving them back, just small things, a teapot here, a set of silverware there. So it’s quite the shock when she is found dead, murdered by a poisoned bottle of elderberry wine.

Child, Lee

The old stone building is the closest thing to a home he ever had.  Reacher is there to meet in personal the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner, so far just a warm, intriguing voice on the phone.  But it isn’t Turner behind the CO’s desk. And Reacher is hit with two pieces of shocking news, one with serious criminal consequences, and one too personal to even think about.
