Title/Author Evan Help Us by Rhys Bowen
Mystery book. Very light summer reading- a mix between Agatha Christie and M C Beaton. Evan Evans is a local policeman in Wales. When two recently arrived Londoners are killed in his quiet village he sets out to find the perpetrators. Liked the characters. Looking forward to reading more books in the series.

From Elaine Pasquali
The Worst Thing I’ve Done Ursula Hegi
Despite good reviews, I found this book confusing and dull. The chapters switched back and forth among the characters, lending different perspectives to the events that unfolded. After reading a few chapters, I decided not to finish the book.
