Our Picks

T is for Trespass: Number 1 in Hardcover Fiction

T is for Trespass - Kinsey Millhone MysteriesThe 20th novel in Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone series is one of the best. In her last outing, “S” IS FOR SILENCE, Grafton altered her style a bit, actually entering other characters’ points of view to tell parts of the story so that they shared the narrating duties with Kinsey herself. With this new novel, that device is used to chilling effect–between reports from Kinsey, we enter the mind of a woman who is possibly her most twisted adversary to date.

Solana Rojas is a caregiver, a home-help nurse’s aide much like the thousands you’ll find all over America. But the woman assigned to care for Kinsey’s elderly friend is not your usual “angel of mercy.” For one thing, she is not the real Solana Rojas–she has stolen that woman’s identity. And she has plans. To tell you more of the plot would be–well, criminal.

The best aspect of Grafton’s excellent series is her ability to keep up with current social and legal problems, despite the fact that Kinsey’s stories are set somewhere in the 1980s. In this novel we have identity theft, the inherent problems of home care, and–perhaps most disturbing–the tendency of society in general to ignore and/or mistreat our most vulnerable citizens. At least this elderly victim has Kinsey Millhone as a champion. And what a champion she is! “T” IS FOR TRESPASS will captivate longtime Grafton fans, and it should make her a lot of new fans as well. Highly recommended.

Star Wars: A Pop-Up Guide to the Galaxy: Number 1 in Children’ Books

Star Wars: A Pop-Up Guide to the Galaxy - Matthew ReinhartThis book is a strange and wonderful surprise. Easily the best Star Wars classic sage tie-in of the 30th anniversary year, 2007. This is a unique labour of love to be sure, and perhaps the most inspiring and creative piece about the Holy Trilogy that I have ever seen in a book form. In fact, I would even go so far as to say perhaps the best book that I have ever read. Seriously, I read this book with my 4-year old son together, and we savoured every page, every fold-out, and every flap. If you do read this book with a child, read it slowly and enjoy the one-of-a-kind surprises that are waiting behind every hand-crafted door. For collectors, I would buy an extra copy or two because this is also a beautiful collector’s item. Save one for later, you never know when you might want an extra copy as an incredibly special gift. I expect to be reading this book many, many more times.

1,000 Places to See in the U.S.A. & Canada Before You Die: Number 5 in Paperback Advice

1,000 Places to See in the U.S.A. & Canada Before You Die - Patricia SchultzI loved Patricia Schultz’s 1,000 Places to See Before You Die, and gave away copies to friends who loved travelling. This second follow-up, 1,000 Places to See in the USA and Canada Before You Die is another winner. Though Canada is not as comprehensively covered as the USA, the book serves its purpose – to entertain and inspire, even armchair travellers like me. There are enough nuggets of information in here, and a treasure trove of ideas that can keep most aspiring/keen travellers happy, content, and entertained.
