Great New Books

A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership by James Comey

This is the long awaited memoir from former FBI director James Comey. On November 11, President Trump called Comey a political hack “proven to be a liar.” Comey responded by quoting from an 1855 sermon by the Rev. Charles Haddon Spurgeon: “If you want the truth to go round the world you must hire an express train to pull it; but if you want a lie to go round the world, it will fly.” Perhaps this memoir’s title is another possible response.

The Fallen by David Baldacci

Amos Decker is the Memory man. Following a football-related injury that altered his personality, Decker is now unable to forget even the smallest detail—as much a curse as it is a blessing. In Baldacci’s new thriller, Decker’s life might be about to change again.

The Only Story by Julian Barnes

A love affair between a 48-year-old and a 19-year-old is hardly unheard of, but Man Booker Prize winner Barnes reverses gender expectations with Paul falling for Susan McLeod. Decades later, with Susan dead, Paul contemplates all that went so well and all that finally went wrong.

The Family Gathering by Robyn Carr

At the juncture of the Colorado and Continental Divide trails, Sullivan’s Crossing is home to a new series from Carr. A beautifully crafted plot with multiple story lines, relatable characters, and a setting that makes readers want to head for the Rockies add up to another solid title.

Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell

Laurel Mack is still recovering from the loss of her teenage daughter Ellie. It cost her marriage. Now getting on with her life, Laurel meets Floyd. As the relationship heats up, Laurel meets Floyd’s daughter, unanswered questions from a decade ago return to haunt her. For thriller readers, Jewell’s latest will not disappoint. Sharply written and filled with twists and turns.

Stingy Schobel Says

In addition to well-known booking sites when searching for low cost travel, try new ones such as Rome2Rio and Momondo. New sites are eager to grab new customers, so you might find an even better deal with such lesser known services. For hotels, try Jetsetter and Search for deals on food, activities, etc. at your destination through Groupon and Living Social.
