Reader Alicia recommends “At the Duke’s Pleasure” by Tracy Anne Warren.
Keller, a former hitman who last appeared in Lawrence Block’s “Hit and Run,” is now married with a small daughter and living in New Orleans. In Block’s latest novel, “Hit Me,” Keller has gone straight, and he and a partner are rehabbing property, but jobs have dried up in the construction business. When Dot, a former associate from his crime days, calls him up to offer him his old job back, Keller agrees to take on just one more client.
“The Space Between Us” by Thrity Umrigar is a favorite of reader Kathy.
“I read this book years back and I loved it. It still comes to my mind when I think of some of the best books I’ve ever read. I like to read about different cultures, and this book tells of two women in India and the caste system that binds them. It’s marvelous how their worlds diverge.”
