Quick Fiction Picks from Rosemary

Looking for a good read from OPL's online content?  Here are my recommendations, available as an ebook and/or downloadable audiobook.

The Dutch House by Ann Patchett:   This is an engrossing family mystery.  I highly recommend the downloadable audiobook from Libby, as it is narrated by Tom Hanks!   He is an excellent narrator and even the author was impressed:  “Tom Hanks took The Dutch House and gave it a layer of depth and nuance I never could have imagined". It is also available as an Express ebook from Cloud Library.

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens: A New York Times Bestseller!  Such beautiful desciptions of the North Carolina marsh that is home to the "Marsh Girl".  Available as an Express ebook from Cloud Library and from Libby in ebook and audiotbook format.

The Boy from the Woods by Harlan Coben:  A 2020 release from Harlan Coben, this is available as an Express ebook from Cloud Library and from Libby.  This is another suspenseful thriller that will keep you reading into the wee hours.  Cloud Library offers three other Harlan Coben thrillers if you need more from this author.
