Kate says: A captivating debut, Los Alamos in a whole new light, and a woman who never loses sight of her true self: Elizabeth J. Church's The Atomic Weight of Love has it all. Meridian is a character equal parts infuriating and admirable, and I enjoyed every moment shared with her.

Published: Minotaur Books - August 30th, 2016

Kate says: This is the twelfth book in Louise Penny's Chief Inspector Gamache series set in the small town of Three Pines just across the border in Quebec. I have absolutely fallen in love with these books over the years. Each time I finish one, I invariably want to go back and binge read them all. It's not just the plot and character development that draws you in, it's her ability to weave in insights on the human condition.
