Death Comes for the Archbishop
Death Comes for the Archbishop by Willa Cather (Historical Fiction)
Based on true events, this book explores the lives of 2 Catholic missionaries in Santa Fe in the late 19th Century. It is divided into a series of shorter books, and though it is narrative in nature, it is not particularly plot driven. The descriptions of the western landscape and the peculiarities of the Americans, Mexicans, and Indians who inhabit the space are vibrant and evocative. Recurring themes of gardens, utopia, religious practices, and godly love are explored. It is definitely not a book I couldn't put down, but I did enjoy it. -- Added by OperaChelle on 03/06/2016

The Charlie Chaplin Murder Mystery
The Charlie Chaplin Murder Mystery by Wes D. Gehring (Mystery/Suspense)
A professor of literature (specifically film) at a mid-Western university is murdered and his friend, also a professor of film, investigates. The story revolves around a supposedly missing film made by Charlie Chaplin. A little too much wise-cracking dialogue for me, almost every other line. Much reference to films, actors, and cultural icons of the 1920s and 1930s. Some good film history is incorporated into the story, and the protagonist's college-student daughter is a great character. -- Added by ElizabethR on 03/06/2016

The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler (Other Fiction)
Required reading if you are an Austenite or even just a fan of her book. A humorous book that re-imagines some of Austen's best romantic couples as modern readers of her novels. -- Added by crazycat66 on 03/06/2016
