The Man Who Died Twice by Richard Osman
This is the second book in the Thursday Murder Club series. Mary suggested the first book The Thursday Murder Club in a previous staff pick and I loved reading it. We have been waiting in anticipation of the second book. The four main characters, Elizabeth, Joyce, Ron, and Ibrahim are residents of a retirement village in England. They work together to solve the murder of a spy. If you enjoy interesting characters and twisty plots, check out the titles. You will not be disappointed.

Katie: The Last Night in London by Karen White
Taking place between London during the Blitz and present day. A captivating story of friendship but also love and betrayal. A true page turner! If you’ve enjoyed my previous picks of The Book of Lost Names by Kristen Harmel or Kristen Hannah’s The ightingale, you’ll want to read this!

Megan: A Turkey for Thanksgiving by Eve Bunting
My pick this month is one of my favorite picture books. This will definitely
become a family favorite! “Mr. and Mrs. Moose invite all their animal friends for Thanksgiving dinner and the only one missing is Turkey. When they set out to find him, Turkey is quaking with fear because he doesn't realize that his hosts want him at their table, not on it.” –Amazon
