Michele's Picks

Michele has been involved in bookselling and publishing since 1992 when she began working at Book King in Rutland.  After several years in the publishing industry she was very happy to be able to return to a local independent bookstore and join the Phoenix Books family.  As a child she always had a book in her hands and one or two more stashed in her backpack just in case the opportunity to read presented itself.  Now a fan of mostly contemporary fiction and mysteries, she also has a love for cookbooks - and when not reading can be found cooking or baking for friends and family.

An amazing debut novel, I was hooked on this mystery from the first page!  Set in a drought-ridden farming community in Australia where everything is not always as it seems and everyone has their share of secrets, The Dry is a captivating whodunit that kept me guessing until the very end.
