The Jaguar's Children by John Vaillant (HOUGHTON MIFFLIN HARCOURT)

Tuesday • June 7 • 1pm

Bellevue Store

Feed your body and your mind. Bring your lunch and join us on the first Tuesday of each month at 1pm to talk books at the Book Bites Book Club.

From the award-winning author of The Tiger, The Jaguar's Children tells the gripping story of a young man trapped and left to die during a failed border crossing. Taking us from the rapidly-changing Oaxaca to the dangerous border, his story exposes the tangled ties between Mexico and El Norte—land of promise and opportunity, homewrecker, and unreliable friend. And, as he fights to ensure his message makes it out, it reminds us of the power of storytelling and hope. An arresting window into the relationship between two great cultures, The Jaguar's Children shows how deeply interconnected all of us are.

What should be a cozy, fun-filled weekend in the English countryside takes a sinister turn in Ruth Ware's suspenseful, compulsive, and darkly twisted psychological thriller. When reclusive writer Leonora is invited to the English countryside for a weekend away, she reluctantly agrees to make the trip. But as the first night falls, unnerving revelations and memories begin to surface. And when Leonora wakes up in the hospital 48 hours later, she must sift through secrets, motives, and parts of her past that she would rather leave buried to find out what happened.

And as the coachman's warning echoes in her memory, Mary finds herself hopelessly ensnared in the vile, villainous schemes being hatched within its crumbling walls—and falling for a handsome, enigmatic stranger she dares not trust.
