If you're looking for a good mystery for fall, look no further than Desolation Mountain. William Kent Krueger weaves a dynamic mystery involving a plane crash, a mystic vision and political intrigue, all against the beautiful backdrop of a northern Minnesota autumn. Krueger's portrait of an indigenous community combined with his almost reverent depiction of the forests and hills of Minnesota leave me feeling warm and nostalgic, while the energy of the story keeps me on the edge of my seat. This is a perfect book for a rainy fall day with a cup of warm apple cider in your hand.

You know the formula: Put a bunch of couples in a beautiful country bed and breakfast, but then add a snowstorm, subtract the power, and kill someone. Yet Shari Lapena executes it flawlessly, building the tension steadily as we learn more about each of the guests, and the storm increases intensity. Is it someone already present at the inn? Or is there an intruder that no one knows about yet? Who is next? An homage to the great mystery writers of the past, An Unwanted Guest will keep you entertained and on the edge of your seat until the killer is finally revealed.

In this fast-paced, claustrophobic thriller, Han Yu-jin wakes in a blood-soaked bed with no memory of the previous night. In a story told through revealing flashbacks and unnerving present tense interactions with Yu-jin’s family, the pages turn with a sense of discovery, danger and anticipation that makes The Good Son a great summer read.
