Afterwards by Rosamund Lupton 

"In the aftermath of the devastating fire that almost destroys her family, Grace embarks on a mission to find the person responsible and protect her children from further harm."

The Magic Room by Jeffrey Zaslow

This is a very touching book about how 8 brides come to the Magic Room at Becker's Bridal, for their special wedding dresses.  It  focuses on the changing views of how they dress for the occasion, as  things have changed from the young sheltered brides of the early 20th century to the modern brides now.  Each story speaks of their hopes for the future and for what we wish our daughters to find in a marriage.  It is told from the Becker family multi-generational oowners of the shop and is very touching.  I really enjoyed it, although I often had to stop and dab at my eyes as the stories unfolded.  It's a shame that Jeffrey Zaslow was recently killed in an auto accident and won't live to share this moment with his young daughters.  As he reflected that he was looking forward to doing that, just before he died.

The Killings at Badger's Drift by Caroline Graham

I love British mysteries, cozies and others as well. I'm always happy to come across an older series I've missed, so I can start at the beginning and read on through the next several books without having to wait for each one to be published.  This one, first in the Chief Inspector Barnaby series, was very enjoyable, with charming characters in a small English village, some humor, and clever crime-solving.  And of course there is some sinisterness lurking in the village (who killed 80-year-old Emily Simpson?)...
