Laura Lamont’s Life
in Pictures, by Emma
Straub. In 1920, young
Elsa Emerson is a pretty
blonde who loves the attention
she gets when acting on stage.
When tragedy strikes before she’s
out of her teens, Elsa marries and heads
to Los Angeles. Irving Green discovers her,

and encourages her to become
a brunette and change her
name. Irving becomes her great
love, and she goes on to become an
Academy Award–winning actress.
For most of us, the 1920s might as well be
the 1820s because that decade seems so very
distant from contemporary life. Even so,
Straub’s novel does a great job of showing
how one woman wrestles with balancing
family, career and personal happiness, all
while trying to remain true to herself.

Hidden Order, by Brad Thor. Brad Thor is
consistently on my list of go-to authors for
page-turning thrillers. And summer is my
favorite time of year to reach for one of his
well-plotted books with twists and turns that
unfold at breakneck speed.
In this novel, a series of high-profile
Washington, D.C., kidnappings has the city in
a panic. As the victims begin to turn up dead
and the ransom demand is made public,
panic turns into terror. With the United States
on the verge of collapse, covert counterterror-ism operative Scot Harvath is summoned to
Washington, D.C., to untangle a web of conspiracy centuries in the making.
