Moriarty by Anthony Horowitz
This is an official "Conan Doyle Estate" approved novel of Sherlock Holmes and the second officially sanctioned novel by Anthony Horowitz. This is the story of a mystery involving two detectives after the "death" of Sherlock Holmes at the Reichenbach Falls. A Pinkerton agent travels to Europe in pursuit of an American agent who desires Moriarty's status as the Napoleon of crime now that he is dead.  Inspector Jones, a student of Holmes' methods, helps this agent.  The crimes are brutal. The pace is slow at first with background information but picks up about chapter six (so stick with the book, you won't be sorry!). While Holmes and Watson are not the main characters, it is interesting to see how these two men feel about Holmes' death and their desire to continue his work and the effect his life had on their own lives.
I give 5 stars and I hope Anthony Horowitz will write more. Even though this is the second book, it is not necessary to read "The House of Silk."
Winnie: The True Story of the Bear Who Inspired Winne-the-Pooh by Sally M Walker
Did you know there was a real bear that inspired Winnie-the-Pooh?  Well, this is her story! 
There was a bear at a train station who needed a home.  Harry Colebourn, a veterinarian in the military, bought the bear and named her Winnipeg, Winnie for short.  She lived with Harry in a military camp until Harry had to go off to war.  Winnie could not go with Harry, she went to live in the London Zoo where everyone loved her.  While she was at the zoo, a little boy name Christopher Robin visited her.
This book is a great story for Winnie-the-Pooh fans and animal lovers!
The Light Between Oceans by ML Stedman
I am about halfway through this book and simply cannot put it down. Isabel's tragic loss causes her to make a decision that challenges Tom's moral compass and torments him mentally. Completely heartbroken and isolated, I wonder if I would have behaved any differently. Can't wait to see how it ends!
