Watching You by Lisa Jewell
Melville Heights is one of the nicest neighborhoods in Bristol, England—but no one is who they seem and everyone is hiding something. One man has a secret obsession on another, and his crush’s son has noticed… A teenage girl dislikes her headmaster, one reason being that he’s taken a particular liking to her best friend and fellow classmate… And the girl’s mother, who does have some mental health issues, is convinced that the headmaster has been stalking her. They all live in the same neighborhood. Who has been murdered—and who would have wanted one of their neighbors dead?

The Cat Men of Gotham by Peggy Gavan
The nineteenth century was a rough time to be a stray cat in New York City where humans dealt with feline overpopulation by gassing unwanted cats or tossing them in rivers. But a few lucky strays were found by a diverse array of men—including firemen, cops, athletes, and politicians—who rescued them from the streets and welcomed them into their homes and hearts. Among the forty-two profiles in this book, we find many feline Cinderella stories and are introduced to some remarkable men and many extraordinary cats as well, from Chinese stowaways prowling the Chelsea Piers to the sole feline survivor of the USS Maine explosion.
