Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again
Starring: Amanda Seyfried
Summary: Discover Donna's young life, experiencing the fun she had with the three possible dads of Sophie.  As she reflects on her mom's journey, Sophie finds herself to be more like her mother than she ever even realized.

Sorry to Bother You
Starring: Lakeith Stanfield
Summary: In an alternate version of Oakland, Cassius Green gets a telemarketing job and finds the commission paid job a dispriting struggle as a black man selling to predominately white people over the phone.  That changes when a veteran advises him to use his "white voice," and the attitude behind it to make himself more appealing to customers.  With a bizarrely high-pitched accent, Cassius becomes a success even as his colleagues form a union to improve their miserable jobs.  Regardless, Cassius finds himself promoted a "Power Caller" selling the most morally abhorrent but lucrative products and services as his connection to his girlfriend and colleagues fades away.  However, Cassius' conscience arises anew as he finds himself in the midst of his boss' bizarre world of condescending bigoted decadence and his sinister plans create the perfect subservient work force with Cassius' help.

The Reckoning
Author: John Grisham
Summary: Pete Banning was Clanton's favorite son, a returning war hero, the patriarch of a prominent family, a farmer, father, neighbor, and a faithful member of the Methodist church.  Then one cool October morning in 1946, he rose early, drove into town, walked into the Church, and calmly shot and killed the Reverend Dexter Bell.  As if the murder wasn't shocking enough, it was even more baffling that Pete's only statement about it - to the sheriff, to his defense attorney, to the judge, to his family and friends, and to the people of Clanton - was "I have nothing to say."  And so the murder of the esteemed Reverend Bell became the most mysterious and unforgettable crime Ford County had ever known.

Vendetta
Author: Iris Johansen
Summary: With his dying breath, Carl Venable, head of the CIA task force on terrorism and Jude Brandon's final link to terrorist ringleader Max Huber, gives Brandon a mandate: keep his daughter, Rachel, safe at any cost.  But Rachel Venable has a shocking, twisted past of her own, one that comes rushing back after her medical clinic in Guyana is attacked by Huber - the same man who murdered her father and kept her imprisoned for months.  Brandon and Catherine Ling, Rachel's longtime ally and fierce protector, are determined to keep Rachel out of danger, but she knows that it's impossible to stay hidden when Max Huber wants you dead.  As Rachel and Brandon race against the clock to bring Huber down before he can orchestrate a disaster that will lay waste to half the country, they also fight a growing attraction to each other - an attraction that could prove just as dangerous as Huber himself.

Not Quite Over You
Author: Susan Mallery
Summary: Silver Tesdal has a head for business and a mouth for kissing, and banker Drew Lovato has his eye on both.  But ever since he was dumb enough to let her go, she's kept him at a distance.  When the bank turns her down for a loan, Drew sees a double opportunity - he can finance her brilliant, unique idea to rock Happily Inc's wedding industry and win back her trust.  Despite her reputation, Silver's not as tough as she seems.  Losing Drew nearly destroyed her.  Still, his kisses are as tempting as his offer to invest in her business.  If she can't quite get over him, maybe she should get under him and knock him out of her system once and for all.  But her best laid plans begin to unravel as Silver finds herself falling even harder than when they were high school sweethearts.  Which means that she'll have to come clean about the secret she's been hiding from him for years - and risk losing him forever.
