My Sister's Grave by Robert Dugoni (2014). Twenty years after Tracy's sister, Sarah, disappeared, a body is found. After Sarah's disappearance, seemingly the very fabric of the small town where they lived changed, let alone the magnitude of change for Tracy, who became a homicide detective as a result, and her now-dead parents. With the discovery of the body, lots of questions come to light, including whether the man in prison is actually guilty of Sarah's kidnapping and death.

Call the Nurse: True Stories of a Country Nurse on a Scottish Isle by Mary J. MacLeod (2013). Published when MacLeod was 80, she recounts the stories from her time working as a nurse and raising a family in the conservative Scottish Hebrides of the 1970s. Sort of a nonfiction Maeve Binchy collection.

Call Me Crazy by Quinn Loftis (2013). A compassionate YA story about a girl with bipolar disorder who meets a boy in a mental institution. Part of the twist is that Tally, a patient in the institution, lets Trey, there to visit his mother, think Tally's also visiting a family member.
