Introducing... Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter

Introducing books through the first chapter or so...

The dying actress arrived in his village the only way one could come directly-- in a boat that motored into the cove, lurched past the rock jetty, and bumped against the end of the pier. She wavered a moment in the boat's stern, then extended a slender hand to grip the mahogany railing; with the other, she pressed a wide-brimmed hat against her head. All around her, shards of sunlight broke on the flickering waves.

Awesome review. I'm not sure about this one, but you just may have persuaded me. I haven't listened to many audio books, but they sure are popular. Have a great week!
