A Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley Cash (F CAS)

“Jess Hall is enormously protective of his older brother, who is a mute whom everyone calls Stump. Stump can’t help sneaking a look at something he’s not supposed to—an act that has catastrophic repercussions, shattering both his world and Jess’s. Jess is thrust into an adulthood for which he’s not prepared.”

Good Junk by Ed Novacs (F NOV Cli.2)

Truth in Advertising by John Kenney (F KEN)

“Fin Dolan, a mildly successful advertising writer, learns that his long-estranged and once-abusive father has fallen ill. It’s a wake-up call for Fin to reevaluate the choices he’s made and whether to finally tell the truth about his past.”

Love Saves the Day by Gwen Cooper (F COO)

“. . . a charming story of love lost and found, both in human hearts and that of one very special cat. At its heart, this book is an exploration of unconditional love between mother and daughter, as seen through the eyes of a creature who lives for just this.” –Barbara Delinsky

Suspect by Robert Crais (F CRA)

“LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, nearly killed him, and left him enraged and ashamed. He is unfit for duty –until he meets his new partner. Maggie is a German shepherd who survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan before she lost her handler. They are each other’s last chance.”

The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews (F AND)

“Saddened and unable to abandon her resentment toward the Nazi war machine that took her husband’s life, young and attractive Helen Mason is living a bitter, lonely existence. Betrayed and left for dead, German U-boat officer Josef Landermann washes ashore in a sleepy town along the northern gulf coast, looking to Helen for survival.”

Billy Flynn’s Long Halftime Walk by Ben Fountain (F FOU)

“Billy Lynn, a nineteen-year old Texas native and Silver Star-winning hero, has been thrust into the company of the Dallas Cowboy’s owner and his coterie for the Thanksgiving game. Over the course of this day before returning to Iraq, Billy will face a heart-wrenching decision and discover pure love and a bitter wisdom far beyond his years.”

Dream Eyes by Jayne Ann Krentz (F KRE Leg.2)

“Gwen Frazier is no stranger to ghosts. But finding justice for the dead is something she’s not trained to do and a luxury she can’t afford. What pays the bills is her work as a psychic counselor who sees auras and interprets dreams. The death of her mentor brings Gwen back to the small town where she survived an assault by a killer.”

Along Wooded Paths by Tricia Goyer (F GOY Big.2)

“Marianna Sommer is torn between the Amish man from Indiana whom she has long planned on marrying and the friendly Englischer who models a closer walk with God than she’s ever seen before.”
