Chasers by James Phelan (YA PHE Alo.1)

The Butterfly Clues by Kate Ellison (YA ELL)

Right Where I Belong by Krista McGee (JF MCG)


A Cold and Lonely Place by Sara J. Henry (F HEN)

“Troy Chance, the dogged and conflicted narrator . . . captures eloquently the travails of a small-town newspaper reporter caught in a twisting vortex that may prove to be the biggest story of her career.” –David Freed

Agent X by Noah Boyd (F BOY)

“Ex-FBI-turned-bricklayer Steve Vail is the perfect man for an operation the FBI wants kept quiet. He must find a traitor before he can give the Russians the list of Americans who are selling confidential information.

Unseen Forces by Ed Kovacs (F KOV)

“Maverick archeologist Dr. Sky Wilder has never proven any of his controversial fringe theories—until now. He breaks an impenetrable code—the key to locating an ancient alchemical text containing a formula for physical immortality.”

Deeper Water by Robert Whitlow (F WHI Tid.1)

“In the murky waters of Savannah’s shoreline, a young law student is under fire as she tries her first case. A complex mix of betrayal and deception quickly weaves its way through the case and her life.”

The Striker by Clive Cussler (F CUS Bel.6)

“Here is the Bell you haven’t met—only two years out of his apprenticeship at the Van Dorn Detective Agency. He has been hired to hunt for radical saboteurs in the coal mines, but he thinks something bigger is going on.”

Swept Away by Mary Connealy (F CON Tro.1)

“When a cowboy focused on revenge encounters a woman determined to distract him, there’s going to be trouble in Texas!”

Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter (F WAL)

“The story begins in 1962. A young innkeeper in Italy meets an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story bins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio’s back lot searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at this hotel decades earlier.”

The Truth of All Things by Kieran Shields (F SHI)

“Kieran Shields has written a knuckle-biting gothic mystery of ritual murder, revenge, and the harrowing heritage of witchcraft in New England.” –Katherine Howe

Where Lilacs Still Bloom by Jane Kirkpatrick (F KIR)

“German immigrant and farm wife Hulda Klager possesses only an eighth-grade education—and a burning desire to create something beautiful. Her interest in creating an easy-peeling apple for her pies becomes her driving purpose –a time-consuming interest in plant hybridization that puts her at odds with family and community.”

The Cove by Ron Rash (F RAS)

“Set during World War I, The Cove is a novel that speaks intimately to today’s politics. Beautifully written, tough, raw, uncompromising, entirely new.” –Colum McCann

Long Gone by Alafaire Burke (F BUR)

“After a layoff, Alice Humphrey finally lands her dream job managing a new art gallery in Manhattan. Everything is perfect until the morning Alice arrives at work to find the gallery gone—the man who hired her dead on the floor.”
