Well, the kids are back in school, but that doesn’t mean they can’t keep coming to the library!

Hotshot by Julie Garwood (F GAR Buc. 11)

“Peyton Lockhart and her sisters have inherited Bishop’s Cove, a small, luxurious oceanfront resort, but it comes with a condition: The girls must run the resort for one year and show a profit—only then will they own it.”

The Last Witness by W. E. B. Griffin (F GRI Boh.11)

“For Philadelphia homicide detective Matt Payne, investigating a young woman’s murder in a Society Hill home invasion uncovers an ugly underworld—that of Mexican drug cartels and the Russian mob.”

The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer (F WOL)

“The summer that Nixon resigns, six teenagers at a summer camp for the arts become inseparable. Decades later the bond remains powerful, but so much else has changed. Wolitzer follows these characters from the height of youth through middle age, as their talents, fortunes, and degrees of satisfaction diverge.”

Under a Texas Sky by Dorothy Garlock (F GAR)

“Anna Finnegan has struggled her entire life until a talent manager discovers her and brings her into the world of theater. Now years later she’s about to start shooting her first movie. But the movie is plagued by one trouble after another.”

The Last Alibi by David Ellis (F ELL Kol.4)

“James Drinker is a bit of an oddball. A funny-looking, geeky loner, he walks into Jason Kolarich’s office one day with a preemptive concern: two women have recently been murdered, seemingly by the same killer, and Drinker thinks he will be the police’s main suspect. He’s the only link between the victims and he has no alibi for the night of either. Believing he’s the target of a frame-up, Drinker hires Kolarich for his defense.”

Nowhere to Run by Nancy Bush (F BUS Dug.1)

“When Liv Dugan ducks out of work for lunch, it’s just an ordinary day. When she returns, she stumbles onto a massacre. Only luck has left Liv unscathed, and that might be running out.”

Rules of Murder by Julianna Deering (F DEE)

“From the tip of his black Homburg to the crease in his cheviot trousers, Drew Farthering is the epitome of a stylist 1930s English Gentleman. His only problem? The body he just discovered.”

Scorpion Winter by Andrew Kaplan (F KAP Sco.3)

“In the frozen wastes of Siberia, a silver artifact is stolen from a dead man . . . in the Middle East a planned strike on a terrorist leader goes disastrously wrong. Two seemingly unrelated incidents have placed the former CIA covert operative-turned-freelance spy, code-named Scorpion, in a desperate position.”

Island Girls by Nancy Thayer (F THA)

“Charming ladies’ man Rory Randall dies with one last trick up his sleeve: His will includes a calculating clause mandating a summer-long reunion for his daughters, all from different marriages - that is, if they hope to inherit his posh Nantucket house.”

One Heart to Win by Johanna Lindsey (F LIN)

“Some young ladies marry for money and social standing, a few lucky ones marry for love - but Tiffany Warren is marrying to end a feud. Honoring her mother’s promise, Tiffany reluctantly travels west to meet her estranged father and his enemy’s eldest son, rancher Hunter Callahan.”
