He’s Gone by Deb Caletti (F CAL)

As the police work methodically through all the logical explanations, Dani searches frantically for a clue as to whether Ian is in fact dead or alive. And, slowly, she unpacks their relationship, plumbing the depths of her conscience, turning over and revealing the darkest of her secrets in order to discover the hard truth - about herself, her husband, and their lives together.”

The Miner’s Lady by Tracie Peterson (F PET Land.3) Christian Fiction

“When Chantel Panetta’s younger sister claims to be in love with Orlando Vittorio, Chantel knows there is no hope. The Panettas and Vittorios have been sworn enemies for decades. But when a tragedy occurs at the mine, is there any hope that the hatred that has simmered between these two families might be resolved?”

Longbourn by Jo Baker (F BAK)

“A delicious concoction of Pride and Prejudice meets Downton Abbey. . .yet Longbourn stands on its own as an engrossing, intelligent historical novel.” –James Collins

The Spymistress by Jennifer Chiaverini (F CHI)

“Born to slave-holding aristocracy in Richmond, Virginia, and educated by Northern Quakers, Elizabeth Van Lew was a paradox of her time. When her native state seceded in April 1861, Van Lew’s convictions compelled her to defy the new Confederate regime. Pledging her loyalty to the Lincoln White House, her courage would never waver, even as her wartime actions threatened not only her reputation, but also her life.”

Doing Hard Time by Stuart Woods (F WOO Sto.27)

“When Stone Barrington embarks on a trip to Bel-Air, he expects a relaxing break from the fast pace and mean streets of New York.  But trouble has a way of finding Stone.  A case that had seemingly been resolved has returned in full force—with lethal results. From the high-stakes poker tables of Las Vegas to California’s lush beachside resorts, the trail of disguise, subterfuge, and murder leads to a shocking conclusion.”

Flintlock by William W. Johnstone (WF JOH Fli.1)

“Busted out of prison by an outlaw friend, Flintlock joins a hunt for a fortune—a golden bell hanging in a remote monastery. From a vicious, superstitious half-breed to Geronimo himself, Flintlock meets the frontier’s most murderous hardcases.”

Lawless Trail by Joseph Cotton (WF COT)

“It’s Ranger Samuel Burrack against Ranger Dallas Garand in pursuit of the “gentleman outlaws” Traybo brothers. Burrack has no sympathy for the brother s who rob people’s life savings. He’s traveled as far as the Mexican Badlands to pick up their trail.”
