Private L. A. by James Patterson (F PAT Pri.7)

“Thom and Jennifer Harlow may be two of the biggest mega movie stars in the world, but they’re also great parents, philanthropists and just all-around good people. When they disappear without a word from their ranch, even world-renowned Private Investigator Jack Morgan can’t get to the truth.

The Childhood of Jesus by J. M. Coetzee (F COE)

“After crossing oceans, a man and a boy arrive in a new land. Here they are each assigned a name and an age, and held in a camp in the desert while they learn Spanish, the language of their new country David’s new mother comes to realize that he is an exceptional child, but the school authorities detect a rebellious streak in him and insist he be sent to a special school far away. His mother refuses to yield him up, and it is Simon who must drive the car as the trio flees across the mountains.”

A Fall of Marigolds by Susan Meissner (F MEI)

“September 1911. On Ellis Island in New York Harbor, Nurse Clara Wood cannot face returning to Manhattan, where the man she loved fell to his death in the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire. Then, while caring for a fevered immigrant whose own loss mirrors hers, she becomes intrigued by a name embroidered onto the scarf he carries…and finds herself caught in a dilemma that compels her to confront the truth about the assumptions she’s made. Will what she learns devastate her or free her?”

“Chet Byrnes is building a new life in Arizona Territory as he expands his cattle ranching operation--but trouble just keeps coming. A brutal Apache attack on his cattle drive. A friend’s young daughter is abducted, and the search leads Chet and his men to the wild town of Tombstone and ultimately south of the border, where everything comes with a price . . . and life is cheap.”
