Their newest target is Carter Grove, a former White House chief of staff and the ruthless leader of a private security agency. Grove has stolen a rare Chinese artifact from the Smithsonian, a crime that will torpedo U.S. relations with China if it ever becomes public.”

The Intern’s Handbook by Shane Kuhn (F KUH)

“John Lago is New York City’s most successful hit man. Part confessional, part how-to, the handbook chronicles John’s final assignment, a twisted thrill ride in which he is pitted against the toughest - and sexiest - adversary he’s ever faced: Alice, an FBI agent assigned to take down the same law partner he’s been assigned to kill.”

A Promise for Ellie by Lauraine Snelling (F SNE Dau.1)

“Andrew Bjorklund and Ellie Wold make plans to marry once the harvest is over and their new house is finished. But Toby Valders is determined to get even for all the drubbings he has taken from Andrew. Andrew, however, has promised Ellie there will be no more fistfights. But when their new barn burns--and many of their possessions and dreams with it--Andrew throws his vows of nonviolence aside, reaping bitter consequences.”

The Other Story by Tatiana De Rosnay (F ROS)

“Vacationing at a luxurious Tuscan island resort, Nicolas Duhamel is hopeful that the ghosts of his past have finally been put to rest. But Nicolas must reexamine everything he thought he knew, as he learns that, however deeply buried, the secrets of the past always find a way out.”

Under a Silent Moon by Elizabeth Haynes (F HAY Lou.1)

“A beautiful young woman has been found dead, blood all over the cottage she lives in. At the same time, police respond to a reported female suicide, where a car has fallen into a local quarry. As DI Louisa Smith and her team gather the evidence, they discover a link between these two women, which sealed their dreadful fate one cold night, under a silent moon.”

Montana by Gwen Florio (F FLO Wic.1)

“Foreign correspondent Lola Wicks has been downsized from her Kabul posting. She heads to Montana for some R&R at a friend’s cabin, but discovers her friend shot dead. She can’t get out of Montana fast enough, but she’s held as a potential witness, thwarting her plan to return on her own to Afghanistan to write the stories she’s sure will persuade her editors to change their minds. Her best chance of leaving quickly is to solve the case herself.”
