NEW ARRIVALS – Quotes are from the publishers summary.

Bury Your Dead by Louise Penny (F PEN Gam.6). Mystery Fiction. "An obsessive historian’s quest for the remains of the founder of Quebec, Samuel de Champlain, ends in murder. Could a secret buried with Champlain for nearly 400 years be so dreadful that someone would kill to protect it?"

Embers of Love by Tracie Peterson (F PET Str.1). Christian Romantic Fiction. "The logging industry in eastern Texas is booming, and Deborah Vandermark plans to assist her family’s business now that she’s completed college. Then she meets Dr. Christopher Clayton, sparking her interest not only in medicine and science—but the doctor, too. When typhoid begins to spread and her best friend’s jilted fiancé returns, Deborah wonders if true love can overcome such obstacles ... for those dearest to her, and for herself."

The Widower’s Tale by Julia Glass (F GLA). Romantic Fiction. "Enjoying an active but lonely rural life, seventy-year-old Percy allows a progressive preschool to move into his barn and transform his quiet home into a lively, youthful community that compels him to reexamine the choices he made after his wife’s death."

The Garden of Betrayal by Lee Vance (F VAN). Suspense Fiction. "Manhattan, 2002. Mark has it all: Claire, the love of his life; two beautiful children; a high-powered Wall Street job. Until one night while on a neighborhood errand by himself, his twelve-year-old son, Kyle, vanishes: brutally snatched off the streets of New York. Nine years later, on the same day that a natural gas pipeline in Russia is blown up be terrorists, a new lead opens up in Kyle’s case. There can’t possibly be a connection... can there?"
