The White Forest by Adam McOmber (F MCO) “What other novelist could take a Victorian gothic setting, the most obscure elements of medieval cosmology, a sinister secret society, and an old-fashioned love triangle . . . to produce something so delightful and utterly unique?” –Camille DeAngelis

The Malice of Fortune by Micael Ennis (F ENN)

“Ennis brings the Renaissance alive. . . and dishes out a simmering stew, thick with chicanery, bloodshed, dastardly deeds, code-breaking, puzzle-solving, and a cast of characters that includes the real-life courtesan whose brassiness, brains, and beauty dazzle even her employer and nemesis: the Pope.” –Katherine Neville

The Bridesmaid by Beverly Lewis (LEW Hic.2)

“Joanna Kurtz has made several trips to the altar, but never as a bride. The young Amish woman is a closet writer whose stories aren’t her only secret.”

A Killing in the Hills by Julia Keller (F KEL)

“What’s happening in Acker’s Gap, West Virginia? Three elderly men gunned down at the local diner, plenty of witnesses—it happened so fast that no one seems to have gotten a good look at the shooter. But the teenaged daughter of the prosecuting attorney for the county thinks she might be able to help her mom do her job.”

City of Women by David R. Gillham (F GIL)

“A masterful evocation of Hitler’s Berlin in all its claustrophobia, duplicity, and fear, this thriller of searing intensity asks the most urgent of questions—how to love, whom to trust, what can be saved in the very darkest of times.” –Margaret Leroy

The Lost Prince by Selden Edwards (F EDW)

“Eleanor Burden has no choice but to settle into her expected place in society, marry the man she is supposed to marry, much like all the other young women she grew up within 1890s Boston. With one exception—she possesses an unshakable belief that she has advance knowledge of every major historical event to come during her lifetime.

The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom (F ALB)

“Banished to this cave, he must listen to the world’s every plea—for more minutes, more hours, more years, more time. He has been here an eternity. Soon Father Time will be free to return to Earth and finish what he started.”

Wilderness by Lance Weller (F WEL)

“Set in the war-torn South and the wilds of the Pacific Northwest, this is the story of a country torn in two and of the hard healing afterward, of a simple soldier who journeys through the savagery of war and the lawlessness of men to a place of redemption.” –Claire Davis

The Tombs by Clive Cussler (F CUS Far.4)

“The Fargos are intrigued when an archaeologist friend requests their help excavating a top-secret historical site. What they find sets them on a hut for a prize greater than they could ever imagine.”

The Edge of Nowhere by Elizabeth George (F GEO Sar.1)

“Becca King is on the run. Her ability to hear “whispers”—the thoughts of others—has put her at risk. Blending strands of mystery and romance and a hint of the paranormal in a haunting setting this book is the first in a cycle of books that will take Becca and her friends through their teenage years.”

Buffalo Bill’s Dead Now by Margaret Coel (F COE Fat.16)

“After more than 120 years, the regalia worn by Chief Black heart in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show were supposed to returned to his people. But the cartons containing the relics were empty. Father John and Vicky have their suspicions.”
