What’s New?

Embarking on a summer adventure in Scotland, best friends Veronica and Mackenna find romance and danger when they are transported to the kingdom of Doon, a hidden village that appears once every 100 years. The first book, Doon, in a series by the same name, by authors Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon, was inspired by the musical Brigadoon.

In The Cartel, sequel to The Power of the Dog by Don Winslow, Adán Barrera, kingpin of El Federación, is languishing in a California federal prison. Ex-DEA agent Art Keller passes his days in a monastery, having lost everything to his thirty-year blood feud with the drug lord. Then Barrera escapes. Now, there’s a two-million-dollar bounty on Keller’s head and no one else capable of taking Barrera down.

William and J.A. Johnstone continue the wild, epic saga of Tim Colter with the building of the transcontinental railroad … and the making of the American Dream, in The Edge of Violence.

Bellevue Square by Michael Redhill (Winner of the 2017 Scotiabank Giller Prize), is a darkly comic literary thriller about a woman who fears for her sanity—and then her life—when she learns that her doppelganger has appeared in a local park.

When the president of a black fraternity is murdered, defense attorney Jack Swyteck navigates a maelstrom of racial uprisings as he investigates the chief suspect, in A Death in Live Oak, by James Grippando.

On a rainy afternoon, a mother’s life is shattered as her son slips from her grip and runs into the street.  I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh follows Jenna Gray as she tries to escape the memory of the car accident and desperately tries to heal from the loss of her child and the rest of her painful past.  At the same time, the novel tracks the pair of Bristol police investigators trying to get to the bottom of this twist-filled hit-and-run case.

Finally, in The Frontiersman’s Daughter by Laura Frantz, Lael Click finds strength in the teachings of her distant relative Ma Horn and the rugged land of Kentucky, but, due to the arrival of a handsome doctor, begins to question her perception of the world, God, and herself.
