Bird in Hand
by Christina Baker Kline

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train, and the critically acclaimed author of The Way Life Should Be, comes a novel about the choices we make, how they shape our lives, and how they can change them forever—includes a special PS section featuring insights, interviews, and more.

Four people, two marriages, one lifelong friendship: Everything is about to change.

It was dark. It was raining. It was just an accident. On the drive home from a rare evening out, Alison collides with another car running a stop sign, and—just like that—her life turns upside down.

When she calls her husband from the police station, his accusatory tone reveals cracks in their relationship she’d never noticed were there. Now she notices everything. And she begins to realize that the life she carefully constructed for herself is as tenuous as a house of cards. Exquisitely written, powerful, and thrilling, Bird in Hand is a novel about love and friendship and betrayal, and about the secrets we tell ourselves and each other.

Killing Plato
by
Jake Needham

DescriptionJack Shepherd is a politically connected American lawyer until, on a whim largely inexplicable even to him, he trades the fierce scheming of Washington for the quiet life in Bangkok. Everything goes pretty well for Shepherd in Thailand, at least it does until the day he walks into a bar on the jet-set island of Phuket and finds the world's most famous fugitive waiting for him.

The Coming Tsunami
by
Mike Penny

DescriptionLike many offspring, Paul Giessen and Anna May Noble, are drawn back into decisions regarding their respective elderly parents in their later years. Long ago they were lovers and expected to wed but – inexplicably – split up instead. For over three decades thereafter only a deep and seething hatred for each other remains.

Partially because of a troubled father-son relationship, Paul Giessen believes his father, Tim, should be immediately dispatched to a nursing home upon learning he has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. His mother Wanda disagrees, believing such action premature and so she cares for Tim at home. In the months that follow, Wanda’s chronic heart condition deteriorates and surgery becomes a necessity.

The Granite Heart
by
Alan Black

DescriptionIn the Ozarks in 1920 Susanne Harbowe is shamefully and suddenly ripped from her life as a schoolteacher. She did nothing wrong that justified being fired from her job, evicted from her home and shunned by people she thought were friends. In desperation she joins forces with her young friend, LillieBeth Hazkit.

Susanne and LillieBeth track down the men responsible for ruining Susanne’s life. While she struggles to keep up with her friend’s youthful spirit and undaunting courage she wonders if she will end up in a brothel with nowhere else to go. LillieBeth’s audacity and determination lend strength to Susanne as she seeks to either reclaim her old life or build a new one. But first, they must bring the men who hurt her to justice.

Teodor Flonta

DescriptionIn 1946 ominous clouds are gathering on the narrow horizon of Lupoaia (Valley of the Wolves), a little village in Transylvania, where traditions, impregnated with prejudice and superstition, have endured over many generations. The Second World War is over but the lives of the villagers are thrown into turmoil with the imposition of drastic, senseless changes by a new regime, intent on creating a new man for a new society.

Cheating to Survive
by
Christine Ardigo

DescriptionTo her three daughters, Heather is a fun-loving, silly mom. Her co-workers at Norlyn Plains Hospital think she has it all, including a handsome lawyer husband. But when a flirtatious new doctor chooses Heather to spend his down time with, he reminds her of the man she regrettably gave up so many years before. Each interaction breathes new life into her and she gives in to the doctor’s seductions, threatening her fifteen year marriage. Her co-workers Victoria and Catherine, are stunned by her actions, but when they see the positive transformation in Heather, and question their own crumbling marriages, they wonder if she has the right idea. Can cheating on their husbands bring the three of them happiness? Or will they be destroyed by the consequences?
