New Releases 1.22.13
It’s Tuesday, which means new books are hitting the shelves (or your e-reader)! Here are some of the titles we’re most excited about:
The #1 New York Times bestselling author is back with a riveting suspense tale–and this time it’s personal. After his partner Stephanie is killed in a shocking assault, LAPD cop Scott James is filled with rage. Teaming up with Maggie, a German shepherd who did three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, they set out on a dangerous mission to find the men responsible for Stephanie’s murder–no matter what the cost.
As city girls, we certainly know our way around a good bar, so we couldn’t resist the premise of Schaap’s memoir. From frequenting bars at a young age and years spent bartending, Schaap has come to love the camaraderie that exists among the regulars. Now she shares her unending quest for the perfect local haunt, and takes us on a journey that promises to be both fun and quirky, including stops at a dive bar outside L.A., small-town New England taverns and a Dublin pub full of poets. Travel and drinks? Sounds like the perfect combo!
Don’t miss this first novel in a new adventure series from New York Times bestselling author Cindy Gerard. Eva Salinas is a beautiful rogue operative on the tail of Mike Brown, a hard living hero with secrets of his own. Eva lures Mike from Peru all the way to Idaho to hunt for a cold-blooded traitor behind a fatal military operation that haunts them both.
The premise of this new novel sounds utterly intriguing–not quite spy, not quite thriller, not quite romance–but totally original. What makes the perfect assassin? People who are Nobody. No one notices them, they’re easily forgotten. The Institute trains them when they’re young. But an untrained Nobody must be eliminated. Sixteen-year-old Claire is one such Nobody. Nix is sent to handle the problem. Yet from the moment he sees her, he can’t make the hit. Can two invisible people remain hidden forever?
The frustrations of dealing with health insurance companies, doctors and medical claim forms, lead widowed Cassie Jones to come up with a most unorthodox solution in this delightful, funny tale from Haywood Smith. To pay for her expensive medications and treatments, Cassie decides she must remarry for health coverage. What follows is a series of hilarious online dates and set-ups that leaves Cassie desperate–until her savior comes in the most unlikely of places.
