New Releases – Week of July 13
It’s new book Tuesday! On the list this week are two pulse-pounding page-turners (one that is—literally—out of this world).
Can all of Ava’s dreams really be coming true in one big swoop? Lonely and childless when she meets Mitchell Carson and his adorable son, Ava loves her new life as a wife and mother. But soon her new, seemingly perfect reality begins to fall apart. Mitchell is no longer the charming man who swept her off her feet. He’s controlling, manipulative, vengeful and violent. In an attempt to protect her children and herself, Ava teams up with attorney Graham Thomas to see what skeletons Mitchell has hiding in his past. But even the truth might not be able to set Ava—and her kids—free from a psychopath….
We all love to daydream, right? For Zack Lightman, a diet of science fiction novels and endless videogames has left him longing for another world filled with adventure and excitement. A world lived in space, perhaps. Zach doesn’t think there is any harm in spending his life daydreaming. But when he sees the flying saucer and alien spaceship, can he be losing his mind? The Armada, just like the one from his video game, protects earth from aliens—and Zack knows it’s very real. Can Zack and his fellow games save the planet before it’s too late? Or is there more to this story? Part sci-fi adventure, part coming-of-age tale, Armada is a fun ride where video games come to life.
