Adult Fiction

The Ball at Versailles by Danielle Steel.

It's the summer of 1959 and the Palace of Versailles is hosting an event that will make history. It is an exclusive dusk-to-dawn ball in which a select group of American and French debutantes will be presented to international society and royalty. Four young women, all with something to prove, receive what some see as the invitation of a lifetime. Amelia Alexander, who hopes to eventually attend law school, hesitates to participate in what she sees as an archaic and privileged tradition. But her indomitable widowed mother, Jane, who's struggled financially and sacrificed for a career, encourages her to attend. Jane would do anything for Amelia to have the chance at a happily ever after. Felicity Smith is equally uncertain about the ball. Although her family is prominent in the Dallas social scene, Felicity prefers to keep to herself, avoiding the older sister who torments her. But to get out of her sister's shadow, Felicity decides to accept. If it's a success, the tables will have turned at last. For Caroline Taylor, the beautiful ingénue and daughter of Hollywood legends, the ball is an irresistible opportunity. But an unexpected heartbreak just before she leaves for France gets things off to a bad start. Then there's Samantha Walker, an art history major with an overprotective father. Her excitement about the invitation is overshadowed by the emotional and physical effects of a past tragedy that still haunts her.  For all these young women, Paris and one transcendent night will change their lives forever. 

 

A Good Day to Pie by Misha Popp.

Daisy bakes a little murder into every pie she creates, and she and her dog, Zoe, deliver them to the town's worst cads. Now, Daisy's entered a televised, elimination-style competition and has a shot at $100k in prize money--but she still has a murder pie to deliver between filming. In a completely unexpected turn of events, she discovers that her intended victim is one of the competition judges, and he turns up dead before the pie even arrives. Now, Daisy has to solve the murder--even if it means working a bit of magic--before someone calls foul play and exposes her murderous secret.

 

Old Cowboys Never Die by William W Johnstone & J. A. Johnstone.

After thirty hard years of chasing stampedes into storms and pushing herds of half-crazy cows across the plains, longtime buddies and cattle drivers Casey Tubbs and Eli Doolin are ready to hang up their spurs. But when they get to Abilene with their final delivery of two thousand cows, the company lawyer has skipped town with their crew's entire wages. That means there's just one last job Eli and Casey will have to do...Steal it back. Sure, pulling off a robbery is a new challenge for these old boys. But they've learned a lot of tricks over the years --and they're one hell of a team. Between the two of them, they devise a scheme to hold up the lawyer on the noon train and deliver the money to the men who earned it. Except after pulling off the perfect crime--and getting away with it--an honest, peaceful retirement stops sounding so good. Casey and Eli start thinking they may have missed their calling in life. This could be the start of a whole new career . . . as outlaws.

We Are Not Alone by Marc Hartzman.

After decades of cover-ups and denials, in a June 2021 report, the US government finally admitted what many people already knew: yes, UFOs are real, and no, we don't know what (or who) they are.

 

This is Personal by Brennan Dunn.

Most companies send "one-size-fits-all" communication to everyone in their audience, leading to low engagement on their social media channels and emails left unread in their customers' inboxes because it's unclear to recipients how this information helps them. But all businesses, from banks to local butchers, depend on their latest promotions and product announcements reaching and personally resonating with their customers. This Is Personal helps companies better understand the individual needs and identities of their audience, no matter the size, enabling businesses to send better, more relevant emails that generate more opens, more clicks, and, ultimately, more sales.
