Adult Fiction

Moon Struck by Lauren Dane.

Three years ago, Katie Faith Grady left Diablo Lake, heartbroken and humiliated by a man who didn't deserve her in the first place. Her return--to help run her family's soda fountain while her dad recovers from a heart attack--awakens the powerful magic that is her birthright. It also puts her directly in the path of a certain werewolf she's never been able to forget.

 

The Grave Singer by Victor Methos.

"After a traumatic injury took him off the job, prosecutor Solomon Shepard is back to work, teaming up with Sheriff Billie Gray to hunt down Utah's most dangerous criminals. Shepard has spent years away from crime scenes and courtrooms, but one of those criminals still holds a grudge. Alonso Hafeez is out of prison after eleven years, and he's determined to prove that Shepard tried him for a crime he didn't commit. And he's got something special planned: kidnapping Shepard and forcing him to revisit Hafeez's case in an elaborately staged retrial. As Hafeez descends further into delusion, Shepard's only choice is to play along with the ex-con's rapidly deteriorating sense of reality. Meanwhile, Sheriff Gray is working herself to the breaking point as she races to find them before Hafeez's plans take a deadly turn. With Hafeez playing judge and jury, hell-bent on proving his innocence, Shepard will be the only guilty party left to execute."-- Provided by publisher.

 

Knitmare on Beech Street by Peggy Ehrhart.

"When Pamela, Bettina, and their friends show up at the Voorhees House to greet its new owner, they're met with a most unwelcome sight: a dead body on the kitchen floor. Tassie Hunt just inherited the old Victorian, which had been occupied by a reclusive widow for many years and had a reputation for being haunted. But Tassie would have been unlikely to be spooked since her career involved debunking such paranormal phenomena. Her demise sets off a new flurry of gossip and ghostly speculation in the New Jersey town, of course-and it's tempting to think spirits were indeed involved considering there's zero evidence so far of foul play. A nosy neighbor reports strange lights and sounds, and a man obsessed with the Victorian era starts photographing the place from the street. But it won't take long before Pamela and Bettina are moving in on a killer . . ."-- Provided by publisher.
