Worthy Opponents by Danielle Steel – Spencer Brooke always knew she was destined to be CEO of her grandfather’s business – the most respected and luxurious department store in New York City. Brooke’s has been at the center of every happy memory she has, but it hasn’t been an easy journey. Seven years after her father’s death, her life is very different from the days when she walked through the store with her grandfather as a young girl. She may be the owner of Brooke’s, but she’s also now a divorced single mother of twin boys. And with the ever-evolving landscape of the fashion industry comes new challenges for Spencer and the legacy she’s inherited.

The Housemaid by Freida McFadden – “Welcome to the family,” Nina Winchester says as I shake her elegant, manicured hand. I smile politely, gazing around the marble hallway. Working here is my last chance to start fresh. I can pretend to be whoever I like. But I’ll soon learn that the Winchesters’ secrets are far more dangerous than my own…

Deaf Row by Ron Franscell – Retired from a big-city homicide beat to a small Colorado mountain town, ex-detective Woodrow “Mountain” Bell yearns only to fade away. He’s failed in so many ways as a father, a husband, friend and cop that it might be too late for a meaningful life. When he stumbles across a long-forgotten, unsolved child murder, his first impulse is to let it lie…but he can’t. He’s drawn into the macabre mystery when he realizes the killer might still be near. Without help from ambivalent local cops, Bell must overcome the obstacles of time, age and a lack of police resources by calling upon the unique skills of the end-of-the-road codgers he meets for coffee every morning – a club of old guys who call themselves Deaf Row. Soon, this motley crew finds itself on a collision course with a serial butcher.

Crofter: A Wyoming Homestead Manual and Radical Memoir, Rooted in Place by Renee Carrier – A contemporary country woman in Wyoming pairs a working homestead manual with memories of an uncommon upbringing, during and after Cold War America. As an aging homesteader in rural Wyoming, Carrier recalls an oft-times fascinating and/or tough Air Force family childhood, to land, three-point, at a whole-Earth philosophy. In combining a Wyoming homesteading manual with memoir, the author has forged a tool for living a tempered life.

All My Knotted-Up Life by Beth Moore – All My Knotted-Up Life is told with surprising candor about some of the personal heartbreaks and behind-the-scenes challenges that have marked Beth’s life. But beyond that, it’s a beautifully crafted portrait of resilience and survival, a poignant reminder of God’s enduring faithfulness, and proof positive that if we ever truly took the time to hear people’s full stories...we’d all walk around slack-jawed.
