A new batch of MP3 CD’s! Again, please claim by commenting. If you don’t claim by the end of next Monday, however, you may have to wait until the end of the month due to my absence much of this month.
Davidson, MaryJanice. Undead and Unstable.
Summary: Betsy Taylor is determined to change the future for herself and her loved ones, but her actions could have life-shattering repercussions. That’s to be expected when a friend returns from the dead, her sister happens to be the Antichrist, and her mother is the devil.
De la Cruz, Melissa. Serpent’s Kiss.
Summary: In the small town of North Hampton, the Beauchamp family witches pull together to discover the serpent within their midst and the culprit behind their brother Freddie’s imprisonment.
Frank, Dorothy Benton. Porch Lights (Current NYT bestseller).
Summary: When Jimmy McMullen, a fireman with the NYFD, is killed in the line of duty, his wife, Jackie, and ten-year-old son, Charlie, are devastated. Charlie idolized his dad, and now the outgoing, curious boy has become quiet and reserved. Trusting in the healing power of family, Jackie decides to return to her childhood home on Sullivans Island. Crossing the bridge from the mainland, Jackie and Charlie enter a world full of wonder and magic–lush green and chocolate grasslands and dazzling red, orange, and magenta evening skies; the heady pungency of Lowcountry Pluff mud and fresh seafood on the grill; bare toes snuggled in warm sand and palmetto fronds swaying in gentle ocean winds.
Kane, Andrea. The Line Between Here and Gone.
Summary: “Each day is a struggle for Amanda Gleason’s newborn son as he battles a rare immune deficiency. Justin’s best chance for a cure lies with his father, who was brutally murdered before Amanda even realized she carried his child. Or was he? One emailed photo changes everything, planting a seed of doubt that Amanda latches on to for dear life: a recent photo of a man who looks exactly like Paul. Could Justin’s father be alive? The mother in her is desperate to find out. But tracking down a ghost when every second counts is not for amateurs. Forensic Instincts is the one team up for the challenge. A behaviorist. A former navy SEAL. A techno-wizard. An intuitive. A retired FBI agent. A human-scent-evidence dog. Together they achieve the impossible, pushing ethical and legal boundaries whenever the ends justify the means. The manhunt is on for the elusive father. Yet the further FI digs into his past, the more questions are raised about whether the man Amanda fell in love with ever really existed at all. Dark secrets. Carefully crafted lies. From the congressional halls of Washington, D.C., to exclusive Hamptons manors, there are ruthless people who would stop at nothing to make Forensic Instincts forget about the man Amanda desperately needs to find.”–Dust jacket.
McCall Smith, Alexander. A Conspiracy of Friends.
Summary: “It’s back to Corduroy Mansions–the slightly dilapidated but well-lived-in mansion block in London’s hip Pimlico neighborhood–for the third installment in Alexander McCall Smith’s newest popular series. There’s never a dull moment for the residents of Corduroy Mansions: Berthea Snark is still at work on her scathing biography of the only loathsome Liberal Democrat member of Parliament–her own son, Oedipus; literary agents Rupert Porter and Barbara Ragg are still battling each other for first crack at the manuscript of Autobiography of a Yeti; fine-arts graduate Caroline Jarvis is busy blurring the line between friendship and romance; and William French is still worrying that his son, Eddie, may never leave home, even though Eddie’s got a new wealthy girlfriend. But uppermost on everyone’s mind is Freddie de la Hay–William’s faithful terrier (and without a doubt the only dog clever enough to have been recruited by MI6)–who has disappeared while on a mystery tour around the Suffolk countryside”– Provided by publisher.
Rollins, James. Bloodline.
Summary: A yacht bearing a young American couple is attacked by Somali pirates, leading to bloodshed and the violent kidnapping of the pregnant woman on board. To aid in her rescue from the lawless and war-torn jungles of coastal Africa, Sigma Force enlists the aid of a unique search team.
