A Case of Imagination by Jane TeshA Case of Imagination by Jane Tesh

Madeline “Mac” Maclin, the former Miss Parkland beauty pageant winner, has become a struggling P.I. and when her eccentric friend Jerry Fariweather inherits a spooky house in Celosia, Mac jumps at the chance to check it out with him. It’s not long until Mac finds herself knee deep in cases in this small town from a beauty pageant being sabotaged, to a ghostly haunting to the murder of a young woman, all in a day’s work. This playful first novel in Tesh’s cozy new series introducing Mac and her interesting and at times crazy friend Jerry who wants to turn his new inheritance into a Haunted B & B and believes he can communicate with the dead. Either way Max and Jerry are here to stay as they settle into the little town of Celosia to solve a few mysteries and raise a few spirits. Mac has her hands full from zero cases to a town full of them along with Jerry and his psychic shenanigans. A Case of Imagination is the first in this series followed by A Hard Bargain and A Little Learning; Tesh’s series is an enjoyable read for those who like a little cozy with their mystery.

Heartbreaker by Julie GarwoodHeartbreaker by Julie Garwood

In the still shadows of the confessional, the penitent kneels and makes a bone-chilling disclosure: “Bless me father, for I will sin….” Slowly, tauntingly, the man describes his murderous past — how he stalked his victim, worked his way into her life, and then took that life in a violent rage — and his plan to kill again. Only this time, he has raised the stakes in his twisted game, daring authorities to catch him if they can. This time, he has revealed the name of his next intended victim. “I’m a heartbreaker. And I do so love a challenge….” Agent Nick Buchanan has come face-to-face with society’s worst monsters and depraved minds in his work for one of the FBI’s most elite units. He’s about to take a much needed vacation from his high-stress job when he’s called on to stop the killer who has mockingly confessed to the deadly crime he’s to commit. Nick can’t refuse –for this time the threat has hit close to home. The intended victim is his best friend’s sister. Soon he is caught up in an intricate chase with one of the most devious psychopaths of his career — in a case that suddenly, unexpectedly, pulls him in like no other.

When You Need a Lift, but Don’t Want to Eat Chocolate, Pay a Shrink, or Drink a Bottle of Gin by Joy BeharWhen You Need a Lift, but Don’t Want to Eat Chocolate, Pay a Shrink, or Drink a Bottle of Gin by Joy Behar

Life is full of ups and downs. And while keeping your chin up may hide a double chin, it won’t improve your mood. Looking on the bright side will make you squint, which will lead to crow’s feet, and there is nothing cheerful about crow’s feet. Listen, if you’re feeling down, it’s going to take a lot more to set things right than insipid platitudes about a cloud with a silver lining. (What is that anyway? Acid rain, or what?) In When You Need a Lift , comedienne Joy Behar and a host of her friends share the simple, silly, profound, and personal things they turn to for comfort when life gets hard. For Joy, it’s her sense of humor and handbags. Not surprisingly, music legend Burt Bacharach turns to songwriting and performing. Kaye Ballard indulges with a big bowl of pasta. Beau Bridges counts his blessings. Former First Lady Barbara Bush finds solace in the work of Jane Austen. Tony Danza plays the ukulele. Larry King recommends laughter–tell a joke, read a funny book; every time you laugh, a little sadness slips away. And that’s some advice you can actually use.

The Chase by Janet Evanovich and Lee GoldbergThe Chase by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg

Internationally renowned thief and con artist Nicolas Fox is famous for running elaborate and daring scams. His greatest con of all: convincing the FBI to team him up with the only person who has ever caught him, and the only woman to ever capture his attention, Special Agent Kate O’Hare. Together they’ll go undercover to swindle and catch the world’s most wanted–and untouchable—criminals. Their newest target is Carter Grove, a former White House chief of staff and the ruthless leader of a private security agency. Grove has stolen a rare Chinese artifact from the Smithsonian, a crime that will torpedo U.S. relations with China if it ever becomes public. Nick and Kate must work under the radar–and against the clock–to devise a plan to steal the piece back. Confronting Grove’s elite assassins, Nick and Kate rely on the skills of their ragtag crew, including a flamboyant actor, a Geek Squad techie, and a band of AARP-card-carrying mercenaries led by none other than Kate’s dad. A daring heist and a deadly chase lead Nick and Kate from Washington, D.C., to Shanghai, from the highlands of Scotland to the underbelly of Montreal. But it’ll take more than death threats, trained henchmen, sleepless nights, and the fate of a dynasty’s priceless heirloom to outsmart Fox and O’Hare.

The Big New Yorker Book of Cats by Anthony LaneThe Big New Yorker Book of Cats by Anthony Lane
