THE FORTUNE HUNTER by Daisy Goodwin
A beautiful empress, a handsome horseman, and a bluestocking heiress form a passionate love triangle in this historical novel from the New York Times bestselling author of THE AMERICAN HEIRESS. “An enchanting, beautifully written page-turner.” — Publishers Weekly
THE DEAD WILL TELL by Linda Castillo
In Castillo’s latest electrifying Kate Burkholder mystery, the Amish town of Painter’s Mill is plagued by a series of murders made to look like suicides. “Castillo effectively combines an airtight plot with a revealingly complex look at what can happen when a fissure develops along the fault line separating an insular community from the secular world. Castillo shows again why the phrase 'gritty Amish mystery' is no oxymoron.” — Booklist
