Mad About You

by Kate Perry

Julie Miller is driven by one thing, and she wants it now: a trophy. Not just any trophy, the First Prize Trophy for the San Francisco Flower Competition.

She may not have the stature and training of the other competitors, but this is her year. She’s worked for months on an award-winning design, and she’s taking no prisoners. But when a sexy man walks right up to her and kisses the breath out of her, she wonders if there’s a spark inside for more than just rose petals.

Scott Wright’s grandfather always told him that he’d know when he met his true love: by her kiss. He’s kissed a lot of women, most of whom wanted him for his money and status–until Julie. Only she’s so focused on winning her trophy that he’s afraid she’s going to miss the true prize: love.

Death On The Nile: Hercule Poirot Investigates

by Agatha Christie

The tranquillity of a cruise along the Nile was shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway had been shot through the head. She was young, stylish and beautiful. A girl who had everything . . . until she lost her life.

Hercule Poirot recalled an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: ‘I’d like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger.’ Yet in this exotic setting nothing was ever quite what it seemed.

How To Flirt With A Naked Werewolf

by Molly Harper

Northern Exposure

Even in Grundy, Alaska, it’s unusual to find a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his ankle on your porch. But when said guy turns into a wolf, recent southern transplant Mo Wenstein has no difficulty identifying the problem. Her surly neighbor Cooper Graham—who has been openly critical of Mo’s ability to adapt to life in Alaska—has trouble of his own. Werewolf trouble.

For Cooper, an Alpha in self-imposed exile from his dysfunctional pack, it’s love at first sniff when it comes to Mo. But Cooper has an even more pressing concern on his mind. Several people around Grundy have been the victims of wolf attacks, and since Cooper has no memory of what he gets up to while in werewolf form, he’s worried that he might be the violent canine in question.

If a wolf cries wolf, it makes sense to listen, yet Mo is convinced that Cooper is not the culprit. Except if he’s not responsible, then who is? And when a werewolf falls head over haunches in love with you, what are you supposed to do anyway? The rules of dating just got a whole lot more complicated. . . .

Grand View

by Steven Jay Griffel

At the heart of the story is forlorn David, the linchpin between Michael’s dying friendship and Richie’s growing fury. There is David’s pursuit of Andrea, the Ice Princess; and all the girls who pursue him in spite of—perhaps because of—his touching insecurities. There are mothers who pride and fathers who guide—even, in one case, from beyond the grave.

Against the intense feelings and ambitions of the families summering at Grand View is the colony itself: battling daunting odds to win a softball championship while fighting for its very life as new ownership threatens to destroy it. A love-crazy camp director; an evil handyman; a Nazi bastard; a fire-balling, Jesus-jawing evangelist are all part of the cast that helps to color this story both comic and tragic.
