14th: Make Something Good Today by Erin & Ben Napier
Make Something Good Today offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the struggles and triumphs of a couple that America has come to know and love for their easy humor, adoring relationship, and ability to utterly transform a place into something beautiful and personal. This is the poignant story of how Erin and Ben took a small, tight-knit town into their own hands (literally) and used ingenuity, community, and authenticity to rebuild a once-thriving American Main Street. And how, by combining Ben’s carpentry skills with Erin’s design eye, Home Town is making it clear to us all that small-town living can feel as big as you make it.
21st: Waiting for Eden by Elliot Ackerman
28th: Grand Slam Murders by R.J. Lee
After four bridge players are poisoned, newspaper reporter Wendy Winchester sets out to catch a killer who’s not playing with a full deck . . .
When the four wealthy widows who make up the venerable Rosalie Bridge Club never get up from their card table, this quiet Mississippi town has its first quadruple homicide. Who put cyanide in their sugar bowl? An aspiring member and kibitzer with the exclusive club, Wendy takes a personal interest in finding justice for the ladies.
She also has a professional motivation. A frustrated society columnist for the Rosalie Citizen, she’s ready to deal herself a better hand as an investigative reporter. This could be her big break. Plus, she has a card or two up her sleeve: her sometimes boyfriend is a detective and her dad is the local chief of police.
Partnering up with the men in her life, Wendy starts shuffling through suspects and turning over secrets long held close to the chest by the ladies. But when a wild card tries to take her out of the game, Wendy decides it’s time to up the ante before she’s the next one to go down . . .

4th: Congratulations, Who Are You Again? by Harrison Scott Key
This funny and wise new memoir from Harrison Scott Key, winner of the Thurber Prize for American Humor, will inspire laughter and hope for anyone who’s ever been possessed by a dream of what they want to be when they grow up.
11th: Whirlwind: A Frank Marsh Novel
A drone strike in Syria unleashes a chain of volatile events in the U.S. and Europe that embroils Hezbollah and Iranian death squads, the FBI and the White House. FBI agent Frank Marsh and NSC staffer Kathy Foster are thrust into the middle of an international terror plot that puts their lives and the lives of thousands in imminent danger.
In retaliation for the drone strike, terror cells are sent to the U.S to launch attacks. When a terrorist dies in an auto accident, FBI agent Frank Marsh discovers that an attack in the U.S. may be imminent. Based on vague clues, he and Kathy Foster try to figure out where the terrorists plan to attack and they try to prevent it. At first, sparks fly between Frank and Kathy because of an issue from their past. The investigation is also hampered by bureaucratic obstacles, turf battles among national security agencies and treachery. They become outcasts from their own organizations and no one will listen when they discover the possible target of a terror attack.
Frank discovers that someone in Washington, D.C. is providing information to the terror group. In Tehran, Marwan, the commander of an Iranian assassination unit, realizes Frank and Kathy are a threat to uncovering the traitor and he targets the couple for assassination. Gripping intrigue propels Frank, Kathy and Marwan to a final confrontation.
18th: Dark River Rising by Roger Johns
Baton Rouge Police Detective Wallace Hartman has had better days. With her long-time partner and mentor on medical leave and a personal life in shambles, she’s called to the scene of a particularly gruesome murder: the body of a known criminal has been found in a deserted warehouse, a snake sewn into his belly. Obvious signs of torture point to a cunning and cold-blooded killer who will stop at nothing to find what he’s looking for.
When Federal Agent Mason Cunningham arrives on the scene, Wallace expects a hostile takeover of the case. But when a scientist with ties to the victim goes missing from a government lab, she needs Mason’s federal connections as much as he needs her local insight, and the two form an uneasy partnership to solve a case that grows more complicated―and dangerous―by the minute.
Meanwhile, the killer lurks in the shadows with an agenda no one saw coming, and when Wallace and Mason threaten to get in the way they risk losing everything they hold dear. Including their lives.
