It's All About to Fall. . .

While the cool air's reminder that Summer is behind us, we're about to heat up the Fall season with these 'coming soon' great reads!  Enjoy. . .Oh, and before we forget, next weekend we'll be hosting the AAMBC Authors, so you don't want to miss that.  Happy Reading!


After convincing a Texas oil family (most of them, anyway) that she’s their long-lost Sable Dominion, who vanished as a child, Mink LaRue takes her sexy bod and sheisty brain on a whirlwind trip to the old ‘hood to show off her sparklies—and pay back the gangsta she stole from before she left. But Texas-sized trouble is heading Mink’s way: Barron Dominion, Sable’s brother, was never bamboozled by Mink—and now he sees his chance to seize the family fortune for himself. Then, suddenly, both Mink and Barron are thrown for a loop. Seems there’s a Philly girl named Dy-Nasty whose DNA results match up perfectly with the long-lost Sable’s. And she’s heading down to Dallas for her payoff. So…who’s the sexiest little liar of them all?
A chilling video kicks off the action in The Bone Bed, the new page-turner in Patricia Cornwell’s bestselling series involving Dr. Kay Scarpetta, Director of the Cambridge Forensic Center—and Kay doesn’t know what to make of it. Why would someone send her footage of an obscure dinosaur bone bed in Alberta of all places? Then Kay recalls hearing of the disappearance of paleontologist Dr. Emma Shubert…

Kay doesn’t make a connection to the missing scientist when she’s called to testify in the trial of obscenely wealthy Channing Lott, accused of murdering his wife—despite the absence of a body. Only when a third vanished woman is recovered from Boston Harbor are trace pieces of evidence discovered that hint at a bizarre link to all three incidents.

Usually Scarpetta can depend on investigator Pete Marino and her niece Lucy, a computer expert, to have her back, but both are distracted, as is her husband, FBI hotshot Benton Wesley, whom Kay suspects of having an affair with an attractive new colleague. Which means she’s on her own. And with questions piling up as fast as the bodies, Kay knows only one thing for sure: this cunning killer is enormously powerful…and he’s coming after her.


Angel Jacobs has a stunning face and a petite, drop-dead body. She has two jobs and an apartment in a pricey Chicago neighborhood. She has a sister with Down’s syndrome, a mother with cancer and a daughter she hasn’t seen in years. She has bipolar disorder, hallucinations and short-term memory loss. She has hot nights with one handsome man after another, but she doesn’t have a lot of second dates—because the men she sleeps with always wind up dead. Does it have anything to do with the child her baby daddy won’t let her see?

Angel is distressed by the rash of murders in her neighborhood, yet she doesn’t quite connect them to her increasingly bloody home…but eventually, the police do. Branded a serial killer, Angel goes on the run.



Witty, creepy and compulsively readable, R.L. Stine defined horror for a generation with his iconic Goosebumps series, but now he ventures back into more grown-up territory with a terrifying new novel.

Travel writer Lea Sutter finds herself on a small island off the coast of South Carolina during a merciless hurricane. Barely escaping with her life, Lea discovers orphaned twin boys and impulsively decides to adopt them. The boys, Samuel and Daniel, seem amiable and grateful, but soon dark things start happening and all signs point to the orphans being more sinister than sweet.

For the millions of readers who grew up on Goosebumps, and for every fan of deviously inventive horror, this is a must-read from a beloved master of the genre.

Gritty, compassionate sagas of life on the D.C. streets have earned Kia DuPree a loyal readership as well as critical raves. Her latest novel, Shattered, traces the drama-filled journey of a teenager named KiKi—from the frying pan straight into the fire.

KiKi was only eight years old when her widowed, legally deaf mother lost custody of her. Growing up in foster care was hard enough, but life only got worse when KiKi ran away with her friend, Nausy, at the age of twelve. Naïve to the ways of the streets, the two girls got suckered in by a pedophile named Dizzle, who held them captive and forced them into a shocking existence that made them grow up all too fast.

When a neighbor’s intervention sets the girls free, KiKi’s life should be on the upswing. But she’s been through too much to go back to her old life, and despite the help of caring friends, she’s unprepared for life on her own. Desperate for money, and all too accustomed to hustling, she falls in with a “businessman” named Nut and her reckless decisions send her spiraling out of control.

But KiKi has more inner strength than anyone—including KiKi—knew, and she’s going to fight fiercely to get her life back together.
