I’m happy to see things are finally cooling off so I can break out the blankets and hoodies. A lovely way to spend a cool autumn afternoon is with a book and a picnic under a tall tree in the gentle sunlight. And with the falling leaves come suspense, family secrets, and enough action in the September Bookcase Club to get your heart racing. Check it out:
By the #1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Sandra Brown, this novel follows the trouble-filled adventure of Jordan Bennet, sister to an small-time criminal who has stolen a lot of money from a big-time crime boss you don’t want to mess with. When they can’t find her brother, the gang sends two hitmen after Jordan instead. Things don’t go exactly as planned when one of the hitmen decides to kidnap her, hoping to get his hands on the millions instead. On the run together, from both the notorious criminal and the feds, they must rely on each other in order to survive.
“Miles from civilization and surrounded by swampland, the two play each other against their common enemies, [Jordan’s] only chance of survival is to outwit Shaw, but it soon becomes clear to him that [Jordan] isn’t entirely trustworthy either. Was she in on her brother’s scam, or is she an innocent pawn in a deadly vendetta?”

The House of Secrets
A duel effort between two New York Times bestselling authors brings us this amazing adventure. Brad Meltzer and Tod Goldberg set the scene when Hazel Nash wakes up with no memory of her past. She’s told that she was in a car crash, which killed her father and brother. Then the FBI shows up asking questions about her father and about a priceless book that belongs to Benedict Arnold. Back at her house, Hazel finds evidence of a life that doesn’t seem to belong to her – guns of all kinds and scars all over her body from fights she’s been in. Struggling to reconcile herself to the woman she was but doesn’t remember, Hazel digs into her father’s past to learn to truth – about him, about herself, and about their secrets.
“A secret worth killing for. A woman with no past. An act of treason that changed America.”

“Highly satisfying…a conspiracy-laden spy novel that’s at its best when it’s gleefully cutting the legs out from the genre’s tropes.” – Publishers Weekly
