For generations the Burroughs clan has made their home on Bull Mountain in North Georgia, virtually untouched by the rule of law. To distance himself from his family’s criminal empire, Clayton takes the job of sheriff in a neighboring community. But when an ATF agent shows up at Clayton’s office with a plan to shut down the mountain, his hidden agenda will pit brother against brother, test loyalties, and even lead Clayton down a path to self-destruction.” The Forgotten Soldier by Brad Taylor (F TAY Log.9) “Pike Logan returns with his most dangerous and personal threat yet: a Taskforce Operator gone rogue.” Precious Gifts by Danielle Steel (F STE) “In two marriages, Paul Parker fathered a challenging son and three very different daughters. But he ultimately shrugged off the demands of marriage and parenting to pursue life as an international bon vivant. Now, his family has gathered together to read his will. He has made a very personal bequest to each of his children, carefully designed to help them achieve their own unique dreams and find true happiness. But for his ex-wife, Veronique, he leaves a gift that remained a mystery for their entire marriage, and she begins a search to discover its history and rightful owner.” Orhan’s Inheritance by Aline Ohanesian (F OHA) “When Orhan’s brilliant and eccentric grandfather—a man who built a dynasty out of making kilim rugs—is found dead, submerged in a vat of dye, Orhan inherits the decades-old business. But his grandfather’s will raises more questions than answers.” Until the Dawn by Elizabeth Camden (F CAM) “A volunteer for the newly established Weather Bureau, Sophie van Riijn needs access Dierenpark, an abandoned mansion, to report the most accurate readings. Quentin Vandermark intends to put an end to the shadowy rumors about the property that has brought nothing but trouble upon his family. Ready to tear down the mansion, he is furious to discover a local woman has been trespassing on his land. Instantly at odds, Quentin and Sophie find common ground when she is the only one who can reach his troubled son.” Wedded to War by Jocelyn Green (F GRE Civ.1) “It’s April 1861, and the Union Army’s Medical Department is a disaster, completely unprepared for the magnitude of war.
