The Inquisitor's Key
Jefferson BassI loved the dual time element to the mystery of the bones found in Avignon. The examination of the Shroud of Turin from a forensic anthropologist's point of view was fascinating and made me take a long look at it again. Even if you've never read any of the Body Farm books but enjoy historical mysteries, you will enjoy this great read. (Lisa)
Kathryn HarveyGreat story of a wronged woman and the lengths she'll go to get revenge. There's a touch of spice that makes this story even better! Well written and fast paced makes this a terrific beach read! (Lisa)
Only Time Will Tell
Jeffrey ArcherI haven't read an Archer book in years and he is still a wonderful story teller. This is the first in the series "The Clifton Chronicles," a multi-generational family saga with great characters. The second, "Sins of the Father" is also in paperback. A light read, but fun. (Sue)
The Secret Crown
Chris KuzneskiFast paced thriller about Bavaria's King Ludwig II, his mysterious death and the legend of his lost treasure. An adventure blending fascinating history and pulse-pounding action that is also smart, funny and impossible to put down! One of my favorite books from Chris Kuzneski! (Lisa)
Harlan CobenA typical Coben page-turner.... you never know what's going to happen next!
Set in Atlantic City, though not the casinos, this is a fun and easy read. (Sue)
J. Courtney SullivanHumorous and engaging story about family and relationships. (Ann)

The Widow's War
Sally GunningIn an 18th-century Cape Cod whaling village, a woman fiercely struggles to maintain her independence after the death of her husband. Part mystery, part love story - a captivating work of historical fiction. First in a series. (Laura)
30 Pieces of Silver
Carolyn McCrayCarolyn McCray created such wonderful characters that I not only cheered on the good guys but I also mourned the bad guys after reading the final twist in this serpentine tale of bones, faith and archeology. Indiana Jones would have fit right in with these guys! As to the controversial claim about this book well... I won't spoil it for you but I can honestly say I didn't see it coming and I read a lot of historical thrillers. I highly recommend this book! (Lisa)
Carolyn McCrayDr. Rebecca Monroe and her Special Forces Team are hot on the trail of the Ten Commandments in this sequel to "30 Pieces of Silver." It's a roller coaster ride of thrills in this race against time to find not only the historic relic but to stop terrorists from releasing a deadly plague upon the world. (Lisa)
