FICTION
Buffalo Bill’s Dead Now – Margaret Coel
After more than 120 years, the regalia worn by Chief Black Heart in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show were supposed to be returned to his people. But the cartons containing the relics were empty when they arrived at the Arapaho Museum. Rancher and Indian artifact collector Trevor Pratt had them shipped from Germany and believes thieves must have stolen them en route. Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden and Father John O’Malley suspect Trevor knows more about the theft than he’s telling — a suspicion that’s confirmed when he is found murdered in his own home. To find the killer, they must first uncover the truth about a blood feud between two Arapaho families — and the original theft of Black Heart’s possessions dating back more than a century.

Shunning Sarah – Julie Kramer
Minneapolis’s star investigative reporter Riley Spartz is constantly in search of her next TV sweeps piece. When she hears that a young boy is trapped at the bottom of a sinkhole, she smells ratings. Little does she know just how big the story will be — not only does it involve a tragic murder, but the local Amish community as well. Once Riley is on the case, though, she sees that solving it will be anything but easy. When Riley finds a clue the cops have missed, she uncovers a dark web of fraud and deception in the community — driven by motives as old as the Bible: sex and money. Riley will stop at nothing to bring the killer to justice, and she is determined to do so before anyone — including herself — becomes the next target.

Zoo – James Patterson & Michael Ledwidge
All over the world, brutal attacks by animals are crippling entire cities. Jackson Oz, a young biologist, watches the escalating events with an increasing sense of dread. When he witnesses a coordinated lion ambush in Africa, the enormity of the violence ahead becomes terrifyingly clear. With the help of ecologist Chloe Tousignant, Oz races to warn world leaders before it’s too late. The attacks are growing in ferocity, cunning, and planning, and soon there will be no place left for humans to hide.

Return To Willow Lake — Susan Wiggs
Sonnet Romano’s life is almost perfect. She has the ideal career, the ideal boyfriend, and has just been offered a prestigious fellowship. There’s nothing more a woman wants—except maybe a baby…brother? When Sonnet finds out her mother is unexpectedly expecting, and that the pregnancy is high risk, she puts everything on hold—the job, the fellowship, the boyfriend—and heads to Avalon. Once her mom is out of danger, Sonnet intends to pick up her life where she left off. But when her mother receives a devastating diagnosis, Sonnet must decide what really matters in life, even if that means staying in Avalon and taking a job that forces her to work alongside her biggest, and maybe her sweetest, mistake—award-winning filmmaker Zach Alger. So Sonnet embarks on a summer of laughter and tears, of old dreams and new possibilities, and of finding the home of her heart.

This is a zany collection of zingers, totally true tales, and silly senior humor that will have you feeling better in no time. Sure, life can seem sort of grim sometimes, and we can remember a more joyful time in the past. But consider this: Kids laugh an average 150 times a day but adults only about 10 times a day!

Studies show that he who laughs, lasts and lasts!
