In Serpent, Clive Cussler introduced a hero for the new millennium in Kurt Austin, the leader of NUMA's Special Assignments Team. In previous encounters, Austin and his colleague Joe Zavala have battled eco-extortionists and mad empire builders-but they have never faced a menace like the one before them now.
In his first phenomenal best-seller, EVERYTHING I NEED TO KNOW I LEARNED IN KINDERGARTEN, Robert Fulghum reminded readers everywhere of some plain and still-true truths. Now, picking up where he left off, Fulghum turns our eyes to show-and-tell, weddings, his own ten commandments, and more insightful and unique observations on what our world is and was....

Into The Fire By Anne Stuart
Jamie Kincaid knows that she can't move on with her life until she has answers. And she's walking straight into the fire to find them. A year ago Jamie learned that her beloved cousin, Nate, had been killed. Beaten to death in what police suspect was a drug deal gone wrong, he was found by his childhood friend Dillon Gaynor. Dillon had always been the baddest of the bad boys, leading Nate astray, about Nate's death. He's not about to volunteer any information, and Jaime's only choice is to head to the Wisconsin town where he lives to find the answers for herself. Jamie shows up unannounced on Dillon's doorstep, only to find that Dillon is as dangerous and seductive as she remembers. But despite his silky hostility, she discovers that she can't leave. Things start disappearing, strange accidents begin to happen and Jamie doesn't know whether Dillon is trying to seduce her or scare her away. And if she gives in to his predatory games, will she lose her soul? Or her life? But something else -- something evil and threatening -- is going on. And Dillon knows more that he's saying. Is he the one behind the strange threats. . . or is he Jamie's only chance for survival?

Mine is Women in the Wind. Can't remember the author right now and I am feeling lazy. It's on my bookshelf. Got it at an FOL sale. It's one of those epic kind of tales. Loved it. It's made me sad it's collecting dust on my PBS bookshelf. Yeah it's an old book and mine is an ex-library copy, but sooo good.
Okay I went and got it. It's by Margaret Ritter. Here is the summary
Margaret Ritter's vibrant and sweeping novel chronicles the uncertain fortunes of an American family during an era of change.
Reanna MacClaren, strong-willed and adventurous, arrives in the Indian Territory as the bride of a dashing rancer who presides over a vast domain. SHe soon discovers that her husband, ANdrew, is not the heroic figure he seemed, and their emotionally charged relationship turns to violent mutual enmity. But Reanna is befriended by Andrew's powerful adoptive mother, Miss Jane Beauvaise, an Indian tribal matriarch, and learns that only the daring, the resourceful and the passionate can defy the unpredictable wiolence of the elements and the treacherous currents of history to creat a new life.
Over several tumultuos decades Reanna witnesses the end of an Indian nation and the coming of statehood, participates in the discovery of oil on her land, and fights to control the destiny of her new-found empire.

A great movie, but yet an even better book...with recipes! Yes, this is an older book, but one of those that will never go out of style. Takes place in old Mexico, and is full of sweet, heartbreaking love stories, and recipes I swore I would always try but just never did. (No 30 minute meals, they!) The heroine was born amidst food and has grown to be a chef with magic--whatever emotions she is feeling as she prepares, goes into the food, and passes to the people eating it. A little hardcover in fine shape...you will be so glad you read it!
Well, when I searched for "air" on my shelf it returned Godzilla. Which confuses me a bit, but also amuses me. :)
More accurately, I found one that's stretching it just a bit:
Death Of The River Master (Texana Jones) http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9780373265039-Death+Of+The+River+Master+Texana+Jones

Her husband, Clay, a popular veterinarian with patients on both sides of the (almost dry) Rio Grande, has been arrested for the murder of the river master, the official in charge of allocating the region's scan water supply under the terms of the bi national agreement. Now Clay is in jail awaiting trial in a Mexican court........ (click on the link for more extended blurb)

Cold in the Earth (Meredith and Markby)
A tightly knit English village provides the atmospheric background for this third mystery in Ann Granger's Cotswolds series. To former Foreign Service Officer Meredith Mitchell, the Cotswolds represent a haven of peace and tranquility away from her stuffy London apartment; to her old friend Chief Inspector Markby, they represent home specifically the charming village of Bamford. Markby's anger at watching bulldozers threaten one of his boyhood haunts turns to alarm when workmen uncover a recently buried corpse. The identity of the dead man remains a mystery; the worker who dug up the body has disappeared and the farmers who own land adjacent to the burial site are little help. Charming, eccentric old Mrs. Carmody treats Markby, whom she has known since he was a boy, as if he still is one, and Mrs. Winthrop at the neighboring farm is happy to supply him with scones and tea but gives little else away. The only cheering prospect on the horizon for Chief Inspector Markby is the forthcoming arrival of Meredith, who has finally, after much prodding, accepted his invitation to visit. Together they begin to follow a trail of clues that leads them from an old ruin where witchcraft may once have been practiced to a dangerous and illegal business to the terrible secret in one family's past.
Very short, and so, if you order this, you can take another. I would really have preferred less music and more talking.
But a nice audio on cassette.
