Hardscape, by Justin Scott
Welcome to Newbury, Connecticut, a charming, picture-perfect New England village. To native son Ben Abbott, it was a good place to come home to after a tumultuous Wall Street career and a stretch in prison. All he wanted now was to make a decent living. The last thing he needed was to get involved with a beautiful-and very married-new neighbor. But when Rita Long is accused of murder and asks for his help, Ben can't bring himself to say no. It's not the first mistake he's ever made, but it might be the biggest.
Rivers of Gold, Janet Edmonds
The Yukon Territory in the 1890s. For Amity Jones, that harsh but beautiful land was not at all what she expected when she left her home in England to become a mail-order bride to a Canadian "farmer." What she finds is an untamed frontier, where each day promises adventure and a new test of her grit. Yet more daunting than the wild land are the restless men who come searching for gold. Dogsleds and blizzards, gunfights and romance-they're all part of this enthralling saga of gold rush days in the Klondike.
The Select, by F. Paul Wilson
They've got to take me, Quinn thought. They've just got to. For Quinn Cleary, being accepted to the Ingraham College of Medicine was the only way she would ever realize her lifelong ambition of becoming a doctor. The school had top faculty, state-of-the-art facilities, and, best of all, no tuition or fees. But as Quinn and fellow student Tim Brown soon discover, there is a hidden price to pay. And when Tim stumbles on a sinister secret, he and Quinn find that the price could well be their lives. An all-too-plausible tale of medical science gone out of control.
