National bestselling author Erica Bauermeister returns to the enchanting world of The School of Essential Ingredients in this luminous sequel.
Lillian and her restaurant have a way of drawing people together. There’s Al, the accountant who finds meaning in numbers and ritual; Chloe, a budding chef who hasn’t learned to trust after heartbreak; Finnegan, quiet and steady as a tree, who can disappear into the background despite his massive height; Louise, Al’s wife, whose anger simmers just below the boiling point; and Isabelle, whose memories are slowly slipping from her grasp. And there’s Lillian herself, whose life has taken a turn she didn’t expect. . . .
Their lives collide and mix with those around them, sometimes joining in effortless connections, at other times sifting together and separating again, creating a family that is chosen, not given. A beautifully imagined novel about the ties that bind—and links that break—The Lost Art of Mixing is a captivating meditation on the power of love, food, and companionship.
From the Mayan pyramids of Chichen Itza to the Caribbean ruins of Tulum, many lives will be lost while searching for The Death Relic...
Little remains of the Aztec and Mayan civilizations after being vanquished by the Spanish Empire. From the ashes of their cities emerged a unified legend: their conquerors possessed a mysterious artifact so powerful—so deadly—that it was known as the Death Relic. Despite its infamy, little else is known about the object, which was lost long ago.
When archaeologist Maria Pelati’s research team disappears in the Yucatán Peninsula, she enlists Jonathon Payne and David Jones to find them. As they embark on their perilous mission, they realize that Maria’s research could be the key to solving one of the darkest mysteries of the New World and unearthing the secret of the Death Relic.
Thomas Sanchez’ Key West novel, MILE ZERO, was hailed by the Washington Post to be a "holy terror of a book of immense power and passion” and acclaimed by the New York Times as, “bursting with vital characters in a brilliantly contrived plot.” Sanchez returns to America’s famous Southernmost point in the Florida Keys with American Tropic.
The exotic island city of Key West is terrorized by horrific murders committed by a mysterious voodoo assassin. The novel propels us through a complex maze populated by rapacious developers, ruthless scammers and common folk struggling in heroic acts for moral high ground. In the midst of the mayhem only two people hold the key to unlocking a startling truth--Noah Sax, a pirate radio shock-jock crusading against the destruction of the environment, and Luz Zamora, a homicide detective and dedicated mother defending her family. The final showdown of apocalyptic fear and ecological rage dramatically explodes in a shocking turnaround of redemptive fervor.
The explosive new masterpiece of suspense from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author.
LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well. Eight months ago, a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty—until he meets his new partner.
Maggie is not doing so well, either. A German shepherd who survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before losing her handler to an IED, her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s.
They are each other’s last chance. Shunned and shunted to the side, they set out to investigate the one case that no one wants them to touch: the identity of the men who murdered Stephanie. What they begin to find is nothing like what Scott has been told, and the journey will take them both through the darkest moments of their own personal hells. Whether they will make it out again, no one can say.
From The New York Times bestselling author of The Red Hat Club and Wife-In-Law comes another hilarious and heartwarming novel
Beloved author Haywood Smith's Out of Warranty is a witty social satire that's right on topic for anyone who's ever had to deal with health insurance claims. Out of Warranty sends up the health insurance industry, the medical profession, and falling apart ten years before Medicare. To quote widowed Cassie Jones: "If you have anything weird wrong with you in this country, you'd better be Canadian."
When medical costs eat up all of Cassie's money, she decides she must remarry for health insurance, but her fix-ups and e-dates are unsuccessful, despite the grudging help of fellow patient Jack, a reclusive, one-legged curmudgeon on the same appointment schedule at her specialist's. When dating doesn't work out, Cassie comes up with a pragmatic but unconventional solution. As always with Haywood Smith's books, there are plenty of laughs and lots of heart.
