New On the Shelf

Texas Ranger by James Patterson.  It takes skill and dedication to become a Texas Ranger, let alone rise through the ranks, but Rory Yates has both in spades and his career in the Rangers only cost him one thing-his marriage.  But when his ex-wife, Anne, makes a rather strange call to him, Rory is on his way back to their former home to try and help.  What he finds there is anything but what he expected, Anne dead and Rory himself the prime suspect for her murder.  Rory knows he is innocent, but he seems to be the only one, so he’ll have to put his career, his pride, and even his reputation on the line to find the real killer and get justice for Anne and himself.

When We Found Home by Susan Mallery.  Finding out she has a previously unknown brother and sister is not something Callie Smith was ever prepared for, but here she is trying to figure out how Malcolm and Keira fit into her life.  Malcolm grew up with wealth and affection, both things that Callie and Keira didn’t have, and a rather wide understanding gap looms between them all.  With all three siblings living together with their grandfather in the family home on the shores of Lake Washington, there will need to be some serious adjustments for everyone if they hope to truly become a family.

Fly Girls by Keith O’Brien.  For a period between the world wars, airplane racing was the biggest sporting draw around.  Pilots were brave daredevils staring death in the face simply for the joy of flight, at least that is how the men were treated.  Although a match in skill and bravery to any man, women were derided as intruding into the territory of men and making the sport “less manly”.  Florence Klingensmith, Ruth Elder, Amelia Earhart, Ruth Nichols, and Louise Thaden, these women would work to open airplane racing and even flight to all who would dare the open blue sky.
