New On the Shelf

The Road Home by Richard Paul Evans.  A brush with death changes a man, as Charles James recently found out.  Narrowly escaping the plane crash that left the world thinking him deceased, Charles has come to question just who he really is.  Fame, money, and things didn’t end up brining him happiness, only the time spent with his ex-wife before he managed to ruin their relationship.  Free of any expectations, Charles is traveling Rout 66 on his way to Santa Monica to find himself and hopefully reconnect with his ex-wife.  However, news has reached Charles that Monica is planning to marry another man.  Even though plans and people change, there is still a destination for him to reach, although it may not be the one he was expecting.

Tightrope by Amanda Quick.  Buying a mansion to turn into a bed-and-breakfast as a way to reinvent herself seemed like a solid plan to Amalie Vaughn, but the property took the entirety of her inheritance and only now is she hearing about the supposed curse on the mansion.  With no other option, Amalie goes ahead with her plan and her first guest, Dr. Norman Pickwell is shortly murdered by his own robot invention.  In the chaos following the failed robotic demonstration, Amalie spots the mysterious Matthias Jones subtly trying to investigate and wonders if the rumors of his connections to the criminal underworld are true.  Meanwhile Matthias is trying to find the prototype cipher machine thought stolen by Pickwell, but the machine is missing and the doctor won’t be answering any more questions.  Both hiding their past and their growing attraction, Amalie and Matthias must work together to prevent a coming disaster.
