Reading Ahead: February 2016, part 3

February has fiction you'll love. Try one of these for a perfect match!

Brotherhood in Death, by J.D. Robb. Dennis Mira just had two unpleasant surprises. First he learned that his cousin Edward was secretly meeting with a real estate agent about their late grandfather’s magnificent West Village brownstone, despite the promise they both made to keep it in the family. Then, when he went to the house to confront Edward about it, he got a blunt object to the back of the head. Luckily Dennis is married to Charlotte Mira, the NYPSD’s top profiler and a good friend of Lieutenant Eve Dallas. And if Dallas is on the case, the person responsible for Dennis's attack and subsequent kidnapping of his cousin? Doesn't have a prayer. Robb, actually Nora Roberts, is a favorite and her long-running Eve Dallas series has millions of fans.

She’s Not There, by Joy Fielding. If you're a fan of authors like Mary Higgins Clark but you haven't read Joy Fielding, you really should consider giving her a try--why not start here?
Fifteen years ago, at a posh resort in Baja, Mexico, Caroline Shipley's world collapsed. The trip was supposed to be a celebration. Caroline’s husband, Hunter, convinced her to leave their two young daughters, Michelle and Samantha, alone in their hotel suite while the couple enjoyed an anniversary dinner in the restaurant downstairs. But returning afterward, Caroline and Hunter make a horrifying discovery: Two-year-old Samantha has vanished without a trace. What follows are days, weeks, and years of anguish for Caroline. And now, with a single phone call, Caroline finds her life turned upside-down all over again, as the caller claims to be Samantha.

Cometh the Hour, by Jeffrey Archer. Archer's Clifton Chronicles (this latest is book 6) have all been New York Times bestsellers, and fans have been lining up for this one for months already. (New to the series? Start with Only Time Will Tell.) It opens with a suicide note, which has devastating consequences for Harry and Emma Clifton, Giles Barrington and Lady Virginia. From Louisiana to London to Siberia, this family saga is sprawling and captivating, perfect for cozying up on a chilly night and losing yourself in the Cold War.
