Reading Ahead: June 2017, part 1

Get ready to dig in this summer, readers! The avalanche of summer books is coming!

Come Sundown, by Nora Roberts. This title has actually been bumped up slightly and is coming out at the tail end of May. The ever popular Roberts combines family secrets and mystery in a romantic suspense fans have been anticipating for months. The Bodine ranch and resort is a family business, home to four generations and an ideal spot for vacationers. But when one of their staff is attacked after hours, and then the family's black sheep resurfaces with a harrowing tale of her own, the family's safehaven feels anything but safe.

Murder Games, by James Patterson & Howard Roughan. In this new stand-alone novel from the extremely prolific Patterson machine, Dr. Dylan Reinhardt is the leading expert on criminal behavior--he literally wrote the book on the subject. But when a copy of his book turns up at a gruesome murder scene, complete with a message from the killer, it seems as though someone has been taking notes. The NYPD detective in charge of the case, Elizabeth Needham, recruits Dylan to help investigate another souvenir left at the scene--a playing card. Another murder, another card--and now Dylan suspects that the cards aren't a signature, they're a deadly hint--pointing directly toward the next victim. Also available in Large Print.

Camino Island, by John Grisham. Bruce Cable owns a popular bookstore in the sleepy resort town of Santa Rosa on Camino Island in Florida. He makes his real money, though, as a prominent dealer in rare books. Very few people know that he occasionally dabbles in the black market of stolen books and manuscripts. 
Mercer Mann is a young novelist with a severe case of writer’s block who has recently been laid off from her teaching position. She is approached by an elegant, mysterious woman working for an even more mysterious company. A generous offer of money convinces Mercer to go undercover and infiltrate Bruce Cable’s circle of literary friends, ideally getting close enough to him to learn his secrets. Trouble in paradise? You bet. Large Print available soon.
