The Horse Dancer

Fast and Loose
by Stuart Woods
Stone Barrington returns in a new novel by New York Times best-selling author Stuart Woods. With more than 40 books in this series, it’s clear that Woods has made a lasting impression on readers with his former NYPD detective-turned-lawyer. Fast and Loose finds Stone in Florida up against a new enemy. Check out New York Dead, the first book in the series, to find out how this saga started.

My Italian Bulldozer
by Alexander McCall Smith
In this easy, entertaining read by best-selling author Alexander McCall Smith, Paul Stewart, like many authors, believes that getting away from it all will help him to finish his overdue manuscript and, maybe, escape from his personal problems. Choosing the idyllic Tuscan countryside, Paul encounters all sorts of interesting characters and is forced, by circumstance, to drive a bulldozer. Light and fun, this novel is perfect for spring.

One Perfect Lie
by Lisa Scottoline
Local favorite Lisa Scottoline returns to the best-seller list with another book for your ever-growing “To Read” list. In One Perfect Lie, Scottoline brings small town Pennsylvania alive in fictional Central Valley. When teacher Chris Brennan moves in and begins coaching the high school baseball team, a few of the boys on the team see a much-needed father figure. Unfortunately, Brennan’s resumé, life and even his name are a lie.
