Map of Bones by James Rollins
The bones lead to ancient mysteries and present-day terror . . . To follow them means death. During a crowded service at a cathedral in Germany, armed intruders in monks’ robes unleash a nightmare of blood and destruction. But the killers have not come for gold; they seek a more valuable prize: the bones of the Magi who once paid homage to a newborn savior . . . a treasure that could reshape the world.
Sex and the City by Candace Bushnell
Enter a world where the sometimes shocking and often hilarious mating habits of the privileged are exposed by a true insider. In essays drawn from her witty and sometimes brutally candid column in the New York Observer, Candace Bushnell introduces us to the young and beautiful who travel in packs from parties to bars to clubs. Meet “Carrie,” the quintessential young writer looking for love in all the wrong places…”Mr. Big,” the business tycoon who drifts from one relationship to another…”Samantha Jones,” the fortyish, successful, “testosterone woman” who uses sex like a man…not to mention “Psycho Moms,” “Bicycle Boys,” “International Crazy Girls,” and the rest of the New Yorkers who have inspired one of the most watched TV series of our time. You’ve seen them on HBO, now read the book that started it all…
The Vow by Kim Carpenter
Life as Kim and Krickitt Carpenter knew it was shattered beyond recognition on November 24, 1993. Two months after their marriage, a devastating car wreck left Krickitt with a massive head injury and in a coma for weeks. When she finally awoke, she had no idea who Kim was. With no recollection of their relationship and while Krickitt experienced personality changes common to those who suffer head injuries, Kim realized the woman he had married essentially died in the accident.
The Boxcar Children Summer Special by Gertrude Chandler Warner
Just in time for vacation, Boxcar fans can dive into summer reading with three warm-weather adventures about the Aldens, together in one volume. In The Mystery at the Ball Park, the baseball season is in jeopardy when someone steals a special bat and Jessie’s glove. Then the team almost doesn’t make it to their first game! In The Mystery of the Hidden Beach, the Aldens try to find the terrible secret that the beach holds. And in The Summer Camp Mystery, the children investigate why someone is sabotaging the annual Olympic competition at Camp Seagull. Boxcar Children Mysteries, always just right for summer reading, are now three times better with the The Boxcar Children Summer Special.
