From head to toe / Eric Carle

From their heads down to their toes, kids will be wriggling, jiggling, and giggling as they try to keep up with these animals!Alligators wiggle, elephants stop, gorillas thump, and giraffes bend.

1 Teddy bear : A counting book / Bernette Ford
Kids can count the teddy bears (from one to ten) as these cuddly creatures go about their everyday activities. One’s all alone, two are on the phone, three are dressed in blue, four are waving at YOU! The simple, graphic design makes the numbers easy to read and shows off the irresistibly cute bears. (board book; Age Range: For infants or children in preschool)

The dead lie down / Sophie Hannah
Ruth Bussey once did something wrong-horribly wrong-and was nearly destroyed by her punishment. Now, she has tentatively rebuilt her life and unexpectedly found love with a man named Aidan Seed. But Aidan also has a secret-he killed someone years ago, a woman named Mary Trelease. Ruth’s horror turns to confusion when she realizes that she knows Mary Trelease, and Mary is very much alive.

Through the heart / Kate Morgenroth
Nora lives in a small Kansas town, living paycheck to paycheck, working in a coffee shop. Timothy lives in Manhattan, responsible to no one and nothing except managing his family’s millions. When these two meet, it seems like the beginning of a fairy tale. Except Nora is not your typical damsel in distress, Timothy does not quite fit the role of a gallant prince, and fairy tales don’t include a dead body. As Nora and Timothy take turns telling their sides of the story, the reader is caught in the net of their love, and the chilling murder that results.

In harm’s way / Ridley Pearson
Sun Valley sheriff Walt Fleming’s budding relationship with photographer Fiona Kenshaw hits a rough patch after Fiona is involved in a heroic river rescue and she attempts to duck the press. Despite her job and her laudable actions, she begs Walt to keep her photo out of the paper, avoiding him when he can’t.
Then Walt gets a phone call that changes everything: Lou Boldt, a police sergeant out of Seattle, calls to report that a recent murder may have a Sun Valley connection. After a badly beaten body is discovered just off a local highway, Walt knows there is a link-but can he pull the pieces together in time? (Walt Fleming Series #4)
