New Books

Unintended Lies by Linda Kendal McLendonUnintended Lies is aptly named considering its main characters are two former secret agents, Buck and Zane, and Catherine DeLong, a woman whose husband was killed in a car accident, or at least that’s what Catherine was told. All three characters have their share of secrets; some of those secrets they intentionally keep from one another; other secrets, even ones about themselves, they have yet to learn. And plenty of other characters in the novel, from sex-crazed Deb, to sinister Roger, and sweet and strong Uncle Walton, also have secrets to be revealed. Intended or not, the lies and the pasts of these characters entwine in interesting and unexpected ways that will give any reader plenty to keep him or her guessing.

Floats the Dark Shadow by Yves FeyYou don’t have to be a mystery lover to enjoy Yves Fey’s new novel Floats the Dark Shadow.

Any lover of good historical fiction will find it delightful. Fey not only captures the last decadent decade of nineteenth century Paris, but she does so decadently, not in a stylistically over-the-top way as too many writers might do, but by writing very readable and realistic prose about a large cast of characters that includes poets, tarot readers, artists, police inspectors, and endangered children. Readers will be in love with this artistic, dangerous world to the final page.

The Prodigal Housekeeper by Don MichaelThe Prodigal Housekeeper is perhaps the most surprising book I’ve read in a long time. It’s not a suspense novel, adventure story, or crime thriller, but don’t let the title fool you—neither is it about a servant. It’s about a “prodigal” woman, Caroline, and she’s a prodigal in every sense of the word. She does not abide by a moral code but simply uses men by marrying them and then divorcing them to get what she wants. Nor does she see anything wrong with her behavior. She is simply amoral, and I found her a fascinating character who experiences fascinating repercussions for her behavior because they are not at all what the reader would expect.

The Swiss Perspective by Wanek SteinI have to admit I’m an optimist. I’ve heard people bemoan how the economy is going to pot and the United States’ best days are behind it. I don’t want to believe that, but when I read Wanek Stein’s The Swiss Perspective, I realized it really is better to be safe than sorry.

Stein is very realistic about the current state of the U.S. and world economies. He does not utter doom and gloom prophecies, but after he lays out the truth of the horrendous and nearly unbelievable levels of the current U.S. debt and what has happened in other countries like Argentina that have been in this situation, only a fool would not realize that the situation is dire.

Cruising Through Turbulence by Rakesh SethiI am always impressed when an author can pack a great deal of wisdom into a small book and get straight to the point. Rakesh Sethi quickly reveals what is truly important about life in Cruising Through Turbulence. Like so many of us, he knows what it is to have one’s focus directed to acquiring things and pursuing wealth under the false pretense that it can solve all your problems and make your life better. After finding himself unhappy in the rat race, Sethi spent twenty-five years studying ancient wisdom, science, and philosophy, and now he presents what he has learned in a nutshell with simple steps for finding lasting happiness.

Right Distance, Wrong Direction by Don Boehm; illustrated by Alexandra ThurstonI don’t play golf. But that didn’t stop me from laughing out loud over story after story in Don Boehm’s new collection of one hundred true stories about golf and its players. To collect all the stories in Right Distance, Wrong Direction, Don has journeyed across the country from city to city playing golf. When asked, Boehm’s fellow golfers did not hold back in liberally telling tales of their and their friends’ most hilarious golf antics. Of course, there were occasions when golfers told Don they couldn’t think of a funny story, but then, while he was playing with them, you guessed it—the unexpected happened and a funny story arose. I only wish there were videos for all the stories because they would put America’s Funniest Home Videos to shame.
