“If you have never said “Excuse me” to a parking meter or barked your shins on a fireplug, you are probably wasting too much valuable reading time…” – Sheri Chasin Calvo, writer

“The Whisperer”

(Fiction) This one is just spooky! Six severed arms are found, arranged in a mysterious circle, and buried in a clearing in the woods. Five of them appear to belong to missing girls between the ages of eight and thirteen. The sixth is yet to be identified. There’s no sign of the bodies, dead or alive. Celebrated profiler Mila Vasquez and Goran Gavila dive into the case and are confident they are on the right trail when suddenly they discover no link between him and any of the kidnappings except the first. You will not be able to put this one down…

“Buffalo Bill’s Dead Now”

(Fiction, A Wind River Mystery) In the fashion of Tony Hillerman, Margaret Coel weaves authentic Native American culture into this compelling mystery. After more than 120 years, the regalia worn by Chief Black Heart in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show were supposed to be returned to his people. However, only empty cartons arrived at the Arapaho Museum. Arapaho attorney Vicki Holden and Father John O’Malley suspect there’s much more than meets the eye when they witness a speeding car with a dead man inside. Oh, then there’s the blood feud between two Arapaho families.

“Tim Guinn’s Fashion Bible”

(Nonfiction) As soon as you get this book, go immediately to Chapter 3; that’s the one that talks about jeans. If you’ve been around a while, you’ll remember that girls wearing jeans to elementary school in the 1950s was absolutely forbidden! What a long way we’ve come.

Guinn reveals the fascinating story behind jeans and lots of other clothing dating back to ancient times in a book that reads like a walking tour from museum to closet. You will likely change your thinking about the past, present, and future of fashion.

Oh yes, Guinn explains how the 1960s ruined American underwear.

“The Drop 10 Diet”

(Nonfiction) Dieting usually brings a negative connotation, but Danziger’s book promises a positive experience. She recommends eating more of the superfoods – everyday faves like eggs, yogurt, steak, Parmesan cheese, dark chocolate and coffee. These foods naturally reduce your dependence on less healthful foods. Not only do folks who’ve followed this diet lose weight and inches, they’ve successfully reduced risk for diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and inflammation.

Recipes are included; they look very good and easy to prepare. You’ll be glad you found this book.
