“Beneath Copper Falls” by Colleen Coble dives into a romantic suspense with 911 dispatcher Dana Newell. In addition to an emotionally charged career, she’s faced her own emergencies and moves to tranquil Rock Harbor. But the idyllic town hides danger and secrets. After a 911 call featuring a friend’s desperate screams on the other end, Dana’s painful past collides with the present-and threatens to keep her from the future she's always wanted.

“Final Curtain” by Ngaio Marsh ripples with a delicious and classic country-house mystery. Well, country-castle. The lord of the manor, Shakespearian actor Sir Henry Ancred, is killed at his own birthday party, and artist Agatha Troy tries sleuthing on her own. With a family full of suspects to contend with, Agatha is pleased at last to hand things over to Inspector Alleyn, who had been, as one some may put it, “detained by World War II.”

“Puzzle House” by Lillian Duncan challenges Rachel Summers, self-absorbed until she crashes into a truck, with a question: does she want to be healed or to be a healer? Her choice leads to an outcome very different than expected. Now she runs Puzzle House, where every guest is there for healing. Then 15-year-old Nia, dying and angry, arrives at Puzzle House and Nia and Rachel embark on a journey that changes both of their lives.

“Big Book of Weekend Beading” by Jean Power presents the amazing versatility of beadwork with more than 30 weekend projects. From jewelry and clothing to home accessories and embroidered textiles, there’s something for a crafter’s every taste and level of ability. Simple to large-scale projects teach an exciting variety of methods — general beadwork to stringing, bead embroidery and wirework — to create stunning jewelry and make everyday items sparkle.

“A Year Off” by Alexandra and David Brown is one part travel guide, one part travel essays and photos and one part memoir documenting the story of Alexandra and David, a couple who decided to take a year off from their jobs and “regular lives” to travel the world together. Capturing all the beauty and magic of the wanderlust spirit, the authors share actionable travel advice on how others can take the same leap, showing just how doable a journey of round-the-world travel is.

“Marooned” by Joseph Kelly is a tale of intrigue, betrayal and redemption from America’s colonial past. It is also a moving reimagining of the American story. Kelley’s history of Jamestown shows that America is a community born of marooned colonists, escaped slaves and native inhabitants thrown together by an accident of history, and that the creed of liberty inscribed in the nation’s founding is not a foreign importation, but the unique inheritance of this potent brew.
