New adult fiction

Here’s a few new adult fiction books to consume, including several by NY Times bestselling authors, two of which are large print editions; if I were you, I’d keep a light on.

Well known author, J.D. Robb, Brotherhood in Death (Large Print), is a NY Times bestselling author. Another great “who dun it” novel. Two cousins, once as close as brothers, find themselves at odds over their late grandfather’s brownstone home. When Dennis finds out his cousin was meeting with a real estate agent, without consulting him, he decides to confront him and the agent. When he gets there he hears voices and goes in that direction. He sees his cousin bleeding and tied up and then… You will have to read it to find out. This book is also available in regular print.

Blue, by Danielle Steel, another NY Times bestselling author (Large Print), has produced a very emotionally gripping story of dark secrets, second chances and the power of love and courage to overcome life’s greatest challenges. On the anniversary of that fateful accident, she meets Blue, a 13 year old boy, abandoned by his family. Will he trust her? What was it that she learns that he’s been hiding for so long?

Orphan X, by NY Times bestselling author, Gregg Hurwitz, is a thriller beyond thrillers. A young boy, pulled from a foster home by the U.S. government, was raised and trained to be a part of a covert operation designed to create the perfect assassins. Evan broke with the program, leaving his past behind, or did he? Someone is on his tail, getting closer and closer. Get your pot of hot coffee brewing, a box of cookies, and find a comfy spot on the couch. This is going to be a long night since there is no way you would be able to drift off to sleep before finishing it.

Ariel Lawhon, author of Flight of Dreams, take readers on the doomed last flight of the Hindenburg. It is loaded with mystery, romance, big dreams, murder and betrayal. All the things that make a good story, a great historical fiction that will leave you wondering what really happened to the Hindenburg?

For a bit of romance and mystery all in one book, come on over and grab the novel by Karen Robards, The Last Time I saw Her. She is also the NY Times bestselling author of Her Last Whisper. As would be expected she merges the two worlds of mystery and romance like no one else. It will have you on the edge of your set, for sure. Charlie Stone’s ghostly lover is facing death yet again. A mysterious stranger turned up and Charlie finds out that he could easily pass for Michael’s twin. In order to free Michael, she must risk her life, and contend with a  swarm of psychopaths at the state prison.

NY Times Best selling author, Vince Flynn, writes a truly awesome thriller, The Survivor. There is lots of intrigue, CIA, stolen classified documents, all in an elaborately masterminded betrayal of his country. There’s a deadly race to the finish as both the Pakistanis and the Americans search desperately for accomplices and for those confidential documents that are slowly being leaked to the world. So, hold on to your seat as you  venture through this outstanding thriller.

If you’ve been keeping track, Devil’s Bridge is Linda Fairstein’s 17th novel about Alexandra Cooper. In this novel, detective Mike Chapman, has to find out why or how Cooper disappeared. She’s made many enemies during more than a decade of putting criminals behind bars. Will Mike’s and Coop’s new intimacy cause problems for Mike as he tries to solve this mystery? The Manhattan waterfront is the back drop for this exciting novel.
