Along Came a Cowboy (2 Copies)
Bev Pettersen
Westerhall Press
ISBN: 9781987835151

Rodeo champ Carter Bass vows to steer clear of women, especially Barbie cowgirls with their bright lipstick and artificial smiles. The Mustang River Ranch's wilderness chase offers the perfect opportunity to escape his fans and match wits with quarry that is tough, smart and athletic.

Allie McIvor found a place to call home when she fled the city for a job at the luxury ranch. She barely knows the front of a horse from the back, but she can dress enough like a cowgirl to keep the guests happy. And she's not about to let the disdain of one swaggering cowboy dim her day, no matter that he's too sexy for his own boots. 

But when she finds herself competing in the rugged outdoors contest, she's forced to dig up reserves of strength and determination she never realized she had. While that might be enough to win the heart of one hot broody cowboy, the Montana wilderness conceals many dangerous predators... And not all of them are four-legged.


Two 'Til Midnight: A Novel (2 Copies)
Bernard L. Dillard
BerNerd Publishing
ISBN: 9780578453484

At the center of a fierce, fiery, and invisible battle is Dr. Garnet Gibbs, a history professor, who is considered to be both a guidepost for and a mystery to many on the job. After hours, she often finds herself caught in a vortex of drama surrounding her family, associates, and friends. Although she tries to offer support as best she can, the shenanigans of all involved may prove to be too much for her, especially given the potpourri of players in her world, including: Jamay, her adopted daughter; R.J., her grandson, whose father is facing challenges as he serves overseas; Kemal and Manuela, a kinky church couple; Tario, a Que Dog, whose frivolity and wry wit lead to his nail-biting confrontation with death, igniting a spirited rally in the city; Nieko, a gay gentleman, who is rethinking his sexuality but whose ex-boyfriend is making it tough; Rusty, an avowed redneck, who makes a shocking decision since he believes President Trump is taking too long to do something about the current state of affairs; and Celeste, her what-comes-up-comes-out co-worker, who has a knack for catching people off guard with her uncanny sense of humor. Critical interactions reveal key life lessons, but not all interchanges end on an upswing.

Set in modern times, Two ’Til Midnight is a soap-operatic dramedy that presents two distinct and separate worlds that thrive together, both influencing the other in their own unique way. Ultimately, their coexistence produces a jaw-dropping ending that no one sees coming. Something’s brewing. Someone’s watching. And time is running out! Midnight is fast approaching. What will go down when the clock strikes twelve?!

Without a Map: A Caregiver’s Journey through the Wilderness of Heart and Mind (2 Copies)
Lisa Steele-Maley
Turning Stone Press
ISBN: 9781618521224

When Lisa Steele-Maley began helping her father navigate the details of a life interrupted by dementia, she was in unfamiliar territory. As a wilderness traveler, she was accustomed to adapting to ever-changing situations, but as her father's health declined, the idea of finding stability seemed impossible. Only one thing was sure: her father was losing perspective--losing track of time, the slippers at his feet, and his ability to find his way home. Lisa wasn't sure she had the skills, experience, or patience to competently travel this path with him, but taking one step at a time, she found it was as simple--and as profound--as life in the wilderness: Be prepared, be present. Trust the process, stay close.

Without a Map weaves together Lisa's experience of caregiving with lessons gleaned from decades of wilderness travel, rural living, and parenting. Revealing the uncertainty, wisdom, love and reciprocity of a caregiving relationship, this memoir contributes a deeply personal perspective to the subjects of dementia and aging.

A Dime is a Sign (1 Copy)
Sherrill S. Cannon
Strategic Book Publishing & Rights Agency, LLC
ISBN: 9781949483208

A psychic medium once said that if you find a random dime, it is a sign that someone that you have loved and lost is thinking of you.

Sherrill S. Cannon's second book of poetry contains messages written through the years in poetic form that put feelings into words. As a teacher, many of her poems helped counsel troubled teens and friends.

There are three sections in the book: Heads, Spinning, and Tails ... (Love & Loss: Coin Toss?). The variety of lyrical poetry forms include free verse, blank verse, haiku, and sonnets, while some are just playing with words!

Hopefully, this is also a book of healing.
