Check the shelves for these new bestsellers

Crimson Death (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter) by Laurell K. Hamilton

“Number one New York Times bestseller Hamilton is still thrilling fans...with her amazing multifaceted characters and intricate multilayered world, a mix of erotic romance, crime-drama, and paranormal/fantasy fiction. Her descriptive prose is gritty and raw, with a mosaic of humor and horror to tell this complex, well-detailed story. But it’s her enigmatic stable of stars that continues to shine, managing their improbable interpersonal relationship dynamics.”

Without Warning: A J.B. Collins Novel by Joel C. Rosenberg

… When it comes to building suspense and tension, Rosenberg is merciless. With an unflinching plot that moves at blazing speeds, Rosenberg has packed more twists and turns into this novel than ever before as he continues to examine the threat ISIS poses to the rest of the world. The jaw-dropping ending alone is worth the price of admission, and will leave readers speechless. …

This Life I Live: One Man's Extraordinary, Ordinary Life and the Woman Who Changed It Forever by Rory Feek

The chapters likely to linger in readers' minds, however, are the ones illuminated by Joey’s presence. Rory writes on the first page, “I am famous for loving my wife.” Theirs was a powerful connection, one that overused words like “love” and “soulmate” can’t fully encapsulate, he says. Instead, he describes their connection as “magical.”

Banana Cream Pie Murder (A Hannah Swensen Mystery) by Joanne Fluke

Newlywed Hannah Swensen Barton (Wedding Cake Murder, 2016, etc.) is disconcerted to find that her husband Ross’ favorite dessert is a clue in a murder investigation. … Baking maven Fluke wants to have her cake and eat it too. Grafting Hannah’s new relationship with Ross onto her lingering attachment to two previous boyfriends, her family of origin, her business, and the rest of the Lake Eden crew leaves precious little room for mystery.

The Cutthroat (An Isaac Bell Adventure) by Clive Cussler and Justin Scott

It’s No. 10 in the Cussler and Scott (The Gangster, 2016, etc.) series chronicling the adventures of rich man–sleuth Isaac Bell and the Van Dorn Detective Agency as the 20th century dawns. … Despite an awkward transition or two and a bit of padding (there’s a recipe for Welsh rarebit), the Bell series hits the right note for those who like crime fiction with a unique setting.

Heartbreak Hotel: An Alex Delaware Novel by Jonathan Kellerman

Child psychologist Dr. Alex Delaware (Breakdown, 2016, etc.) deals with his oldest client yet, a deceptively sweet old lady who gently importunes him to provide his services but dies without explaining why. … Entertaining as the conscientious excavation of ancient misdeeds is, it all ends up having disappointingly little to do with the motive and the culprit in the unlikely murder of the tale’s most charming character.
