Featured Book - The Life O'Reilly by Brian Cohen

lifeo.jpgOn the outside, Nick O’Reilly has it all: a high-flying legal career, as a partner of an elite Wall Street law firm, and financial security, with an apartment overlooking Central Park. Having grown up in a working-class family, as far back as Nick can remember this was his dream. But at the age of thirty-six, after several years of sacrificing his personal life for professional gain, Nick has started to ponder his future and consider the mark he wants to leave on society both professionally and personally—his legacy.

After being chastised in the press for turning a cold shoulder to the community, the firm calls upon Nick to help rehabilitate its image by handling its first pro bono case. Nick is asked to represent Dawn Nelson, a domestic violence victim who is fighting for custody of her young son, Jordan. A far cry from Nick’s specialty of defending the misdeeds of Corporate America, it is up to Nick to set Dawn and Jordan on a path to a better life. But Nick gets much more than he signed on for, as Dawn forces him to reassess his life choices and, ultimately, be true to himself. Only when Nick finally realizes what is truly important in life does he face his toughest—and possibly final—challenge: a battle for his own survival.



Featured Book - Sewing a Friendship by Natalie Tinti

friendship.jpgMeeka, Sokron, Jonsy, and Nina were the best of friends and super excited about the start of summer! Their adventure began as they were getting ready for a ‘pink sleepover’ and ran into a girl named Kiki as they were walking through the park. The girls thought she was the meanest girl on the planet. After Kiki made a snide comment that the four girls were not invited to an exciting fashion show, they made a mad-dash to Sokron’s house. There they would figure out, with the help of Sokron’s grandma, how also to participate in this event. When the invitation for the fashion show got stolen by Sokron’s dog, Dogon, the girls chased after him and bumped into Kiki again. With hesitation and some uncertainty, the girls summoned the courage to invite Kiki to join their fashion show team. Back at Sokron’s house, the five girls finished their final preparations and rushed to the show in grandma’s long-as-a-boat motor bike. After the show, the girls felt a strong bond of friendship. Kiki then understood that taking a step towards friendship was better than being alone. All the girls learned that by having the courage to include others you can ‘sew a friendship’.



Featured Book - No Stone Unturned by Jeanette A. Fratto

unturned.jpgChanging the course of one's life doesn't usually result in mystery and danger. LINDA DAVENPORT certainly didn't anticipate such an outcome when she left her stable life as a teacher for new beginnings, but unexpected events dictated otherwise. Flying from Detroit to Los Angeles she meets CAROL ALDER. Their acquaintance promises to blossom into a close friendship. Settling in at the home of EDITH CARTER, Linda spends a day with Carol before starting her new job in publishing. In a few days her world is turned upside down when her job fails to materialize and Carol is killed in an auto accident under mysterious circumstances. Determined to remain in California, Linda is thrown into further turmoil when Carol's brother, GREGORY ALDER, is convinced her death was no accident and believes someone in the probation/court system, where Carol worked, was responsible. But why? Linda's job hunting takes her into Probation where she begins to uncover disturbing information that leads her to agree with Gregory. Linda never reveals to her co-workers that she knew Carol. As she learns more about the system, she puts together more pieces of the puzzle. Along the way she reconnects with DAVID WYNDHAM, a former college love, now overseeing a local drug program, the success of which is crucial to his future. He becomes her ally in her quest to learn why Carol died, but when she uncovers what may be the truth, it threatens not only his future but possibly their future together. Conflicted by her sense of duty and her love for David, Linda nevertheless follows her conscience, with a resolution both logical and surprising.



Featured Book - Operation Snowshoe by Thomas F. Erickson

operationsnowshoe.jpgIn the late '60's, an orthopedic surgeon completes a medical tour of duty in Vietnam, then returns home and opens a clinic in New York City. Dow the street, a young Israeli woman with a PhD in Middle East history becomes a tenured professor at Columbia University.

Nine hundred miles to the west, an auburn-haired Brit with impeccable med-school credentials begins her residency in a Chicago military hospital. Lying in one of her wards, a severely wounded US Army Lieutenant dreams about going to law school.

Strange bedfellows? Apparently not. Forty years later, the four are coupled in marriage and share adjoining mail boxes.

Operation Snowshoe is set in the present and documents the exploits of Patricia Shaver, a print journalist who has just completed research on the origins of the Arab-Israeli conflict. It is a snowy Midwest morning in an affuent village outside Chicago. Pat, the heiress to a banking fortune, is at home when her best friend rushes in and tells her about the funeral.

Pat chose not to attend the high profile affair. She is a longstanding member of the community, but has never hobnobbed with the deseased, a British doctor, or her husband, the consigliere of the Chicago Mafia. She also isn't acquainted with the honorary pallbearers, a Mediterranean-skinned orthopod and his Israeli wife.

Days after the first death, another member of the original four dies. When the local police allow the FBI and CIA to label the second death as a suicide, Pat decides to get involved. Suspecting a high-level coverup, she makes some discreet inquiries, but when her investigation is stymied by the federal authorities, she recruits and improbable ally and aligns herself with the ruling don of the Chicago Mafia.

Do the ends justify the means? Pat is disturbed by the crime boss's methods, but even more appalled by the discoveries they make. Before the Christmas week is over, she will understand how the four neighbors figure into an espionage scheme designed to enflame Middle East distrust and derail impending peace talks.



Featured Book - The Pearl of Dubai by Grant Foster

A ball is held at the Winter Palace. It's an evening of discovery, romance and secrets; an evening that will lead to one of the greatest cover-ups in history. A plan devised by the highly spirited fifteen-year-old Anastasia will have the palace in turmoil. As Tsar Nicholas and Tsarina Alexandra keep their son's illness, hemophilia, secret from the people of Russia, Rasputin persuades them to guard Anastasia's plan even more tenaciously.

The colorful agent of Faberge, female impersonator Terence Hodge, is persuaded by the handsome Grand Duke Dimitri Pavlovich, cousin to the Tsar, to be involved with the plan. Dimitri has no choice but to help after being discovered in the Paradise Maze along with Countess Basilevsky. Theirs is a privileged world and one of unabated excess.

As love matures and the horror of the Revolution builds, the astonishing secrets of the Imperial family are finally revealed.
