"Starred Review. Katherine Kellgren gives a marvelous performance in this entertaining chick lit/romance about 30-something Jane, who fantasizes about Jane Austen's heroes (particularly Mr. Darcy) while her real-life relationships flounder." -- Publishers Weekly "The book is well written, quite readable, and the myriad characters, especially those working at the resort, are quirkily funny... -- Sarah Krygier, Solano County Library, Fairfield, CA, for School Library Journal

The Funniest Cop Stories Ever
Author: Tom Philben
Genre: Law Enforcement
** Some language, violence, and mild s3xual situations recommended for ages sixteen and up **
DESCRIPTION: Cops are the people who see and hear it all. They work at one of the world's most dangerous jobs, but it's also one of the most entertaining. When their lives are at risk and even when they aren't cops encounter constant weirdness and stupidity in human behavior. The Funniest Cop Stories Ever collects the strangest, most amusing stories about stupid crooks, bungled crimes, and station-house banter. A true look at what life is like behind the badge, the tales in The Funniest Cop Stories Ever were collected by real-life ex-New York City policeman Scott Baker and coauthor Tom Philbin. Anecdotes are told by the real-life cops who experienced them and include: A foot chase after a dwarf who karate-kicked his girlfriend's door and assaulted her while wearing a tuxedo and carrying a violin case. A beggar who ended people's pay phone calls so he could demand their extra spare change. A narcotics bust on a guy who claimed the crack cocaine and his pants didn't belong to him.
Author: Michael Lister
Genre: Mystery - Thriller
DESCRIPTION: This stand-alone thriller from Lister, author of the John Jordan series (Blood of the Lamb, etc.), opens on a suspenseful note, but deteriorates toward the end. A camera set up by Remington James to photograph wildlife in the North Florida woods captures images of a man in uniform shooting a woman to death. Soon afterward, the murderer himself, an officer with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, confronts James, who spends the rest of the book fleeing from the gunman and his colleagues. James's ability to hold his own against trained killers strains belief, and his repeated inability to restrain himself from using the radio he picked up from one of the killer's allies, despite his knowledge that doing so could reveal his location, will also try readers' patience.
EDIT TO ADD: 1:45 p.m. CST
Hollowland (The Hollows, #1)
Author: Amanda Hocking
Genre: Horror - Occult - Zombie
* Some language, violence, and mild adult situations *
DESCRIPTION: Hollowland - the first book in the young adult dystopian series The Hollows. "This is the way the world ends - not with a bang or a whimper, but with zombies breaking down the back door." Nineteen-year-old Remy King is on a mission to get across the wasteland left of America, and nothing will stand in her way - not violent marauders, a spoiled rock star, or an army of flesh-eating zombies. This is a young adult title with some language, violence, and mild sexual situations recommended for ages sixteen and up. '
