Join the race from Missouri, across the plains and mountains to California and back again as brave Pony Express riders and their supporters along the route work to get mail cross-country in just ten days. It is an outstanding task in the years 1860 to 1861, and only a few are up to the job. Faced with challenges of terrain, weather, hostile natives, sickness, and more, can these adventurous pioneers hold fast, and can they also find lasting love in the midst of daily trials?

Declaring one’s love can be hard—even risky—especially when faced with some of life’s greatest challenges. Separated by class, time, distance, and more, some loves must remain secret until the time is right. Instead, notes of affection, acts of kindness, gifts of admiration, and lots of prayer are circulated. From New England mansions to homestead hovels, love is quietly being nourished and waiting for the right time to be revealed. But when love can finally be boldly expressed, will it be received by love in return?

 

The Last Letter by CJ Dunham - Kansas,1865
The Civil War has taken everyone Emilia Davis loves. When she receives her dead fiancé’s last letter, she embarks on a journey into the Kansas frontier to fulfill his last wish. So who is sending her anonymous gifts?

When Deputy Ken Brody's sweetheart goes missing in the mountains outside Timber Creek, Mattie Cobb, and her K-9 partner Robo are called to search. But it's mid-October, and a dark snow storm is brewing over the high country. And they're already too late. By the time they find her body, the storm has broken, and the snow is coming down hard.

While Brody hikes down to bring back the forensics team and veterinarian Cole Walker gathers supplies to protect them from the storm, Mattie and Robo find themselves alone, guarding the gravesite overnight in the dead of the early winter. And that's only the first long, night in a series of them, because as their investigation develops, Mattie, Robo, Brody, and Cole find themselves in the middle of the killer's stalking ground--where the hunters have just become the hunted.

An effortlessly engrossing read filled with tension, excitement, and heart, Stalking Ground, the second in Margaret Mizushima's lauded debut series, will send a chill down every reader's spine.

Throughout his life, Sean has felt like an outsider in his own family. And not being told about his brother's plans is just one more piece of evidence that he's right.

Tired of being the odd one out, Sean is determined to forge his own path. Little does he know that it's not easy to escape your family--especially when a powerful secret from the past threatens to explode everything Sean ever believed.

Author(s): 

 This is an appealing mystery that is suspenseful enough to keep readers engaged, but not so much as to lose sleep over. Crime-fighting duo Mattie Lu Cobb and her K-9 partner Robo are bright, daring and intuitive, and Robo’s character adds a fun dynamic to the story. Mizushima does an excellent job of developing them as characters, allowing readers to feel a personal connection to them both. Overall a great debut for an up-and-coming mystery writer.

Mattie Lu Cobb and her canine partner Robo are fresh out of the K-9 training academy. When they get a call to investigate suspicious behavior in the mountains outside their rural Colorado town, they are both excited to put their skills into action. However, when Robo discovers the body of a young girl, the town is devastated. Working together, Mattie and Robo must uncover who killed this girl and why before the killer strikes again. (CROOKED LANE, Dec., 320 pp., $24.99)
