Resort to Murder  - by Carolyn Hart

About love the second time around. Lloyd Drake, Henrie O's former son-in-law and the father of her grandchildren, plans to marry a wealthy widow. Henrie O accompanies her grandchildren to Bermuda for the wedding. Bermuda is an island that welcomes lovers, but this wedding party has death as an uninvited guest.

Lloyd is passionately in love with Connor Bailey, a beautiful widow with a knack for attracting men. Only a year ago, the resort manager's husband was her conquest until he fell - was it an accident? - from a tower after a very public quarrel with Connor. Now his ghost seems to be prowling the grounds of the luxury hotel and Connor is terrified.

Henrie O doesn't believe in ghosts though even she can't explain away the unnerving late night apparition. A second death - this time a fall from a cliff - makes it clear to Henrie O that there is great evil abroad in this enclave of elegance.

She sets out to unmask the creator of a "ghost" but soon she realizes there is much more at stake. She draws on a half-century of expertise as a top-notch investigative reporter to reveal a truth so cleverly concealed there seems to no chance it will ever be discovered. But that's only half the battle. As a cold and relentless killer stalks a missing child, Henrie O races to the rescue.

The 101 Ranch and the Creation of the American West - by Michael Wallis
It's hard to imagine a better fit between subject and author than Michael Wallis and the 101 Ranch....This is a very good read." - Larry McMurtry $35 from St. Martin's Press "For decades the story of the 101 Ranch and the Miller Family has delighted young and old alike... Michael Wallis' book will serve as an outstanding and entertaining guide to an institution that has played a significant role in the history of our great country."
- Gene Autry Ten years in the making, the Real Wild West achieves in nonfiction what Lonesome Dove did for fiction in 1985.  The Real Wild West written by the nationally best-selling author of Route 66, presents the never-told-before story of the most influential and memorable ranch of the old West.

Founded in 1893, the 101 Ranch in Oklahoma embodied the spirit of the frontier for the entire nation.  The Ranch's troupe of cowboys and cowgirls performed before packed audiences across the country, and 101 ranch hands starred in many of the first silent Westerns every made.  Full of incredible characters - Geronimo, Buffalo Bill, Will Rogers, and others who visited the ranch - and unbelievable stories, this tale reflects the story of America itself, in all its grandeur and all its foibles.

Jacob's Blood - by Brad Mangum
"Jacob's Blood" about rebuilding a family (Post Civil War). Jake Brady leaves his home in Georgia to fight for the Union Army. He leaves behind his wife and son. With the war over, Grant and Lee had made peace, but Jake Brady returns home to find he has more fighting to do. He must fight to win back the love of his family and fight off those who would gladly kill a turncoat in cold blood. An employee came in my office one day and said, "Families have never been under such stress as they are today." My reply was, "Oh really, how would you like to look down your gun barrel and see your brother? That's what happened during the American Civil War." My book Jacob's Blood addresses the rebuilding of families after the Civil War. One reader from New Mexico called me and said," I laughed, I cried, but I couldn't but it down. I want all my Grandchildren to read this book." I then asked her if she felt this book would be more for a younger audience? Her reply, "I'm 60 years old and I loved it. This book is for anyone who is a member of a family and that includes everybody". In "Jacob's Blood" you will find humor, suspense, romance, and important lessons that can help rebuild and strengthen families today.

Road Weary Warriors - by Sandi Rosamond
This is a humorous book about and for Road Warriors. This book came about as the result of the author's personal experiences while traveling around 100 thousand air miles yearly for a variety of corporations, educational institutions, and personal business. Meant to be somewhat funny and tongue-in-cheek, the information contained does have some truth mixed with what could only be categorized warped humor. For all the Road-Weary Warriors, it is hoped that this will lend a smile to the faces of the otherwise serious people who travel to earn an income.
