The breeds are thoroughly researched and represent canines from around the world. They range from rare breeds for the dog lover that wants something different, to the favorite breeds that make for a reliable choice. There are ancient breeds and modern breeds, including the "designer dogs" that have become so popular in recent years.

Still Missing

by Chevy Stevens

I don’t mind telling you that this author was recommended to me by a patron. Her comment was that this author has such an impressive style of writing that you realize great empathy for the main character and she is eagerly waiting for Chevy Stevens next book. Because of this patron’s claims, I continued to read this novel despite the fact that this is not my usual type of book. The story really grabs you; very hard to put down.

The story is by Annie as she is in session with her shrink. She is holding an open house for her client; the last prospective buyer shows up just as she was getting ready to close up on what had been a very slow day. After letting him look around for a while, she is just about to wrap up the viewing, the guy sticks a gun in her back and forces her into the back of his van. He forces her to lay down on her stomach then injects a knock-out drug into the back of her thigh. This book has an ending that you would never be able to imagine.

Manners & Mutiny: Finishing School #4

By Gail Carriger

Lessons in the art of espionage aboard Mademoiselle Geraldine's floating dirigible have become tedious without Sophronia's sootie Soap nearby. She would rather thwart dastardly Picklemen, yet her concerns about their wicked intentions are ignored.
Who can she trust? Only one thing is certain: a large-scale plot is under way. Sophronia must be ready to save her friends, her school, and all of London from disaster.


Beauty and the Beast: Lost in a Book

By Jennifer Donnelly

We follow Belle as she finds an enchanted book in the Beast’s library called Nevermore that carries her into a glittering new world. There, Belle is befriended by a mysterious countess who offers her the life she’s always dreamed of.

But Nevermore is not what it seems, and the more time Belle spends there, the harder it is to leave. Good stories take hold of us and never let us go, and once Belle becomes lost in this book, she may never find her way out again.
