Rock, Paper, Scissors by Alice Feeney
Ten years of marriage. Ten years of secrets. And an anniversary they will never forget. Think you know the person you married? Think again.
Adam and Amelia both like their jobs more than they like people, except each other. At least, that much was true when their marriage began. Between Adam’s all-consuming screenwriting career and Amelia’s unfulfilling job at the local dog shelter, disappointment abounds.
When Amelia wins a free weekend getaway to a remote venue in the Scottish highlands, it seems like the perfect way to reconnect with Adam. But a trip meant to rekindle their relationship soon reveals the many ways in which a relationship can become unrecognizable. From Alice Feeney comes ROCK PAPER SCISSORS, another domestic thriller with twists that will keep readers guessing from start to finish.

The Heron’s Cry by Ann Cleeves
Ann Cleeves—New York Times bestselling and award-winning author of the Vera and Shetland series, both of which are hit TV shows—returns with the extraordinary follow-up to The Long Call in the Two Rivers series.
The summer heat in North Devon is suffocating, and Detective Matthew Venn is called out to a murder scene at a rural artist’s home. Dr. Nigel Yeo has been found fatally stabbed with one of his daughter’s exquisite blown-glass vases.
Dr. Yeo had been investigating the suicide of a young man, Mack, from the local area in the weeks before he died. Mack suffered from depression for years, and had lately been drawn into a chilling online group led by a shadowy figure known as The Crow.
Then, another man is found killed in the same way. As the sultry heat intensifies, Matthew, along with officers Ross May and Jen Rafferty, finds himself treading carefully through the lies that smolder at the heart of his community.
DI Matthew Venn returns, and New York Times bestselling author Ann Cleeves proves once again that she is a master of her craft.

Forgotten in Death by J.D.Robb
The latest in the #1 New York Times bestselling series: Homicide detective Eve Dallas sifts through the wreckage of the past to find a killer.
The body was left in a dumpster like so much trash, the victim a woman of no fixed address, known for offering paper flowers in return for spare change—and for keeping the cops informed of any infractions she witnessed on the street. But the notebook where she scribbled her intel on litterers and other such offenders is nowhere to be found.
Then Eve is summoned away to a nearby building site to view more remains—in this case decades old, adorned with gold jewelry and fine clothing—unearthed by recent construction work. She isn’t happy when she realizes that the scene of the crime belongs to her husband, Roarke—not that it should surprise her, since the Irish billionaire owns a good chunk of New York. Now Eve must enter a complex world of real estate development, family history, shady deals, and shocking secrets to find justice for two women whose lives were thrown away…
