Summary:

West is a high school senior who has everything going for him - until an accident leaves him paralysed. Strapped down in his hospital bed, moving in and out of consciousness, West is isolated and alone. Until he meets Olivia. Olivia is the girl next door - though not the typical girl next door. She is in the hospital room next to his, and before long, she's sneaking into his room to talk with him. Only Olivia seems to know what he's thinking, and even dreaming about. Yet certain questions haunt him- Why is Olivia in the hospital? And how is she connected to the terrible dreams he's been having? But the biggest shock of all comes when West must face the possibility that the girl he's fallen in love with - and who's done more to aid his recovery than anyone else - may not even be alive.

Summary:

Eighty-two-year-old Cal Brenneman is dying. As he lies in his hospital bed, his mind wanders in and out of the past, reliving the events that changed not only his life but the lives of his family -- a death in an icy creek, his first love in WWII England, and a violent 1980 morning in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado where Cal does something that even twenty years later his children find difficult to discuss. Shadowing Cal's life is the story of Emily Campbell, a Scottish girl whose lover dies in Cal's ambulance on a Salisbury landing strip during WWII. Just before dying, RAF Captain Connor McLaughlin hands a photo of Emily to Cal and pleads with him to deliver to her a tobacco pipe that had once belonged to her dead father. The return of the pipe sets in motion a chain of events that culminates in a deathbed visit by a millionaire claiming to be Cal's son. Blink Once to Spread Snow is a moving story that resonates with the spirit of family and the consequences of love, loss, guilt, and betrayal. A story of how Cal Brenneman, during the last few minutes of his life, blinks once and spreads snow one last time.

Summary:

Having taken on a media relations position with the Yavapai County Police Department, Ali Reynolds' first time out on the job is trial by fire. When a brand new housing estate goes up in flames, everyone hopes that the unfinished, unoccupied homes will yield no victims. But one woman is found barely alive and beyond recognition. For months she lies in a medically-induced coma, unclaimed and unidentified. When she finally awakes, badly disfigured and with no clue as to who she is or where she came from, she faces a bleak future. The victim faces even worse news when she's diagnosed with terminal cancer, and her quest to discover her identity takes on even greater urgency. In her new role, Ali Reynolds is called upon to grant the dying woman's final wishes: to find the people who saved her life - and the people who tried to kill her.

Summary:

NATIONAL BESTSELLER A charmingly relatable and wise memoir-in-essays by acclaimed writer and bookseller Mary Laura Philpott, “the modern day reincarnation of…Nora Ephron, Erma Bombeck, Jean Kerr, and Laurie Colwin—all rolled into one” (The Washington Post), about what happened after she checked off all the boxes on a successful life’s to-do list and realized she might need to reinvent the list—and herself. Mary Laura Philpott thought she’d cracked the code: Always be right, and you’ll always be happy. But once she’d completed her life’s to-do list (job, spouse, house, babies—check!), she found that instead of feeling content and successful, she felt anxious. Lost. Stuck in a daily grind of overflowing calendars, grueling small talk, and sprawling traffic. She’d done everything “right” but still felt all wrong. What’s the worse failure, she wondered: smiling and staying the course, or blowing it all up and running away? And are those the only options? Taking on the conflicting pressures of modern adulthood, Philpott provides a “frank and funny look at what happens when, in the midst of a tidy life, there occur impossible-to-ignore tugs toward creativity, meaning, and the possibility of something more” (Southern Living). She offers up her own stories to show that identity crises don’t happen just once or only at midlife and reassures us that small, recurring personal re-inventions are both normal and necessary. Most of all, in this “warm embrace of a life lived imperfectly” (Esquire), Philpott shows that when you stop feeling satisfied with your life, you don’t have to burn it all down. You can call upon your many selves to figure out who you are, who you’re not, and where you belong. Who among us isn’t trying to do that? “Be forewarned that you’ll laugh out loud and cry, probably in the same essay. Philpott has a wonderful way of finding humor, even in darker moments. This is a book you’ll want to buy for yourself and every other woman you know” (Real Simple).

Summary:

Blink twice for help... Something strange has gripped the residents of Douglas County, Oregon. One by one several people and even whole families have literally fallen down in what looks like a coma. It's horrifying for those untouched by the disease to see their loved ones fall beside them mid-word without any warning and without any discernible reason,. It's much more terrifying for the victims, however, than anyone realizes because the victims aren't in a coma. They are fully conscious, aware of their surroundings, and able to do only two things on their ownbreathe and blink. They have Locked In Syndrome, a kind of living death in which they can see, hear, taste and feel, but cannot even twitch their nose. Senior Public Health Nurse Nancy Brandauer has the task of finding out what happened to these people and what will bring them out of it before their condition becomes irreversible. Her quest is motivated by something much deeper than her commitment to her profession, great though that is. Her motivation springs from the very core of her soul because her only daughter is one of the victims. Into the midst of this emotional whirl, the Centers for Disease Control drops someone to "help." Her first love, Zachary Keller, a man from whom the parting was not sweet, but bitter, unresolved, and for which Nancy feels a certain guilt. Happily married now for many years, she draws strength from her husband Ed, even as he draws strength from her. Their bond is as unassailable as any couple's can be, but it faces a rapid succession of challenges that will test its temper as nothing has before. "Locked In" twists and turns, going where you least expect it. Just when you think you've rounded the last turn and worked everything out, it tosses you another surpriseright up to the very last page.

Summary:

In recent years, the paranormal has gained new footing as reality television has grabbed onto this research and created a cultural frenzy around it. There are those who are skeptics, those who believe, and those who seek to prove the existence of the paranormal. In The Double-Blind Ghost Box, authors Shawn Taylor and Daniel Morgan share their research and personal experiences with the paranormal, focusing on the development and use of the ghost box, a device that can establish a two-way communication beyond death’s veil. The Double-Blind Ghost Box reviews the process of Taylor and Morgan’s studies of the device, along with how they determined its usefulness in researching the paranormal. They explore the history of the ghost box and the issues arising in today’s ghost box methods, and they offer methods for conducting an objective ghost box investigation, processing ghost box evidence, analyzing the findings, and presenting the results to clients. Taylor and Morgan also discuss the different spirits an investigation might uncover and future ghost box applications and technologies. Sharing actual transcripts of investigations, The Double-Blind Ghost Box works toward communicating the existence of the paranormal through objective research. Shawn Taylor has a technical background in computer hardware, software, programming, digital media, Six Sigma problem solving, statistical analysis, psychology, and counseling. Daniel Morgan earned degrees in behavioral science and electrical engineering.

Summary:

When an attempt is made to restart the particle accelerator at Geneva during August of 2015, a major disaster occurs. Scientists, who had gathered in Dublin, found they were being called upon to solve a potential catastrophe. While six personnel were the process of repairing the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) a void of accelerated mass is created, trapping the team inside. There seems little hope of survival. In fact, they have not gone anywhere. They now existed in a massless light spectrum beyond which normal vision is not possible. By rights they all should be dead, crushed by the repressurisation of the LHC. They soon realise changes are affecting their personalities as they are bombarded by an onslaught of highly charged protons, causing actual places and events from the past come to life. Bryce, our hero, recognises that Ellen, Bryces love interest, can successfully use Mind Travel techniques to move through time and space. The team, using this same power, focus on a particular element from the periodic table, to literally move from place to place. The team move from place to place until they end up in nineteenth century New Zealand and discover a Maori warrior chief with a recognisable pendant around his neck. It indicates the various experiments being conducted in Geneva in 2015. Upon retrieving the pendant they set off on their mission to regain the other remaining symbols indicated on the pendant. The next item is an electrum necklace located near Queen Hatshepsuts Mortuary Temple. Bryce manages to steal this whilst Hatshepsut and Senenmut make love in his tomb. In the skirmish that follows Jason, Bryces best friend, is wounded by an Egyptian spear. They manage to escape by casting Senenmuts monetary offerings into the air of the Temple of Amun. The team travel to the Rome of Augustus, where they collect the original Res Gestae divi Augustae from the Temple of Vesta. This is to fulfil the next experiment on the Maori pendant. This collection goes relatively smoothly, despite a confrontation Ellen has with some Praetorian Guards. The collection of the death mask of the first wanax (King) from beneath the Lions Gate at Mycenae becomes problematic. John defeats the king, but they now bay for his blood. He manages to escape with the wounded Ellen only to be picked up by a shuttle from Fermilab in California. After a fortunate earthquake at Mycenae, the original team are given the job of reconstructing the damaged Cyclopean wall. The Fermilab shuttle reappears with John aboard. The original team find out from him that three years have elapsed within the period of the day he was absent. With the death mask collected and on aboard the Fermilab rescue team departs but, in doing so, Jason is wounded once again. In the process of collecting the original gold Phaistos disc from Crete, Bryce has a sexual encounter with a princess. Despite his shyness and lack of experience, it was a necessary price to pay to retrieve the last item on the pendant. The collecting process is becoming more of a test of survival. John, Affan and Babette, are all seriously wounded during their time at Pozieres and their Fermilab shuttle is also damaged. They are helped by Ray Palmer, but it is only the beginning of their problems. With LHC and Fermilab now working together they discover that an international espionage group is operating out of the Fermilab site. There has been a security breech and a serious infiltration at the highest levels of the Fermilab management. Billions of dollars in contributions had already been syphoned off. This group had also replaced key personnel with doubles as they are systematically eliminated. It is up to Bryce to put an end to their plan.

Summary:

So my only protection is a kindergarten teacher and a ninety-eight-pound female minister....And they don't even believe I'm in danger. As Bethany approaches her thirteenth birthday, her parents begin acting more oddly than usual: Her mother cries constantly, and her father barely lets Bethany out of his sight. Then one morning he hustles the entire family into the car, drives across several state lines -- and leaves Bethany with an aunt she never knew existed. Bethany has no idea what's going on. She's worried that her mom and dad are running from some kind of trouble, but she can't find out because they won't tell her where they are going. Bethany's only clue is a few words she overheard her father tell her aunt Myrlie: "She doesn't know anything about Elizabeth." But Aunt Myrlie won't tell Bethany who Elizabeth is, and she won't explain why people in her small town react to Bethany as if they've seen a ghost. The mystery intensifies when Bethany gets a package from her father containing four different birth certificates from four states, with four different last names -- and thousands of dollars in cash. And when a strange man shows up asking questions, Bethany realizes she's not the only one who's desperate to unravel the secrets of her past. In this exhilarating thriller, Margaret Peterson Haddix crafts a taut story so full of twists and turns, readers will be gripped until the startling conclusion.
