Mandy Sue Day

by Roberta Karim

From the Book jacket: The harvest is in, and the Indian summer air is crisp and clear. As a reward for hard work, Papa and Mama are giving each of their children a whole day free from chores to spend any way they want. This perfect day is Mandy Sue's very own to spend with her best friend: her horse Ben. Together they drink in the sounds, tastes, smells, and feel of autumn as they trot through the cool woods and gallop across the plain. And when they get home, there's a mouth-watering treat-Mama's freshly baked donuts. Mandy Sue Day, with Roberta Karim's sprightly, poetic language, complemented by Karen Ritz's vivid illustrations, tells of a blind girl's love for her horse and the exuberance and closeness that only two can share. When Roberta Karim was six, she won a pony. On carefree afternoons she brushed, rode, and napped on her pony (and later her horse). On not-so-carefree Saturdays she cleaned out the stable. Recalling that time, Ms. Karim realized that her memories were based not just on seeing, but on the sounds, smells, tastes, and feel of a day spent with her horse. From that idea came the inspiration for Mandy Sue Day. Roberta Karim earned her B.A. from Ohio Wesleyan University and her M.A. from Purdue University. She lives in Bay Village, Ohio, with her husband and two young sons. Karen Ritz earned a degree in children's literature and illustration from the University of Minnesota. She has illustrated over twenty children's books, including Earthquake in the Third Grade by Laurie Myers. Ms. Ritz lives in St. Paul, Minnesota.

The Mane Squeeze

by Shelly Laurenston

In Shelly Laurenston's laugh-out-loud funny, deliciously sexy novel, a shape-shifting Grizzly and a single dangerous feline collide--and discover untamed, unstoppable attraction. . . Growing up on the tough Philly streets, Gwen O'Neill has learned how to fend for herself. But what is she supposed to do with a nice, suburban Jersey boy in the form of a massive Grizzly shifter? Especially one with a rather unhealthy fetish for honey, moose, and. . . uh. . . well, her. Yet despite his menacing ursine growl and four-inch claws, Gwen finds Lachlan "Lock" MacRyrie cute and really sweet. He actually watches out for her, protects her, and unlike the rest of her out-of-control family manages not to morbidly embarrass her. Too bad cats don't believe in forever. At nearly seven feet tall, Lock is used to people responding to him in two ways: screaming and running away. Gwen--half lioness, half tigress, all kick-ass--does neither. She's sexy beyond belief and smart as hell, but she's a born protector. Watching out for the family and friends closest to her but missing the fact that she's being stalked by a murderous enemy who doesn't like hybrids. . . and absolutely hates Gwen. Lock probably shouldn't get involved, but he will. Why? Because this is Gwen--and no matter what the hissing, roaring, drape destroying feline says about not being ready to settle down, Lock knows he can't simply walk away. Not when she's come to mean absolutely everything to him.

Manhattan Is My Beat (Rune #1)

by Jeffery Deaver

Five feet two inches of slick repartee, near-purple hair, and poetic imagination, twenty-year-old Rune hasn't been in Manhattan for very long. But she's crafty enough to have found a squatter's paradise in an empty TriBeCa loft, and a video store job that feeds her passion for old movies. It's a passion she shares with her favorite customer, Mr. Kelly, a lonely old man who rents the same video over and over. The flick is a noir classic based on a real-life unsolved bank heist and a million missing dollars. It's called Manhattan Is My Beat. That's the tape Rune is picking up from Mr. Kelly's shabby apartment when she finds him shot to death. The police suspect a robbery gone wrong, but Rune is certain the key to solving the murder is hidden somewhere in the hazy, black-and-white frames of Mr. Kelly's beloved movie. But as Rune hits the mean streets of New York to find answers, she gets caught up in a dangerous adventure more chilling than anything Hollywood could dream up. As her story draws to its terrifying conclusion, Rune's final close-up may include the killer of a co-star.

Manhattan Monologues

by Louis Auchincloss

He is our sublime master of manners, our "most astute observer of moral paradox among the affluent" (Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.), and "one of the essential American writers" (Kirkus). Now, in his fifty-seventh book, Louis Auchincloss delivers a brilliant collection of ten new, previously unpublished, stories; once again, he unfailingly "voices truths with elegant precision" (Publishers Weekly). MANHATTAN MONOLOGUES charts a colorful New York century through a series of personal accounts from the rarefied circle that fills Auchincloss's best short fiction. Here are characters who confidently finesse their way through society's uppermost tiers and yet are just as easily undone by the smallest upset in a day. Like all of Auchincloss's richest creations, they bump up against their consciences, with often surprising results. What, for instance, is a woman to do when she must choose between true love and high society when making a marriage? How can a man stay true to himself, his family, and his country when it goes to war? How can a determined marriage broker salvage matters when the young man she has so painstakingly steered toward a love match becomes charmed by another woman? These tales, and many more, fashion a glamorous, yet all too human, societal portrait -- from the aristocratic loyalties of the early twentieth century to the complicated twists of modern-day mergers and acquisitions. MANHATTAN MONOLOGUES is Louis Auchincloss at his most clever, his most discerning, his best.
