Read This Now: The Index
What if there were an army of indie booksellers enthusiastically reading and reviewing practically every new book coming out in the next year, and what if the books they were the most excited about, the books they couldn't wait to push into their customers' hands with a breathless "You've GOT to read this!" (virtually or otherwise), the ones with all the nine- and ten-star ratings were carefully curated and collected in a handy list? Well, all we can say is...KEEP READING!
The wait is over. Grab this fourth and final book in the Three Times Lucky group (series?) and put it in the hands of every young reader. Desperado Detectives Mo, Dale and Harm race a scheming out-of-towner to locate Blackbeard's buried treasure, but for Mo the real find may be clues to her Upstream Mother. In this novel that celebrates friends, family and home, it is the lovable characters who will live in our hearts for a long time. True treasure.
The Law of Finders Keepers by Sheila Turnage ($16.99*, Kathy Dawson Books), recommended by Quail Ridge Books , Raleigh, NC.
