HAIL MARY by C.M. Albrecht.
When retired cop Harry "Bulldog" Drummond dies, his free-spirited widow Mary, suddenly freed from the Bulldog's strait-laced ideas, recruits a couple of gals from her colorful past and the girls go on a tear. Meaning they create mayhem wherever they show up, much to the consternation of Mary's son, Creighton. Poor Cray just lost his job, he has a wife, two kids, two mortgages, a lazy dog and an old Chevy he was planning to replace with a new Jaguar. But the big raise he expected has vanished and so has his mother…along with his aging Chevy. To make matters worse, she doesn't even have a driver's license!

THE LIMITEDS, A Geocaching Mystery, Vol. 2. by Jennifer Kirsch
Fourteen-year-old, Luke, dreams of spending July at Camp Unlimited, where campers explore cave networks, set off fireworks in pyrotech workshops, and sleep in tree house hammocks. But to get into the camp, Luke needs to demonstrate excellence in a sport, the arts, or school. More likely, he’ll end up at SURF, his town’s rec camp, where athlete’s foot, mildew, and warts plague the gym, bedbugs and lice infest the couches, and clumps of hair make frequent appearances in the burgers. When weird blobs start popping up on Luke’s computer, he’s too busy trying to complete his Unlimited application to notice. But when the blobs start looking like a secret, uncharted geocache, he and his friend Gabe follow their trail, only to find themselves battling superbug viruses and navigating labyrinths while on a quest to save lives.

Hi Everyone,by your Official Bookstore Cat,and Gossip Columnist.
Hope you all had a wonderful HOLIDAY.
It was fairly quiet around here all week with Arline's head stuck in the computer and only the grinding of teeth for sound effects.
We had a nice Sunday visit with Sid and his lady. It rained, so they couldn't cut wheat. They were still cutting wheat yesterday and Kathy reports they had ripe tomatoes in the garden. Pop Pop always said ripe tomatoes by July 4th meant it was a good year.
Sure hope they get all the wheat cut soon, so they can get on with planting late beans.
Shelley is selling her house at auction so she can go back to her family in Canada. She has liberally mentioned it on Facebook and there's a picture and details on her page there.
We'll miss her a lot, but know she will be happier with her family around.
Don't forget to let me know what's going on with all of you.
Just send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with
"News for Jack"in the subject line, andI'll make sure it shows up here for all the world to see!
