An Irish Doctor in Love and at Sea: An Irish Country Novel
Before Dr. Fingal Flahertie O’Reilly became the village doctor of Ballybucklebo, Ireland, he was a young surgeon-lieutenant in the British Navy aboard the HMS Warspite during World War II. In this latest addition to Taylor’s popular Irish Country series (after An Irish Doctor in Peace and at War, 2014), Dr. O’Reilly and his wife Kitty are enjoying their comfortable life in the village when an event commemorating the war enables him to revisit this exciting chapter in his life, especially with his first love, Deirdre. Masterfully shifting between both past and present, fans will be delighted to catch up with Fingal and Kitty once again.
Ghost to the Rescue: A Bailey Ruth Ghost Novel
Hart’s third mystery featuring ghostly detective Bailey Ruth Raeburn (after Ghost Wanted, 2014) sends spirit Bailey to Adelaide, Oklahoma to help struggling single mother and writer, Deidre Davenport. While working to support her children, she’s got her hopes set on a faculty position in Goddard College’s English department. At a writer’s conference, Deidre spurns the advances of Professor Jay Knox, who just so happens to decide who gets the job at Goddard. When Knox winds up dead and Deidre’s fingerprints are on the murder weapon, it’s up to Bailey to find out who knocked off Knox.
Sandford sets aside his Lucas Davenport series (Gathering Prey, 2015) to pen this sci-fi thriller with photographer Ctein. The year is 2066, and a Caltech student notices that an object approaching Saturn is decelerating like a spaceship rather than accelerating like a meteor. Something out there obviously has a technology way ahead of ours, and the country that can mount an expedition to Saturn first and engage the object will gain superiority for decades to come. When China learns of this alien craft, the race is on, and “the suspense and the science keep the pages turning.” (Booklist)
