"Badlands" by C.J. Box 

 On Sale July 28th



After the events of 2014's "The Highway", Cassie Dewell leaves behind dark memories of Montana, the death of her partner, and the escape of the mass murderer known as the Lizard King, to take a new job as a special investigator in the Grimstad, ND, police department. Thanks to hydraulic fracture drilling, or fracking, Grimstad has been transformed into an oil boomtown with the social problems of any large city. Cassie is quickly embroiled in the investigation of a car crash, drugs, a gang war, and corrupt police officers. It is her job to determine how all these are tied together and what part a 12-year-old special-needs boy named Kyle plays in the tangled story. Cassie's keen observations, nerves of steel, and Kyle's bravery solve the mystery and bring a new beginning for both Cassie and Kyle. As for the Lizard King, the hunt continues. Keep an eye open out there. VERDICT Fracking brings new energy to the surface, and Box does the same with another intriguing character whom Joe Pickett fans will want to know better. Suspenseful--you can't put it down. [See Prepub Alert, 2/2/15; 250,000-copy printing; library marketing.]--Patricia Ann Owens, formerly with Illinois Eastern Community Colls., Mt.

Book Signing for "Dance With the Devil"

by J.D. March on Tuesday July 8th 11:00 am-1:00 pm

Johnny Fierro's a gunfighter, maybe the best. He's hunted trouble and a reputation all his life. But the killings and the range wars have worn him out and brought him to a point where he would welcome death - until he hears that his estranged and hated father faces a battle to hold onto his land in the Cimarron Valley. Fierro has sworn to kill his father and this is too good an opportunity to miss. What he hasn't bargained for is a share of the ranch, or a brother he never knew existed. While his upright, authoritarian father and Harvard-educated brother struggle to come to terms with his violent past and vicious reputation, Fierro wrestles with the unwelcome realization that his mother didn't tell him the whole story about the past. He doesn't know what to believe, but he has to make a choice when the bullets start flying.

Adventurer and journalist JD March has tracked leopards in the Masai Mara, skied competitively, ridden to hounds, paddled dugout canoes on the Indian Ocean, and is an accomplished sailor. JD has lived in a series of unusual homes including a haunted 12th century house in Cornwall in Britain and a chalet in the French Alps. But a lifelong passion for the old west means JD is happiest in the saddle, rounding up cattle on the Bighorn Mountains in Wyoming.


 Book Signing for "Palm Avenue" by Rob Neighbors

Saturday July 11th 1:00-3:00 pm

Every year thousands of naive young women arrive in Los Angeles, full of ambition and dreams of stardom. Few realize that there is a steep price of admission into the club that involves flesh, blood, and large chunks of soul. Ashley Duncan flees her small Kansas hometown and family farm to pursue the Hollywood dream. She takes a crash course on how to succeed in Tinseltown, trading on her looks and sexuality. An agent she meets sums it up this way, "I'll be honest with you, Ashley. You have the look that we're looking for. You definitely have the look, but a lot of girls have that. A lot of girls have talent. The question is, do you have everything else it takes? Do you have the temperament, the guile, the cajones, to do what it takes?" Ashley decides early on, she will do whatever is necessary. Things get more complicated when Ashley's high school sweetheart, Brady, arrives in LA, in a desperate attempt to win her back. Ashley and Brady don't realize it, but they are now guests of that infamous California hotel, where you can check out, but you can never leave.

  Rob Neighbors grew up in Sheridan, Wyoming, near the base of the beautiful Big Horn Mountains. Hollywood was calling him from an early age, and he wrote his first screenplay when he was in the third grade. As he grew older, he stuffed all of those aspirations down and dismissed them as childish dreams. Everything changed when a production company was in Sheridan filming a movie, and Neighbors met actor Ben Johnson, who encouraged him to go for his dream. Neighbors gambled with destiny and left a promising career in his family's business to attend college at Montana State University in Bozeman, where he majored in film and television production. Before he graduated, Neighbors had production companies in Los Angeles courting him as a result of a screenplay he wrote. The film was never made, but he was hired to write several screenplays, and some were produced with major stars, including Dennis Hopper, Michael Madsen, and Charles Durning. Life in Los Angeles and the movie business can be full of diversions and disappointments, and Neighbors succumbed to some of them. He battled alcohol and drug addiction and remained on the sidelines for over fifteen years. He is now clean and sober and writing again. Palm Avenue is his first novel.

Book Signing for "Alive" by Candee Fultz

Friday July 31st 1:00-3:00 pm

"What do you get when you combine Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol, Back to the Future, and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation?" You get Marie Gibbons, who's been given the opportunity to influence her past, as her present self, gathering evidence that she hopes will right the wrongs that she, her mother, and her brother endured.

In this fictionalized autobiography of the author's life, Alive will have you cheering for Marie as she chases the justice that she was robbed of as a child. Given the opportunity to relive some of her past memories, as well as visit her mother's life prior to her own birth, Marie is torn by wanting to change every bad moment in an effort to give her family just a little happiness, or to keep the lessons she learned through some of those hard times.

Recipe Corner

Recipe taken from "Donna Bell's Bake Shop" by Pauley Perrette, Darren Greenblatt, and Matthew Sandusky


Champagne Cake with Strawberry Buttercream Frosting
serves 8 to 10
Nonstick cooking spray
4 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter
3 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
7 large egg whites
2 cups Brut champagne
Buttercream Frosting
10 fresh strawberries

Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray three 9-inch round cake pans with cooking spray. Cut rounds of parchment paper to fit the pans, place in the pans, and spray the parchment with cooking spray. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed for 1 minute. Increase speed to high and beat until light and fluffy, about 4 more minutes. Add the sour cream and vanilla and beat to combine. Add the whole egg and egg whites, one at a time, beating after each addition. On low speed, beat in the flour mixture alternately with the champagne one-third at a time, starting with the flour and ending with the champagne. Beat to combine after each addition. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared pans. Smooth the tops. Bake until a knife inserted in the centers comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Let the cakes cool in the pans for 5 minutes. Remove from the pans and transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Finely chop 6 of the strawberries and stir into the Buttercream Frosting. Mix well. Place one cake layer on a serving plate. Place one-quarter of the buttercream in the center of the cake, and then spread it out to the edges. Repeat with the second and third layers. Frost the sides with the remaining buttercream. Slice the remaining 4 strawberries in half and use to garnish the cake.

Buttercream Frosting

2 cups (4 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
5 cups sifted confectioners' sugar

In a large bowl, beat the butter with the paddle blade of an electric mixer on medium speed. Add the vanilla and salt and mix until smooth. Add the confections' sugar, one cup at a time, on low speed; beat to incorporate. Increase the speed to high, and beat until smooth after each addition. Scrape the bowl as needed.
