Join us when we host C.J. Box for a book signing for "Vicious Circle". 
 You won't be disappointed with this new story.

"The past comes back to haunt game warden Joe Pickett and his family with devastating effect ... The plane circled in the dark. Joe Pickett could just make out down below a figure in the snow and timber, and then three other figures closing in. There was nothing he could do about it. And, Joe knew that he might be their next target. The Cates family had always been a bad lot. Game warden Joe Pickett had been able to strike a fierce blow against them when the life of his daughter April had been endangered, but he'd always wondered if there'd be a day of reckoning. He's not wondering any longer. Joe knows they're coming after him and his family now. He has his friend Nate by his side, but will that be enough this time? All he can do is prepare, and wait for them to make the first move"--

  A little something for your Easter brunch

Bacon-Caramel Rolls
(taken from Better Homes & Gardens
"13 X 9 the Pan that Can")

Prep 40 minutes   Rise 1 hour
Bake 15 minutes at 400F + 25 minutes at 375F  Cool 5 minutes

8 slices bacon
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup light-color corn syrup
3/4 cup chopped pecans
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
2 16-oz. loaves frozen white bread dough or sweet roll dough, thawed
6 Tbsp. butter, softened
3/4 cup raisins (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a 15x10-inch baking pan with foil. Lay bacon in pan in a single layer. bake about 15 minutes or until crisp; drain on paper towels.
 Coarsely chop bacon.
2. Grease a 13x9-inch baking pan. In a medium bowl stir together melted butter, the 3/4 cup brown sugar, and the corn syrup. Stir in pecans and half the chopped bacon.
Spread mixture in prepared pan.
3. Stir together the 2/3 cup brown sugar and the cinnamon. On a lightly floured surface, roll each loaf of dough into a 12x8-inch rectangle, stopping to let dough relax while rolling, if needed. Spread softened butter over dough rectangles. Sprinkle with brown sugar-cinnamon mixture, the remaining bacon, and, if desired, raisins.
4. Starting from a long side, roll up each rectangle into a spiral. Pinch dough to seal seams. Slice each roll into eight pieces. Arrange pieces in the prepared pan. Cover; let rise in a warm place until nearly double in size (about 1 hour).
5. Preheat oven to 375F. Bake 25-30 minutes or until rolls are golden brown and sound hollow when gently tapped. If needed, cover rolls loosely with foil the last 10 minutes of baking to prevent overbrowning. Cool in pan on a wire rack 5 minutes.
Invert rolls onto a platter. Serve warm.
  




I'm looking forward to reading the newest mystery from Anne Hillerman.
 It will release on Tuesday, April 11th




A deadly bombing takes Navajo Tribal cops Bernadette Manuelito, Jim Chee, and their mentor, the legendary Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, back into the past to find a vengeful killer in this riveting Southwestern mystery from the bestselling author of Spider Woman's Daughter and Rock with Wings.
When a car bomb kills a young man in the Shiprock High School parking lot, Officer Bernadette Manuelito discovers that the intended victim was a mediator for a multi-million-dollar development planned at the Grand Canyon.
But what seems like an act of ecoterrorism turns out to be something far more nefarious and complex. Piecing together the clues, Bernadette and her husband, Sergeant Jim Chee, uncover a scheme to disrupt the negotiations and inflame tensions between the Hopi and Dine tribes.
Retired Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn has seen just about everything in his long career. As the tribal police's investigation unfolds, he begins to suspect that the bombing may be linked to a cold case he handled years ago. As he, Bernadette, and Chee carefully pull away the layers behind the crime, they make a disturbing discovery: a meticulous and very patient killer with a long-simmering plan of revenge.
Writing with a clarity and grace that is all her own, Anne Hillerman depicts the beauty and mystery of Navajo Country and the rituals, myths, and customs of its people in a mystery that builds on and complements the beloved, bestselling mysteries of her acclaimed father, Tony Hillerman.
