From New York Times best-selling author Penelope Douglas comes the latest new adult romance with a bit of everything...friends to lovers, enemies to lovers, and a somewhat interesting use of public places. Misha I can´t help but smile at the lyrics in her letter. She misses me. In fifth grade my teacher set us up with pen pals from a different school. Thinking I was a girl, with a name like Misha, the other teacher paired me up with her student Ryen. My teacher, believing Ryen was a boy like me, agreed. It didn´t take long for us to figure out the mistake. And in no time at all, we were arguing about everything. The best take-out pizza. Android vs. iPhone. Whether or not Eminem is the greatest rapper ever... And that was the start. For the next seven years, it was us. Her letters are always on black paper with silver writing. Sometimes there´s one a week or three in a day, but I need them. She´s the only one who keeps me on track, talks me down, and accepts everything I am. We had only three rules. No social media, no phone numbers, no pictures. We had a good thing going. Why ruin it? Until I run across a photo of a girl online. Name´s Ryen, loves Gallo´s pizza, and worships her iPhone. What are the chances? F--k it. I need to meet her. I just don´t expect to hate what I find. Ryen He hasn´t written in three months. Something´s wrong. Did he die? Get arrested? Knowing Misha, neither would be a stretch. Without him around, I´m going crazy. I need to know someone is listening. It´s my own fault. I should´ve gotten his phone number or picture or something. He could be gone forever. Or right under my nose, and I wouldn´t even know it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Laurie Catherine Winkel, Matthew Holland.

Anna Seghers´s Transit is an existential, political, literary thriller that explores the agonies of boredom, the vitality of storytelling, and the plight of the exile with extraordinary compassion and insight. Having escaped from a Nazi concentration camp in Germany in 1937, and later a camp in Rouen, the nameless twenty-seven-year-old German narrator of Seghers´s multilayered masterpiece ends up in the dusty seaport of Marseille. Along the way he is asked to deliver a letter to a man named Weidel in Paris and discovers Weidel has committed suicide, leaving behind a suitcase containing letters and the manuscript of a novel. As he makes his way to Marseille to find Weidel´s widow, the narrator assumes the identity of a refugee named Seidler, though the authorities think he is really Weidel. There in the giant waiting room of Marseille, the narrator converses with the refugees, listening to their stories over pizza and wine, while also gradually piecing together the story of Weidel, whose manuscript has shattered the narrator´s ´´deathly boredom,´´ bringing him to a deeper awareness of the transitory world the refugees inhabit as they wait and wait for that most precious of possessions: transit papers.

Stephanie Gallagher had a brilliant career as a journalist until a devastating betrayal upended her life. Now she´s back in her hometown of Forsyth, Texas, working for the local paper and trying to get back on track. But doing the cutting-edge investigative work that won her a Pulitzer will be difficult in sleepy Forsyth. Her most exciting story is an ongoing series of petty thefts with a peculiar twist: the thief always leaves some cash behind for the victims. Stephanie nicknames the thief the ‘Reluctant Robber,´ speculating the perp is a Forsyth resident forced to crime by the economic downturn. Then one night, the Reluctant Robber strikes again, but this time, the Robber leaves more than just cash to be found. Two bodies. Local policeman Mick McKay finds a hospice worker and a pizza delivery boy sprawled on the lawn, shot execution-style. Did Stephanie´s sympathetic reporting encourage the Robber? Mick thinks so. Guilty and disgusted with the sensationalist coverage, Stephanie decides to write in-depth profiles of the victims, by all appearances, strangers in the wrong place at the wrong time. But as she starts to investigate, Stephanie discovers a hidden connection between the two victims: a recently deceased hospice patient, Harlan Tucker. Is Mick right that the killings were random? Or were the victims more closely connected than anyone suspected? And can Mick and Stephanie untangle the mystery before the Reluctant Robber strikes again? 1. Language: English.
