disappears.
The Kiss Quotient, by Helen Hoang -
Stella  Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with
algorithms to predict customer purchases - a job that has given her more money than
she knows what to do with, and way less experience in the dating department than the
average thirty-year-old. It doesn't help that Stella has Asperger's and French kissing
reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs
lots of practice...with a professional. Before long, Stella not only learns to appreciate
kisses, but a pattern emerges convincing Stella that love is the best logic.  
The Book of M, by Feng Shepherd -
One afternoon at an outdoor market in India, a man's shadow disappears. He is only
the first. The phenomenon spreads like a plague, and while those afflicted gain a
strange new power, it comes at a horrible price: the loss of all their memories. Ory and
his wife Max have escaped the Forgetting so far by hiding in an abandoned hotel deep
in the woods. Their new life feels almost normal, until one day Max's shadow
disappears too.
Florida, by Lauren Groff-
Lauren Groff brings the reader into a physical world that is at once domestic and wild -
a place where the lizards of the natural world lie waiting to pounce, yet the greatest
threats and mysteries are still of an emotional, psychological nature. The stories in this
collection span characters, towns, decades, even centuries, but Florida - its
landscape, climate, history, and state of mind - becomes its gravitational center.
Line of Sight, by Mike Maden -
Twenty-six years ago, Dr. Cathy Ryan restored the eyesight of a young Bosnian girl
who had been injured during an attack in the Bosnian War. Today, her son, Jack Ryan
Jr. has agreed to track down the young woman and deliver a letter from his mother.
What he finds shocks them both. The helpless child has grown into a remarkable
woman. Jack finds himself drawn to both her and her country, but soon finds himself in
the crosshairs of the seething ethnic tensions and ancient blood feuds of the Balkans,
the region of Europe where empires go to die.
