"Cantankerous octogenarian Paul Jacobson must solve a series of murders while struggling with the problems of his short-term memory loss.

Animal Attraction
by Jenna McClure
The Wild Rose Press, July 29, 2011
Kindle Edition $7.00

"Animal Attraction is a contemporary romance set in Colorado and features two spunky, loveable characters you can't help but love.

The heroine, Emmalyn Ashmore, is an environmental consultant who has not had the best luck with love in the past. Both cynical and optimistic, she vows never to fall in love again.

Fate, however, has other plans...as usual."

The Whitefire Crossing
by Courtney Schafer
Night Shade Books, August 1, 2011
ISBN: 978-1597802833
Trade Paperback $14,99

"Dev is a smuggler with the perfect cover. He's in high demand as a guide for the caravans that carry legitimate goods from the city of Ninavel into the country of Alathia. The route through the Whitefire Mountains is treacherous, and Dev is one of the few climbers who knows how to cross them safely. With his skill and connections, it's easy enough to slip contraband charms from Ninavel - where any magic is fair game, no matter how dark - into Alathia, where most magic is outlawed."

Buried by the Roan
by Mark Stevens
People's Press, August 9, 2011
ISBN: 978-0981781099
Trade paperback $14.95

"Fracking ruptures more than the earth.

The spark for Buried by the Roan is a dead hunter on the shore of Oyster Lake, deep in the Flat Tops Wilderness. Josh Keating's demise could be a case of a hunter drinking too much and stumbling late at night. Or it could be something much worse. Plenty of other strange things are going on to make hunting guide Allison Coil think the death is no accident."

Check out Mark's website for a longer synopsis and for a list of his upcoming appearances.

Hi Margot -- That's the great thing about RMFW -- the members are from all genres of fiction, and there's always something new coming out.

Janet -- I'm forcing myself to make more time to read. My TBR stack is once more out of control.

And this is just a sampling, Beth. I may have to do a second "What's New?" this month. :)
