Blue Heaven by Jadette Paige: “Worshiped all his life, the Godchild is shocked by the stranger who dares lay hands on him, even if it is to save him from assassins. With a different name given by his new ally, Blue is freed from the constraints of the holy order for the first time. He revels in the extraordinary experiences opening to him, then in the passion that sparks between him and the hard-edged, oddly gentle Stryver.” (December 2010)

Playdate by Thelma Adams: “Set in suburban California, this witty debut novel features bed-hopping parents who get into more trouble (and have more fun) than their kids.” (January 2011)

The Epidemic: A Collision of Power, Privilege, and Public Health by David DeKok: “One of the last and worst typhoid epidemics in America was in Ithaca, New York, in 1903. At least 85 people died, including 29 Cornell University students. Nearly 1,300 people became ill in the town of 13,000. Ithaca, despite having more physicians per capita than New York City or any other town in New York, was overwhelmed.” (February 2011)
