After the Flood by Kassandra Montag

Image
In Montag's imagining of the world after a great flood, there are only a few remaining places on earth that aren't oceans. Mountaintops visible above the water line are all that remain. In this new world are groups of raiders each trying to take control and colonize in strong-arm violent ways. For Myra and her daughter Pearl living on a family boat and fishing as a small means of support, it means not trusting anyone.
This could be the new dystopian novel of the year! I enjoyed it very much.

See That My Grave is Kept Clean by Bart Paul

Image
The character Tommy Smith, building a house in the Sierra's and starting a business as an outfitter for folks who want to venture into the wilderness, finds himself in the middle of a missing local banker's plan to save her family ranch gone very bad!
A quick western for those who like C.J. Box's Pickett novels.

What Rose Forgot by Nevada Barr

Image
68 year old Rose finds herself drugged, labeled as having Alzheimer's, and in a nursing home. She escapes, and with the help of her 14 yr. old granddaughter tries to find out who is trying to get rid of her to get her recently deceased husband's money. A madcap mystery. Quite fun!
