Summer is on the Way! Grab a book and go.
Soon enough it’ll be time to head to the beach or on a hike to the middle of nowhere and you’ll want to take some reading material with you.
Might we suggest something from our summer line? We’ve got new installments in popular series from Reed Farrel Coleman and Victoria Houston. Reed’s new book, Onion Street was named to Publishers Weekly’s “Best Summer Reads 2013″ list. So if you don’t want to take our word for it, listen to them.
In July we’ll be releasing a powerful debut novel, Graphic the Valley by Peter Brown Hoffmeister. Set entirely in the Yosemite Valley, it’s the perfect book for a trip to any of the country’s magical National Parks and a vivid reminder of how important it is to protect them.
Reed Farrel Coleman’s Moe Prager mystery titles have been nominated for and won most of the awards given to crime fiction. Onion Street, the eighth installment in the series, finds a much younger Moe in college investigating the brutal beating of his girlfriend. From there, things spiral into graver dangers for people in Moe’s life.
“The twists and turns are unpredictable, but Coleman pulls everything together by the end.” -Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Tenaya has never left the Valley. He was born in a car by the Merced River, and grew up in a hidden camp with his parents, surviving on fish, acorns, and unfinished food thrown away by the park’s millions of tourists. But despite its splendor, Tenaya’s Yosemite is a visceral place of opposites, at once beautiful, dangerous, and violent. When he meets Lucy, a young woman from the south side of the park, Tenaya must choose between this new relationship and the Valley, terrorism and legend, the sacred versus the material.
