Wyoming Winter Rescue

Purchase this series opener where Rushdan’s (An Operative’s Last Stand) previous books have been popular.

Eagle Mountain Cliffhanger

First in a new series, this slow-burn romance from Myers (Alpha Tracker) mostly falls flat, with little chemistry between Hannah and Jake.

Small Town Vanishing

Helm’s latest (after The Lost Hart Triplet) is the highlight of this month’s offerings.

Police Dog Procedural

Wrapping up the multi-author “K-9s on Patrol” series after Scent Detection by Leslie Marshman, this entry, which can be saccharine and overdramatic, isn’t essential.

Conard County: Christmas Crime Spree

With a unique premise and engaging characters, the latest in this long-running series from Lee (Conard County: Mistaken Identity) is an excellent addition to a collection and will delight readers.

Presumed Dead

Well-written and with an intriguing plot, libraries can move this book from Severn (Dead on Arrival) towards the top of their list of potential Harlequins to buy.

Killer in the Heartland

The pacing of this story feels uneven, since the threats to Mary’s life are resolved quite a bit earlier than her relationship with Lucas. An implausible antagonist and a serial killer that feels more cartoonish than truly terrifying, combine to make this first book in Cassidy’s (Gunsmoke in the Grassland) new series, “The Scarecrow Murders,” a less-than-satisfying read.

Six Days To Live

Despite the tension its title promises, Dodson (King of Hyde Park) never quite delivers on its pulse-pounding premise. The bad guys feel like little more than caricatures, and the bulk of the heroine’s work to save the hero appears off page. Uneven pacing makes this one more frustrating than satisfying to read.

Shielding Colton’s Witness

This is the 10th book in the multiauthor “Coltons of Colorado” series after Colton’s Rogue Investigation by Jennifer D. Bokal. Both the romance and the suspense of this story feel wildly implausible, and since the overarching series plotline isn’t really advanced here, this installment would be a safe one to skip.
