The Exchange (Hobby Lobby Mysteries Book 1) (affiliate link)
Battered physically and psychologically in the wake of a horrific car accident, Erika Wernick takes a leave from her post as a reporter at the Seattle Times to return home to Big Bear Lake to recover.
Intent on nothing more than holing up in the mountains to let herself mend, she is begrudgingly pulled along by her uncle to join him and his friends for their morning coffee at the local shop.
Thinking it is nothing more than a few recent retirees in need of filling the time, it isn’t until she arrives that she discovers the gathering is of a much different nature. Joining her uncle, the former town sheriff, is Craig Cobb, a past detective with LAPD, and Lou Tobias, a medical examiner from nearby Riverside. Together, the three men form the Hobby Lobby, a term of affection given to the group that meets each morning to help each other through the various hobby cases each picked up over the course of their careers.

A Crack in Everything (Cracks Book 1) (affiliate link)
Life used to be simple. I was a city girl with humble dreams. Then Dylan O’Dea broke into my flat, held me against the wall and told me to stay quiet.
It was like in the movies, where the universe zeros in on a single scene. I looked into his eyes and knew he was going to change me.
For Dylan, the sky was always falling. He showed me how our world is a contradiction of beauty and ugliness. How we choose to ignore the awful and gloss over it with the palatable. How you need just a tiny drop of something unsavoury to create every great scent.
Pretty deep for a pair of teenagers living in a block of council flats in inner city Dublin, right? Probably. But we weren’t typical. We both had our obsessions. Mine was growing things, Dylan’s was scent. He taught me how to use my nose, and I introduced him to the magic of flowers. I had no idea that one day he’d build an empire from what we started together.
Stolen Summer (affiliate link)
I should be traveling around Europe this summer.
Instead I’m held captive by a hot doctor.
My father has always been a controlling jerk, but shutting me away in some institute for ‘behavioral issues’? That’s a new low.
I don’t care if the head doctor is the most gorgeous man I’ve ever seen. No, I don’t care that his stern, clipped words make me shiver deep inside.
I’m not crazy, and I’m blowing this joint—letting it all burn as I go.
My father? Dead to me.
My future? Up in smoke.
The doctor? Well, he’s in on this sham. Isn’t he?
Except his gaze is so steady. His voice is so warm.
And maybe I’m not all alone.

How To Speak Dog: Mastering the Art of Dog-Human Communication (affiliate link)
How to Speak Dog is one of the few books today that show us what dogs are trying to tell us, not just how we can control them.
At long last, dogs will know just how smart their owners can be. By unlocking the secrets of the hidden language of dogs, psychologist Stanley Coren allows us into the doggy dialogue, or “Doggish,” and makes effective communication a reality.
Drawing on substantial research in animal behavior, evolutionary biology, and years of personal experience, Coren demonstrates that the average house dog can understand language at about the level of a two-year-old human. While actual conversation of the sort Lassie seemed capable of in Hollywood mythmaking remains forever out of reach, Coren shows us that a great deal of real communication is possible beyond the giving and obeying of commands.
