New Large Print Books:

“Lookout Hill,” by Ralph Cotton – Arizona Ranger Sam Burrack is deep in Old Mexico, tracking two of the most heinous outlaws it’s ever been his bad luck to track. Hodding “Hot Aces” Siebert and Bobby Hugh Bellibar have nine bank robberies, three train hijackings, and more than a dozen payroll raids to their names. And they’ve left an undertaker’s fortune in dead bodies all along the border country. But there’s no honor among thieves. When the pair is caught in a tight spot, Bellibar turns on his old pal Siebert like a snake, sparking a blood feud that makes it even more dangerous for Burrack to bring them in – and nearly impossible for him to get out alive.

“Picture Perfect,” by Janice Thompson – Feisty wedding photographer, Hannah McDermott, has dealt with her share of difficult brides. But none can compare to the ultimate Bridezilla she’s dealing with now. Still, she’s trying desperately to impress Bella Neeley, Galveston Island’s most sought-after wedding planner, so she can take the top spot in Bella’s list of recommended photographers – a spot currently occupied by her arch-rival, Drew Kincaid. What she doesn’t count on, however, is falling head over feels for the competition.

“Courting Cate,” by Leslie Gould – In Paradise, Pennsylvania, Cate Miller is known more for her sharp tongue and fiery temper than her striking appearance. Her sweet and flirty sister, Betsy, on the other hand, seems to have attracted most of the bachelors in Lancaster County! However, the sisters’wealthy father has made one hard-and-fast rule: older Cate must marry first, before younger Betsy can even start courting. Unfortunately, untamable Cate has driven away every suitor – until Pete Treger comes to town, that is. Prodded by the men of the area, Pete turns his attention to winning Cate’s hand. But is his interest true or is there a scheme at play?
