Toucan keep a secret, if one of them is dead. Meg Langslow is at Trinity Episcopal Church locking up after an event and checking on the toucan her friend Rev. Robyn Smith is fostering in her office. When she investigates the sound of hammering in the columbarium (the underground crypt where cremated remains are buried), Meg finds the murdered body of an elderly parishioner. Several niches have been chiseled open; several urns knocked out; and amid the spilled ashes is a gold ring with a huge red stone. The curmudgeonly victim had become disgruntled with the church and ranted all over town about taking back his wife's ashes. Did someone who had it in for him follow him to the columbarium? Or was the motive grave robbery? Or did he see someone breaking in and investigate? Why was the ruby left behind? While Chief Burke investigates the murder, Robyn recruits Meg to contact the families of the people whose ashes were disturbed. While doing so, Meg learns many secrets about Caerphilly's history—and finds that the toucan may play a role in unmasking the killer. Clues and events indicate that a thief broke into the church to steal the toucan the night of the murder, so Meg decides to set a trap for the would-be toucan thief—who might also be the killer. Toucan Keep a Secret is the twenty-third book in New York Times bestselling author Donna Andrews' hilarious Mag Langslow mystery series.

30% OF THE AUTHOR'S ROYALTIES WILL BE DONATED TO A RAIN FOREST CONSERVATION ORGANIZATION OR A FOUNDATION THAT SUPPORTS AND PROVIDES SUPPLIES FOR IMPOVERISHED SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES IN THE AMAZON. Mariposa goes to the Amazon to visit her uncle, T'o Toucan, who is a naturalist and guide in the rain forest. She wonders why she ends up going with her Papa on the trip to northern Peru, instead of her brother. She would have preferred staying home in Los Angeles to dance to pop music with her best friend, Monica. Mariposa and Papa stay in her uncle's river village house on stilts. Her uncle, T'o Toucan, is full of silly jokes, but he is also a serious environmentalist who is worried about the fate of global forests and indigenous people. Mariposa makes friends with some very poor village children - Roberto, Celia, and Norma. She has adventures learning about blow guns, trading at a village, fishing for piranhas, and helping scientists record botanical data on a canopy walkway. One special day a shaman tells her that with the spirit of the rain forest she could bring something back home and that she could dance for the forest. She wonders what he means. T'o Toucan takes her to look for pink dolphins, to study birds with an ornithologist, and hosts a village celebration and dance to celebrate their visit. On the airplane going home she talks to a tribal Amazonian who is on his way to a global summit to complain about rain forest destruction. That conversation helps her to make a decision. When Mariposa goes back home to Los Angeles, she and Monica ask the principal if they can hold a school dance to raise money for rain forest preservation. Mariposa speaks at a school assembly and the science club helps to advertise the project. They have a very successful, festive "Rain Forest Dance" and raise a few hundred dollars. Mariposa learns that children can speak up, take action to save the earth's ecosystems, and help poor children who need books and shoes.

‘Wow!!... I was left quite breathless… Kept me gripped.’ Book Reviews by Shalini Eddie stands at his door anxiously waiting for her to arrive, touching the box in his pocket for luck. He doesn’t hear the footsteps behind him until it’s too late… Detective Finnegan Beck is called to a violent crime scene at a remote house near the rural Irish town of Cross Beg, where a dog lies whimpering beside his beloved owner’s body. At first it looks like a burglary gone wrong. But Beck spots something his colleagues didn’t. The victim, Eddie Kavanagh, was wearing his smartest clothes. He’d brushed his hair. And, on closer inspection, a small velvet box containing an engagement ring is discovered in his pocket, along with a letter to a nameless woman, which seems to suggest she’s in danger. Those who knew Eddie have no idea about a female friend though – there’s been no one in his life since a girl who he’d loved and who’d broken his heart decades before. So who was the woman Eddie was waiting for? And did his connection with her ultimately lead to his murder? When a beautiful young woman is then found beaten to death, murdered exactly as Eddie had been, Beck has to ask – is the danger over? Or is it just beginning? An absolutely addictive and atmospheric crime novel that will leave you gasping for breath.

In her sweeping debut novel, Elizabeth J. Church takes us from the World War II years in Chicago to the vast sun-parched canyons of New Mexico in the 1970s as we follow the journey of a driven, spirited young woman, Meridian Wallace, whose scientific ambitions are subverted by the expectations of her era. In 1941, at seventeen years old, Meridian begins her ornithology studies at the University of Chicago. She is soon drawn to Alden Whetstone, a brilliant, complicated physics professor who opens her eyes to the fundamentals and poetry of his field, the beauty of motion, space and time, the delicate balance of force and energy that allows a bird to fly. Entranced and in love, Meridian defers her own career path and follows Alden west to Los Alamos, where he is engaged in a secret government project (later known to be the atomic bomb). In married life, though, she feels lost and left behind. She channels her academic ambitions into studying a particular family of crows, whose free life and companionship are the very things that seem beyond her reach. There in her canyons, years later at the dawn of the 1970s, with counterculture youth filling the streets and protests against the war rupturing college campuses across the country, Meridian meets Clay, a young geologist and veteran of the Vietnam War, and together they seek ways to mend what the world has broken. Exquisitely capturing the claustrophobic eras of 1940s and 1950s America, The Atomic Weight of Love also examines the changing roles of women during the decades that followed. And in Meridian Wallace we find an unforgettable heroine whose metamorphosis shows how the women’s movement opened up the world for a whole generation.
