The New York Times bestselling author of the Tradd Street novels explores a Southern family’s buried history, which will change the life of the woman who unearths it, secret by shattering secret. Two years after the death of her husband, Merritt Heyward receives unexpected news—Cal’s family home in Beaufort, South Carolina, bequeathed by his reclusive grandmother, now belongs to Merritt. In Beaufort, the secrets of Cal’s unspoken-of past reside among the pluff mud and jasmine of the ancestral Heyward home on the Bluff. This unknown legacy, now Merritt’s, will change and define her as she navigates her new life—a life complicated by the arrival of her too young stepmother and ten-year-old half brother. Soon, in this house of strangers, Merritt is forced into unraveling the Heyward family past as she faces her own fears and finds the healing she needs in the salt air of the Lowcountry.

Otto von Guericke has been called a neglected genius, overlooked by most modern scholars, scientists, and laymen. He wrote his Experimenta Nova in the seventeenth century in Latin, a dead language for the most part inaccessible to contemporary scientists. Thus isolated by the remoteness of his time and his means of communication, von Guericke has for many years been denied the recognition he deserves in the English speaking world. Indeed, the century in which he lived witnessed the invention of six important and valuable scientific instruments -- the microscope, the telescope, the pendulum clock, the barometer, the thermometer, and the air pump. Von Guericke was associated with the development of the last three of these; he also experimented with a rudimentary electric machine. Thus his Experimenta Nova was an important work, heralding the emerging empiricism of seventeenth century science, and merits this first English translation of von Guericke's magnus opus.

Alex Fitzpatrick, transplanted Jersey girl, has recently moved to Sherman, Nebraska and opened her own pub. Sherman is on the map, but sometimes Alex feels she's living in a time warp. The little boys have crew cuts and the residents smile and say hello to strangers. No one locks their doors. Then, on a cold October night, Book Ends, a wonderful Main Street bookstore, burns down with the owner, Alex's friend Barb, inside. As Alex grieves, her initial unease about the fire deepens into a conviction that it was arson. She digs into Barb's past and finds enemies there: an abusive ex-husband-a farmer embittered by their divorce-and closer to home, God's Warriors, a secretive local men's group: think Promise Keepers meets Ku Klux Klan. Becoming a detective was not Alex's game plan and sometimes she feels like a Miss Marple impersonator. But Alex is determined to discover who set the fire. Humor helps her keep things in perspective. She's also helped by her wisecracking friend Kathy (her instructor in Nebraska 101) and Chris, a beautiful photographer to whom she is secretly, unwillingly attracted. But someone wants them to stop, and pranks escalate into threats. To discover the arsonist, Alex must decode the often mystifying culture of Sherman, Nebraska, whose sunny surface conceals more darkness than she'd bargained for. Ultimately, her investigation will force her to confront this question: does a Jersey tomato belong in Nebraska dirt? This is the first book in the Alex Fitzpatrick mystery series.
