Where Girls Dare
by Bhavna Chauhan
"So cadets, how's the morale?
"High Sir!?" we boys and girls screamed in unison.
"Should we tighten your training?"
"Yes sir, give us more!"
"Good!" he said. Then whispered to the chief instructor, "Tighten their discipline.
Toughen their schedule. I've never seen such happy cadets. This is not a party!"

They entered the Officers' Training Academy at Chennai, with a single desire-to be Officers in the army. Soon they discovered it was going to be an uphill task, literally! They fought, they bickered, they cried and they raised hell. But they also learned. They learned to take push-ups and punishments, front rolls and figures of eight, strict discipline and night marches in their stride.

Where Girls Dare is a hilarious and entertaining story of what happens when fifty-two lady cadets (LCs) train alongside four hundred Gentleman Cadets (GCs), some of whom believe that girls in the army is a bad idea.

On the Street Where You Live
by Mary Higgins Clark
In the gripping new novel from the Queen of Suspense, a woman is haunted by two grisly murders separated by more than a century, yet somehow, inextricably linked...Following a nasty divorce and the trauma of being stalked, criminal defense attorney Emily Graham leaves Albany to work in Manhattan. Craving roots, she buys her ancestral home, a Victorian house in the seaside resort town of Spring Lake, New Jersey. Her family sold the house in 1892, after one of Emily's forebears, Madeline Shapley, then a young girl, disappeared.
As the house is renovated and a pool dug, a skeleton is found and identified as Martha Lawrence, a young Spring Lake woman who vanished several years ago. Within her hand is the finger bone of another woman, with a ring, a Shapley family heirloom, still on it. Determined to end the connection between the two murders, Emily becomes a threat to a seductive killer...who chooses her as the next victim.
