#1 - Jake by Leigh Greenwood [Cowboys series]
#2 - Pete by Leigh Greenwood [Cowboys series]
i cannot say enough praise-wise about Mr. Greenwood and his novels. Seven Brides is by far my favorite series of his, but the Cowboys is trying to surpass that.

The Wise Woman by Philippa Gregory - Alys, young apprentice to a rumored witch, flees and joins an order of Catholic nuns. when the abbey is ransacked, leaving Alys the sole survivor, her life takes a very different turn. very enjoyable thus far.
Alexander the Great: Murder in Babylon by Graham Phillips - historical mystery study....was one of ancient history's most famous rulers, who dropped dead at the young age of thirty-two, possibly the victim of foul play? author explores the events leading up to the day Alexander died and presents eight people that he considers could be suspects. slow reading in some spots, but very interesting idea. recommended for students, as each chapter has at its end a section that seems to be of use for study guides, research/book reports and the like.
