The Lost Order by Steve Berry

The Knights of the Golden Circle was the largest and most dangerous clandestine organization in American history.

Now, 160 years later, two factions of what remains of the Knights of the Golden Circle want that lost treasure --- one to spend it for their own ends, the other to preserve it.

Evan Smoak is the Nowhere Man.

Taken from a group home at 12, Evan was raised and trained as part of the Orphan program, an off-the-books operation designed to create deniable intelligence assets --- i.e. assassins. Evan was Orphan X. He broke with the program, using everything he learned to disappear and reinvent himself as the Nowhere Man. But the new head of the Orphan program hasn’t forgotten about him and is using all of his assets --- including the remaining Orphans --- to track down and eliminate him.

Victoria by Daisy Goodwin

The men who run the country have doubts about whether this sheltered young woman, who stands less than five feet tall, can rule the greatest nation in the world.

Only Daughter by Anna Snoekstra

In 2003, 16-year-old Rebecca Winter disappeared.  

She'd been enjoying her summer break: working at a fast-food restaurant, crushing on an older boy and shoplifting with her best friend.

The Undoing of Saint Silvanus by Beth Moore

Only God knew why Jillian Slater agreed to return to New Orleans on the news that her father had finally drunk himself to death. It’s not like they were close. She hadn’t seen him --- or her grandmother, the ice queen --- in almost 20 years. But when Adella Atwater, the manager of her grandmother’s apartment house, called and said Jillian’s expenses would be paid if she’d fly in for the burial, a free trip to New Orleans was too intriguing to resist.
