29.  Force of Nature by Suzanne Brockmann
28.  Into the Storm by Suzanne Brockmann
27.  Wife of the Gods by Kwei Quartey
Notable for the vividly depicted setting in Ghana, the mystery was a bit pedestrian- I spotted the killer well before the ending.  However the novelty of the setting and culture stil made it a fascinating read.

26.  Lost and Found by Allison Brennan and Laura Griffin
25.  Hot Target by Suzanne Brockmann
24.  Bodyguard by Suzanne Brockmann
23.  Flashpoint by Suzanne Brockmann

22.  The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
A justly lauded book about the woman from whom the first cell culture line was taken, and the interactions of science, race and medical ethics that surround it.  Highly recommended.

21.  Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstien
20.  I Have a Secrety by Cheryl Bradshaw
19.  The Way of the Warrier (anthology)
18.  Night Watch by Suzanne Brockmann
17.  Vacations Cab Be Murder by Connie Shelton
16.  Breaking Point by Suzanne Brockmann
15.  Gone Too Far by Suzanne Brockmann
14.  Into the Night by Suzanne Brockmann

13. Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams by Matthew Walker
While I've always known that sleep was important, this book was quite eye-opening (so to speak) as to just how much so.  The downsides of even short intervals of sleep deprivation are quite scary, and the long term effects are horrific.  The book makes a good case for reprioritzing sleep at the top of my to-do list.

12.  Gone Gull by Donna Andrews
11.  Repressed by Elizabeth Naughton
10. Degrees of Separation by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller
9. Hot Pursuit by Julie Walker
8. Cover Your Eyes by Mary Burton
7. Out of Control by Suzanne Brockmann
6. Frosted by Allison Brennan and Laura Griffin.
5. Hit and Run by Allison Brennan and Laura Griffin
4. Do or Die by Suzanne Brockmann
3. Over the Edge by Suzanne Brockmann
2. The Defiant Hero by Suzanne Brockmann
1. The Unsung Hero by Suzanne Brockmann
