Book of the Week #20

Planting Walnuts by Linda Tiernan Kepner (Bennington, NH: Flying Chipmunk Publishing, 2012)

Linda Tiernan Kepner will be at Toadstool Bookshop, Peterborough on May 18, 2013 beginning at 11am to sign copies of this, her latest, sci-fi novel.

"Brannon, ex-Confederation Space Fleet Marine, blacklisted and broke, dodges an arrest warrant by joining an operation that needs money desperately enough to take the worst surveying jobs on the books. The team of Gonderjhee and Company, Surveyors, includes a cheated and bankrupt owner, an elderly office manager, an over-excitable intern, a clinically-depressed alien Fleet Captain, and a staff with a host of formidable handicaps, weaknesses – and strengths. Brannon’s goal is to keep them all alive long enough to pick up his share of the profits. But they aren’t the only ones getting an education out of this adventure." --Publisher's blurb.
