Kalahari

Khoury, Jessica
The Scholastic edition does not suggest that this is book three of a series. Sarah lives in the Kalahari semi-desert with her zoologist-researcher father. Her mother died several months before. A motley group of teens are coming to stay for two week, possibly the beginning of a new source of funding for the research station. Things go badly. "Poachers", a horrific "disease", and a silver lion. Lots of action, I will give it that.

Bag Of Bones

King, Stephen
Writer guy goes back to stay at his vacation retreat after his wife dies. Wierd stuff happens. Mostly pretty good book.

QUOTE:

Johanna once said that if I was drowning at Dark Score Lake, where we have a summer home, I would die silently fifty feet out from the public beach rather than yell for help... But if someone asks me, "Are you all right?" I can't answer no. I can't say help me.
