Here’s what’s new in bookstores this week:

•  The Target by David Baldacci (Grand Central Publishing, $28) — The author, who has written 27 bestselling novels beginning with 1996’s Absolute Power, returns with the third thriller in his Will Robie series. In this one, the president calls on assassin extraordinaire Will and partner Jessica Reel to carry out a high-risk mission: eliminate a global menace “once and for all.” There are adversaries aplenty — and failure is not an option. Grand Central Publishing is also offering the audiobook ($30), narrated by actors Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy.

•  Love, Nina: A Nanny Writes Home by Nina Stibbe (Little, Brown and Company, $25) — In 1982, the author, then 20, embarked on an adventure. She was a nanny for five years to two boys (ages 9 and 10) in London’s Gloucester Crescent, the center of Britain’s literary scene. Her frequent letters home to her sister, Victoria, in rural Leicester make up this 336-page slice-of-life memoir — with some juicy details (the boys are allowed by their mum to curse at the dinner table) and fly-on-the-wall name-dropping thrown in.

•  Everybody’s Got Something by Robin Roberts with Veronica Chambers (Grand Central Publishing, $27) — The beloved anchor of ABC’s Good Morning America found the title and the beginning of her memoir thanks to words of wisdom from her mother, who also advised “make your mess your message.” Roberts details her inspirational life so far, including a pair of very public health scares, the death of her mother and finding strength in her extended support system. She also narrates the audiobook, available from Grand Central Publishing ($30).
