Tales of the Dragonfly Book I: In Tandem
by Tamara Ferguson

The dragonfly is believed to be a symbol of renewal after a time of great hardship.

Book I: In Tandem

Separated by circumstances fifteen years earlier, Jake Loughlin and Danielle Reardon are fatefully reunited at Dragonfly Pointe.

But the mysterious Dragonfly Pointe has a history of tragedy. An unsolved brutal assault and murder of a six-year old girl over twenty years before has remained unsolved.

A successful entrepreneur, Jake has hidden his status as a special investigator for the FBI. As owner of the Dragonfly Pointe Inn, Jake has returned to restore and renovate the abandoned property.

But, unofficially, he's investigating the theory that a ring of human traffickers is operating in the area. With three to five kidnappings occurring at the end of each year, over the states of Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, Jake can trace a pattern going back as far as thirty-five years.

And there could be a connection to the death of the little girl at Dragonfly Pointe twenty-two years earlier. Grieving after the death of her grandmother several months before, Danielle has finally returned to Crystal Rock. A former model and vocalist for a band, Danielle escaped her chaotic life as a celebrity when her boyfriend died of a drug overdose. After obtaining her horticulture degree, she opened a successful landscape business in New York.

When Jake and Danielle finally meet again, it's magic.

But something odd is going on at Dragonfly Pointe. Several times during the reconstruction process, a suspicious stranger is sighted in the area. When a young girl is kidnapped from a nearby community, the FBI investigation becomes official, and Jake is put into action.

Then lovely, eighteen-year old, Lucy Callahan, is kidnapped. Granddaughter of the former police chief of Crystal Rock, Lucy is like a sister to Danielle.

When the FBI investigation leads back to Dragonfly Pointe, Danielle, herself, is put in danger.

Despite its tragic history, the beauty and power of the magic at Dragonfly Pointe enables new beginnings. Suffering tremendous loss, or surviving abuse and tragedy, each character featured in the series will create their own new beginning, aided by the power of love.

Tales from the Promised Land
by
John Rose Putnam

DescriptionTales from the Promised Land is a collection of five of John’s most compelling stories of life in early California. From the tongue in cheek Bottomless Bartlett’s Beautiful Bride, in which a man offers $200 for a suitable wife, to Uncle Charley, where the rapidly changing times may surprise even a modern reader, each tale will leave your heart richer. A falling out between brothers is the focus of the powerful Payback at Murderer’s Bar, and in Firebaugh’s Ferry a reporter meets a woman at a lonely stage stop where the most wanted man in California will soon be executed. And with the adventurous Stoddard’s Gold comes a brand new twist to the famous yarn about a lost lake of gold high in the Sierra that will bring a smile to every face.

DescriptionJessie Montgomery’s life has been turned upside down. She’s caught her husband of twelve years cheating with none other than her best friend. Not once, not twice, but three times. At the end of her rope, she kicks her husband out of the house. And just when she thinks things can’t possibly get any worse, alone at her home in a remote part of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, she hears gunshots ring out from a nearby roadside park. But the gunshots aren't the frightening part, the screams she hears are.

When a simple exchange goes wrong and an assassin tries to kill him, Seth Ronan only knows one thing. He’s been double-crossed. Not knowing who has turned on him or why, he must flee. He goes to the only place he remembers seeing, a home he passed on the way to the roadside park. He only wants to steal a car and get as far away from the park and the killers as he can. But as he prepares to steal the car, the owner interrupts him. And he does the only thing he knows to do. He takes Jessie Montgomery hostage.
