Beneath Mackerel Skies
by Elizabeth Egerton Wilder

The American Civil War may have ended but the tragic loss of one of the Ryan boys still holds heavy in the hearts of his family. Little Cece, born after her big brothers went to war, is a wise and knowing child who adds just the bit of glue her family needs to bind them during the hustle and bustle of rapid growth along the Penobscot River in Maine where bigotry towards native Americans continues to run just beneath the surface of everyday life. Twins, new immigrants from London, bring surprises that turn the static life at Prospect Ferry into unexpected mayhem. Romance, jealousy, brutality, fears, joy and despair mix to affect the family from Fort Knox to Indian Island to Aroostook County. If one dared ask, “What’s next?” Cece would reply, “I not know.”

The final installment in the “Maine at Heart” trilogy, Beneath Mackerel Skies picks up where Granite Hearts left off and circles back to Smytheville where the story began with The Spruce Gum Box. An epic tale, the series spans several generations and decades of life along the rustic and emerging historic coastline of Maine.

Sleeping Through the Beauty
by
Regina Puckett

A beautiful comatose woman will teach him the true meaning of life and the importance of not sleeping through the beauty of it all.

Better or Dead

Sherrie Lowe

DescriptionEvery life has shades of dark and light and sometimes we all need a little help from a higher power.

Beneath African Skies
by
Gillie Bowen

DescriptionBeneath African Skies is based on the true story of the siblings' young lives in 20th century Africa: hyena, crocodile and cobra attacks, gold rush mania, crater plunges, near-fatal accidents, typhoid fever and murder are just some of the ordeals they must face. It is the story of coping with death and the horrors of the Second World War: both as an RAF fighter pilot and as a pregnant and lonely bride in war-time Britain. Above all, it is the story of their survival and their love for each other.

The Lush Life
by
Peggy A. Edelheit

DescriptionMy name is Samantha. I’m a novelist who seems to fall into unusual mysteries and ends up becoming part of and writing about them. It has made me semi-famous for stirring up and getting into trouble. After selling their art gallery to someone else, Clay’s friends, Alicia and Chris Worth, decided to take their trip to Europe, but for a month to collect some personal art. Clay promised them I’d housesit their house, while he took on another case. Great...now I was dealing with real live fictional people that kept showing up at their front door! I've always dreamed of the lush life, but this...?

Dating in the Dark
by
Tracey Rogers

DescriptionHiding out in his sister's bakery to recover from a recent injury isn't an ideal solution for newly unemployed meteorologist Damian Trent. Especially since he doesn't like cake. But hiding anywhere is preferable to facing the media frenzy revolving around his life. He has no intention of being seen by anyone. That is, until he hears a honey-toned voice over the phone.

DescriptionTony Lovett's promising career with a large accountancy firm, comes to an abrupt end, and following hundreds of fruitless job applications, he decides on a fresh and radical approach.
