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.

Bluewater Bullion
by
Charles Dougherty

DescriptionGerald Yates and Nick Thompson are an odd pair. Although the two men deny it, it’s clear to Dani and Liz that they’ve chartered Vengeance to search for sunken treasure. Besides being perplexed by the men's choice of a sailing yacht for a task better suited to a salvage vessel, Dani doesn’t trust either of the men. Liz, as usual, tries to make the best of things, but even she becomes suspicious when they realize that their guests are under surveillance by a shady private espionage organization.

Battle Of Fortune Wells
by
Daniel C. Chamberlain

DescriptionThe great Comanche people, once considered by military experts to be the finest mounted fighting force in the world, were surrendering to the U.S. Army. The last to surrender were the Quahadi people led by the famed “War Chief” Quanah Parker and were relegated to a reservation made up of Comanche, Kiowa and some Apache people in the Southwest Indian Territory. But reservations were not prisons, and many of those who lived there simply left to hunt or wander and often they attacked isolated ranches and buffalo hunters encamped in areas that once had been the great Comanche Nation.

Positioned beneath a statue of Leto, the goddess of motherhood, the crime is weighted with meaning and, Ellen discovers, remarkably similar to one from a decade past.

Hoodoo Money
by
Sharon Cupp Pennington

DescriptionAfter her almost-wedding to a bigamist, successful children's author Braeden McKay has given up on love. She's content to live vicariously through her imaginary heroine, Platypus Pearl, and a gaggle of adventurous, web-footed cohorts--until a working vacation in New Orleans shakes up her quiet, structured world. Had she known that souvenir nickel stolen from the grave of a hoodoo gypsy would catapult her into a nightmare of betrayal and murder, she would have insisted her friend put it back. Cursed nickel or unfortunate happenstance?
