Jessie

Coastal Chronicles Book 2

The four Cole boys suffer abuse at the hands of an alcoholic father, while largely being left to their own devices by a heartbroken and overworked mother. Their adventures on their island home have become a welcome escape, and one of the only things in life the boys can truly rely on. Jessie, the youngest and a dreamer, becomes enamored with US plans for manned space flight and its race to the moon, stirring his own dreams of one day becoming an astronaut. In a strange twist of fate, it is the space program and the momentum it gains that abruptly brings their beloved island life to an end. The family is forced to move to the city and start anew.

Life in town creates new challenges, including frequent fistfights with the school's hardened bully, Alan Welty, the families worsening finances and the looming threat of Vietnam and the military draft for Max. All is not lost as Jessie finds support and encouragement from a teacher, Mr. Smith, who becomes his mentor.

An unexpected chain of events causes their estranged father to rethink his ways, professing a deep-hearted change. The family wants to believe him, but is it for real this time? Will Max, the eldest, ever be able to forgive his father for the years of abuse... and does Jessie find a way to connect with the father he hardly wants to know? The family’s road to healing lies in the balance.

A Deadly Learning
by
Faith Mortimer

DescriptionWhen author and amateur sleuth, Diana Rivers travels to Portugal for a holiday, murder is the last thing on her mind. On the first day of her visit, nothing bodes well at the International College of Portugal when a woman’s body is found interred behind a wall during renovation work. The striped plastic tape around the crime-scene portrays a sense of profound unease. What with students practicing sexual rituals in the sand dunes, a suspicion of a drug factory and money laundering plus a rash of killings, her plans for a quiet break go awry.

Diana is in her element.


Jaguar Sun
by
Martha Bourke

DescriptionMaya Delaney is just an average sixteen-year- old. She’s busy dealing with exams, her soon to be ex-boyfriend and fitting in. But Maya’s got bigger problems. She’s hiding a major secret from her dad and having strange visions she can’t control. In her struggle to figure out who she is, she learns that she is meant to fulfill an ancient Mayan Prophesy and bring forth a New Age on earth. Will the spirit magic Maya wields be enough to defeat Toltec, an evil society bent on keeping her from her destiny? Or will that destiny destroy her?

The Coming Tsunami
by
Mike Penny

DescriptionLike many offspring, Paul Giessen and Anna May Noble, are drawn back into decisions regarding their respective elderly parents in their later years. Long ago they were lovers and expected to wed but – inexplicably – split up instead. For over three decades thereafter only a deep and seething hatred for each other remains.

Partially because of a troubled father-son relationship, Paul Giessen believes his father, Tim, should be immediately dispatched to a nursing home upon learning he has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. His mother Wanda disagrees, believing such action premature and so she cares for Tim at home. In the months that follow, Wanda’s chronic heart condition deteriorates and surgery becomes a necessity.


The Razor
by
David Leadbeater

DescriptionTrent, Silk and Radford are the Razor’s Edge and the best spy team in the business – until the government they toiled, served and bled for, disavowed them. Today, rejected and left to their own devices, they work on the fringes, helping good people who find themselves in bad situations.

Fresh Blood
by
Skye Knizley

DescriptionTeenage girls are going missing in the St Louis area only to reappear sliced into bloody, unrecognizable ribbons dropped along a lonely stretch of highway, leaving parents in a state of panic and the police baffled. Twin monster hunters, Jynx and Piper Kane, take the terrifying case, digging in where angels fear to tread in hopes of finding a link to the lycan clan that turned their brother and destroyed their family. As clue after gory clue leads deeper into the darkness that lies just beyond the glow of the city Jynx and Piper find themselves facing a terror like nothing they've hunted before. Something with no fear and no remorse. It's out there in the dark… And it's looking for Fresh Blood.

Sabre City
by
James Paddock

DescriptionAfter 8 years Zechariah Price assumes it is all behind him. Nightmares filled with huge sabre-toothed cats and women screaming still leave him in cold sweats, though less often. He had lost an eye the first time around; Tanya had fractured her back; their marriage had petered on the brink. There was no way he or any of his family was going to set foot in that Montana wilderness again. His 16-year-old daughter, however, decides otherwise and, in hopes of finding out what all the fuss was about when she was just a child, runs off to visit a Montana woman she found in a chat room. She discovers a lot more than she could have imagined, including who her father really was and how much she had inherited from him.

The brothers must outwit and outrun Samuel Herrington, a lethal biophysicist, the FBI, and even fellow Americans in a harrowing cross-country chase, because whoever gets to Danny first will have the power to rule the world.
