Before Anne After
by James Paddock

"Almost done w/ Before Anne After. Wow! Love it! Can't stop reading! Might miss holiday party cuz of it!" BetteRose Ryan

"A Sci-Fi so elegantly & skillfully fashioned you may forget it's about time-travel." C.L. Withers

"If you like intrigue, suspense, and a lot of twists this is the book for you!! I started reading it and could not put it down after the first chapter. I am a big sci-fi fan and I read the 500+ pages in a little over four days!! YOU NEED THIS BOOK!! It will make you mad, sad, happy and hanging on the edge of your seat!!" Mel C. "cubbyandmel"

"I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys intrigue and science fiction. It is a long book but I so enjoy full fleshed books! If you do too, I suggest you give this one a try." Sunday S. Smith "A Book A Day Reviews"



It’s July, 1987. Through a series of small errors and oversights – a missed phone message, an unlocked high-security door, a lax in protocol, a falling purse – eight-month pregnant Annabelle Waring unknowingly stumbles into her husband’s time-travel experiment. She awakens in a 1943 Charleston Navy Shipyard barracks with no memory of the event. Her existence and her sanity become questionable; if not for her newborn baby and a Charleston, South Carolina police officer, she would certainly have checked herself into the funny farm. Her doctor, alias German spy, learns before she does that she is not only a time-traveler, but a highly educated woman in the field of nuclear science and World War II history. When she finally discovers her own secret, Anne must strive to get both her and her infant daughter home, even at the risk to her own life.

Before Anne After starts you asking penetrating questions. “What would happen if man, or woman, could travel back? Would she be able to change history? Should she? Could she? And then what?” Imagine what the conversations would be like if she could meet with Dr. Robert Oppenheimer, who is in the middle of building the first atomic bomb, or Admiral Wilson Harris, as he prepares to observe the Philadelphia Experiment. Imagine if she could chat with Ernest Hemingway. Imagine what it would be like to be a modern, highly educated, highly intelligent woman in a 1943 society.

Vampire in Paradise
by
Sandra Hill

DescriptionIt's been centuries since the Norseman Sigurd Sigurdsson was turned into a Vangel—a Viking Vampire Angel—as punishment for his sin of envy, but he's still getting the hang of having fangs that get in the way when seducing women. Slaying demon vampires known as Lucipires and using his healing gifts as a cancer research doctor, Sigurd is sent to Florida's Grand Keys Island as a resident physician . . . where he encounters a sinfully beautiful woman.

Farewell to Goodbye
by
Penny Childs

DescriptionBook #1 of the Never Say Goodbye Series

Sometimes goodbye is not forever…

It’s been seven years since Melanie Rhodes was brutally attacked by a deranged serial killer. Now, sheriff of the sleepy little village of Spring Haven, Michigan, things are good. The worst crimes she has to deal with are kids partying on vacant property and the occasional domestic dispute.

Even when a woman’s body is found in the woods, she thinks she has a straight forward murder case on her hands. But when the second body is discovered she makes a startling connection between the two dead women. Both were attacked by serial killers in their past and both had lived to tell about it. Fearing the worst, she prepares to call in the FBI for help but before she can, her fears are confirmed. Another young woman’s body is found by a fisherman, and she too had been attacked by a serial killer in the past.

The FBI sends in Trevor Giles, their best monster hunter and a man from Mel’s terrifying past. As the bodies begin to pile up Mel and Trevor must learn to put the past behind them in order to work together to find the killer. And together they will have to use both conventional and unconventional means to unravel the mystery. Mel will have to dip into a talent she has vowed never to use again. She will have to “connect” to the killer’s mind in order to find him. Time is running out and the killer’s intentions are clear. The ultimate prize must be claimed: Sheriff Melanie Rhodes herself.


House Rules
by
Jodi Picoult

DescriptionWhen your son can’t look you in the eye . . . does that mean he’s guilty?

Jacob Hunt is a teen with Asperger’s syndrome. He’s hopeless at reading social cues or expressing himself well to others, though he is brilliant in many ways. But he has a special focus on one subject—forensic analysis. A police scanner in his room clues him in to crime scenes, and he’s always showing up and telling the cops what to do. And he’s usually right.


The Mackenzie Dossier
by
John Holt

DescriptionKendall could just see the television screen. There was a photograph of Governor Frank Reynolds. Across the bottom of the screen the ticker tape announced in large black letters 'Governor Reynolds Murdered'. The voice over was filling in whatever detail was available. Apparently his body had been discovered earlier that morning. He had been found lying in his garage. He had been shot twice. One shot to the upper chest, the other hitting his shoulder. 'Police believe that the weapon used was a 9 mm pistol,' the reporter said. Kendall froze. Anthony Shaw had also been killed by a 9 mm bullet. Kendall was not quite sure of what it all meant. What connection was there between Anthony Shaw, and the State Governor, and the business mogul, Ian Duncan. And what about Senator Mackenzie? Where did he fit in? And who or what was Latimer? Only a short while ago Kendall was a small time private detective , a Private Eye, investigating an insignificant little murder with no clues, no witnesses, and

But the corpse brought to Mondino's laboratory one stormy night defies natural law: The victim is a Templar knight, and his heart has been transformed into a block of iron. Is it alchemy?
