The Shifting
by Mackenzie Brown

The Shifting Trilogy Book 1

Doctor Stephen Forshaw belonged to one of London’s oldest and wealthiest families. When Doctor Forshaw simply vanished into thin air, only to be followed one year later by his sons, Robert, Angus and Toby. No motive or clue to their disappearances was ever discovered by the Police and their bodies were never found. Despite this, the authorities secretly believed that all four were dead and were certain that it was only a matter of time before their bodies were discovered.............

Almost ten years to the day Stephen was discovered missing, a boy matching Toby’s description reappears at a disused farm in Hertfordshire. The boy has no memory of where he has been and doesn’t even know his name, or why he hasn't aged one day in a decade. He is only aware that his life is in grave danger..........

Here Among the Ruins
by
Regina Puckett

DescriptionA collection of poetry

Drink Our Fill
Ever once awhile and again
I think back to where it begin
A tracing of a fingertip
A momentary trip and slip
Goosebumps and shivers
Moments sliced into slivers
A pause and then a glance
Wondering if there could be a chance
If only time could somehow stand still
While our hearts drank their fill


Borrowed Trouble
by
Penny Childs

DescriptionHaving it all means different things to different people…

Nash Kincaid couldn’t want for much more than he had. He lived on the ranch he’d grown up on and he answered only to himself and the land he loved. But sometimes having everything you want comes with a price tag. Sometimes what you have is exactly what someone else wants. And sometimes they are willing to kill for it.

Lured into the woods on a snowy, moonlit night, Nash Kincaid is shot down for reasons no one but his killer can fathom.

Reeling from the news of his brother’s death, Sutton Kincaid rushes from his penthouse in New York to his younger brother’s ranch. He’d left his family’s Montana ranch when he’d graduated high school and had never looked back. Now, it would seem, that is all he can do. Until he bumps into River Montieth, the feisty rancher’s daughter who lives next door. She stirs in him feelings he’d long since forgotten he was capable of and makes him second guess the choices he’s made.

There’s just one little problem. Could she have been the one who had killed Nash?


Casey Canyon
by
S.W. Cannon

DescriptionCasey Canyon’s dishonest choices lead him to huge trouble in his love life and possibly in his career. A destructive love triangle and near misses with the law, leave this police officer in a complicated dilemma. Will he choose Sam or Meredith, crime or the law? It may be too late... the decisions may have already been made for him. Just when you think you know what's going on, you don't. Each chapter has a cliff hanger like an episode of Scandal written by Shonda Rhimes and an ending that will leave your mouth ajar. This is the kind of read that will have you talking to other people about the characters as if you've met them, then put your phone on silent to finish the book!

The Night Porter
by
Mark Barry

DescriptionTHE STORY The Night Porter is set in a hotel, in November, in the fictional town of Wheatley Fields, (based on Southwell, near Nottinghamshire, deep in Sherwood Forest). It takes place over two weeks, underneath steel grey clouds and icy rain.

Four writers, all nominated for an upcoming awards ceremony, come to stay. One mega successful romance author, a top US thriller writer who sells in seven figures, a beautiful young YA tyro on the brink of world wide stardom... ...and a degenerate, nasty, bitter, jealous, trollish, drunken (but brilliant), self-published contemporary fiction author. The eponymous, pseudonymous and anonymous Night Porter is instructed by a secretive and powerful awards committee to look after their EVERY need, to ensure they make it through the two weeks to attend the ceremony. At the same time as keeping an eye on their wishes, antics, fights, relationships and never-ending ego explosions. And trying desperately to avoid getting involved himself.

by
Peggy A. Edelheit

And how did I become a target? It was “A Lethal Time” and my time was running out. What secrets were they all afraid of me discovering?
