It's Murder, My Son
by Lauren Carr

A Mac Faraday Mystery Book 1

“An exciting mystery with plenty of intriguing and enigmatic characters, It's Murder, My Son is not a read that should be missed for mystery fans.” Midwest Book Reviews

“A Mystery Lover Must-Read in my opinion!” Glenda Bixler, Book Reader’s Heaven “In It's Murder, My Son, Lauren Carr has provided a complex plot with a diversity of characters that blend so well with the mystery.” Connie Gregory, Connie’s Reviews

What started out as the worst day of Mac Faraday's life would end up being a new beginning. After a messy divorce hearing, the last person that Mac wanted to see was another lawyer. Yet, this lawyer wore the expression of a child bursting to tell his secret, which would reveal Mac as heir to undreamed of fortunes, and lead him to the birthplace of America’s Queen of Mystery and an investigation that will unfold like one of her famous mystery novels.

Soon after she moves to her new lakefront home in Spencer, Maryland, multi-millionaire Katrina Singleton learns that life in an exclusive community is not all good. For some unknown reason, a strange man calling himself “Pay Back” begins stalking her. When Katrina is found strangled all evidence points to her terrorist, who is nowhere to be found.

Three months later the file on her murder is still open with only vague speculations from the local police department when Mac Faraday, sole heir to his unknown birth mother’s home and fortune, moves into the estate next door. Little does he know as he drives up to Spencer Manor that he is driving into a closed gate community that is hiding more suspicious deaths than his DC workload as a homicide detective. With the help of his late mother’s journal, this retired cop puts all his detective skills to work to pick up where the local investigators have left off to follow the clues to Katrina’s killer.

DescriptionWhen an expatriate theatrical group gather to discuss their next play there will be murder. A blackmailer stalks their picturesque Cypriot village. The group is riven with jealousies, rivalry, sexual tension and illicit affairs.

Unbeknown to each other they all attempt to find solutions to their problems. Some believe it lies in murder. Can they find the blackmailer? And can they find that all important ‘little black book’ – the chronicle of their misdeeds.

A body is discovered and Diana turns detective to draw up a suspects list. After the police get involved one of the suspects is found hanged – is this another murder or suicide? Was he indeed hanged? A visit to a villager’s home uncovers an ancient assassin’s device. Could this be the murder weapon?

BEYOND

DescriptionBEYOND Series Book 1

"Brilliantly done. A lovely debut to the young adult genre." - Romancing The Book Reviews

It is the day after Aimee Patterson’s high school graduation. College beckons, as does her dream of becoming an engineer. On an early evening walk, her cocker spaniel charges into the woods on the other side of the pond. Aimee trails after him, and in the stillness of that forest the unthinkable happens. She becomes paralyzed and watches in horror as her hands vanish before her eyes.

Waking to the sound of voices, Aimee realizes that she has been kidnapped. Little does she know how far away from home she is, though. In an attempt to flee her captors, she launches from their confines only to freeze at the view outside the window. The sky is black and filled with stars, and in the distance is a familiar blue globe. The planet Earth.

A group of humans forced to flee their planet after an epidemic destroyed their civilization now travel the galaxies in search of an antidote. Retrieving samples of plant life from every solar system, on this occasion Aimee was accidentally seized instead.

Aimee must learn to avoid the advances of an awkward young scientist who seems intent on dissecting her, as her own fascination turns to the exotic young warrior, Zak. Having fallen in love with Zak, she is now torn with the decision to return to Earth or live beyond the stars.

Red Mojo Mama
by
Kathy Lynn Hall

DescriptionAfter three years of mourning for her husband, normally audacious Lydia “Red” Talbot has lost her mojo, but it seems that’s about to change. She’s inherited a valuable mobile home park in the Gold Country of California, filled with a cast of eccentric characters, which she intends to sell and use the proceeds to take a world cruise. A hot handyman, a sizzling story in the rapidly growing town of Nuggetville and the appearance of her husband’s ghost (who has decided to hang around awhile as he searches for his next life), all put a kink in her plans.

The Red Fang
by
Nicola C. Matthews

DescriptionHopeless, pointless. That’s how the entire situation looked to us, the non-humans, the citizens of this great nation deemed “less-than” by politicians, the government, religious factions, and everyone else on the planet who did not understand us. We were all hopelessly doomed to be picked off one by one, entire species and families eradicated for no reason other than the fact that we were different, that we were feared by the majority. Our lives were being cut short, but we would not stand idly by and allow ourselves to be destroyed. We would fight, to the bitter end, with our last breath, all declaring as one that we are no different from the humans, that we have the right to exist, to live. Battle lines have been drawn. But the war, has just begun.
