Ruby's Story
by Bill Cronin

Jack McNamara Chronicles Book 2

Jack McNamara’s terminally ill Aunt Ruby has come to live her remaining days with him. She has a story that she wants her best-selling, author, nephew to write, a written legacy she wants to leave before she passes. Skeptical at first that the story has merit, Ruby quickly draws Jack into a heart rending tale of love, betrayal and a family dealing with bigotry and racism in the Deep South in 1938.

A Lethal Time
by
Peggy A. Edelheit

DescriptionI was beginning to question a lot, including my sanity for trying to find something I didn’t know anyone would steal in the first place. How did I end up in another complicated mystery involving a motorcycle rally, horses, a hidden collection, antique books, unexpected alliances, extortion, and threats upon my life? 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?

Just Add Trouble
by
Jinx Schwartz

DescriptionHetta Coffey Series Book 3

Hetta Coffey is a sassy Texan with a snazzy yacht, and she's not afraid to use it!

A globe-trotting engineer with adventure in her soul, Hetta is determined to solidify her relationship with her long-distance boyfriend, Jenks Jenkins. What better place for a romantic interlude than aboard her yacht in Mexico's hauntingly beautiful and solitary Sea of Cortez?

But where Hetta goes, trouble follows, and chaos is sure to ensue. After a run-in with a couple of sea serpents that threaten to rock the boat, she nevertheless decides to take on a project in the Mexican port city of Guaymas. After all, Jenks is headed back to Kuwait, so why not cash in on the best of both worlds by picking up a few pesos while living aboard her boat in Mexico?

Once again Hetta's indomitable spirit, stubborn independence and penchant for deceit will keep the reader in stitches as she launches herself and her best friend, Jan, into a sea of trouble. A pesky parrot, a drunken aunt, and a shadowy figure who is handsome in a "criminal sort of way" lead to murder, mayhem, kidnapping, and run-ins with several federal agencies on both sides of the border.


Return to Finian Jahndra
by
Katy Huth Jones

DescriptionFour years after saving the magical land of Finian Jahndra, Leandra's cancer has returned and the prognosis is grim. At Songcatcher's request, Leandra returns to help her bird friends and Prince Aspen repel an invading army. But something is terribly wrong--her flute has no magic and her health is not restored. Despite heartbreaking losses, a series of perplexing mysteries, and the exhaustion of her advancing illness, Leandra must find a way to rally the birds and humans of Finian Jahndra to meet a much greater and deadly force before the magic dies forever.

Life's a Ditch
by
Charles Dougherty

DescriptionWhen my wife and I decided to run away to sea, we thought we knew what we were doing. Our first few months on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, or “the Ditch,” disabused us of that notion. Our seamanship was adequate, but our expectations weren't realistic. Life's a Ditch isn't so much about where we went and what we saw during our time in the Ditch, but about how we reacted to it and how our lives were changed by our experiences. Share the surprises we had and the choices that we made as we discovered what we got ourselves into when we abandoned our comfortable life ashore to become seagoing wanderers.

Bentwhistle the Dragon in A Threat from the Past
by
Paul Cude

DescriptionThree young dragons, a master mantra maker, and a complete dragon stranger with more than a little history attached to him, become caught up in an evil plot by a sinister newcomer to steal a precious commodity, vital to the dragon community. How will the reluctant hero and his friends fare against an enemy of his race from far in the past?

State of Grace
by
Elizabeth Davies

DescriptionWhen Grace, 27 years old and with only a few months left to live, returns to her home town of Brecon, she is catapulted nearly 1800 years into the past. At first she attributes her hallucinations to her brain tumour but as the visions become more detailed and closer to the present day, she becomes involved with a certain wickedly handsome and rather inhuman Roman, who has an obsession with blood.

Say Youll Haunt Me
by
Penny Childs

DescriptionOn a dark, snowy night, vacationing FBI Agent Jason Mackenzie is on his way to visit with a friend when he stumbles across something far more interesting than the usual fishing and poker games. A woman standing upon the railing of a bridge, ready to jump. Or so it appears. While trying to talk her down from the railing, the first doubts cross Jason's mind. And when the woman tumbles into the icy waters below and he follows her, he sets off a chain of events which he could not have foreseen. Samantha O'Connell does not remember why she was found standing on the bridge railing-and even more worrisome-how she got there in the first place. Was it a suicide attempt or something much more sinister? Determined to help her find the answer to that question, Jason soon learns how one simple question can lead to many more; and how one secret, at the center of it all, can be deadly. In order to protect Samantha, he must break all the rules. Kidnapping her from a mental institution and hiding her away is only the beginning. A reluctant family's secrets must be uncovered, and one of them is willing to kill to keep them buried.

Souls: A Novel
by
J A Hinsman

DescriptionAnn finds herself in California seeking out a Hollywood producer as the perpetrator and while there finds her soul coming back to life when she meets a young actor, Tyler Peters. She cringes at the idea of dating someone younger and becoming a ‘cougar’, but she may be able to use him for his Hollywood connections. An astonishing electricity between the two turns to a passionate and deep love that is tested by an unpredictable twist that comes when Ann figures out who is behind her sister’s death.

Out of the Wilderness
by
Deb Vanasse

DescriptionSurvival. It makes for exciting TV, but all Josh wants a life that passes for normal. A real house, not a cabin in the woods. Hockey, not hunting to put food on the table. Girls. But his half-brother, Nathan, wants to prove himself in the Alaska wilderness, and their father won’t let him do it alone. Josh’s prospects brighten when an intriguing girl visits remote Willow Creek, but Shannon is entranced with his brother. As Nathan’s behavior grows stranger—and more dangerous—Josh confronts the dark side of what it means to be his brother’s keeper.
