***My name is Samantha. I’m a novelist who seems to fall into unusual mysteries and ends up becoming part of and writing about them. It has made me semi-famous for stirring up and getting into trouble. This one almost got away from me because I had about a week to solve it and began to think maybe this one was unsolvable. It involved a murder, drugs, an ex-wife, an antique car collection, and the FBI.

REVIEWERS:
“Wonderful stories, keep them coming! Great writer.”
“Enjoyed the quick and fun read.” “I love all of the twists and turns that come in to play!”
"Did not disappoint and turned out to be another "don't want to put down" murder mystery...”
“I thoroughly enjoyed the latest installment of the Samantha Jamison mystery series.”
“Murder, drugs, an ex-wife, an antique car collection, the FBI…how can you go wrong?”
"Great book!"

Fall Eagle One
by
Warren Bell

DescriptionIf you liked Col. Steiner in THE EAGLE HAS LANDED, you'll love Siegfried von Rall--"the best pilot in the Luftwaffe"

BEST ACTION/ADVENTURE NOVEL IN 2014 INDIE BOOKSTORE CONTEST!

The time is 1943, and Nazi Germany is reeling from nightly battering of her cities by the RAF. Catastrophe looms at Stalingrad. Siegfried von Rall, Hermann Göring’s technical advisor, hatches strategic missions to buy time for his country to refine cutting-edge technology into “Victory” weapons.

Two targets galvanize Siegfried’s attention: Soviet hydro plants in the Urals and killing FDR. He chooses aircraft and a team of experts for the missions. Göring fast-tracks detailed planning and training.

In Britain, codebreaker Evan Thompson reads Siegfried’s radio messages but can’t detect his objective. The chilling truth emerges only after an Amerika-Bomber bearing “smart bombs” leaves Norway for the U.S.

FALL EAGLE ONE has aerial combat, trans-Atlantic assassination flights, Eastern Front action, codebreaking at Bletchley Park, intrigue at the highest levels of the German High Command, and fast-paced war-time romance.

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.

Trial by Fire
by
Penny Fletcher

DescriptionRonnie Monroe had lost everyone she'd ever loved including her husband and child, and finally, her twin. Now, in the middle of the biggest government cover-up she'd investigated since beginning her career as a journalist fifteen years before, she found herself falling in love with the two men closest to the story. If the things NASA had recently discovered were released, they would affect every major religious belief in the world. Ronnie stared at the new star projected on the NASA screen. It looked so harmless, pretty actually. No one would guess it was aimed straight at the center of the Earth. But Blake and Rashid weren't looking at the star. Both were staring directly at Ronnie, the passions they shared reflecting in their eyes.
