The Dating Game
by Susan Buchanan

Workaholic recruitment consultant, Gill McFadden, is sick of her friends trying to match-make for her. Up until now her love life has been a disaster and she’s going through a drier spell than the Sahara desert.

She realises she has to act, as work keeps piling up and at this rate she will have retired before she has time for a relationship.

Seeing an ad on a bus one day, she decides to visit Happy Ever After dating agency. She quickly discovers men are like buses. They all come along at once. Unsure what her type is, Gill decides to keep her options open. Soon she has problems juggling her social life as well as her work diary. Will she ever strike the right balance?

Before long she is experiencing laughs, lust and… could it be love? But like everything in Gill’s life, nothing is straightforward and she ends up wondering exactly who she can trust.

Lucy's Love
by
Edwina J White

DescriptionLucy Edwards was 31 when she met and fell in love with Dan Foster. She was very rich, he was a poor art student. He was also ten years younger than Lucy. The economic disparity didn't bother Lucy. His age did, and after nearly four years together her insecurity drove them apart. Eight years later they met again, and the love still sparked between them, the chemistry and caring were still there. Dan, now a critical and financial success, was determined to marry his love. There was a problem. Belinda. Beautiful, talented. She'd painted the nude of Dan that had captivated Lucy's attention. In fact, Dan dumped Belinda to be with Lucy. Now Belinda was determined to have Dan back... But with a little help from his friends, Dan planned to evade Belinda and convince Lucy to finally be his bride.

J.C. Hulsey

DescriptionFrancis Gertrude O'Brian, (TRUDY) a rawboned 18 year old freckle faced red head is physically and mentally abused by her two sisters, then sexually abused by her neighbor boys. She becomes a little mixed up and confused in her thinking. Perhaps it's because she's so young, that she doesn't think things through before she acts. She commits many acts of robbery and murder, however as she grows older and matures, her thinking becomes clearer and she seemingly wants to do good.

It's a Long Story: My Life
by
Willie Nelson

DescriptionWhat I say is that this is the story of my life, told as clear as a Texas sky and in the same rhythm that I lived it.

It's a story of restlessness and the purity of the moment and living right. Of my childhood in Abbott, Texas, to the Pacific Northwest, from Nashville to Hawaii and all the way back again. Of selling vacuum cleaners and encyclopedias while hosting radio shows and writing song after song, hoping to strike gold.

It's a story of true love, wild times, best friends, and barrooms, with a musical sound track ripping right through it.

My life gets lived on the road, at home, and on the road again, tried and true, and I've written it all down from my heart to yours.

Signed,
Willie Nelson


The Midnight House
by
Alex Berenson

DescriptionEarly one morning, a former CIA agent is shot to death in the street. That night, an army vet is gunned down in his doorway. The next day, John Wells gets a phone call. Come to Langley. Now.

The two victims were part of an eleven-member interrogation team that operated out of a secret base in Poland called the Midnight House. For two years, they put the screws to the toughest jihadis, men thought to have knowledge of imminent threats. The interrogators used whatever means necessary. When they were disbanded in the wake of public controversy, they were given medals for their heroism, Prozac for their nightmares. Now Wells must find out who is killing them. Islamic terrorists are the likeliest explanation, and Wells is uniquely qualified to go undercover after them. But the trail of blood he discovers will lead him and his boss, Ellis Shafer, to a place they wouldn't have imagined-and leave Wells facing the hardest of questions about the men of the Midnight House.

Berenson's work has been called "superior entertainment" (The Washington Post), "heart- stopping adventure" (USA Today), and "a superb yarn reflecting the myriad dangers confronting our country today" (The Providence Journal). He is one of the world's best new thriller writers-and he is just getting started.

Remembering Death
by
James Paddock

DescriptionLester Winters, in early stages of Alzheimer's, submits to an experimental procedure (a pacemaker for his brain) to restore his memory. He first recalls a dead woman who, it is assumed by his wife, is his mother from years past. As weeks go by and Lester's 'pacemaker' does its job, he recalls that it is Caroline who is dead, not his mother. His wife decides that it'd be prudent to hire an attorney to help find the answers. The attorney hires Parker DuPont, who soon discovers that there is a lot more to Lester's memory than just a dead woman by the name of Caroline. He remembers where she is buried. He also remembers the face of the killer and is scared into silence that the killer remembers him.

No Hope In New Hope
by
Peggy A. Edelheit

DescriptionMy name is Samantha. I'm semi-famous for stirring up and getting into trouble solving unusual mysteries. I knew my romantic trip to New Hope with my cagey, fine-looking gumshoe was too convenient. We’re staying with who? No B&B? This last minute invite from his friends sounded suspicious. Where was my romantic rendezvous? All I got was some nut with a gun!
