**Named a Notable Book for 2015 by Shelf Unbound Magazine**

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen…”

Ruby Graves, a young girl in Depression-era Alabama, faces the hardships of poverty and loss with as much faith as she can muster. At only the age of thirteen, she’s already lost a younger brother to illness, and now faces losing both her father and the boy who’s stealing her heart to illnesses as well. Armed with her beloved Scriptures, she prays daily for their healing, only to have her tender faith shattered by her father’s death.

Through her pain, she’s able to connect with her long-lost Uncle Asa, who’s mere presence at his brother’s funeral brings murmurs of a scandalous past involving her parents and a prominent local pastor, Irwin Cass. When Ruby discovers that one of Asa’a many secrets is an ability to heal, and that she may be next in line for the “gift,” she vows to find the faith that has eluded her so far, a faith that could mean never losing loved ones again.

But faith and doubt can’t reside in the same heart, not according to her father, and doubt is Ruby’s constant companion. As she struggles to find the true meaning of faith, she’s opposed at every turn by the pastor who would see her family destroyed and a community that can’t see deeper than the color of one’s skin. Through her search for a faith that could move mountains and a true understanding of her gift, can Ruby trust in a God that may require the ultimate sacrifice?

Paradise Island, by Christopher Sherlock, is $2.99 today in the Amazon Kindle store.

Category: Action & Adventure

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Paradise Island is a thriller set in modern day sub-Saharan Africa. The key protagonists are Candice Cain, a US photo-journalist; Carlos da Gama, the editor of a highly influential Mozambiquan newspaper and Courtney Regal, the owner and operator of a multi-national conglomerate with a South African heritage. The story opens with a dramatic, violent scene from Carlos’ early childhood, forty years before, in Angola and rapidly advances to Paradise Island, a semi-fictitious locale on the east coast of Mozambique.

Candice takes on an assignment to complete a photo essay on the effects of landmines on Paradise Island, a former holiday resort mined during the civil war in Mozambique. Candice has a tortured past – the only child of a professional soldier her father has brought her up like the son he never had, schooling her in all aspects of self-protection and the martial arts. At the time of the story Candice is building a reputation as a press photographer who exposes the dark side. She is still developing and has yet to come to terms with herself, especially her violent side.

Candice soon realizes that there is something sinister developing on the island when she fights off a gang of thugs who have been sent to kill her. During a series of fast escalating events, she meets Carlos da Gama, an investigative journalist who has come to Paradise Island to expose the situation.

Carlos was a charismatic student activist who was involved in the anti-apartheid at Wits University in Johannesburg in the seventies. Carlos was eventually deported by the South African security police and gained an international reputation as an outstanding journalist. Carlos is a brilliant orator, incredibly charismatic and without fear.

Candice and Carlos fall in love. They realize that a massive oil field is being developed which will inevitably destroy the marine reserve of the Paradise Archipelago, but that this finding pales into insignificance as they fight for their lives as they try to stop a revolution, masterminded by Courtney Regal, which is engulfing South Africa and its neighbouring states. Regal needs to eliminate Carlos and Candice if he is to succeed in his objective of gaining total economic and political control of the gigantic oil fields he has discovered.

The novel revolves around the uncertain future that faces sub-Saharan Africa in the new millennium as a result of corruption and the unscrupulous activities of big business. The novel reflects the underlying reality of modern day Africa – the continent may be an exciting place to live, but the subtext of violence, uncertainty and political opportunism is always present.

House of Blues is the FIFTH book in the Edgar Award-winning Skip Langdon Series by Julie Smith.

DISTURBING FAMILY SECRETS, A CURIOUS KIDNAPPING, AND COLD-BLOODED MURDER HAUNT THIS GRITTY AND MYSTERIOUS SOUTHERN DRAMA.

Sugar Hebert arrives home from a ten-minute errand to find her husband shot to death and the rest of her family missing—including her daughter Reed, heir apparent to the Hebert restaurant dynasty, and Reed’s eleven-month-old daughter.

Detective Skip Langdon’s hunt for a murderer and the missing Hebert heirs embraces worlds within worlds—splendid but dangerous Garden District digs, Faubourg Marigny drug dens, broken-down projects, lowdown bars, an elegant hangout for crooked politicos, and a dealer’s crib masquerading as a sultan’s palace, harem and all. A palm reader warns Langdon of danger, but it comes when she’s least prepared for it. Before long, the mob’s involved (maybe there’s a reason Hebert’s Restaurant won the lucrative casino contract), and so are family secrets so ugly they’d make Tennessee Williams wince. Everyone has them—the Heberts, the mob princess, even the crooked cop.

And Langdon finds she should have listened to the damned palm reader.

Marriage is tough enough for average couples, but the complexities of being wed to an artificially created person presents unique challenges.

Mina is, by all accounts, content with her husband. She owes her existence to Tim, but over time yearns for something different and special. More love, more life, more fun, more friends, more laughter, more thoughts, more things, more “more”. Her restlessness causes her to search for answers to the nature of her being and the pursuit leads to an underground religious group known as the Association of God’s Children. However, it also results in Mina exiting her habitation zone without permission from CyberG, the company that built her.

The couple find themselves entrenched in a serious predicament. Mina is caught between Tim, the only love of her short life, and a spiritual search that threatens to reveal more about the nature of her being than she could possibly imagine. Tim thinks of her as an independent person, but his sensibilities are tested when she claims to have supernatural powers. Will Mina’s yearning for something more become their undoing? The authorities are closing in and time is running out for a happily ever after.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

It was the spring of 1989. I was sixteen years old, a junior in high school and an honors student. I had what every teenager wants: a stable family, a nice home in the suburbs, a great group of friends, big plans for my future, and no reason to believe that any of that would ever change.

Then came my mother’s psychosis.

I experienced first-hand the terror of watching someone I loved transform into a monster, the terror of discovering that I was to be her primary victim. For years I’ve lived with the sadness of knowing that she, too, was a helpless victim – a victim of a terrible disease that consumed and destroyed the strong and caring woman I had once called Mom.

My mother’s illness took everything. My family, my home, my friends, my future. A year and a half later I would be living alone on the street on the other side of the country, wondering whether I could even survive on my own.

But I did. That was how my mother – my real mother – raised me. To survive.

She, too, was a survivor. It wasn’t until last year that I learned that she had died – in 2007. No one will ever know her side of the story now. But perhaps, at last, it’s time for me to tell mine.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

The SECOND book in Edgar-winning author Julie Smith’s Rebecca Schwartz series.

A tasty treat of a San Francisco mystery—a crisp, tangy story you’re sure to get a rise out of.

To you, it’s just a frozen lump of dough; but to some, it’s life and death…

Especially to handsome Peter Martinelli, who wants to auction off the fabled sourdough starter from his family’s famous bakery. But who’d buy a frozen hunk of flour and water? Only, it turns out, every bakery in San Francisco, a national food conglomerate, and an upstart ringer with a mysterious backer.

Someone would even kill for it. And does.

Enter lawyer sleuth Rebecca Schwartz, whose client is her own partner, glamorous Chris Nicholson, Martinelli’s main squeeze before the ill-starred auction.

Rebecca noshes her way through the case in hilariously unorthodox style, tasting some great bread along the way, but also uncovering so many ancient jealousies, long-simmering feuds, and seething resentments that she barely escapes death by doughball.

NOTE: THIS STORY IS COMPLETELY REALITY-BASED! A SAN FRANCISCO BAKERY MADE PAGE ONE NEWS BY FREEZING THEIR STARTER –ONLY WITHOUT THE BLOODSHED.

The slapstick style, over-the-top action, and witty dialogue make Rebecca Schwartz an easy choice for fans of Janet Evanovich, Stephanie Bond, Dorothy Cannell, Elizabeth Peters, Sarah Strohmeyer, and Jennifer Crusie.

Only having his good friend, Cassie, and her family for support made the task bearable.

Cassie Strong never understood why people picked on Cody. He was sweet, sexy, and had a silly side that he showed only to her. When tragedy strikes her family, it’s Cody who is by her side and their friendship blossoms into something more.

But when Cody’s lifelong enemy threatens the one thing that could make him break his promise, will he risk losing Cassie or will he be strong enough to hold on to his father’s last wish?

Becoming Lola, by Harriet Steel, is regularly $3.99 but has been discounted to just 99 cents today in the Amazon Kindle store. This book has received an average user rating of 4.1 out of 5 stars based on 21 customer reviews.

Category: Historical Fiction

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Becoming Lola is the true story of an extraordinary woman who resolutely defied the conventions of her day, determined to wring every drop of excitement from life and love.

Born in 1821 in modest circumstances, Eliza Gilbert, as she then was, became the nineteenth century’s most notorious adventuress.

At sixteen, she ruined herself in the eyes of society when, to avoid an abhorrent arranged marriage, she ran away with one of her mother’s admirers. He married her, but she abandoned any chance of forgiveness when she refused to be trapped in an unhappy union and left him.

Many women would have vanished into increasingly desperate obscurity, but Eliza was no ordinary woman. She reinvented herself as Lola Montez, a Spanish aristocrat fallen on hard times. In that guise, she blazed like a firecracker through the courts of Europe and beyond, reputedly taking hundreds of lovers, including King Ludwig of Bavaria and the composer, Franz Liszt. She was a dancer, an actress, an intrepid traveller and, by the time of her early death, the second most famous woman in the world after Queen Victoria.

Then, in an act of twisted revenge, Kate’s kidnapped and imprisoned by her deadly enemy, his intention to force her to pay back the money she stole before he kills her.

Fate intervenes and she finds herself working against the cartels deep in the Yucatan with a group of off-the-grid commandos. From peaceful northern Arizona to the steamy jungles of Mexico, Kate Jones must decide for herself if she’ll continue to run…

And, with the possibility of an informant inside the DEA, she doesn’t know who she can trust.

Category: Christmas Fiction

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Here is the 20th Anniversary Edition of this much beloved modern Christmas classic.

Perhaps best said by the former national director of Angel Tree: “The Special Guest is much more than just a well-written family story… it sprinkles the principles of forgiveness with the wonder that is Christmas”.

A family dealing with a tragedy when an unexpected guest arrives for the holidays… A stranger who seems to have mysteriously stepped out of the past… A surprising chain of events that will teach the family about the miracle of forgiveness… A special gift left behind Christmas Day that causes the family to realize there are times, when needed the most, that help can come unexpectedly and unannounced… Sometimes from a perfect stranger…

This is a story befitting the most wonderous time of year. A time when we lift our heads from the day-to-day grind of life to look at humanity with our spiritual eyes. When we rejoice to hear the bells chime a message of hope for the world. When we look to believe there really is more to this world than just what we can see and hear with our natural senses…

Open THE SPECIAL GUEST and enter a world we all want to believe to be true. Someone once said, “To feel the brush of the supernatual is to experience, firsthand, the heavenly messengers at work around us.” This beloved story will renew your faith in miracles. Even more important, it will renew your faith in your fellowman.

Introduction…

The story opens Christmas weekend with 16-year-old Scott Reid working his bagboy job at the local super market. After watching an elderly man sitting outside in the cold all afternoon reading, Scott decides to approach the stranger to see if he needs help. The man, who is dressed in clothes as outdated as his vintage automobile, explains he was passing through when his car broke down. Not wanting the man who calls himself Zachery to be stranded over the long holiday weekend, Scott invites him home. Soon after the guest arrives, unexpected events begin to unfold that will leave the Reid family to wonder if more than chance brought the stranger to their home. Finally on Christmas morning, they waken to a most unexpected surprise. It’s then the family discovers the identity of their guest. What they learn is most surprising and mysterious of all. . .

20 years ago THE SPECIAL GUEST grew from a story first written by Lee Allen for his young children, to a local bestseller in hometown Richmond Virginia, and from there to a national besteller that included a movie project with CBS. The story’s timeless message of forgiveness, wrapped in the mystery of a very special visitor, will warm readers’ hearts today as much as it did for readers a generation ago.

The only thing worse than being a Hunter in the fae-ridden city of Harborsmouth, is hunting vamps in Bruges.

Being shipped off to Belgium sucks. The medieval city of Bruges is quaint, but the local Hunters’ Guild is understaffed, the canals are choked with dead bodies, and there’s no shortage of supernatural predators as likely suspects.

On second thought, maybe Bruges isn’t so bad after all.

With a desire to prove herself, protect the innocent, and advance within the ranks of the Hunters’ Guild, Jenna Lehane hits the cobbled streets of Bruges with blades at the ready. Someone, or something, is murdering tourists and dumping their bodies in the city’s scenic canals. With the help of a mysterious stranger, Jenna begins to piece together clues that are dotted throughout the city like blood spatter.

Determined to stop the killings, Jenna delves into a bloody local history that only raises more questions–but some secrets are best left buried. Jenna must put her combat training to the test as she struggles to unearth the truth about an ancient enemy.

Hunting in Bruges is the first novel in the Hunters’ Guild urban fantasy series set in the world of Ivy Granger.

Category: Humor

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

They’re back! Young attorney Bolo Jackson and the gang return for yet another round of legal exploits and disasters. Join Bolo as he grapples with the further antics of senior partner and loose cannon Mr. Fitzgerald; tightwad second-in-command Mr. Tolliver; and obnoxious arch-pain Vince Romello. You’ll meet new lawyer Jerry, who is two notches and one toga party below Bolo on the law firm totem pole. Of course, not everything Bolo touches ends in calamity. Some are near-misses, including Miss Lois, Miss Veronica, and Miss . . . . .

But let’s get back to the practice of law. The law is a jealous mistress, it’s been said. And she has plenty to be jealous about in the case of Bolo Jackson. Will Bolo’s “Invaders from Outer Space” defense work in court? How does Bolo solve a mystery that has stumped the legal community for decades? How does he deal with the ominous Sack of Death?

Practicing law in a small North Carolina firm back in the Andy of Mayberry era called for unorthodox tactics. You’ll see how Bolo and law partner Walt ended up in a threesome at the No-Tell Motel. You’ll be amazed what Bolo learns when he wiretaps the partners’ secret meeting. You’ll cringe at Bolo’s attempts to impress a visiting English lawyer.

And Bolo’s unpredictable romantic life, or lack thereof. Does steamy secretary Lois ever tire of hopping onto his lap? Does Veronica the Ice Princess ever warm up? And just how dense is Bolo, to escort a third gal to a function also attended by Lois and Veronica?

Somehow one young lawyer really was this dumb, and lucky. Despite all the catastrophes and near-disasters, everyone agrees that Bolo Jackson really is . . . Such a Good Lawyer.

Funny, charming, ridiculous, and strangely true, you’ll never look at the legal profession the same after reading this sequel to the popular Pardon Me for Protruding and Other True Tales: A Young Lawyer’s Life, Learning, and Loves. A memoir by Bolaride Jackson, Attorney at Law.

Technology So Valuable It Could Change Your Life…Or End it
When Cryptologist Alton Blackwell takes his girlfriend, FBI Agent Mallory Wilson, on a surprise trip to Italy, the couple expects the vacation of a lifetime, but their pleasure is short-lived. Intent on selling Vidulum Inc.’s proprietary technology to the highest bidder, a rogue employee of the high-tech company arranges a clandestine meeting at one of Rome’s most famous tourist attractions.

Despite their efforts to leave the tragedy behind and continue their vacation, Alton and Mallory soon learn their own lives are in danger. They are left with no choice but to join forces with the Roman police in an effort to crack the case. While diving into the investigation, the discovery of another man in Mallory’s past disrupts Alton’s plan to move his relationship with her to a new level.

As they encounter unexpected twists at a breakneck pace, Alton and Mallory must summon all their intellectual powers to reveal the truth behind the Vidulum employee’s death and track down the missing technological plans before a life-threatening end game can be set in motion.

Grace Palmer’s British friends all think she’s living the American Dream. But her design business is floundering and when she discovers her husband is cheating with her best client, she panics and flees home to England.

The tranquil village of Saffron Sweeting appears to be a good place for Grace to lick her wounds, but the community is battling its own changes. Reluctantly, Grace finds herself helping her new neighbours as they struggle to adjust and save their businesses. However, not everyone has the same opinion on what’s good for the village. The charismatic new man in her life may have one speculative eye on Grace, but the other is firmly on profit. How will she navigate the tricky path between her home and her happiness?

With gentle humour and generous helpings of British tea and cake, Saving Saffron Sweeting explores one woman’s need to define herself through her career and community, before she can figure out who should be by her side.

For 300 years, America has been under assault, the enemy silent, unseen.

In the august halls of the Ivy League, a scholar uncovers shocking evidence of an unimaginable betrayal.

Professor Erika Carr uncovers a Revolutionary era espionage report, lost for centuries in a cache of Alexander Hamilton’s private documents. Dr. Carr is stunned when she discovers the intelligence reports were authored by Paul Revere. A clue hidden within the message suggests a second missive exists, waiting to be found.

Parker Chase joins her on a journey that leads to astonishing revelations about a centuries old conspiracy to destroy American independence. On Revere’s trail, they are attacked by a murderous syndicate of international powerbrokers intent on silencing them forever.

Running for their lives, Parker and Erika must outwit an invisible enemy while unraveling a conspiracy that stretches from the morally bankrupt halls of Wall Street to oil-soaked sands in the Middle East.
