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

Accompanied by her dear old boss Angelica Auer, Trudi has a new career — and a new life — in the beautiful and mysterious city of Prague. Sure, she might not be speaking to her mother, and she might be dreaming about her new coworker slightly more than she should, but Trudi still feels like she has grown up.

Just like she planned, Trudi is getting firsthand experience with Old World cuisine. But her plans are ruined when her elderly landlady dies in puzzling circumstances. Trudi is certain the old lady has been murdered — despite the police claiming it was an accident.

No matter who comes after her, or who tries to stop her, Trudi is determined to discover the truth of what really happened to the owner of Prague’s most famous spice shop.

“Murder and Pestle” is a clean cozy mystery, set in Europe. It is the follow-up to the clean cozy mystery “Knife Skills,” set in California.

1790, French Caribbean: biracial plantation owner Patrice Beaumont is known as a “kinder” slave master, but his trusted friend reminds him that is no cause for pride. He claims to be committed to ending slavery, but his actions don’t back-up his words. Is being the “best of the worst” all he’s capable of?

1863, New York City: Giant Irish street fighter Patrick Allen is days away from battling it out with a similarly oversized black fighter, when the Draft Riots ignite dangerous racial conflicts around the city. Never one to take sides outside the ring or join a fight he can’t win, he steers clear of the angry mobs. So when he stumbles on a lynching in progress, who can expect him to do anything more than look away?

Modern day, New York City: Patrick Walsh, a day trader by occupation and a daydreamer by disposition, sits alone on his terrace trading his portfolio while gazing out at the city skyline. Alone feels right…always has, and he’s fairly certain, always will.

Besides having a similar name and a proclivity to make cowardly mistakes, what mystery ties these men together?

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

Scientists predicted it would take seventy years for the Arctic Shelf to completely melt. In the end, it took less than five. We lost thirty percent of our land to the oceans and a big chunk of our structure to panic and anarchy.

The Melt crippled us.

But it was the Arctic Virus at the bottom of The Melt, trapped for millennia in the darkest depths of ice strata, that broke us. The real flood was the Living Corpses. A population of billions turned to soulless, rabid shells within months. That’s what washed away the human race as we know it.

Born into a post-apocalyptic world, Lake has grown up in the last city standing. Governed by what used to be the Queen’s Cold Stream Guard, vaccinated against the threat, life in Windsor City is both harsh and fair. The rules are designed to strengthen the city and ensure survival.

Lake’s future is planned out with opportunities and unfair advantages and then there’s Ash—her best friend and hopefully more. Things could be worse, considering she’s living past the end of days. And, sometimes, she could definitely do with being a better person, which was what drafting into the Guard for two years of service was supposed to be about.

But she has no idea what she’s signed up for. The city is more vulnerable than she’d ever imagined, on its knees at the mercy of a megalomaniac organisation, and she’s just been chosen to pay the price.

“…a fully imagined, gripping read….” – Kirkus Reviews

WINNER: Pinnacle Book Achievement Award, Fall 2014 – Best Book in the Category of FANTASY

WINNER: Awesome Indies Seal of Excellence

After centuries of religiously motivated war, the world has been split in two. Now the Blessed Lands are ruled by pure faith, while in the Republic, reason is the guiding light-two different realms, kept apart and at peace by a treaty and an ocean.

Children of the Republic, Helena and Jason were inseparable in their youth, until fate sent them down different paths. Grief and duty sidetracked Helena’s plans, and Jason came to detest the hollowness of his ambitions.

These two damaged souls are reunited when a tiny boat from the Blessed Lands crashes onto the rocks near Helena’s home after an impossible journey across the forbidden ocean. On board is a single passenger, a nine-year-old girl named Kailani, who calls herself The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky. A new and perilous purpose binds Jason and Helena together again, as they vow to protect the lost innocent from the wrath of the authorities, no matter the risk to their future and freedom.

But is the mysterious child simply a troubled little girl longing to return home? Or is she a powerful prophet sent to unravel the fabric of a godless Republic, as the outlaw leader of an illegal religious sect would have them believe? Whatever the answer, it will change them all forever… and perhaps their world as well.

About the Author:

 

david litwack

 

The urge to write first struck when working on a newsletter at a youth encampment in the woods of northern Maine. It may have been the night when lightning flashed at sunset followed by northern lights rippling after dark. Or maybe it was the newsletter’s editor, a girl with eyes the color of the ocean. But he was inspired to write about the blurry line between reality and the fantastic .

Using two fingers and lots of white-out, he religiously typed five pages a day throughout college and well into his twenties. Then life intervened. He paused to raise two sons and pursue a career, in the process becoming a well-known entrepreneur in the software industry, founding several successful companies. When he found time again to daydream, the urge to write returned.

He’s published three novels so far in this new stage of his life: There Comes a Prophet, Along the Watchtower, and the recently released The Daughter of the Sea and the Sky.

David and his wife split their time between Cape Cod, Florida and anywhere else that catches their fancy. He no longer limits himself to five pages a day and is thankful every keystroke for the invention of the word processor.

Aurelia Fridell is a freak amongst her own kind, the only werewolf who can’t shift.

Her family loves and accepts her, but the other packs treat her as if she were a flea-ridden stray, even though she’s the Pack Alpha’s daughter. She’s made peace with her rank, but lately, the hair on the back of her neck raises at odd times, and she thinks someone is following her. She dismisses the thoughts and the fact that her headaches are getting worse.

Then her tires get slashed, her house gets broken into, and the only person she can trust turns out to be the one man who doesn’t want her.

Ceithin Starkley came to Connecticut for one thing, and one thing only: to get Henrikki Fridell off his back about joining his ironworking company. He figures he’ll get in, look at the job, then turn down the offer so he can head back home. Only his plan isn’t so simple once he gets a whiff of Aurelia and his wolf won’t let him leave while she’s in danger. Now all he has to do is send his girlfriend home, woo Aurelia, and fight off her over-protective brothers to prove he’s a worthy male.

Easy, right?

But when Aurelia’s stalker escalates and kidnaps her, Ceithin must work with Aurelia’s family to rescue her from a faceless enemy.

He’s fought to ignore her, but now can’t live without her. Will he find her before it’s too late?

The clock is ticking.

When an insecure, bi-racial woman begins a cloak-and-dagger love affair with a Japanese American man, she is intent on keeping her bigoted family in the dark albeit with devastating consequences. On the night of her brother’s murder, Deena Hammond stumbles upon Takumi Tanaka, lost and on the wrong end of a .32. After rescuing him from the certain fate driving through the hood in a Porsche will bring, a sweet kind of friendship begins. A balm for her grief. Maybe, Deena likes to think, it happened the day her white mother killed her black father. Or maybe, it was always a part of them, like DNA gone bad. Whatever the case, Deena knows that her family would never approve, hell, never acknowledge her fast-growing love for Takumi. And had he never made love to her that way, in that unraveling, soul-searching sort of way, she could’ve done the same. But love’s a devil that way. So, their game begins. One where they hide what they are from everyone. Anyone. And Tak understands this for now. After all, Deena’s career hinges on the favor of her mentor and boss, Tak’s hard-ass of a father. And the Hammond family is already stretched thin with grief. Yet, each step Deena takes toward family and career brings her closer to an acceptance she’s never had. And away from him.

Sometimes life brings you to a split second when you suddenly understand everything is about to change forever.
But now Stan knew he didn’t want to be the shallow bad boy Marilyn had described. He wanted to be the man Carrie Moon had loved.

On a cool October evening in 1994, attorney Karen Moon enters an enchanting little jazz club, in San Diego and unexpectedly falls hopelessly in love with the star attraction, trumpeter Stan Benedict. Although Stan is a world class flirt, who has every woman in the audience longing to go home with him, Karen hears a deeper truth in his music. Behind the performer’s confident, shallow mask is a vulnerable, lonely man longing to be loved.

Karen risks her chance of partnership at Warrick, Thompson by secretly crossing ethical boundaries to save the club from destruction by her client, Waterfront Development. She and Stan begin a tumultuous affair that culminates in an unplanned pregnancy and a hasty marriage. But their relationship is increasingly threatened by the demands of Karen’s job as a highly paid securities lawyer and by the rising crescendo of Stan’s frequent infidelities. Through mounting heartbreak, Karen struggles to hold on to Stan until they are swept apart by a tide of personal and professional loss.

Thirteen years later, longing for forgiveness, Stan reappears in Karen’s life. Now a superior court judge and married to Warrick, Thompson partner Howard Morgan, Karen is faced with Howard’s threats to destroy her if she leaves their marriage.

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

Darla McKendrick is nine when she first hears her mother and her aunt Didi secretly discussing their younger sister, Rebecca, speculating about her life in squalor. From the moment Darla asks to know more about her mysterious aunt, she is offered nothing but half-truths, distortions, and evasions.

As Darla grows into her teen years, her life is oddly yet profoundly affected by this woman she has never known. She can’t help but notice that Rebecca seems to exist only in dark corners of conversations and that no one ever wants to talk about her—with Darla. Neither Darla nor her three cousins have a clue about their aunt, yet their respective parents appear to recoil in fear at the sound of her name.

SQUALOR, NEW MEXICO is a 1970s coming-of-age story shrouded in family mystery. As the plot takes twists and turns, secrets are revealed not only to Darla but to the “secret keepers” as well. Darla learns that families are only as strong as the truths they hold and as weak as the secrets they keep.

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

The year is 1202 and the Catholic Church rules the hearts and minds of all Europeans. The leader of the Church, Pope Innocent III, issues a summons to every able bodied man and boy: Take up arms and reclaim Jerusalem from the Muslims. The un-civilized world has been called to wage holy war.

In the streets of Barcelona, Spain, Rayjo de Merafiza is celebrated as a hero of the Third Crusade. His name is known throughout the land. But the peaceful life has never been Rayjo’s purpose, and now he must join the Fourth Crusade. His two adolescent sons are also deemed fit for service and they follow their father to war.

Ruggiero is Rayjo’s first son and his quiet, passive nature puts him on the path to Catholic priesthood. In seminary, Ruggiero is confronted with the horrors of religious fanaticism disguised as holy providence. When he joins his father, his pious teachings are put to the ultimate test. Juan is Rayjo’s younger son and is endowed with his father’s violent, unrestrained temper.

As the armies of Christianity gather for the greatest war of their lives, a few powerful men and unfortunate circumstances turn the Europeans away from their intended target and onto Constantinople, the most unlikely of targets. The Orthodox Greeks are forced to furiously defend their homeland.

Set against the backdrop of Europe’s tumultuous Dark Ages, Butler weaves the tragic tale of the Fourth Crusade. From the streets of Barcelona to the mighty battles in the East, readers will come to understand how the greatest army in the world assaulted the wrong nation. How Christians slaughtered Christians in the pursuit of money, power and perhaps most important of all…Legacy.

He is not prepared for Grace.

Independent, strong, and decidedly feminine, Grace Buscher is living her childhood dream. While friends and family watch concerned and amazed, she pinches pennies into dollars as the most successful (and only) house-spinster in the greater Rockland area.

When Nolan meets Grace, two worlds collide resulting in accidents, misunderstandings, and one silly serenade to a mouse.

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

A memoir from a retired firefighter about firefighting, rescue calls and life around the firehouse.

It’s not all about fire – that’s lesson number one.

No, it’s a collection of things: assisting an injured person at three o’clock in the morning, calming a child in a traumatic situation, saving the belongings of a family from the ravages of a fire, seeing people in every heartbreaking situation imaginable and trying to help them, while not losing yourself in the process.

And it’s about the insanity found in the firehouse – to the author it’s the Cracker Factory – and the politics and pettiness that try unsuccessfully to steal the joy from the job. This book is the blue-collared view of a career firefighter. The seventeen stories in Notes from the Firehouse take the reader on a journey with the everyday firefighter from his first days as a rookie, to his last fire that prematurely sends him into retirement.

He survives but burns with an overwhelming hunger for revenge.

Thirteen years later, Matthew – now a Spokane County sheriff – realizes that Top Hat is riding again with a new gang called the Mad Hatters. It means risking his friends, his family and the love of a good woman, but Matthew must find the man who destroyed what he once loved most in the world. To that end, he and his posse venture into Idaho gold country to capture the Mad Hatters.

Top Hat, however, has a different idea. He turns the tables, heading to the sheriff’s hometown of Granville and going after everyone Matthew holds dear.

What follows will haunt Sheriff Wilcox for the rest of his life as he confronts the hatred, vengeance and retribution buried deep in his own soul. Matthew will do anything, though, to put an end to A DEADMAN’S LAMENT.

In the face of ongoing external threats and simmering internal divisions, Natalie, Richard, and Daniel must each map the boundaries of their own loyalties and morality. In the Shadows of the Mosquito Constellation is a story of adventure, politics, and love in a brave new world where the rules have both changed, and stayed the same.

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

Sweet, sexy, and hardworking, Jesse O’Brien has plenty of girls who want his attention. Jesse, however, only has his sights on his future and becoming successful. The last thing he has on his mind is a Spring Break fling, so he doesn’t anticipate meeting the girl of his dreams when he’s only seventeen and knee-deep in crud, especially when she lives in the same house as the spoiled rich girl he despises.

The daughter of a wealthy real-estate proprietor, Kayla Jordan has her life mapped out too. Her dreams don’t include climbing the corporate ladder, though. Motherless since she was twelve, she only wants to meet the love of her life and live happily ever after.

When their dreams merge into one, the young couple has everything they ever wanted–until tragedy strikes. Now, thrust into a world of pain and heartbreak, family members insist they are too young. But when you find the love of your life, no matter how young you are, no matter what happens, the only thing you can do is hold on and Love Like Crazy.

Crafted for today’s new-adult readers, but with an old-fashioned cadence, Love Like Crazy will appeal to anyone who’s ever had a first love, an everlasting love. Although tastefully written, this coming-of-age story includes sexual scenes and adult situations appropriate for readers sixteen and older. Although this isn’t a Christian book, because it deals with tragedy and the steps of dealing with grief, it includes references to God.

This is the story of a young genius who grows into a hopeless romantic. We follow his life from age six, through high school at age twelve, and on to his decision to go back to college (for a PhD in Literature) after finishing his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in physics at eighteen.

A coming of age novel about life, decisions, love, and genius.

Killing Hemingway is a perfect book for teen and young adult readers, those who never liked Hemingway, and anyone who enjoys a bit of humorous fiction with a side of cute.

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

Cordelia is disabled and painfully shy but none of that matters when a stranger desperately needs her help. Shaken out of a routine that centers on caring for her odd family in Warsaw–her father is an academic with no life skills, her brother never leaves the villa, and her mother has dementia–she is forced to act. Zaremba, a wealthy businessman, is fleeing arrest when he stops to save her father’s life. He claims to be innocent and wants a favor as he seeks to turn the tables on the authorities. Cordelia is grateful but wary. Is he truly being persecuted or is he deceiving her? Her reluctant agreement to aid him plunges her into new realms of emotion. It is when he disappears, however, that she must gather all her courage and pursue the truth. Touching on human rights issues and real events in Europe, this is primarily a love story, intended for readers who enjoy language, conversation, and human relationships. It contains no graphic sex or violence.

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

One part biography, one part prayer book, this book is an essential for any Christian.

The foundation for Padre Pio’s work in the world was love. His love of God became intertwined with his love of humanity so that the two became inseparable and unwavering.

Padre Pio is notable not for his erudition or even his teachings, per se, but for the man he was and the intercessor he continues to be. Pio gave himself to Christ as a spiritual victim for the souls of sinners. With sweetness, humility, and good cheer, he brought everyone who encountered him closer to Christ.

People who met him understood immediately that they were in contact with a Christlike figure. Those who attended his Mass and saw his union with the divine felt as though they had witnessed in person Christ’s Passion on the Cross. During his lifetime, Padre Pio brought vast numbers back to devotion to Christ, and, as he himself foretold, in death he has been able to do still more.

All books in The Life and Prayers series come complete with a Touch-or-Click Table of Contents, divided by each section.

Enjoy.

SEA SCOUNDREL, Knave of Hearts, One of Four
A Sassy, Sexy, Humorous Gothic Historical

Lady Patience Kendall crossed the sea to marry, but her intended died before she arrived. Penniless and stranded, she found only one way to get home: Bring rich American Misses to England to find them titled husbands. At the ship, she realized their mothers expected each to wed the Marquess of Andover. She’d seek an introduction. On the journey, Captain Grant St. Benedict was anything but friendly. Just because her girls caused a few mishaps? Grant had never met a woman more irritating, or more desirable, than the Lady Patience Kendall. But however dangerous his interest, he couldn’t resist teaching the delicious distraction that independence was nothing to passion.

A history of SEA SCOUNDREL: In 1999, the book, LADY PATIENCE, needed to be cut in half to fit the Precious Gem Line for Kensington Publishing. Now, here in its full award-winning, uncut glory for the first time is the story of the Sea Captain and his Lady.
