Book Description:

with an out-of-this-world twist!

Your next favorite British cozy…
but with a hint of the paranormal.

You’re going to fall in love with Kate Benedict. Kate’s a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed upstart architect who solves mysteries in lively London. But this seemingly run-of-the-mill traditional cozy lead has a superpower of sorts up her sleeve: she sees auras that swirl above people’s heads when they’re about to die. These mysterious, death-predicting omens are challenging—since no one ever believes Kate when she tries to warn them. And big-hearted Kate just can’t help but help them avoid the unthinkable—at all costs. Now available as a complete box set, this irresistible murder mystery series is a guaranteed addiction for international suspense armchair travelers, traditional cozy lovers, anglophiles, and anyone who likes their cozy female sleuths smart, savvy, and a tad psychic.

Life spins out of control for Kate Benedict when she begins seeing a dancing aura above certain people’s heads that seems to signal death. Suddenly she’s psychic. But psychic’s not acceptable in her circle, where the supernatural is strictly for the superstitious. Yet…people close to her are dying. Kate’s attempts to discuss her new-found metaphysical gift are met with eye rolls; she can’t even tell the Scotland Yard detective who’s investigating the death of her close friend, Rebecca. And now Rebecca’s neighbor has an aura.

Two politicians have the death-predicting auras Kate can see. The only way to get to the two pols is via her old friend, DCI Clarke; yet her warnings go unheeded, and even her best friend, Anita, refuses to believe in the auras’ existence—even when one appears over her boss. And then Anita develops her own aura.

A quiet dinner date with an old friend turns into a manhunt when Kate arrives at the rendezvous just in time to find her friend Ethan disappearing into a taxi. Kate is alarmed to see the distinctive swirling pattern above his head. A series of cryptic text messages send Kate searching for Ethan at his sister’s house in Florence, but whatever danger threatened Ethan in London has followed Kate to Italy—his sister Claire has a matching aura!

Kate is off to a glamorous weekend party in Scotland at the formerly grand castle belonging to the uncle of her boyfriend Josh. But the festive occasion turns solemn when Kate notices an aura above the head of Josh’s beloved Uncle Fergus. Thus is the scene set for a deliciously traditional British cozy with a touch of the paranormal thriller—complete with ghostly characters from the past; medieval weapons collection; a ruined, closed-off wing of the castle; a castleful of dodgy house guests, all wrapped up in mysterious Scottish gloom… warmed by a cozy library fire and a nearly priceless collection of single malt scotches.

It looks like a plum job for architect Kate Benedict—she’s been sent to Amsterdam to repurpose an ancient mansion, happily assigned to work with an old friend. But it’s a catastrophe—nearly everyone involved has an aura. The team hears voices in empty rooms and discovers hidden passageways, and Kate knows the house conceals a secret. One that someone will kill to keep.

Harried, overworked architect Kate Benedict has no sooner stepped off the ferry to a tiny, remote island in Seychelles, primed to de-stress and celebrate at a destination wedding, than she spots imminent danger – auras spinning above the heads of two people on the dock. One’s a stranger, but the other’s the groom! Evidence is mounting that a murderer lurks amid the serene natural beauty. Until they can find the murderer, Kate and Josh have to keep the groom safe and fend off the worst wedding crasher ever – Death!

Book Description:

One June night, on a dark country road, two worlds—one of privilege and wealth, one modest and plain—collide, and tragedy forces two families together, causing both to question the lives they lead.

Taylor Loden, future heiress to her father’s media empire, is fused 24/7 to her two cell phones, wakes up in the middle of the night to check emails, and has never examined her breakneck work pace or her empty life until she meets the Old Order Amish Yoder family of Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Taylor has zero desire to muck a barn or strip tobacco, yet feels compelled, for reasons she’s not prone to analyze, to temporarily trade her technology-fueled business life in Philadelphia for country life without electricity on the Yoder farm. While she strives to adapt to Amish life, she bonds with the family, especially with two of the Yoder siblings: Jacob and Becca.

Jacob, the eldest son, refuses to baptize and join the church, and according to his frustrated father, lacks direction. He not only faces a grave physical challenge resulting from his actions that June night, but also harbors a secret that threatens to upend his family and community.

Becca is 16, just entering her rumspringa, the time period when she is free to explore the normally forbidden modern world. When Taylor returns to her Philadelphia penthouse, Becca accompanies her for the summer and for the first time is exposed to city life—museums, music, technology, restaurants, fashion, even religious faiths different from her own.

Taylor mentors Becca’s city fling and helps Jacob conceal his secret, actions that jeopardize her relationship with the Yoder family and her father. As the two cultures clash, both families struggle to determine whether the deep ties that bind them are greater than the differences that may tear them apart. Ultimately, Taylor, Jacob and Becca must answer for themselves: Are we more than what we do for a living or where we’re born? And if so, what price, if any, is too steep to walk away from family expectations?

The Dividing

Author: Devin Downing

Genre: Fantasy

Free via Kindle Unlimited: Yes

Regular Price: $4.99
Today’s Price: $0.99

Click Here to Buy!

Book Description:

Adamic is the language of the Gods. When spoken, it has the power to create worlds, to raise the dead, to make man as God. Fortunately, no one has spoken it in thousands of years. The only remnants are the written spells.

The people of Cavernum depend on these spells. They’re etched into the city walls, fending off the feeders—deadly creatures with a thirst for human blood. Yet for the lower class, Cavernum isn’t much safer. Children starve, and illness runs rampant. Only the elite have access to magic, and status must be earned. One’s class is determined by a single competition: The Dividing. Those who excel join the guild of their choice. The rest are sent to the fields, condemned to a life of slave-labor.

Princess Roselyn Malik has trained her entire life for The Dividing. She’s guaranteed a spot in the royal orchestra, but equalist rebels threaten her throne. To secure her crown, Rose must acquire the power and prestige associated with the guard. Only guardsmen have access to the amulets—powerful weapons that grant dominion over the elements.

Meanwhile, in Colorado, Matt will do anything to help his terminally-ill adoptive mother. For now, that means poaching to pay the bills. Until one day, Matt is attacked by a feeder and plunged into the world of Cavernum. There too, Matt is drawn to the guard, in search of a magic strong enough to save his mother.

But danger lurks beyond the walls, and Cavernum won’t be safe for long.
