The starship Freedom is just a museum ship. Until the aliens attack!
The starship Freedom was once a mighty warship. Today she’s a tourist attraction. The space wars ended long ago. The Freedom is now a flying museum. The tourists love it. The Changing of the Guard, the starfighter aerobatics, the starboard cannon salute . . . it’s the best show in the galaxy.
James King commands the starship Freedom. He hates his job. He was a real soldier once. Back when the Freedom was a real warship. He never imagined himself running a tourist trap. Right after Christmas, he plans to retire.
Then, on Christmas day, the aliens attack. Horrifying aliens. Creatures of claws, fangs, and endless malice. Within hours, they devastate Earth’s military. Millions die.
So much for retirement.
The aliens spare the starship Freedom. After all, she’s only a tourist attraction. But not to Commander King. He will get his beloved starship battle-ready. He will enter the fight. The Freedom will fly to war again!

The Dead aren’t Talking. But the Cat is…
One day is all it takes for Juli to burn down the pizza parlor, lose her job, and walk in on her hubby…and the younger cutie next door.
The childish invite in the mail might just be her saving grace, or is something more sinister in store?
Because the town of Veil Falls and its inhabitants are far from ordinary. And moving there challenges every notion she’s ever had about what’s real. Add in a strange inheritance, an overbearing ghost, and a snarky recipe grimoire, and maybe even misfits like her deserve a second chance to get things right.
But first, as the newly appointed fledgling soup witch to Snips and Snails Café, she’ll need to get cooking, embrace her inner witchiness, and solve her uncle’s murder before she runs out of time and the killer strikes twice.
Will her do-over really lead to her dead and under?

…and then they realize they have the wrong guy…
The real resident is missing…and the identity of the victim is a mystery…
And someone isn’t too keen on Juli solving it…
CAULIFLOWER KALE CAPER

She should have known better.
Because now there’s a dead body in the pantry of Lovelace Resort.
Is he the hapless victim of the fastidious chef because he didn’t do the dishes?
Or was his death the result of a million-dollar heist gone wrong?
…If that’s not complicated enough, Grams’ sister Annabel is sending her distressing messages asking for help…that’s out of this world…

Then her estranged father’s widow contacts her and asks her to come to Sanibel Island to help settle his affairs. Eliza sees the trip to a place called Shellseeker Beach as a distraction from her loss, and maybe a way to get some closure on the difficult relationship she’d had with her father.

With the help of Teddy’s healing heart, Eliza discovers a family she never knew she had, a purpose she never knew she needed, and a life she never dreamed was possible.
Come to Shellseeker Beach and fall in love with a cast of unforgettable characters who face life’s challenges with humor, heart, and hope. For lovers of riveting and inspirational sagas about sisters, secrets, romance, mothers and daughters…and the moments that make life worth living.

There are lots of stories about the children of gods. But what about those cursed by the gods, and their descendants…
El, a seventeen-year-old, has inherited an ancient and deadly power. She loses control of it, causing a horrific accident, and becomes the prey of a secret organisation, known as the Order.
Forced from her family and home, she hides in plain sight amidst the crowds of London, and is thrust into a world she never knew existed; one full of arete, beings with extraordinary powers like hers.
Arete can trace their lineage and powers from ancient Greece. They do not claim their inheritance comes from the gods, rather legend says they are descended from cursed beings, such as Medusa.
At the heart of their world is the kerykeion, the symbol that protects them from the humans and the humans from them. El is trapped between two factions, one that has built an empire around the kerykeion and another that is determined to bring it down.
As she is drawn deeper into the conflict, the only way to find the truth is to take matters into her own hands, and the line between friend and foe becomes dangerously blurred.
