Pushing Up Daisies

by Rosemary Harris

Meet Paula Holliday, a transplanted media exec who trades her stilettos for garden clogs when she makes the move from the big city to the suburbs to start a gardening business. Paula can handle deer, slugs and the occasional human pest – but she’s not prepared for the mummified body she finds while restoring the gardens at Halcyon, a local landmark.

Casual snooping turns serious when a body is impaled on a garden tool and one of Paula’s friends is arrested for the crime.

Aided by the still-hot aging rocker who owns the neighborhood greasy spoon, a wise-cracking former colleague, and a hot Mexican laborer with a few secrets of his own, Paula digs for the truth and unearths more dirty business the town has kept buried for years.

White Raven’s Lover

by Nhys Glover

The object of fear and hatred because of her colourless appearance and gift of prophesy, Brennwen has spent her short life trying to stay hidden from an ignorant and abusive world. But she can’t stay hidden from her prophetic dreams of unavoidable disaster that seem more curse than gift. Especially when one such dream concerns the soul of her child; a child she lost in the womb; a child who has reincarnated into a family of feared Romans. By leaving the safety she has found and joining forces with the enemy, can she change the destiny she has foreseen and save her son from his fate?

All Roman patricians aspire to power, glory and valour. Gaius believes he has fallen far short of those aspirations by becoming a military clerk and the diplomatic face of the Governor of Britannia. Since the death of his wife, he has buried himself in his work, resigned to being a failure in all areas of his life except as father to four year old Calidius.

When his son is kidnapped and becomes a helpless pawn in a devious plot to end the Roman occupation of Ancient Britannia, can Gaius put aside his prejudices and self-doubts for the sake of his child? Because to do so will mean following the uncanny dreams of a tiny Celtic seer, a woman who heats his blood as no other ever has, and journeying with her to the wilds of the North to take charge of a daring mission to reclaim his son and defeat the rebels. A mission more able men than he would have found almost impossible to carry out.

Augusta, a powerful sorceress and Blaise’s former fiancée, sees Blaise’s deed as the ultimate hubris and Gala as an abomination that must be destroyed. In her quest to save the human race, Augusta will forge new alliances, becoming tangled in a web of intrigue that stretches further than any of them suspect. She may even have to turn to her new lover Barson, a ruthless warrior who might have an agenda of his own . . .

Chickamauga: A Novel Of The American Civil War

by Blair Howard

Chickamauga is the story of the generals who planned the grand strategies that would be played out by lesser but braver men, and it’s the story of heroism, desperate deeds, and death and destruction on a scale the like of which had never been seen before.

Chickamauga is the story of Jesse Dixon and Patrick McCann, two boys in blue uniforms who must grow up before their time, and of Billy Cobb, a Confederate soldier who found himself at war, not only with the Union enemy, but also with his conscience. And it’s the story of Sarah Bradley, the daughter of a southern farmer, and Blake Winter a Yankee colonel who fell in love with her.

Chickamauga is the story of ordinary people in extraordinary times.

Sapphire And Shadow

by Marie Ferrarella

They could have had it all.

Johanna Whitney does seem to have it all–beauty, intelligence, talent, and a rich husband whose genius has created stunning films. What she is desperately trying to cover up is just how tragically that life is coming unraveled. Her husband’s drug use, fueled by his fear of being unable to replicate his success, renders him incapable of showing her the love she once gave up everything for. Her closest friend is killed in a plane crash and even her daughter seems to prefer her husband’s latest young lover to her own mother. The harder Johanna works at trying to patch the holes of her life, the more things come undone.

It all comes to a head on location in London. Johanna watches happiness slipping away and turns for comfort to a young British artisan. He tries to teach her to love herself again, and to dare to reach for happiness. Though he manages to awaken her emotions, her husband’s drug arrest in Italy and her daughter’s sudden illness make her realize she needs to go home–not to Los Angeles, but to New York.

Leaving all the wealth and influence she’s been living with behind, she and her daughter feel like refugees as they search for a place to live and a way to make a living. Both needs are answered when they find shelter with an old friend and colleague in his art gallery. Johanna is back to her roots in the art world, but she’s been gone a long time and she searches to find ways to heal and blossom. Even more difficult is the struggle to release her heart from the chains of fear and learn to love again.

Black Sunshine

by Ninie Hammon

SOME SECRETS WON’T STAY BURIED WITH THE DEAD.

NOT EVEN UNDER A MOUNTAIN.

After 2 decades of shame that drove him into a whiskey bottle and left him a homeless, under-a-bridge drunk, Will Gribbins has come home to the mountains to face his past.

Will and his best friend, Lloyd, were the only 2 survivors…

…of the 1980 explosion that killed 27 Eastern Kentucky miners in the Harlan #7 coal mine and shattered countless other lives in the close-knit small town of Aintree Hollow. But the 2 young men escaped the mine that day with more than just their lives. Each carried secrets about another tragedy that occurred deep in the guts of the mountains after the explosion. Those secrets decimate the next 2 decades of their lives.

Will returns to the hollow for the first time in 20 years for the memorial service on the anniversary of the disaster–determined to confess what he did. The mountains are just as he left them; the people who live there are not.

Granny Sparrow’s grief has imprisoned her.

JoJo bears the invisible stamp of a family heritage that will kill her.

Jamey is … is what? How can Will explain the boy’s psychic ability? The magical statues he carves out of lumps of coal?

And Lloyd wants to kill him.

Will doesn’t realize that his arrival has unleashed powerful forces that will endanger the lives of another crew of miners digging coal in a mile-deep hole under Black Mountain. Only this time, the explosion that kills them won’t be an accident. This time, it will be murder.

Will doesn’t see the mounting danger, though. Or that Jamey and his pet mine canary, ValVleen, hold the key to it all.

When the unthinkable happens and the fate of innocent miners is again placed in Will’s hands, can he summon the courage he lacked 2 decades ago? Is Will man enough now to save them–even if it means he must face the horror he’s been running away from all these years?

Will he leave the miners behind, buried alive?

Or will he die with them, gasping for breath in the dark until there’s no air left?

Meet Alexis Parker, former OIO operative, currently trying to make a name for herself in the private sector. With a limited job history, the state of the economy, and her own internal struggle concerning her competence as an investigator, Alex is forced to take the only job she is offered.

Enter eccentric, playboy, CEO James Martin. Martin Technologies is a multi-million dollar corporation that James Martin has nurtured from the ground up with his workaholic tendencies. But now that Mr. Martin’s life is being threatened, what’s a guy to do besides hire an attractive, feisty, former federal agent to be his new security consultant and personal bodyguard.

As Alex attempts to navigate the minefield of potential suspects, she gradually uncovers an underlying conspiracy that has been brewing at Martin Technologies for almost half a decade. Anyone could be involved, making all of Martin’s closest friends, acquaintances, and employees possible suspects. What starts out as a single death threat quickly morphs into a plot to overtake his entire company. Once the pieces start to fall into place, things begin to explode, both literally and figuratively for Alex, as the physical danger looms ever more menacingly overhead. This outwardly simple case quickly becomes something neither Alex nor Martin ever imagined as the situation continues to escalate rapidly out of control. It will take all of Alex’s training and instincts to be able to track down the criminal mastermind and stop the assassination plot before it’s too late.
