Past Imperfect #1

by John Matthews

Two boys.

One Murder.

Sometimes justice takes more than a lifetime.

A car accident in California, a deadly assault in Provence, and two boys 30 years apart are left battling for their lives.

Dominic Fornier is the detective who finds himself at the heart of the investigation. A simple provincial case that becomes one of the largest and most important in French criminal history.

Fornier’s only hope is to prove the link between the two boys thirty years apart. A compulsive journey through forensic, medical and psychiatric evidence between France, the USA and London; a breathless paper chase of clues from a young boy’s psyche… and a desperate race against time with a killer who will stop at nothing.

No Accident

by Dan Webb

What if your boss secretly bought insurance on your life–then tried to kill you?

A fiery crash consumes three cars and the lives of those inside. The police blame reckless driving, but insurance investigator Alex Fogarty suspects a celebrated CEO staged the accident and murdered his own employees for insurance money.

Unfortunately, Alex’s boss cares more about a quick legal settlement than following the facts, and Alex can’t afford to lose his job–not while he’s underwater on five houses he bought before the real estate crash. But unless Alex can prove the crash was no accident, the young family of one of the drivers who died in the crash will face financial ruin.

Against his better judgment, Alex plots a way to challenge the CEO, but he knows he can’t do it alone. Especially when the body count starts rising.

With help from the CEO’s jilted wife and her star-crossed divorce lawyer, Alex pursues the case from L.A.’s seamy underside to the mansions of Bel Air. If he can keep ahead of the CEO’s chilling enforcer, Alex may just discover the dark truth.

Country Baking Quick Breads And Muffins

by June Kessler

Quick Breads can be made in minutes, since they do not require the prolonged kneading and lengthy rising and proofing. Instead of yeast, these breads are made with rising agent such as baking powder or baking soda that begins to release gas bubbles the moment it is moistened. When making quick breads, it is important to blend the wet ingredients separately and combine then just before baking. Swift, gently mixing is essential because if the batter is beaten too vigorously, the gluten in the flour will strengthen the mixture and the texture of the loaf or muffins will be tough. Also added some of our favorite coffee cake recipes, perfect with morning coffee, snacks or desserts.

Asylum Lake

by R. A. Evans

Memories are like water. Some float on the surface bright and clear. Some lie deeper – blurred by time and distance. Others rest far from the light in the depths of the darkness. These memories are best forgotten. At the bottom of Asylum Lake the unremembered have grown restless.

After the sudden death of his wife, Brady Tanner moves to the small Michigan town where he spent summers as a youth. But he soon learns that small towns can be stained by memories…and secrets too. As Brady is drawn into unearthing the secrets of the town and of the abandoned psychiatric hospital on the shores of Asylum Lake, he discovers a new love in an old friend. But there is an evil presence lurking beneath the waters of the lake. What is the source of this evil–and what does it want with Brady Tanner?

Neanderthal Seeks Human

by Penny Reid

There are three things you need to know about Janie Morris: 1) She is incapable of engaging in a conversation without volunteering TMTI (Too Much Trivial Information), especially when she is unnerved, 2) No one unnerves her more than Quinn Sullivan, and 3) She doesn’t know how to knit.

After losing her boyfriend, apartment, and job in the same day, Janie Morris can’t help wondering what new torment fate has in store. To her utter mortification, Quinn Sullivan- aka Sir McHotpants- witnesses it all then keeps turning up like a pair of shoes you lust after but can’t afford. The last thing she expects is for Quinn- the focus of her slightly, albeit harmless, stalkerish tendencies- to make her an offer she can’t refuse.

The Winter Letter

by D.E. Stanley

On his thirteenth birthday William Wesley (whom everyone calls Will) receives a strange letter from a so-called king. The letter is full of apologies that make no sense, so Will figures it’s some kind of a birthday surprise, but then there are three knocks on his front door. By the next morning his entire world is a smoking heap of ashes and every line written in the letter makes perfect sense.

Near the closing the letter reads:

Get on the 3:30 train. Go south. Get off at sunset and walk deep into the eastern woods. Knock on the door of the only house you come across…

Did this so-called king know what was going to happen beforehand or did he orchestrate the ordeal himself? Is he to blame or is he somehow magical? Will must know, so he sets out on an epic journey that takes him to a world full of magical magi and war, where he meets new friends and new enemies. In the end he comes face to face with the one who is truly responsible.

His life will never be the same.
