Carmine Luedke, a shy, narcoleptic bookkeeper hides from the world and comforts himself by reciting arcane mathematical equations and proofs. Unable to stay awake during the day, he works through the night balancing the books. But suddenly, the numbers aren’t adding up. One fateful night, an unexpected and shocking reunion with a long-lost friend he believed to be dead sends shockwaves through Carmine’s carefully crafted routine. She arrives with an urgent plea and vanishes into thin air, leaving him with more questions than answers. Desperate for clarity, Carmine’s life spirals into chaos, and he withdraws from the world, struggling to make sense of it all. His self-absorbed older sister, a battle-hardened deputy, and a wise Navajo Elder all attempt to reach him, but the question remains: is it already too late? Just like Fitzgerald’s Tender Is the Night and Nelson’s Bound, the characters grapple with their emotional scars, forcing readers to ponder whether it’s better to confront their past or bury it.
He’d made mistakes…more than a few and probably didn’t deserve the second chance he’d been given. But he was going to do everything he could to prove himself worthy of it. Ray didn’t have a single doubt that a number of individuals were wondering where he’d disappeared to. With luck it would stay that way…but if it didn’t he probably wouldn’t be around to worry about it. Not even a week ago he’d arrived on the island with a windfall of money to his name but no where to go. Being given another chance was the last thing he expected when he arrived…or that it came from the man he’d looked up to since he was a kid. But he and Jonathan Hansen had a lot in common…most of which neither one of them wanted to talk about. It was hard enough to live with. Now he was on his way to serve as a grounds-keeper of sorts to the long forgotten land that Jonathan’s ancestors had foregone to make the island their hidden sanctuary instead. He had no idea what he was going to find when he finally arrived…and neither did Jonathan.
John Benton thinks he has nothing left to lose. He’s lost his job, he’s lost his home, he’s barely making enough to survive in a sweltering one-room pit in downtown Los Angeles—and then he finds out his wife is pregnant. When he hears about a game where the players are making thousands of dollars, he thinks this could be their ticket to a better life. But he didn’t count on the guns. Or the danger. Or that he’d be going up against players who will do anything, double- or triple-cross anyone, to win a game with no rules. He definitely didn’t count on the adrenaline rush. And now, the game is out to destroy him. Benton has to play for his life and the lives of his wife and unborn child, in a game where the deck is stacked against him and the house always wins. Play the Game is an exciting, fast-paced thriller by Robin Morris, where nothing is as it seems, and trust is an illusion.
An Amazon Top 50 bestseller. He’s seven years older, a grumpy single dad, and sheriff of our small town; but a little taste, and we can’t get enough. Aiden Stone is a six-foot-two former Marine with a permanent scowl, dark hair, and dreamy blue eyes. He’s the oldest of the Stone brothers, and his “by the book” family has battled mine for control of our small town for generations. The last thing I should do is sleep with him. Or nearly run him over with my truck. Especially since he’s sort-of my new boss. It doesn’t help that my grandmother (the mayor) is a former magician, and my mom is a psychic (sort-of)… And my dad died in a failed escape-artist attempt (that my mother is convinced was a murder). Trust me, I know crazy, but I’m just plain ole Britt Bailey, Shania Twain-loving, non-magical forensic photographer. Yes, I take pictures of dead things, but I don’t see them in my bedroom at night. I only want to see one thing in my bedroom at night, and when I’m called home to help Sheriff Stone on an investigation, he actually stops frowning for a minute, and my teenage fantasies get very real.
Everyone at the party had a secret. Someone killed to keep theirs. London, 1922. Draper’s daughter Marjorie Swallow is 24, independent, and determined to live life to the full. A secretarial post with enigmatic American detective Mrs Jameson looks just the ticket. And soon she’s in the thick of it. When the bohemian party they attend ends in murder, there is no shortage of suspects. Half of Bloomsbury wanted Mrs Norris dead – but who wielded the knife? Was it the handsome but troubled artist? The vivacious young actress? Or even the aristocratic lady novelist? Marjorie and Mrs Jameson must find the true killer to save an innocent man from the noose. From the garden squares of Bloomsbury to the seedy backstreets of Soho, they navigate the glamour and peril of Jazz Age London in a thrilling story of secrets and lies. Marjorie needs all her wit, pluck and charm in this perilous hunt for the killer. This classic murder mystery will keep you guessing to the very last page. The first in the 1920s Murder Mystery series, Blackmail in Bloomsbury will delight fans of Agatha Christie, Magda Alexander and Benedict Brown.
The sequel to “Feed Thy Gut: My Story of Discovering a Natural, Drug-free Approach to Treating Multiple Sclerosis, Acne, and Depression.” Deciding to deal with an autoimmune disease on your own – or any sickness for that matter – taking the daunting task of getting better upon yourself, is one hell of a project. Equal parts self-help, personal memoir, and essay, this is a first-hand account of how David treated MS on his own by changing his diet and implementing various lifestyle tweaks; a journey that took him from an increasingly debilitating state to fit, healthy, and virtually symptom free; from being constantly sick with colds and flus, to practically becoming bulletproof – all without the use of conventional medicines or drugs in any form. (Nor any unconventional.) On these pages David strips things down to the basics and dispenses of all the fancy stuff; outlines his practical, user-friendly methods, honed over time; and shares clever tips, tricks and valuable insights he picked up along the way. His main aim being to address the underlying causes instead of merely poking at the symptoms; simply put, a holistic approach to health.

We’ve been staring at each other’s private parts from the moment we first laid eyes on each other. But I can’t date him. I shouldn’t even talk to him. And why he’s showing up at the hotel deli where I work, volunteering to slice the salami is a mystery to me. I’m running from a terrible situation, and I need to keep my head down and avoid the world.
