Murder at Timber Bridge by Kd Easley (1 print book) – Randi Black is overwhelmed. She’s the single mom of teenage twins, is battling a coworker with wandering hands, has just run into an ex boyfriend who wants to rekindle the old fire, and had to take a job working for her ex husband. What she doesn’t need right now is to get caught up in the middle of a murder investigation. As the body count rises, Randi is forced to uncover a killer, neutralize her stalker and get her sons to school on time. It’s almost more than a woman can handle.

Second Chances by Maria Savva (2 print books) – Told from the perspective of both the husband and wife, Second Chances is a story of a relationship breaking down. Many will relate to the emotions felt by the couple as they try to work through their problems caused by years of silence where there should have been words. Although dealing with a serious subject, Second Chances is an uplifting and, in parts, a very humorous read.

Then dynamic Tanner walks into her office and proposes that she pretend to date him in order to assess the mental well-being of Tessa, his orphaned niece. Erin falls hard and fast for the man. As an added bonus, she and Tessa come to adore each other. But like all things too good to be true, she discovers her perfect stud may be a perfectly deceptive dud.

Nexus Point by Jaleta Clegg (4 e-book copies) – Stranded on a primitive world, betrayed by her crew, facing death at the hands of the natives, hunted by drug smugglers, Captain Dace has one hope of rescue – convince the Patrol agent trying to kill her that she’s innocent.

Madness and Murder by Jenny Hilborne (2 e-book copies) – Frustrated by the rising body count and lack of evidence, veteran homicide detective, Mac Jackson, questions his own ethics when he risks the life of an innocent young woman to trap a cunning and sadistic serial killer. Known for his uncanny precision with a hunch, he is all too aware that, this time, the stakes are much higher if his gamble fails to pay off. Jessica Croft, withdrawn, vulnerable and emotionally scarred, moves from Sacramento to begin a new life in San Francisco with her twin brother, Judd. Her chance for happiness is short-lived when she suddenly finds herself the target of a relentless madman with a deadly agenda.

Trevor’s Song by Susan Helene Gottfried 1 (4 e-book copies) – Fame and fortune have destroyed many a rock star, but not Trevor Wolff.

Miami Snow by Darcia Helle (1 e-book) Nick Donovan’s ex-wife and best friend have turned his world upside down. Broke and emotionally shattered, he moves hundreds of miles away in an attempt to start over. But his ex-wife has a hold on him that he can never escape.

Hit List by Darcia Helle (1 e-book) Sanity is not something you lose, like your car keys or that elusive sock in the dryer. That’s what Ian believed before his mother stepped over the edge from sane to crazy. Ian hires private investigator Lucianna Martel to retrace the events of his mother’s last sane day. Eventually they discover that Corinne may not be so crazy after all.

No Justice by Darcia Helle (1 e-book) How far would you go to right a wrong? Michael Sykora is a software designer and part-time hit man.
