The SECOND deliciously sneaky mystery in Anthony- and Edgar-nominated Tony Dunbar’s Tubby Dubonnet series.

Tony Dunbar is the rare author able to make you laugh and shake in your shoes at the same time.

New Orleans lawyer Tubby Dubonnet is bored. He wants to bill enough hours to pay his alimony and keep his daughter in college, with enough left over for an occasional drink and a good meal, but he longs for something different and exciting.

Sure, researching licensing law for the new casino will keep trout meunière on the table, but what could be more tedious? (Unless, of course, the client turns out to be connected.) Meanwhile, there’s the estate of an old friend who controls some dock leases on the wharf. And he agrees to help his daughter’s environmental group stop illegal dumping in the river.

Ho-hum, thinks our hero. But suddenly all three cases begin to converge in an entirely ominous way–the toxic dumping, the dock leases, and the too-good-to-be-true casino job. How is that possible? Could it be Tubby’s been set up as the fall guy in a Mob effort to expand its gambling empire?

Suddenly Tubby IS doing something different and exciting — he’s running for his life!

Not so much, thinks Starlite, the talented young vet he has hired over the objection of others. He is prickly, remote, critical, and Starlite, anxious to please and accustomed to success, is unable to win his approval.

When Renny and Starlite must work together to save a cruelly orphaned and badly wounded baby rhino, they must face the secrets they both hide–and the attraction they can no longer deny.

A KISS AT KIHALI is a story of healing and second chances filled with drama and danger that lead to a happy ending. A KISS AT KIHALI contains no sex or cursing and will appeal to readers who love women’s fiction and sensitive romance and who care about the environment and the future of endangered species.

The number of authors, self-published and otherwise, is exploding. But what everybody seems to be talking about is marketing. They’re overlooking the actual writing.

This book says hold on a minute! It’s not just marketing; it has to be a great book. You have to know how to write. Funny and fast, as a book must be in the digital age, DIGITAL INK takes you through all the basics: dialogue, plot, character development, POV, and more. DIGITAL INK will transform your writing.

Be Right Back (BRB), by Bob Kat, is free today in the Amazon Kindle store, and this book has received an average user rating of 4.9 out of 5 stars based on 15 customer reviews.

Category: Young Adult Romance

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Change the past, Save the future.

Be Right Back (BRB) won the Young Adult genre in the Readers’ Favorite book competition for 2013.

Four high school friends are able to do two things no one else on the planet can do . . . talk with dead people and time travel to the past. It’s early summer and boredom is setting in. They have just returned from an adventure where they travelled through time back to 1966 to solve a mystery and save a popular high school girl’s life.

Kelly, Scott, Austin and Zoey gather in Scott’s lab, listening to the old radio that Thomas Edison had invented and called “The Telephone to the Dead”. As they slowly turn the dial they hear hundreds of sad, lonely voices of souls that have passed but apparently never moved on, pleading for help. When they first discovered the radio in Kelly’s aunt’s garage, they had been touched by the cries and pleas coming from its speakers, but they had no way to go back in time to help them. That is, until Scott reveals an invention of his own . . . a time travel app. They’ve tested it only once, but that first trip had been successful . . . if you ignore the fact that Zoey and Kelly had almost gotten killed by a serial killer. Even though they returned with a few scrapes and bruises, they are eager to go on a new adventure and help solve another mystery.

A very young girl’s voice comes through, saying that her whole family has been murdered on an island just off the east coast of Florida.

The teens look the island up on Google Maps and see that it is completely deserted which contradicts the story they’re getting from the Spirit Radio. But it’s a beautiful island called Crystal Key with a stretch of beach that, unlike Ft. Myers Beach, is not crowded with tourists and kids. The teens decide to pop in, spend a nice day on the beach, check out the island to see if there is any truth to the girl’s story, then pop right back. It sounds like a great plan.

From the very beginning, things go wrong when Scott miscalculates their landing and they end up splashing into the Atlantic Ocean. After swimming for their lives, they collapse on the beach that is, indeed, beautiful. But it isn’t deserted. They find the little girl, her family and a half dozen more people living in a sprawling Florida-style home owned by a menacing man named Manuel. He gives them no opportunity to escape and insists that they stay in the house. As they try to find a way out, Kelly tries to ignore her attraction to Austin, who clearly isn’t interested in a romance. Besides, just days before she went on her very first date . . . with Scott. How could she have such strong feelings for two boys? And then there is Zoey who is hot for Austin, but flirting shamelessly with Scott. Then people start dying and all they can think about is saving the families and themselves. Are they destined to be a madman’s latest victims? Their time travel adventure to a tropical paradise may turn out to be their last.

The Boy who Lit up the Sky, by J. Naomi Ay, is free today in the Amazon Kindle store, and this book has received an average user rating of 4.2 out of 5 stars based on 46 customer reviews.

Category: Science Fiction / Fantasy

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Lydia Kalila, the Princess Royal of Mishnah, is forced into marriage with the son of her country’s mortal enemy for the sole purpose of producing an heir. Duty comes before personal choice for a princess, especially when her country has been at war for more than a thousand years. Lydia’s pregnancy removes her brother and new husband from their respective lines of succession, placing her yet unborn infant at the head of both queues. No one is happy about this, especially Lydia who dies during childbirth from wounds caused by the talon-like toenails of her very strange newborn son.

Grief stricken at the loss of his daughter, the Mishnese King hastily sends Senya, his infant grandson off to a decrepit inner city orphanage with the intent to retrieve him much later when things got sorted out. At the orphanage, Senya is protected by the invalid Sister Meri who instantly falls in love with the little fellow. She’s not bothered at all by his strange telekinetic and telepathic powers, flickering pupil-less silver eyes, or wicked clawed toenails. The House Father takes a shine to the lad too, and when Senya is six years old, he is summoned to the Father’s chamber. The Father ends up in flames, forcing Meri and Senya out into a snow storm running for their lives.

Thus begins the tale of Senya, a prince created to be king of a planet but tossed aside until his twelfth birthday when Lt. Taner, a Royal Guard detective is sent to retrieve him. It is unclear to all whether Senya is the product of something good or something evil, but in either case, it is very apparent that he is something more than just Lydia Kalila’s son.

*** Note to readers- This title contains graphic language, sexual situations and some violence. It is not intended for children or young teens.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Louisiana Lament is the THIRD book in the Talba Wallis mystery series by Edgar-winning author Julie Smith.

Nobody knew who she really was … but her parties were to die for!

They’d be Queen Latifah and Danny DeVito if this were a movie. In Louisiana Lament, they’re P.I.s Talba Wallis and Eddie Valentino—Talba’s young, African-American, computer-brilliant, bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, and a noted poet by night; Eddie’s pushing seventy, white, hopelessly tech-challenged, and pretty much burned out. Somehow, they make it work—with Talba’s tech-and-street smarts, and Eddie’s old-school hard-earned savvy, they even complement each other.

One stormy day Talba gets an emergency call from Janessa, the sister she barely knows, and arrives to find a body floating in a swimming pool—the mortal husk of Allyson Brown, known in New Orleans literary circles as the Girl Gatsby. Like Gatsby, Allyson was one of those mysterious rich people who move to town, give amazing parties, and seem made of moonbeams.

Investigating, Talba finds the reality behind the Gatsby glamour. Allyson was a con artist who neglected her children, ignored her bills, and lied like a rug. But she wasn’t the only bad actor on the local literary scene. Fellow poet Rashad leads Talba a merry chase, leaving a trail of clues in the form of poetry, while novelists engage in fisticuffs, unseemly preening, and unforgivable arrogance.

Before it’s all over, Talba finds out just how seamy, petty, and downright murderous her fellow literati can be.

Category: Young Adult / Supernatural

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Part X-Files, part Freaks and Geeks, and totally ’80s!

In the fall of 1984, Cold War tensions between Washington and Moscow are close to breaking.

But in sleepy Gainesville, Florida, fourteen-year-old Janis Graystone is mainly worried about starting high school, earning a spot on the varsity soccer team, and keeping her older sister from running her life. And then there are her nighttime experiences. Experiences where she awakens in her backyard — out of her body — with the disturbing sense that someone is watching her.

For Scott Spruel, the start of high school means the chance to start over. And he’s willing to ditch everything — computer hacking, Dungeons & Dragons marathons, even his comic book collection (well, except for his X-Men) — if it means getting closer to Janis, the secret love of his life. But what about the eerie delay on his telephone, a delay he senses through powers he is only beginning to understand?

As clocks tick down, Janis and Scott will need the other’s help. But first they’ll have to find one another and that means traversing Thirteenth Street High’s caste system, which can be as brutal as it is unforgiving…

Rated 16+ for language and some violence

On this island, there are no survivors.

Lost meets Treasure Island in this riveting account of castaways on a desert island hunted on all sides. A rare blend of breathtaking action, deep character development, corporeal horror, and a believable story line brings this modern adventure to life.

When the cruise ship Princess Anne sinks at night in the middle of the Atlantic, strange, white-haired natives pluck seven survivors from the water. Delivered to a barren volcanic island and forced to work, the survivors disappear one by one as the natives, and the island itself, turn hostile. An old betrayal tears apart the native political structure as a hurricane threatens to bring to life the deadly secret of the island. With time running out, the natives and survivors alike form and break alliances to escape by any means possible.

Fear the natives. Fear the Island. Fear each other. Fear yourself.
If you miss Lost, don’t miss Red Sand. All the action, suspense, betrayal, and mystery you could ask for with scenes so swiftly terrifying you’ll gasp for air. Deeply human characters draw you in until horribly detailed descriptions end them. You’ll shut your eyes when it happens, but you’ll tell everyone about it the next day.

Secrets. Lies. Betrayal.

How much heartbreak can one heart take?

Melisa Dane has made it through the worst. Her heart was broken, but Florian Dane, better known as “Heat”—and the man of her dreams—returned to mend it. Now, with her family almost complete, Melisa is ready to sit back and enjoy life.

But fate isn’t done with her yet. The perpetual smile on her face freezes when the second man to steal her heart shows up in her life once again. Scott Bergfeld, the husband she buried and grieved for years ago, is not dead, and he comes back bearing secrets.

Heartbroken and confused, Melisa tries to find answers to questions she never thought she’d ask, but what she learns throws her life into turmoil. Soon, cracks start to form in her marriage with Heat. As her heart is torn into two halves—between the man she loved first and the man she married first—she comes dangerously close to having her whole life destroyed again. How many people will end up getting hurt? This time, does she have the strength to make it through?

The couple do their best to conform, but their rebellious streak leads them beyond the colony’s boundaries where their attempt to rescue the crew of a crashed spacecraft unwittingly sets in motion a chain of events that threatens to expose not only Nivia’s dark secret, but that of a powerful criminal organization as well.

At that exact moment, in the heart of Brussels, a young girl is kidnapped. What is the connection between those two incidents? Who is behind them?

Accused of betrayal, Ido is forced into a fast-paced dizzying chase in order to clear his name.

Isaac toils by day in the sweltering tobacco fields of South Boston, Virginia. At night, he steals away to shepherd runaways on their journey north along the Underground Railroad. All the while, he yearns for the freedom that Henry, his boyhood friend and owner’s son, takes for granted.

When war sweeps the nation, Henry enlists to fight for the Confederacy. In his absence, Patrick, his older brother, capitalizes on their father’s illness to seize control of the family farm. Suddenly, slaves feel the sting of the whip, families are torn apart, and Isaac’s own father is sold south. Fear grips the slave quarters as Isaac’s mother struggles to protect her children and her invalid master from Patrick’s cruelty.

Following false promises and failed escapes, Isaac’s only hope of reuniting with the woman he loves lies in joining Henry and the Rebels on their march northward. When Henry is wounded and taken prisoner, Isaac finds himself behind Union lines—free, but facing a hard choice: should he follow his dreams or return to slavery to save his childhood friend?

When Claudia reluctantly agrees to become the first human time traveler, she knows she’s making a big gamble. If she succeeds, she could have the happy ending with commitment-phobic Adam that she’s always dreamed of. But if she fails, it could mean the end of the universe as she knows it.

Six Months in Montana, by Pamela M. Kelley, is free today in the Amazon Kindle store, and this book has received an average user rating of 4 out of 5 stars based on 556 customer reviews.

Category: Contemporary Romance

 

 

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Molly Bishop loves living in Manhattan and managing a boutique luxury hotel. She’s about to be promoted to her dream job of General Manager, the role she’s been striving for her entire career.

There’s only one thing standing in her way.

The will of her childhood friend, Christian Ford’s grandfather. She hasn’t even seen Christian in over ten years, but a recent run-in with his grandfather during a rare visit home, resulted in a new condition to the will. Christian will only inherit the ranch he’s been running and the real estate development business that he has expanded, if he marries Molly and stays married for at least six months.

This is what I would call a cozy romance, it’s romantic and sweet and is set in a small fictional town about 30 miles from Bozeman, MT. Warning, if you prefer your stories with the bedroom doors wide open and the windows steamed up, you may be disappointed. :)

I love to cook and try new recipes and if you do too, you may want to check out the recipe I included at the end of the book, for Lazy Lobster Casserole, the dish that Molly serves her guests at the Rose Cottage Inn’s first wine dinner. It’s a recipe I know by heart and have made a million times and is great for special occasions. It’s a holiday tradition in our family to have it every Christmas Eve. :)

A young adult novel collection

Boxed Set includes “Alliance”, “Rival”, “Allegiance” and “Enemy”.

Alliance
How do you choose between destiny and love?
Forever seventeen, vampire Maggie Wells has spent her life in the shadows. A master at blending in, she lives among the troubled teens she’s made it her mission to protect, along with her best friend and witch, Hannah Morgan.
Eighteen-year-old Shane Campton knows his destiny: he was born to kill vampires. When he crosses paths with Maggie, the only thing that keeps her alive are the witnesses present.
When Shane’s younger sister, a mysterious supernatural, needs Maggie help, Shane is torn between his duty to kill and his sister’s safety. He starts to get to know Maggie, and finds there is much more to her than he thought. But Maggie has a secret past that could destroy them all.

Rival
Her destiny. His determination.
Born a fifth generation vampire Chaser, seventeen-year-old Emily Santos wants nothing more than to join the family business. But Emily’s mother refuses, so Emily must channel her aggression into her martial arts training.
Black belt senior Brett Carson has decided it’s time to rid himself of his unrequited feelings for Emily. But when he finds himself in the middle of an altercation with Emily and a gang of vampires, he is drawn into a world he never expected. And Brett is hiding a secret of his own…

Allegiance
They were her enemies. Until she became one of them.
A Chaser born to kill vampires, sixteen-year-old Rachel Campton has grown up in her older brother’s shadow. Until she wakes up a vampire, her own mortal foe. She’s stronger, faster than her human self, but haunted by bloodlust and the loss of her beloved younger sister. Friendless and lost in enemy territory, Rachel must rely on Alex Wellington, a former nemesis and centuries old vampire who looks like a college football player.
As Rachel goes deep into vamp territory, she learns there is more to the vampire life than killing humans. She also discovers another side to Alex. He is more than a murderer, he is someone that she starts to fall for. Rachel faces the ultimate choice–her new life and unexpected love or the family she left behind, the family that may now want her dead.

Enemy
She’s the unlikeliest vampire hunter ever. A scientist.
Seventeen-year-old science prodigy Genevieve Quinn never thought she would be kidnapped from her college campus by a vampire. Or that said vampire would want her help on a science project. Genevieve has no intention of complying, but when an escape attempt turns deadly, it is a vampire that comes to her rescue.
Vampire Chad Matthews is an atypical specimen. He’s good-looking, in a dangerous kind of way. But that’s not what attracts Genevieve… it’s the shadows behind his eyes. As Genevieve and Chad team up to find a way to defeat a monster even worse than killer vampires, she discovers that not everything can be explained by science—like falling in love.

New Orleans’ most dynamic detective duo, poet/computer genius Talba and street-savvy Luddite Eddie Valentino, have a personal interest in this one—Eddie’s lawyer daughter Angie’s been set up for a drug bust.

Prominent Judge Buddy Champagne’s the obvious perp and Talba’s so mad she embeds herself in his house as a spy—but she doesn’t count on ending up with a family straight out of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof; nor did she realize how involved she was going to get—especially with Buddy’s 14-year-old daughter Lucy.

It works, though, She uncovers plenty of evidence the judge is dirty. And then things get ugly: Somebody kills Buddy and Talba’s true identity comes to light. The Champagnes hate her at this point, but guess what? They hire her to solve the case.

There are plenty of mysterious twists and turns on the way to an ending guaranteed to surprise—but the real joy here is in the relationships, especially Talba’s with Lucy, who, it turns out, is a budding poet. And with another little girl, her boy friend’s bratty daughter Raisa. She’s SO not prepared for quasi-motherhood!

Psychic flashes, haunting visions, missing persons and visits from ghosts. That’s just their first date.

Jack has been getting on his parents’ nerves for some time. Bad enough he’s a rock musician, has crappy grades and hangs out with his “loser” friends. But Jack’s ability to predict the future–well, that just annoys the hell out of them.

Jack’s classmate, Lauren, is said to have unique abilities too. The town still talks about when she kept badgering her mother about the money in their wall. For the longest time, Lauren’s mother didn’t listen. Finally, she did and Lauren’s mother hasn’t had to work since.

Jack would really like to connect with Lauren but can’t figure out how. She’s never looked at him twice. But when he experiences a mystifying event involving visions, voices and spectral visits, Jack figures there’s only one person to help him understand who’s calling out to him and why. Before long, Jack and Lauren are off on a road trip of discovery that could provide answers to a mystery left unsolved for twenty years. More importantly, they might even unravel the greatest mystery of all–how every so often someone will accept you for who you are.

Puppy love and so much more…
Rand Fielding, moody, dynamic and aloof, preys on billion dollar companies, making himself millions in the process. He buys what he wants, when he wants it, people included. In Rand’s world everything has a price and a best-before date, especially women.

Rand’s never had a dog and doesn’t have time for one. But a surprise gift of what his business partner calls “man’s best friend”–a goofy, disruptive, stubborn pup who quickly develops a taste for Rand’s Italian shoes–puts him in the market for a professional dog trainer.

Upbeat, open and uncomplicated, Tessa Darwin supports her mom and dotes on her practical younger sister, Annie. Tessa’s goal is to become a vet, but until she can pull that off financially, she does what she loves, works for Dawg’s Inn Kennels and trains dogs.

Rand hires Tessa and tells her to get his newly acquired, leather-eating, carpet-destroying fur ball under control.

Tessa instantly falls in love with the willful pup and works her training magic to bring him to heel. All good–until she also falls in love with the pup’s handsome, arrogant–totally unattainable–owner. This is not good. Not good at all.

Tessa’s pretty sure bringing Rand Fielding to heel is way beyond her skill set. But no way can you blame a girl for trying…
