Category: Paranormal Romance

 

 

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

CAN THIS MARRIAGE SURVIVE TWO HUSBANDS, ONE ALIVE, ONE NOT?

Award-winning chef Phil Randazzo, and his anthropologist wife, Michelle, are as happy as any newlyweds with five kids and a ton of history. But something’s eerily amiss.

They’ve been married less than a year and already there’s someone else–at least it’s starting to seem that way.

First Hendrix the cat’s developed a new trick, but how does a flesh-and-blood feline walk through walls? Maybe with help from his best friend on The Other Side? Then there was that dude Phil saw upstairs Thanksgiving Day. Only nobody was there. But the odd thing was that “nobody” looked exactly like Michelle’s dead husband, Cajun musician A.P. Savoie. Her really really handsome and much-missed dead husband. Who died all too suddenly.

Can it be he wants her back?

Harper creates a unique and spooky triangle in Ghost In The Bedroom, yet many of its most rewarding thrills (chills too, if truth be told) come from the savvy story of newlyweds and stepfamilies feeling their way with the greatest good humor, yet seemingly thwarted despite all efforts. That could be any family, right? And that’s half the fun. Except that Michelle’s kids not only want their dad back…he’s there! And their psychic’s so creeped out he’s told Michelle not to call back.

Definitely not your average paranormal romance. This is a funny, warm, feel-good tale with enough literary heft and humor to stick to the ribs. It seems to have an almost…uncanny…way of keeping its loveable characters on your mind for weeks.

Fans of Alice Hoffman and good-humored, romantic ghost movies will love this one! Think THE GHOST AND MRS. MUIR, JUST LIKE HEAVEN, and of course that classic heart-tugger, GHOST itself.

To be extraordinary was a fate Arie Belle had never imagined. She was comfortable living the simple life on a meadow protected by towering trees just outside of town.

Her only saving grace was her lifetime friendship with the boy next door, River, who was relentless in picking up the pieces of her broken future.

Years of numbness were lifted when a beautiful stranger, Ashe, entered her world and took her soul to places it had never been, across realities trapped in the worlds of fairytales. Would he be her savior, or would she find the strength within to be her own?

Her journey begins on her eighteenth birthday and quickly unravels what she is and who killed her mother. Her uncanny connection with nature and heightened sensations are just one of many secrets that unfold along the way. Will she find answers before the next full moon where her death is painted in the fate of the stars? Will she accept a scripted destiny or let the dark side of life suck her in?

This short novel is the FOURTH in the Bruce Kohler mystery series by AGATHA and DERRINGER AWARD nominee Elizabeth Zelvin. (But it’s a great introduction to this witty series. They can be read out of order, and this is a short, funny one—try it, you’ll like it!) About 100 pages.

A NEW AGE RETREAT IS SERENE AS A LOTUS POND … UNTIL THE KILLING STARTS

Recovering alcoholic Bruce Kohler and his good friends Jimmy and Barbara decide to escape the big city for a wellness and couples workshop outside of Sedona. The joint is called The Aquarius, a New Age community the locals have taken to calling The Woo-Woo Farm. But the serene retreat has much more in store than yoga mats, didgeridoos, ecstatic dancing and aboriginal tracking.

During an early morning hike, the trio encounters America’s bestselling relationship guru, Melvin Markowitz, posed for meditation and strangled to death with a luggage strap. The race is on for the three friends to find the murderer. Bruce falls for the victim’s widow, Jimmy longs for the city, and Barbara minds everybody’s business as usual.

But when Melvin’s baby sister’s volatile husband “Madhouse” is also found dead, it seems everyone at the Woo-Woo Farm is suddenly in danger from more than just a handful of holistic loonies…

Readers will fall in love with Bruce’s smart mouth and heart of gold, Barbara’s comical efforts to fight her addiction to helping (she knows she’s co-dependent), and Jimmy’s solid sweetness and cyberspace wizardry.

Books 1 – 4 in the wildly successful (and swoon-inducing) Academy Ghost Bird Series, together for the first time at a low price. This bundle includes an exclusive that fans have been begging for: Meeting Sang, an alternate POV story of how it all began.

Introductions–Book 1
With an agoraphobic mother and a barely-there father, Sang Sorenson abhors the isolation keeping her in the shadows. What she craves is a fresh start and to be accepted as ordinary, because for her, being different meant being cast out alone.
When her family moves to a new school district, Sang infiltrates a group of boys, each nearly perfect in every way. Grateful for an influence outside of her parents’ negativity, she quickly bonds with the boys, hoping to blend in and learn from them what it means to have friends.
Only the boys have secrets of their own and they’ll do anything to keep her safe from the knowledge of the mysterious Academy they’ve sworn allegiance to. Bit by bit, Sang discovers her friends are far from what she’d expected. Will her loyalty change when she’s forced to remain in the dark, or will she accept that she’s traded one house of secrets for another?
Meet Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North in a story about differences and loyalty, truth and mystery, friendships and heart-throbbing intimacy.
The Academy, ever vigilant.

First Days–Book 2
As a new student to Ashley Waters High School, Sang Sorenson hopes her new friends will be the change she’s been craving and will make fitting in a breeze.
But Academy students aren’t there to take it easy at the overcrowded school rife with violence. When fights begin, Sang will uncover the true reason the boys traded in their private school lives for public ones. This year, Sang will no longer be invisible. This year, Sang is a target.
The principal and vice principal are hot to take Sang down, and her own mother is determined to entrap Sang forever in her belief that the safest place to be is in the shadows. Despite this, Nathan, Luke, Kota, North, Silas, Victor, and Gabriel will discover Sang’s unyielding loyalty. And they will sorely need it.
The Academy, supremely influential.

Friends vs. Family–Book 3
Sang Sorenson is forced to suffer through another of her mother’s extreme punishments that almost kills her. The Academy boys vow it will be the last. They’re determined to keep Sang safe, especially from her own family. Their solution: complete infiltration into her life.
Kota, Luke, Silas, Nathan, Victor, Gabriel and North do everything within their power to show Sang what true loyalty means. It takes more than blood to make a family and they want Sang in theirs. Sang experiences a taste of freedom and what it’s like to truly be cared for, wanted. Sang learns a bit more about the boys’ broken families and they discover more than they ever imagined about Sang’s. The Academy was the answer to their problems. Could it be hers?
Sang’s actions force her mother to reveal a startling truth that will change Sang’s and the boys’ lives in unpredictable ways. Forever.
The Academy, Allegiance

Forgiveness and Permission–Book 4
Sang Sorenson’s abusive mother is secure in a hospital and her father has vanished to a new family of his own, leaving Sang and her sister to fend for themselves.
But Sang is never really alone. The Academy team has stepped in, promising to protect and care for her. Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North take over, showing Sang they can be depended on for anything. But just because her parents are away, doesn’t mean Sang’s life has become any easier.
The newfound freedom will have a higher price than any of them could have imagined.
Principal Hendricks now wants to use Sang to exploit Academy secrets. Mr. McCoy has his own dark plans for her. Enemies are closing in. Sang will need to believe in the boys, and the boys will need to trust her if they want to survive their rivals. And each other.
The Academy, Relentless Trust

Natural Therapies are not only about herbs; there is also focus on body work and massage. Throughout my book, you will get enough motivation and encouragement to also try:

Vintage bridal shop owner Amy Trewist thinks she’ll never recover her quiet life at her restored farmhouse on an old country road. Not after her young daughter Grace is kidnapped. On one clear morning, in mere minutes, Grace is gone and Amy’s world spins into a heartbreaking new place.

So does George Carbone’s world. Drawn into his brother’s crime solely to protect a child, his fate is sealed. But in a summer that simmers with the unsolved crime, George’s conscience is tested. Can he change his fate? Can he right a wrong in a stricken mother’s life? Can he love Amy freely?

What begins as a haunting encounter in a bank parking lot evolves into a psychological drama as these two lives converge in a small New England town. Because in postcard-pretty Addison, Connecticut, all is not what it seems. Pitting truth against secrets, brother against brother, and ultimately love against fate, True Blend is a riveting page-turner. Like the intricate lace of Amy’s beautiful gowns, romance and suspense twist and weave together in this mesmerizing novel.

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

Simple educational principles written in everyday language
Suitable for parents, teachers and educators

The aim of the book is to provide parents and educators with simple educational principles written in everyday language. Some theories have been included for better understanding, and examples given from real life. Simple ideas and exercises are given to shape parenting skills.

This book is definitely suitable for young parents who are just starting their family but also for more seasoned parents who are facing the challenges of parenting today. The educational principals presented are also suitable for teachers and educators and can greatly contribute to improving the classroom environment, helping them succeed in the tremendous job that they have taken on themselves.

It’s worth keeping this book handy, to look through from time to time in order to refresh your memory. From my experience I have seen that reviewing the material before giving a lecture or lesson gives me an advantage when teaching or parenting.

˃˃˃ The three pillars

The three pillars of education are the foundation for developing all interpersonal relationships, starting from infancy through adult relationships with spouses, friends, colleagues and employer ”” employee relations. In all cases the principles remain the same. Efficient meaningful communication requires good listening skills and the ability to provide emotional acceptance. There is a need for limits and boundaries and appropriate displays of authority. On the one hand the authoritativeness cannot be too soft or feeble but on the other, shouldn’t be too stringent or lacking in sensitivity. To complete the picture we need the pillar of significance and meaning. This pillar helps us become significant figures in the eyes of others and challenges us to live fulfilling meaningful lives.
Remember, using good listening skills, presenting clear stable boundaries and being in the eyes of our children, significant figures who educate towards meaning in life, will certainly lead us to a better quality of family life, improve our interpersonal relationships and allow our children to be nurtured in a better healthier way.

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!

Category: Historical Fiction

It was a beautiful dream; as compelling and just as any in history – yet unattainable. Realizing it meant overcoming entrenched ideological and political divisions that had split a city and the world for half a century. Then it happened; overnight and without warning. And nothing would ever be as it was before.

Set in the divided city of Berlin just before the revolutions of 1989, continuing through the unexpected fall of the Wall and German reunification, No Man’s Land chronicles events as experienced by Richard, an expatriate American working an unsatisfying yet profitable job selling software for a small US firm. As the story unfolds, he meets an array of people on both sides of the Berlin Wall; among them are Katerina Weber, the only child of a funeral director hell-bent on living every moment to the fullest; Knut Heino, a theology student working toward priesthood in an effort to avoid a real job, (according to Knut, work is the consequence of original sin, therefore, he wanted nothing to do with it); and Klaus, a former East German boarder guard who went over the Wall and could never adjust to life in the West. Stranded in West Berlin without the means to leave, Klaus asks Richard for a favor that requires an excursion to the eastern city. There he meets Traudi Franzke, an idealistic young nurse. The relationship that ensues, separated from reality by the notorious concrete border, exposes hopes long since betrayed but clung to nevertheless. It is a relationship that outlasts the Wall and the tumult of German reunification until Traudi’s life is destroyed by a secret past, completing a journey from an age of ideology to The End of History.

Category: Thriller

 

 

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

The second book in the Kamas Trilogy, STAR CHAMBER BROTHERHOOD begins five years after the Kamas revolt. A Kamas survivor who returns illegally to Boston to find his missing daughter is ordered by the prisoners’ covert Star Committee to kill the commandant who crushed the revolt.

Boston. 2029. Five years after the Kamas revolt.

Frank Werner, a Boston businessman arrested for dissident political activity, has survived a brutal government assault on a mutinous corrective labor camp in Kamas, Utah, and a year at hard labor in a remote Yukon tungsten mine. He gains amnesty during a brief political thaw and returns to Boston illegally in search of his only surviving daughter, Marie.

No sooner does Werner gain a foothold in Boston as a bootlegger-bartender and move in with a lovely widowed pediatrician than his new life begins to unravel. A former Kamas rebel leader who twice saved his life assigns him a mission by authority of the prisoners’ covert Star Committee. The objective: to execute the warden who quelled the Kamas revolt five years before.

Werner, now nearly sixty, accepts the assignment reluctantly and recruits four trusted friends for his team. Each has a dark past and a different reason for joining the conspiracy. But the mission goes awry twice. After the second failed attempt on the former warden, who has been reassigned to Boston, each of the other team members is killed or leaves the field. Left alone, Werner resolves to complete the operation on his own. Before he can follow through, however, his missing daughter suddenly reappears. Now, by attacking, he risks any chance he might have of rejoining her.

STAR CHAMBER BROTHERHOOD offers unforgettable characters, rapidly mounting suspense and a richly imagined vision of an America gone terribly wrong. With his distinctive understated prose, Preston Fleming manages to evoke strong emotions and force wrenching choices in a new book that more than fulfills the promise of his debut novel, FORTY DAYS AT KAMAS.
