"Curse of the Fairfield Witch" by Paul FerranteCurse of the Fairfield Witch

A T.J. Jackson Mystery #4

by Paul Ferrante

T.J. Jackson just wants to be a normal high school kid. Unfortunately, his paranormal ability — and the responsibility that goes with it — won’t let him. He and fellow ghost hunters Bortnicker and LouAnne have made a name for themselves as reality TV stars, but now the stakes are higher. A witch from the 1600s has returned to avenge her death, and the Junior Gonzo Ghost Chasers must stop her. It sounds like great TV, but this time adventure and fame aren’t what’s important. This time, the fate of T.J.’s home town hangs in the balance…and the clock is ticking.

Unhinged"

by Shelley R. Pickens

Being normal isn’t always a good thing, especially if it ends up killing you.

Aimee, the sixteen year old girl who can see your every memory with just one touch, is fresh out of the torture room after risking everything to capture a killer. Despite her instinct to avoid contact with others, she tries her best to find a new normal at school—perhaps even a boyfriend. But for those who are cursed, happiness and normality aren’t easy to obtain. A bizarre illness spreads like wildfire through the school and causes those around Aimee to lose their sanity before falling into a coma. Slowly, all the people she loves succumb to this strange disease.

Alone and terrified, she must use her curse to find a way to save her family and friends. As she delves deeper and deeper into their memories, she realizes David, a delusional person from her childhood, is the bigger threat that could destroy her. Despite the danger that surrounds her, she struggles to solve the puzzle before it’s too late to help those she cares for the most. But as David moves closer to eliminating her, one puzzle still remains. Will she be able to save herself?

New Books || July 24, 2014

We’ve only got one release today and it’s one that I’m very excited about.

When I first read this book, when the author submitted it for consideration to be published, I thought to myself, “Wow! This is different. I have not read a book like this. What a refreshing change of pace.”

The Haunting of Secrets

by Shelley R. Pickens

Are some secrets worth dying for?

Sixteen-year-old Aimee doesn’t like to touch people. One touch and she sees their past. One graze over her skin and she can see all the good and bad deeds a person has ever done. It isn’t until a bomb explodes during lunch that she realizes exactly how many dirty secrets the students in her school harbor-or exactly how far one of them would go to keep his secrets safe.

In the aftermath of that fateful day of the bombing Aimee is brushed by a fellow student as they are caught in the mob running for their lives. Images of tortured and murdered young girls rise up to choke her. The problem is, Aimee doesn’t know who touched her. Somewhere in this school a fellow student is a killer, and Aimee is the only one that can find him before he murders again.

 With the help of her friends Aimee must sift through her stolen memories to determine clues. The quest to find a killer unravels the very fabric of her carefully woven life. He won’t stop until he silences her- for only she knows all his secrets. She will have to summon all of her inner strength to decide what she must do: hunt or be hunted. Are some secrets worth dying for?

So many great new books for you today! (AND the chance to win a $10 Amazon Gift Card!)

I’m personally excited for all of them, but especially “A Strange There After,” which is the sequel to “Happily Never After” and the second book in Missy Fleming’s Savannah Shadows series. It’s a modern day Cinderella…. with ghosts!

Fans of contemporary fiction will be interested in “Love You to Death” by Melissa March about a young woman running from her stalker – just reading the prologue has me excited to start reading this one.

For the contemporary romance fans, check out “Finding Hope in Texas” by Ryan T. Petty. Can Hope find love and acceptance after the loss of her entire family? I know I’m dying to find out.

Another contemporary fiction release is “Double Take” by Laura Kennedy. When Brooke’s car breaks down and she seeks refuge from the rain, she meets a reclusive woman who believes she’s a movie star from the 1950’s.

Finally, for the historical fans, we have “White Pine: My Year as a Lumberjack and River Rat” by Caroline Akervik. When his father is injured it’s up to Sevy to take his place with the Lumberjacks in the white pine forests of Wisconsin. Will he have what it takes?

Keep reading for more info on each book.

Ghosts exist. Quinn Roberts knows this because she is one – kind of. The spirit of a dysfunctional ancestor, Catherine, has evicted Quinn from her own body, forcing her to live in a world with the paranormal.

Forced to watch the growing bond between her boyfriend, Jason, and the body snatcher, Catherine, Quinn delves deeper into the history of her family in search of a way to reverse what’s been done. What she finds is a dangerous entity more terrifying than anything she’s encountered before. He’s willing to grant all her desires…for a price.

As Quinn faces painful decisions and makes unlikely alliances, she learns how far she will go to get her life back. Desperation is a wicked thing and she soon realizes that recovering her body may only be the beginning of her end.

Still reeling from her loss and the culture shock of her new home, she must also deal with a school bully that has set her sights upon her.

Double Take

by Laura Kennedy

When sixteen-year-old Brooke Bentley’s green convertible and cell phone conk out during a tropical rainstorm, she believes it’s just bad luck. But when she darts through the dark to a dilapidated Victorian she thinks is the home of a friend and is invited in by a butler in a faded black tux, Brooke knows it must be karma. Because how often do you meet a reclusive 1950’s movie star who thinks she’s actress Terry Moore? And how often does someone as charming as eighty-year-old Laura de France insist on transforming you into a movie star, too? How can something as simple as a dress control your life? It can if it’s the famous green toga worn by actress Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra and you’ll do anything to wear it.

“Reading ‘Double Take’ reminded me of my teen years at MGM studios where I had the good fortune to go to the Little Red School House with such young talent as Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney.”

– Sharon Randall, formerly Janice Chambers, ninety-year-old singer/actress.
