City
of Gold
Matthew
Connor Adventure Series, Book 1
by
Carolyn Arnold
Genre:
Action, Adventure 
 
Finding
the Incas’ lost City of Gold would be the discovery of a lifetime.
But failing could mean her death…
Archaeologist
Matthew Connor and his friends Cal and Robyn are finally home after a
dangerous retrieval expedition in India. While they succeeded in
obtaining the priceless Pandu artifact they sought, it almost cost
them their lives. Still, Matthew is ready for the next adventure. Yet
when new intel surfaces indicating the possible location of the
legendary City of Gold, Matthew is hesitant to embark on the quest.
Not
only is the evidence questionable but it means looking for the lost
city of Paititi far away from where other explorers have concentrated
their efforts. As appealing as making the discovery would be, it’s
just too risky. But when Cal’s girlfriend, Sophie, is abducted by
Matthew’s old nemesis who is dead-set on acquiring the Pandu
statue, Matthew may be forced into action. Saving Sophie’s life
means either breaking into the Royal Ontario Museum to steal the
relic or offering up something no one in his or her right mind would
refuse—the City of Gold.
Now
Matthew and his two closest friends have to find a city and a
treasure that have been lost for centuries. And they only have seven
days to do it. As they race against the clock, they quickly discover
that the streets they seek aren’t actually paved with gold, but
with blood.

books for the mystery lover.

hides a secret so powerful, it could destroy the world as we know
it.
Archaeologist and adventurer
Matthew Connor has made a career of finding legends the world has all

ahead isn’t going to be an easy one, and their shared dream of
recovering the Emerald Tablets is being crushed at every turn. And
just when they think it’s all over, they learn there are a few
clues they have overlooked. But they’re no longer the only ones
searching for the Tablets. Now, the fate of the world hangs in the
balance, and soon they’ll find out that when it comes to hunting
legends, they can’t trust anyone.

The Rising Tide series is one of the best modern vampire stories I have ever read

Rising
Tide: Dark Innocence
The
Maura DeLuca Trilogy Book 1
by
Claudette Melanson
Genre:
YA Paranormal
 
Rising
Tide will sink its fangs into you, keeping you awake into the wee
hours of the night

 

 

Could
Maura’s life get any worse? …turns out it most certainly can.
Isolated
and sheltered by her lonely mother, Maura’s never been able to make
friends. She seems to drive her classmates away—except for the odd
times they pay enough attention to torture her—but she doesn’t
understand why. Maura considers herself to be a freak of nature, with
her unusually pale skin and an aversion to the sun that renders her
violently nauseous. Her belief is only worsened by the fact that
almost everyone around her keeps their distance.
Even
her own father deserted her before she was born, leaving Maura alone
with her emotionally distant mother, Caelyn. Even though Maura is
desperate for answers about her unknown parent, Caelyn remains
heartbroken and her daughter can’t bring herself to reopen her
mother’s wounds. Or is there a more sinister reason Caelyn refuses
to utter a word about her long-lost love?
When
a cruel prank nearly claims Maura’s life, one of her classmates,
Ron, rushes to her rescue. Darkly handsome & mysteriously
accepting, Ron doesn’t seem to want to stay away, but Maura is
reluctant to get too close, since her mother has announced she’s
moving the two of them to Vancouver…nearly 3,000 miles away from
their hometown of Indiana, Pennsylvania.
If
life wasn’t already challenging enough, Maura begins to experience
bizarre, physical changes her mother seems hell bent on ignoring,
compelling Maura to fear for her own life. Vicious nightmares, blood
cravings, failing health and the heart-shattering loss of Ron—as
well as the discovery of a tangled web of her own mother’s
lies—become obstacles in Maura’s desperate quest for the
unfathomable truth she was never prepared to uncover.

Undertow:
Death’s Twilight
The
Maura DeLuca Trilogy Book 2
 
Maura
finally found the truth she was always seeking…or has she?

 

After
being left in the dark for all of her life, Maura’s father,
Maxwell, has finally returned to reveal sinister family secrets Maura
could never have dreamed possible—including his revelation that she
is one of The Born. But his daughter soon discovers both he and her
mother are keeping pieces of her reality hidden, still. As Maura
struggles to unravel the mysteries surrounding her new existence and
discover every piece of the cryptic puzzle, life appears intent on
casting stumbling blocks across her path with every step forward.

 

Tragedy
seems to stalk Maura, and those around her, as she stumbles along,
altering the young changeling’s family, just when they have all
come back together. The changes left in its wake could be for the
better, or may threaten their existence, entirely.

 

 

With
the arrival of Christmas comes the opportunity for Maura to draw
close to everyone she loves—and finally reunite with Ron, the man
she loves. But permanence has always eluded her, and in her current
state of flux this pattern endures, as fate seems intent on snapping
the threads that bind her to those she holds most dear. Maxwell’s
good intentions pave a road for Maura, littered with misery, while
her mother, Caelyn’s, desire to shield her family from pain may
tear her away from them, altogether. The perfect happiness in the
young vampire’s grasp is so easily swept away and dragged under,
out of reach. Can Maura erupt from the darkness and confusion to
break the surface and find the life she’s always dreamed of?

 

In
the midst of chaos, assistance materializes in the form of another of
her kind—ephemerally beautiful, yet explosively volatile, this new
vampire may prove capable of unlocking the puzzle-box Maxwell seems
intent on securing from her sight. Maura will discover the darkest
parts of herself in her quest to understand the being she is destined
to become. Her newfound friend has some shady intentions of his
own—such as thwarting the love that has grown between Maura and
Ron. Following in the wake of the impulsive vampire’s misguided
instruction may further pull a naive Maura down into the depths of
ultimate despair, heartbreak…and even destruction.

Riptide:
Betrayal of Blood
The
Maura DeLuca Trilogy Book 3
 
Maura
has never felt so alone in her life…nor has her existence ever been
so overshadowed by peril…

 

 

 

Not
only do both her parents—her distant but loving mother and
recently- returned father—remain absent from her life, but due to
the hideous error in judgement executed in collusion with her best
friend, Valdamir, and adoptive sister, Susie, Maura has been cut off
from the pair’s friendship and support, forbidden by both her
father and the fallout from the dire outcome to see either of them.
The heartbreak she suffers, brought on by the weight of these
estrangements, is only intensified by the continued mysterious
absence of her supernaturally-destined mate, Ron…whose
disappearance delivers grave consequences Maura would have never
dreamed possible…

 

 
Despised
by her vampire cousin, Aldiva, for reasons Maura cannot yet
comprehend, the young changeling will be forced to guard her back
with every step, as she comes to realize this member of her vampire
family would love nothing more than to bring about her demise.
Aldiva’s wrath calls forth other members from both Vancouver
covens, forcing them to rush to Maura’s aid—even though her
father, their king, has expressly forbidden the other vampires to
initiate contact with his daughter. Will her extended family on
Vancouver Island obey, abandoning Maura to her doom, or will they
instead rebel against Maxwell’s wishes in order to save her
life?
 
In
addition to the menace personified in her unsolicited enemy, the
unlikely vampire princess will find herself drowning as she is pulled
down into the depths of a far more devastating crisis…one which may
condemn her to a fate she considers much more undesirable than death.
But in order to tear herself free from the deadly pull which is
drawing her under, Maura must enlist the help of her preternatural
family, exposing her newfound friends to a danger none of them have
ever had the misfortune to face before. Can she be saved or will the
riptide drag Maura under…along with those she loves the most…

Praise
for Riptide:

 

“I will
scream it from the rooftops how much I love this series.”

 

“I
can only say that Riptide is one of the best modern vampire stories I
have ever read, and I read them all from Stephen King to Ann Rice to
Stephenie Meyer.”

 

“Riptide
was action packed and the fight scenes were well written but more
than that it was the story of family and love, of taking
responsibility, and dealing with hate when all sane avenues
fail.”
“The
lore is superb, as is the writing. I can’t wait to catch up with
Maura again!”

SHROUDED
IN DARKNESS…

 

 

If
it hadn’t been for King Leonidas, white witch Ceva would have roamed
the earth alone and ostracized. She was a biological accident, and
her heritage was a curse she’d carry around for all her days. Now she
fights for her king and kingdom, a fierce warrior on a mission to
prove she is worthy of the trust and friendship the king has
afforded. When she meets Lothar, captain of the Black Ridge Wolf Pack
guard, she glimpses a future she never thought possible. But once he

dance around each other, but Lothar wants more. When his team joins
hers on a dangerous mission, he learns her secrets, which makes her
more extraordinary, not the pariah she believes she is. But her past
is about to catch up with her, and only his love can save them from

Does a pattern of five knife wounds provide a clue?

Five
Knives
A
Will Finch Mystery Thriller Prequel
by
D.F. Bailey
Genre:
Crime Thriller
 
One
Reporter.

 

Three Dead.

 

Five Knives.

 

 

FIVE
KNIVES welds the intensity of Jack Bauer’s “24” to the
scorching heat of THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNET’S NEST.

 

 

“The
author is a great talent.” — Aaron C. Brown, Amazon Top 1000
Reviewer

 

 

When
a man plummets to his death from an apartment tower, Will Finch’s
shock soon becomes a nightmare. As he studies the open windows above
the corpse, Finch notices a lamp blinking erratically behind a drawn
curtain on the eleventh floor.

 

 

When
he investigates the distress signal, Finch discovers a woman
handcuffed to a bedpost. Over the following week, he uncovers a
conspiracy that ties the murder to a series of bombshells. The
victim’s bankruptcy. A global stock fraud. A murder spree that
began in Baghdad and is now haunting the citizens of San Francisco.
Is this the work of a serial killer, a copycat — or both?

 

 

But
before he can file his report for The San Francisco Post, Finch’s
leads evaporate. Within days, three victims are dead. Does a pattern
of five knife wounds provide a clue? Can he unravel the mystery
before he — and his fiancée — are caught up in the web of
murder?

 

 

Five
Knives is the prequel thriller in the Will Finch crime series — a
novel that opens on the first day of Will Finch’s journalism
career. Everything that Finch learns about crime reporting begins
with Five Knives.

among her fans and her staff wants to kill her, and her
career.

Cali
May attends an Artists’ Retreat at Tawnee Mountain Ski and Golf
Resort in North Jersey. She’s appalled to see a figure fall from the

top of the mountain with several creative souls both dead and alive,
and must uncover a murderer before she too becomes a target.
 
 
The
Quinnipiac Disappearance
Tawnee
Mountain Mysteries Book 7
by
Lee Tidball
 
“Down
in South Jersey, you got your Jersey Devil and the Pine Barrens.
Up here, we got E.T.s and Quinnipiac.”

So
says Alan Riddiak, NSA field agent Jake Farrister’s friend, as they
rent kayaks at Quinnipiac Reservoir, site of what locals say was the
most credible mass sighting of a UFO in human history, and just miles
from the swanky Tawnee Mountain Resort, where Alan’s boss, revered
Senator Grant Bilson of New Jersey, is on an August recess
retreat.
“

Ok…”
smirks Jake.

But
smirks turn to shock when two bizarre disappearances and an attempted
murder suck the rest out of the retreat, and Senator Bilson
commissions Jake to solve the mysteries.

Jake
finds nothing but frustration, though, until he finally concedes what
quirky new friend Nikki Hayes has told him all along; when it comes
to Quinnipiac, the only explanations are inexplicable, the only
believable witnesses are unbelievable, and in order to stop the
world-shattering plot at the heart of the mysteries, Jake must do
what he thought was unthinkable—and hope he’s not too late.

By
day I am a technical writer, and by night and on weekends I am
an artist and creative writer.  Having lived  in
Phoenix, AZ for 20+ years with my husband Tim, I found the urban
wilderness to be endlessly fascinating. Our home was tucked up
against South Mountain, the largest city park in the U.S. The canal
that ran across the base of the mountain provided inspiration
for painting, drawing, and writing with sitings of wild
coyotes, skittering fluffs of newborn quail, lizards, constant
change…and stories of life and death. In December 2017, we moved to
a beach in Florida, which is whole ‘nother story!

To
the outside world she is just Leena Duncan. A gentle woman with a
troubled past, yet none know her full story. Her ability to control
the elements and her knowledge of plants make her magic strong and
unbreakable. It’s just too bad that she’s closed off her heart to
not risk it again, having learned that horrors are possible, even
with those who claim to love you. It only takes one man at the rainy
Beltane celebration to change her outlook, and one killer to endanger
her world.

 

Owen
Grey, a well-known fantasy author, has returned to his childhood home

While he may write about happily ever after, he knows it only as
fiction. Until her.

often wishes she could rewrite her own story to become charming and
sophisticated enough to be with a certain wealthy male lawyer she
wants more than anything else.

 

 

Chris
is a force of strength and experience carefully hidden behind the
easy mannerisms he has adopted. There is nothing he cannot do with
his magic and he has tried all of it, whether right or wrong. His
fortune has left him wanting for nothing in life except the one thing
money can’t buy, the woman he feels too unclean to approach.

Rachel is a woman that lives carefree with a

others; her character is to protect all those that cannot protect
themselves. When she’s not riding on life, she is helping children
less fortunate then herself.
Steven is man that gives
more than his energy usually allows. He is a highly-respected
pediatrician that always goes that extra step to ensure all in his
care are receiving his utmost attention. He often sacrifices sleep to
spend time with his friends, and he can’t seem to help affably
chasing the skirt of the one woman that breaks his easy-going charm
and makes him forget he’s supposed to be the jovial. He hides his
strength in body and magic, never letting others know that he is more
than the carefree man with everything he needs.

determined to stop the killer from harming anyone again. With a plan
of his own, Steven decides he’s done waiting for Rachel to see that
they’re meant to be together and takes things into his own hands.

The Mabon gathering brings this

guarded and alone. After reeling from the killer’s emotional
tumult, her friends are concerned and looking to protect – none
more than Dade.
His ability to call emotions and
reactions with his drums leaves Dade singularly placed to draw the

her, his past history with women leave him wondering if she ever
could take a chance on him. A gathering that could change everything
by catching the killer just may bring a new love to light.

Jacqueline
Paige lives in Ontario in a small town that’s part of the popular
Georgian Triangle area. 

 

 

 

She
began her writing career in 2006 and since her first published works
in 2009 she hasn’t stopped. Jacqueline describes her writing as “all
things paranormal”, which she has proven is her niche with
stories of witches, ghosts, physics and shifters now on the
shelves. 

 

 

When
Jacqueline isn’t lost in her writing she spends time with her five
children, most of whom are finally able to look after her instead of
the other way around. Together they do random road trips, that
usually end up with them lost, shopping trips where they push every
button in the toy aisle, hiking when there’s enough time to escape
and bizarre things like creating new daring recipes in the kitchen.
She’s a grandmother to four (so far) and looks forward to corrupting
many more in the years to come.

The 3rd book in the 1st of several
trilogies featuring Maura & her family! 
 
Maura has never felt so alone in her life…nor has her existence ever been so overshadowed by peril… 
 
Not only do both her parents—her distant but loving mother and recently- returned father—remain absent from her life, but due to
the hideous error in judgement executed in collusion with her best friend, Valdamir, and adoptive sister, Susie, Maura has been cut off from the pair’s friendship and support, forbidden by both her father and the fallout from the dire outcome to see either of them. The heartbreak she suffers, brought on by the weight of these estrangements, is only intensified by the continued mysterious absence of her supernaturally-destined mate, Ron…whose disappearance delivers
grave consequences Maura would have never dreamed possible…
 
Despised by her vampire cousin, Aldiva, for reasons
Maura cannot yet comprehend, the young changeling will be forced to guard her back with every step, as she comes to realize this member of her vampire family would love nothing more than to bring about her demise. Aldiva’s wrath calls forth other members from both Vancouver covens, forcing them to rush to Maura’s aid—even though her father, their king, has expressly forbidden the other vampires to initiate contact with his daughter. Will her extended family on
Vancouver Island obey, abandoning Maura to her doom, or will they instead rebel against Maxwell’s wishes in order to save her life? 
 
In addition to the menace personified in her
unsolicited enemy, the unlikely vampire princess will find herself drowning as she is pulled down into the depths of a far more devastating crisis…one which may condemn her to a fate she considers much more undesirable than death. But in order to tear herself free from the deadly pull which is drawing her under,
Maura must enlist the help of her preternatural family, exposing her newfound friends to a danger none of them have ever had the misfortune to face before. Can she be saved or will the riptide drag Maura under…along with those she loves the most… 
 
In this third and final book of The Maura DeLuca
Trilogy, the first of several trilogies to come, the reader will delve even deeper into the secrets guarded by Maura’s father, the mystery of Ron’s role in her life and the identities of the mysterious Vancouver Island Coven members who have, up until now, remained hidden in the shadows. This trilogy rounds out
the segment of Maura’s life during which she discovers she is a member of The Born—a human destined to complete her transformation into a vampire! This series of young adult fantasy novels has been enjoyed by readers of nearly
every age and are found by them to be dramatically different from any other vampire books they have read in the past. Discover a magical world filled with fae, angels, elves, pixies and other enchanting creatures in addition to two families made up of some of the most likeable vampires—for the most part—to ever
exist.

Snippet:
Millicent rested an elbow on the kitchen counter and watched me pour water and sprinkle grounds with an intense concentration she found comical. “Are you going to have some?” I asked, peering out of the corner of my eye at her as I pushed the brew button.


“Unlike your father, I am not in the habit of sipping at long-lost beverages. If I took anything to drink while visiting, My Dear, it would be you.”


I gasped before I could squash my alarm. She loved to come out with statements rife with shock-value just so she could laugh at my reactions. Although she did this often, I still hadn’t learned to quell my startled expressions, placing myself again and again at the mercy of her dark humor—a fitting element of her unique personality.


I tried to beat her at her own game. “Absolutely.” I affixed a warm smile in place and lifted my wrist to her. “Just a sip, okay?”


She called my bluff. “Oh! I was hoping you would grant me permission someday! You do smell delightful.” Millicent did take a sip of me, albeit a tiny one, but it earned her another deer-in-headlights-of-a-very-large-truck expression from me.


“Mmmmmm…” She licked her lips before throwing back her head and filling the kitchen with her dusky laughter. “Seriously, though, you taste very nearly like him.”


I took that as a compliment.

Snippet:
The bus
ride was the longest leg of my trip, almost forty-five minutes in length, so I
arrived at my stop even more exhausted—and hungry—than I’d already been. I was
still worrying over showing up late to lab, adding further to the list of my
crimes, so I was completely caught off guard when the too-pale, too-cold hand
shot out to claim my wrist as I hurried past the giant pine after crossing the
street.
*Aldiva!*
I thought. She’d caught me alone, just as she’d threatened she would. Winter
clamped down over my mouth before I could alert the smattering of students,
rushing off to their own classes in a panic, to my perilous situation. I
struggled against the frozen, vice-like grips which held me, though I knew
there was no point in doing so.
