Dying
on Edisto
The
Edisto Island Mysteries Book 5
by
C. Hope Clark
Genre:
Cozy Mystery
 
One
death. Two detectives. And unexpected backup.
 

 

A
Callie Morgan and Carolina Slade crossover! (A standalone mystery)

 

When a renowned—and
now dead—travel blogger washes ashore on the banks of Indigo
Plantation, Police Chief Callie Morgan of Edisto Beach agrees to head
the investigation as a favor to the county sheriff, whose reasons are
as questionable as the death itself.
When death turns to
murder and a watchdog from the county makes her investigation
difficult, Callie reluctantly turns to Carolina Slade and Wayne
Largo, vacationing agents with the Department of Agriculture. Because
poison is growing on this plantation, and someone knows how to use it
well.

edge-of-your-seat action…crisp writing and compelling storytelling.

Today bestselling author
“Her beloved
protagonist, Callie, continues to delight readers as a strong, savvy,
and a wee-bit-snarky police chief.”—Julie Cantrell, NY
Times and USA Today bestselling author

A
Chateau Jolie Romance #1
by
Heather McGovern

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

Pub
Date: 10/30/2018
 

 

In
the quaint mountain town of Windamere, North Carolina, the three
Sargent sisters are determined to make their hotel and winery,
Chateau Jolie, a success. And one by one, they’re finding that
nothing pairs better with new beginnings than unexpected love…
The downside of living
in a charming small town is that it’s impossible for Brooke Sargent
to avoid anyone. Especially someone as big, handsome, and friendly as
Trevor Bradley. At his brother’s wedding, they flirted and
danced…before Brooke recalled that she’s not ready to trust any
man after her divorce, let alone one who’s the competition. Her
family’s struggling chateau is planning to host the local senior
prom—without the Bradley family’s renowned Honeywilde Inn
muscling in and stealing the glory.
Trevor has thought of
no one else since the night he and Brooke connected. Even though she
shot him down—hard—he’s seen the warmth beneath her guarded
facade. Working together, they could give the high school students a
spectacular prom. Navigating the rough terrain of Brooke’s
business, while proving himself to his own siblings, won’t be easy.
But Trevor loves a challenge—especially one that could win him the
woman he can’t stop wanting . . .

With a second chance at life…and love, turning 50 never felt better

Live,
Love, Repeat
Milestones
Book 1
by
JD Corbett
Genre:
Contemporary Romance
 
Over
the last 25 years, Liz Banner’s life has grown stagnant. Not that
she hasn’t loved being a stay-at-home wife and mother, but she
didn’t mean to lose herself in the process. And after surviving the
most challenging time in her life, Liz realizes that life is too
short, and second chances don’t come around very often.

 

 

With
a milestone birthday approaching, Liz is determined to live a little.
And when her best friend, Anne, gifts her a ticket for a 10-day
luxury cruise, Liz decides it’s the perfect excuse to experience
new things, and just take some time to relax with some of her
favorite women. But her idea of a relaxing vacation gets thrown
overboard when a few surprise guests make an appearance and attempt
to win their way back into Liz’s heart.

 

 

With
a second chance at life…and love, turning 50 never felt better.
Here is the excerpt 

Liz was still gaping at the man standing in front of her, frozen with shock. She was at a loss for words, though, after so many years, there was so much to say. James didn’t give her much time to process things and pulled her into a brief hug. Her body stiffened in his embrace and he pulled away to lean on the railing once more.

“Wow. I can’t believe you’re here. I thought I saw you earlier when the ship was leaving the port, but I just assumed my mind was playing tricks on me again.” James ran a hand through his hair and a wide smile played on his lips.

Again? Liz shook her head, trying to formulate a sentence. Finally, she was able to slow the swirling thoughts in her head long enough to state the obvious.

“It’s been so long,” she almost whispered, then found her fingers inching closer to his arm. Maybe he wasn’t really there. Maybe she had too much to drink, and with the stress…and her medications…

James looked down at her hand as it made contact with his forearm. His brow furrowed slightly, but he continued to smile. He met her eye. “Is everything alright?” He let a chuckle escape and Liz swiftly withdrew her hand.

She pinned both of her arms across her chest, hoping to keep them from randomly touching people. “I’m sorry. I guess, I’m a little surprised to see you.”
