Widow of Larkspur Inn, (The Gresham Chronicles), by Lawana Blackwell.

Let's start with a solid novel from Lawana Blackwell, a full-time writer with six published books. The Widow of Larkspur Inn is the first story in the three-book Gresham Chronicles series.

"This book was really wonderful. The main character, Julia Hollis had so much strength, faith, hope and love. Julia was married to Phillip, who had hidden his love of gambling. She was forced out of her home when Phillip died because of his gambling debts.

"She moves her family (3 children and her maid/friend) to Gresham to the Larkspur Inn. The Larkspur Inn was the only property of her husbands that the Bank didn't want. She returns the Larkspur Inn back into the beautiful Inn it was in its glory days.

"Lawanna Blackwell makes you feel as if you are there in Gresham - and that all of the tenants, and the owner and her family, are your friends! She meets the vicar, Andrew Phelps, whom she forms a friendship with.

"Do yourself a favor and pick up this book and enjoy! I loved this book so much, I just ordered the other two in this series!! " -- Cheryl McDermitt, Amazon reviewer

Julia Hollis' opulent life in Victorian London crashes to pieces when her husband passes away. Worse, she is told by his bankers that he gambled away their fortune. 

Now, the family's hope rests on The Larkspur, an old abandoned coaching inn in the quaint village of Gresham. Driven by dread and her desire to provide for her children, Julia decides to turn the dilapidated inn into a lodging house. 

But can she--who was accustomed to servants attending to every need--do what needs to be done and cope when boarders begin arriving? And then an eligible new vicar moves into town....

Hal Spacejock, by Simon Haynes.

This is the first book in the acclaimed Spacejock series. Hal Spacejock, the hapless pilot of cargo ship Black Gull, lands a job transporting robot parts. Along with him is the old robot Clunk; against him is, well, pretty much everyone else - from warships to desperate thieves to debt collectors to dockmasters - who object to Hal's habit of accidentally setting their planets on fire.

"'Fast, funny, quirky, enthralling comedy adventure; not just a genre parody but a well-made story in its own right, told with a light, deft touch." -- Tom Holt 

"Things start to go wrong and just keep going that way in this clever novel. A very funny science fiction read." -- Fiction Focus 

"The quirkiest genre satire to hit bookshelves since Terry Pratchett's Discworld." -- The West Australian

"Riddled with slapstick humour and glib one-liners." -- Courier Mail, Brisbane 

"An underground cult hit . . . just the thing to read when all you want is to forget your troubles for a while and enjoy someone else's engaging and well-crafted world." January Magazine 

An incompetent space pilot, a massive debt and a twenty-four hour deadline...

Freighter pilot Hal Spacejock has a life to die for: His very own cargo ship, a witty and intelligent flight computer ... and a debt so big it makes the GFC look like a rounding error.

Hal's an upright sort of guy, and he won't take jobs from gun runners, drug smugglers or politicians. On the other hand, the finance company's brutal enforcer is on his doorstep, and Hal has barely twenty-four hours to pay him off. Miss the deadline and he - and his ship - will go under. Way, way, under.

Faced with an impossible choice, Hal chooses an impossible job ... and gains an impossible new co-pilot into the bargain.
