Over the Yahoola, by Johnee Cherry
Lilly Corn can't be fooled by that old penny-behind-your-ear trick. She's been bamboozled by a man too many times. Voodoo, shaman tricks, and omens are make-believe as far as Lilly is concerned and the mention of folklore can strike a flame in her eyes. When sexy, sweet Hudson McGee shows up on Lilly's doorstep looking for a place to camp for a few days, she's
not too pleased with the idea. She's not about to let this year's shyster fool her with his crazy schemes.

Madly, Deeply, by Erica Crouch
It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea...

Annaleigh Wells and William Calloway had a love even the angels envied. It was as if the universe spun them toward one another, like the stars crafted their souls to fit perfectly together.

With a wedding on the horizon, fate had a change of heart. Whispered warnings from phantoms and morbid nightmares darkened every night—but even visions of the future couldn’t save Annaleigh.

Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s poem Annabel Lee, Crouch’s period romance Madly, Deeply tells the tale of love so great, it cannot be contained in just one life....

AMERICA'S GREATEST BLUNDER: The Fateful Decision to Enter World War One, by Burton Yale Pines
Entering World War One against Germany was America’s greatest blunder of the 20th century. America had no reason to join the devastating and stalemated three-year-old European struggle. The two million doughboys, as they affectionately were called, whom America sent to the Western Front shattered the battlefield stalemate and won the war. This allowed Britain and France to impose a devastating peace on Germany, thus igniting toxic German cries for revenge.

Absent America’s entry into the war, the exhausted belligerents almost certainly would have been forced—by the mounting food and other shortages on their home fronts, by their looming economic bankruptcies, by the plunging morale and rising restlessness of their populat...

Blank, by Lippe Simone

A hard-boiled narrative rapidly unfolds the overlapping stories of survivors in a race against the sun to discover the mystery of their shared immunity while it lasts, hampered at every turn by a civilization that’s been reset to its most primitive state....

Coming To Jesus: One Man's Search for Truth and Life Purpose, by Britt Gillette
At age 14, Britt Gillette found himself alone in a hospital late at night struggling with the universal questions of life. Who am I? Why do I exist? What’s the purpose of life? What happens when I die? Is there a God? If there’s a God, who is He? Does He care about me?

You’ve probably asked yourself these same questions, and maybe you’ve found the answers. But for Britt, these were new questions, and he didn’t like it at all that he didn’t have the answers. So he set out on a personal quest to find the truth. Along the way, he examined the claims of every religion, philosopher, political leader, psychic, and mystic he could find, and what he discovered was nothing short of astounding. What he found changed his life...
