Daphne Coleman’s life is not going at all as planned, and it just got worse. Here she is, back after college, working full-time now at her old summer job as kennel manager at Riverside Lodge and Kennel. So much for her hard-earned degree in Greek and Roman mythology!

To make matters worse, the Lodge is now owned by a former classmate and the homecoming queen, Cassandra Weatherstone, who’s dating the love of Daphne’s life while running the place into the ground with her outlandish ideas.

A Paw-sible Theory: A Murfy the Cat Mystery, by Anna Kern
When Ethan Hille discovers his mother Alyx slumped over her kitchen table bleeding from a gash in her head, he suspects foul play. Who would want to hurt Alyx? Surely, her three cats – two small females, Misty and Pooky, and the old master, Murfy – couldn’t know, although, they do seem very distressed over their mistresses’ condition. The police investigator, Detective Smarts, is immediately suspicious of Ethan, wondering if the young man bashed his mom in the head earlier and then left only to return a short time later with Maggie to “discover” the injured woman. Neighbors had heard mother and son arguing – ostensibly about Ethan’s spending habits.
The evidence quickly mounts and, before Alyx recovers and is released ...
                     
Alessandra, by Ann M Pratley
After receiving news from her parents of a possible betrothal, Alessandra, an 18 year old with an ingrained belief that no-one would ever wish to marry her, finds herself in a love so great that at times she cannot breathe. To marry someone like herself - someone she can go on a sexual journey of learning and exploration with, who also has no previous experience in such pleasures - contributes to her finding a degree of emotional and physical love that she has never before realised could exist. But that love will be tested by someone from her past with sinister intentions, jealous of the physical love she shares with her husband. Someone set on doing whatever he can do - whatever he must do - to have the woman he desires, no matter the cost...
                     
Stories Gathered at the Kitchen Table: A Collection of Women's Memoirs, by Anne Randolph
"Raw and unfiltered, meaningful writing from the heart." Bold women share the stories that bolstered their confidence to become business women, leaders, mothers, healers, politicians, artists, pilots and trendsetters. In the safe haven of Kitchen Table Writing, creators from the 1950s to Columbine write life stories that resonate with women across generations. Everyone has a story to tell, and the courageous women featured in this collection have done just that. Once a week for a year (some for more than four years!) these women wrote, shared, laughed, cried, and created a community of respect, appreciation, and support. They gathered at Kitchen Table Writing to "Write Your Life Story" and in the process changed their worlds and themselves....
