Seared, by Sandra Gustafsson. (Still Click to view?)

"Seared is a psychological thriller in the style of Gone Girl, the main conflict unfolding delicately and masterfully over the course of the novel/.../Both brisk and brutally raw, Seared is highly recommended for fans of thrillers and family dramas." -- Red City Review

Helena is incarcerated. She has crossed the lines, but what has she done?
Once a week, Helena see a psychologist and talks with him, and the truth is presented piece by piece. For several years she had a relationship with a man who gave her the courage to live, despite her dark secrets, but she was always "the other woman" and finally Helena's fragile world crashes.

We meet Helena in shards: talks with the psychologist interspersed with flashbacks to her childhood and Helena's inner conversation with the love of her life.

The story is full of nerves and tension rises with the realization of who Helena really is.

Seared is a psychological thriller that insightfull depicts a broken womans desperate attempts to create a life worth living.

310 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 3 reviews.

Carnies and Wildcats: Ulciscor, by Robert Spearman. (Still Click to view?)

"I started reading and couldn't stop until it was finally time to sleep. The following morning, I ambitiously finished reading. Great character development and a story that will keep you speculating on the end results, which will come as a surprise. I hope that Robert continues to share his fiction in additional stories." -- Amazon reviewer

Murder and revenge in the Deep South.

In November 1980, one week after the Wildcats and Vikings squared off for their last football game of the season, someone raised the stakes beyond the realm of petty vandalism and theft and committed a cruel, monstrous act. The carnival was in town with its rides, games, and sideshows and was finishing its last night in Valdosta before returning to Florida for the winter.

After the carnival closed for the night, people leaving the back gate discovered twelve-year-old Allison Pritchard's bloody, lifeless body in front of the back gate's ticket booth. Her throat was cut from ear to ear. Hanging around her neck was a sign, painted in her own blood: "We Hate Carnies and Wildcats"

Thirty-five years later a mysterious stranger buys the old Daniel Ashley Hotel and for some folks in Valdosta, a city called "Winnersville", things will never be the same.

228 pages, with a 4.9-star rating from 30 reviews.

A Ghost for Christmas (Destiny Bay Cozy Mysteries Book 1), by J. D. Winters. (Still free?)

"While sometimes the author seemed like she was trying a little too hard for the humor, overall, I enjoyed this book. It was short, but fairly well plotted and had enough red herrings to keep you wondering whodunit, yet it didn't have so many characters that it became confusing." -- Amazon reviewer

Be careful what you wish for

Mele Keahi wasn't looking for excitement when she came to Destiny Bay. She'd just lost her man, her job and her self esteem, and she needed comfort. Instead, she found herself involved in a murder, sparring with a suspicious detective and coming face to face with a ghost from her Hawaiian childhood. Not what she'd bargained for--but then--sometimes you just have to deal with what the cat dragged in.

At 31,500 words, 178 paperback pages, A Ghost for Christmas is the first book of the series.

188 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 74 reviews.
