Tags: Slapstick/British Satire/Comedy of Errors/Farce

Corpses, cats, and chemical catastrophes... it's all just another day in the lab! 

All that lab technician Daniel Dreghorn wants is a better job, more money, a new flat – oh, and perhaps to meet a few more girls. It’s not much to ask of life, is it? All his dreams are answered with one visit to a faulty cash machine, but is it too good to be true? Yes, Daniel, it is… 
Daniel’s life goes from bad to mad as a series of deaths are attributed to him and some very shady characters start to believe he is more than he seems. As Daniel’s colleagues at the university become suspicious of his actions, madcap Professor Farquharson sees him as a way of achieving a long-held desire… Can Daniel avoid being drawn into his boss’s crazy schemes? Can he avoid the attentions of a bent copper? Are Dr Bernini’s doughnuts all they seem to be? 
A Clear Solution is a hilarious look at what happens when you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time – complete with homicidal bank managers.

Genre: Literary Fiction/Mystery/Crime/Thriller/Cozy
Tags: Theatre/Amateur Dramatics/Shakespeare/Theatrical

Beware the Ides of March... 

Brian Wilmer is God’s gift to amateur dramatics – and he knows it. So when the Castlemarsh Players take the ambitious decision to stage Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, there is only one man who can play the title role – even though Brian’s posturing ‘prima donna’ attitude has, over the years, won him few friends and many foes. 
Rehearsals progress apace, and the production draws ever closer. But when another member of the cast has to drop out due to illness, local journalist Sarah Carmichael (a stalwart of the Players’ backstage crew) suddenly finds herself called upon to step into the breach at the eleventh hour. 
Not surprisingly, Sarah finds that Brian is in his egotistical element playing the mighty Caesar. The fact that the final performance of the play takes place on the infamous Ides of March – the day when, according to tradition, Caesar was fatally stabbed – only adds to the excitement. 
But tragedy is waiting in the wings. And when it strikes, it falls to Sarah – with the help of Brian’s personable, and fascinating, nephew Martin Burns – to uncover the incredible truth about what really happened…

"Twists abound as love blossoms amongst the dead bodies in a genre-crossing novel with a dark undertow all its own." Marika Cobbold, best-selling author

Emily Kelly cannot believe her luck when she is employed as companion to wealthy old Sir Gerald Ffinche. (OK, luck had nothing to do with it – but all’s fair in love and job-seeking, right?)
She soon settles in chez Ffinche and builds an excellent rapport with Sir Gerald – but it’s his son Richard who really interests her, and they quickly become inseparable. 
However, it seems their happiness has enraged someone closely associated with the family, and a series of tragic events is set in motion. Subtle clues are left to incriminate Emily and when she determines to expose the real culprit, she is spoiled for choice. As the body count mounts, Emily and Richard – and the police – are perplexed. They’re clearly looking for someone who projects a mask of sanity to the world whilst being dangerously disturbed: but who? 
With a whole shoal of red herrings and a plot that veers from the almost cosy to a taut psychological thriller, By Any Other Name is an enthralling, chilling whodunit.

When Blood enters Simon’s speakeasy, and Susie dances with him, she discovers there’s a completely new world beyond the things she owns and the things she’s allowed to do.

But she’s still Simon’s woman, and he won’t allow her to forget it.

Soon Susie will discover there’s more than two men fighting over her in the confrontation between Blood and Simon. There’s a fight breaking through the wall of the real world, into the spirit world where Susie’s freedom may mean life or death for one of them.

    For centuries, a tiny band of men (and they are all men) have held the monsters and forces of nature at bay. Without them, hungry elementals would swarm over Britain, consuming life for their fuel and demanding sacrifices to restore their powers. Operating out of a secret arm of the Church of England, these witch-finders protect ordinary people, allowing them to live their lives. And their center, the College of St. Van Helsing, attempts to bring new generations of witch-finders to the noble cause. Burnout and the toll of the job doesn’t make it easy and the College’s insistence that only men are qualified drives many who would best serve to become witches instead.
    A witch-finder considering abandoning the church and using magic to expand his family estate confronts an elemental who promises him sex and power. A drunk student finds his own power being used to bring forth a legendary ghost dog. An angry storm disguises the yearning of a mother for her child—and her willingness to destroy a city if witch-finder magic kills that child. A Neolithic dog seeks to protect its family, still confused about why it was abandoned. An angry elemental has found a loophole in the wards that bind it to the earth and plans its escape on the day that doesn’t exist.

Shani Struthers
Genre: Horror/Psychological/Paranormal/Crime/Mystery/Fiction

What do you do when a whole town is haunted? 

In 1899, in the North Yorkshire market town of Thorpe Morton, a tragedy occurred; 59 people died at the market hall whilst celebrating Christmas Eve, many of them children. One hundred years on and the spirits of the deceased are restless still, ‘haunting’ the community, refusing to let them forget. 

In 1999, psychic investigators Theo Lawson and Ness Patterson are called in to help, sensing immediately on arrival how weighed down the town is. Quickly they discover there’s no safe haven. The past taints everything. 

Hurtling towards the anniversary as well as a new millennium, their aim is to move the spirits on, to cleanse the atmosphere so everyone – the living and the dead – can start again. But the spirits prove resistant and soon Theo and Ness are caught up in battle, fighting against something that knows their deepest fears and can twist them in the most dangerous of ways. 

They’ll need all their courage to succeed and the help of a little girl too – a spirit who didn’t die at the hall, who shouldn’t even be there…

“The dead of night, Jess, I wish they’d leave me alone.” 

Jessamin Wade’s husband is dead – a death she feels wholly responsible for. As a way of coping with her grief, she keeps him ‘alive’ in her imagination – talking to him everyday, laughing with him, remembering the good times they had together. She thinks she will ‘hear’ him better if she goes somewhere quieter, away from the hustle and bustle of her hometown, Brighton. Her destination is Glenelk in the Highlands of Scotland, a region her grandfather hailed from and the subject of a much-loved painting from her childhood. 

Arriving in the village late at night, it is a bleak and forbidding place. However, the house she is renting – Skye Croft – is warm and welcoming. Quickly she meets the locals. Her landlord, Fionnlagh Maccaillin, is an ex-army man with obvious and not so obvious injuries. Maggie, who runs the village shop, is also an enigma, startling her with her strange ‘insights’. But it is Stan she instantly connects with. Maccaillin’s grandfather and a frail, old man, he is grief-stricken from the recent loss of his beloved Beth. 

All four are caught in the past. All four are unable to let go. Their lives entwining in mysterious ways, can they help each other to move on or will they always belong to the ghosts that haunt them?

Jake Westaway comes into her life when he brings Abbey a message. He has no intention of sticking around, since she’s definitely not his type, but somehow, he has difficulty leaving…
Jake could see the photographer making his way towwards them, so he dropped his hand on her thigh, fingers spreading beneath the hem of her short dress. `Oh, what the hell!' His fingers moved higher on her thigh - and he knew how Abbey's eyes would ignite. The provocative glow in them was exactly what he wanted Miles to see...to see that he had lost Abbey! and to his best friend.

She blew on his exposed neck, taking Jake by surprise; as surprising as the erotic tingling racing over his skin. Just as that all-woman, sensual lop-sided smile of hers curved her lips, the photographer's flash caught the erotic pose...

Back Seat To Justice (A Steve Salem Novel) by Tim Baker

Tags: Florida/Private Detective/Investigator/Murder

Florida P.I. Steve Salem is hired to tail an unfaithful husband.
Things go from boring to bizarre when his mark is executed right in front of him.
Finding the killer is only the beginning of the adventure.

Review: "Back Seat to Justice" is excellent. I'm a big fan of the Robert B. Parker "Spenser" novels and this reminded me of those but with plenty of differences to keep the story fresh. There were plenty of twists and turns. A couple of times I was sure I had things all figured out and the action veered in a completely unexpected (but plausible!) direction.

Unconditional Forbidden Love by Vicki Case

Genre: Poetry/Poetry & Drama/Relationships
Tags: Marriage/Love/Divorce/Heartbreak/Cheating

"I won’t be the last woman who found true love and her soul mate in the arms of a ‘Forbidden Fruit’ that belonged to another. I won’t be the last woman to endure the heart and head struggle with right and wrong, for love and desire. I won’t be the last woman to surrender her heart, her soul and her body to a man, only to have it taken by him and then discarded. Nor will I be the last woman who endures the hurt, the pain and the loss at losing the love of her life and her soul mate and in such an insensitive and cowardly manner.

He won’t be the last man who found himself loving two women at once. Nor will he be the last man to succumb to temptation and desire in the arms of another woman, having to eventually decide on one, knowing full well that the discarded one will be ultimately hurt.

This book of poetry is dedicated to the only man I have ever really loved; to the man who used to call me ‘Gorgeous’; to the man who told me I was amazing and too intelligent for him.

This book is for the man who picked me up from the depths of despair after a horrible and emotionally abusive marriage; who showed me that there is nothing that I can’t do if I want to bad enough and; most importantly; to the man who showed me how to love him unconditionally and then; chose to severe me from his life with a text message, despite promising that he never would.

All of these poems have been written from my heart for him and him alone.

This book of poetry is for you, My Love, My Soul Mate, My Eros, and My Adonis, all rolled into one."
