Death on Alder
by Beth Everett

Take a trip that's a little bit Nancy Drew, a dash Cheech and Chong and, and just enough Streets of San Francisco to make you want to hop on a cable car.
Lee Harding can’t find happiness in the harsh east coast winters. A trip to her hometown of San Francisco is meant to lift her spirits. She stays with her sister Alice’s home at the Twenty Alder compound, a tiny courtyard with five separate apartments. The residents are scurrying to prepare for their landlord Martha’s birthday celebration. The courtyard is lit with strings of lights, the bar is ready and lanterns are being hung on the enormous oak trees.
When Lee is in New Jersey, she does nothing but dream of moving back to San Francisco, but this trip is proving that you cannot go home again. There seems to be new buildings everywhere, and the funky city of her past is getting harder and harder to find. Bohemian Landlord Martha Byrne represents all that is loved about old San Francisco. When she is murdered in her apartment after her party, Lee is determined to figure out which of the tenants is responsible.
The detective on the case is a started and pressed cop named Erik Healy. Lee’s position as a guest in the compound gives her unfettered access to the politics that go on between the tenants at Twenty Alder Street. She shares her concerns with the detective and soon the two have formed a friendship that has a little too much heat. Lee is reading Hemingway’s, A Moveable Feast and decides that the author died full of regret. She keeps this in mind as she toys with the idea of something further with Erik Healy.
The Harding sisters distract themselves from the grim mood at the apartment house by touring their old haunts. The scars from their tragic childhood have left them with painful wounds, and they find lighthearted relief in weed and alcohol.
It seems just about everyone in the complex has a motive for wanting Martha dead, but no one more than the hot headed Miles Alcazar. Just when Lee is sure the man is responsible, he turns up dead. Someone is taking out the residents one by one and she fears her sister Alice could be next.
Death on Alder is a love letter to San Francisco, sisterhood and the myth of home.
Mossy Creek
by Jill Behe
PRICE: $0.99
Welcome to Mossy Creek. We’re small and easy-going with a lot of community pride and camaraderie. What we don’t have a lot of is crime.
A close-knit laid-back little borough, so close to the southern border of Pennsylvania we’re almost in West Virginia. Townsfolk like to say: “We’re south enough to lend credence to our slight drawl, but sufficiently north of the Mason-Dixon to be ‘damn Yankees’.”
None of us were prepared for murder … especially involving a teenager.

But Detective Ryan Shepherd realizes there’s more to this death than meets the eye when he discovers that Verna was not killed by a flying piece of wood, as was originally suspected.
Why would anyone want to kill Verna? That’s the question bothering Ryan and Heather. There’s no apparent motive, and no one knows seems to know where to begin looking for suspects.
Did Verna know something about someone she was trying to decide whether or not to reveal? What could Verna have known?
Join Heather, Ryan, and all the regulars of Hillside, Texas, as they try to figure out who killed Verna and why. The answer may surprise you!

This is an inspiring West tries to buy East story of hope, possibility and a prophecy that promises a Free Tibet. 'Taking it With You' is a rich, light hearted drama that has spirit and soul and humour. "An intoxicatingly delicious, inspiring read." It compares the fear of death in the west with the acceptance and understanding of death’s role in life in the east. It contrasts saffron with Armani, compassion with selfishness and happiness with profound unhappiness - in a good way. This book has been blessed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Once upon a time there were only two certainties, death and taxes but now if you have enough money taxes seem optional, at least for some, but death can still not be cheated. Everybody knows that you can't take anything with you when you die. Or can you? Read this book to find out.

Heart Strings
by Mira Bailee
Before Devon Stone met Olivia Margot, his life was a train wreck, but he wasn't the only one.
Meet Miles Riot, the guitarist to the band on the rise, Tempest Ultra. The record labels are after them. The adoring fans are after them. The tabloids are after them.
Abigail Clarke is a music journalist--definitely not a paparazzi rat--who's been assigned to go on tour with the band. But for this small town, Texas girl, traveling with the chaotic and reckless crew is the opposite of fun. She'd much prefer the soulful twangs of an acoustic guitar in a coffee shop to the eardrum-assaulting riffs and violent mosh pits that Tempest evokes. Good thing she's a professional. Abby's certain she'll get her story one way or another.
Miles knows Abby will have plenty of drama to report. From rock star hijinks to deep, dark secrets, Abby has the power to bury this band before they're ever signed.
He'll have to keep a close eye on this woman to make sure she doesn't get in the way...
