Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

When Noah McDermott, owner of McDermott Construction, walks out into the bright morning sunshine, the last thing he expects is to get run over by a careless woman in a yellow Mercedes. His anger quickly fades into curiosity when the driver turns out to have endless legs and bottomless brown eyes.

Avery Price, daughter of a publishing millionaire, should have followed her instinct and kept driving instead of stopping at a dot on the map. But Trouble, Wyoming is growing on her and she needs a job – fast.

Lately, Noah’s been going through office managers like people go through sticks of gum. He needs someone with a tough backbone to get his office organized. However, he did not want that someone to be the same woman who left her bumper imprint on his backside. As the two of them work together day after day, the sparks fly. Surely they can be professional and keep from acting on their attraction toward one another. As they spend more time together, Noah starts to get the feeling Avery isn’t who she says she is. Is she just a girl looking for a change or is there more going on than she’s telling him?

Avery quickly adapts to her new life in the picturesque town of Trouble. She has a job for the first time in her life and a boss who turns her on more than her ex-fiancé ever did. But did she make the right choice by leaving home or is she falling deeper into trouble?

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Serena Murphy was losing her mind.

Every night Serena stood on the deck of O’Flanagans Tavern, searching Maine’s rugged coast for a sign of her husband’s body. Though he was pronounced lost at sea, Alan Murphy still haunted her as only his malevolent spirit could. In the loft above her tavern, Serena hears footsteps pace across her living room floor, yet when she turns, no one is there.

Alan would not let a little thing like death stop him from tormenting her. If she could just find his body, surely this torture would stop.

It had been ten years since Brett Murphy saw his sister in-law, although the separation was by design, to avoid temptation. Now Brett was in Victory Cove, not to declare his feelings for Serena, but to discover the truth about his brother’s death. In doing so, he must battle Serena’s ghosts, both real and contrived.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Josh Michaels is worth more dead than alive. He just doesn’t know it yet. He has no idea why someone would try to kill him, clearly that’s exactly what happened. When an SUV forced Josh’s car off the road and into a river, it might have been an accident. But when Josh looked up at the road, expecting to see the SUV’s driver rushing to help him, all he saw was the driver watching him calmly…then giving him a “thumbs down” sign. That was merely the first attempt on Josh’s life, all of them designed to look like accidents, and all of them very nearly fatal. With his time–and maybe his luck–running out and no one willing to believe him, Josh had better figure out who wants him dead and why…before it’s too late.

The Time Baroness is the story of Dr. Cassandra Reilly, a scientist from the year 2120 who embarks upon a time travel journey to England of 1820. Her purpose is to conduct an experiment: living for a year in the guise of a wealthy widow and interacting within the Regency world. Though she has painstakingly prepared for the experience, her new neighbors in Hampshire County sense something strange about her, and though most embrace her for her kindness and charm, some are shocked by her odd ways. Ultimately though, her beauty attracts a handsome violinist, also new to the neighborhood, and they begin an affair, which further endangers her reputation in the community.

As she is struggling to fit in, her grown son, James, suddenly arrives on her doorstep, popping in from the future. His presence is one more component that could cause her masquerade to unravel. James becomes a popular addition to the Hampshire society, but he makes a terrible mistake. He brings with him a device from the future and shows it to a young woman with whom he is smitten. She is terrified and creates an uproar. James is arrested for possessing a dangerous and subversive object and it is up to his mother to free him from a London prison and return him to the future before her enemies succeed in convicting him. Help comes from a surprising source, and ultimately Cassandra realizes that people, and love, are not always what they seem to be.

Ocean Boulevard

Ocean Boulevard by John Schmierer is 99 cents in the Amazon Kindle store, and has received an average user rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars based on 5 customer reviews.  You can pick up your copy by clicking here or typing in http://amzn.to/j067d5 into your computer’s web browser.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Wes Marshall wasn’t prepared for his fall from grace; he was too busy enjoying the rewards that a lifetime of hard work and luck had given him. He looked forward to spending the rest of a long and happy life with Kathleen, the girl he’d married right out of high school, and watching his daughter’s career blossom.

That was before Kathleen died in a suspicious accident, and when Marshall began to lose touch with reality. It was the only explanation for his obsession with Debra, a new and much younger woman, and the quiet marriage ceremony they held so soon after the funeral. It’s not until he’s on the run from the police and pursued by two unrelenting strangers that Marshall sees what a fool he’s been. Nothing was as it seemed, but by now Marshall’s fall is complete and there’s nothing he can do to make things right. He can’t last forever living as a homeless outcast whose survival dictates that he blend in to a world every bit as dangerous as the one he’s hiding from. If he has any hope at all, it lies with Christine Blake, the woman who unwittingly framed him for the brutal murder aboard his boat.
