Rating: 4.5 #ad
Stoneham, New Hampshire, is a haven to bookstores, including Tricia’s own mystery shop, Haven’t Got a Clue, but is sadly lacking in bed and breakfasts. Pippa and Jon Comfort’s Sheer Comfort Inn opens its doors to the public in a week and the couple has offered some locals a free night as a trial run.
But what should have been a pleasant overnight stay for Tricia becomes a nightmare when she makes two startling discoveries: Pippa’s murdered body in the backyard, and the fact that her husband Jon is actually Harry Tyler, a man Tricia loved—and believed dead—for nearly twenty years.

30 Days in San Diego
by Joanna Loring
Rating: Brand New release #ad
This unusual multicultural novella is based on events taken from The San Diego Union-Tribune newspaper articles between March 15 and April 14, 2015. Although the events that happened in San Diego are newspaper-based – this is a piece of fictional work. Anita, Jon-Jose, and Maria need to leave Tijuana quickly. Their goal is to reach Miguel’s Cantina in Old Town, San Diego, in California. The three are accidentally separated, which forces them to take their own journey.
All three encounter bizarre situations that are not uncommon. Although the story has a quirky element, it identifies realistic societal problems that include homelessness, drugs, human trafficking, and mass shootings in America.
