Once Hunted, Twice Shy: A Cozy Paranormal Mystery (The Happily Everlasting Series Book 2) by [Roth, Mandy M.]Once Hunted, Twice Shy by NY Times & USA TODAY from Bestselling Author Mandy M. Roth

Welcome to Everlasting, Maine, where there’s no such thing as normal.

Wolf-shifter Hugh Lupine simply wants to make it through the month and win the bet he has with his best friend. He’s not looking to date anyone, or to solve a murder, but when a breathtaking beauty runs him over (literally), he’s left no choice but to take notice of the quirky, sassy newcomer. She’d be perfect if it wasn’t for the fact she’s the granddaughter of the local supernatural hunter. Even if he can set aside his feelings about her family, Penelope is his complete opposite in all ways.

Penelope Messing wanted to get away from the harsh reminder that her boyfriend of two years dumped her. Several pints of ice cream and one plane ticket to Maine later, she’s ready to forget her troubles. At least for a bit. When she arrives in the sleepy little fishing town of Everlasting for a surprise visit with her grandfather, she soon learns that outrunning one problem can lead to a whole mess of others. She finds herself the prime suspect in a double homicide. She doesn’t even kill spiders, let alone people, but local law enforcement has their eyes on her.

The secrets of Everlasting come to light and Penelope has to not only accept that things that go bump in the night are real, but apparently, she’s destined for a man who sprouts fur and has a bizarre obsession with fish sticks. Can they clear Penelope’s name and set aside their differences to find true love?  (Amazon)

Danger at the Dive Shop (A Starling and Swift Cozy Mystery Book 3) by [Mandrake, M. J.]For a limited time, preorder the third in the series for ONLY .99!! 

Starling and Swift are on the hunt for a killer― and a lost pirate treasure! 

Kitty Swift and Chica, her service dog, are enjoying a scuba diving trip that Kitty won playing Bingo. Due to the discovery of a gold coin, most of their group is obsessed with finding a hoard of ancient treasure! Kitty doesn’t mind the pirate booty fever that’s gripped her fellow divers because ―refreshingly― no dead bodies have turned up to ruin her vacation.

Kitty is sure her streak of morbidly bad luck has ended… until Chica starts to give off her “warning: death is in the wind” signals. Kitty tries to placate her psychic service dog because they have only one more day to explore the vibrant ocean life near Cozumel, and the last dive is right where the treasure is rumored to be! Chica must be sensing residual bad juju from the stolen property.
Of course, Chica is right, and a body turns up where Kitty least expects it. She calls her handsome new friend from the American embassy only to discover he’s already on his way. The dead man is an American from a politically powerful family, the dive shop is not all it’s pretending to be, and Kitty’s life is in danger― yet again.

In this third installment of a new cozy mystery series, Starling and Swift join forces to track down the heartless killer before anyone else meets a gruesome end.

Play Dead: a novel of suspense by [Halliday, Gemma]From #1 Kindle, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Gemma Halliday, whose books have been downloaded over a million times, comes a novel with the physiological thrill of Gone Girl and the suspenseful twists of Big Little Lies…

She faked her death to escape life in a war torn country. But now her enemies have tracked her down, and this time they want her to stay dead.

Anya Danielovich lives with the guilt of what she had to do to survive when her native country divided against itself. But that was a long time ago. Today she’s become Anna Smith, a single, thirtysomething woman living in San Francisco with a simple desire to lead a better life. Even if she is still haunted by her past—the enemies she made, the mentor she betrayed, the woman she was. She’s taken care to cover her tracks over the years, but she’s beginning to feel like she’s being watched…

Nick Dade is a hired gunman, the best of the best. He’s read Anya’s file, knows the unspeakable acts she committed, and after weeks of surveillance, he’s ready to pull the trigger on his latest target. That is until someone else beats him to the punch. With his agenda shattered, Dade is suddenly thrown together with the woman he’s been sent to eliminate. Who is she really? Who hired the second hit? And who can he trust?
