It’s August and The Witch Squad members are back in Aspen Falls for their second and final year at the Paranormal Institute for Witches.

Excited to have their own place this year, instead of living in the dorms, the girls can’t wait to get settled in and catch up on everything that’s happened while they were apart over summer break. But when an unexpected newcomer arrives, throwing everything into a tailspin, the girls are forced to make the best of a bad situation.

Looking to blow off a little steam, the girls decide to throw a small back to school get-together for some old friends. But when their “little” get-together spirals out of control, the girls find themselves in hot water once again. The next morning, when the dust settles from their wild party, they discover that not everyone has gone home and once again they’re thrown into yet another mystery — one that might lead one of their own directly into the hands of danger.

With romantic relationships to contend with, a new headmistress, and magical woes, the action never stops for The Witch Squad.

Shattered: Logan Book 1 (The Logan Series) by [Davisson, Valerie]A car crash and a pink shoebox change Logan’s life forever. Then, her best friend is accused of murder.

In the first novel of Davisson’s thrilling, best-selling series, Logan loses her husband, her illusions, the company they built together, her music, and now, probably her job.

But when a young glassblower is brutally killed at the local arts festival and her good friend, Thomas Delgado, a Native American artist, is accused of the crime, Logan drops everything and comes to his defense.

It doesn’t help that Thomas is refusing to defend himself. As Logan struggles to maintain her still tenuous hold on her new life, she delves into the dangerous world of glassblowing in order to clear her friend’s name.

The deeper Logan digs, the more secrets she unearths, and the more unhinged the real killer becomes. Logan must find the truth before they kill again.

Tig Alden’s neighbor is a royal pain. Rebecca Whitley has managed to annoy pretty much everyone she’s met since she followed her youngest son to Southern Coastal University two years ago. Whitley’s little dog, Leo, doesn’t respect boundaries. She delights in leaving scathing reviews online trashing local restaurants, the latest play at the university, and even the town’s veterinarian.

When Mrs. Whitley turns up dead in her backyard pool, there’s no question that it was murder. Evidence points toward the owners of the local taco shop–the same people she accused of trying to kill her precious little Leo. Tig thinks the couple is innocent, but with so many people who hated Mrs. Whitley, finding her real killer won’t be easy.  (Amazon)

Baby Byrd by [Couch, Sofie]

Now, she is making a clean slate of it. She means to tell the truth about her past–to tell her child, tell the baby-daddy, tell the small-minded townsfolks. But now, another scandal has broken. There’s a missing manuscript, mistaken identity, and a couple of young people who just may be sharing more than a cup of coffee. They may be sharing the same gene pool.  (Amazon)

The Confectioner’s Guild

A magic cupcake. A culinary killer. The perfect recipe for murder.

Wren knew her sweet treats could work wonders, but she never knew they could work magic. She barely has time to wrap her head around the stunning revelation when the head of the prestigious Confectioner’s Guild falls down dead before her. Poisoned by her cupcake.

Now facing murder charges in a magical world she doesn’t understand, Wren must discover the true killer or face the headsman’s axe. But when her search for clues leads to a deep-rooted conspiracy that goes all the way to the top, she realizes that the guild master isn’t the only one at risk of death by chocolate.

If Wren can’t bring the powerful culprit to justice, she and her friends will meet a bittersweet end.

The Confectioner’s Coup

Wren thought things were bad when her boyfriend’s father tried to frame her for murder. But that was before a hostile army showed up at the city gates, ready to swallow Maradis whole. And before guild members began disappearing one by one–including the Confectioner’s Guild’s newest Gifted recruit.

Wren, suspecting the king is to blame for the disappearances, undertakes a dangerous investigation that sets her on a collision course with old and new enemies alike. Will she be able to find the missing guild members before tensions boil over into outright rebellion? Or are the guilds willing to go further than she ever realized to rid themselves of the king’s tyranny…

The Confectioner’s Truth

A deadly new enemy rules Alesia with an iron fist–and an unnatural interest in the magic of the Confectioner’s Guild. Betrayed by one of their own, Wren and her few remaining allies flee Maradis to secure whatever aid they can find.

But new dangers and old ghosts lurk around every corner, forcing Wren to confront truths she thought she’d buried deep long ago. Will Wren be able to piece together an alliance, and enough of her own shattered heart, to take back her home from those who hold it hostage? Or will her magic prove too tempting a morsel for her enemies to refuse…

The Confectioner’s Exile

Hale Firena has everything–looks, money, power, more girls than he knows what to do with. But in one night everything changes, as a bloody coup turns Hale into a penniless refugee on the run for his life.

Hale’s not cut out for real life–the thought of holding down a real job is almost more horrible than the pirates and bandits chasing him. Is Hale’s swagger enough to see him to safety, or has his luck truly run out?

Read the story of Hale Firena before he joined the Confectioner’s Guild in this Confectioner Chronicles prequel novella.

The Man in the White Linen Suit: A Stewart Hoag Mystery (Stewart Hoag Mysteries Book 11) by [Handler, David]The next clever, witty, and touching installment in the Edgar award-winning Stewart Hoag mystery series finds the beloved ghostwriter-sleuth and his faithful neurotic basset hound, Lulu, back in 1990’s New York City, investigating a bestselling author’s stolen manuscript and three murders linked to the crime.

Washed-up celebrity ghostwriter Stewart “Hoagy” Hoag has finally rediscovered his voice and is making progress on what he hopes will be his long-awaited second novel. Burrowed up in his less-than-luxurious, sweltering fifth floor walk-up, he tries not to think of the disparities between himself and his ex-wife, celebrity actress Merilee Nash, who is sifting through film offers—and also her fickle feelings for Hoagy—from her elegant eight-room apartment looking over Central Park. When Merilee offers her home for Hoagy’s use while she’s shooting on location, hope blossoms that he might finally get some real work done… and solidify their rekindling romance.

Then Hoagy receives a call from his literary agent asking if he can meet with publishing’s most ruthless and reviled editor, Sylvia James, for a drink at the Algonquin Hotel. After disclosing that aging literary genius Addison James—also Sylvia’s father and main client—has not in fact written his last two bestselling historical sagas, Sylvia reveals her suspicions that Addison’s assistant Tommy O’Brien—the true author—has run away with their most recent manuscript and is holding it for ransom. Tempted by Sylvia’s offer to bid a hefty advance for his novel-in-progress, Hoagy agrees to help unearth Tommy’s sudden disappearance. If only he’d known exactly what he was getting himself into, he might’ve saved himself from the ensuing grief that follows in his hot pursuit of Tommy. But then, that wouldn’t be a normal day in the life of Hoagy.

With clattering claims of a mugging, a stolen manuscript, and three murders, now it’s up to Hoagy and his short-legged sidekick Lulu to unravel this baffling, bizarre case.  (Amazon)
