Excerpt:
Damn him. Damn him. Damn him. Like a bad apple, he just had to pop up in her new home. She’d left Durban to escape him, and here he was, back again, tormenting her as ever. Awful enough that memories of him were with her all the time, without him turning up in the flesh. And what flesh it was….

Evernight Editor’s Pick! 
"This story is absolutely brilliant. It is the best thing I've read as a fiction editor." — JC Chute
  
Jess Waterford’s mother is evil. Since she took off seven years ago—just days after Jess’s ninth birthday—without so much as a wave goodbye, Jess has always wondered what happened to her. And despite the end of her mother’s mental and physical abuse, the memories and the scars still remain. Jess conceals the hurt within by practicing her photography, and by spending as much time as her dad will allow with her baseball star boyfriend, Brody Campbell.

Determined to make use of her new camera, Jess dives into photographing everything in sight. But periodically the resulting prints are flawed, ever so slightly: a smudge on a tree trunk; a blemish in the bus window. These imperfections are not as random as they may seem, however, and Brody and Jess soon discover together that each of these pictures combine to form another image—the grisly image of a murder scene, with Jess’s mother as the victim.

As the new photograph takes shape, Jess’s desire to complete it consumes her, and Brody’s health begins to deteriorate. Torn between her quest to reveal her mother’s killer and her continued worry over Brody’s failing health, Jess finally finds the last piece to the puzzle, and the answer sends her world spiraling into depths from which she may never recover.


14+ for violence, sexuality, and adult situations
Excerpt:
Brody’s temple began to pound with each beat of his heart and he tried to push the pain away with his fingertips. Try as he might, the throbbing continued to grow and he unwillingly exhaled an agonized moan.

Review: The Emerald Isle Trilogy by Renee Vincent

The Emerald Isle Trilogy
Renee Vincent

Review: Everyone once in a while an author comes along who can tell a story like no other, and Renee Vincent is one of those authors. Her lush descriptions of setting, her attention to historical detail, all weave together into a story of love, lust, and yes, even a man's faith in God. To take a story to places where some authors would only dare to go--and to take a risk on telling the story as it was meant to be told, even if it is against the norm, takes both courage and skill.

The Emerald Isle Trilogy is a deep, intense, and powerful story of love in a time of hardship. It is a story of love that crosses over the boundaries of life and death, and even time. I guarantee you will never forget the characters, and you will never forget how they lived and loved. Renee Vincent tells the story of Daegan and Mara from her heart. I highly recommend.

Poplar Place, new from Ellen Butler

The sleepy, small town of Denton, South Carolina, possesses the tranquil life Cara Baker craves, but will her reclusive tenant shake up her newfound serenity? 

Newly minted librarian Cara Baker effectively cuts ties with her tumultuous life in Pittsburgh and moves down to South Carolina, where she embraces the peaceful, laid-back style of small town living. Everything seems to be falling into place when Cara finds the perfect house to round out her new plans. Well…perfect except for the immovable hermit living on the top floor. She throws caution to the wind and buys the fabulous house—hermit and all—without meeting him. Eventually, by wooing her reclusive renter with notes and mouthwatering meals, he caves and invites her up to the apartment. Preconceived notions are blown out of the water, when she finds Danny isn’t the Mr. Mole she envisioned. Sparks fly and libidos heat up as the two begin spending time together.

Unfortunately, phone calls from her past bring Cara’s summer idle to an abrupt halt. Will demons from a former life destroy Cara’s newly established tranquility?
