Maggie Phillips hasn’t had it easy. As the wife of retired Navy SEAL, and the adoptive mother of two little hellions, Maggie is constantly looking for ways to improve her family’s financial situation.

While Maggie struggles to prove the man’s innocence, her deadbeat brother arrives, determined to sell Maggie and Neil on his next great scheme and to mooch with a vengeance.

Carnies and Wildcats: Ulciscor by Robert Spearman
Mystery, Thriller & Suspense, 4.9 stars, 32 reviews
How far will a father go to avenge his daughter’s death? Revenge is a dish best served cold, and sweeter when served in the South. In November 1980, one week after the Wildcats and Vikings squared off for their last football game of the season, someone raised the stakes beyond the realm of practical jokes, petty vandalism and theft. Someone in town committed a cruel, monstrous act. The carnival was in town with its rides, games, and sideshows and was finishing its last night in Valdosta before returning to Florida for the winter. After the carnival closed for the night, people leaving the back gate discovered a twelve-year-old carny girl’s lifeless body in front of the back gate’s ticket booth. Hanging around her neck was a sign: “We Hate Carnies and Wildcats”.
A Million Steps by Kurt Koontz
Nonfiction, Travel, 4.6 stars, 493 reviews
Kurt Koontz thought he was well prepared for his 490-mile walking trip on the historic Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route in Spain. He was fit and strong. He had a good guidebook and all the right equipment. His pilgrim passport would grant him access to the shelter of hostels along the way. But all that, however helpful, did not begin to encompass the grandeur of his external or internal adventure. A Million Steps climbs over the high meadows of the Pyrenees, quests through the unceasing wind of the Meseta, and dances in the rains of Galicia. While following the yellow arrows that mark the route, Koontz also navigates through his personal history of addiction, recovery, and love. With outgoing humor and friendliness, he embraces the beauty of the countryside and joyful connections to other pilgrims from around the world. Part diary, part travelogue, A Million Steps is a journey within a journey all the way to the Cathedral de Santiago de Compostela and beyond.

Mythology & Folk Tales, 4.3 stars, 609 reviews

She resides in Limbo City, the modern capital of the collective afterlives, where she likes to stick it to the man (the legendary Grim Reaper himself) by harvesting the bare minimum of souls required of her. She’d much rather be hanging out with Gabriel, her favorite archangel, at Purgatory Lounge. But when a shocking promotion falls in her lap, Lana learns something that could unravel the very fabric of Eternity. If the job isn’t completed, there could be some real hell to pay.
She’s Not There (TJ Peacock & Lisa Rayburn Mysteries Book 1) by Marla Madison
Mystery, Thriller & Suspense, 4.3 stars, 417 reviews
Is the rising number of abused women who’ve gone missing a statistical anomaly? Or is a serial killer targeting this vulnerable group of women?
When the Milwaukee Police Department refuses to investigate because no bodies have been discovered, Lisa Rayburn, the clinical psychologist who discovers the anomaly, is drawn into an investigation to discover the cause after one of her own clients goes missing. She finds herself forming an unlikely alliance with a former policewoman turned security consultant, TJ Peacock, and the husbands of two of the missing women who may themselves be murderers.
When TJ is attacked, and a woman looking remarkably like Lisa is found murdered, they know . . . someone is willing to kill to protect his secret.
GIRL JACKED: A Detective Jack Stratton Mystery Series by Christopher Greyson
Mystery, Thriller & Suspense, 4.3 stars, 740 reviews
Deep down inside, Jack knew he was a violent man. There’d always been a beast inside him, wanting to break out of its cage. He feared it. Jack knew what it was: hate, pure and simple. He’d locked it away, but the monster didn’t die; it grew. Part of him wanted to close his eyes and run from the blackness that burned through his veins, but now Jack embraced the hate—he released the beast. Police Officer Jack Stratton is hiding. Hiding from the world. From pain. From the memories of losing his best friend, Chandler, in Iraq. Suffering from PTSD, and isolated from those he cares about, the last thing Jack expects to hear is Chandler’s sister is missing. The words cut straight to his core. Although the police think she just took off, he knows Michelle would never leave those she loved behind–like he did. Now Jack must take action, find Michelle and bring her home… or die trying.
