Something wicked this way comes…
All homicide detective Dylan Collins wants is a few hours of pleasure to take his mind off of the case haunting him. A serial killer is stalking the streets of Charleston, SC – a killer who calls himself The Grim Reaper. When the woman he’d just spent the night with turns up and offers her services as a psychic consultant on the case, his ardor quickly cools. Last thing he needs is to get tangled up with a con artist.
It doesn’t take long for Dylan to realize Alexandra King is the real deal – and the killer’s next target. Dylan’s protective instincts battle his reluctance to get too involved with a woman he isn’t sure he can trust. As they get closer to finding the killer, they also grow closer to one another, but will Alexandra’s secret agenda destroy their chance at happiness – if the killer doesn’t strike first?

Susie’s 2013 So Far Top Picks
I must admit that when this book reached the end of the trail and those cattle were delivered to Montana, I nearly shed a tear. I felt like I had walked every step of the trail from the Rio Grande to Montana with the Circle Dot outfit.
The Log of a Cowboy is actually a novel published in 1903, though author Andy Adams based it on his experiences driving cattle on the trail. I decided to read it for research, and ended up being moved by this authentic story. And it’s priced at just £1.28.
The Whole Truth is a legal thriller featuring a lawyer recovering from a coke addiction who drives an ancient Cadillac. There’s a lot to love here. This book from attorney-turned-writer James Scott Bell kept me guessing. Just when I thought Steve Conroy couldn’t do one more thing to mess up his life, I was proven wrong. Yet I was rooting for him the whole time. It is available for £6.49.
I read a lot of Christian fiction and At Every Turn was a refreshing historical romance.
Alyce Benson, who secretly loves to drive automobiles, makes an impetus pledge to give money to missionaries in Africa. Her efforts to fulfill the pledge lead her on a funny journey with a most lovable hero. This book is now selling for £3.42.

My goal of a book a week in 2013 is well ahead of schedule as I have just finished the 50th book, as well as 60 novellas and shorter reads. Picking three was challenging, so I’ve chosen four – because I can.
Beloved Irish writer Maeve Binchy’s last novel was released after her death. A Week in Winter (£6.49) is set on the rugged Irish coast and filled with classic Binchy characters. The first half tells the story of Chicky Starr and a lie she perpetuates all of her adult life. After 30 years Chicky returns to her hometown to renovate an old stone mansion into an inn. The second half of the book tells the story of the eclectic guests who visit during the inn’s opening week. The book is a bittersweet read.
Almost all romances are written about new love, but Nicolas Sparks’ The Notebook (£3.99) is an emotional novel of lasting love told from a man’s perspective. The love Noah Calhoun had for his wife is the love every woman desires from her spouse. Sparks stated that the novel was inspired by his wife’s grandparents.
The Homecoming (£3.35) is the sequel to The Unfinished Gift (£6.88) both by Dan Walsh. Set during the final year of World War II, Shawn Collins faces life without his beloved wife Elizabeth while serving in the Army Air Corps and providing care for his son Patrick. Katherine Townsend, the social worker who cared for Patrick when Shawn’s wife died, fills a need in both their lives in this heartwarming inspirational novel. Walsh’s writing of wartime events was realistic and suspenseful.
Lauren Royal has re-issued her backlisted titles of several historical romance trilogies. Tempting Juliana (£4.11) can be read as a stand-alone novel, but is part of the Temptations Trilogy (£7.49 bundle). Lady Juliana Chase has the best of intentions: Her friend Amanda must find a husband. Dr. James Trevor is a lonely widower who needs a wife, whether he realizes it or not. What could possibly go wrong?
