Among New York City's Gilded Age elite, one family will defy convention. Helen Wilcox has one desire: to successfully launch her daughters into society. From the upper crust herself, Helen's unconventional - if happy - marriage has made the girls' social position precarious. Then her husband gambles the family fortunes on an elevated railroad that he claims will transform the face of the city and the way the people of New York live, but will it ruin the Wilcoxes first?
There aren't many women in professional auto racing - but that didn't stop Rebecca Moore from joining driver Ian Browning's pit crew. Working pit lane, her innate toughness shields her from the taunts and insults being tossed her way. But, the bullet that whizzes past her head, shattering the windshield of the vintage race car in her care, can't be as easily ignored - nor can the body she finds in the cockpit the day before the race. Once again, Rebecca's forced to uncover a killer and the deadly secrets awaiting her.

Between 1896 and 1922, in addition to a series of full-length novels Lucy Maud Montgomery published over 140 short stories. In general, these tales are reflective of the coming of age themes and the sylvan settings which are explored in greater detail in the novels.
Gray Smythe has been the unchallenged leader of their group of friends for years. Stoic and determined, he's managed to be there for them all through some crazy shit. But when Robbie, the only girl in their group, gets into a car accident, the line between friendship and lover suddenly gets a hell of a lot thinner.
Rebecca Moore thought she left violent death behind her, but the bodies keep mounting...and they're begging for justice. Having abandoned her career as a Washington, DC, reporter to run her late uncle's classic car restoration shop, Rebecca wants peace. Then the brutally stabbed corpse of a lovely dancer is discovered in the back seat of a vintage Bentley being towed by her ex-con workers - the cops' preferred suspects. When a second young dancer is pulled from the Potomac, Rebecca throws down her wrenches.
Pennsylvania writer Elsie Singmaster's collection of fictional short stories related to the bloody and pivotal Battle of Gettysburg presents a variety of colorful, compelling, and flawed characters profoundly affected by the famous battle. These stories span five decades, beginning on July 1, 1863, and concluding with the 50th anniversary of the battle, the year this collection was published.
Rebecca Moore has had more than her fill of dead men.... The first, her lover David, took his own life in her bedroom just outside of Washington, DC - a totally senseless act of violence that causes a severely shaken Rebecca to quit her job as an investigative journalist and flee to rural Maryland to run her late Uncle Walt's classic automobile restoration shop.
Murder reignites dormant passions between Toledo Homicide Detective Veronica Jadzinski (Jadz) and her ex-husband, retired-cop-turned-PI Nate Solomon - not all of them good. He’s pushing to reopen the shooting of his boyhood friend, a case that Jadz and her partner wrote off as a drug deal gone bad. Emotions and egos collide as Nate and Jadz clash over who to believe: the victim’s grieving mother, his estranged sister with secrets of her own, or the demanding lieutenant who warns Jadz off the case for questionable reasons.
Once again, the Sophia Island Shrimp Festival is over. Thousands attended to eat shrimp, shop, and watch the pirates come ashore as usual, but this year’s temperatures were warmer than ever. Everyone is happy that the busy hot weekend is over, and everyone came through unscathed. Or so it seems. Jewel and Craig Mantelle also made it through their kids and families’ first visit to their new island home.
Jewel Mantelle has never lived in the South, much less on the coast, so moving from Chicagoland to the historic North Florida coastal town of Sophia Island seems like just the adventure to fix her marriage. However, when she arrives, she finds that it’s awfully hot and humid there and that these Southern folks really like to hug. Her husband’s past on the island includes a creaky old house in the historic district and lots of nosy relatives he’d forgotten to mention.
Beloved Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery, famous for the Anne of Green Gables series, was also a prolific writer of short stories, poems, and essays. This collection is part of Montgomery's wider portfolio of 500 stories spanning 20 years.
With current statistics suggesting that the average American over the age of 14 engages with screens upwards of 10 hours a day, the topic of our growing dependence upon technology applies to nearly everyone. While the effects differ at each point of development, real changes to the brain, relationships, and personal lives are well documented. Deviced! explores these alterations and offers a realistic look at how we can better use technology and break away from the bad habits we’ve formed.
Pretty paper and bows make promises, the gift inside rarely keeps. December comes to Chancey in this eighth audiobook in the series with promises of new birth, new love, new opportunities all tied up with shiny bows. Christmas is making a comeback in Chancey with Missus Blue ribbons tied on everything that stands still. Newcomers to town gussy up the gazebo complete with magnolia leaves, tiny lights, and even a chandelier. Remembering the Christmas of 1945, the Chancey Parlor and Depot is opened with solemnity, white roses, and a renewed feud.
October arrives with Carolina holding way too many secrets...or you could say not holding them exactly. The town has barely gotten over the loss of their patriarch F.M. when one of the most stable marriages around is on the rocks, maybe completely over the cliff. Then the movie people hit town, and they don’t seem to be helping.
Jewel Mantelle is just beginning to get used to the humidity in her new Southern home on Sophia Island, when Turtle Season opens way too early. At least, it's too early according to her friends with Turtle Trackers. Is it a true sea turtle nest found on a stormy April morning? Not likely, when a body is eventually discovered buried where the eggs should be.
Aren't detours supposed to have big warning signs? So why do life's detours come out of the blue and hit so hard? It's been a year since they opened the bed-and-breakfast for Railfans in the small town of Chancey, and the Jessups feel as if they've always lived in the Georgia Mountains. After a hard summer, Carolina is looking forward to the cooler temperatures of autumn and the routine of the school year. However...unplanned detours mean more family in town, families pulling apart at the seams, and just plain ol' heartache.
What if your children are all miserable, Carolina wonders, but your life is finally coming together? Will’s new marriage and new job, are already old. Savannah’s reduced to chasing a guy and she’s playing the Southern Belle to do it. Bryan is labeled a stalker. But maybe worse, is he a world-class liar? Carolina’s friends are having kid worries, too. Laney’s finding the age gap between high school senior and newborn grows with her exhaustion. Susan’s kids too quickly get accustomed, and attached, to their new station in life in their ritzy mountain community.
Overnight, a shiny new business opens on Chancey, Georgia’s Main Street, with a manager straight from New York City, who doesn’t find the South charming, at all. Carolina’s bookstore is also opening on Main Street. If she can keep Patty’s mind on books instead of a new romance. Then, when a secret wedding catches everyone off guard, a springtime tornado in Chancey just seems like icing on the cake. (Wedding cake, that is.) Trains still run by Crossings, the B and B for rail road enthusiasts. Ruby still sells coffee and muffins. And kids still get out of school for the summer.
Carolina knew moving teenagers from the Atlanta suburbs to a small Georgia mountain town was a horrible idea. She knew opening a B&B was an even worse plan. Oncoming headlights aren’t only aimed at her family, the town of Chancey is being set up for a collision that could change everything. And as that unfolds, Carolina’s husband Jackson is smack dab in the middle of it all, his hand on the throttle, going full steam ahead.
Inviting your ex-spouse for the holidays might not be a good idea. Especially when folks don’t know you were married before. Carolina quit her job, and for the first time ever, she’s doing the holidays as a stay-at-home mom. And doesn’t all that extra time mean everything will be perfect? Then, the RV showed up. The RV with her parents, their dogs, and their obsession with Gone with the Wind. Then, the college kids showed up.
