Kyra Aberdeen is a YouTube sensation. Her bubbling personality and fresh beauty capture her audience each week, but they don’t know the truth—she’s just faking it. Beneath the surface of light-hearted smiles is a simmering darkness threatening to pull Kyra under.
When Kyra moves to Canaan Island and buys her deceased mother’s childhood home, she hopes to confront the lurking shadows haunting her every step. But when she meets her grumpy contractor, even her best-laid plans start to unravel.
Hale Cooper is as brutally honest as he is intriguing. He hates fakers, and isn’t afraid to call Kyra on her false personality. Yet, she is drawn to him, and the unexpected attraction to a man who challenges her to be her true self lands her in unchartered waters.
But if she lowers her guard and allows herself to be honest with Hale, will the darkness creep in too?

Bone broth can be described as a ‘prehistoric’ food, with archeologists discovering proof that people long ago used to prepared bone broth. It is not a new trend. Making bone broth is actually an ancient tradition that goes as far back as the early Stone Age period. When our human ancestors were discovering fire and how to make simple tools, their main source of nutrition was animals. They may not have made bone broth like we do today, but archeological findings suggest that they had an innate understanding of the nutritional benefits of bone marrow and bone broth.
It is difficult to pin down exactly when our ancestors first started to boil bones in water and simmer them with plants and herbs, but what we do know is that bone broth soon spread to all parts of the world. Every human culture, in one way or another, soon made this savory broth a staple of their diet. Today, bone broth has become a major ingredient used by many home cooks to soothe the aches and pains of colds and flus. I is also utilized by top chefs to enhance many types of dishes because of its rich and complex flavor.

O.J. Is Innocent and I Can Prove It: The Shocking Truth about the Murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman
Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were brutally murdered at her home on Bundy Drive in Brentwood, California, on the night of June 12, 1994. The days and weeks that followed were full of spectacle, including a much-watched car chase and the eventual arrest of O. J. Simpson for the murders. The televised trial that followed was unlike any that the nation had ever seen. Long since convinced of O. J.’s guilt, the world was shocked when the jury of the “trial of the century” read the verdict of not guilty. To this day, the LAPD, Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, mainstream media, and much of the world at large remain firmly convinced that O. J. Simpson got away with murder.
According to private investigator William Dear, it is precisely this assuredness that has led both the police and public to overlook a far more likely suspect. Dear now compiles more than seventeen years of investigation by his team of forensic experts and presents evidence that O. J. was not the killer. In O. J. Is Innocent and I Can Prove It, Dear makes the controversial, but compelling, case that it may have been the “overlooked suspect,” O. J.’s eldest son, Jason, who committed the grisly murders. Sure to stir the pot and raise some eyebrows, this book is a must-read.

Rose’s past won’t be kept away, though, even by St. Elizabeth’s; she cannot remain untouched by what she has left behind, even as she cannot change who she has become in the leaving.
