Recently widowed Archie Lemons, private investigator, is back to work on his first case since finding his wife murdered in their home. After a previous case of finding a missing girl went nowhere fast, he turns his attention to finding the husband of a fiery redhead who walked into his office when he was feeling his lowest. With nothing left to lose and an opportunity to focus on something besides self-pity, Archie takes the case. Little did he know how deadly and devastating the seemingly innocent case would turn out to be.
Darkness Once More is a thriller with big laughs, from Grant Fieldgrove, author of Thick as Thieves and The Lost and Found.

A Night at the Animal Shelter

The Blithedale Animal Shelter has just ended its annual holiday sale for dogs, and miraculously all but a few have been adopted. An unexpected, welcome surprise for the shelter staff, and great news for the lucky pups who found homes. But for the dogs that remain—a high-strung Lab puppy, a three-legged Chihuahua, a Golden Retriever, a hard-luck Pit Bull Terrier; and a smart, old dog—it will be a lonely and cold Christmas Eve. Their favorite employee, Ginny Collins, is cozying up their cages and giving them some love before the shelter closes for the holiday. The sun is setting, but a night to remember is about to begin.

One Enchanted Christmas: A Novella (Enchanted Christmas Collection Book 1)

Last December, mystery author Maren Grant had the most perfect night of her life. On a glimmering winter evening, she got to watch the photo shoot for her very first book and ended up on a magical date with the cover model himself—Colin Renwycke.

Fast forward one year. This December, with a looming deadline, restless spirit and her creative spark long since gone, Maren is desperate to get unstuck. And she can’t get Colin out of her head…or his year-old open invitation to spend a couple weeks writing at his family’s farm.

Drew Renwycke never planned to come home and take over the Renwycke family farm. But he’s spent too many years watching his siblings unravel, including his brother, Colin, after one terrible family mistake.
