Lost Soul (Harbinger P.I. Book 1) (affiliate link)
Meet Alec Harbinger, Preternatural Investigator
I’m the guy you come to when your spouse gets bitten by a werewolf, or your boyfriend is kidnapped by a demon. I’m the guy who knows what to do when an evil sorcerer casts a curse on you.
At least, I was that guy until the Society of Shadows sent me to a sleepy town in Maine that had a rating of zero on the supernatural occurrences scale.
I planned to spend my days sitting in the office and drinking coffee made by my new assistant Felicity.
But when a woman hires me to find out if her son has been possessed by a demon at a rich kids’ party, and a young man comes to the office insisting he’s been bitten by a werewolf, the supernatural occurrences scale jumps from zero to hero.

…If a kickass middle-aged bookkeeper got sucked into a spy’s life…

When RCMP officer John Kane kills her attacker, Aydan hopes her troubles are over. But Kane’s investigation implicates her in a techno-espionage plot, and criminal charges become the least of her worries when she finds herself in the crosshairs of the same dangerous group Kane suspects her of aiding.
Armed with only her analytical mind, a warped sense of humour, and a penchant for profanity, Aydan faces off against international spies and an RCMP officer who’s not what he seems.

The Secrets in Silence (affiliate link)
One woman’s incredible story of life on the front lines as an emergency medical worker in New York City.
On the streets of New York City, EMTs and paramedics do more than respond to emergencies; they eat and drink together, look out for each other’s safety, mercilessly make fun of one another, date one other, and, most crucially, share terrifying experiences and grave injustices suffered under the city’s long-broken EMS system.
Their loyalty to one another is fierce and absolute. As Jennifer Murphy shows in the gripping and moving First Responder, they are a family. A dysfunctional family, perhaps, but what family isn’t?
