Atlantis: The Eighth Continent (affiliate link)
If you thought Atlantis was a myth, this book may change your mind.
Legends suggest that, for thousands of years before the beginning of recorded history, a powerful civilisation flourished in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. This breathtakingly advanced island continent boasted splendid cities, golden temples, crowded sea ports from which the far-reaching influence of Atlantis spread to the rest of the world, until its destruction in an overwhelming cataclysm.
Now, based on careful study of scientific undersea research, Charles Berlitz shows that the Atlantis story is not legend but fact—and unravels a startling mystery. In Atlantis: The Eighth Continent readers will find answers to many of their questions, such as:
• What message lies buried with the mighty stone structures deep beneath the Atlantic?
• What profound revelations about Atlantis have come to us from beyond Earth?
• Was Atlantis destroyed in an ancient nuclear war?
• What great centres of Atlantean culture yet await discovery?

New Orleans, a city of mystery and magic, of secrets and dreams, and a history drenched in both love and the deepest of heartache.
When ballet dancer Clara Campbell arrives in New Orleans, lonely and homesick, she is immediately captivated by the story of Windisle Plantation and the tragic tale that is said to have transpired beyond its gate. Legend has it that it is abandoned by all living souls, but to Clara’s great surprise, it is not a ghost she hears through the stone wall surrounding the property, but a flesh and blood man. A scarred stranger with a pain deeper and darker than the churning waters of the Mississippi river that flows beside his self-imposed prison.
The ruined man behind the wall hides himself from the world. The last thing he expects is to find a friend in the selfless girl who speaks to him through the cracks in the rock. The girl who keeps returning week after week. The girl who makes him wish for things he has long since given up on. The girl who strikes both fear and hope within his wounded heart. But there can be no future for them, no life beyond Windisle, for no one knows better than him that monsters only live in the dark.
The Bookstore at Holiday Bay: Once Upon a Mystery (affiliate link)
Cozy Animal Mystery
My name is Lou Prescott. I was born in South Carolina but spent most of my life in Northern Minnesota. Since the death of my husband, I’ve found myself at loose ends, so when my niece offered to sell me the quaint seaside bookstore she owned in Holiday Bay, Maine, I jumped at the opportunity to restart my life somewhere new.
My journey to date has been a bit rocky but my rescue cat Toby and I are making it work. The first thing we did after settling in was make a few additions to the bookstore including a coffee bar and pastry counter, as well as a cat lounge with a rescue and adoption feature. This allows Toby and I to match his buddies from the street with their perfect human.
So far, my favorite part of my new endeavor is a reader group who meets on Tuesday nights.The murder mystery book club started off as a typical read and discuss type forum but quickly segued into an actual mystery club when a member of our group was found dead.
