Mystery Thriller

Two women have disappeared. Were they kidnapped? Did they run away? Or was it something worse?

In this heart-pounding thriller, a pair of sisters vanish only weeks apart, thrusting Connor Callahan into a high-stakes investigation to locate the missing women. This is not a job for one man alone, though. And as every move propels him deeper into the murky waters of a conspiracy where nobody can be trusted, he realizes that even with the help of his friends, Olin and Dylan, he may not be able to solve this mystery.

It’s an unsettling truth that grows even more grim when a body is found alongside a lake and his quest for answers turns him into the prime suspect in the victim’s murder.

If there is any hope to be found, it comes when Connor realizes these crimes are linked by a haunting secret. But as the clock ticks, he is forced to confront the stark choice that link presents: unravel the truth before another life is claimed or face the reality of life behind bars.

Romantic Comedy

How many frogs does a woman have to kiss before she finds the right one?
When Vivian left town for a three-month residency, she had no idea that she’d come back to find her life turned upside down. The casual boyfriend who’d seemed ready to commit? Changed his mind. The job she’d loved so much? Gone. The parents she’d assumed would be there for emotional support? Off on the adventure of their lives.

When she realizes that she’s essentially homeless, jobless and boyfriend-less, Vivian knows something has to change. She needs to take charge. Inspired by her aunt’s idea that a girl has to kiss at least fifty frogs to find her prince, Vivian comes up with a plan: she’s going to go on a series of first dates only, and each one must end in a kiss.

She’ll chronicle each date–the good, the bad and the downright unbelievable–and turn the stories into an in-depth magazine series about the realities of dating in the twenty-first century. While none of the frogs she meets–and kisses–make her heart leap, there’s a guy closer to home who definitely does . . . and despite the fact that Charlie always seems to catch Vivian at her most awkward and embarrassing moments, she can’t help wondering if it’s time to ditch the plan . . . and kiss just one more frog.

Vegan Indian Cooking

The EASIEST Indian Vegan Recipe Book To Follow *For ABSOLUTE Beginners*
Hi, I’m Neelam, the author of Veganbell’s Indian Vegan Cookbook. I published this book with 3 things in mind.

It has to include all the mainstream Indian dishes: From Garlic Naan to Pyaaz Pakoda, from Aloo Gobi to Gulab Jamun, I have tried my best to include a diverse array of veganized Indian recipes ranging from grains, dals, curries, breads, desserts, soups, and more!

The recipes should be easy to follow: Indian cooking isn’t exactly ‘set and forget’. You need to be very present during the cooking process. This is why I have divided most recipes into steps and substeps so you can follow them with ease. The fonts are bold, large, and legible.

It needs to be informative: I have fortified the book with a ton of helpful tips, kitchen recommendations, beautiful images, and nutritional charts.

If you liked what you read, please consider ordering a copy. This cookbook also makes an excellent birthday/gift idea for your loved ones.

All’s fair in love and war…until you set up the man you love with another woman.

The realization that you’ve fallen for your best friend is, for me, pretty scary.

It’s not that Reid is all the way in the stratosphere out of my league, it’s more like I want to get it together so I’m not the one who feels so inadequate.

But when I take ten steps forward, I’m shoved twenty steps back and left wondering if we’d be a good match in the end. And I want the best for my friend…even if that means it’s not me.

Yet the thought of him with anyone else makes me crazy and I want to run screaming into the Blue Ridge Mountains. The thing is, if I don’t get over myself I’m probably going to not only lose my best friend, but my chance at true love…

Traditional Detective Mysteries

Fourteen impossible crimes from the American masters of the form

For devotees of the Golden Age mystery, the impossible crime story represents the period’s purest form: it presents the reader with a baffling scenario (a corpse discovered in a windowless room locked from the inside, perhaps), lays out a set of increasingly confounding clues, and swiftly delivers an ingenious and satisfying solution. During the years between the two world wars, the best writers in the genre strove to outdo one another with unfathomable crime scenes and brilliant explanations, and the puzzling and clever tales they produced in those brief decades remain unmatched to this day.

Among the Americans, some of these authors are still household names, inextricably linked to the locked room mysteries they devised: John Dickson Carr, Ellery Queen, Clayton Rawson, Stuart Palmer. Others, associated with different styles of crime fiction, also produced great works—authors including Fredric Brown, MacKinlay Kantor, Craig Rice, and Cornell Woolrich.

Political Thrillers

The death of a diplomat leads two DC cops into an absorbing puzzle.

British Ambassador to the US Geoffrey James is a shady sort, prone to womanizing and taking financial advantage of his contacts. When he drops dead at his own gala party, everyone suspects the ambassador’s Iranian valet, Nuri Hafez—who has conveniently disappeared. But Washington Metro’s Cpt. Sal Morizio and his fellow officer, Connie Lake, are convinced there’s something far more sinister going on.

The Associated Press raved that Murder on Embassy Row moved Margaret Truman, daughter of President Harry Truman, into “the international spy genre . . . and she’s good.” This engrossing and exotic tale of mystery suspense will keep readers guessing as they enjoy a look inside the world of politics, diplomacy, and espionage.
