Bake, Battle & Roll (Lexy Baker Cozy Mystery Series Book 6)

by Leighann Dobbs

When Lexy Baker temporarily fills in for the pastry chef at a lakeside resort it seems like a great way to combine business and pleasure.

… until the head chef ends up with a knife through his chest and Lexy is found bending over the body.

Suddenly, she finds herself in a race against time and battling a quirky dessert devouring detective to find the real killer in a long line of suspects.

Was it the extravagant spouse? The suspiciously acting sous-chef? The mysterious motorcycle gang?

Luckily Lexy’s iPad toting grandma and three octogenarian friends have turned their cottage into a crime lab in order to help her sift through the sea of suspects.

Will Lexy be able to find the real killer and clear her name or will she find that she’s up the creek without a paddle?

The Closing (Whippoorwill Hollow Book 1)

by Ken Oder

2014 Foreword Reviews INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards Finalist

When two men meet in a maximum security visitation room on May 5, 1968, they have only one thing in common: they both want their lives back. On one side of the window sits Kenneth Deatherage, sentenced to death for the brutal rape and murder of a young woman. On the other side is Nate Abbitt, a successful prosecutor until he drank his way through a midlife crisis.

Nate’s only path to redemption is to represent Deatherage on appeal, but his investigation soon uncovers hints of corruption in the county justice system, and Nate finds himself accused of murder by the same forces that convicted his client. As Nate risks his life – and several others – in the fight to clear his name, he makes the nasty discovery that he and his client have much more in common than he’d like to admit.

Ë?Ë?Ë? Intelligent, atmospheric, achingly romantic legal thriller

“Ken Oder debuts with an intelligent, atmospheric, and achingly romantic legal thriller. I loved this book, and I can’t wait for the next one.” â?? Pamela Fagan Hutchins, USA Best Book Award-winning author of theWhat Doesn’t Kill You romantic mystery series

Ë?Ë?Ë? Intriguing legal thriller, strong historical fiction

“. . . an intriguing legal thriller that looks deeply at corruption in the jurisprudence system. The recovering alcoholic protagonist is a fascinating lead as he begins to regain his lost life when he accepts the harm he committed to innocent people, his wife, his mother, his mentor and himself. . . . the enjoyable storyline spins from a superb capital case to a more conventional David vs. Goliath thriller. Fans will appreciate Ken Oder’s strong historical fiction. ” â??THE MYSTERY GAZETTE

Ë?Ë?Ë? Timely and compelling

“Moments after meeting his client, death-row inmate Kenneth Deatherage, attorney Nate Abbitt explains: Cases are pending before the United States Supreme Court challenging the constitutionality of the death penalty. There’s a nationwide moratorium on executions until the court rules. Ironically, just days after The Closing became available on Amazon, Oklahoma botched the execution of Clayton Lockett, who according to eye-witness accounts, tried to get up and speak after being given the supposedly lethal injection. Although this book is set in 1968 Virginia, the subject matter could hardly be more topical. . . . This is a great summer read. You won’t be able to put it down. And whatever side of the issue you are on, The Closing should inform your view about capital punishment.” â?? Marlene Munoz, Amazon reviewer

by Jennifer Anne Davis

A medieval fantasy filled with adventure, intrigue, and romance from The True Reign series author Jennifer Anne Davis. This new series is perfect for fans of Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes, The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson, and Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas.

Sixteen-year-old Allyssa appears to be the ideal princess of Emperion–she’s beautiful, elegant, and refined. She spends her days locked in a suffocating cage, otherwise known as the royal court. But at night, Allyssa uses her secret persona–that of a vigilante–to hunt down criminals and help her people firsthand. 
Unfortunately, her nightly escapades will have to wait because the citizens of Emperion may need saving from something much bigger than common criminals. War is encroaching on their kingdom and in order to protect her people, Allyssa may have to sacrifice her heart. Forced to entertain an alliance through marriage with a handsome prince from a neighboring kingdom, she finds herself feeling even more stifled than before. To make matters worse, the prince has stuck his nosy squire, Jarvik, to watch her every move.

Jarvik is infuriating, bossy and unfortunately, the only person she can turn to when she unveils a heinous plot. Together, the unlikely pair will have to work together to stop an enemy that everyone thought was long gone, one with the power to destroy her family and the people of Emperion. Now the cage Allyssa so longed to break free from might just be the one thing she has to fight to keep intact. In order to save her kingdom, she will have to sacrifice her freedom, her heart, and maybe even her life.

Miles from the nearest town, nestled far out in the English countryside, it’s the perfect place for visitors who want to get away from the world for a while. And then one morning the cottage’s latest tenant, Deborah Dean, is found brutally murdered.

After several months of police inactivity, the cottage’s owner Lord Martin Chesleford decides to take matters into his own hands. Hiring former police officer Joanna Mason, who now works alone as a private investigator, he demands that Deborah’s murderer is brought to justice.

But while Deborah had tried to isolate herself at Skellin Cottage, she’d already begun to attract attention. Terrified of her own past, Deborah lived a life of fear, desperately afraid that the truth would one day be revealed. And as the ongoing investigation uncovers old secrets and new rivalries, another murder is right around the corner.
