Murder in Disguise (A Preston Barclay Mystery Book 3)

by Donn Taylor

Official verdict: Suicide. But why would that vigorous department chairman kill himself? To avoid disgrace? Those rumored ventures on the dark side? Some other secret life? Visiting professor Preston Barclay wonders. But his questions bring no answers, only anonymous threats. He has enough problems already, proving himself on a strange campus while radical faculty do all they can to undermine him. Worse yet, that sexy siren assigned as his assistant complicates his courtship of the beautiful Mara Thorn.

While Press keeps asking questions, Mara’s research reveals a cancer of criminal activity that permeates the community and even the campus itself. The more Press questions, the more dangerous the threats against him become, and the more determined he grows to clear his friend’s name.

But can Press and Mara’s stumbling efforts prevail against the entrenched forces of the police, the campus radicals, and an unseen but powerful criminal organization that increasingly puts their lives in dangerâ?¦?

From Publishers Weekly

Two professors accused of murder on a Christian college campus must find the killer in a whodunit that plays to the beat of a unique soundtrack. The main character and narrator, Preston Barclay, suffers with musical hallucinations that started when his wife died and music passed from Faith’s soul into mine. Repeated references to specific music he’s hearing from his internal musicians distracts in this second novel from a war veteran with a Ph.D. in English literature. Barclay’s female colleague is Wiccan, hired as part of the university’s new policy of inclusion. Her blue gaze burns Preston, but their budding friendship intrigues. Suspended by the administration and suspected by police of killing a fellow professor, evidence mounts against the pair, even as they conduct a risky investigation of their own. While the style is usually witty and sensitive, puns and dialogue are overexplained, and prose tends toward the pedagogical. However, the ending has an unpredictable and satisfying twist, and both characters’ journey toward faith will resonate with Christian readers.

Written for the General Market (G) (I): Contains little or no; sexual dialogue or situations, violence, or strong language. May also contain some content of an inspirational/religious nature. Similar mystery novels in this genre may be categorized as: cozy mysteries, murder mysteries, women sleuths, and murder mystery romance.

Mary Magdaleneâ?¦Joseph of Arimatheaâ?¦Nicodemusâ?¦

Cardboard biblical characters or real-life, historical personalities who were fractured, human and hungry for an encounter with Christ just like you?

There’s more to the story than meets the eye!

Have you ever wondered what may have happened between Jesus and Mary Magdalene that made her his ultimate devotee in Scripture? What caused her to adore him so much that she attended his mother at the crucifixion, endured the terrifying night-sky and earthquake, and resisted her personal pain to help in the washing of Jesus’ unspeakable wounds?

What was it like to for her to have her dream and purpose die, be forced into a Sabbath (ar)rest, not knowing the next morning she would be a player in a story that would change the course of history?

What was it that made Joseph of Arimathea be willing to take down the body of the Jesus his peers had condemned to death, carry it to his newly mined tomb, then wash, wrap and lay it to rest on his own funeral slab?

Why did Nicodemus, the Pharisee or all Pharisees, lay down his reputation by bringing spices and join a Sadducee (Joseph) in cleansing the body of Christ? What exchange happened between them?

What did Mary see and experience when the stone was rolled away before dawn that terrifying Easter morning? And after such a jubilant announcement, what made her later return in tears and unbelief, looking for the body she had been told was resurrected?

Find out this and more in Encounters of the Heart; There’s More to the Story Than Meets the Eye!

It Could Happen Here

by Greg Watson

How many of our opinions are created for us? How easily can our beliefs be manipulated or marginalized? Is what we read online part of an online democracy where all beliefs are equal? Set in our world of social media, Internet comment boards, twenty-four hour news updates, and ubiquitous cell phones, It Could Happen Here explores possible answers to these questions. Along the way, the book explores institutional cover-up, violence against women, teen angst, and campus evangelism in a secular age. Most significantly, the novel is unabashedly preachy, and contains a thinly veiled missionary plot designed to influence the reader to embrace Christianity. You have been warned. Read it at your own risk!

The Lukin Longevity System: The Guide To Staying Younger, Longer

by Natasha Lukin

The Lukin Longevity System – Stay Younger, Longer

As the worldwide life expectancy increases and living to one hundred is no longer a rarity, there’s no better time than now to make sure you live the rest of your life to the full.

Author, scientist and health advocate Natasha Lukin has developed a system of beliefs, goals, actions and remedies that will help you achieve longevity and a life filled with good health and mental wellness.

Her unique system includes:

System of Beliefs

Lukin’s system shows you how to address personal issues based on your negative, limiting and self-harming beliefs around ageing. She will show you how to transform your thought processes to come to a realisation that this is the time to set goals and achieve them. This is particularly relevant if your preoccupation has been children, jobs and life. Banish those “senior moments” to the history books. Lukin’s personal investigations and scientific insight will show you how to keep your brain active and introduce you to effective ways to improve your memory’s capabilities, such as mnemonic training.

Lukin’s System of Goals

It’s time to turn dreams and desires into actual goals. Using the widely recognised S.M.A.R.T. formula, Lukin will walk you through how to choose, set up and implement factors into your life that will help you achieve your goals, whatever they are. Lukin also addresses when excuses, procrastination, disasters and calamities will hamper our goals but how these needn’t stop us from achieving them. She explores techniques to question your goals, addressing both your logic and subconscious.  

Lukin’s System of Actions

Is the secret to looking young a matter of needles and expensive creams? No. Lukin’s extensive research delves into her preferred ways to achieve a younger-looking you.

Lukin on exercise and weight-loss

As a former fitness studio owner, Lukin is also well-placed to share her knowledge about exercise and health and nutrition. The system focuses on eating high-quality foods in sensible quantities rather than strict, elimination diets.

Experienced in counselling and helping dieters achieve a healthy weight, Lukin does not apply a “one-size-fits-all” approach. Rather, she delves into the emotional and physical issues that being overweight can bring.

The Lukin System on sleep

The Lukin Longevity System also explores the scientific research behind the importance of getting enough sleep and allowing the body time to have a rest after seven hours of waking. Lack of sleep can have a huge impact on the ageing process.

Lukin’s at-home remedies for longevity

Lukin has studied and investigated various at-home remedies to assist one’s longevity. Her remedies include helping the knee joints, cleansing the brain vessels, curing coughs with chocolate, killing extra kilos, the “plant of eternal youth”, her unique remedy for lasting, younger-looking skin and the Lukin System 40-day body rejuvenation.

Procrastinate today – pay tomorrow

Procrastination not only stops us from getting results and ticking off a list, but it can lead to feelings of guilt, despair and depression. To tackle these, Lukin’s system adopts a method first developed by former US President, Dwight Eisenhower, allowing you to prioritise your day and remove stress.

Finally, the secrets to longevity revealed

Thanks to the increasing number of centenarians, research about longevity is growing. Lukin explores their secrets to achieving longevity and advises how you can adapt these findings – such as vitamins, lifestyle and outlook on life – into your life now.
