Texas Two Step (Whispering Springs, TX Book 1)

by Cynthia D’Alba

Secrets are little time-bombs just waiting to explode.

After six years and too much self-recrimination, rancher Mitch Landry is ready to admit he was wrong. He’d been in love with Olivia Montgomery but he hadn’t been ready for the lifetime commitment. That was his first mistake. He’s divorced his second. He’ll not make the same mistake twice and he’ll do whatever it take to convince Olivia to give them a second chance.

Through hard work, determination and more than a few tears, Olivia Montgomery survived the break-up with the love of her life. She’s rebuilt her life around her business and the son she loves more than life itself. She’s not proud of the mistakes she’s madeâ??particularly the secret she’s keptâ??but when life serves up manure, you use it to mold yourself into something better.

At a hot, muggy Dallas wedding, they reconnect. Olivia’s first instinct is to play it cool, but after one devastating kiss things quickly flare out of control. A quick night together should dampen those flames but instead only feeds the fires burning and now she’s left trying to protect the secret she’s held on to for all these years.

Natalie DeMarco is a good cop with one problem. Cold feet. Her fiancé is a decent man, but she’s starting to wonder if decent is good enough. Maybe the doubts could be blamed on Giovanni, that guitar-making Italian hunk next door.

The Kennedy Chronicles: Losing Rylie

by Clarissa Lee-Kennerly

This is one Christian novel that should be on your reading list…

“Through heartwarming and heartbreaking moments, Kennedy’s struggle in being a minority, a Christian, and a teenage girl were not only relatable, but real life issues. Losing Rylie, put me through a myriad of emotions. I laughed, blushed, cried, and got angry right along with Kennedy. I felt what she felt and her experiences turned into mine as well. As a Christian teenager in modern America, I understand how easy it can be to slip away from God and into the world. Losing Rylie presented Kennedy to me as not only a role model, but also as an example of how to come to God with all of my issues and struggles, especially when times get tough.” – Madison K. – age 17; James Wood High School.

“The Kennedy Chronicles: Losing Rylie is a riveting, inspirational, and most of all, relatable novel. As a biracial young adult, the main character of the book, Kennedy, reminds me of myself. It is modern and refreshing to read, especially as a Christian. The author did a great job of tying together all of the elements of being a young teenager going through life. Young women of all cultures will definitely not only enjoy and relate to this book, but will learn how to depend on God in the toughest of situations.” – Dariona Lewis, 18; student at Lord Fairfax Community College.

“Kennerly takes us through the ups and downs in the life of Kennedy, a student trying to find herself after experiencing a double tragedy that tests her entire being. Losing Rylie is a modern coming of age tale of loss and discovery, a story for those seeking hope, faith, family, and self.” – Val Muller, author of The Scarred Letter and the Corgi Capers mystery series.

“Losing Rylie helps teenagers navigate the complex and emotional challenges of living life after the death of a loved one. The loss of Rylie changes her family, but faith, grace and new beginnings revitalize their broken and wounded hearts. My 17 year old daughter could not put this book down, she was moved, encouraged and her faith in Jesus Christ was strengthened. She has already recommended it to my 14 year old daughter and I approve!” – Mark David, Pastor, Impact Christian Church, 134 N. Loudoun Street, Winchester, VA 22601.

“In one fell swoop author Clarissa Lee-Kennerly in her young adult novel, Losing Rylie, has managed to blend sensitivity, spirituality and realism into a well told tale to which teenagers will relate and understand. Life for young, 14 year old Kennedy will never be the same after a car crash kills her younger sister, Rylie, and causes her mother to withdraw from life. Kennedy and her twin, KJ along with their Dad, must learn to cope with the upheaval of their lives. Clarissa Kennerly paints a poignant picture of a family trying to understand and digest tragedy. Teenagers in our world today face many challenges that question their faith, love of their family and the unpredictability of the world in which they live. Mrs. Kennerly has taken a tragedy and woven it into the thoughts and dreams of her young protagonist trying to find a way out of the abyss that has been created. Through Kennedy’s trials and tribulations, young readers will be able to explore their own feelings and questions about love, faith and endurance.
Kudos to Clarissa Kennerly for a job well done, and her next book in the trilogy can’t come soon enough!” – Tara M. Johnson; Assistant Principal of English (retired), August Martin High School, New York City Department of Education.

Clarissa Lee-Kennerly knew at an early age that God called her to write. Compelled to write more personal non-fiction novels like “My Husband’s Not Saved” which was published in 2008, and having worked with teenagers all of her career, she was inspired to write a contemporary novel that teens today can relate to and still experience God’s love. She resides in Virginia with her husband and two children.

J.J. Houston: Murder on Moon Street

by B.K. Crawford

2016 Nominee for Summer Indie Awards

“Mystery, suspense, humor, but most of all, a heart-thumping adventure that transports the reader back to the child in all of us. Anyone who dreams of living life as an adventurer should feel right at home with J.J. Houston.” -Amanda Cummins, Managing Editor at Mind Key Publishing

2016 Nominee for Summer Indie Awards.

At twelve, I ain’t old enough to be a bona fide archaeologist or a detective. Maybe I don’t have a college degree yet, or even a high-school diploma for that matter, but I ain’t no sissy girl. You best have your canteens and field bags packed properly if you want to hang around with J.J. Houston. When I dig, I generally end up in dangerous places and I sure as spit don’t do it wearing shiny shoes with polished buckles.

Have you ever wished you could step back in time to visit a more electric era? Set in 1963, Murder on Moon Street will whisk you back through the annals of history to a time when the American nation exploded with political and cultural change. Life is simple for J.J. Houston, tucked away on her beloved country road and surrounded by farmland as far as the eye can see. Her life is uncomplicated and rooted in naïveté, until the day she and her cousin discover a dusty skeleton pinned to a cement wall, hanging in chains. It’s a revelation that will turn her world upside down.

J.J.’s father is a strict disciplinarian, her eccentric Grandmother seems to have lost her last marble, and her best friend, Bo, is selfish beyond measure. As the last of six children still living at home, J.J. faces her challenges using the resilience of rebellion and her keen intuition for guidance.

Some say curiosity kills the cat. But, when authorities take no interest in what J.J. knows to be a very serious case, she has no choice but to ignore convention and push ahead. She will ultimately find herself being pursued by a dreadful man whom she suspects is involved in the deaths of several local children.

Mystery, wit, suspense, and adventure collide in this fast-paced rural tale filled to the brim with mayhem and intrigue.
