Cranberry Bluff

By Deborah Garner

Molly Elliott’s quiet life in Tallahassee, Florida, is disrupted when routine errands land her in the wrong place at the wrong time: the middle of a bank robbery. Accused and cleared of the crime, she flees both media attention and mysterious, threatening notes, to move across the country to Cranberry Cove, where she has inherited her Aunt Maggie’s bed and breakfast on the Northern California coast. Her new beginning is peaceful – that is, until five guests show up at the inn for a weekend, each with a hidden agenda.

Mix together one blushing honeymoon couple, one flamboyant boutique owner, a deadpan traveling salesman, and a charmingly handsome novelist, and there’s more than scones cooking at Cranberry Cottage Bed and Breakfast. As true motives become apparent, will Molly’s past come back to haunt her or will she finally be able to leave it behind?

About the Author

Vicky Kaseorg, describes when she first knew she would become an author: “I used to ride my horse through the neighborhood, though all the neighbors could see was a girl on a blue bicycle. My brain rarely paused in the internal narration of stories. I should have known I would either end up in an institution, or become a writer.”

Kaseorg, born in Pennsylvania in 1956, studied art and writing at Binghamton University, and became a professional artist early in her career. She went on to graduate school at USC Los Angeles where she studied Occupational Therapy. She owned her own Occupational Therapy practice for many years in NY, and with the birth of her prodigiously gifted first son, began homeschooling. She has bicycled across the USA, run a marathon, completed a biathlon, learned to ski at age 50, successfully graduated all three children from homeschool to prestigious universities, yet still feels the most difficult task she has ever had to accomplish “is living a consistent, righteous life before God and my family.”

The Cemetery Club

(Darcy & Flora Cozy Mystery Book 1)

By Blanche Day Manos and Barbara Burgess

Goshen Cemetery lay quiet and peaceful under a benevolent spring sky. Darcy Campbell and her mother, Flora Tucker, had no inkling that in a few moments, the scene would change and they would face a horror on the ground and a threat from above, beyond their imaginations.

Becoming entangled in a centuries-old legend, being targeted by a group of ruthless men, and discovering a long-lost love were not in Darcy’s plans when she returned to her birth place, Levi, Oklahoma. She merely wanted to soak up the peace of her mother’s home and try to heal the wounds left from her husband’s death. Fate, however, had other plans for Darcy and Flora.
