Okay so I didn’t promise to stay away from Netgalley or Edelweiss, but I said I would try…lol. It just didn’t work.
So here is what I picked up from Netgalley:
Maisie Danger Brown just wanted to get away from home for a bit, see something new. She never intended to fall in love. And she never imagined stumbling into a frightening plot that kills her friends and just might kill her, too. A plot that is already changing life on Earth as we know it. There’s no going back. She is the only thing standing between danger and annihilation.
Someone’s murdered Brayton Spites!
Nobody’s sorry he’s dead-with one exception. A ruthless, unscrupulous businessman, notorious womanizer, and heartless father, he turned his back on his only legitimate son after the boy’s grandfather abused him. So when Spites’s body is found in a dark alley in Coyote Springs, the question is not who killed him, but what took so long?
Jason Crow, rancher, vintner, and double amputee, is invited to help find his biological father’s murderer. He has no idea just how personal the quest is about to become. The list of suspects includes his half-brothers, Harden Spites and Kelvin Dodge, as well as Brayton’s alcoholic widow, Dolly Dodge. Then there’s Neldona Chance, a prostitute with a heart of gold, who shared a complex relationship with Brayton, Harden, and Kelvin.
Bodies pile up. Family tensions rise. Tempers reach the breaking point when the sheriff comes to arrest Jason’s grieving and emotionally fragile mother for the murder of the profligate man she never stopped loving.
ONE FLEW OVER THE CROW’S NEST is the third in Ken Casper’s West Texas Mystery Series, giving readers still another glimpse into the world of one of mystery’s most intriguing and unique crime solvers.
(sounds interesting and I hope not having read the first two I won’t be confused. I need to pay more attention to if they are sequels or not!)
Here is what I got from Edelweiss:
Her parents dead, Maddy is sick of living in Ireland, sick of Blarney and sick of her cousin Danny, one of the nastiest people you could meet this side of an Asbo. Mad as hell one evening, she crawls inside the grounds of the castle, the one place she has always been forbidden to go. Once inside, she is chased by a strange feral boy, who she suspects is one of the faerie: cruel, fantastical people who live among humans and exchange local children for their own.
When the boy returns to steal her neighbour Stephen into his world, Maddy and her cousins set off on a terrifying journey into a magical wilderness, determined to bring him back home. To do so, they must face an evil as old as the earth itself.
From Ilsa J. Bick-the critically acclaimed author of The Ashes Trilogy-comes the first title in a two-book, young adult series about blurred reality in the tradition of Memento and Inception, where characters in a story find that a deadly and horrifying world exists in the space between the written lines.
A new novel from Ilsa J. Bick, the critically acclaimed author of The Ashes trilogy, combines elements of thriller, horror, and speculative fiction into a heart-racing story that will leave readers eager to turn the page.
(They sure don’t want you to know much about this book..has me curious.)
A flash of white light . . . and then . . . nothing.
When sixteen-year-old Kyra Agnew wakes up behind a Dumpster at the Gas ’n’ Sip, she has no memory of how she got there. With a terrible headache and a major case of déjà vu, she heads home only to discover that five years have passed . . . yet she hasn’t aged a day.
Everything else about Kyra’s old life is different. Her parents are divorced, her boyfriend, Austin, is in college and dating her best friend, and her dad has changed from an uptight neat-freak to a drunken conspiracy theorist who blames her five-year disappearance on little green men.
Confused and lost, Kyra isn’t sure how to move forward unless she uncovers the truth. With Austin gone, she turns to Tyler, Austin’s annoying kid brother, who is now seventeen and who she has a sudden undeniable attraction to. As Tyler and Kyra retrace her steps from the fateful night of her disappearance, they discover strange phenomena that no one can explain, and they begin to wonder if Kyra’s father is not as crazy as he seems. There are others like her who have been taken . . . and returned. Kyra races to find an explanation and reclaim the life she once had, but what if the life she wants back is not her own?
