Genre: Suspense

Bunting Valley, North Dakota-a scenic and picturesque town where nothing dreadful ever happens-is a place where people feel safe leaving their front doors unlocked and their cars running in the driveways. So when beautiful, blue-eyed, three-year-old Maggie Taylor mysteriously vanishes, the Bunting Valley Police Department begins a kidnapping investigation that uncovers crimes spanning many years-not only in Bunting Valley, but also in surrounding states and jurisdictions.

Bea Miller is a penniless widow, living a meager existence among the town’s residents with her four young, rambunctious boys. Unable to have any more biological children, she is haunted by her wishes and dreams of having a little girl of her own. Bea takes matters into her own hands and follows the chilling advice of her estranged father, “If you want something, take it.”

Through the handwritten journals of Bea Miller, you will venture into the mind of an individual who believes you can make your own wishes come true-at any expense; and sadly, also at the expense of others.

Mystery – Is That Your Mother-In-Law Under The Bed?

Genre:

Edna Barnes and Edith Johnson are sisters and widows in their late fifties who enjoy quiet lives together in a double-wide mobile home in a pleasant mobile home park. Things are pretty peaceful for the pair—until Edna’s daughter Ellen shows up, suspicious that her husband of seven years, Roger, is cheating on her.

Edna and Edith jump into action to find out the truth about Roger and his supposed mistress. Edna uses common sense, while Edith relies on her son the police officer as an inside connection. What began as the case of a cheating husband, though, soon turns into the search for a murderer.

When greed, sex, and heartbreak get involved, anything can happen, and Edna and Edith know this all too well. Their initial investigations into Roger turn up evidence that could solve three cold cases—and they’re discovering that the adrenaline rush of solving crimes is much more enjoyable than daytime television, bingo, and quilting parties.

Suspense – Not My Mother’s Son

Not My Mother’s SonNot My Mothers Son
By R. K. Avery
Publisher: Brighton Publishing
ISBN: 978-1621830092
Published: November 2012
Pages: 216
Genre: Mystery, Suspense

Devious. Conniving. Deceitful. Insidious. David Miller thought he knew his mother. He thought kidnapping three children was the most appalling and horrendous thing any human being could do and she couldn’t possibly do anything more monstrous. He thought there was nothing else she could do or say that would surprise him. How wrong he was.

After Beatrice Miller, David’s serial-kidnapping mother, is sentenced to thirty years, David moves to Phoenix, Arizona; and with the help of a trust fund and an old friend, he starts the “Never Give Up” foundation, an organization dedicated to finding and returning exploited and missing children safely to their families. With all the wicked things his mother had done, David feels it is his unspoken duty to do something worthwhile.

Hesitant at first, but after reading his mother’s journal, David is determined to mend their dysfunctional relationship. Every time David visits Bea in prison, she seems deranged, insisting that people are trying to kill her. She ends each brief encounter with the chilling statement, “Remember David, things aren’t always what they seem.”

Mystery/Suspense – Mariachi Money

Mariachi Money
Author: Caleb H. Smith
Publisher: CreateSpace
ISBN: 978-1470164065
Pages: 394
Published: June 2012

MARIACHI MONEY weaves a tale of murder and deception in the unlikely business of mushroom farming. How are the Mexicans who work the farms amassing such a fortune? Cody Sargent is determined to find out and stay alive in the process.

When the Branch Manager of Winston & Company’s southeastern Pennsylvania office is killed in a freak accident, Cody Sargent is transferred from the New York office to replace him. Cody is reluctant to leave the excitement of Wall Street, but recognizes his new assignment is an opportunity to gain the management experience that will eventually bring him back to Manhattan with a higher position in the financial industry The job in Pennsylvania begins promisingly enough, but Cody soon realizes little is what he’s been led to believe it is. There is wide suspicion that the previous manager’s death may not have been an accident. The dead manager’s sister-in-law, Patsy Hamilton, is vehement that he was murdered. When Cody calls on the manager’s widow to pay his respects, Patsy accosts him and demands to know what he and his company are going to do about her brother-in-law’s murder. Cody learns the Securities and Exchange Commission is investigating retirement assets Winston & Co. holds for Mexican immigrants working at the local mushroom farms. These assets, in excess of a hundred million dollars, were under investigation by the former manager when he had his fatal accident. Winston & Co.’s New York office instructs Cody to continue this investigation. When Buck Camilla, the broker handling the Mexican workers’ accounts is killed during a botched home invasion, Cody realizes Patsy Hamilton is probably right about her brother-in-law’s accident being murder, and that now Cody himself may be a target for the killers.
