The year is 1947. The war is over, Jackie Robinson has just integrated baseball, and Frank Sinatra breezes in over the fuzzy airwaves. A sense of relief is finally sweeping the nation…everywhere except Tobaccoville, North Carolina.

Beyond the rural fields that are pregnant with decades of secrets, a mysterious Hollywood pin-up is jailed for murder while her facially birthmarked half-sister may hold the answers as to why.

The two girls, estranged for years, share a haunting past, a shell-shocked love interest, and maybe even a cruel destiny. Through mountains of lies, the truth that inevitably comes pouring out of the tobacco leaves will come to light. Will this light reveal the path to the siblings’ foreordained destruction, or their long-awaited deliverance? Will they realize they each hold the power to set the other free before it’s too late?

A story of heritage, hurt, and somehow, hope; Tobacco Sun keeps you on the edge of your seat while you find yourself rooting for redemption.

The USA Today Bestselling author delivers “a positive, make-your-own-destiny message: a pleasant, comforting read.” —Publishers Weekly.

Emily Ross attracts spirits and can sense people’s thoughts, but hides it from the world until she takes a job managing the curio shop owned by elderly occult scholar Henry Paradis. He urges Emily to embrace her magical nature, and to use divination to look forward. She sets out to create the path to happiness, guided by the famous “Fool’s Journey” described by the Tarot’s mystical Higher Arcane. When Emily meets international antiques dealer Tony Novak, who seems to adore her, she struggles to find the courage to trust him. Tony says that together, they can steer the future with their thoughts. Will Emily make her dreams come true?

Illustrated by images from the Payen Tarot of Marseilles (1713), which is the oldest surviving Tarot deck.

Coming of Age – Goodbye, Rudy Kazoody

Goodbye, Rudy KazoodyGoodbye, Rudy Kazoody
By A.A. Freda
Publisher: Friesen Press
Published: September 2016
ISBN: 978-1460292433
ASIN: B01M1SFHNA
Genre: Coming of Age
Formats Available For Review: pdf, epub

Who is the mysterious Rudy Kazoody, and what, if anything, did he have to do with the events that occurred to a group of teenagers during one fateful summer in New York City’s Bronx neighborhood in the early 1960s?

Growing up is difficult enough. But when you’re a recent immigrant arriving in a country that is going through its own coming-of-age process, fueled by rock ‘n’ roll, the Civil Rights movement, the Vietnam War, free love, the pill, LSD, and the Cold War, it’s downright confusing, and for some—lethal.

With the various upheavals shaking America to its core, Joey, whose family emigrated to the Bronx from Italy’s Apennine Mountains, struggles to retain his innocent, optimistic outlook on life as he and the other young teenagers on Arthur Avenue—virtually all of whom also come from immigrant, working-class families—try to find their place in this new order.

From the euphoria of first love to the despair of dashed dreams and betrayal, Joey emerges from the summer sadder but wiser in this romantic, mysterious, and nostalgic tale. Behind it all lurks the mysterious Rudy Kazoody, an enigma that Joey feels he must solve or else remain forever just outside the inner circle of life and love.

Young Adult – Muriel Avenue Sluts

Muriel Avenue SlutsMuriel Avenue Sluts
By Maggie Hasbrouck
Publisher: No Bones Studio Press
Published: January 2017
ASIN: B01MZ4Q5IA
Genre: Young Adult
Formats Available For Review: PDF epub and mobi

Seventeen-year-old Julia Turnbow’s mother gets paid to have sex; that’s just how it is. When Jules turns eighteen she‘ll follow in her mother’s footsteps and begin training to join the exclusive world of Philadelphia’s infamous Muriel Avenue Sluts. Anyway, that’s the plan.

But when Jules’s best friend Anna reveals that she’s being abused by one of Muriel Avenue’s gentleman clients, Jules’s world is knocked off its bearings. After a routine haircut and shave, Anna’s abuser falls to his death from a second-story balcony—and Jules is just one of two people who knows exactly what happened.

To complicate matters, Jules dives head first into a friendship with the daughter of the dead man. Greta’s a train wreck: she’s charming, unpredictable, and has one too many questions about Muriel Avenue. Then, Jules puts all of Muriel Avenue at risk with an ill-timed slip of the tongue and she finds herself wanted by the FBI. Running from everything she’s ever cared about, all Jules wants is to get back to the people she loves.

Complete with duct tape, wasp spray, and a healthy dose of sexual tension, MURIEL AVENUE SLUTS is a decidedly feminist coming-of-age story with a dark edge and plenty of heart. #stopslutshaming

Jordan Fineman’s second year of college has almost done him in.  His solution is to head off for a summer of work and adventure in Alaska.  All the while mental illness is setting in.  A summer to remember.  A tale to grow on.

This novel is a quick read, told in a conversational first person voice, that is quick to see the humor of the circumstances.  In the end it has something positive to say about the most stigmatized, most human of conditions, mental illness.
