Anxiety-ridden protagonist Saylor Crawmore tries every cure from self-help books and therapy to medication. Nothing has worked. Desperate for an answer, she must also navigate the ongoing rip current between the troubled generations of her family.

Then Saylor discovers her childhood friend, Billy, living under a pier in Malibu. Homeless and ignored since his teens by a celebrity father and an eternally-absent mother, the odd, intuitive Billy sparks Saylor s journey to gain insight into her strange fears. In turn, she is able to summon the courage to help both herself and her family.

A poignant novel that won the 2013 Jack Eadon Award for the Best Book in Contemporary Drama, Second Place for General Fiction for the 2013 Readers Choice Awards, and Runner-Up for 2013 General Fiction with the Great Northwest Book Festival, The Grace of Crows was also listed in the prestigious Santa Barbara Magazine s Hot List Arts Scene Winter Issue 2014.

Contemporary Women’s Fiction – Hello, Agnieszka!

Hello AgnieszkaHello, Agnieszka!
By E. Journey
ASIN: B00L5IHKZ4
Published: June 2014
Genre: Contemporary Women’s Fiction/Romance
Formats available for review: pdf, mobi, kindle, epub

A son s attempted suicide shocks his family, uncovering a lifelong secret and the mother s tale of early love, rivalry, and betrayal.

Although years have whittled away at the weight of the secret and nearly buried it, the tragic attempt gives it new meaning and compels the mother to tell her children of her past.

Determined to give her family as normal a life as possible, she devotes her life to them. Her children find her caring and solicitous as a parent, but bland as a person, who has limited her interests to her family. Now, she must bare her inner soul to them.

As a young woman, she suffers from her knotty relationships with her own mother and her aunt, but her passion for the piano saves her from the ravages of a repressed childhood and shattered dreams.

Her children learn about a consuming first love at the root of her secrets a love that suffers a sad ending, but gives her strength to move on. She grows into someone comfortable enough with herself to look forward to the future.

Fortuitous encounters at a concert hall and at a music store present her a second chance at happiness with the man she eventually spends her life with. That man is their father. But does she ever forget that compelling first love?

The mother s story uncloaks for her children, someone they never expected, one whose sensitive and courageous spirit touches them deeply. Her daughter, in particular, marvels at her mother s courage and generosity of heart. To her surprise, she finds she and her mother have similar experiences, and though they responded differently to them, their differences are not fundamental; rather, they have more to do with the times in which they grew up.

Hello, Agnieszka! is a sequel/prequel hybrid to the novel, Hello, My Love! and takes place largely in the late 60s to mid-70s. It portrays the complex relationships between a mother (as well as a surrogate mother) and a daughter as the latter falls in love and matures. It also touches on the plight of an immigrant family and issues of cultural and religious differences and racial prejudice.

Women’s Fiction/Southern Humor – Suicide Supper Club

Suicide Supper ClubSuicide Supper Club
By Rhett Devane
ISBN: 978-0615863306
ASIN:
Pages: 242
Genre: Women’s Fiction, Southern Humor
Formats available for review: pdf, kindle, print (only for qualified reviewers/bloggers and only within continental USA)

In the Deep South, the grinding summer heat is enough to make people stupid. Four small town Southern women—each with distinct reasons to consider her life total crap—band together to forge “the easy way out.” But life has a way of turning out opposite of misdirected plans.

Abby has no husband, no children, no living kin, and a painful family secret. Loiscell is a two-time breast cancer survivor facing recurrence with dwindling faith and courage. Sheila is a meek abused wife hiding behind a religious, volunteer-queen veneer. Estranged from her only child, Caroline “Choo-choo” Ivey desperately misses her late husband.

As the relentless summer heat continues, conditions deteriorate for the women. Initially in jest, they propose group suicide: a nice meal, followed by a quick death courtesy of a paid assassin. Choo-choo offers to pay, and Sheila figures a way to enlist her husband to acquire a contact name. Then plans go haywire.

The Suicide Supper Club was a finalist in the 2012 Florida Writers Association RPLA contest. The Suicide Supper Club tackles tough subjects—abuse, cancer, aging—but with humor. In the South, humor is as essential as breathing and often filters life’s harsh realities.
