As Kalen deteriorates, Jessa, his obsessed little sister, starts setting fires, each one more ferocious and nearer to the home where her older brother lays suffering. Emmy Fane, Kalen’s girlfriend, can’t allow Jessa to kill Kalen, but she can’t bear for a declining Kalen to endlessly anguish. Struggling with her choices, Emma encounters Lilly, the Machrae family banshee and phantom spirit of the bridge.

About Just Add Glitter by Angela DiTerlizzi:

Has the rainy day got you down?
Not feeling fancy in your gown?

Just add glitter!

It all starts with a mysterious mail delivery, a little girl with a big imagination, and a sprinkling of twinkling glitter. Before long there’s glitter here, glitter there—glitter, glitter EVERYWHERE! But just when she’s about to add more glitter, the little girl realizes maybe there is such a thing as too much bling when you and your best pal start to get lost in it…

It’s time to create a purposeful and fulfilling second half of your life. Retire Early: What Are You Waiting For? includes, tips, tricks, and techniques to help you retire when you want.

About Heart on Wheels by Pat Jobe:

The book you are holding is the result of an extraordinary exchange of love. It often showed up as hilarious laughter, enormous tomfoolery, good times, practical jokes, furious frustration expressed at outcomes of sporting events, and other events and noises that some people might misinterpret as not being very loving. It was all love: a love for life, a love for winning, a love for other people. Frieda Sellers said so well, “He had an infinite capacity for love.” But it is not just the love that Tommy Hicks gave to so many who crossed his path. He inspired so many to love him, to be inspired by him, to put aside their own petty complaints and do their best in the face of life’s frustrations.

It worked.

Cather Stevens thwarted the curse of star-crossed love that has plagued the women in her family for centuries. All it took was a marriage to Peter Ganis, the last living descendant of Pyramus’s bloodline, whose sway over her grows stronger with each passing day. The pieces of Thisbe’s soul are still out there, though. To erase the curse, Cather must travel to Greece’s most mythological places and track each one down with the help of her husband and Hermes, the Book Keeper and Messenger of the gods, who still holds a piece of her heart that neither is willing to give up.

But when an unexpected tragedy befalls Peter, Cather is forced to put her trust in none other than Hades, god of the Underworld and Zeus’s biggest rival. With magical assassins on their tail and danger lurking around every corner, they must work together to reunite the soul pieces before Ares, god of War, who was sent to Earth to stop them, destroys them and dooms Cather, her family, and both the men she loves forever.
