Here’s the set-up:

California Schemin’ is the second in the fun, fast paced Bree MacGowan Mysteries. Think Miss Marple meets Miss Congeniality! Being a self-sufficient, problem solving Vermont girl, Bree’s used to taking care of her own problems. Just because some Ex-Army Ranger has gotten her mixed up in murder doesn’t mean she’s obligated to behave herself. Bree figures it’s her job to get as far away from Mr. Hambecker as possible, turn in the murderer and reclaim her boyfriend and her life. But the murderer isn’t going to be easy to catch, her life is in a shambles and the boyfriend isn’t sure he want’s to be reclaimed. It’s mystery with a side of laughter.

Kate George is the winner of the 2009 Daphne De Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery and Suspense, Mainstream Division.

Here’s the set-up:
“A twisting, intense psychological thriller.”–Bestselling author Scott Nicholson, Liquid Fear
Even a genius can be played for a pawn by a cunning and deadly manipulator. Lauren James is a former psychiatrist, still reeling from her husband’s suicide and the subsequent miscarriage that swept away her tidy life the year before. On the anniversary of his death, she opens what she hopes to be a “Welcome to Mensa” envelope and pulls out a threatening puzzle along with the identical suicide note she had burned the previous year. Unraveling the twisted clues, Lauren embarks on a harrowing journey drawn in by a child’s neglected grave, a professor from the island of St. Croix, and a U.S. Supreme Court nominee. When Lauren discovers the reason behind her husband’s shocking death, she must struggle with her deepest convictions and whether killing is acceptable if it saves more lives.

If you enjoy military sci-fi, mystery thrillers, or political novels this is the book for you.
Amazon Reviewer slapjack 1972
Here's the set-up:
Jake Bronson returns in Book II of the acclaimed thriller/adventure series by bestselling author, Richard Bard. Former combat pilot Jake Bronson believed the worst was behind him. But when a sophisticated terrorist cell shows up in his home town, he's drawn into a conflict that threatens the heart and soul of every mother in America. The bonds of love and loyalty are tested as Jake and his friends are swept into a deadly chase that takes them from the beaches of California, to the depths of the world's longest underground river, and finally to the remote jungles of the Venezuelan rain forest—where Jake discovers that it will take far more than his enhanced abilities to prevent what is coming.
One Reviewer Notes:
Brainrush II picks up several months after the events of the first novel. Jake Bronson still has the super brain he picked up during an MRI accident. It is still capable of speed reading, super speed, mathematical genius, telekinesis, limited telepathy, and total genius. He is settled down to a normal life with the love of his wife Francesca and their adopted daughter Sarafina. Of course, for Jake and his friends, a normal life is being on guard at all times against the brain implanted jihaadists while waiting for the doomsday event that Jake accidentally triggered the first go around. ... He imbues them [his characters] with personality, smarts, and humor, and then spends the rest of the novel putting them in scene after scene after scene of high octane peril that forces us to root for them. All the while he has several larger specters hovering in the wings...it's not enough that they must save themselves and their families, this cast is tasked with saving the entire world. It is like a serial adventure, an Indiana Jones film, where each time you catch your breath another twist is presented, our heroes are endangered and you force yourself to read just a little bit further to find out what happens next.

Kindle Nation Daily Bargain Book Alert: Rebecca Forster’s HOSTILE WITNESS is Our eBook of the Day and is FREE (Just for Today) with 4.3 Stars on 104 Reviews!

Here’s the set-up for Rebecca Forster’s Hostile Witness, FREE (for now) on Kindle:

When sixteen-year-old Hannah Sheraton is arrested for the murder of her stepgrandfather, the chief justice of the California Supreme court, her distraught mother turns to her old college roommate, Josie Baylor-Bates, for help.

Josie, once a hot-shot criminal defense attorney, left the fast track behind for a small practice in Hermosa Beach, California. But Hannah Sheraton intrigues her and, when the girl is charged as an adult, Josie cannot turn her back.

But the deeper she digs the more Josie realizes that politics, the law and family relationships create a combustible and dangerous situation. When the horrible truth is uncovered it can save Hannah Sheraton or destroy them both.

A note from the author:

“This story was inspired by a case my husband handled. As a superior court judge he had to sentence a minor to life in prison. It made me wonder how I felt about minors arrested for violent crimes. Are they most vulnerable among us – capable or horrible violence, perceived as adults and yet emotionally still children?” –  Rebecca Forster (rebeccaforster.com)

From the reviewers:

An enthralling read, with colorful, well-developed characters and the unique atmosphere of the California beach communities. –  Nancy Taylor Rosenberg

Blending complex psychological character portraits with spot-on accurage courtroom drmaa, Forster’s riveting legal thriller keeps the plot twists coming until the last, satisfying page. – Alafair Burke

I haven’t read many legal thrillers in the past few years, but I think I am going to have to add more books of this genre to my future reading list – especially those written by Rebecca Forster. Hostile Witness is just a fantastic, completely absorbing read. –  Daniel Jolley

Hostile Witness is an excellent start of an interesting new series. The pace was brisk and readable. The story sucks you in immediately, and the ending is full of thrills and surprises.  –  Bob A. Reiss

I marketed a world-class spa when it was still called a gym and did business in China before there were western toilettes at the Great Wall. Then I wrote a book on a crazy dare and found my passion.

Now, I am a USA Today best selling author with more than 20 books to my name – and if you ask me where all those words came from I’d be hard pressed to tell you. All I know is that I wake up with a story in my head and go to bed the same way.

My specialty is legal thrillers and The Witness Series, featuring my beach-rat, volleyball playing attorney Josie Bates and her teenage ward Hannah, have really captured readers’ imaginations. But I also like to stretch the thirller genre a bit. Before Her Eyes, for instance, has a fantasy overlay on a murder mystery that I really found intriguing. Wilde’s Gamble is a romantic suspense.

I teach at UCLA Writers Program and work with The Young Writers Conference, a program that helps motivate middle school children to explore the power of words. I think I am particularly drawn to kids and writing because both my sons have always had a passion for it. Eric is a playwright and Alex is in film.

When I’m not writing I’m traveling, on a tennis court, working a sewing machine or reading. Thank you so much for taking a look at my author page. You can find out more about me, my travels and my work-in-progress at www.rebeccaforster.com

CLOCKWISE

Here’s the set-up:

 A teenage time traveler accidentally takes her secret crush back in time. Awkward.Boy watching with her best friend would be enough excitement for fifteen year old Casey Donovan. She doesn’t even mind life at the bottom of the Cambridge High social ladder, if only she didn’t have this other much bigger problem. Unscheduled trips to the nineteenth century!

When Casey gets talked into going to the Fall Dance, the unthinkable happens–she accidentally takes Nate Mackenzie, the cutest boy in the school, back in time.

Protocol pressures her to tell their 1860 hosts that he is her brother and when Casey finds she has a handsome, wealthy (and unwanted) suitor, something changes in Nate. Are those romantic sparks or is it just ‘brotherly’ protectiveness?

When they return to the present things go back to the way they were before: Casey at the bottom of the social totem pole and Nate perched on the very the top. Except this time her heart is broken. Plus, her best friend is mad, her parents are split up, and her little brother gets escorted home by the police. The only thing that could make life worse is if, by some strange twist of fate, she took Nate back to the past again.

Which of course, she does.
