A young Latin tutor—penniless and bullied by a violent father—falls in love with an extraordinary, eccentric young woman. Agnes is a wild creature who walks her family’s land with a falcon on her glove and is known throughout the countryside for her unusual gifts as a healer, understanding plants and potions better than she does people. Once she settles with her husband on Henley Street in Stratford-upon-Avon, she becomes a fiercely protective mother and a steadfast, centrifugal force in the life of her young husband, whose career on the London stage is just taking off when his beloved young son succumbs to sudden fever.

The Royal Palm Literary Awards Gold Medalist for Published Mystery Novel 2020From Rachel Caine, NYT bestselling author of the Stillhouse Lake series: “GHOST is a delicious, sun-drenched, frightening delight.

“Delightfully defied my expectations.”
“…deftly drawn and complex characters.”
“I became so invested…I didn’t want to put the book down.”
“The whole package!…Mystery, friendship, paranormal, police drama, and even a dash of romance.”

After Archivist Andrea Kelley scores a sweet rental in Charleston, WV, she discovers it’s already occupied. But the early rising, bacon-loving ghost of six-year-old Billie Mae makes for a tolerable roommate. Until two bodies turn up nearby and Billie Mae launches a full-fledged haunting offensive.
Scared, but determined, Andrea relies on her research skills and her best friend, Detective William Taka, to investigate the strange circumstances surrounding Billie Mae’s death—and her mother’s confession of murder. He’s got the time to help because he’s pissed off his superiors, set an old feud on fire, and now someone’s tracking his every move.
Caught between an increasing phantom fury and Taka’s sudden disappearance, Andrea’s forced to confront the boundaries of her safe academic life. And the limits of her courage. Can she unearth a long-buried secret in time to save Taka and unmask a killer? Can she do it without either of them joining Billie Mae on the other side?
Modern Southern Gothic meets Sleuthing Procedural in this atmospheric murder mystery. Typical violence for genre. LGTBQ. Diversity. First book in series.
Kevin McNicholl may be a brutal force on the rugby field, but off the field, the star New Zealand All Black is a famously nice guy. His new tenant, though, arouses more than his protective side. She sets him on fire. Pity he’s evicting her. Every woman deserves her dreams. Chloe Donaldson can’t afford dreams, though, so she’s given them up. Marriage, her ballet career, and now, her beautiful tower apartment with its view of the sea. Her new landlord is kicking her out, along with her three-year-old son, Zavy. She should hate him. But when a man looks at you like that, it’s so easy to lose your focus.
Three surviving sixteenth-century journals written during the expedition detailed a complex array of twelve different nations. Each had separate beliefs, languages, and interconnected villages with capital towns comparable in size to European cities of the time. Through these densely populated sites, the Spanish carried a host of deadly old-world diseases, a powerful new religion, and war.
No other Europeans ventured into this land until French explorers arrived one hundred and thirty years later. They found nothing of the people or the towns that the Spanish had so vividly described. For those lost nations, the only hope that their stories, their last remaining essence will ever be heard again lies with one unlikely Storykeeper.
