Alexa Parker and Braden Elliott fell in love when they were twelve years old. On a summer day, while searching for sea glass on the beaches of Washington State, they discovered an unusually shaped blue bottle. The ever-imaginative Alexa declared it a Genie's bottle. Popping the cork, they were surprised by a rogue wave that sprayed them with a fine, cool mist. Closing their eyes, they each made a wish …


Before their love had a chance to grow, life, family and tragedy separated the two best friends. Now fifteen years later, Alexa returns to Sand Harbor after her grandmother is injured in a mysterious break-in at her antique store. Braden is also back, but he's not the innocent boy Alexa remembers. His military service has left him with physical and emotional scars.


Can the sweet love of youth be recaptured by two now cynical souls? Can solving the mystery of the past bring them to a new future? Or will it take a wish, maybe two …



Phoebe, the Rose Chalet’s florist, knows nothing is permanent—not the floral arrangements she creates, not the weddings she helps produce, and certainly not her parent’s marriage, which ended in a bitter divorce. Certain that all relationships come with strings attached, she has always worked to live for the moment and not to have any strings…ever.


Risking big is how Patrick left the family landscaping business, was the first Knight to go to college, and became an in demand architect. In California for a short while to work on a new home, from the very first moment he holds Phoebe in his arms, he knows he’s found his perfect match in the adventurous, alluring and intelligent florist.


But will Phoebe dare let herself risk her heart on the most fragile and precious bloom of all in Lucy Kevin’s The Wedding Dance? Especially when one dance with Patrick Knight is all it takes for her to start rethinking everything she’s ever believed to be true about love...



A secret hall of mirrors, a labyrinth of fear; Janek returns in a hypnotic thriller...this is Mirror Maze.


Nobody writes better psychological thrillers than award-winning author William Bayer. And no character in contemporary crime fiction is as compelling or complex as Lieutenant Frank Janek of the N.Y.P.D. Now Bayer and Janek are back--in a brilliant novel of terror and excitement.


A beautiful young woman meets her latest "pickup" in a Manhattan hotel bar and goes back with him to his room, where she drugs him, robs him, and humiliates him. Several hours later, the "mark" is found dead, the mysterious young woman is wanted for the murder, and Janek and his team of detectives are assigned to the case. Simultaneously, Janek becomes involved in the reopening of a grisly society-murder investigation that has plagued Internal Affairs for nine years. As he sets out to solve both puzzles, the present and past eerily dovetail, culminating with a deadly battle in a secret mirror maze hidden beneath a "ghost" amusement park.



Readers will be inspired by Joyce Anne Longfellow's compelling memoir,  I Could Never Say Goodbye: A Daughter's Journey to the End of Life with Mom and Dad, about the deaths of her parents--the quick, traumatic death of her father and the lengthy illness preceding her mother’s passing. The author wrote this book after sharing her experiences with many, many people. As she advised people who struggled with the dilemma of what to do and how to cope when their loved ones were dying, Ms. Longfellow realized that her experiences provided comfort and guidance that made a difference.  Eventually realized she had to write her story to motivate and inspire others to create their own rituals and learn to say goodbye in their own ways
