Listing from the top is the nookbook ($.99).------------Overview It is late summer in the year 1270 and England is as weary as its aging king, Henry III. Although the Simon de Montfort rebellion is over, the smell of death still hangs like smoke over the land. Even in the small priory of Tyndal on the remote East Anglian coast, the monks and nuns of the Order of Fontevraud long for a return to tranquil routine. Their hopes are dashed, however, when the young and inexperienced Eleanor of Wynethorpe is appointed their new prioress over someone of their own choosing. Nor are Eleanor's own prayers for a peaceful transition answered. Only a day after her arrival, a brutally murdered monk is found in the cloister gardens, and Brother Thomas, a young priest with a troubled past, arrives to bring her a more personal grief. Now she must not only struggle to gain the respect of her terrified and resentful flock but also cope with violence, lust and greed in a place dedicated to love and peace.

Spencer Quinn’s first original e-short story reveals how everyone’s favorite detective duo—Chet the Dog and P.I. Bernie Little—came to meet before their first big case in Dog On It.
As fans know, Chet first met Bernie on that fateful day when he flunked out of K-9 police school. The details of that day though have always remained a little vague (like so much in Chet’s doggy brain). All we know is that Chet had been the best leaper in his K-9 class, but for some reason he failed his final leaping test...and that a cat was involved...and that there was some blood. But whose? The test, the cat, the blood—all pieces of a puzzle that, when solved, will bring down a dangerous gang of thieves—and signal the start of a beautiful friendship.
This fateful day has been alluded to in every book in the series, and now fans of Chet and Bernie will finally get to find out what actually happened. For these two beloved characters, it was something like love at first sight—and, for Chet, at first smell, too.
New York Times bestselling author Javier Sierra returns with a heartpounding,apocalyptic thriller about mankind’s most ancient desire—and the modern evil some will unleash to obtain it.

Hot Tea Cara O'Flynn finds herself in an unusual position. She's quit her job and can afford to take a few weeks to find a new career. The problem - Cara didn’t plan for three careers in as many days, nor did she anticipate the new guys that dropped in her lap. And then there's her sister Teagan, while always helpful and funny, she can be a bit annoying at times.
Sweet Tea - Cara and Teagan are dealing with wishes come true. The good news is that each of them has found the man of her dreams, unfortunately this is not news easily broken to their traditional mother. Further complicating their lives, they find themselves in the middle of a serial murder investigation; worse still, Cara may have come to the attention of the murderer.
Iced Tea - Cara and Teagan are dealing with wishes gone awry. The serial murderer, if there is one, is still out there. The new guys are supportive, as is the family, but there is a limit to how involved Cara and Teagan want the people they love most to be. Life has been spinning out of control for some time and now it's up to Cara and Teagan to put it to rights.
Green Tea finds Cara and Teagan more determined than ever, but determination without focus doesn't get you very far. There's a wedding just days away. A time to celebrate and enjoy family and tradition, but Cara keeps her distance as situations outside of her control threaten her in ways she is just beginning to recognize.
Peppermint Tea - With complications swirling around Cara and Teagan, a cruise to Alaska might be just the opportunity they were looking for to calm things down and reconnect. They didn’t count on things changing so much while they were gone. One bad guy out of jail, another unaccounted for. Cara has always counted on Teagan to walk with her through the good and bad parts of life, but even that seems to be changing…
Tea to Go - Things are changing and Cara is reminded that not all change is good. Domestic violence has never been a factor in the O'Flynn family. Until now. With Teagan away and one complication after the next raining down on Cara, the importance of family has never been more clear.
Summer Tea Cara has lost count of which three she's in. She's pretty sure the pregnancy three ended with Jovana's daughter-in-law becoming pregnant. Not sure where she stands in the mystery count. But it's a whole other count that she's worried about. One of life’s biggest lessons is perspective. Your perspective can change in a heartbeat. Cara is learning that life lesson the hard way.

When the decomposing body of a young woman is found, the wounds on her wrists suggest an open-and-shut case of suicide. But Jack Caffery is not so sure. Other apparent suicides are cropping up, and they all have a connection to Elf's Grotto, a nearly bottomless network of flooded quarries just outside the city. Caffery begins to suspect a shadowy and sinister predator, someone—or something— that can disappear into darkness and slip into houses unseen. Working alongside Caffery is rough-and-tough police diver Flea Marley, but while pursuing her investigation, she stumbles upon something far too close to home that no one—not even Caffery—can help her face. Skin is a penetrating dissection of family, friendships, and the evil that can tear them apart—or bind them together. Devious and disturbing, it introduces one of Hayder's most horrifying villains yet.
