For B.J. Bandry, who is already feeling woefully insecure in her position as Laurel Grove’s Acting Chief of Police, the case is baffling, the family infuriating and the stakes extremely high, even when it becomes clear that Sienna is safe and sound, somewhere nearby, and just has no trust in the local police department for reasons of her own.

But an accidental death – which may have been no accident – reveals that the heart of England is far from the tranquil backwater he imagined. After arriving in Bunburry, he is co-opted as an amateur detective by Liz and Marge, two elderly ladies who were best friends with Alfie’s late Aunt Augusta.

Purify, by Wendi L. Wilson

Purify

Everything changed the day I met the Patton triplets. And not just because they’re Alts- a group of children born to test subjects of a drug trial gone wrong. It also changed because together, we found love.

He turned me into a scientific experiment, forced to perform like a circus monkey and donate tubes of blood weekly. I performed without complaint…for the most part. I was, after all, still me.

Dead Pirates of Cawsand, by Steve Higgs

Dead Pirates of Cawsand

Gold coins from a centuries old sunken treasure ship have been found on the beach in Cawsand. This would be no cause for Tempest Michaels to take notice, but a man murdered by the ghost of a dead pirate come to claim back the gold? That ticks all his boxes.

Tempest, oblivious to the events in Cawsand and believing he was overdue a week off, has travelled to Cornwall with his dogs for some relaxation and perhaps a cream tea or two. Well, fat chance of that because he is hip deep in murderous ghosts before he finishes his second pint.

Uncovering a disturbing undercurrent in the sleepy seaside village, a race against time begins for him to crack the case before anyone else gets hurt? Together with the local Police Officer, the diminutive, sexy and very domineering Bobbi the Bobby plus some other helping hands he could probably do without, he will do all he can to reveal the truth.
