Gretchen Gibbs’s The Book of Maggie Bradstreet – Print and eBook Editions
In Maggie Bradstreet’s diary, excitement turns to horror as more and more people are accused of witchcraft, and her best friend’s mother is taken off to jail. The Book of Maggie Bradstreet is based on historical records. Salem’s witch trials are well-known, but what happened in nearby Andover is an untold and remarkable story. “Gretchen Gibbs brings Puritan New England to life. Too gutsy for her own time, Maggie is a girl today’s readers will understand. The novel is a page-turner–part mystery, part romance, part coming-of-age story. Struggling against witchcraft hysteria, Maggie is a bewitching heroine.” Read more about Gretchen at glenmerepress.com
Terrie Farley Moran’s The Awareness and Other Deadly Tales – eBook Edition
In this collection of short mystery fiction, the title story tells of an avenger with a supernatural twist. The final story, “When a Bright Star Fades,” brings an edge of redemption to a 1930’s noir. In between are five stories that range from family relationships, to courtroom drama. “Ms. Moran must be a shape-shifter because she manages to slip into each character’s skin and speak in a voice that is true and unique. Her range is remarkable. I was sorry when the book ended, but these are the kind of stories I know I’ll go back to.”

In this mystery novel, Blues-singer Maxx Maxwell is smart, talented, and gorgeous–at least since she had her nose fixed, went blonde, and bought a push-up bra. Her band, Maxximum Blues, is really taking off, thanks to the talents of her heartbreakingly handsom guitarist Jimmy Nashville. But then Jimmy plunges to his death from the window of his ninth-floor apartment.
“Maxx’s debut has a real feel for the bar-music scene and a gutsy, believable sleuth.” – Kirkus Review (5/15/08)
