From the mist and into his arms.

As a cooking show host, Megan Forrester spends most of her time on a TV studio set.

In the make-believe kitchen, her life is a five-course meal of achievement. But in the romance department—not so much. Megan has zero time for dating so when the chance of a fun-filled getaway with friends comes along, she grabs it, sans oven mitts, with both hands.

What she didn’t expect was getting lost in a mysterious fog and stumbling into the arms of an ex-pirate turned supply runner in the 1800s. One that catches her attention far more than the orange-blue flames of a chocolate and cherry sauce flambé.

Thankfully, rugged Everett Quinn is determined to help her survive in an era she knows nothing about. But the deeper she delves into this new world of high sea adventures with Everett, the more she starts to wonder if maybe—just maybe—she’s right where she’s supposed to be…

With him.

From USA Today bestselling author Camilla Chafer comes a brand new mystery.

Welcome to Calendar where life is sweet, but death is murder.

Sara Cutler loves her job as head librarian of the public library, an integral part of the historic heart of the picturesque mountain town, Calendar. The combination of old books, quirky clientele, and endless reading is nothing less than perfection for Sara. So when she discovers a body in the rare books section that threatens to destroy her quiet existence, along with the imminent demise of the library, Sara vows to find the killer.

She never expects to receive any help from Jason Rees, the handsome, big city developer whose only objective is to get rid of the library. Sara assumes he is counting on the murder to serve as the final death knell his firm needs to demolish the library. However, that doesn’t prevent him from falling head over heels for the very woman with whom he’s clashing.

When news arrives that the dead woman was nothing that she appeared to be, the whole town is instantly enthralled by the concept of having an actual jewel thief in their midst. Even more puzzling is: where did she hide her stolen treasure?

All Sara must do to save the library is simply solve the murder, find the hidden jewels, and convince herself not to succumb to the one man she would rather see run out town. It doesn’t take long before she realizes that amateur sleuthing isn’t as easy in real life as it is in the stories she loves to read.

Twelve cozy mysteries… one deadly town!

Determined to help Paula, Lindsay enlists the reluctant aid of another neighbor, Fred, an OCD computer nerd.

STORM CRAZY & CRY ME A RIVER

Welcome to Destiny, or I should say Middle Earth…
Jack Lang, sheriff, former Navy pilot. 
To say Destiny was not what I expected would be like saying Wolverine’s fingernails were long enough for a manicure. I’d been looking for Mayberry, a quaint little safe town to raise my daughter. That ship sailed when I met Tempest Pomeroy, who turned out to be a storm witch with a djinni brother and an ex who was… hell, I don’t know what he is. But I wasn’t sure I could stay. I had a teenage daughter to consider.
Tempe Pomeroy, Tempestaerie, mail lady, and – as Jack likes to say – trouble magnet.
Isn’t it just like a man to exit a relationship when he finds out a woman has a few little secrets? Following Jack’s, um, enlightenment, he finally started investigating my little brother’s disappearance, but time is running out and our relationship has gone from attraction to suspicion, support to friendship, romance to oh-my-god-get-away-from-me revulsion.
Jack’s an ex-Navy pilot. He says he wants to know “everything”. He may stick around, help me save my brother and discover the whereabouts of my parents, but I doubt he’ll still want to take me to the Mardi Gras ball, once he knows “everything”. He’ll probably take the first jet out of Middle Earth. ‘Cause there’s a lot of everything…
