Bargain Book: Nora’s Escape by Faith Parsons

NorasEscape400A WOMAN WRONGED

Widowed and kicked out of her home, Nora Alders is horrified when her husband’s brother offers to give her a house—if she’s willing to become his mistress.

Nora chooses instead to pawn her jewelry and move into a New York tenement. With her funds dwindling, she sees no other option: she must look to the western frontier for a husband.

A MAN OF HIS WORD

Ben Robertson has everything a successful rancher could want—except for a family. When he connects with Nora through a mail-order bride catalog, it seems he’s about to have it all. She’s exactly his type: smart, independent and resourceful.

A SURPRISING DISCOVERY

But when Nora’s mother-in-law learns that Nora might be carrying her grandson, she comes after Nora with a vengeance. How far will the wealthy Alders matriarch go to recover the family’s potential heir?

And will the struggle for the child shatter Nora’s fragile new relationship with Ben?

Bargain Book for 05/23/2016: The Doom Murders by Brian O’Hare

DoomSmall12Prominent figures in Belfast are being murdered. The bodies are left naked and posed in grotesquely distorted shapes. No clues are left at the forensically immaculate crime scenes except odd theatrical props and some random numbers and letters concealed at each scene by the killer. How are the victims linked? What is the connection between these killings, the bible, and a famous mediaeval painting of The Last Judgement?

The Doom Murders has been the recipient of three literary awards – The IDB Award in 2014; The New Apple Award, 2014, for Excellence in Independent Publishing; and the 2015 Readers’ Favourite International Book Awards (Bronze Medal Winner).

“The Chief Inspector, Jim Sheehan, is drawn so deftly and with such genuineness, you can feel him breathing.” (Eugene Fournier, novelist and screenwriter, film and TV)

“The most subtle of clues are intricately interwoven into the storyline, and even the most astute mystery buff is apt to miss them.” (Donna Cummins, Author of the Blacklick Valley Mystery Series)

“Incredibly addictive page turner.” (Meghan, Amazon Top 1000 Reviewer)

“O’Hare leans toward the human side of his characters, imbuing them with a real world presence that is in turn witty and

Bargain Book for 05/23/2016: The 11.05 Murders by Brian O’Hare

Vintage Franz Zajizek Astronomical Clock machineryThree people are murdered on separate Tuesday evenings at precisely 11.05. Random clues point to random suspects, but too many questions remain unanswered. Why 11.05pm for each killing? Is there any connection between these deaths and a rape that occurred at Queen’s university twelve years before? What is the connection between the killings and Sergeant Stewart’s mystery informant? Who is the violent stalker who twice nearly kills Detective Allen? What is his connection, if any, to the murders? When one of his team is kidnapped, Inspector Sheehan has literally only minutes to make sense of these questions if he is to save his colleague’s life.

The first thing I thought after reading this book is: why isn’t Brian O’Hare better known in the crime writing world? This man is extremely talented, and his book a wonderful ‘whodunnit’ that left me guessing until the end. [Joseph Sousa, Crime-writer]

Head and shoulders above most mystery authors who are published today, Brian O’Hare deserves far wider recognition. You won’t regret purchasing his books.[CBT, Amazon Reviewer]

Brian O’Hare is an intelligent and compassionate storyteller who takes his chosen genre a decent literary distance beyond your average ‘whodunnit’.[Robin Chambers, author]

Living with Markus by Florence Osmund

Living-with-Markus-Cover-500pxThirty-one-year-old Marc Nussbaum has visions of enjoying the finer things in life after building a successful landscaping business with clientele from the affluent suburbs of Chicago—no dependents, no commitments outside of work, no worries. And he’s found the perfect woman to enjoy it with him. But when his dysfunctional family members come to him when they’re in trouble, he repeatedly shoves his own life aside to run to their aid.
Falling victim to their helplessness, Marc eventually loses sight of his own dreams and much to his chagrin, his girlfriend. After painful soul-searching and late-night talks with the fetching tenant from downstairs, he must decide whether to continue saving them from their ill-fated lives, or save himself from entering into a life of self-sacrifice and missed opportunities.
Marc eventually realizes his purpose in life and how to achieve self-fulfillment—but the purpose in life that he discovers for himself isn’t at all what he had previously envisioned.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I like to craft stories that contain thought-provoking plots—particularly ones that challenge readers to survey their own values. Throughout the story, I want readers to ask themselves what they would do if they were in a similar situation. Since so many families have dysfunctional members among them, I thought readers would be able to relate to the main character of this story who is forced to decide between attending to their needs or his own.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I recently visited the Namib desert and loved the place. I also read the book the man eaters of Tsavo and watched the film the ghost and the darkness. My aunt is a big fan of diamonds and I love 1800’s Africa. I wanted to combine all these to create a compelling and believable story. I also wated to put my zoological knowledge to good use for scenes when the lions and other wildlife are present.

Story Tellers: In Pursuit of Happiness: (The Son of Solomon: A Saga of the Ancient Family) by Thomas Jerome Baker

Story-Tellers-In-Pursuit-of-HappinessFantasy, legend, myth, creation, saga, folklore and folktales, magic, mysticism and mythology all come together in this family saga. David, Son of Solomon, must save the world. But isn’t that asking a bit much of a boy? The stones and bones of Mother Earth will be needed if David is to have a chance in his quest to keep the Earth and its inhabitants safe from the evil sorceress, Alicia.

Now, stones & bones are part of our oral tradition. We find stones & bones in folktales, mythology, and religion. What people like about the oral tradition is the ability to change the story, each time you tell it.

The result is unique and entertaining. You recognise the story, but it’s different, unlike anything you have ever heard before. It’s like going into the kitchen on the day after Thanksgiving. You get a meal by making some unusual combinations: a pinch of salt here, a bit of sugar there.

I have taken stones and bones, stories and myths, folklore and tradition, a bit of religion, a pinch of love, a bit of travel, mixed it all up with an incredible long distance romance and built it up around a dynamic protagonist who you will either love to hate, or hate to love…

For dessert (yes, you get dessert too), there is also birth, rebirth, a battle for immortality and ultimate power to rule the world. It all comes down to the choices that an unlikely hero will have to make about who to trust, and who not to trust.

Finally, this book is dedicated to you, the reader. I hope you enjoy your story. These stones & bones, I humbly offer for your reading pleasure. Enjoy… Story Tellers have always told the stories of man’s pursuit of love, gold, power, and ultimately, happiness. In this book we meet a mythical storyteller, Solomon, his wife Lanisha, and his son David. Through their stories we follow the earliest fortunes and misfortunes of man’s attempt to achieve tremendous wealth, power and happiness. It is a story which will leave you wiser about the true meaning of true redemptive love, success, and joy…

This story is eclectic, crossing genre and age boundaries. It is not a straight line, which is true to the life I have seen lived, yet it retains its ability to speak to many people. Tolkien, Rowling, Bradbury, King, all these authors have inspired me to write this story.This is the kind of story that I enjoyed reading as a child, a coming of age of the young hero on a quest with no apparent destination to return to, who also grows from boyhood into manhood.
