Price: $3.99
271 pages, with a 4.7-star rating from 3 reviews

"Romance sparks when Grace meets Angus, a handsome single pastor at the local church. To that add in a creepy handy man, a couple of snakes, a murky swamp, colorful Gullah characters, dead bodies and you have a realistic tale of murder woven into the lower coastal setting of South Carolina. Loved Tata Brown. "De smoke run de 'skeetuh 'way." Theresa Jenner Garrido is quite a storyteller! Reminiscent of Agatha Christie's use of red herrings. She kept me guessing until the end." -- Amazon reviewer

Grace Hammond shed her dismal past and moved to the South Carolina Low Country to join friends and make a fresh start. The colorful locals charm, delight... and terrify. For one of them is a killer.

And one of them will become the love of her life.

Meet the Author

Born and raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest of Washington State, Theresa spent the first nine years of her life on an island in Puget Sound. With no neighborhood children nearby, she depended on imaginary people to keep her company until the much anticipated summer months when her best friend and cousin, Barbara, came to visit. Together, they created a world of exciting and ominous characters, often scaring themselves silly in the process.

Theresa attended the University of Washington, received a B.A. in English, and spent the next twenty-plus years teaching middle school language arts and social studies before retiring "early." Now she is happy to indulge her wild imagination and passionate love of history and share these foibles with others, including her husband, Jerry, her humongous family, and a rescue pup and stray black cat.

Theresa has made her home in Missouri, Georgia, and North Carolina but currently resides in South Carolina. When not at the computer, behind the vacuum, or in the laundry room, she enjoys traveling and poking her nose into strange and mysterious places. She has discovered unspeakable wonders in forty-two of our awesome fifty states--from the coast of California, the deserts of Arizona and New Mexico, the tall prairie grasses of the Midwest, to the swamps of the deep South. She loves every corner of these United States and plans to visit all fifty before too long.

A quiet beach town, south of Charleston, snagged Theresa's attention years ago and beguiles this Pacific Northwest girl with its Spanish moss and Live oaks. But she must confess, her favorite place to dream is still the Olympic Peninsula of her own Washington State, where ancient, massive trees, omnipresent drizzling rain, and the numerous scents and sounds of growing things stirs her soul. Theresa makes a pilgrimage "home" as often as she can. Theresa is a member of ACFW and the ACFW-SC Chapter, Anderson, SC

Ratham Creek, by Marie F Martin. (Still free?)

"This is not just a page turner, its a page BURNER!! The book takes place in a rural mountain town, and Marie Martin completely takes you there. You can practically smell the fresh air, and the wood burring stoves. The story twists and turns, and you find yourself taking sides with characters you weren't really sure about. If you are looking for a great story, with great characters, a little bit of mystery and a lot of suspense this is the book for you. I highly recommend it." -- Amazon reviewer

Unexpectedly widowed and left destitute, Arianne Hollis retreats to a remote area of Montana and struggles to build a new life. She becomes acquainted with clannish mountain people and newcomers, only to find herself sucked into a feud between them. Then she becomes a target. Will Arianne give into the same vengeance that corrupts the clan?

A Lion After My Own Heart: (BBW Paranormal Shape Shifter Romance) (Honeycomb Falls Book 5), by Cassie Wright. (Still 0.99?)

"Such a wonderful read!! I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. Wonderful characters, I love how the original characters make a appearance in this book. Can't wait for the next one." -- Amazon reviewer

Myra’s given her life to being the best reporter there is. No story is too dangerous, no assignment too hard. Sure it’s come at the cost of her personal life, but that’s fine: she doesn’t need a man. When the work is done, all she needs is tub of gourmet ice-cream and a good series on Netflix. Or so she tells herself.
 

Then she’s given the most challenging assignment of her life: to write a profile of the smokin’ hot Alexander Adams, the golden haired mayoral candidate. 

Yet the closer she looks, the more she becomes convinced that he’s no normal human. In fact, she’s sure he’s a shifter - and the deeper she digs, the more convinced she becomes that he hails from a small, out of the way town called Honeycomb Falls.
 

Yet Alexander is beguiling and charismatic beyond measure, and he doesn’t want his background exposed. Myra’s about to discover just how far is he willing to go to keep his secrets - and for the first time, she just might have to choose between her story and her heart.

Left Alive #1, by Jeremy Laszlo. (Still free?)

"Laszlo has created a very realistic scenario for a post-apocalyptic setting and really puts you into the mind of the main character, Charles, as he takes you along his journey. That journey is nothing short of an emotional roller-coaster, with a very relatable goal: to find his daughters. If you are one who enjoys post-apocalyptic novels, check this one out--you wont be disappointed!" -- Amazon reviewer

Adults only due to graphic violence and sexual situations.

Book 1 of 4

The world is dead. Plants gone. Animals gone. The air is thick with dust and ash. Water has turned to murky cesspools of death and decay. Life and Earth as we know it are gone—at least all the good parts.


It’s been almost a year since the first signs that we killed our planet began to arise. Order and humanity are gone now, replaced by vigilante justice and survival at all costs. Nine months have passed since the quarantines were put in place. Six months since we realized it was too late, and just after that the governments of the world fell.


That was nearly seven billion people ago, and now Charles has decided it is time to pack up and leave in search of the one thing still worth living for—his daughters.
 

With rumors of roving bands of cannibals, and even zombies, he knows making the journey is a long shot, but he has to try. He promised their dying mother that he would keep them safe and has every intention of doing just that, come hell or hungry zombies.

In a soulless world filled with nothing but pain and death, will his determination be enough to see him through to the end?

After: The Shock (AFTER post-apocalyptic series, Book 1), by Scott Nicholson. (Still free?)

"I love reading Scott Nicholson's work and I love reading post apocalyptic books. I loved the characters in this book, the story, the settings, and the realness. I think the realness of the story is what hit home the most. It made me want to go out and make myself a survival bunker, and store my stuff in a Faraday cage. Can not wait on the next installment. Bring on the Zapheads!" -- Amazon reviewer

"Nobody thrills like Nicholson does. Nobody." - J.A. Konrath, Origin

"Always surprises and always entertains." - Jonathan Maberry, Patient Zero

The first book in the AFTER post-apocalyptic thriller series from an international bestselling author.

AFTER: THE SHOCK

A massive solar storm erases the world's technological infrastructure and kills billions. While the remaining humans are struggling to adapt and survive, they notice that some among them have...changed.

Rachel Wheeler finds herself alone in the city, where violent survivors known as "Zapheads" roam the streets, killing and destroying. Her only hope is to reach the mountains, where her grandfather, a legendary survivalist, established a compound in preparation for Doomsday.

Other survivors are fleeing the city, but Zapheads aren't the only danger. Rogue bands of military soldiers want to impose their own order in the crumbling ruins of civilization. When Rachel discovers a 10-year-old boy, she vows to care for him even at the risk of her own life.

And the Zapheads are evolving, developing communal skills even as they lay waste to the society they will eventually replace.
