Soul Search is a very different kind of supernatural story, and thus our Book Pick of the Month for April.
The spirits of the dead are like drowning people. They have no intent to do harm, but once they notice people like Fia, they latch on and in their panic and desperation, drag them under. Fia is a young woman in deep trouble, but the world thinks she owns the deluxe edition of crazy. To have any chance at a normal life, she needs a new start. Convinced that the woods are empty and safe, she signs on as a wilderness search and rescue volunteer. Bad assumption. Big mistake.
When Fia witnesses a psychopomp leading a dead boy through a portal to the afterlife, she is frantic to learn the secret of how to free herself from the dead. Can she overcome her necrophobia and serve the Guardian of the Dead?
Soul Search is available on Amazon.

Our March Book Pick is The Pharm House, a foreboding and darkly suspenseful debut medical thriller by Bill Powers set in the hidden underworld of the global pharmaceutical business. Even though The Pharm House is set in a pharmaceutical company, it is really a story about family. It’s about Nicholas Harding, a young scientist/executive at Marshall Pharmaceutical. Nicholas is a regular guy – a single Dad trying to raise a precocious 11-year-old daughter while clawing his way up that ever so slippery middle management ladder. But unknown to Nicholas, there are dark forces inside Marshall Pharmaceutical and he is about to be drawn into their plans and finds himself fighting for his career, his family and perhaps even his life.
Our January Book Pick is
The Weight of Living, the third book in the Frank Nagler series by Michael Stephen Daigle. The Weight of Living is an intense, involving page-turner, with scenes that will shock the reader and grab at the emotional bond they will have with the characters, all leading to a surprising, yet hopeful end.
The earlier books, The Swamps of New Jersey and A Game Called Dead also follow the investigations of widowed detective Frank Nagler. We are told a fourth Frank Nagler book is on the way. Can’t wait. To learn more, go to www.MichaelStaphenDaigle.com

December’s Book Pick is in keeping with the holiday season, a Christmas mystery, The Worst Noel by Amy M. Reade.
Christmas is supposed to be a time of peace, love, and joy, but for Lilly Carlsen, this Christmas is murder. As a single mom, small business owner, and president of the local Chamber of Commerce, the last thing she needs is to find a dead body on the floor of her jewelry shop on the busiest shopping day of the year. And as if that isn’t enough, Lilly has to deal with a deadbeat ex-husband, a mother with declining mental health, and two teenagers. But when a second body turns up, Lilly finds herself squarely in the crosshairs of suspicion. Can she figure out who killed the victims before she becomes one herself? And will her family’s Christmas be merry…or scary?
