WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

No one is surprised that “nosy Rosie” is the one who finds poor Mr. Hummel in the garden. The surprise is the knife in his back. Nothing like this has ever happened in Chittendom Creek, let alone at the ReVisions Retirement Residence. When the oldies start dropping like flies, it’s Kira Callahan to the rescue.

To solve the murder, Kira enlists the assistance of her friends, The Flower Pots—so named due to their past and present semi-legal activity. But Kira is up Chit Creek when a final ingenious plan to capture the killer almost ends with a victim close to her heart.

ABOUT THE STORY: Ben McCabe has only one thing on his mind when he’s released from the Yuma Territorial Prison for a crime he didn’t commit: Revenge. Four years of his life gone, spent in a torturous hellhole. He wants the man responsible brought to justice, regardless of the cost. When Wisteria Bush finds an unconscious man next to the Colorado River, she knows she has to help him, no matter how dangerous he may be. She nurses him back to health to find he is a threat to her, but not in a way she’d ever imagined. When her brother takes up cattle rustling and intends to marry her to his boss, the handsome stranger has other ideas.
DeANN SMALLWOOD AUTHOR BIO: I live in Colorado with my husband and my two Yorkie kid dogs: Stormy, four pounds, and Eli, six pounds. I’m a native of Colorado, but I’ve lived several years in Wyoming and Montana. I draw from these beautiful states for most of my books. My Western Historical Romances are: Montana Star, Sapphire Blue, Unconquerable Callie, One Shingle To Hang, and Wyoming Heather and One Shingle To Hang. Tears In The Wind is a contemporary romance. Then I changed genres from my beloved romances and wrote, under the pen name of D. M. Woods, my first suspense/thriller: Death Crosses The Finish Line. The second book in this ‘death’ series, Death Is A Habit, came out January 8, 2014. I am currently working on the third book in the ‘death’ series, Death Walks C Dock. I am also working on another Western Historical Romance, Montana Man. It features the characters readers came to know and love in Montana Star. Truly, I mean it when I say my greatest pleasure next to writing is having my books read and enjoyed. There are many more stories just waiting to be written

A horrific murder. An innocent man. A deadly secret. #SeventhFire #EmilyTaylorMystery #amreading #CatherineAstolfo

TSeventh_Fire_FrontODAY’S REVOLVING BOOK IS THE DARK MYSTERY: SEVENTH FIRE (BOOK 4 EMILY TAYLOR MYSTERY SERIES) by Catherine Astolfo

GET IT EXCLUSIVELY AT AMAZON: http://amzn.to/1OkpRso

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

Seventh Fire is the fourth and final installment of the Emily Taylor Mysteries. Emily and her husband, Langford, travel back both in place and time to the site of their dark and mysterious past, a past that led to jail and months in a hospital bed. Along the journey to prove Langford’s innocence, they uncover an appalling secret that threatens their lives once more, and this time, the attack may be fatal.

STELLAR REVIEWS:

“The evocative setting of 1980’s Vancouver is beautifully described in Astolfo’s latest Emily Taylor mystery “Seventh Fire.” The horror of murder intertwines with the passion of art in an intriguing plot that the reader unravels only at the end. Emily Taylor fans will be astounded at the dark secrets that lurk in her past.” —Janet Kellough, author of On the Head of a Pin

“Seventh Fire is a chilling tale with unimaginable evil at its core. Astolfo slowly but steadily builds suspense while introducing a handful of plausible villains that keep the reader guessing until the very end. The story is a chilling, cautionary tale at odds with the beautiful setting of Vancouver, which Astolfo paints with a deft hand.” —Brenda Chapman, author of In Winter’s Grip

“Thirty years ago a horrific murder shocked the city of Vancouver. The killer was quickly caught, tried, and incarcerated. But they had the wrong man, and Emily Taylor has devoted her life to seeing her husband exonerated. Seventh Fire is a powerful tale of love verses hate and the ability of that love to triumph over evil.” — Vicki Delany, author of Among the Departed

SYNOPSIS:
“Just be yourself – everyone else is taken.”

That should be 30-year old Keri Ferrita’s motto.

Have you ever known a “chameleon?” Is there hope for Keri Ferrita, who, (mostly) unknowingly, IS one. Keri has no idea who she really is anymore. Raised in the Midwest, where catching frogs and shoveling manure was common practice, then spending several adult years traveling the country and hob-nobbing with celebrities and the elite, Keri has finally returned to her roots. She now lives in her sister’s basement, wondering just who in the heck she really is anymore.

After a peculiar meeting with the Quinn cousins, Keith and Jeremy, Keri becomes determined to capture Keith’s attention. Keith is an actor, a tall, compelling man, elusive, even abrasive at times, which makes him particularly intriguing to a woman like Keri who has been accustomed to capturing the heart of any man she’s ever wanted. Yet it was Jeremy, the humble cabinet-maker in the woods, who’d actually leaped into a bon-fire to rescue a scrap of an old coat for her that had sentimental value.

But Keith is handsome, mysterious, and obviously hiding secrets. He is a challenge. Jeremy is down to earth, and talented. He plants flowers and vines. He has a misshapen, possibly a “ghost-dog” named Scalawag, and has built a secret room in his house. He is interesting, but also—short. Maybe better suited for Keri’s friend, Darci, who could stand to date a caring, stable man to help with her troubled son, Nathan. Following two episodes with the facial disorder, Bell’s Palsy, and after Jeremy’s decision to move out of state – possibly to run from his heartbreak over her – Keri finally decides not only who she really is — but who she needs to become.

AUTHOR BIO:
Born in the small town of Wayland, Michigan, Lori has been writing since she was about 0 years old. Hand-printing, illustrating, and stapling together pages to look like real books, Lori created such oddities as, “The Mystery of the Old Silo,” and “Skull Mansion.” Raised in the country with goofy siblings, a few strange neighbors, and many animals, Lori has cemented her own “quirkiness” through a series of unusual factory jobs and a two-year stint in art school. Presently she is working as a graphic artist, while at long last realizing her seemingly impossible dream of becoming a published author of what she calls “off-beat, Midwestern novels.” Acknowledging that most people who hear voices in their head are called schizophrenic, she knows when those voices are put onto paper, assigned names and given personalities, these people are then labeled–writers! Lori believes her novels will resonate with people from both coasts as well as what some may unwittingly call fly-over country. Lori now lives back home in her small town of Wayland, along with a German shepherd named Madeline, and a three-footed kitten named Tippy.
