Atlanta Bones by Ken McKea: “Atlanta Bones is a hard-edged Florida thriller relieved by humor and spiced with exotic locations. In the best-selling tradition of John D. MacDonald, Carl Hiassen, and Randy Wayne White, it rips through a plot involving a rich man who is presumed dead, his not-so-grieving widow, and a reluctant, tough adventurer.” (July 2012)

The Beach by Jaye Frances: ”Alan loves the beach. More than a weekend respite, it is his home, his refuge, his sanctuary. And for most of the year, he strolls the sand in blissful solitude, letting nature—and no one else—touch him. But spring has given way to summer, and soon, the annual invasion of vacationers and tourists will subdivide the beach with blankets, umbrellas, and chairs, depriving Alan of his privacy and seclusion—the fundamental touchstones of his life. Resigned to endure another seasonal onslaught of beach-goers, Alan believes there is nothing he can do but prepare for the worst. But fate has other plans.” (August 2012)

The Blue Hours by Lillian Ann Slugocki: “Once passionate lovers, their relationship launched on the buoyant tide of youth, sex, and endless possibility, Eva and her husband have entered a strange and barren country. A decade later, as the marriage has turned cold and her husband begins an affair with a beautiful younger woman, Eva embarks on a series of passionate one-night stands of her own, both mystified and exhilarated by her reckless behavior.” (August 2012)
