The Chronicles of Copper Boom: Party Overkill by Tara O’Donnel: “When Kingston Cobre needed a safe hideout from the cops,a rich kid’s birthday bash was last on his list. Lucky for him,a demand for entertainment and his reptilian looks got him an instant invite. That good luck didn’t last long as he wasn’t the only guest with a hidden agenda and special powers…The Chronicles of Copper Boom shows how thin the line is between being a superhero or villain.” (April 2012)
Extra Innings by Bruce E. Spitzer: “The novel resonates with the consequences of the major issues we face in our world today — the steroids debate in sports, global warming and flooding (Fenway is now an island), corporate greed, technology run rampart and the moral ambiguity of war. Most of all, this novel is about second chances and redemption, triumphing over adversity, and the search for meaning in this life and the next. Flawed in his first life, Williams must decide in the second, what’s more important, a chance to win his first World Series, or a chance to be a better man?”
Bitter Veil by Libby Fischer Hellmann: ”It all began with a line of Persian poetry…Anna and Nouri, both studying in Chicago, fall in love despite their very different backgrounds. Anna, who has never been close to her parents, is more than happy to return with Nouri to his native Iran, to be embraced by his wealthy family. Beginning their married life together in 1978, their world is abruptly turned upside down by the overthrow of the Shah, and the rise of the Islamic Republic.” (April 2012)
