When Ghosts Come Home
“Only Wiley Cash’s exquisite storytelling could turn a story full of sad and depressing topics into a powerful, beautiful and meaningful story. It is the story of Sheriff Winston Barnes, the longtime sheriff of the small community of Oak Island, NC who is up for re-election and doubts that he will win. It is the story of how something in his past still haunts him and because of that he always tries to do the right thing, not what everyone wants or expects him to do, it is the story of his family and how much they mean to each other, it is a story of the racial unrest in the area in the 80s. And it is also a mystery which starts when a ghost plane and the dead body of a young black resident of Oak Island are found at the small airport and ends with a totally surprising outcome. The narration was as beautiful as the writing and I couldn't stop listening.”Nancy, Fiction Addiction
Small Things Like These
“A small moving book about generosity, history, family and religion. Perfect for the holiday season when gratitude is on our minds. Bill Furlong didn’t come from much, but he had a benefactor. As he learns what is really happening in the “laundry” where young women end up, his memories of kindness move him to action. A quiet read that shows the power of a moral compass.”Andrea, Bookstore1Sarasota

Who is Maud Dixon?
“I really liked this book until the ending, and then I absolutely loved it. You will ask yourself several times who is the victim and who is the villain.”Nancy, Fiction Addiction
“A novel within a novel, a plot within a plot, a very realistic and informative look at authors, how they write, how they think, and how they try to be faithful to what they believe: that a good story must be told, even if it is not really yours to tell. Jake Finch Bonner genuinely believes that a story idea can not be stolen–after all there are only so many plots and they have been told repeatedly by many authors. It is how you tell the story, the words you use and the feelings you bring forth that make it the authors. However, when Jake, after years of struggling to get another book published writes a huge bestseller there is someone out in the world who does not think an author has the right to write anyone else’s story. What starts out as a slow but methodical look at Jake’s approach to being an author, his dreams, his aspirations and his beliefs, turns into a fast-paced story about what a person will do to keep their secrets and to punish someone who they think stole a story that he had no right to write.”Nancy, Fiction Addiction
Madhouse at the End of the Earth
The Belgica's Journey into the Dark Antarctic Night
“What I love about polar expedition stories is imagining surviving the same situation. Madhouse at the End of the Earth is a fascinating study of chasing fame at any cost and the price paid when things go horribly wrong. A worthy addition to the canon of polar expedition history.”Tom Beans, Dudley's Bookshop Cafe

If you enjoyed The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, then you’ll love Once Upon a Wardrobe.
“8 year old, sickly George begs his sister Meg, a student at Oxford, to find and ask C.S. Lewis where the idea of Narnia came from. This charming novel is a testament to the power of stories. Those who enjoy The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe will feel like they are wrapped in a warm blanket before a lovely fire as they are transported to the magical world of Narnia.”Melanie, Bookstore1Sarasota

The Stranger Diaries
“I love Elly Griffiths' series so was thrilled to see she had a new standalone and I was not disappointed. The book starts with the haunting reading of a Gothic Victorian ghost story called The Stranger by R.M. Holland. The main character, Claire, is a high school Eng. Teacher who teaches at a school which includes the old Holland house and R.M.’s study which has been kept as he left it. Claire is also researching Holland’s life for a possible book so is intimately familiar with his work. When people in the English department start dying a line from Holland’s book – Hell is Empty - is left at the crime scenes. Not only does The Stranger have a major part in this fabulous modern day Gothic style mystery but so do Claire’s personal diaries. I loved everything about this book – the way it was told from 3 perspectives, the way Holland’s story and Claire’s diaries kept coming into play and all of the creepy hints at white witchcraft and ghosts. And I especially loved the voice of the reader of The Stranger.”Nancy, Fiction Addiction
