Okay, I was RIGHT!!! The caterpillars were too small to be getting ready for their chrysalis form. They were actually doing something completely different. I really thought I was the ultimate helicopter mom with last year’s Monarchs, but I missed a lot. You can check out the update on my little striped babies on my blog Pollen patch by clicking here.

Atlanta. 1983. Holy Week.
Operatives are disappearing.
The tight-knit Lux Corporation has been compromised and an unknown assailant is issuing ultimatums from afar.
No one knows who it is. No one knows who to trust and all the agents along the eastern seaboard have gone dark.
There is one man left. A former field agent who is now a code breaker. Winston Worsley.
Sent on a mission he doesn’t want, he bullrushes his way through Atlanta in a maze of deception, deceit, and gripping drama to discover who is behind the killings and how they can be stopped.
In this prequel to Alexandria Rising, we take an adventure with Winston, the willowy assassin Mary Celest, and find out why Winston’s relationship to Rand O’Neal’s family runs so deep.
In another stroke of lyrical prose blended with believable action, author Mark Wallace Maguire keeps us glued to the page in his fourth book of this saga.

Welcome to Planet Lara: Book One

FREE for a limited time

“There are… stipulations on your inheritance, Ms. Clarke.”

Lara J. Clarke is used to getting her own way. Motherless at ten and raised by her oft-absent eco-warrior/philanthropist grandfather, she lives the high life afforded by her seemingly bottomless trust fund — swanky downtown Vancouver loft, apartments and villas around the world just a chartered flight away, a passport overflowing with stamps from the chicest hot spots, a closet bursting with catwalk couture, and a spoiled B-list actor boyfriend whose interest in Lara is tied to her exclusive L’Inconnu wallet.

That is, until Grandfather Archibald sheds his mortal coil in a very public manner, and Lara’s privileged life is set adrift — and headed for a collision course with the gorgeous, private Thalia Island off the coast of British Columbia. According to the will, Lara will step into the role of Project Administrator, wherein she has one year to fulfill her late grandfather’s dream of a self-sustaining, eco-friendly, family-centered utopia.

The stakes are real: fail, and lose access to the family fortune — forever.

Convinced Thalia Island will be an extension of the heiress lifestyle she’s long led, Lara is surprised to find her new coworkers — and neighbors — aren’t as pliable as the underlings of her former life. Even with the hunky lead engineer Finan Rowleigh showing her the ropes, Lara quickly learns just how unprepared she is to trade her Louboutins for steel-toed Timberlands.

When a series of calamities reveals a sinister element undermining the security of the island and her residents, Lara and Finan must reach beyond their job descriptions to protect Archibald’s precious utopia from those who would do her harm.

And while keeping her late grandfather’s flame alight, Lara finds her own flame burning hot for a charming, kind man who wants nothing from her but her heart.

Genre: Suspense | Mystery

FREE for a limited time

In a flash, she had magic. Can she use it to solve a mysterious death in her family?

Climbing a tree in a thunderstorm was always going to be a stupid idea, but when Evelyn Eldritch is struck by lightning, her magical powers are switched on. And she didn’t even know she was a witch!

When Evelyn learns that her biological mother has died under suspicious circumstances, she makes a journey to the quaint village of Maiden-Upon-Avon, where the residents consist of werewolves, witches, vampires and one annoyingly handsome-yet-gruff policeman. But who should she suspect? Who can she trust?

And if juggling her magical training, her mother’s café, and the town’s eccentric residents wasn’t enough, another body turning up at the local cricket match shows she’s definitely in well over her pointed hat…

Murder at Magic Cakes Café is the first book in the adorable English Village Witch Cozy series, set in the beautiful English countryside. If you love plucky heroines, small-town whodunits, and a touch of retro nostalgia, then you’ll love Rosie Reed’s fun and flirty tale.
