Somebody is sending Emlyn Goode a message.

The morning of her wedding day a green 4-by-4 nearly smashes into her car. The driver of a limousine no one hired to take her to the wedding warns she’d be easy to kidnap. On her honeymoon in Florida Roger finds a body in the swimming pool. While she and Roger have drinks with Rebecca Nurse and Harry Woodward at a riverside Naples restaurant somebody shoves her into the river. She’s certain that all of this is connected to a cold case Roger and Harry had worked on. Is she being warned to stay away from that case?

A year earlier Emlyn had seen or heard something that would solve the case. When she tries to recall what it is, the warnings become attempts on her life.


Marin is in real trouble. The president is a figurehead; They split the states into Red and Blue. Kidnapping across state borders of females able to breed is a business. For women of certain bloodlines, having eggs removed and stored while getting a tubal ligation is a safety precaution. Her grandmother told her to get it done. Using a surrogate would be best—she didn’t. Now she’s being delivered to the man who paid to have her kidnapped.
Tanner Eugene Worthington IV suspects his father may plan to kill him. He’s made plans to escape. The woman’s kidnapping brings it all to a head.


Libby Bridgeman, s stringer for the Village Voice, balks when Max Howard, her editor, insists she interview Alicia Kane. Though, campus rebel, a rock superstar and an icon in the 1970s, Kane hasn’t been heard of in forty years. A Brooklyn court case involving a Black Lives Matter protest seems far more relevant. But you don’t say no to Max Howard.
While writing the article about the interview after meeting Kane, Libby receives a call from a detective—Alicia Kane is dead. Accident or suicide, the detective tells her, but Libby believes she was murdered. When Max insists that she drop the story she’s certain he knows more than he’ll tell her.
In Greenwich Village, Chicago, Niagara Falls, a Manhattan recording studio, Libby interviews people who’d known Kane. Like Max, each seems to hide something. A connection to her family? Then, one tumultuous night she learns Alicia Kane’s complete story, and this flips her world.


“Life is short, and it’s up to you to make it sweet.” IT’S ALL ABOUT LOVE WARRINGTON LEGACY BK 1 MARSHA CASPER COOK

It’s All About Love is a sweet, heartwarming story about how love can happen when you least expect it.

After losing the love of his life, Leo Tucker never thought it would be possible to fall in love again. But then he met Gracie Maxwell and happiness seemed to be more than just a possibility—it became reality.

Gracie Maxwell had been hurt so many times before her final conclusion: she was never going to let herself fall in love or even get close to it ever again. But then she met Leo.

Leo was kind and considerate and Gracie thought he was pretty darned wonderful, so unlike anyone she had ever known. So there they were, falling in love with each other. Would they choose each other, or would they decide against the second chance they were both afraid of?

The beauty of this love story will make you laugh, cry, and everything in between as you watch them decide their destiny. Will they find the right path to each other’s heart?

 Great beginning!Reviewed in the United States on April 8, 2021

Leo is the man all men, and I suspect women can admire. He proves old fashioned virtues have a place in modern society and it can’t help make you feel good.
