There is much to love and hate about the iconic pitcher “Pedro”. He was one of the most effective pitchers in the history of the game and was known for his unstoppable drive and often abrasive arrogance. With confidence and honesty, he lays all his cards on the table for both fans and detractors. ~ Reviewed by Jonathan Fine

Perfect under-the-covers Gothic thriller for readers with strong nerves. Orphans Molly and Kip are new servants in the manor house, where muddy footprints each morning show the passage of the mysterious “night man,” and their employers grow weaker day by day. Atmospheric and spooky! ~ Reviewed by Jennifer Armstrong

Six girls adopted as babies are each given a clue to their heritage when the man who raised them dies. Loosely tied to the stories of the stars in the Pleiades constellation this first book follows the story of oldest daughter Maia to Brazil. Detailed and atmospheric, there is just the right amount of mystery, romance and history to keep both historic fiction fans and romance readers happy. ~ Reviewed by Jennifer Canfield

The lilt and the cadence of this one of a kind gem is Irish music for the mind. All of the characters are dead- yet they continue their bickering and bantering in the underworld as if existence was a circular phenomenon...past, present and future. A delightful and revealing look at humanity and the enchanting and exasperating nature of the Irish. ~ Reviewed by Karen Frank
