Everley Donovan’s mission: retrieve the hallowed sword of Avelyn stolen by the wicked Prince Killian, who slayed her family and left her for dead.

She has set sail with a rogue crew for the otherworlds, where the key to dethroning the prince lies deep within the Land Under the Wave.

But passage through these unknown seas—where horrors lurk and pirates rove—proves a treacherous gamble. The Land Under the Wave was not made for humans, particularly one with a fragile clock heart. Here, Everley’s tragic past resurfaces unsolved questions. Here, too, the prince has hidden secrets more precious than pearls, secrets that could fracture the future forevermore.

More Than One Truth by Matt Benson

More Than One Truth by Matt  BensonA unique take on the legal thriller, this book blends elements of psychological suspense and covers dark themes. Designed to be a quick, breezy, suspenseful read, the book has been enjoyed by enough readers that I'd like to reach a broader audience. I hope you enjoy!

SHORT:
The story of an idealistic young attorney who must defend a childhood acquaintance from murder while receiving guidance from his mentor's ghost.

LONG:
After a series of personal tragedies, a young attorney returns home and takes a job with a charismatic criminal defense attorney known for reckless behavior. After yet another tragedy strikes and John dies, the attorney must take on his first murder case alone. His client is Scotty Watts, a former high classmate and sports superstar turned jail bird. Scotty professes his innocence and remembers nothing about the night in question other than waking up in a pool of blood to sheriff's deputies pounding on his door.

Despite a mountain of evidence pointing to Scotty's guilt, the narrator works earnestly to exonerate him. But while he investigates the case, it becomes harder and harder to separate fact from fiction, and his mind starts to unravel. Filled with conspiracy theories, twists, turns, and eleventh-hour evidentiary discoveries, More Than One Truth leads to a climax that shocks to the core.

Themes include: the difficulty of returning home, shattered idealism, and the pernicious effect of loneliness.

Good luck!

Lies We Tell Mothers by Suzy Quinn

Lies We Tell Mothers by Suzy QuinnBestselling author of the Bad Mother books Suzy K Quinn reveals the truth behind the lies we tell mothers, one sleepless night at a time.

Suzy and Demi were carefree twenty-somethings. They had fun! They didn’t have responsibilities! And then they decided to have a baby. Goodbye lazy weekends, hello sleepless nights, arguments and an addiction to industrial-strength hot chocolate.

In the midst of this major life change, Suzy discovered that most parenting advice should be taken with a pinch of salt—or ten.

For example:

#1 Lie—Just go with your mother’s instinct. But what if your instinct is telling you to hide under the stairs?

#10 Lie—Your new baby will tell you what it needs. Not if it can’t talk it won’t.

#23 Lie—You should never bribe your children. You will ALWAYS bribe your children.

Follow Suzy on the ultimate make-over—from nervous-wreck new mother to happy families. In this hilarious and refreshingly honest account for parents who prefer the realistic to the utopian, Suzy debunks the myths and takes us all along for the (bumpy) ride.
