When they say, “you can't go home again," they're talking about Mina Calvi, twenty-something Italian transplant to California. Still, nursing a broken heart, desperate to discover her place in the world, Mina arrives in the town of her birth in Veneto, Italy. In the decade she's been gone, the village nestled at the foot of the Dolomites has changed much, yet remained oddly the same. Friends have moved on, family members passed away. Mina feels even more alone in her motherland than in America, and there seem to be too many bizarre deaths for such a tiny, serene village. Then a fresh chance at true love and a welcome bonding with a dear new friend give her hope. But the deadly secrets moldering in the centuries-old cemetery could rip it all from her and leave Mina emptier than before. Will she find herself or lose her heart again? Can Mina survive her Italian Summer?
The truth will set you free...

Youâ€™ve been punched in the face. Youâ€™re disoriented. Everythingâ€™s a blur. The killer throws you into a body bag and zips you up inside. What will you do?
Zoelle Spencer is divorced and looking for love. While working as a water fitness instructor at the local rec center, she meets several eligible bachelors including a handsome firefighter and several men in the Corvette club. One of them is a serial killer and has his sights set on her.
Every five years, Franklin Wayne Bannock hunts for a new â€śMary Bethâ€ť to torture, kill, and encase in a heavy-duty body bag for induction into his Forever Breathless collection. Two weeks before the class of 1975 was slated to graduate from high school, Wayne committed his first murder by killing the secret love of his life, Mary Beth Huntsman. Shortly thereafter, he moved. After changing his name and altering his appearance, in the spring of 1981 he returned to his hometown to celebrate his first murder with a ritualistic killing of a woman he named Mary Beth, 1981.
Intelligent and charismatic, for thirty-five years Bannock has eluded law enforcement and believes he will never be caught. With his fortieth class reunion just around the corner, heâ€™s on the prowl for his next victim, Mary Beth, 2016.
Bannock is particular about his Mary Beths. He seeks an attractive single woman about his same age. She must have long auburn hair, work at a job dealing with the public, and be easily manipulated by flattery. Zoelle Spencer fits his criteria.

The pastor's wife is missing! Is the escaped felon to blame?
Whether living in a rectory, manse or parsonage, life married to a small town minister calls for faith, hope, and charity; plus heaping helpings of tact and the skin of a rhinoceros.
New to this life in the small coastal town of Bannoch, Oregon, Naidenne Davidson turns for support to her fellow ministers' wives of The First Ladies Club.
The women share sympathy, friendship and tips on dealing with difficult church members, but when tall, shapely Naidenne catches the eye of an escaped killer, the Club goes beyond mere friendship.
Step into the quaint parlor of the drafty Bannoch Community Fellowship parsonage, nibble a Snickerdoodle, sip your tea from a chipped china cup and share the adventure. Although some scenes may be too intense for the traditional cozy, rest assured, Gentle Reader, evil gets its just desserts and good will prevail.
Part-time realtor and full-time pastor's wife, Naidenne Davidson, is too busy coping with life in a small town church parsonage to think about her beauty, let alone imagine what sort of jealousy, envy or desire she is inspiring in the hearts of those around her.
Distracted by efforts to fulfill her new duties as unpaid pastoral assistant, Naidenne is caught off guard and no match for the sociopathic killer who abducts her, bent on living out his basest desires.
After two suspicious deaths and three disappearances in the small seaside community, law enforcement officials concentrate their suspicions on Naidenne's husband, Scott.
Have the pressures of the pastorate driven Scott to do something terrible? Or are the authorities wasting precious time, with Naidenne's life hanging in the balance?
When even members of Scott's congregation begin to wonder about his guilt, can Naidenne's friends in the First Ladies Club, help? Can these women of diverse denominations, ethnicity, cultures and ages put aside their differences and work in harmony to find her?
Old friend, Bunny Elder Banks, arrives from Texas to join the search, but is it already too late?

A novel of character-driven, literary fiction, action, and adventure of a man who finds his purpose in life. The Dream Messiah series takes you on a wild journey from the forests and mountains of Alaska to the jungle of Borneo. This epic saga draws inspiration from Lawrence and Lorne Blair's 'Ring of Fire,' the psychological portraits and action from the writings of Jack London, Joseph Conrad, and Daniel Defoe, with the mystic elements from Carlos Castaneda's Yaqui sorcerer Don Juan.
Jake Barnes hitchhiked to Alaska to build his dream-a cabin in the wilderness, but he never lost his desire for revenge on those who've wronged him. His biggest fear, other than the grizzly bear stalking him, is the mental afflictions and psychotic episodes that run in his family. The harder he fights, the more he loses as he finds his life and grasp of reality is spinning out of control. His sourdough, survivalist neighbor, Dave, tells Jake of a primitive, nomadic tribe, the Punan Dyaks, on the island of Borneo. Their prophecy is that messiah that will come to them through their dreams-or is it just the ramblings of another Alaskan derelict? Everyone has advice for Jake on how to handle his strong-willed fiance, Kat. After their child is born, Kat has her own agenda. Dave advises the path of ruthless action to counteract the doubt and self-pity Jake is sliding into.
As he learns the consequences of his decisions, more than one person wants Jake Barnes to burn in hell, another hand is guiding him into baptism by fire. He knows that once he crosses that line, there is no turning back.

She loves to push Raja's buttons with the hipster lingo she is constantly picking up on the internet. Despite her teasing, Vinny is Raja's best friend.
