What people are saying: "Sometimes a reader needs to curl up with a deliciously good book and disappear from their own world for awhile. Murder Caribbean-Style spirited me away into a world that oozed with the charms of such exotic locations as Barbados, St. Thomas, Sint Maarten and Puerto Rico. Diane Rapp offers a gift to her readers: She whets an adventurer's appetite with zesty, vivid descriptions of fascinating out-of-the-way places at each port, sites that are unknown to many tourists. We are treated to descriptions of not only the duties of personnel on a cruise ship but, more so, their very human nuances." Review by Doreen Cox. Book Description: When Kayla Sanders accepts a free Caribbean cruise aboard the Aurora, she gets sucked into a modern-day mutiny culminating in the murder of her ex-lover, Patrick MacIntyre. When Kayla was denied a well-deserved promotion, she resigned. Kayla's shipboard friends applauded her bravery, but she knew the truth. Reeling from the painful humiliation inflicted by an unfaithful lover, Kayla welcomed an excuse to run home and hide. Living like a hermit in Colorado she worked days as a typist and wrote a Caribbean guidebook at night. Four years later, Kayla arrives on board her old ship and savors the VIP treatment afforded a published author-until Patrick falls dead at her feet. Plunging into a frenzied investigation to discover the killer before police arrest her friends, Kayla bumps into Steven Young every time she uncovers a clue. They soon join forces to unravel the mystery and spark a fledgling romance. Like a tightrope walker balancing between passion and peril, Kayla risks her life to unearth the truth behind Patrick's death and free herself from his memory. Should she trust Steven and risk another broken heart-or worse?

If Grace Cassidy had known she was going to find a naked corpse in her hotel bed, lose every penny she had in the world, and encounter zany characters straight from the Mad Hatter's tea party, she might have kept her usual poise when she spotted husband Charlie's mistress at their business convention in San Francisco. She wouldn't have left in a temper to drive up the northern California coast. She certainly wouldn't have stopped at an obscure bed and breakfast called Wimberly Place-or become the prime suspect in a murder investigation.

Sylvia's Secret is a fast-paced psychological murder mystery set mostly in London and Devon during mid-December. Based on several years of research, this fictional work weaves historical information into a dark and intriguing plot that explores Sylvia Plath's struggle with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, as well as the actual circumstances of her death. The research has unearthed a little-known fact about Plath that, when revealed, may provide answers not just for those interested in the tragic author of The Bell Jar, but also for anyone who suffers with depression and mental illness. Rated PG14 for some strong language, light sensuality, and adult themes. "Scott Evans knows all about the collisions between the literary, commercial, and academic worlds and he blends them seamlessly in this intriguing tale of trust, betrayal, and redemption." - John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author known for his series of legal and crime thrillers featuring the characters Dismas Hardy, Abe Glitsky and Wyatt Hunt. "Nothing is ever as it seems and mental aberrations are sometimes mirrors across time. This is a fine continuation of the Joe Conrad saga, and it will confuse and delight." - David Lloyd Sutton, reviewer for the Sacramento and SF Book Reviews
