Up a Dry creek by Avery Flynn ebook Published June 15th 2011 by Evernight Publishing Age Group: Adult (18+) Source: Blog Tour Summary (from Goodreads) Dry Creek has been home to the Layton family for generations, a heritage Claire Layton and her brothers Hank, Chris and Sam all appreciate. Claire is a successful, though somewhat debt-ridden, restaurateur who minds her own business—literally. She has enough on her plate between an irascible chef, an abandoned sous-chef, and the pressure of running her highly praised eatery, Harvest Bistro. But when she discovers one of her customers dead in her dumpster, her world begins to unravel. Even as her County Sheriff brother Hank and his team are still swarming the property looking for evidence, Claire receives a threatening call. It seems there’s a slight problem involving the dead young woman in the dumpster. She doesn’t have her phone and her flash drive with her.

314 Crescent Manor by M. Jones ebook Published May 25th 2010 by Smashwords, Inc. Age Group: YA/Adult CrossoverSource: AuthorSummary (from Goodreads) Mark and Nathan Connor are estranged twins. There is little to connect them, save their current residence at 314 Crescent Manor, an old building situated in the centre of the city. The tenants of the Manor are never housed at random. With its large, brooding stained glass tree bearing down on them from the fifth floor to the first, it watches, and waits for one world to topple into the next. I finished this book 2 days ago, and I am still thinking about it! This book is CRAZY! Crazy doesn’t even begin to cover it actually!

Love at Absolute Zero by Christopher Meeks Paperback, 311 pages Expected publication: September 17th 2011 by White Whisker Books Age Group: Adult Source: ARC from blog tour Buy this Book: Paperback l Kindle(it’s only .99 cents!) Summary (from Goodreads): “Love at Absolute Zero” is about Gunnar Gunderson, a 32-year-old star physicist at the University of Wisconsin. The moment he’s given tenure at the university, he can think of only one thing: finding a wife. His research falters into what happens to matter near absolute zero (−459.67 °F), but he has an instant new plan. To meet his soul mate within three days—that’s what he wants and the time he can carve out—he will use the Scientific Method. Can Gunnar survive his quest? I really enjoyed love at absolute zero. It has been a while since I have read a good contemporary romance/general fiction book. I have been so into paranormal, that it was almost strange to just read about normal people and normal everyday life. But I really liked it. The characters are… Read more »
