#Win The Summer That Melted Everything by Tiffany McDaniel (US) (51)

Fielding Bliss has never forgotten the summer of 1984: the year a heat wave scorched Breathed, Ohio. The year he became friends with the devil. Sal seems to appear out of nowhere - a bruised and tattered thirteen-year-old boy claiming to be the devil himself answering an invitation. Fielding Bliss, the son of a local prosecutor, brings him home where he's welcomed into the Bliss family, assuming he's a runaway from a nearby farm town. When word spreads that the devil has come to Breathed, not everyone is happy to welcome this self-proclaimed fallen angel. Murmurs follow him and tensions rise, along with the temperatures as an unbearable heat wave rolls into town right along with him. As strange accidents start to occur, riled by the feverish heat, some in the town start to believe that Sal is exactly who he claims to be. While the Bliss family wrestles with their own personal demons, a fanatic drives the town to the brink of a catastrophe that will change this sleepy Ohio backwa…

The Secret Language of Stones by M.J. Rose #Excerpt

M.J. ROSE grew up in New York City mostly in the labyrinthine galleries of the Metropolitan Museum, the dark tunnels and lush gardens of Central Park and reading her mother's favorite books before she was allowed. She is the author of more than a dozen novels, the co-president and founding board member of International Thriller Writers, and the founder of the first marketing company for authors: AuthorBuzz.com. She lives in Greenwich, Connecticut.







As World War I rages and the Romanov dynasty reaches its sudden, brutal end, a young jewelry maker discovers love, passion, and her own healing powers in this rich and romantic ghost story, the perfect follow-up to M.J. Rose’s “brilliantly crafted” (Providence Journal) novel The Witch of Painted Sorrows.

Nestled within Paris’s historic Palais Royal is a jewelry store unlike any other. La Fantasie Russie is owned by Pavel Orloff, protégé to the famous Faberge, and is known by the city’s fashion elite as the place to find the rarest of gemst…

Armoires and Arsenic by Cassie Page (50)

Idyllic, Darling Valley was, or so Olivia thought when she first saw the pristine town nestled in the hills outside of San Francisco. Just the place to begin over. Away from crazy LA, her hectic architectural design business, and Brooks Baker, world renowned architect and the man who broke her heart. Even the name, Darling Valley, promised peace, quiet, and the promise of a fabulous makeover for her career. The blogs called it Billionaire Hollow, because Darling Valley was home to the largest contingent of billionaires in the world. They built their weekend mansions high in the hills overlooking the town, and Olivia planned to make a killing decorating them. 

Until a killing of another kind appeared on her doorstep. 

Get to know Olivia M. Granville, OMG for short, her bizarrely couture-minded friend Tuesday, her adorable sidekick, Cody, the handsome Detective Richards, and the saints and scoundrels of Darling Valley. Along the way, see if you can figure out who put the deadly surprise i…
