A Spell of Murder, by Clea Simon
Becca, newly single and newly unemployed, wants to believe she has psychic powers. With nothing but time--and a desire for empowerment--she's studying to become a witch. What she doesn't know is that her three cats--Harriet, Laurel, and Clara--are the ones with the real power. And when Harriet--"a cream-colored longhair with more fur than commonsense"--conjures a pillow for her own comfort, Becca believes her spells are finally working. Could that be why Trent, the coven's devilishly handsome leader, has been showing her special attention? Or why Suzanne, a longtime coven member, draws her aside to share a secret--a confidence that may lead to murder?--From the dust jacket.
The Widows, by Jess Montgomery
Kinship, Ohio, 1924: When Lily Ross learns that her husband, Daniel, the town's widely respected sheriff, has been killed in an apparent accident while transporting a prisoner, she vows to seek the truth about his death. Hours after his funeral, a stranger appears at her door. Marvena Whitcomb, a coal miner's widow, is unaware that Daniel has died and begs to speak with him about her missing daughter. From miles away but worlds apart, Lily's and Marvena's lives collide as they realize that Daniel was perhaps not the man either of them believed him to be. Inspired by the true story of Ohio's first female sheriff, Jess Montgomery's powerful, lyrical debut is the story of two women who take on murder and corruption at the heart of their community.--From the dust jacket.
Her One Mistake, by Heidi Perks
Charlotte was supposed to be looking after the children--she swears she was. She only took her eyes off them for one moment. But when her three kids are all safe and sound at the school fair and Alice, her best friend Harriet's daughter, is nowhere to be found, Charlotte panics. Frantically searching everywhere, Charlotte knows she must find the courage to tell Harriet that her beloved only child is missing. And admit she's solely to blame. Harriet, devastated by this unthinkable, unbearable loss, can no longer bring herself to speak to Charlotte, much less trust her. Now, more isolated than ever and struggling to keep her marriage afloat, Harriet believes nothing and no one. But as the police bear down on both women, trying to piece together the puzzle of what happened to this little girl, dark secrets begin to surface--and Harriet discovers that confiding in Charlotte may be the only thing that will reunite her with her daughter...--From the dust jacket.
48 Hours, by William R. Forstchen
In less that forty-eight hours, Earth will be hit by a major solar storm, and the countdown is on. It is not just a coronal mass ejection (CME) that would severely damage our world's electrical infrastructure, but something far more frightening. The sun is about to unleash a far more lethal solar explosion. Richard Carrington, NASA's famed solar scientist, is the man who discovered this impending cataclysm. Now Carrington must create a plan to confront a disaster that could prove as devastating as the asteroid strike that exterminated the dinosaurs. Carrington is racing against the clock. He has only forty-eight hours.--From the dust jacket.
