Barri Flowers, the bestselling author of young adult novels GHOST GIRL IN SHADOW BAY and DANGER IN TIME comes the first book in an exciting new teen vampire series, COUNT DRACULA'S TEENAGE DAUGHTER. Sixteen year old Kula Lockhart has been living in the town of Harbor Heights, Michigan, for two months now, after moving there with her adopted mom from Cheyenne, Wyoming. She attends Transylvanica High School. It is one of several integrated pilot schools across the country where human and vampire students peacefully coexist. Kula is cool with the human-vampire bonding because she has always believed in equality among the living and the living dead, for that matter. But she is caught completely off guard upon learning that she is the half human daughter of Count Dracula, leader of the oldest and most powerful vampire clan. And that there are some sworn to protect her and others out to get. Someone is killing vampires and Kula fears she may be on the hit list. Staying alive becomes a priority as she adjusts to her birthright. Then there's her human and hot boyfriend, Eriq. Will he accept her for who she is? Or vice versa? Fans of popular teen vampire and paranormal fiction series such as Twilight, True Blood, Vampire Diaries, Vampire Academy, and Vampire Kisses will love COUNT DRACULA'S TEENAGE DAUGHTER.
Murdered in the Man Cave (A Riley Reed Cozy Mystery) (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:38PM
Description: Murdered in the Man Cave is a cozy mystery novel by bestselling crime writer R. Barri Flowers. In the first book in an exciting new cozy series, Riley Reed has a popular blog offering advice on home décor and renovation and does part time consulting in Cozy Pines, Oregon. When Riley is asked by an old flame, Brent London, a bestselling mystery writer, to help him spruce up his man cave as a newly single man, she readily accepts the assignment. But when she discovers him bludgeoned to death with a pool stick in his man cave, she finds herself thrust into the investigation to track down the killer. The suspects are many, including three of Brent’s four ex-wives, two girlfriends, his niece, a former research assistant, a financial advisor, and his housekeeper. When one of them is arrested for Brent’s murder, Riley is less than convinced that the true culprit is in custody, and makes it her mission to prove otherwise. An alleged suicide and confession seems a bit too pat for Riley, who risks her own life to get at the truth. Fans of cozy mysteries will find Murdered in the Man Cave the perfect start to an entertaining and all-consuming cozy series.

1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:32PM
Description: MURDER IN MAUI: A Leila Kahana Mystery is an original police procedural medical mystery novel set in the lush, deceptively idyllic tropical paradise of Hawaii. Available in eBook and audio. Maui County homicide detective and composite sketch artist Leila Kahana and partner Detective Sergeant Blake Seymour investigate the execution-style murder of two prominent doctors in an upscale condominium. Larry Nagasaka and Elizabeth Racine are found lying naked in bed in a pool of their own blood. It is learned that they are married, but not to each other, and that the doctors belong to a prestigious medical association. Assisting the detectives in the case are fellow members of the homicide squad, Detectives Trent Ferguson and Rachel Lancaster, run by Lieutenant Paul Ortega who is contemplating retirement. As they interview suspects and collect evidence, more doctors belonging to the medical association are murdered, making it clear to all that they have a ruthless and determined serial killer on their hands. "A police procedural of the highest order, mixing equal parts Sue Grafton and Jeffrey Deaver with sprinkling of Patricia Cornwall." --Jon Land, Internationally Acclaimed, Bestselling Author of STRONG JUSTICE and STRONG ENOUGH TO DIE "Vivid details of police procedure one would expect from top criminologist. A gripping novel in what promises to be outstanding series." --Douglas Preston, New York Times Bestselling Author and Co-creator of the PENDERGAST series of novels.
