First Degree Innocence

BWL Publishing Inc.


Carrie Lang’s sheltered life ends with a prison sentence for involvement in a bank robbery. Her arrest comes on the day she’s called in sick and stayed inside, so she can’t explain how an eye-witness describes her in great detail, down to the make and model of her car. A terrible mistake has been made, and her insistence of innocence falls on deaf ears.

First book I have read by this author, excellent read. This book was randomly picked. Outcome for some of the people was not what I expected, but was good. Will recommend this book to friends and family.

I really enjoyed MURPHY'S LAW. Kat Attalla has penned an exciting, fast-paced read that I couldn't put down. Brilliant!"

Like most authors, I didn't start out as a writer, but rather as a reader. My passion for romance novels began in my late teens and left me with an itch to discover the world. After living in places as culturally diverse as Athens, Greece and Cairo, Egypt (where I met and married my own romantic hero) we returned to the states. From a very young age, I showed an aptitude for telling stories. Of course my mother called me a pathological liar, but I prefer to think back on those days as an apprenticeship for my future craft.

Unredeemed

BWL Publishing Inc.


Just when everything is going well in her life, researcher Jamee Blair is forced to become an amateur detective after the live-in caregiver hired for her sister’s medical crisis, vanishes. To track down the truth of the missing caregiver, Jamee enlists the help of modern day highlander, Samuel Craig, a politician appointed investigator into human trafficking links to international organized crime. Together, Jamee and Sam embark on a disturbing search for Odessa and, as the mystery unfolds, they find themselves navigating the twists and turns of Canada’s seedy underground immigration. Jamee’s comedy filled one-line zingers, aimed to keep Sam at arms distance, become a second chance at happiness. When a casino chip is found with the body, Sam suspects more than a simple homicide, and when a second crime scene is discovered on a suburban Calgary beach, the search leads to so much more. In this romantic thriller, the unlikely pair uncover a conspiracy that involves murder, assassins, spies and espionage.

---

J M Dolan's debut novel is a gripping thriller full of surprises mixed with a good dollop of humour. Although it deals with the unsavoury subject of human trafficking Dolan handles the content with aplomb.

---

Writing contemporary romantic suspense, JM Dolan began on an old borrowed typewriter for extra credits in high school. With a love of reading and an insatiable curiosity, storytelling came naturally. JM says even as a child creative thought became stories played through the mind like a movie. Devoted to family and community, hard work and perseverance, JM has travelled and sought personal development in a variety of careers. According to JM Dolan life should have humour, a punch of mystery and of course love.

Worst Case, We Get Married

Book*hug Press


Aïcha lives with her mother in Montreal's Centre-Sud neighbourhood. She's only thirteen but claims to be older. She has never known her father, and resents her mother for leaving Hakim, her stepfather. Her only friends are Mel and Jo, two local prostitutes, and Baz, a musician in his twenties, who comes to her rescue one day and with whom she proceeds to fall in love. Her impossible love for Baz, her precociousness and her rebellious streak come together into an explosive cocktail. Raw and heartrending, Worst Case, We Get Married is the statement Aïcha gives to a social worker.

From acclaimed Québécois writer Sophie Bievenu, and translated by JC Sutcliffe, comes Worst Case, We Get Married, a powerful and moving coming-of-age novel. Originally published in French in 2011 as Et au pire, on se mariera, the novel was adapted into a film by Bienvenu and Léa Pool in 2017.

"Sophie Bienvenu gets inside the head of a whip-smart, lovesick teenager whose fantasy life bleeds into her reality to chilling effect. Listen to her story and be seduced (and horrified). Worst Case, We Get Married is Quebec lit at its best." —Neil Smith, author of Boo

---

"Sophie Bienvenu has given us a real tour de force: the subject matter is deep and heavy, but the book itself is a page turner. Her writing is fluid and captures the adolescent voice with painful accuracy." --mamereetaithipster

"A moving and poignant story in which truth gets tangled up with one teenager's overflowing imagination." &mdashLes libraries

---

Sophie Bienvenu was born in Belgium. After studying visual communication in Paris, she moved to Quebec in 2001 and quickly established herself as a successful blogger.

She is also the author of two other novels, Chercher Sam (2014), and Autour d'elle (2016), and the poetry collection, Ceci n'est pas de l'amour (2016). She has also written books for children and teens, including the popular YA series, (k). Bienvenu lives in Montreal.

S. Peters-Davis writes multi-genre stories, but loves penning a good page-turning suspense-thriller, especially when it’s a ghost story and a romance. When she’s not writing, editing, or reading, she’s hiking, RV’ing, fishing, playing with grandchildren, or enjoying time with her favorite muse (her husband) in Southwest Michigan.

Reading has always been my favorite hobby. However, I have many other interests. I am also an artist. I do pencil drawings, mostly portraits. I dabble a bit in colour but prefer my pencils. I’ve been commissioned to do a couple of portraits and have donated a portrait in a silent auction to help raise money for a local family who lost everything in a fire.

Voted Out

BWL Publishing Inc.


Liliane’s mind is reeling, not from the ramifications of her secret love affair, but from the unethical behavior, the blackmail, and the extortion taking place in the election office. Coaxed into exercising damage control and assuming responsibilities beyond her role as finance officer, Liliane longs to spend time in her art studio, but when election officers begin to vanish and die, she cannot dismiss the events unfolding around her and her lover. To unravel the mysteries and protect the integrity of the election, Liliane risks her reputation, her heart, and her life.

---

This is an intriguing look at election shenanigans in a remote section of Canada. I so hope it’s not based in reality! But it is a good read, and enjoyable for non-Canadians too.
