Blood Moon by [Bethel, John David] (e-book from John David Bethel)

Publisher: Tell-Tale Publishing Group, LLC (4th December 2016)

On a hot, steamy afternoon in Miami, Cuban-American businessman Recidio Suarez is brutally beaten and abducted. Handcuffed, shackled and blindfolded, he has no idea why he has been targeted. What he discovers is heart-stopping. What he endures during almost a month of captivity compares only to the most horrendous stories of prisoners of war. He is tortured, and under the threat of death, and worse – the rape of his wife and torture of his children – Suarez is forced to hand over his multi-million dollar holdings to his captors.

Suarez survives and then spends the next few months staying one step ahead of the murderous pack. During this time, he and his lawyer, Nolan Stevens – a former Special Agent in Charge of the Miami Office of the FBI – are having difficulties convincing the Miami-Dade Police Department that a crime has been committed. Their efforts are complicated by Steven’s difficult history with the head of the MDPD Special Investigations Division, who is not interested in pursuing the case.

The Missing by [Eriksson, Caroline] (Kindle first Prime member freebie)

Publisher: AmazonCrossing (1st January 2017)

An ordinary outing takes Greta, Alex, and four-year-old Smilla across Sweden’s mythical Lake Malice to a tiny, isolated island. While father and daughter tramp into the trees, Greta stays behind in the boat, lulled into a reverie by the misty, moody lake…only later to discover that the two haven’t returned. Her frantic search proves futile. They’ve disappeared without a trace.

Greta struggles to understand their eerie vanishing. She desperately needs to call Alex, to be reassured that Smilla is safe, or contact the police. But now her cell phone is missing too. Back at her cottage, she finds it hidden away under the bedsheets. Had she done that? Or had someone else been in the cottage? But who, and why? As Greta struggles to put the pieces together, she fears that her past has come back to torment her, or she’s finally lost her grip on reality…

In this dark psychological thrill ride—with more twists than a labyrinth and more breathless moments than a roller coaster—Greta must confront what she’s always kept hidden if she has any hope of untangling the truth.

A sparkling feel-good Christmas comedy, which asks the question – how far would you go to get your child the must-have Christmas toy?

It’s December 1992, and children are going crazy for the Tracy Island toy – almost as crazy as the parents! Christmas day is fast approaching and Coco Pinchard is desperately trying to track one down for her four-year-old son Rosencrantz.

Throw into the mix a horrible boss, a lazy husband, and the prospect of her in-laws arriving for the festivities, and Coco wishes she could cancel Christmas and sail off to a desert island somewhere – preferably with the gorgeous-yet-unattainable Tom from work.

But retail therapy is at hand! Coco’s faithful friends Chris and Marika rally round, and even her mother-in-law Ethel tries to help in her own eccentric way.

From dodgy dealings in a motorway lay-by, to extreme shopping in Hamley’s with a Sylvanian Families fanatic, to having a go at the Blue Peter make-your-own Tracy Island, Coco tries everything in the hope that Rosencrantz will open his must-have toy on Christmas morning.

Tom Shepherd has been made redundant.

While his wife Anne works all hours trying and make up for the lost income, he hangs around the market, in Newcastle.

But everything changes when he meets Ellie Ferguson, a beautiful girl much younger than Tom.

Ellie is an aspiring writer, and convinces Tom that he should take a writing course.

Tom is grateful for his newfound passion and spends his days writing and editing with Ellie.

But there’s no denying the physical attraction between the two and it would seem that neither of them can resist.

Tom continues to balance his home life with Anne and his torrid affair with Ellie. Christmas has come early for Tom – he loves writing, loves his wife, and loves his exciting, physical relationship with Ellie.

But Ellie starts to suspect Tom is not all that he seems, when she asks him about joining her for Christmas Day.

Caught in a web of his own lies, he desperately tries to hang on to his double life.

But when Anne starts taking a closer look at Tom’s writing assignments, she finds endless notes from Ellie and her worst fear is realised.

Tom’s last assignment asks him to write his autobiography. But this means reliving a past he has been running from for years.
But in telling the truth about his past, will he be able to save his future?

All I Want For Christmas is a story of love, lust, betrayal and forgiveness, all set against the magical backdrop of Christmas.
