Brad only wants to protect those flying from one place to another, to make up for not being able to protect his wife and daughter. They were on the first aircraft to strike the twin towers on 9/11. Cali seems to have it all—her most recent book gave her the celebrity status she once thought was so important but nothing can penetrate the grief she feels after losing her husband. Dex, the guy in high school that scored more than any other guy, seeks vengeance for all that’s gone wrong in his life.
Three individuals living life alone while the world whirls around them. Can they overcome their pasts and see a better future?

Just finished this Sci-Fi book, The Turing Revolt. You can purchase it at Odyssey books (an Australian publisher). It is for mature audiences only, check their page for description. Author is Rob Bartlett.
I just finished reading the ARC of this small (and quickly read) book of short stories. Originally written in 1897, they were translated into English by Patricia Worth. you can purchase it at http://www.odysseybooks.com.au.
It would be a great Christmas gift for a girlfriend!
I just finished reading a delightful YA book, Esme’s Wish! It can be purchased online at Odyssey Books.Com. AU. It deals with a fifteen year old girl who has to deal with her father remarrying a new wife. Her mother was presumed lost at sea. While her father is away, honeymooning, she sets out to find clues about her mother. Were they true, did she really die as everyone said? The writing was so good, it was a true delight to read. I hope to see other works by Elizabeth Foster in the future!
Andy surveyed the beach to see the distance to the Holiday Inn. It appeared about fifty yards away from where he originally entered the water. Now they
walked through the surging surf and sand and little brown fish tumbled around their knees.
“You’re safe now. Are you with a group?”
Lucia pointed to a cluster of red blankets, a rental umbrella, and ice chest. Two other young women in bikinis were spread out, tanning, and motionless.
“Those your buddies?”
“Doesn’t seem that you were missed.” Andy felt disgusted. How could you not watch out for your friends?
Lucia picked up her pace upon nearing the blankets.
“Patricia, Helen! Why didn’t you come save me?”
Andy looked over the spot. Empty plastic drink containers with straws were propped in the sand next to each woman. They rolled over and looked at her stupidly.
“You were asleep, weren’t you?” She looked at them indignantly.
“I just drank a coupla beers,” the one in the orange bikini said.”
“Yeah,” the other girl parroted her. “I just had a couple of beers, too.”
Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, Andy thought. I could already have been home eating lunch with my dad now. I could be doing a whole lot of other things too.
“I hate to leave you pretty ladies, but I have to find my shoes that I tossed on the beach half an hour ago.”
Disgusted, he turned to leave.
“Wait!” Lucia reached out to touch his back. “I didn’t thank you!” Her eyes were a startling blue color.
Andy turned to look at her. She bore such a damned pretty look he almost forgot their situation–almost. He never could bear stupidity well.

Where U @ is a YA novel by K.C. Sprayberry. At first, I thought this was just a story of a high school girl and her boyfriend. But I soon got involved reading about her family life and not her school life. She has problems with her mother and grandmother. She despises her long-gone but not forgotten father. But as the story moves along, she finds her grandmother is not as bad as she seems. Trea is dealt a rough hand early in life and it is not her fault. Every time she gets a happy moment, something else quickly comes along to dull the thrill of a golden moment. Over and over she has to figure out how to overcome her horrible upbringing. I found myself cheering Trea on, hoping against hope that there would be a light at the end of the tunnel for the plucky and hard working girl. This was a very satisfying and well written book. You will remember it long after you finish the last page.
