delving deeply into the past - Grave Injustice (Cold Case Files #3) by Netta Newbound

"This is one of those authors you just cannot read enough of. Her books have only what you want in them- action, great characters, wonderful writing, a fabulous mystery or two, and did I say action?! I really like Geri and her man James and the rest of her crew. This is kind of a continuation of the last book, but you could definitely read it as a standalone. Though honestly, why wouldn't you want to read the other books in this series, as they are all 5 star books (IMHO)." - Mary, Goodreads

Each one of us is a master of infinite possibilities - A Million Thoughts by Om Swami

"Om Swami writes in an easy-to-follow way, and his voice comes through as humble and loving. I was in awe over how in-depth he went into the practice of meditation. I no longer felt overwhelmed with the idea." - Sage, Goodreads

they’ll do anything to be together - Mated in Treason by Christa Paige

"[c]ompletely unputdownable. I inhaled this book within a day of opening the first page. Cover to cover it read so well with genuine uniqueness not often found in the genre that has seen pretty much everything. [...] Overall this was a fabulous read and I am seriously intrigued about the rest of the series!" - Nicole, Goodreads

I can’t imagine my life without... - In this Breeze (Lake Shore University #1) by Kathleen Mareé

"I highly recommend In This Breeze for a story full of turmoil, love, and secrets to unearth. I cannot wait to be back with these three again and experience more of what makes their bond so inseparable and so fascinating. KM Neuhold brought the heat and intrigue among the world of textbooks, college parties, and unrequited love and left us pining with love for two heroes." - Catherine, Goodreads

a relationship destined for anything but trouble - Turning in Circles by Michelle Buckman

"Michelle Buckman’s distinctive voice, vivid and authentic characters, and brutal honesty are very much in evidence in her seventh novel,”Turning in Circles.” Stunning, suspenseful, and poignant, this coming of age story is set in the South, in a town so small it barely seems to have come blinking into the 21st Century." - Carol, Goodreads

[...] On top of one amazingly hot romance the suspense of who is involved and what is actually going on with Cessy's father's club left me biting my nails and flipping pages like crazy." Britt, Goodreads

only the past can determine the future - Virtue and Honor by Randi Perrin

The last couple of chapters were so emotional and gripping to the last sentence.
