New Release Sale! Only $0.99 !

Twenty-one-year-old Lena McKenna thought she escaped her past when she earned a photography scholarship to a top university. It’s been two years since she’s seen her troubled younger sister Lux or set foot in the house haunted by the memories of her mother’s suicide.

Everything changes the day her father suffers a massive heart attack. Lena puts her dreams on hold and rushes home, only to discover that Lux has run away. As she cares for her dying father, Lena reconstructs the past, struggling to understand the betrayals and secrets that broke her family.

Things get even more complicated when Lena runs into a former crush, rekindling a romance she never thought possible. But how can she believe in love when everything around her is falling apart?

Meanwhile, eighteen-year-old Lux will do anything to forget. Anything. Nothing keeps the darkness at bay, not her sweet and loyal boyfriend, her love of astronomy, or her reckless descent into self-destruction.

As their father’s condition worsens, Lux leaves a trail of devastation in her wake. Lena must choose: escape her past and leave her sister–and her chance at love–behind, or turn and face the demons threatening to destroy them both.

Who We Are Instead explores the volatile relationship between sisters, the legacy of mental illness, and the healing power of hope and redemption. For fans of Jay Asher’s Thirteen Reasons Why and John Green’s Looking for Alaska.

She might prove herself a friend–if Sidney can let her guard down. Then there’s Lucas, the sweet and funny new guy who sees straight through her tough, snarky façade.

Brilliant Use Of Time

I am pretty sure the neighbors must think I am murdering someone over here. My computer has decided to go retro and take me back to the days of dial-up. Everything I do right now takes and extra 30 seconds. I should look at this as a time to slow down and appreciate life, but instead I am using the slow down as an opportunity to do a little cardio by waving my arms around and stomping my feet. I made up a few new curse words and was deciding which ones I wanted to add to the rotation. I like to mix it up a bit.

The Actress (Rita Farmer Mysteries Book 1)
by Elizabeth Sims
4.4 Stars (46 Reviews)
Genre: Mystery | Women’s Fiction | Thrillers

FREE for a limited time

Aspiring actress and single mother Rita Farmer has gone from struggling to find work to downright desperate. If she doesn’t land a paying job soon—horror movie, soap commercial, anything—she’s afraid her ex-husband will use her dire financial straits to take away Petey, her cherished four-year-old son.

While she’s charming the crowd at storytime at the L.A. public library, a celebrity defense attorney approaches her with an unusual job offer: So long as she’s discreet, Rita can rake in a thousand dollars a day preparing his client for her appearance in court. Easy money? Hardly. His client, Eileen Tenaway, is not only a wealthy heiress and a queen of the tabloids but she’s been charged with the murder of her own child. The attorney needs Rita to coach Eileen secretly to help her seem more sympathetic, more human. He needs the jury to believe not only her words but the subtle cues of body language, facial expressions, even vocal style.

Rita knows she can do it, but what she doesn’t know is how determined she’ll become to find out what really happened to Eileen’s family—once her own life and Petey’s life depend on it. The Actress, Elizabeth Sims’s engrossing series debuting a spirited sleuth, delivers a fresh, behind-the-scenes look at Hollywood’s high society at its lowest.

by Adrian Del Valle

Genre: Action & Adventure | Biographies & Memoirs

FREE for a limited time

Joe Barnes’ home is a 9X12 room on a quiet tree-lined street near Downtown Brooklyn. He borrowed $10,000 from the Irish Mob in “Hell’s Kitchen”, a lot of money in 1961. The first payment is well over due. He’s late by three months and now they want it all back. That’s why he’s hiding out across the river with no plans of going back to Manhattan.
Joe is biding his time while he waits for a good tip on a fast horse at the Trotters. He still has all of the money he borrowed and believes he has hidden it well.
Below, in a two room, first floor flat, 14 year old Diego lives with Ana, his handicapped mother. Money is hard to come by. A welfare check barely puts food on the table, so the boy hustles the streets to buy milk, bread, or anything else they need.
He befriends Bill Jackson, an elderly black southerner from the Carolinas who lives one block over on Bergen Street with Beulah, his warm hearted, matronly wife. Though not on welfare, they scrape by on the little they get from Social Security, and lately, they have come up short for the electric bill.
