Mel Turner, a contractor with a supernatural gift, must solve a mystery at a haunted bed-and-breakfast in the latest installment of Juliet Blackwell's Haunted Home Renovation series. Word has spread that contractor Mel Turner can communicate with the spirits of the dead, and she's having a hard time maintaining a low profile. She decides to embrace her reputation for the chance to restore a historic house that calls to her. The new owners, who hope to run a haunted bed-and-breakfast, want Mel to encourage the ghosts that supposedly roam the halls to enhance the house's paranormal charm. The catch: Mel has to spend one night in the house to win the project. During the spine-chilling sleepover, the estate gains another supernatural occupant when someone doesn't survive the night. As Mel tries to coax the resident spirits into revealing the identity of the killer, she risks becoming the next casualty of this dangerous renovation.

Dyeing Wishes: A Haunted Yarn Shop Mystery Audiobook

Dyeing Wishes: A Haunted Yarn Shop Mystery

Author: Molly MacRae Narrator: Emily Durante Release Date: July 2013

Set in the first few months following the Confederate surrender and the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, Sam—a runaway slave who once worked for the Union Army—decides to leave his safe haven in Philadelphia and set out on foot to return to the war-torn South. Freeman, the new novel by Leonard Pitts, Jr., takes place in the first few months following the Confederate surrender and the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Upon learning of Lee's surrender, Sam—a runaway slave who once worked for the Union Army—decides to leave his safe haven in Philadelphia and set out on foot to return to the war-torn South. What compels him on this almost-suicidal course is the desire to find his wife, the mother of his only child, whom he and their son left behind fifteen years earlier on the Mississippi farm to which they all "belonged." At the same time, Sam's wife, Tilda, is being forced to walk at gunpoint with her owner and two of his other slaves from the charred remains of his Mississippi farm into Arkansas, in search of an undefined place that would still respect his entitlements as slaveowner and Confederate officer. The book's third main character, Prudence, is a fearless, headstrong white woman of means who leaves her Boston home for Buford, Mississippi, to start a school for the former bondsmen, and thus honor her father's dying wish. At bottom, Freeman is a love story—sweeping, generous, brutal, compassionate, patient—about the feelings people were determined to honor, despite the enormous constraints of the times. It is this aspect of the book that should ensure it a strong, vocal, core audience of African-American women, who will help propel its likely critical acclaim to a wider audience. At the same time, this book addresses several themes that are still hotly debated today, some one hundred and forty-five years after the official end of the Civil War. Like Cold Mountain, Freeman illuminates the times and places it describes from a fresh perspective, with stunning results. It has the potential to become a classic addition to the literature dealing with this period. Few other novels so powerfully capture the pathos and possibility of the era particularly as it reflects the ordeal of the black slaves grappling with the promise—and the terror—of their new status as free men and women.

But before the fur can fly this talented trio will unmask a murderer—and unearth a few other surprises along the way. “As always, Murphy successfully walks the fine line between maintaining the cathood of her felines and endowing them with sentiency.

Cat to the Dogs

Author: Shirley Rousseau Murphy Narrator: Susan Boyce Release Date: February 2013

Ever since the earthquake, things have been going from bad to worse in Molena Point, usually the most tranquil little town on the North California coast. It started with that suspicious “accident” on Hellhag Hill. The police might write it off to the night fog, but Joe Grey knows a cut brake line when he sees it—he may be a cat, but he’s already solved more murders than your average police detective! Then there’s Clyde, Joe’s erratic but loveable human. He thinks cats should stay out of police work (as if humans could handle it on their own!), and to make his point, he’s locking Joe and his lady friend Dulcie out of the house when Officer Harper comes over to play poker. But Joe isn’t about to give up the chase. Not until the “ghost” of Hellhag Hill is tracked down and brought to justice. “A special treat for cat mystery fans who like a little more feline participation.”--Library Journal

Lucy discovers the victim is VV's grandson, and soon learns that not all is as it seems at idyllic Pine Point. Always a social butterfly, VV has been skipping lunch dates with friends, and her much-needed donations to local charities have stopped with no explanation.

While accompanying her date to his family reunion, Maggie is reunited with a woman who had once been her stepmother.

Using her skills as a photographer to aid her in uncovering the secrets hidden on the gravesites, she realizes that these deaths may not have been random, but part of a diabolical scheme. What Maggie doesn't realize is that she too has become a target -- and each clue brings her closer to a shocking, unimaginable fate. With the sense of swiftly mounting danger that has made all of Mary Higgins Clark's works major bestsellers, Moonlight Becomes You is enthralling suspense.
