Pamela DuMond, The Messenger - Mortal Beloved, Book One (time-travel romantic thriller) - This book is optioned for Film/TV. Sixteen-year-old Madeline meets Samuel when she time travels hundreds of years into the past. He's half Native, she's white, and their relationship is forbidden.

Harper Lin, Pawsitively Dead - A Wonder Cats Mystery (paranormal cozy mystery) - When Cath visits her parents' graves, she finds the dead body of the local hairstylist, and later stumbles upon an older corpse, nearly a skeleton, of a woman who died in 1958. It has been exhumed from her grave, but who would do that? While the police are stumped, Cath, Bea, and Aunt Astrid suspect sorcery... necromancy...

Connie Shelton, Phantoms Can Be Murder (haunted cozy mystery) - An enigmatic letter from her namesake aunt, a trip to England, and Charlie is seeing ghosts in the medieval Suffolk town of Bury St. Edmunds.

Something sinister is brewing and draws Charlie into an investigation of crimes that are far too real.
Carolyn Haines, Skin Dancer (mystery) - When poachers are murdered in the South Dakota wilderness, locals believe that a Native American legend, the Skin Dancer, is back and seeking retribution for those who cruelly slaughter animals.
