Summary

Award-winning author Jill McCorkle takes us on a splendid journey through time and memory in this, her tenth work of fiction. Life After Life is filled with a sense of wonder at our capacity for self-discovery at any age. And the residents, staff, and neighbors of the Pine Haven retirement center (from twelve-year-old Abby to eighty-five-year-old Sadie) share some of life’s most profound discoveries and are some of the most true-to-life characters that you are ever likely to meet in fiction. Delivered with her trademark wit, Jill McCorkle’s constantly surprising novel illuminates the possibilities of second chances, hope, and rediscovering life right up to the very end. She has conjured an entire community that reminds us that grace and magic can—and do—appear when we least expect it.

    A new crime series set in the brooding landscape of the Scottish borders from the author of the Celcius Daly series. 
     
    Not long out of the fast-track training course at Edinburgh's police college, Detective Sergeant Carla Herron is about to be tested to breaking point. 
     
    She's been called to Deepwell psychiatric hospital in the Scottish borders to interview a patient who has confessed to the murder of one of the hospital's psychotherapists. The confession is vividly detailed, but for a man locked in a secure ward and under 24-hour surveillance, it is also utterly impossible. 
     
    So why can't the supposedly murdered psychotherapist be contacted? Why are the hospital staff so secretive, so difficult to work with? Why have other Deepwell patients made disturbingly similar confessions over the past year? Against the advice of her superiors, Carla delves deeper into the hospital's past and is plunged into a labyrinth of jealousies, lies and hallucinations. 
     
    Struggling to separate fact from fantasy, Carla embarks on a chilling trail through the bleak uplands and dark forests of the Scottish borders, every step taking her closer to a final – deadly – reckoning.

    From acclaimed novelist and “master of psychological thrillers” (Library Journal) Paula Daly, Open Your Eyes follows a bestselling crime novelist’s tragic turn from fictional perpetrator into real-life victim.
     
    Jane Campbell avoids confrontation at any costs. Given the choice, she’ll always let her husband, Leon—a bestselling crime writer—take the lead, while she focuses on her two precious young children and her job as a creative writing teacher. After she receives another rejection for her novel, Leon urges Jane to put her hobby to rest. And why shouldn’t she, when through Jane’s rose-tinted glasses, they appear to have the perfect house and the perfect life?
     
    But then Leon is brutally attacked in their driveway while their children wait quietly in the car, and suddenly, their perfect life becomes the stuff of nightmares. Who would commit such a hateful offense in broad daylight? With her husband in a coma, Jane must open her eyes to the problems in her life, as well as the secrets that have been kept from her. Although she might not like what she sees, if she’s committed to discovering who hurt her husband—and why—Jane must take matters into her own hands.
     
    A surprising and gripping thriller of pride, ambition, and envy, Open Your Eyes is an unsettling whodunit about the illusions of a perfect marriage that confirms Paula Daly as a writer at the forefront of domestic suspense.

    Kath and Tony were recruitment agents… of a sort. Their brief was to source a woman for a six-month contract and her necessary qualifications were quite specific: young, good figure, no family ties and lactating. Intense training would be provided aimed at optimising her milk yield and maximising her libido to cope with the pressures of her new role, pressures that include far more than just wet-nursing. The position will be full-time, twenty-four hours a day, and her complete dedication assured by severely restricting her ability to resist. A uniform would be provided. 
    Her remuneration, although non-negotiable, would be generous if she ever gets in a position to claim it. However, one thing leads to another until it looks unlikely that she can avoid life-long conscription as a retained fellatiologist in a brothel for the benefit of South African coal miners. 
    This book is a novel of over 77000 words and contains graphic scenes only suitable for an adult readership.

    Steamy first-time threesome tales where groups of friends — two sexy men and one lucky woman — suddenly discovering that they can become much more!
     
    Right off the bat, let's be clear: K.D. West is an excellent writer.It's nice that it's erotica, but even nicer when the person behind the word processor really knows how to create believable characters and situations, and then gets them off—explosively. — K.C. Cave
     
    When do friendship, sex, and love intersect? Stories of friends — one woman and two men — finding a way to take their relationship to a whole new level.
     
    Three of K.D. West's steamiest, most popular tales, collected for the first time:
    Truth & Games: Felicity, Ben, and Aaron have been friends for years. During a rainy-day get-together over margaritas, Felicity challenges her men to a game that will bring things to a whole new level. A tale of friendship, romance, and thinking outside the lines.
    The Visitor: Lea's got a four-alarm fire burning and she knows just who she wants to put it out. Or does she? Lea is in Atlanta for a job interview, and her best friend's brother, Sean the firefighter, is happy to give her a place to sleep. But his is the bed she'd rather sleep in. Or perhaps it's his roommate Andy's? And when a visitor comes to her that night... Well, who is she to be picky if it's one, the other, or...? A tale of sexy firefighters, a mystery lover, and embracing the unknown — literally!
    Over the Top: Danny and Suzie, Luz and Jamie - the four had been planning for over a year on heading up after graduation to the cabin by the lake. Two couples, doing what couples do. But that was before Danny and Suzie decided to be "mature" and break it off. And so now it's one couple. And Danny. And Danny's getting frustrated. A tale of desire, frustration, and a friendly, helping... mouth.
    Bonus! The Trouble with Triplets, Pt. I: Allison has been teasing her lover and former teacher Ken with the idea of a threesome. Ken has another lesson he'd like to impart. (A preview of a story from the Erotic Tales: Letters to Allison series)
    
    
     
    (MMF ménage à trois and MFM three-way sexuality; includes some male bisexuality, bisexual romance. For adult readers only)
    
     
    Extract (from "Truth & Games"):
    When she had fantasized this scene, she had been perfectly in control of her feelings, had treated them to a sultry retreat and a wink. Now however she was so terrified by what she had just said to them that she couldn't open the buttons to her blouse. She stood, fumbling with her own clothes, and cursing.
    A low roll of thunder made the hair on Felicity’s arms stand on end.
    The door opened.
    Aaron came in first, followed by Ben, who seemed to be trying to hide behind his friend, and was failing miserably, because of his height.
    They were both entirely naked.
