Synopsis:

Every day the same

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.

Until today

And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

Summary:

Glass Cats is the first in the Bok Choy series of feline crime novels. This book features cats as main characters but it is not for children, or the faint of heart.

One-eyed cat Bok Choy lived with his best friend, the agoraphobic Ms. Nguyen, in a little house in the heart of Saint John, New Brunswick. They were happy together in their own little bubble until a mysterious intruder brutally murdered Ms. Nguyen and brought the outside world crashing down on newly orphaned Bok Choy.

Now this oblivious indoor cat will have to grow up fast in order to bring the killer to justice. It won’t be easy. Saint John is a kitty gangland where backyards and narrow alleys are divided into territories and defended with tooth and claw. Apart from the strays there are men with guns. He will need all the help he can get from his friends, the streetwise watchcat Bianca and the brilliant ex-cop Vincenzo, if he hopes to survive the city long enough to get his revenge.

Summary: A man with everything on the line… 
Known to the underworld only as Jericho, billionaire Theo Fitzgerald is one of the most powerful men in the world. But his plan is to tear down the criminal empire his father created from the inside out—unless someone else does it for him. He suspects a bold, seductive woman named Temple Cross might be trying to take him out with it—but for the chance to burn in the heat she gives off, he’s not sure if he minds…

A hired hit woman, Temple has been waiting to get close to Jericho her whole life. The man who destroyed her family is worth looking in the eye before she kills him—but when she’s finally alone with Jericho, he’s nothing like the ruthless barbarian she imagined. Her reaction to his touch is explosively sexual—and their emotional connection is too powerful for her to ignore. Is she his shot at redemption? Or will he have to risk losing her love to save her life?

For twenty-eight years, things have been tripping along nicely for Cannie Shapiro. Sure, her mother has come charging out of the closet, and her father has long since dropped out of her world. But she loves her friends, her rat terrier, Nifkin, and her job as pop culture reporter for The Philadelphia Examiner. She’s even made a tenuous peace with her plus-size body.

But the day she opens up a national women’s magazine and sees the words “Loving a Larger Woman” above her ex-boyfriend’s byline, Cannie is plunged into misery…and the most amazing year of her life. From Philadelphia to Hollywood and back home again, she charts a new course for herself: mourning her losses, facing her past, and figuring out who she is and who she can become.
