The 4:15 Express to Nowhere

Author: Dianne Krogh

Kindle Unlimited

The 4:15 Express to Nowhere is a twisting, emotional exploration of a family torn apart in pursuit of a pretense and brought together again in the most unexpected way.

Valerie Fairfield is 13 when she decides to become someone else. By the time she realizes it is a mistake, she is 58. And dead.

When Valerie dies suddenly one Saturday afternoon, she finds herself trapped in her past until she can confront the tragedies she set in motion with her decision so long ago.

Her sensitive son is drifting through life convinced he has no value. Her beautiful daughter is miserable even as she prepares to marry a wealthy and handsome man in the society wedding of the year. Business problems, a tragic accident, personal losses and political scandal drive the family into deeper dysfunction as Valerie fights to protect the family image. Her children struggle to prevent their own identities from being sacrificed as they are being made into the children Valerie really wanted. There is gritty reality lurking beneath the polished image of the family Valerie has created, but she refuses to acknowledge the pattern of destruction that has followed her since middle school.

Insight, imagination, and humor combine to create this deeply engaging novel about social class envy, peer pressure, individual differences and the outside influences that tear at family ties in our contemporary society.

Slowly Valerie realizes the tragedies her family endured were because of the misguided decision she made so many years before, and she begins to feel regrets. It isn’t until she looks down on her funeral, which is filled with devastating family revelations, that she finally understands that her perfect life is just a legacy of mistakes. But is it too late for forgiveness?

Author Description: I’ve always loved words. Their power to elicit emotion. To tell a story. To create understanding. Or to persuade. I’ve used them for all those things over the years.

My novels are about contemporary life and how we cope with the pressures. Everyday is filled with mystery, fantasy and psychologically thrilling events. They entangle us when we go to work or snare us while we plant our gardens. Those are the stories I like to explore — the stories that have become the challenges of life in the last half century of America.

My husband would tell you it took 20 years and thousands of dollars worth of coffee to get my first novel done. But that isn’t quite true. Most of that time was spent thinking about it. The idea to do a novel about greed and ego took root in my mind long ago.

But those were the days of 50-hour work weeks writing corporate communications, carpools to drive, meals to prepare, and trying to stay upright in the happy chaos of a household with a husband, a teenage son, a dog, a cat, and a bossy Parrot. Erma Bombeck was my hero. Now I have the time to let my words flow in whatever direction my mind leads me. What fun!

Thank you all for reading my books. And thank you for the heartwarming reviews and comments. I live in Arizona now, but my roots are still in Nebraska where a touch of the pioneer spirit still lives and pushes us onward.

Author’s Book List

Life in a Peacock Nest – Crimes of Greed and Ego are Rarely Punished
From a new storyteller comes a engaging and light-hearted novel. A powerful boss with a Stage 4 case of greed and ego. People eager to crowd into his orb. But, can anyone survive there?

Scarred from growing up in a small town where the children from a clique of wealthy families were always favored, Alan Dravel begins a vengeful search for his own wealth and power. He barges into the technology boom of 1980’s corporate America with an idea. Over his head but never in doubt, he unleashes his greed and ego in a self-serving climb to success which turns destructive.

Alan’s quick thinking, he considers it a special kind of genius, keeps him a step ahead of his failures. He shuns contact with the common herd and disregards the opinions of people who wear rubber-soled shoes, but those are the people he turns to when he needs scapegoats.

With a handsome face, a quick mind and a lack of ethical or moral considerations to restrain him, Alan drags a Kansas farm family, a country church and associates of a high-flying corporation together in his widening web of failures – all while being honored as one of the country’s top business leaders.

Those caught in the slipstream of Alan’s wild ride to power struggle to hang on for the rewards they believe association with Alan can provide. Power and ego prevail as Alan orchestrates the most unimaginable twists and turns to entangle his victims and save himself. Those who survive find justice in the last place they think to look.

Life in a Peacock Nest is a captivating saga that probes the strength and weakness of the human spirit. It is a story about the nature of people, with characters so memorable you won’t want to let them go.

Lindi Parker, Shifter Shield Series (3 book series)

Author: Margo Bond Collins

Kindle Unlimited

Lindi Parker works hard at being human, not an easy task for a snake shifter. She has no desire to search for others like her–until a new case changes everything. When Lindi learns she’s not the only shapeshifter in the world, she also realizes she might be next on a killer’s list.

In order to save herself and the abused children she works with, she will have to team up with Dr. Kade Nevala, a member of the shifter tribe responsible for eradicating weresnakes–and the most attractive man Lindi’s ever met. Even more terrifying, she’ll need to embrace her serpent side, a choice that has enormous consequences for Lindi, and for everyone around her.

Under Her Skin
Lindi Parker works hard at being human, not an easy task for a snake shifter. She has no desire to search for others like her–until a new case changes everything. When Lindi learns she’s not the only shapeshifter in the world, she also realizes she might be next on a killer’s list.

In order to save herself and the abused children she works with, she will have to team up with Dr. Kade Nevala, a member of the shifter tribe responsible for eradicating weresnakes–and the most attractive man Lindi’s ever met. Even more terrifying, she’ll need to embrace her serpent side, a choice that has enormous consequences for Lindi, and for everyone around her.

The Skin She’s In
Capturing the killer who was stalking the shapeshifter community should have earned weresnake Lindi Parker and her new boyfriend, mongoose-shifter Kade Nevala, a vacation. Instead it earned them a basket of baby lamias and a whole pile of trouble.

Some shifters think no lamia should be left alive. In fact, a faction of shifters led by one particular werewolf pack is determined to take Lindi down any way they can.

In Someone Else’s Skin
Lindi Parker is scared out of her mind–and for a snakeshifter, that’s saying something.

When Lindi grabbed the latest newborn lamia and leaped into the unknown, she knew she was risking both their lives.

But the alternative–allowing the faction that wants to eliminate all lamias on sight to capture them–meant certain death.

Return to Welcome Series

Author: Bonnie Edwards

Kindle Unlimited

Finding Mercy

Seriously? Return to Welcome? She’d rather chew rusty nails… Welcome, WA an idyllic town where rumors, gossip, and grudges endure long after their best before date…

Mercy Talbot left Welcome on a high–a golden-girl beauty queen who stepped confidently into a bright, exciting future. But that was a long time ago and that girl is far, far, away. She’s failed in her career, failed in love, failed her family–and she’s dead broke.

All Mercy wants is to forget her failures and move forward into a new life with a fresh set of dreams–and get out of Welcome before it sucks her back in for good. But one look at her precocious niece who desperately needs her sends Mercy on a journey into her past that will change everyone’s future.

Loving Logan

A standalone single mom (with too many kids and a bad rep) romance that breaks all the rules: he’s younger, wants his own kids, and is the nicest guy in Welcome.

Elle Foster has three rules: Don’t date, don’t sleep with the boss, and don’t believe in happily-ever-after. She left Welcome broke, pregnant, and with a bad-girl rep.

Craving Jake

Returning to Welcome was easy…staying will be a challenge. Especially when someone is determined to drive her out.

Brianna Bowler has returned to her small town of Welcome to help run Bowler’s Dog Rescue. She’s also doing everything she can to set aside thoughts of her high school crush Jake Morrow. Jake appears to be with a perfectly perfect sprite of a woman. (Not that she minds how opposite she and the sprite are. Really, she doesn’t.)

Paramedic Jake Morrow has a woman in his house: she cooks, cleans, clings —and irritates the hell out of him. He’d felt sorry for her, injured, alone and broke, and offered to help. Big mistake.

And when Sam and Penny spend the entire weekend of the wedding together, their sizzling attraction turns explosive.

Author Description:
Writing steamy yet sweet compassionate stories of fate that are wonderfully romantic, Tamara Ferguson is the multi-award winning, USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR of the Tales of the Dragonfly Romance Suspense Series, the Kissed By Fate Series, the Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance Series, the Daydreams & Dragonflies Sweet Romance Series and the Tales From Dragonfly Pointe Short Story Series.

If you don’t believe in the power of fate, you shouldn’t read her stories, because Tamara always writes a happily-ever-after for her heroines and heroes, since it doesn’t always work out that way in real life.

Since 2015, she has earned more than thirty awards, twenty of those for her Two Hearts Wounded Warrior romances, including five Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards with Two Hearts In Accord (2019) and Two Hearts Unbroken (2018) earning the BRONZE, Two Hearts Under Fire (2019) and Two Hearts Unspoken (2016) earning the SILVER and Two Hearts Find Christmas earning the GOLD Medal in Military Fiction (2018.) Two Hearts Surrendered was also a New Apple Romance Selection for excellence in Indie Publishing and 2018 Top Shelf Finalist. Two Hearts’ Christmas Wish is a 2017 IAN Book of the Year Finalist. And it’s the #13 BEST INDIE BOOK of 2017.

Along with the 2015 Romance Reviews Readers’ Choice Award Winner That Unforgettable Kiss, Two Hearts Surrendered and Two Hearts Unspoken were also finalists for the 2016 IAN Book of The Year. Tales of the Dragonfly In Tandem was a romance finalist in the Indie Excellence Awards, while Tales of the Dragonfly In Flight was a romance suspense winner at the Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards.

A member of the RWA, the Authors’ Billboard and the Authors’ Independent Book Network, her stories have been included in several #1 bestselling anthologies.

Since she remains a full-time caregiver for an autistic son (along with a bunch of adopted pets!), you can usually find Tammy working at home, where she spends a lot of time not completing her numerous home improvement projects, because she’s writing or helping author friends promote their books on twitter.
