Can you change when you will die, or just the way you live?
Keira Alexander still hasn’t made any friends in her new town of Cedar Heights, but at least she’s snagged a summer community service gig at the Cedar Heights Police Department. Normally, all she does is busy work, but this time, she finds herself at the scene of an apparent suicide–Rhian Sullivan, a girl from Kiera’s high school. But when Keira finds a trunk full of Rhian’s diaries, she becomes obsessed with the life of the girl she barely knew–and with her death.
Because Rhian didn’t kill herself. She was murdered. And the murderer does not want Keira to talk…
Within the gardens of Dumbarton Oaks, famous Washington D.C. estate and site of many historic diplomatic meetings, lies a portal to another world where competing dynasties of witches battle, as time ticks backward, for control over a magical clock and a winged horse as part of an ancient prophecy. Twelve year old Genevieve’s integral role in the prophecy and the fate of this world — and her own — is revealed in the quest to find her missing single-parent mother, assume her own powers as a witch, and return home before time runs down in seven days.
“Time Witch” is a fun fantasy aimed at younger readers. ~Midwest Book Reviews
Every detail and scene was well constructed and the writing was beautiful. I thoroughly enjoyed the setting and scenery of this world. Genevieve is a wonderful character. For such a young age she shows tremendous strength and determination. I rooted for her the whole time. I highly recommend this book for readers of MG that want an action-packed read as well as a fun descriptive world, with memorable characters. ~YA Bound
I really like Genevieve’s close, loving relationship with her mother. She always keeps in mind bits of advice her mom has given her, and her whole journey is spurred by the need to make sure her mom is safe. ~Tiger Holland
Time Witch is set in a beautiful fantasy world and keeps you turning pages. ~Becky Ciardullo
Great character relationships. My favorite would have to be Genevieve’s relationship with her Mother, you don’t see it too often in these YA/MG novels these days. ~Star Shadow Review
…an enjoyable read and is perfect for ages 9-13 who love fantasy worlds with magic and daring adventures. For fans of The Chronicles of Narnia. ~The Tales Compendium
..this is one that I think most young girls would enjoy. ~Lenore Webb
This fast-paced, twisty plot is sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats. ~Wolf’s Den.
A MONTH OF SUNDAYS
A Month of Sundays was a semi-finalist in the first Amazon Breakthrough Novel Competition. In this edgy mystery, police department counselor Alayne Vaughan pursues her detective boyfriend’s case, the alleged suicide of a local poet, almost losing her love, career – and life– in the process.
The Publisher’s Weekly review says, “…unfolds fast and furious with one bizarre twist after another…The portrait here of a novice social worker struggling to control her own terrible pain adds an intense psychological layer.”
“Highly entertaining mystery! I finished this novel last night and found it to be terrifically entertaining. Actually, I finished it more like early this morning (about 1am), as I couldn’t put it down once I got into the last quarter of it, even though I had only meant to read a couple chapters before going to bed. I really enjoyed how most of the novel played out as perhaps more of a character study than a genre piece (i.e., more a novel than a mystery), while at the end the pace really seemed to accelerate as the plot all clicked into place and led up to an exciting set piece. I hope there are more books to come featuring the same lead character!” ~Aaron Hoag
When a Miami topless bar waitress, Liz Volpe, believes she has found the love of her life in federal public defender, Jules McAdams, she is shocked to wake up on his lawn one morning to find that he is dead and that she has been accused of his murder. Even as she doubts her own innocence, Liz must find the real killer or face life in prison.
“Gripping mystery suspense-highly recommended! Newcomer Jacquie Corcoran delivers an intense, gritty noir mystery that will grab you by the gut on page 1 and never let go.” ~Susan F. Swift
