Half-Built Houses

Thriller von Eric Keller

Charley Ewanuschuk has been mistreated all his life and now survives by moving through society as unnoticed as possible. However, when a murder occurs behind the half-built house he is squatting in society takes notice of the introverted homeless man as he becomes the prime murder suspect. Brian Cox managed to charm his way into a good job in a national law firm but, when the recession hit, he learned that charm is a disposable commodity.

Eric Keller ist ein kanadischer Anwalt – seine Romane haben also die eher selteneren kanadischen Schauplätze. “A good social commentary, balancing a spoiled rich kid who gets away with everything his whole life, with a homeless squatter, doing right by others, but unable to get out of his unfortunate and unearned lot in life.“ (Leser) (40 Rezensionen / 4,8 Sterne), 325 Seiten – noch gratis?

Grace Lost Horror-Roman von M. Lauryl Lewis
Es gab keine Warnung. Keinen Weg sich vorzubereiten. Man sollte meinen, dass das Ende der Welt langsam kommen würde, oder laut, oder so schnell, dass das Ende ein dunkles weites Nichts wäre. Man könnte denken, dass sich Neuigkeiten über ein drohendes Verhängnis verbreiten. „This book was top tier. Normally, I find zombie books to be overdone and overzealous, but this one handled the subject with style.“ (Leser) (322 Rezensionen / 4,1 Sterne), 342 Seiten – noch gratis?

Far Horizons

Historischer Liebesroman von Kate Hewitt

On the eve of his departure for the New World, Allan MacDougall asks his beloved Harriet to wait for his return, when he will be established and able to marry her. While Harriet gladly gives her promise, Allan’s father insists he is acting dishonourably and so he must free Harriet to marry another while he continues to keep the faith himself. Through years of hardship, heartache, tragedy, and betrayal, Allan and Harriet cling to the love that first brought them together–yet it is the treacherous doubts of their own hearts that could prove to be their undoing, and drive them farther apart than ever.

Kate Hewitt ist eine renommierte amerikanische Autorin von romantischen Büchern. Sie lebt aber schon lange in England, weswegen sie auch Romane mit sehr englischen Schauplätzen überzeugend verfasst. „Wowzers! This is a pro-bass fisherman type book, in that it hooked me good, and then reeled me through some heartbreaking, stormy waters. The plot gutted me and left me bleeding at times, yet I would recommend that everyone bite onto this story and go through the same heart-wrenching process. It’s a pleasure to be gutted like this. Seriously!“ (Leserin) (398 Rezensionen / 4,1 Sterne), 259 Seiten – noch gratis?
