The Lightkeeper's Daughter
By Colleen Coble

Addie Sullivan leads a quiet, grueling life in a northern California lighthouse until the night a storm brings an injured stranger and a dark secret to her hearth. The man insists that she is not Addie Sullivan but Julia Eaton, the child long lost and feared dead by her wealthy family. Addie leaves her lighthouse home to help her uncle Walter solve the mystery surrounding her upbringing. Someone knew of her survival and paid the Sullivans to shelter her. But who? And why? As dusty rooms and secret compartments give up their clues about her past, Addie finds truth she could never have guessed. To embrace it is to risk her life; but to run away is to risk losing the greatest love she¡¯s ever known.

The Lightkeeper¡¯s Daughter is a maze of twists and turns with an opening that grabs the reader instantly. With so many red herrings, the villain caught me by surprise.

-- Lauraine Snelling, best-selling author of A Measure of Mercy

Becca by the Book

(A Getaway Girls Novel)
By Laura Jensen Walker

Freespirited Becca Daniels is still trying to figure out what she wants to be when she grows up. What Becca doesn't want to be is bored.

To prove she's not commitment-phobic, Becca agrees to twenty-five dates with whoever asks her out next. When churchy Ben-definitely NOT her type-calls, she gamely embarks on a hilarious series of dates that plunge her into the alien world of church potlucks and prayer meetings.
