Meet Benni Harper…a spirited ex-cowgirl, quilter, and folk-art expert who’s staking out her own corner of the contemporary American West. She’s got an eye for murderous designs—and a talent for piecing together the most complex and cold-blooded crimes. When Benni’s stepson announces his plans to marry into the wealthy, influential Brown family, she and her husband are invited to the Browns’ sprawling ranch, Seven Sisters, to celebrate the engagement. But the party takes a tragic turn when a member of the esteemed family is murdered. While trying to unravel the feuding clan’s tangled past, Benni uncovers a shocking pattern of tragedy—and stitches a hodgepodge of clues into a very disturbing design. . . Seven Sisters, a challenging pattern that features a single six-pointed star surrounded by six identical stars, was most likely inspired by an observation of nature—the Seven Sisters is a loose grouping of stars in the constellation Taurus. Although the stars in the cluster appear to be close together, they are, in fact, quite far apart.

CAROLINE'S SISTER by No. 1 bestselling author Sheila O'Flanagan is an unforgettable tale of family ties, secrets and surprises - not to be missed by readers of Veronica Henry and Freya North. To her younger sister, Tessa, Caroline O'Shaughnessy seems to have everything - great looks, easy charm, and the distinctly desirable Damien Woods. But for Caroline, things don't feel quite so rosy. She'd dreamed about moving in with Damien, but not about having his child, just yet. And though he did the honourable thing when she told him she was pregnant, it obviously wasn't what he wanted either. And as both of them struggle to make the best of a bad job, neither is prepared for the impact a moment of drunken indiscretion will have not just on their lives but on Tessa's too...

This is a story about a young kid growing up in the blue-collar town of Bayonne, NJ. During the war years of the 1940s and his teenage years of the 1950s, Robert Vargovcik went off to make his mark on the world. Bayonne is located across the harbor from the southern tip of Manhattan. It was known for its oil refineries, but it also had a lot of heavy industries, chemical plants, foundries, and the like. Everybody had a good-paying job. The author grew up in close neighborhoods, and television and air-conditioning were on the distant horizon. It was the time of screen doors, front porches, and backyard swings. Evenings were spent with neighbors exchanging gossip and waiting for a cool breeze. Winters were spent playing board games. Thanks to gas rationing, the streets were the playgrounds, and seven-year-olds could roam far and wide and not worry their parents. They just had to make sure they were home for dinner.

Posie Victoria Vandermark charges forth from her mansion in Possum Trot, her new Jaguar racing her into lost corners of high prairie that surround the forlorn little town. She is wild as the prairie wind, spoiled, and eccentric. Her one stubborn determination is to become a ballerina, although her size and awkwardness make this more than doubtful. To force things her way Posie hires an ageing Italian ballet dancer whose career is over and who sees that the rich Posie could be his retirement pension. This is his plot forward. Coaxing Posie's delusion on is her nemesis, the cruel Aunt Bertha Flatbottom. She in turn falls madly in love with the 'Dancing Master.' Along the way Posie's quest for dancing recruit others. In fact Aunt Bertha schemes to produce a public recital for Posie that should surely make her utterly ridiculous and an object of scorn Meanwhile Posie is running amok through Possum Trot in her increasingly ragged tutu and slippers, giving performances to the Church, the Gas Station and the pool hall. Her recital is as expected the most unusual ever held. And following it is a cataclysmic dance of Posie's own across the vast and empty Prairie. Author Bio: Jonathan Wesley Bell has written several novels and short stories.
