Sci fi at its best. Or if you prefer, unusual futuristic mystery. Greg Mandel is gifted with some natural empathy and because of this he is fitted with biotechnology that makes him a living lie detector and is hired by Event Horizons to investigate corporate espionage in Mindstar Rising. A Quantum Murder takes place two years later when again Greg Mandel’s special talents are demanded by Event Horizons and its young owner, Julia Evans. This one involves a bit of a twist to the locked-room mystery. Both books are fast paced and sci fi fun. Everything takes place in a post apocalyptic world created by extreme global warming and not too hard to believe. What’s amazing is the innovative way people have learned to survive.

In this follow-up to Earlene Fowler's national bestseller, The Saddlemaker's Wife, Ruby McGavin returns to the small town of Cardinal, California, where a year ago she brought her husband's ashes back to his family's ranch, and discovered safety, peace, and a love... Ruby never thought she'd return to Cardinal, but she's hoping the place and people who gave her so much can give her brother Nash—who's been drowning in drink in Nashville—the fresh start he so desperately needs. Saddlemaker Lucas McGavin is thrilled that Ruby has come back. He hasn't given up on his love for her, despite the awkward fact that she is his brother's widow, and he's well aware that this may be his last chance to win Ruby's heart.
When Nash starts drinking again and ends up in a devastating accident, Ruby decides she must find her estranged mother to help with an intervention. Two states away, Etta Walker harbors a horrible secret that keeps her from reconnecting with the children she deserted so many years ago. As they struggle with the present and confront the past, Ruby, Lucas, and Etta learn the power of forgiveness…and reach for a new future filled with hope, grace, and love.
