Steven Manchester does it again! He takes us into the mind of Mac, a Husband, Father, a Man who has everything, or so it seems.

Twenty-One Days by Anne Perry

Twenty-one Days: A Daniel Pitt Novel
Daniel Pitt didn't want to take this case, but his father has specifically asked him to. So, he started asking questions, thrusting him into a web of dubious ideas, strange, but true circumstances and even more astonishing conclusions.
Having been a fan of Anne Perry for many years, I was interested to see the children of her original characters taking up the endeavours of their parents. But this is also an excellent stand alone story, on it's own merits!

The Here and Now by Ann Brashares

The Here and Now by [Brashares, Ann]
It starts with a boy fishing, who sees something astounding. It ends with a new future, maybe.
Time is like a river, you can't step in the same place twice....or can you? Petra and Ethan both have a role in changing the future, but one is from that future. Part of a group sent back in time to survive, after the blood plagues, the starvation, the present day seems like a paradise!
Can they do something to stop the plagues from happening?
What will happen if they do change the future?
A thought provoking read about power and it's corruptive influence, the consequences of actions that could not be predicted, and the best of intentions having horrible results.
You will be surprised as this story takes you places you will not expect!
A fascinating, thought provoking read.
