The View from Here focuses on the beauties and hardships of marriage; the betrayals and promises made between husbands and wives; and the grief of one woman haunted by secrets.

Nicole Baxter has always tried to control every element of her life, but that control is slipping away. She has issues. Abandonment issues. Marital issues. Conception issues. And she thinks her house in the hills is haunted. It doesn’t help that her husband Truman spleunks and climbs, making her worry more with each adventure he takes. As the two grow apart, Nicole makes decisions that may ultimately shatter her fragile marriage.

Her life changes on the afternoon she receives a phone call from the harbor. During a scuba dive, Truman disappears. No one — not his diving instructor, not the Coast Guard — can find him. Is he still alive? Or is grief making her believe the impossible?

It begins with a single gunshot, and Bishop Lynn Peterson watches in horror as a good friend, who is a member of the New Orleans Saints, collapses on the street.

When a medal the player wore—a medal Lynn had promised to return to the man’s family—disappears, Lynn is thrust into a suspenseful and fast-moving journey through four assassinations, an attempt on her life, conflicts with a mysterious and ancient society, and a behind-the-scenes conspiracy that reaches all the way to the White House.

The turbulent, unstoppable intrigue challenges Lynn mentally, physically, and spiritually as she engages in a desperate battle with an opponent who is just as determined to kill as Lynn is to stop him even though she has no idea where—or who—he will strike next.

The Thin Pink Line – Free from Amazon Kindle Store

The Thin Pink Line by Lauren Baratz-Logsted is free today from the Amazon Kindle store, and has received an average user rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars based on 123 customer reviews.  You can pick up your free copy by clicking here or typing in http://amzn.to/wpgXEe into your computer’s web browser.

Category: Contemporary Fiction

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

The world is a kinder, gentler place for pregnant women, or so discovers Jane Taylor, the heroine of Baratz-Logsted’s debut novel, upon learning that she’s expecting. So when her pregnancy turns out to be a false alarm, Jane impulsively decides to keep up the ruse. She invents details about her OB-GYN and fakes a growing stomach, among other increasingly inventive tricks. Jane is single (her live-in boyfriend didn’t appreciate her deception), almost 30, an editor and British. Sound familiar? Baratz-Logsted is refreshingly self-conscious about following the chick-lit trend. As Jane laments, “Sometimes it felt as though you could no longer turn around in a bookshop or at an editorial meeting without being confronted with yet another pink-covered book whose pages told about the wacky adventures of yet another 20-something Londoner who labored in publishing.” Jane’s own adventures are more daring than many of her fellow single-female heroines, and Baratz-Logsted’s premise is hilarious and original. Soon Jane’s pregnancy threatens to ruin a budding romance and a project at work. She wishes she could come clean, but she’s been offered a book contract about her farce by a colleague who catches her in the act. Jane doesn’t start out as the most likable of characters, but she changes so much over the course of the novel, and is so charmingly audacious, that readers will be rooting for her-and wondering what she’ll do at the end of the nine months.

Noble Vision – Free from Amazon Kindle Store

Noble Vision by Gen LaGreca is free today from the Amazon Kindle store, and has received an average user rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars based on 33 customer reviews.  You can pick up your free copy by clicking here or typing in http://amzn.to/w5HxDR into your computer’s web browser.

Category: Contemporary Fiction

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Noble Vision portrays the love story of a beautiful ballerina of the New York stage whose life is shattered by a tragic accident and a young neurosurgeon determined to save her. The dancer’s only hope is the surgeon’s breakthrough procedure to repair damaged nerves. The treatment, however, does not have the required approval of their state-run health system, a bureaucracy wracked with cost overruns and other, politically motivated priorities. The doctor must ultimately take on the entire health system to fight for his work, his ideals, and the woman he loves.

As innovative as its surgeon-protagonist, Noble Vision breaks the mold that encases much of today’s fiction. In an age in which plot stories and character studies, not to mention romances and thrillers, appear in separate categories of fiction, and thought-provoking themes are rare, Noble Vision combines a rich mix of story elements in one satisfying read. It is a nail-biting thriller, a passionate love story, and a duel of the conflicting ideas piercing the heart of medicine today.

Noble Vision won two national literary honors highly acclaimed in independent publishing: ForeWord magazine’s Book-of-the-Year and Writer’s Digest’s International Book Awards. The novel is considered “very highly recommended reading” by Midwest Book Review and earned endorsements from American Medical Association past president Edward Annis, syndicated columnist Walter Williams, magazine magnate Steve Forbes, and Nobel laureate Milton Friedman.
