"Almost Missed You is a skillful, insightful debut: a deft exploration of the mysteries of marriage, the price we pay for our secrets, and just how easy it is to make the worst choices imaginable." —Chris Bohjalian, New York Times bestselling author of The Sandcastle Girls and Midwives "Almost Missed You is an emotional powerhouse of a novel." —Garth Stein, New York Times bestselling author of A Sudden Light and The Art of Racing in the Rain "In Almost Missed You, debut author Jessica Strawser meticulously weaves together a kidnapped child, friends in turmoil, and a Craigslist ad into a tangled web of secrets, lies, and unexpected alliances. This heart-breaking page-turner will make you question how well you really know everyone you hold dear." — Amy Sue Nathan, author of The Glass Wives "Jessica Strawser has expertly woven a tale of a marriage in crisis with elements of daring, danger, mystery, and secrets that will surprise and delight you...Glorious!" — Adriana Trigiani, New York Times bestselling author of All the Stars in the Heavens "Jessica Strawser writes from the heart." —New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline "Almost Missed You is compelling fiction from a brave new voice." —Bestselling author Sophie Littlefield Violet and Finn were “meant to be,” said everyone, always. They ended up together by the hands of fate aligning things just so. Three years into their marriage, they have a wonderful little boy, and as the three of them embark on their first vacation as a family, Violet can’t help thinking that she can’t believe her luck. Life is good. So no one is more surprised than she when Finn leaves her at the beach—just packs up the hotel room and disappears. And takes their son with him. Violet is suddenly in her own worst nightmare, and faced with the knowledge that the man she’s shared her life with, she never really knew at all. Caitlin and Finn have been best friends since way back when, but when Finn shows up on Caitlin’s doorstep with the son he’s wanted for kidnapping, demands that she hide them from the authorities, and threatens to reveal a secret that could destroy her own family if she doesn’t, Caitlin faces an impossible choice. As the suspenseful events unfold through alternating viewpoints of Violet, Finn and Caitlin, Jessica Strawser's Almost Missed You is a page turning story of a mother’s love, a husband’s betrayal, connections that maybe should have been missed, secrets that perhaps shouldn’t have been kept, and spaces between what’s meant to be and what might have been.

Im nächsten Leben, da ist sich Enzo sicher, wird er ein Mensch sein. Deshalb beobachtet der kluge Hund die Welt um sich herum genau – und er kommt zu erstaunlichen Einsichten. Sein großes Vorbild ist Herrchen Denny: Familienvater, Rennfahrer und der zuverlässigste Freund, den ein Hund haben kann. Doch dann gerät Dennys Leben plötzlich aus den Fugen ... Denny und Enzo sind ein unzertrennliches Paar. Enzo liebt sein Herrchen über alles und genießt das entspannte Männerleben, geprägt von ausgedehnten Spaziergängen, lockeren Essensgewohnheiten und den spannenden Geschichten, die Denny von seinem Leben als Rennfahrer erzählt. Daher reagiert Enzo zunächst mit großer Eifersucht auf Eve, in die Denny sich verliebt und die ihr Leben völlig verändert. Doch er ist klug, er arrangiert sich mit Eve, denn er sieht genau, dass Eve für Denny noch wichtiger ist als seine große Leidenschaft, das Autorennen. Als die kleine Zoë geboren wird, begreift er sie nicht als weiteren Eindringling, sondern als Geschenk und schwört sich, sie stets zu beschützen. Eine Weile ist das Glück der vier perfekt. Zufrieden gibt sich Enzo seiner Lieblingsbeschäftigung hin: dem Philosophieren über das Leben der Menschen, ihr Verhalten, ihre Vorlieben und ihre Schwächen. Enzo ist davon überzeugt, dass er in seinem nächsten Leben ein Mensch sein wird, und so versucht er alles zu verstehen, auch wenn er vieles seltsam findet. Doch dann scheint ein Schicksalsschlag Dennys ganze Welt zu zerstören – und Enzo erkennt, worin die Kunst, ein Mensch zu sein, tatsächlich besteht. Enzo.

What advice would you give the younger you...and would you listen? As far as time machines go, a magic telephone is pretty useless. TV writer Georgie McCool can't actually visit the past; all she can do is call it, and hope it picks up. Is she going crazy or is this a chance to make things right with her husband, Neal? Maybe she can fix the things in their past that seem unfixable in the present. Maybe this stupid phone is giving her a chance to start over...if that's what she wants... A heart-wrenching - and hilarious - take on fate, time, television and true love, Landline asks if two people are ever really on the same path, or whether love just means finding someone who will keep meeting you halfway.

The truth is, when you banish the gods from the world, they eventually come back—with a vengeance. In the near future, Justin March lives in exile from the Republic of United North America. After failing in his job as an investigator of religious groups and supernatural claims, Justin is surprised when he is sent back with a peculiar assignment—to solve a string of ritualistic murders steeped in seemingly unexplainable phenomena. Justin’s return comes with an even bigger shock: His new partner and bodyguard, Mae Koskinen, is a prætorian, one of the Republic’s technologically enhanced supersoldiers. Mae’s inexplicable beauty and aristocratic upbringing attract Justin’s curiosity and desire, but her true nature holds more danger than anyone realizes. As their investigation unfolds, Justin and Mae find themselves in the crosshairs of mysterious enemies. Powers greater than they can imagine have started to assemble in the shadows, preparing to reclaim a world that has renounced religion and where humans are merely gamepieces on their board.

Belief is the answer. The territory of Lan Lumen fell almost five thousand years ago to the forces of the Dark One’s Lieutenant, the Dark Seneschal. A being from another realm of existence Using his Flawed, his Dark Flow, and his Bone Strippers he exterminated the Halfling race, trapped the Holys and then exterminated the Human race. Permanently unbalancing the Earth Mother and this Realm of existence. Using the conquered six Prime Races of the Dark from already conquered Lan Atriam against the remaining four Prime Races of the Light he systematically attacked and destroyed or occupied each of their Ancestral Homes crumbling their power and weakening the Earth Mother even more. The Faerie Grove was destroyed , it’s Archnoid sunk into the swamp. Crushing the Faerie and scattering them across the South Lands to fend for themselves. The Halfling City of Dulamar became the Dark Seneschal’s capital and the Halfling Archnode was encased in stone. The City of the Gnomes ,Wiseholm Rectory was occupied and enslaved. But the Archnode was hidden and remains undiscovered to this day. The Elven Ancestral fortress of Mia Tera fought bravely but with out her allies she eventually fell. The Elven Royals were able to escape and fled to the Secluded Vale in the Barrier Mountains where they remain hidden. But Mia Tera was Occupied by the Dark Ones and her Archnode covered from the Earth Mothers Eyes. Domitable the Great Dwarven Fortress fought on for five seasons they resisted till they were betrayed from within and the fortress fell. It too is now occupied and it’s Archnode hidden from the light. Of all the Ancestral Homes of the Prime Races of the Light only Atalan the Ancestral Home of the Humans remains untouched. Though not for lack of trying. Atalan is protected by Hawser and the other five Ore Guardians. when the Dark Seneschal attacked. Hawser alone defeated them in short order. The Seneschal sent his Flawed his Dark Flow and even his elite Bone Strippers, all creatures not of this realm, and Hawser defeated them. Finally the Dark Seneschal decided since there were no more Humans and the Ore Guardians had to stay near Atalan. There was no threat here and he withdrew. The Humans were gone from the realm so the Atalan Archnode dimmed and ceased to function as well. Even the Human’s allies the Wolves and the Gryphons pulled back from any conflict to their strong places. The Wolves staying to their traditional hunting grounds and the Gryphons to their plateau aerie fading completely from the memory of many. The attack was efficient and succeeded. Lan Lumen became the Dark Seneschal’s to do with as he pleased. But he had made one error. When he destroyed the Halflings and before the final battle with the Humans he cast a spell to trap the Holys the spiritual guide for each of the twelve Prime Races. He however mistakenly believed that because the Halflings were extinct their Holy was dead as well. His casting trapped eleven of the Holys, but there were still twelve. Since each Holy was trapped where he or she was at the time of the casting The Earth Mother, her powers dwindling, was only able to hide their location from the Dark Seneschal. He knows the are trapped but not where to find them. But he searches. For five thousand years he searches. Because he knows the killing of a Holy is an imbalance the Earth Mother can never repair. When a Holy dies she is gone forever. An Elven princess of both warrior and spiritual cast, a Faerie Swords Master and three Tarc, disgraced ones who accompany them hoping to reach achieved status and gain the honored rank of Arc, and the last Holy. These six form a team. Their task is to find and then expedite the repopulation of Lan Lumen with Humans. A realm where some animals are as intelligent as the Prime Races. Where oceans are bodies of water and seas are living things. Where creatures of legend and prehistory live. The realm of the ancient scholar Dar

From the bestselling author of The Sunday List of Dreams and Annie Freeman’s Fabulous Traveling Funeral comes a poignant, funny, and uplifting novel of a woman at midlife whose search for happiness within her marriage—and within herself—turns a whole town upside down. After twenty-eight years of marriage to her husband Lucky, Addy Lipton feels anything but happily married. In fact, just thinking of their garage, filled to the brim with Lucky’s useless junk collection, drives Addy dangerously close to plowing her car through it. But when Lucky wins a trip to paradise—aka Costa Rica—Addy has a faint hope they may be able to turn things around. Or maybe they won’t. Either way, Addy never gets the chance to find out. On the morning of their departure, Lucky fractures his back tossing their luggage into his truck. Now, with the man she feels she barely knows anymore parked indefinitely on her couch, Addy can’t see their already shaky relationship surviving much longer. It’s time to make some big changes—and some drastic choices. With the love and support of her devoutly single sister Hell and her workout friends, the Sweat-hers, Addy begins a crusade to revive her dreams—and she takes the women of Parker along for the ride. Soon the men will realize they’ll have to step up to the plate to keep their wives and lovers happy. And Addy will have to decide if the paradise she’s creating in Parker is big enough for two.... Filled with small-town characters and big-time soul searching, this sparkling and inspirational tale will hit you where you live—and show you that just as happiness can get buried beneath the jumble of years, it can be rediscovered…if you look hard enough for it within your heart.
