Wretched Fate: Book Two of the Sam Osborne Mystery Series

Wretched Fate: Book Two of the Sam Osborne Mystery Series

by Kelly Kobayashi The first case in the Sam Osborne mystery series, Twist of Fate, introduced readers to private investigator Sam, his newest client Casey Lewis, and their unlikely ally Danny Jones. Barricaded into the bull’s eye of danger by a blizzard, the trio worked together to unmask the shadowy assailant who was stalking Casey with intent to kill. While Sam focused on evidence and alibies, Danny found himself bound to Casey as an amateur bodyguard… and gradually much, much more. Now our heroes return in the greatly-anticipated second installment, Wretched Fate! This case has Sam sleuthing out the disappearance of treasured Kuan Yin statues from the home of romance novelist Jacob Hardy. These statues have been Jacob’s solace and inspiration, and their disappearance has unsettled his very structured life. Rosalie McGovern, a recently-hired typing assistant, has also disrupted his surroundings, causing Jacob to question his novels, his life’s purpose, and his sheltered heart. Sam Osborne has been described by his creators—mother/daughter writing team F. Sharon Swope and Genilee Swope-Parente—as an ‘old-fashioned gumshoe,’ a sort of ‘tidy Columbo.’ Their books feature solid detective work and richly-developed characters with relationships that readers want to root for. Always an element of romance and a dose of danger, Sam Osborne is definitely on the case! Both Twist of Fate and Wretched Fate are available in paperback and ebook through Amazon and Barnes & Noble!

Standing in the Wind’s Shadow – Coming Soon!

Standing in the Wind’s Shadow – Coming Soon!

by Kelly Kobayashi What’s in a name? Ashleigh Galvin’s next installment to her Amethyst Series has been ominously titled Standing in the Wind’s Shadow. This new book picks up right where Birth by Fire’s Embrace left off. Finding herself in a new world and new school for the magically-gifted, Sharrlette Moore is now on a mission to study, make friends, prepare for the ritual “awakening” of her true potential, and… continue to butt heads with Master Billeaphrin. Though the wind itself can never cast a shadow, Shar’s guide into this strange, war-ravaged world is Billeaphrin, a Master over the power of Air. Shar has been kept alive by Billea, but can he still be trusted now that they’ve abandoned her realm for his? Dark forces are closing in and her sharp-tongued mentor is growing more and more demanding. Just as with the first book in this series, the small-burst action, the full-scale battles, and the banter all play with a visual, film-like quality. This time, however, the threat is looming from all possible sides. Shar is no longer in her own mortal world with evil hunting for her like a needle in a haystack; instead she is smack in the middle of the war. The danger is palpable, as is the sense of an inevitable count-down. Shar’s mentors, friends, and even her rivals are all put on the line when evil finds her again. Has she learned enough about her power to survive, or is she standing defenselessly in her own shadow? – COMING SOON!
