Remind Me (Mystic Beach Fantasy Rockstar Romances #4) by Aislinn Archer
Recipe for a Delicious Love Story:
• 1 spicy rockstar
• 1 salty chef
• a sweet first love
• a bitter break-up
• a dash of revenge, served cold
• a menu that's truly magical
— Mix well. Serve steaming hot in a quirky little beach town.
They’d dreamed of a future together, even at 17. But one crazy night, one huge mistake and the rising star of his rock-god life tore that future apart. Twelve years later, fate’s pulled them together again. Will she serve him bitter just desserts, or together will they cook up a magical second-chance romance?
This was supposed to be a vacation, a chance to rest, relax and record. But as soon as I saw it -- this same town, the boardwalk, the quaint little restaurants… The worst thing I ever did came back to haunt me. I thought I was doing the right thing back then, leaving her. But finding her here again… Why does it feel like fate wanted to bring us back together? All I know is I can’t get her out of my head, now that I’ve seen her again. But then she’s never really been out of my head, or my heart. And it’s past time I told her that.
He didn’t leave me at the altar, but in some ways it was even worse. Never again, I said. So I locked my heart away and put my passion into my other dream. Twelve years later, my restaurant is on the cusp of real success. So why is it now that he shows up again, determined to tear down the walls I built to keep myself safe? He’s already throwing me off my game in the kitchen. But if he thinks I’m falling for that rockstar charm -- again -- he’s got a big surprise coming.
“Remind Me,” Book 4 in the Mystic Beach Fantasy Rockstar Romance series, is a first-love, second-chance romance, with an enemies-to-lovers streak that goes just one way. Declan wants to make up for his past mistakes. Callie wants to make him pay. The way to a man’s heart might be through his stomach, but Callie’s uniquely qualified to serve up a tasting menu of retribution — heartache on a platter; pain à la mode; revenge, served cold. Can Declan reignite the flames of long-ago love and thaw Callie’s heart for good?

Misfire (Kate Downey Medical Mystery, #2) by Tammy Euliano
A device that can save a life is also one that can end it
Kadence, a new type of implanted defibrillator, misfires in a patient visiting University Hospital for a routine medical procedure—causing the heart rhythm problem it's meant to correct. Dr. Kate Downey, an experienced anesthesiologist, resuscitates the patient, but she grows concerned for a loved one who recently received the same device—her beloved Great-Aunt Irm.
When a second device misfires, Kate turns to Nikki Yarborough, her friend and Aunt Irm's cardiologist. Though Nikki helps protect Kate's aunt, she is prevented from alerting other patients by the corporate greed of her department chairman. As the inventor of the device and part owner of MDI, the company he formed to commercialize it, he claims that the device misfires are due to a soon-to-be-corrected software bug. Kate learns his claim is false.
The misfires continue as Christian O'Donnell, a friend and lawyer, comes to town to facilitate the sale of MDI. Kate and Nikki are drawn into a race to find the source of the malfunctions, but threats to Nikki and a mysterious murder complicate their progress. Are the seemingly random shocks misfires, or are they attacks?
A jaw-dropping twist causes her to rethink everything she once thought she knew, but Kate will stop at nothing to protect her aunt and the other patients whose life-saving devices could turn on them at any moment.

She and her family are targeted and in danger. Who or what is causing the chaos? All signs point to the mysterious disappearance of her mother - way back when Hayden was just two days old. Can she identify and eliminate the threat before another person in her life is stolen away? Can she learn more about the secrets kept for her lifetime? With the help of her high-spirited sidekick cat, and a host of new family and friends, Hayden finds herself surrounded with support as she solves the mystery of the death and learns shocking secrets about herself. Book 3 – The Ghost Camper’s Tall Tales A mysterious old man keeps popping up to tell Hayden a series of tall tales. Who is he? And is he actually glowing? Are his stories fiction, or is he telling her the history of her family, the enchanted islands, and the witch? And why did a dead body show up . . . of someone who is already dead? Can Hayden and her quirky sidekick, Latifa unscramble this mystery? Hayden’s adventures in the magical world of Destiny Falls continue in this gripping story that answers your questions about the mysterious world she entered through a mirror in book one, Falling into Magic.
