A brand-new book in the harrowing and heartwarming Supper Club Mystery series by New York Times bestselling author Ellery Adams and Agatha Award–winning author Rosemary Stevens!

Librarian James Henry and his supper club sleuths will take a trip down memory lane searching for clues that will help catch a killer . . .

When the cast of the old Hearth and Home TV show gather for a twenty-fifth reunion at a local bed-and-breakfast where the show was filmed, the townsfolk are thrilled to meet the actors and relive their memories of a simpler time. Their nostalgic mood is broken, though, by an ambitious real estate developer who has also come to Quincy’s Gap with an eye toward turning the quiet town into the South’s hottest new tourist destination. Tensions are boiling over, and when the developer gets a little too sauced one night at the B&B and turns…

Summer Time * Reading Loss help

Tuesday & Hope you had a great 3 day holiday. We are on Summer Break but learning doesn’t stop at our house & I am sure you are the same .

Summer Reading Loss :

On the  average, students’ achievement scores declined over summer vacation by one month’s worth of school-year learning,

(2) declines were sharper for math than for reading, and

(3) the extent of loss was larger at higher grade levels. Importantly, they also concluded that income-based reading gaps grew over the summer, given that middle class students tended to show improvement in reading skills while lower-income students tended to experience loss.

How to combat it ?

TheBrightestDayEbookCover 1.jpg
Perrier Simmons has always lived life on the safety–never reckless, always careful. And now, as a resident in her pathology program, she is poised to become a double board certified forensic pathologist.

Thom Edwards is caught in his fate when he learns he has cancer. But to tell Perrie, the woman he loves and who has lost so much already, is harder than dying.

Perrie can’t see the path Thom is on. She never could, even years ago when neither of them expected the deep connection they felt, or how that connection could grow so fast from friendship into something more. Something deep and pure and life-changing…When Thom and Perrie met on that bright summer day at UCSF medical school, so many years ago, it was unclear who saved whom. And when they separate for their respective residency programs they make more important discoveries.

But as Thom’s cancer grows, Perrie is kept farther from the truth.

The Brightest Day concludes the story of two people who met at the right time–a heartbreakingly romantic novel that asks, what do you do when you have to hide the truth from the one you love most, in order to save them?

The Brightest Night must be read before reading The Brightest Day.

The Brightness series is the story about what it means to love with your soul, to sacrifice, to experience grief and blinding joy. To live life with the pain, and the beauty, without knowing if you will be able to smile through tears and still know you wouldn’t have changed a thing.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

If she isn’t writing, she is probably reading, binge watching anything on Netflix, or imaging crazy scenarios in her head that will probably never happen. When she is not spending time with her imaginary book friends, she is buried in her Pre-Med classes at the University of Iowa, and a happy English major.

Featured Story Teasers:

Hero by Stacy-Deanne

She ran her fingers through his hair, touching his scalp. “I’ve wanted you since you first came to my house.”

“When you were flirting?” He chuckled, massaging her breasts. “How does this feel?”

“Good.” She leaned back on the shelf, moaning. “Kiss’em.”

Scott kissed her breasts, tracing his tongue along the brown areola.

“Yes.” She got that swishing motion in her stomach as if she were falling over a cliff. “Yes, Scott.”

Inner Girl Rising by Jan Springer

“You like it, don’t you, having the two of us taking you?” Andrew whispered. His voice was dark and deep and it’s huskiness rippled along her sensitized nerve endings. Andrew’s palm moved away and fingers teasingly trailed around her slit. Involuntarily, Paisley bucked against him, needing penetration. Andrew chuckled.

“Spread your legs wider, sweetheart. Nice and wide,” he ordered.

An Unexpected Twist by Krista Ames

“Don’t be sorry Kelsey, you are beautiful and I love touching your body. I just wanted to make sure you were okay with it.”

While she watched, still straddling his thighs, he pulled his t-shirt off, then picked her off his legs and laid her on the bed beside him.

“Can I take these off?” His fingers were hovering at the waist band of the shorts that he’d never be able to wear again without picturing her.

“If I can take off yours?”

He jumped off the bed in a split second, grabbed her ankles and pulled her closer to the edge. “Have at it.”

Love Potion by Cara Marsi

She wanted him suddenly, wanted all of him, body and soul, in a way she’d never wanted any other man. Hungrily she wound her arms around his neck and lifted her face for his kiss. He was quick to deliver. His lips, soft at first, grew more demanding, and Nicole’s whole body seemed to come alive at his touch. She opened to him, twining her tongue with his in an erotic dance. When he slid his hand up her ribcage to caress her breast through the thin fabric of the tank top, she groaned. He lay back, pulling her with him until she was on top of him.

Mr. Delicious by Khardine Gray

You never forget your first love.

Mister Write Now by Nikky Kaye

Sophy cleared her throat and opened the book again, projecting her voice to the far corners of the library. “Clarissa reached out and tangled her fingers in his soft hair, pulling him closer to her quivering nest of desire.”

Somewhere in the distance she heard a gasp and she blinked at the words swimming on the page in front of her, realizing she had lost her place. She would not be embarrased.

Her voice rose as she skipped ahead a few sentences to finish the paragraph. “–she melted against the scratchy straw at her back and her body tensed in anticipation.”

When she turned back to Max, she saw the strangled expression on his face and the small flush in the hollow of his throat, exposed by his starched white shirt. Even though he looked as though he wanted to crawl under the table and die, he gazed at her with a mixture of fascination and something more dangerous.

The Millionaire by Lisa Marbly-Warir

“What are you doing here?” Quisha asked as she opened the door with a towel wrapped around her still damp body.

Without answering he kissed her. She gave in to the kiss. The chemistry between them had been slowly growing and neither of them could deny it. He picked her up and carried her to her bedroom and removed her towel…

Why Not by Dana Kenzi

The pleasure was too much for her, and she screamed when her climax hit. Her back arched off the bed, and Ryan thrust his fingers deep into her. His mouth somehow remained attached to her clit, and he licked her through her orgasm.

His attentions carried her through the waves until she felt too sensitive to continue. Ryan pulled his fingers out and kissed her stomach.

Sadie was exhausted, but she wanted him to know how satisfied she was.

Without Reservation by Lynn Burke

“Give us one night,” Jack said. “Please.”

She peered into his eyes, temptation swirling through her body. Just one night. She wouldn’t see them again, anyway, right? No harm in one little fling. Checked off number one bucket list desire…

Trevor kissed her palm. “Please.”

Tempting Asher by Ja’Nese Dixon

I mistakenly looked into his chestnut eyes, stepping forward and I freeze. Accepting the heated offer in his eyes would only make this awful situation worse. I can’t crack.

I can’t pretend I asked, and he agreed. Asher couldn’t possibly love me and grand a hall pass. Could he?

Bossy Boots by Nicole Morgan

He thrust forward. Pushing himself inside, reaching parts of her he’d only ever dreamt about. Her body arched into his. Their breaths heavy, their bodies hot and sticky despite the cool desert wind. Neither of them spoke, each of them pushing against and with one another.
