Greetings. Well, we made it to the holidays. Whew! Wherever you are in the world, I hope your plans include spending time with family and friends. So much has happened this year—not all of it good. In case you’re feeling anxious, here are a couple of stories to brighten your day.

Can Ruby save her parents’ marriage? Maybe, with a little help.
A year ago, Alan and Stacey Navarro separated, leaving their daughter, Ruby, to live with her mom and an over-caffeinated Shih Tzu. People split up all the time, and most kids might learn to deal. Not Ruby.
A bright, funny fourteen-year-old who loves shoes and horror movies, Ruby is on an insane mission to get her parents back together. But she can’t do it alone.
She needs her two best friends, a dog named Ed Wood, an arrogant filmmaker, a bizarre collection of actors–and a chainsaw-wielding movie killer. Yeah, it’ll be fine.
If you enjoy gripping police procedurals, check out Hey You, Pretty Face by Linda Coles. The story is moving and the protagonist kind. Honestly, I expected the typical tortured cop with a broken marriage and a drinking problem. DC Jack Rutherford will surprise you. Read my review here.
An abandoned baby. Three girls stolen in the night. Two connected cases?

While searching for the young mother, evidence of an organized crime ring almost breaks his heart leaving Jack wondering how he can put so many wrongs, right. Welcome to the human race…
Can he solve the case before the girls are lost forever?
