Our Endless Numbered Days: A Novel cover
Book Review

Part fairy-tale, part magic, yet always savagely realistic Claire Fuller's haunting and powerful debut Our Endless Numbered Days will appeal to fans of Eowyn Ivey's The Snow Child and Christian Baker Kline's Orphan Train .


Peggy Hillcoat is eight years old when her survivalist father, James, takes her from their home in London to a remote hut in the woods and tells her that the rest of the world has been destroyed. Deep in the wilderness, Peggy and James make a life for themselves. They repair the hut, bathe in water from the river, hunt and gather food in the summers and almost starve in the harsh winters. They mark their days only by the sun and the seasons. When Peggy finds a pair of boots in the forest and begins a search for their owner, she unwittingly begins to unravel the series of events that brought her to the woods and, in doing so, discovers the strength she needs to go back to the home and mother she thought she’d lost. After Peggy's return to civilization, her mother learns the truth of her escape, of what happened to James on the last night out in the woods, and of the secret that Peggy has carried with her ever since....

Fogged Inn (A Maine Clambake Mystery Book 4) cover
Book Review

An autumn chill has settled over Busman's Harbor, Maine, but Julia Snowden is warming up the town by offering lobster stew at the local diner. When her landlord discovers a dead body in the walk-in refrigerator, Julia must figure out who ordered up a side of murder.

Book Review

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Macon Leary is a travel writer who hates both travel and anything out of the ordinary.

Claimed By The Cowboys: (Billionaire Western Cowboy Menage Contemporary Romance) cover
Book Review

Rose's plans for a normal, perfect life ended up anything but.
Many months after her husband's passing, she takes a job at a dude ranch, purely because of the revolving door of wanna-be cowboys that she knows are looking for the full cowboy experience, including a warm, willing, no-strings-attached woman warming their bunk at night.

Only Rose didn't expect that it would be the ranch's owners who would claim her attentions instead. Hot brothers Cade and Kevin, together, keep Rose way busier than any dude ranch guests ever could. The billionaire cowboys each run one part of the ranch's operation. Kevin runs the working ranch, taking care of the cattle and such, while Cade controls the dude ranch portion, but Rose soon discovers a third income stream the two rich cowboys hadn't revealed in the hot interview process...

Note: This story was originally published as a two piece serial, written by Jamie Klaire. Once Jamie Klaire decided to separate cowboy romances from her short story pen name, Jenny Klaire was born.

This story does have 50% more now than it used to. Due to reader requests, I put the original parts 1 and 2 toget...
