The Apothecary by Samantha Jillian Bayarr

When Claire Mayfield suddenly finds herself the new heir of a property that has lain vacant for over one hundred years, she becomes leery of the rumors of the hauntings from the three young children who were said to have been murdered there. With a little encouragement from Ben, the lawyer who breaks the news of the inheritance to her, Claire agrees to explore the manor, but only on the condition that Ben accompanies her. Finding her attractive, he accepts the challenge, and the two embark on an adventure that will forever change their lives.

Despite a few distractions and bumps along the way, Claire discovers her great uncle, Dr. Blackwell’s, apothecary and traveling medicine show from the late 1800’s, and even stumbles upon clues that could help her solve her ancestor’s one hundred-year-old murder-mystery—all with a little help from a mischievous young girl who has been dead for over one hundred years.

[Corentine] by James B. Willard

What if the greatest love of your life never existed?

[Corentine] follows the narrator, a man who wants to forget his past, as he searches for his missing girlfriend, a woman who is unable to recall her own. All signs point to the involvement of a company named Synchro Systems, where doctors have been working with volunteers using experimental, cutting edge treatments for memory disorders.

The Ghost That Saw Too Much by S. Galloway

Glen becomes the only witness to the gruesome murder of a woman living in his house, but telling someone about it is nearly impossible since he’s a ghost. He finds himself reluctantly involved and desperately hoping he can silence the victim’s ghost, who just won’t stop haunting him. The dead woman’s spirit becomes more volatile each day, and her hints about her killer’s identity are an ambiguous game of charades. Glen struggles to find ways to pass along her messages to keep the investigation moving forward. Unfortunately, it seems hardly a soul can hear his clues, except for one.

After forty years as a ghost, Glen is mysteriously yanked away from the peaceful house he’s always occupied. He suddenly finds himself surrounded by the living, and facing a very different world from the one he’d left long ago. He hopes that unraveling the truth behind the murdered woman will somehow lead him back to his proper place. As he races to put together pieces of the crime and find ways to communicate to the living, he begins to fear there might be an even darker place that lies beyond being dead.

The Witches Lottery by Krystal McLaughlin

When Sophia and Drew McKibben’s parents are killed in a tragic car accident, they are shipped off to live with an aunt they never even knew existed. Believing that they are moving to a privately owned island just off of the coast of Mystic, CT to live alone with her, they are surprised to find a sort of under-aged bed and breakfast.

Sophia draws the attention of one of the locals, Falen, immediately. He always seems to know exactly what she is thinking, and to her frustration, everything she does seems to amuse him. When a newcomer to the island brings with him a sense of deja vu, she begins to ask herself the ultimate question: Am I going crazy?

Sophia’s world starts to unravel when she notices her own brother acting just as abnormal as the rest of them. When she begins to realize that the life she left behind looks even more bizarre then the one she was forced to leave it for, she’s faced with a decision to make: embrace the new life that has been given to her, or drown in the past. Either choice brings with it more secrets and deceptions to unearth. The problem now is that the two worlds may actually be more intertwined than she thought.

Hush Money by Susan Bischoff

They call their abilities Talents, and that’s what they call themselves as well. Talents are people born with supernatural powers, feared by the population at large. Possession of an “unregistered ability” has become illegal, and those who are discovered are forcibly removed to government-run research facilities. For Talents, keeping their secret is the most important thing in their lives. For some, that need for secrecy begins to define who they are.

That’s how it is for Joss, a high school girl who does everything in her power to go unnoticed. She’s incredibly bright, but strives to maintain grades that are good yet not too good. She doesn’t participate in school activities, keeps quiet in class, eats by herself. Despite her longtime crush on Dylan, she wouldn’t even think about trying to talk to him. Joss doesn’t make friends of any kind, because friends can draw attention, friends can make you slip up, friends can make things complicated.

When new girl, Kat, steps in to rescue Joss from an uncomfortable situation with Marco, the class jerk, she doesn’t realize what she’s getting into, and it blows up in her face. Joss finds herself torn between a desire to do the right thing, to find some way to help a girl who was kind to her; and her need to mind her own business and fade into. For the first time, Joss begins to question the way she operates, and starts to long for connections with other people–especially a connection with Dylan, who’s finally starting to talk to her.

But what’s up with Dylan’s sudden interest? As Marco’s best friend, can he be trusted at all?

It’s bad enough when a girl’s got to worry about friends, boys, over-protective dads, and shoes that pinch, but when you throw in blackmail, government agents with guns, and really annoying little sisters…that’s just about too much to handle, even for a girl with an ass-kicking superpower.
