Your Book Vacation 107


Gathering WaterGathering Water by Regan Claire

Della Doe Deare isn’t like most people. Most people begin their life on the day they enter the world; the day they’re born. Della, well, hers began on the day she turned eighteen. After all, it was the day she first heard her real name, and that of her mothers. With nothing but a couple of duffel bags and a folder full of questions, she travels home to coastal North Carolina to claim the house she inherited from a grandmother she never knew.

She has two goals: discover why her mother ran away from home all those years ago, and avoid the family that had left her to rot in an inept foster care system. Hard to do when the family she’s been trying to avoid is dragging her into an unimaginable world… a world on the brink of war, and both sides want her dead.

All Della ever wanted was to know who she was, but the journey to self-discovery might just lead to her destruction.

Mortified by her past, she embarks on a journey of redemption and falls for Kyle, the “geek” she once tormented. Yet all the time she wonders if, when her memories return, she’ll become the bully she was before…and if she’ll lose Kyle.

First and OnlyFirst and Only by Peter Flannery

Do you believe in psychics?

What if there really was someone who could see into the future, read people’s thoughts and move things with their mind? What kind of person would they be and how would they reveal themselves to the world?

Psimon is just such a man, a real and genuine psychic. But Psimon has a problem. In five days time he is going to die at the hands of a serial killer known only as Lucifer. His only hope is to enlist the services of former SAS soldier, Steve Brennus, a man whose family life and business have just collapsed in ruins.

Psimon knows he is going to die. He has seen it. But could a former SAS soldier have the strength to overcome the visions of the world’s first psychic?


With a small cast of engaging characters, blistering pace and a beautifully drawn villain, FIRST AND ONLY is a great thriller and an impressive debut novel. From the intensity of the first scene to the dramatic and satisfying climax the story pauses just enough for readers to catch their breath. Do not take this book to bed if you fancy an early night. You have been warned.

City of the FallenCity of the Fallen by Diana Bocco

Five years ago, vampires came out of hiding and took over the world. It was meant to be a quick enslavement but it turned into a bloody battle that brought humanity to the brink of extinction.

Isabelle Bryant is one of the “lucky” survivors, now living in hiding, scavenging for food through deserted towns.

And she’s tired of it.

So she’s devised a plan: find the king of the vampires and drive a stake through his heart.

Except that wickedly sensual king Marcus is nothing like the monster she expected. And while landing on his bed was part of the plan all along, discovering that he might hold the key to humanity’s survival certainly wasn’t. The catch? Saving humanity also means ensuring vampire survival. It means giving up hope for a return to a human-ruled world.

As sparks fly and hate becomes heat, Isabelle must pick a side — before the darkness devours them all.
