She was already there early the next morning when Michael arrived from Ajodhya in a tuk-tuk. She was gazing out across the water, at the finger of mist clinging to the lake. She did not look up. He wondered if she had heard him arrive. Then she blew a bubble of gum and it spattered across his nose. He laughed and she turned around. 'You teach me this trick.’ 'Ly May,' he said.'

She is introduced to life as a bar girl in Bangkok. But Ly May is a survivor and what gets her through is the memory the pilot who befriended her in the Long Tieng air base and tried to save her life. Finally she ends up on the arm of Douglas Ho, one of the major players in the international heroin trade and number two in a Hong Kong triad. And that's when she meets her saviour again; but now he is with an American drug enforcement agency.
The stakes are excruciatingly high; the Chinese are expanding onto the US western seaboard and the potential profits are breathtaking. Douglas Ho will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Does Ly May stay with the rich life she has been so lucky to find or stay true to the man who helped her as a child and risk everything, her millionaire life and even her life? From the heroin factories of the Golden Triangle to the drug banks of California and Bangkok, from bloody gun battles in San Francisco's Chinatown to the palaces of the super rich in Hong Kong, this is a rollercoaster journey that will leave you breathless to the last page.

The Survival of Thomas Ford – John A. A. Logan

Genre – Thriller

Rating – R

4.0 (98 reviews)

Free until 28 August 2013

Thomas Ford is the only survivor of the car crash which killed his wife. He is also the only witness who would be willing to identify the young, reckless driver who caused the crash. But the driver has no intention of ever letting himself be identified, not to mention what his father’s intentions are…or those of his girlfriend, Lorna, the hospital cleaner.
The young driver’s father is Jack McCallum, the powerful entrepreneur who has built a housing empire, McCallum Homes, on the high hills surrounding the city. Jack has his own dark secret to protect, as well as his business edifice to hold onto. There is no way in the world that Jack McCallum will ever let anything threaten the future of McCallum Homes.
Robert Ferguson, the passenger who was with the young driver on the day of the crash, curses himself for ever getting into the car. He watches carefully to see what the universe will do about it all, and he thinks he can hear the gears and chambers of the universe’s engine, rolling terribly towards them, out of the future, and he knows he can’t cope with that, not even if he takes his medication.
In the end, destiny will pull them all far out of the city, some of them to the moonlit hillside, where white butterflies and mysterious gas fill the air, and wild cats wrap themselves around cold trees. Jack McCallum’s trusted Polish foreman, Lanski, will recognise the place from the folklore-wilderness of his own childhood, a place where death can come stalking in the form of a white wolf, but perhaps also redemption can appear, for those like Thomas Ford who seek it.
In any case, the young driver has it in mind to take his destiny into his own hands now, which will soon lead to the life of a second young woman hanging in the balance, awaiting salvation or destruction, perhaps only the Fates, or the wind that blows through the trees, know which.

Queen of the Court – Melanie Howard & Andrea Leidolf

Amazon Kindle US

Amazon Kindle UK

Genre – Fiction

Rating – PG13

4.5 (11 reviews)

Free until 25 August 2013

Members are fond of saying that nothing ever changes at Belle Vista Country Club, where for nearly a century, the socially prominent and politically connected have played tennis and golf together, met and married each other, and kept aloof from the general public, all while consuming copious amounts of alcohol.
But with one swipe of a wrecking ball, down tumbles the club’s hand-carved stone sign, and with it, life as Belle Vista has known it comes to a shattering end.
Scandal arrives in the form of ex- stripper Shana Lee Jones and her television crew, who turn the century-old haven for the rich and powerful into the stage for Queen of the Court, a reality show that, in the hands of failed producer Rex Range, promises to be anything but tasteful. The Belle Vista board has sold a majority interest in the nearly bankrupt club to Shana’s husband, strip club owner and reformed outlaw biker Wayne Jones, to the distress of the elite membership, especially socialite Allie Beech and her domineering mother, Lavinia Winter.
Shana, a West Virginia dropout with a big heart hiding under her substantial chest, believes that she’s bought social respectability, along with a spot on Allie’s prestigious Belle Vista Ladies’ Tennis Team. She hopes that along with prestige and fame, belonging to Belle Vista will provide her with a circle of friends that will help fill the empty space she carries within her, and make her forget the secret she’s hidden from everyone, even her husband.
Little does Shana realize that, under their designer clothes and Botoxed facades, the Bitches of Belle Vista are hiding their own secrets; drinking, drugs, affairs, bankruptcy - maybe even murder.
Beautiful Taylor Thomas has a dysfunctional marriage and a bad habit of combining pills, liquor and triple-shot lattes before tennis matches. Divorcee Caroline Walinsky engages in random binges of eating, shopping (and shoplifting) while her mortgage goes unpaid. The second Mrs. Walinsky, former Russian junior champion Elena Dragunova, looks like a centerfold, plays like a Williams sister and dispatches her enemies on and off the court like Vladimir Putin. Karen Baker, a type-A Catholic school girl taking a ‘break’ from her high-pressure career to start a family, discovers that country club life offers sinful temptations she may not be able to resist.
Allie, determined to remain queen of this unlikely group, will stop at nothing to see her upstart rival Shana disgraced and driven from Belle Vista. But when she begins to delve into the disappearance of eccentric heiress Pippa Edgemoor in pursuit of her fortune, she unearths a secret that could destroy Belle Vista and her own family.
From the elite country club suburbs of the nation’s capital to the ramshackle trailer parks of West Virginia to the quirky environs of Brooklyn Heights, Queen of the Court combines the unlikely elements of reality television, murder, mayhem and country club tennis in a hilarious saga of social satire that will keep you entertained from beginning to end.

The beautifully illustrated picture book, Someone Please Open a Window, is a story for the whole family of the journey of a boy and his grandpa in search of the light. The journey begins on a bench in a park, under an old tree. While playing with the boy's ball, it starts growing bigger and bigger. They climb onto it and are carried by the wind, and then, by the birds, to a beautiful garden. In the garden there is a huge tree with a door. They enter into a hall inside the trunk, and they see a king's throne with a crown resting on its seat. An elf appears and gives them two keys and a message from an invisible king: They need to open the window and bring light into the dark hall, only then the King will appear…
The story tells of an adventure that requires courage, persistence and dedication in the face of obstacles, in the end of which our heroes, the boy and Grandpa, fulfill their mission with great success. It is a fantasy story that can be read as an imaginative adventure or as a dream tale; however it is actually a symbolic story of spiritual journey, in which every station is an opportunity for experiencing a different aspect in life.
