Pasta Imperfect by Maddy Hunter, Amazon Kindle format

It was an offer she couldn't refuse …

The discount travel package to Italy seemed like a great deal: Emily Andrew could lead her globe-trotting Iowans on the trip of a lifetime and bring her family to boot. Maybe she should have read the fine print … .Sharing their itinerary with a group of hyper-competitive aspiring romance writers is just a prelude to more Machiavellian drama than an Italian opera.

First, their hotel burns to the ground. Then, when Emily's lost luggage turns up found, the disgruntled literary ladies raid her clothing supply like she's a one-woman Gucci outlet. But the real killer is a contest sponsored by a publishing house — and the depths to which the dime-novel divas will plunge to win a book contract. Amid backstabbing and catcalling, bodies start turning up — in Emily's favorite outfits! Now, Emily will need more than a phrasebook to say ciao to someone with a hot and spicy passion for murder.

Vistas into the lives of movie celebrities, fashion designers and models open to reveal the dark side of fashion merchandising in Los Angeles.

The luster of the rich and famous is tarnished by ruthless businessmen allied with shadowy underworld characters. They engage in schemes to plunder the fashion world while exploiting undocumented workers and shattering the dreams of aspiring fashion models.

From the bohemian environs of Venice Beach, arise a group of vigilante rogues who join together when necessary to settle things outside the law, to uphold justice when legal remedies fail or flounder. They react swiftly to counter the treacheries of interlopers who threaten the safety and welfare of nearby communities. This time Ty Malone leads the way.

The Babe Ruth Deception by David O. Stewart

The Babe Ruth Deception by David O. Stewart, a Jamie Fraser and Speed Cook Mystery (3rd in series)

Publisher: Kensington

The Babe Ruth Deception by David O. Stewart, Amazon Kindle format

Babe Ruth, the Sultan of Swat, is having a record-breaking season in his first year as a New York Yankee. In 1920, he will hit more home runs than any other team in the American League. Larger than life on the ball field and off, Ruth is about to discover what the Chicago White Sox players accused of throwing the 1919 World Series are learning — baseball heroes are not invulnerable to scandal. With suspicion in the air, Ruth's 1918 World Series win for the Boston Red Sox is now being questioned. Under scrutiny by the new baseball commissioner and enmeshed with gambling kingpin Arnold Rothstein, Ruth turns for help to Speed Cook — a former professional ballplayer himself before the game was segregated and now a promoter of Negro baseball — who's familiar with the dirty underside of the sport.

Cook in turn enlists the help of Dr. Jamie Fraser, whose wife Eliza is coproducing a silent film starring the Yankee outfielder. Restraint does not come easily to the reckless Ruth, but the Frasers try to keep him in line while Cook digs around.

As all this plays out, Cook's son Joshua and Fraser's daughter Violet are brought together by a shocking tragedy. But an interracial relationship in 1920 feels as dangerous as a public scandal — even more so because Joshua is heavily involved in bootlegging. Trying to protect Ruth and their own children, Fraser and Cook find themselves playing a dangerous game.

The Second Man by Emelle Gamble, Amazon Kindle format

Her first love is back in town … and so is a murderer. Could they be one and the same man?

Jill Farrell's college reunion is coming up, but she wants no part of it. The man she once loved, Swedish exchange student Max Kallstrom, is rumored to be attending, but that doesn't tempt her because Max disappeared from her life the night before the graduation, and has never been heard from since.

While she is curious about why he never contacted her, she is intent on protecting her still tender heart from being further humiliated. And when her ex-husband, Andrew Denton, knocks on her door and announces he wants to make nice, and, oh, by the way, one of their class alumni might be a murderer, Jill's resolve to avoid the event hardens.

Jill doesn't have the time or emotional resources to deal with either man from her past as she is also facing one of the most daunting challenges of her life, coping with her mother's early onset Alzheimer's disease. She shuts Andrew's efforts to reconnect down, and tries to put Max out of her mind.

And that's that, until a second man knocks on her door, and the emotions of a time long ago overtakes her. Max Kallstrom is back, and he tells Jill she's the reason he has come to California. He asks her to please let him explain why she hasn't heard from him for fifteen long years.

She's willing to listen to what he has to say, but immediately realizes that her memories must guide her through a wrenching and dangerous few days. While her heart remembers a handsome young lover, she and her classmates are all different people now, and the reality of a murdered friend proves she can't trust everyone.

What's not so clear is if she should trust anyone … especially Max Kallstrom, who is many things, including a man with a secret.
