The Talisman of Zandria by Christine Norris

The Talisman of Zandria

by Christine Norris

The Talisman of Zandria

Adventure happens when you least expect it

Ivy Peterson is Less-Than-Ordinary. She’s so very Less-than-Ordinary that sometimes she feels invisible. She is also Not Very Brave.

But part of her wishes she could be something More, that something Extraordinary and Completely Unusual would happen. What she forgets about wishes is that they do sometimes come true.

Ivy accidentally falls into Zandria, a magical world that exists just outside her own. And she’s trapped there because someone has stolen the Talisman of Zandria, a magical amulet that controls the five gates the worlds. She and her new friends—the wizard Arden, his young apprentice Connor, and a pair of fairies—set off on a quest to recover the Talisman, a journey of discovery that will change Ivy in ways she never could have imagined.

The past is present

A young woman is killed by a hit-and-run driver, and when Ardis learns she knew the victim neither her heavy workload nor her husband’s disapproval keeps her from agreeing to help with the investigation.

The more she and Detective Larry Hopkins learn, however, the less they know; and when the man Ardis considers the prime suspect also ends up dead, the mystery just gets murkier.

Murder in Manatas by Roberta Rogow

Murders in Manatas

by Roberta Rogow

No job is ever as simple as it seems

Halvar Danske, known as the Hireling, has come to Manatas to determine whether there’s fraud afoot in the Feria. His master, the Al-Andalusian Calif Don Felipe, has had a letter from an old friend named Leon di Vicenza claiming part of the calif’s share of the Feria’s revenues is being funneled into unauthorized pockets.

It’s more than an omen when Halvar stumbles on a brutally murdered man his first morning in Manatas, and the day goes downhill from there. Is the corpse really Leon di Vincenza, or is someone staging a gigantic hoax? And what does Halvar’s childhood love Dani Glick have to do with it?

In this first pair of novellas, filk-artist and author Roberta Rogow introduces a world where Spain rules North America and a Danish soldier turned investigator is thrust into a place where the primitive nature of the surroundings is a sharp contrast to the sophisticated intrigue that plagues the island of Manatas.

Make Quilts Not War by Arlene Sachitano

Make Quilts Not War by Arlene Sachitano

Nostalgia can be deadly

It’s wintertime in Foggy Point, Washington, and tourists are as scarce as gold-plated thimbles at a thrift store. The denizens of the town decide that a colorful 1960s-themed festival is just the event to bring people out and get them moving and, hopefully, spending their money in the community.

Clad in bellbottom jeans, granny dresses and afro wigs, the Loose Threads quilt group is excited to participate in the associated quilt display. All, that is, except Jenny Logan, the only member who has an authentic quilt from that era. Reluctantly, she agrees to display and talk about her quilt.

A costumed participant is shot in front of Jenny’s quilt. Coincidence? Or is the quilt’s past endangering its owner’s future?
