When her six-year-old nephew vanishes from a neighborhood carnival, Aubrey Lynd's safe, snow-globe world fractures; it shatters when the FBI's investigation raises questions about her own family that Aubrey can't answer. Aubrey picks apart the inconsistencies to expose the first of many lies: a ransom note—concealed from the FBI—with a terrifying and impossible ultimatum. Aubrey doesn't know what to believe or whom to trust. The abduction is clearly personal—but why would someone play a high-stakes game with the life of a child? The more she presses for answers, the more Aubrey is convinced that her mother is hiding something.
Desperate to save her young nephew, Aubrey must face harsh truths and choose between loyalty to her family and doing the right thing. And she'd better hurry, because vengeance sets its own schedule, and time is running out.

What does a woman have to do to prove she belongs in the Undercity? Sure, I’m unclassed and only half paranormal, but that doesn’t mean I can’t solve cases. Since the established PI’s won’t acknowledge my right to a territory, I’m taking jobs from whoever will hire me, doing what I do best…proving myself to be a bad-ass problem solver. Which is how I find myself breaking into Zaid’s house, looking for a talisman my witch client says the very powerful vampire stole.
Now, I can make flowers grow, hear the wind’s whispers and talk to animals, but I don’t have the gift of seeing the future. If I did, I’d have known not to take this case. Because no matter the outcome, nothing good can come from messing with the Guicai Talisman, or it’s far too gorgeous guardian.

THE TUMBLING TURNER SISTERS
On-Sale: June 14, 2016
The four Turner sisters agree on very few things, but on one point they’re in accord: none of them has any interest in performing. Nell is happily married with a baby of her own; 13-year-old Kit’s greatest wish is to stop growing taller; Winnie’s love of learning has her yearning for college; and Gert knows that she wants to live a better life than her mother’s. In 1919, the Turners are barely scraping by. When their father loses his job and their tenuous place barely above the poverty line is threatened, their mother decides to enter her family into the world of vaudeville.
Traveling by train from town to town, the Turner women find a new kind of freedom in the company of performers who are diverse as their acts. Along the way, the Turners face dangers and turns of fate for which they could never have prepared.
Told in turn by shy Winnie and headstrong Gert, THE TUMBLING TURNER SISTERS (Gallery Books; June 14, 2016; Hardcover; $24.99) is a story of awakening – to unexpected possibilities, to love and heartbreak, and to the dawn of a New American era. Continue Reading
