Storm Watch By Patricia Bow
Paperback: $11.39
Prints in 3-5 business days
Loyalty to a friend brings Cally Macdonald to green, idyllic Stone Face Island. But instead of sun and serenity she finds a bitter family conflict rooted in tragedy, and a history of murder going... More > back centuries. Despite her faith in her friend Sheila, and affection for Noel, Sheila’s twin, Cally is drawn to the grim, silent adopted brother, Matthew, even though the twins seem to fear and hate him. Muddying the clear northern waters, Cally’s charming ex-fiancé, Aubrey, has been hired as piano coach for Ginevra, a girl crippled by a fall from the island cliff. And the memories of Ginevra’s dead mother, and Matt’s vanished former girlfriend, still haunt the island. As the atmosphere of jealousy and suspicion thickens, so do the heat, drought, and threat of fire. Violent incidents: a prowler in the woods, a sabotaged canoe, a vandalized cottage, hint at approaching disaster. When the storm breaks, Cally will need all her courage and wits just to stay alive, and to save the lives of those she loves.< Less

It’s a dream job — a chance to model the fabulous outfits designed by Jones & Hewens for their new Corduroy Rose label. For Sally, Tasha and Fay, it’s a way to end the summer... More > on a high note before school begins. And it doesn’t hurt a bit that head designer Peter Hewens is stunningly handsome in a dark and brooding style. But a shadow has marred the glamour. A guest was killed during one of the showings at wealthy homes, and a series of thefts may be linked to the murder. And then Peter’s young sister Valerie vanishes, leaving signs that convince the police of her guilt. Before she “ran away” she asked Sally Sharp for help, but never had a chance to say why she was afraid. At 17, Sally is already well known as a problem-solver. Suspecting that Val was set up, she takes the case. It pits Sally, Tasha and Fay against the police, against Peter — who bafflingly refuses to cooperate — and against a pair of vengeful teens who mean to bring Sally to a permanent and very unglamorous end.< Less
Glimmer By Patricia Bow

No one now living can tell you what it was like to dance in the old Glimmer Lake pavilion. You will only hear what the survivors told their children: how on a warm summer evening it was a magical... More > place, lilting with music and laughter. But that was long ago, before the pavilion’s collapse took so many young lives. Now it stands derelict. Ice crusts its broken arches. On some clear nights (it’s said), you can see the faces of the dead beneath the ice of the lake, their eyes glimmering up at the moon. Stella, a sceptic to her core, laughs at such stories. Until she finds herself saddled with a mission: to free three souls trapped by the events of that solstice night in 1926, when a Faustian bargain went awry. It doesn’t help that her backup team are a beloved but impulsive sister and two new friends, brothers who may both be vulnerable to the effects of that Faustian bargain. And that her chief advisor only comes to her in dreams.< Less
Fear of Dark Water By Patricia Bow

Ever hear of Jenny Greenteeth? That’s a kind of hag that lives in dangerous pools, so the folktales say. She grabs kids by the ankles and drags them down to drown. Of course we know how... More > stories like that get started. They were invented to keep kids from danger. You know, the bogeyman strategy. “Don’t you play near that pool, or Jenny Greenteeth will get you!” Only, suppose it’s not a story? Suppose it’s real? Jo’s fear of dark water is not just fear, it’s a full-blown, stomach-churning, paralyzing phobia. Determined to beat it, she dares to swim in this forest-shadowed pool, with its ink-dark surface that never reflects the sky. Under the surface it isn’t really dark, just dim and green. The surface glimmers overhead. Jo looks down. Silver minnows fan out from beneath her feet. Below them the green light fades into darkness. Deeper still, at the farthest edge of the light, a pale shape moves. Not a fish. Something larger. It rises toward her.< Less
