LET THE DEAD LIE
By W.L. Brooks
Series: The McKay Series #1
Genre: Romantic Suspense
A widower with four adopted daughters, Emmit McKay likes to keep a handle on things. But nothing can prepare the former FBI sharpshooter for the battles coming to his small hometown. Especially the one which arrives in such a tempting package.
Savannah Walker moves to Blue Creek to take over as principal of the school Emmit’s daughters attend. With a masters’ degree in education and a no-nonsense attitude, she is caught off guard by the behavior of the McKay girls and never expects to fall in love with them—or in lust with their father. But her intimacy with the family stirs up rumors and unearths secrets.
Savannah and Emmit cannot deny the chemistry which draws them together, but the closer they get, the more dangerous the stakes become. When a murderer is hidden amongst you, you can’t let the dead lie.

About the Author
Cassie Salazar and Luke Morrow couldn’t be more different. Beautiful and enigmatic Cassie is a struggling artist, working nights at a bar in Austin, Texas to make ends meet while pursuing her dream of becoming a singer/songwriter. Luke is an Army trainee, about to ship out for duty, who finds comfort in the mental and physical discipline of service after a difficult time in his life. But a chance encounter at Cassie’s bar will throw them together in ways that they’d never expect.
Cassie has been barely getting by financially ever since discovering that she has diabetes. Even with her basic insurance, she is drowning in medical bills. Added to her worries are concerns for her mother, who’s getting older and has no one else to look after her. So when she runs into old friend Frankie, now enlisted in the Army, she proposes a deal: a marriage license in exchange for better insurance for Cassie, and Frankie will keep the increased paycheck he’ll get now that he has a “family” to look after. Frankie says he can’t help her because he has a girlfriend, but to Cassie’s surprise, Frankie’s annoyingly intense friend Luke volunteers to marry her instead. Unbeknownst to Cassie, he desperately needs the money to pay off his old drug dealer from before he got clean.
The two of them make a pact: they’ll get married for a few months, make the money they need, and then get divorced when Luke has returned from duty and the time is right. But when a devastating injury overseas throws Luke back into Cassie’s life, they must make their marriage seem as real as possible to army personnel or risk being sent to jail for fraud. And sometimes, it’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s just pretend.

The Smart Gal’s Guide thru Divorce; What Lawyers Don’t Tell You
The journey of divorce is highly complex, and daunting. Sara A., speaker and divorce coach, wants to guide women to find courage and to think through the process better prepared and well-informed with The Smart Gal’s Guide thru Divorce; What Lawyers don’t tell you (WestBow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson and Zondervan).
“We know what you’re going through and what’s up ahead. We call it, ‘Divorce Dizziness,’” Sara A. says. “The discovery, the documents, the details and the delays. The dizziness will only last for a season. For most of us, of course, we never expected that life would bring us here. Unfortunately, sometimes, we find that divorce may come into our lives. Sometimes, life brings change.”
The Smart Gal’s Guide thru Divorce includes sixteen chapters of clear, chapter by chapter guidance on topics such as Calendaring, Lawyering, Divorce Coaching, Documenting, Organizing, Protecting, Empowering, and Moving Forward. The Tools section covers “Over 25 Key-Areas of Concern” to be sure to consider, and “The 30 Most-Costly Mistakes” to avoid.
Sara A. is the founder of Divorce Buddys, and has been divorced twice. This book is not about Sara, and it is not intended to talk people through rebuilding after divorce. “This book has never been done before,” she says. “This book is to guide you through, with ‘insider-thinking.’ We think it through with you.” Sara A. provides valuable insight into selecting the best attorney, preserving the family nest-egg, limiting financial losses, and smart ways to cut billable hours and control the costly back and forth.
Following a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from The University of Texas, Austin, Sara built a resume of business development. With a heart to encourage, in 2012 she was inspired to launch Divorce Buddys, providing key information, wisdom and insight for women walking through the complex journey of divorce. She is a certified divorce coach. In 2015, she founded G.O., Gals Only, encouraging single women in a focused discussion setting with foundational truths, faith-based inspiration, outreach and community. In all her work, Sara A. is inspired to encourage women to “Put on Courage.” She is currently available for speaking engagements, radio interviews, TV interviews and meeting with individual clients.

Lies and Love: Cleansing the Heart to Make Room for Radical Love (Higher Realm Publishing) is a deliberate approach to rid the heart of lingering issues that affect how you think, and limit your capacity to love and be loved. These heart issues or heart “chaos” as Vanessa calls it, includes feeling abandoned, angry, fearful, jealous, holding grudges, being sad, and even hating others. Vanessa says that this chaos will even lie to you, holding you hostage to your past, to keep you from walking in the fullness of who God created you to be.
“What is your heart story?” is the question Vanessa asks in Lies and Love as she shares her own victory over a chaotic heart that started with daddy issues and sexual assault as a teenager. For years, Vanessa questioned her self-worth until God got her attention with his hurricane winds of love and washed away every lie she ever believed. In thirty days, Lies and Love will help you identify your heart chaos, walk you through the cleansing process, and inspire you to receive and give love without limits. Vanessa says the key to unlock your breakthrough and healing is held up in your answer to the question: What is your heart story?
