All I Have in this World


All I Have in this World by Michael Parker

Friday, April 3, 2015 at Carefree Catering

The latest novel by the author of The Watery Part of the World (2011) follows two wandering souls who seek to reconcile heartbreak and failure. Marcus is on the road to Mexico, after losing his family’s long-held North Carolina farmhouse in foreclosure. He is also leaving behind his latest botched enterprise, an educational center dedicated to the Venus flytrap. Meanwhile, Maria leaves Oregon for her hometown of Pinto Canyon and settles in with her distant mother. Maria remains tormented over the suicide of her high-school boyfriend 10 years earlier, and her return to the small West Texas town has been far from welcomed. Marcus’ and Maria’s paths unexpectedly cross on a used-car lot, where both are so taken by a 1984 Buick Electra that the two strangers hurriedly enter an agreement to co-own the vehicle. As their friendship grows, Marcus and Maria begin to confront their pasts and how their actions affected those closest to them.

Highly offended and fuming, Miss Julia leaves Connie Clayborn’s house determined never to return. Having been invited to what purported to be a nice get-together at the Clayborn’s starkly modern house in Abbotsville’s only gated community, Julia and the other ladies decide that after Connie’s stinging critique of the town, especially of the park on Main Street, she has simply ruined herself socially. There will be no garden club, book club, or dinner invitations for her. Unhappily, that is true, and Julia finds herself a suspect in what happens to Connie. Mayhem ensues until Miss Julia lays down the law.

Baltimore trouble follows Frankie to the beach in the person of Rosie, a doll with a history as long as her fabulous gams. Does she need Frankie’s help in escaping an abusive mobster boyfriend or is she using him for her own scheme? Is a U.S. Senator a lecherous abuser of power or the victim of a plot to undermine his reputation and his political future? Myrtle Beach becomes the scene of a series of murders and intrigue, and once again Frankie’s future is on the line. First in the series, Murder in Myrtle Beach, was a finalist for the Shamus Award from the Private Eye Writers of America.


Lowcountry Boneyard

Lowcountry Boneyard by Susan Boyer

Following on the heels of USA Today Bestseller Lowcountry Boil (an Agatha Award winner for Best First Novel) and Lowcountry Bombshell, Boyer’s protagonist is on the case. When a father hires PI Liz Talbot to find his heiress daughter, Liz suspects the most difficult part will be convincing the overbearing patriarch she left town. Behind the garden walls South of Broad, family secrets pop up like weeds in the azaleas and the closer she gets to what has become of the girl, the closer Liz dances to her own grave.
