It’s never too soon to take your next breath. Behind tinted windows a few yards from mourning family and friends, Jessica and Jude Day witness their parents’ funeral - and their own. Stripped of the only life they’ve ever known, the Days say goodbye to San Francisco forever.Six months and two new identities later, the 30-year-old misfits with elite self-defense skills and penchants for alcohol, sex, and trouble arrive like an earthquake to Peaceful Woods, a retirement community in Omaha, Nebraska, that thrives on rules and gossip.Welcome home, Jackson and Jillian Knight.Jackson celebrates his new beginning by embracing his job and wiping his cavalier past clean with a temporary oath of celibacy. But Jillian’s past is branded into her soul - the deaths, the insanity, Dr. Luke Jones, and the need to make her lovers bleed. Her chance for redemption comes in the form of a next-door neighbor, one senior master sergeant Monaghan. He’s sexy, dangerously alluring, and riddled with emotional issues from years of service. He’s also so damn grumpy.Their mission is simple: let go, start over, don't kill anyone, and pray that nobody resurrects their past."This book is phenomenal! My favorite read of 2015.

“It concerns real life, relatively ordinary activities, drawn with the precision of a Norman Rockwell painting.” (The Omaha Reader)Set in the Dust Bowl of the American West, this true account of a child coming of age on a 1920s Nebraska farm recaptures an era. Young Lucille Marker experiences survival during the Depression, one of the worst dust storms in history, and finally the disintegration of the close-knit community in which she grows up. Readers who like the books of Laura Ingalls Wilder or Willa Cather will enjoy Farm Girl. It takes place on the Marker farm, located near Red Cloud, the locale of Willa Cather’s Nebraska novels. Farm Girl takes one back to a time and place that no longer exists in American culture. "Farm Girl presents a vision of life on a Nebraska homestead during the 1920s and 1930s, told from a child's perspective, and illustrated with photographs of the time." (Quincy Herald Whig)"Farm Girl will capture the interest of readers in the photos the book contains and witty recollections Lucille has of her grandparents in Catherton Township."
