He has walked through the valley of death and man’s depravity. Now war photographer Mitch Coltrane is trying to escape his memories. A haunting decades-old photograph of a woman pulls him into the mystery of a beautiful starlet during Hollywood’s golden age. But past and present collide. A living woman, eerily like the woman in the photograph, comes into his life. So does a killer - straight from the war hell that Coltrane survived. Deception, double identities, and murderous revenge will shatter his new life, and force Coltrane to perform the ultimate act of courage - not with a camera, but with a gun. 1. Language: English.

From acclaimed romance author Ellyn Oaksmith comes a novel of change, challenges, and ultimately kindness.... Being overly kind isn´t in Kylie Harrow´s nature. This has never been more evident than when Kylie vents her frustrations to an innocent employee - and the whole scene is posted online, tanking her career and earning her the dubious distinction of ´´world´s worst boss´´. But when she flees home to the South, Kylie finds her childhood home has changed. The high school quarterback is now the hot and handsome sheriff. Her mother has turned her home into a nudist colony. And, worst of all, having heard about her daughter´s exploits, her mother won´t let her in the door until Kylie completes 50 kind acts in 50 days. The task seems easy enough at first - and may even help repair her media image - but it quickly turns into a hilarious quest that leads Kylie down a bumpy road filled with new challenges. What started as a gimmick to save her career evolves into a mission to save a spunky old woman and her little dog from homelessness. As Kylie learns about the nature of kindness, she finds the path to happiness and, for the first time ever, maybe even love. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Wendy Rich Stetson.
