One of those rare books, the kind the reader doesn't want to end. –Green Bay Press Gazette The first in Fern Michaels' bestselling Texas series, Texas Rich introduces us to passionately compelling Billie Ames. . . Young Billie Ames was naive but a real knockout when she met Moss Coleman at the Philadelphia Navy Yard during World War II. Within a few months she was pregnant and married to him. It was a marriage that brought Billie--and her mother, Agnes--across the country to Austin, to a 250,000-acre spread called Sunbridge, and into the world of the Texas rich. Billie works to acclimate to Texas and her new home at Sunbridge, her role as Moss' wife, and the challenges she faces from her social-climbing mother, her gruff and demanding father-in-law, and the events of the world around her. We see Billie grow stronger in heart, mind, and belief as her children are born, her marriage to Moss changes, and she comes into her own as a Coleman--and a woman in her own right. "A big, rich book in every way. . ..I think Fern Michaels has struck oil with this one." –Patricia Matthews "A steaming, sprawling saga. . .As always, Fern Michaels writes a full story with bigger-than-life characters we would look forward to meeting." –Romantic Times "Fine fare for Fern Michaels's fans!" –The Philadelphia Inquirer 302,000 Words

Mysterious, chilling, and told a breakneck pace, The Scamp will thrill readers of Daniel Woodrell’s Winter’s Bone and Roxane Gay’s An Untamed State. Rayelle Reed can’t escape in her small town, where everyone knows everything and not enough: All the guys she slept with, but not the ones she loved. The baby she had out of wedlock with the pastor’s son, and how the baby died, but not the grief and guilt that consume her. At a motel bar, Rayelle meets Couper Gale, a freelance detective on a mission to investigate a rash of missing girls, and she tags along as an excuse to cross the state line. But when Couper’s investigation leads them to the mystery surrounding Rayelle’s runaway cousin Khaki, she finds she is heading straight back into everything she was hoping to leave behind. As fates become entwined, Rayelle must follow a haunted and twisted path—leading her toward a collision where loyalties will be betrayed, memories uncovered, and family bonds shattered. Unflinchingly dark and compelling, THE SCAMP confronts head-on the issues of family origins and the bonds between mothers, daughters, and sisters. It delves deep into the cycle of abuse and poverty, questioning, in the end, the value of any one life, child or adult. In Pashley’s hands, the lost girls of rural and industrial America, trapped in the unforgiving systems of government assistance and single parenthood, are portrayed with depth and nuance. She exposes the ingrained poverty and atmosphere of disillusionment that damns them before they have a chance and she gives them a ray of hope for a better life ahead.

George Dent's reputation was in tatters, and his suicide surprises nobody--except one. Dent's childhood friend Peter Timms is certain the MP's downfall was a set-up; why else was he being stalked in the weeks before his death? Timms can even name the culprit--the only problem is, he's been dead for seventy years. But broke PI Kenny Gabriel can't afford to be cynical. He agrees to round up Dent's old school gang, although some of them are less than keen to be found. Meanwhile, Meg Dylan, matriarch of a North London crime family, is hot on Kenny's heels with another case. As pressure mounts on both sides, Kenny knows he must find the truth behind this ghost--or become one himself.
