Sometimes you need to get away to find the place your heart calls home. Jolene Carter lives in Merrylark Lake, a quaint town where neighbors are like family and vacationers become fast friends. With her dream of opening a downtown storefront on hold, Jolene volunteers wherever she can, whether it be at Cat's Coffee Cart or the town's annual tree lighting. It is while she's tending to her neighbor's vacation rental that Jolene meets Luke, a cowboy with a mustang rescue and a past he's hoping to leave back at the ranch. Luke Handley isn't one to believe in holiday magic. That disappeared when his winter wedding was called off and his honeymoon was canceled. But the more time he spends in Merrylark, the more he's convinced this magic exists. When Luke's ex unexpectedly shows up as the other half to the lake house reservation, things get complicated. Luke knows all the magic in the world won't clear up this misunderstanding. If he's learned anything from Jolene, though, it's that helping others is the most effective way to show love. With a surprise up his sleeve and a little help from his new Merrylark friends, Luke hopes he's able to do just that.

When Philo Drax receives a letter from her wealthy grandfather saying he fears for his life at the hands of the vicious Slape family, she rushes to the rescue. But too late! Katie Slape, a monstrous girl with psychic powers and a penchant for smashing skulls with her hammer, has already finished him off and gotten hold of his cash. Determined to track down the murderers, Philo hunts Katie and her family through the streets of 1860s New York, where the Slapes coffers are filling up with money as their cellar fills up with corpses. But going after the Slapes might be the worst decision of Philos life, for no one escapes the bashing of Katies hammer! A bloody, action-packed romp, Katie (1982) is a throwback to the exciting and violent penny dreadfuls of the Victorian era and features the same brilliant writing as Michael McDowells classic horror novels The Elementals and Blackwater. A great read - evocative of another era, engrossing from the first page, chilling. (Publishers Weekly) McDowell must now be regarded as the finest writer of paperback originals in America. (Stephen King) Michael McDowell has a flair for the gruesome...the nurturing of utmost horror. (Washington Post) You need a strong stomach...filled with gore and horror. At the same time, he writes so well that you cant stop reading his books. (Ocala Star-Banner)
