BLEEDING HEARTS

 

51ERwfWOq-L

 

Orphaned at an early age, now twenty-four-year-old Camryn Lucks is ready to commit to find that special someone, and so accepts a date from a charming, gallant, handsome stranger. The last thing she imagines after accepting that first date with Carson would actually be the beginning of her worst nightmare.

Red roses, a reminder of her parents’ killer, soon become an emblem of horror for Cami as one by one, those closest to her fall victim to a serial killer. Cami becomes an obsession for Carson, the man she had finally allowed herself to love. Not only is he vying for her heart, but also her life.

Finding herself in a whirlwind of torments shadowed by the blood-colored bloom, Cami finds solace in Isaac, a neighboring police officer. She’s desperate to escape the haunting memories, but she must revisit them in order to catch her would-be killer. Living life in constant fear has driven Cami to second-guess every choice she makes. Will the police catch the illusive murderer, or will Cami be forced to face him once again?

Murder in the Tremiti Isles

 

51yNepn-N0L

 

A wealthy tourist from Bologna has been killed in the Tremiti Isles and the reporter Rosario Santacroce, a nice, talkative and charismatic Salento journalist, writes about the murder in the beautiful contest of Tremiti Islands (Puglia, South Italy). During the reading you can hear the sea, see the sun, smell good food, imagine sex meetings.
In this novel you can find suspense, love of good food, love of life with a smile on your face. Because even tragedies and difficulties are best approached with good humor. A sort of ode to life is what Rosario Saru Santacroce offers his readers. The protagonist of this thriller is a forty year old Salento reporter who lives in Bologna and works for a local newspaper. A rough and rational man, talkative, charismatic, ready to savor every moment of life as if it was the last. Nicknamed Saru (the nickname that is given in Salento to those named like him), he covers the city’s crime beat. As often happens, occasionally work also follows him on holidays because a real reporter is destined (almost) never to unplug. And that is probably why he gets entangled in the murder of a wealthy tourist from Bologna who like him is on vacation in the Tremiti Islands.
Saru had met the victim the day before during a boat trip and the two had hit it off. The first to rush to the scene of the crime was none other than Saru and for that reason he ends up among the suspects. Journalists of all the national newspapers arrive on the island but Saru always manages to get a bit more news than the others thanks to his friendship with the marshal of the local station who hails from the same part of Italy as him.
The story is peppered with amusing expressions in the Salento dialect related to the food, tastes and customs of that part of Italy surrounded by two seas and contains the right mix of eroticism and suspense. The author reveals the often humorous interplay between fellow-journalists, refers to real news stories and packs the investigation with twists right up to the surprise ending.

Cesario Picca (1972) born and bred in Salento (South Italy) thanks to his parents Francesco and Antonia, lives and works in Bologna as a crime and judicial reporter.
He has already published (2005) the juridical essay ‘Ungagged – the developing concept of freedom of the press‘.
His love for thrillers blossomed with ‘Murder in the Tremiti Isles‘ in which the main character is a reporter from Salento, Rosario Saru Santacroce, who will soon be involved in many other intrigues and adventures with the same likeable verve and curiosity.
For example, now you can find Saru Santacroce in the new thriller Gioco mortale – delitto nel mondo della trasgressione. And the third adventure is arriving. The only English version of my thrillers is Murder in the Tremiti Isles, the translation of Tremiti di paura.
In 2002 Picca was awarded the Piero Passetti prize for “chronicler of the year”. He has been a speaker or moderator at numerous conferences and has participated in many radio and television broadcasts.

Ready for adventure in the snowy Colorado mountains, Cecelia Gage is thrilled to be employed as the live-in housekeeper for her favorite bestselling author.

Neither does she expect to become involved in Andrews family drama and a relationship with Simon Lindley, Mark’s oh so good-looking best friend. And certainly, Cecelia has no idea she’ll be mixed up in a murder investigation because of this job.

Will Cecelia’s faith in God get her through all the trouble that lies ahead?
