Bury Me
by Dianna Dann

Lenore Hawn lives in a cocoon, surrounded by her hoard.When her young neighbor, Hannah, agrees to help her find something lost in the piles of junk she’s crammed into every free space of her house, she thinks she might finally be able to release the guilt and shame that has tormented her all these years.

The last thing seventeen-year-old Hannah wants is to dig through mounds of stinky trash in Mrs. Hawn’s house. But for that kind of money...it’ll be worth it. And what the old lady doesn’t know can’t hurt her. After all, she’s already dying...

Two women. Two secrets. One road to redemption.

FEATURED TITLE


 

Bookish Meets Boy
A Downtown Divas Romance
by Dianna Dann

2016 Eric Hoffer Book Award
Short List

Six months after being dumped by the love of her life, Sophie Childers just wants to go back to her old life. She was happy spending her days at her grandfather’s shop, Bookish, and her nights curled up with her cats and a good book.

But once Reese Fuller stumbles into her life—or she tumbles into his—she is suddenly caught up in the social life, brunching with the Downtown Divas (the boss girls she never considered friendship material before), playing matchmaker to nerds, starting up The Great Antiques War of Historic Downtown Strawbridge and worse, desperately trying to find homes for her darling colony of stray cats before Reese chases them off with his new-store renovations.

Can a cross-genre kind of girl really let herself fall for a cat-hating thriller reader?
