Charles Todd - A Fine Summer's Day

In A Fine Summer’s Day, it's June, 1914, and Ian Rutledge pays little notice to the assassination of an archduke in Sarajevo. An Inspector at Scotland Yard, he is planning to propose to the woman whom he deeply loves, despite intimations from friends and family that she may not be the wisest choice.

To the north on this warm and gentle day, another man in love—a Scottish Highlander—shows his own dear girl the house he will build for her in September. While back in England, a son awaits the undertaker in the wake of his widowed mother’s death. This death will set off a series of murders across England, seemingly unconnected, that Rutledge will race to solve in the weeks before the fateful declaration in August that will forever transform his world.

Charles Todd is the New York Times bestselling author of A Question of Honor, Hunting Shadows and An Unwilling Accomplice.

Left Coast Writers®: Joan Steidinger - Sisterhood in Sports

Sisterhood in Sports tells the stories of all kinds of female athletes in a variety of sports. Their natural tendency to use talking as a primary form of communication is essential to their experiences and successes in sports. Women and girls tend to have BFFs, collaborate during periods of stress, express empathy for one another, worry about themselves and others, and desire to have fun in sports, which makes their experiences of sports and competition different from their male counterparts. Female strengths are grounded in both mind and body, and they take these strengths onto the court, field, and track.

Joan Steidinger, Ph.D., is a Certified Consultant through the Association of Applied Sports Psychology and on the United States Olympic Committee’s Sport Psychology Registry. She has written columns online for PsychologyToday.com and SFGate.com. She has worked as a sports psychologist for close to 30 years with offices in Mill Valley and San Francisco. In the 1990s, she was a competitive ultrarunner and competitive Ride and Tie participant.

Paula Treick DeBoard - The Fragile World

In The Fragile World, Curtis Kaufman picks up the midnight phone call with his wife, Kathleen, by his side and his daughter, Olivia, listening in the shadows. The police are telling him his son—his genius, bright, talented son, Daniel–has died in a “freak accident.” Suddenly, the Kaufman’s happy, loving family will never be the same. Daniel’s unexpected death affects Curtis, Olivia, and Kathleen in different ways. In the aftermath of that tragic phone call, Curtis grows more and more secluded, pushing his wife away until she cannot bear the isolation any longer and leaves her family to start a new life in her hometown.

Curtis has one thing on his mind: revenge against Robert Saenz, man who killed his son. He can’t function at the school where he teaches, which Olivia attends, because his mind is increasingly tormented with vengeful thoughts. His anger reaches a boiling point when the man who killed his son is let out of prison. Though he tries to bury his feelings about this news, things come to a head as he stands, paralyzed with grief, on the roof of the school, and everyone, including his daughter, thinks he will jump. Instead, he finds himself inspired to take justice into his own hands, and the road trip to murder Saenz begins.

Paula Treick DeBoard is the author of The Mourning Hours. She received a B.A. in English from Dordt College.

Gigi Pandian - The Accidental Alchemist

In The Accidental Alchemist, Zoe Faust, born in 1676 and perpetually 28-years-old, can transform homegrown herbs and veggies into vegan soups and smoothies to die for—an interest that makes her fresh start in Portland, Oregon seem the perfect plan. That is, until she unpacks a crate with a stowaway—the living gargoyle and gourmet French chef Dorian Robert-Houdin—and finds her hope of a fresh start squashed.

Dorian’s appearance is no accident. He needs her help to decipher an ancient text that brought him to life—or he will return to stone forever. An already impossible task is further complicated by the intrusion of fourteen-year-old hoodlum Brixton and the surprise visit of Detective Max Liu. Toss in a dead body on her doorstep and the theft of Dorian’s book, and Zoe’s first day in Portland is already a recipe for disaster. Now the only way to remedy the increasingly dire situation depends on Zoe’s ability to recall the alchemy of her past.

Gigi Pandian is the USA Today bestselling author of the Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt mystery series. A cancer diagnosis in her 30s taught her two important life lessons: healing foods can taste amazing, and life’s too short to waste a single moment. Therefore, she writes her mysteries while drinking delectable green smoothies and eating decadent home-cooked meals.
