A homeless young woman finds an unexpected family in beloved New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown's novel of healing hearts and new beginnings in a small Texas town. In the fading town of Rooster, Texas, all that's really left is a service station, a church...and the Banty House, a long-ago Depression-era brothel. For more than seventy-five years, Betsy, Connie, and Kate Carson have called their mama's house a home. The three eccentric sisters get by just fine with their homemade jams and jellies, a little moonshine on the side, and big hearts always open to strangers. Like Ginger Andrews. An abandoned teen with a baby on the way and nowhere to go, she's given a room to call her own for as long as she wants. The kind invitation is made all the sweeter when Ginger meets the sisters' young handyman, Sloan Baker. But with a past as broken as Ginger's, he's vowed never to get close to anyone again. As a season of change unfolds, Ginger and Sloan might discover a warm haven to heal in the Banty House, a place to finally belong, where hope and dreams never fade.

Leelee Satterfield seemed to have it all: a gorgeous husband, two adorable daughters, and roots in the sunny city of Memphis, Tennessee. So when her husband gets the idea to uproot the family to run a quaint Vermont inn, Leelee is devastated...and her three best friends are outraged. But she's loved Baker Satterfield since the tenth grade, how can she not indulge his dream? Plus, the glossy photos of bright autumn trees and smiling children in ski suits push her over the edge...after all, how much trouble can it really be? But Leelee discovers pretty fast that there's a truckload of things nobody tells you about Vermont until you live there: such as mud season, vampire flies, and the danger of ice sheets careening off roofs. Not to mention when her beloved Yorkie decides to pick New Year's Eve to go to doggie heaven-she encounters one more New England oddity: frozen ground means you can't bury your dead in the winter. And that Yankee idiosyncrasy just won't do. The inn they've bought also has its host of problems: an odor that no amount of potpourri can erase, tacky décor, and a staff of peculiar Vermonters whose personalities are as unique as the hippopotamus collection gracing the fireplace mantle. The whole operation is managed by Helga, a stern German woman who takes special delight in bullying Leelee for her southern gentility. Needless to say, it doesn't take long for Leelee to start wondering when to drag out the moving boxes again. But when an unexpected hardship takes Leelee by surprise, she finds herself left alone with an inn to run, a mortgage to pay, and two daughters to raise. But this Southern belle won't be run out of town so easily. Drawing on the Southern grit and inner strength she didn't know she had, Leelee decides to turn around the Inn, her attitude and her life. In doing so, she makes friends with her neighbors, finds a little romance, and realizes there's a lot more in common with Vermont than she first thought. In this moving and comedic debut, Lisa Patton paints a hilarious portrait of life in Vermont as seen through the eyes of a southern belle readers won't soon forget. A charming fish-out-of-water tale of one woman who learns to stand up for herself-in sandals and snow boots-against the odds.

Around a month has passed since the fall of humanity, and the dead continue to roam the earth. The government, along with civilization, has utterly collapsed and the only remnants of mankind left are the sounds of winds echoing off the tall buildings and litter being gently tossed across the streets of the depressingly vacant cities. What little there still is of humanity constantly dims as it falls prey to soulless decaying figures hungering for flesh. Cars scattered along the roads never to reach their destination, halfway constructed buildings never to be finished or inhabited. A world frozen in time with no more electricity, no computers, no jobs, no schools, no police or military, and, most of all, no hope. Hope, as it seems, will forever be a thing of the past. Especially for a young man wandering the streets of Kansas. After the brutally painful loss of his dearest friend, Ruby Valentine, Michael Evland returns home after being exiled from the safety of a strong community of survivors. Michael has trudged through endless amounts of zombies to arrive at the last safe haven he knows--a bunker he built before the outbreak. There, much to his surprise, Michael finds a strange man named Eli. A zombie apocalypse is strange enough but is nothing in comparison to what Michael is faced with next. With Ruby dead, Michael has no one, and when asked by Eli to join him on a journey to do the unthinkable, recklessness overtakes him. Watch as Michael Evland, a man shattered into pieces by complete devastation and loss, slowly become acquainted with Eli as they set out to unravel the secrets of this zombie apocalypse. See how this daring mission gives our battered protagonist the strength to put himself back together piece by piece. Eli and Michael will begin to realize that the walking corpses tearing apart the earth weren't as accidental as one would think. The two new friends will soon be faced with something incomprehensible gunning for them. Will the two of them be enough to conquer a force strong enough to bring on Armageddon? Maybe they won't have to be. Maybe evil isn't the only thing searching for Michael and Eli. Maybe all is not lost. In this story of both suffering and healing, love and loss, friendship and betrayal, holds the elements for something bigger than zombies, stronger than man, and worse than death. This is more than just a zombie apocalypse, more than just the end of the world, and more than your average doomsday scenario. Michael must act fast because the clock is ticking, evil is rising, and things are elevating in The Human Apocalypse: Elevated Armageddon.
