But when she discovers a frightened teenage girl hiding in the forest, everything changes. Raine offers to help the girl, but gunshots ring out, and the girl runs away, never to be seen again. A week later, Raine finds a letter pinned to her cabin door—God doesn’t want you here. Leave the Haven now, before he runs you down.

The Cat Who Saved Books: A Novel

by Sosuke Natsukawa


AN INDIE NEXT PICK!

From the #1 bestselling author in Japan comes a celebration of books, cats, and the people who love them, infused with the heartwarming spirit of The Guest Cat and The Travelling Cat Chronicles.

Bookish high school student Rintaro Natsuki is about to close the secondhand bookstore he inherited from his beloved bookworm grandfather. Then, a talking cat appears with an unusual request. The feline asks for—or rather, demands—the teenager’s help in saving books with him. The world is full of lonely books left unread and unloved, and the cat and Rintaro must liberate them from their neglectful owners. 

Their mission sends this odd couple on an amazing journey, where they enter different mazes to set books free. Through their travels, the cat and Rintaro meet a man who leaves his books to perish on a bookshelf, an unwitting book torturer who cuts the pages of books into snippets to help people speed read, and a publishing drone who only wants to create bestsellers. Their adventures culminate in one final, unforgettable challenge—the last maze that awaits leads Rintaro down a realm only the bravest dare enter . . . 

An enthralling tale of books, first love, fantasy, and an unusual friendship with a talking cat, The Cat Who Saved Books is a story for those for whom books are so much more than words on paper. 

Translated from the Japanese by Louise Heal Kawai.

"Cats, books, young love, and adventure: catnip for a variety of readers!" –Kirkus

Rogue Wave: A Small Town Beach Romance (Haven Island Series)

by Isabel Jolie


Sometimes, out of nowhere, comes the rogue wave…

You can ride it, or get pulled under.

 

I roamed the untamed ocean.

Set out to play the conservationist hero.

 

Those high seas? They remain lawless for countless reasons.

Over ten years, I saw the worst that humanity has to offer.

And accomplished… nothing.

 

The futility of it all left me disillusioned. Numb.

I returned to the island of my childhood summers.

All I wanted was to lick my wounds. Hide. Regroup.

 

Like a rogue wave, an idealistic beauty thrust herself into my world.

Tells me we can make a difference.

We can save the oceans.

We’re one with the sea.

 

Her naivety might be charming if it wasn’t like looking in a time-warped mirror.

Her natural beauty might be appealing if she wasn’t a college student.

 

The last thing she needs is a summer romance with a burned-out wreck like me.

 

She’s too young. She’s got everything in front of her.

 

And me? I’ve got commitments. And a past.

 

She promises release.

No need for guilt.

I aim for the crest, for a smooth, fun ride.

But when my past comes calling, will we both get pulled under?

 

The first standalone novel in the Haven Island series, Rogue Wave is a love story about two idealistic souls finding their way in a less than perfect world.

A delicious age-gap romance featuring two marine biologists with a desire to save the oceans, an unexpected adoption, and a resort island with a small-town atmosphere. The standalone contemporary romance novel is the first in the Haven Island series, an island where people come to shelter, right off the coast of North Carolina.
