If you’re getting cabin fever staying safer at home, these are just the books to lose yourself in.

And don’t forget to check out our April new releases!
When the Grim Reaper’s Head Minion has to make one of her favorite human employees named Jane complete a questionnaire that will determine where Jane goes in the afterlife, she’s not too happy about the prospect—especially because she can’t deny her attraction to Jane. So, when Jane asks Morgan to help her complete her bucket list, Morgan helps. Little does she know that one of Jane’s items is “Sleep with my boss.” After centuries of heartbreak, can Morgan risk loving another mortal?

Time has passed, women have come and gone, but Emery has never forgotten what Burke made—or maybe makes?—her feel. Torn between past and present, Emery struggles to acknowledge that she’s falling for someone new while still loving the woman she thought she’d spend a lifetime with.

Sleuth Ari Adams just wanted to take a vacation. She wanted to sip pinot noir and stare out into Oregon’s wine country with her BFF Jane. But, when they arrive at the vineyard to find the sommelier has been murdered, with more than a few people happy to see him gone, Ari is on the case. Complicating matters is Jane’s friend Mina who is waiting on Ari to solve the murder. Ari’s romantic assumptions about winemaking are shattered when she realizes fervent love for wine is just another motive for murder.
