“Half Moon Bay” by Jonathan and Jesse Kellerman is about Deputy Coroner Clay Edison who discovers secrets that may have been buried 50 years ago. It seems he has his hands full with a new baby, and working the graveyard shift, to have time to mind anyone’s business but his own.
While the local park is getting demolished, workers discover a decades-old child size skeleton. Whose is it? As Edison digs deeper into his investigation, he receives a phone call from a local businessman who thinks it may be his sister who disappeared 50 years ago.
According to the businessman, it’s complicated. Edison is realizing things are becoming stranger the more he searches for answers. In his town, the past doesn’t stay buried and at times, it can be a little dangerous.

Let’s take a closer look at “The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires” by Grady Hendrix. This is not your typical book title and most people may just pass it by without giving it a second look.
However, this story is about Patricia Campbell, a Charleston woman who looks forward to her weekly true crime book club. Her husband is a workaholic, she has teenagers who live in their own little world, and a to-do list that never ends.
Joining the Literary Guild of Mt. Pleasant is the only thing that keeps her sane. Until one evening after the book club meeting, she was attacked by an elderly neighbor. She just pounced out of nowhere!
That’s when she met her neighbor’s handsome nephew, James Harris. Now this is a man of her dreams! (Well, maybe.) He is well-read, well-traveled, and makes Patricia feel things she’s not felt in a long time. He attempts to charm himself into her life and tries to take everything away from her, including her beloved book club.
She will not give up without a fight when things go wrong in her neighborhood. Check out this book and read along as Patricia Campbell hunts down a monster before it’s too late.
