Dr. Abigail Westward just wants to go home and forget all about the two years she spent in Afghanistan. If it were just the medical situations, she'd be fine.

Like all physicians, she'd vowed never to bring harm to another human being...

Gwen Parker has baby fever. With a little coaxing–and a miracle–she might be able to convince her best friend to help her get her son and ex-daughter-in-law back together again. But something odd is happening in Bandit Creek today. Is it an April Fool’s Day joke or could it be the miracle Gwen so desperately wants?

WHERE RABBITS RUN WILD by Trip Williams
In the mountains surrounding Bandit Creek, not everything is made of gold. The rustling of leaves and crunching of snow beneath the tall trees may leave you with a smile as you search for a cute and cuddly creature of the forest. But in these hills, you do not want to reach into the dark recesses. Not everything is as friendly as it may first appear and for the weary, a real Fool’s Gold may be your only and last, surprise.
Fool for Love by Louise Behiel
Has all the makings to be the beginning of a great suspense novella, after reading this I felt like the story cut at the most interesting part and wanted to know what Lina was going to do, was her husband to be feared or loved. I want to read more!
The beginning had a cool thriller wibe to it, alone in the snowy woods, working with small crew of men who knew something was out there in the woods. But turned out to something more amusing. Great writing from Williams, this story was an interesting apetiser to hunt down something else he's written.
