From reviews of The Soul Fixer:

The entire story was gripping all the way to a shocking ending that left me absolutely speechless…

I read the book all in one go in an evening – quite literally couldn’t put it down.

I expected a good read as I’d really enjoyed Mouse by the same author. This book was just as great or better.

Yet another page turner. Brilliant story and had me guessing right to the end.

This author wrote the most excellent, original, supernatural, psychological/thriller I have read in a long time

Susan and Paul Carmichael’s world is devastated when a small-time burglar and drug addict, Eddie Hull, brutally murders their only child, young student Becky Carmichael.

Consumed by grief, they both struggle to come to terms with their tremendous loss. Their fragile relationship under mounting pressure, Susan begins to have dreams about her daughter. She is convinced these are not ordinary dreams; Becky is calling out to her for help. But this revelation only serves to drive a further wedge between the grieving couple.

In desperation, Susan trawls a number of so-called psychics, but is bitterly disappointed by charlatans and fraudsters. When she finally starts to accept that the dreams are a natural part of the grieving process, she meets the mysterious Silas Blake.

He tells her things no one else knows about Becky. Tells her that Becky’s soul is trapped and cannot move on, and that there is an island in the Hebrides called Connalough Point where they will be able to help her. Paul is naturally sceptical, but agrees to go to the island for the sake of their marriage.

They discover Connalough Point is a very secretive place, and every precaution is taken to ensure no one outside learns about its existence. Here they meet Helen Blake, Silas’s wife, and the dour MacLeod brothers.

They also meet the soul fixer…

But slowly they discover the shocking secrets of Connalough Point, the real reasons they are there. With events spiralling down into deceit, terror and murder, it quickly becomes not only a battle for survival, but the steep path to a devastating truth…

And Then You Fall (Crested Butte Cowboys Series Book 1) by Heather A Buchman

Set in scenic Colorado, And Then You Fall is about two people who believe themselves undeserving of happiness in love and life, who grow to understand that taking the chance at both is worth it.

Fate put her in his path and he has no intention of ever letting her go.

Liv gave up her dream of being a competitive barrel racer when she was nineteen to follow her great love, Air Force Captain Scott Fairchild, wherever his life took them. When Scott’s F15 is shot down months later, right before the birth of their daughter, Liv’s world is shattered. She returns to her parents’ isolated ranch in Colorado, and raises her daughter as a single parent. Now that Renie is grown and away at college, Liv is bored and cranky. She finds herself spending too much time on social media feeds, cyber-stalking the hot guitar player she met at a concert over the summer.
Ben Rice recognized her as soon as he saw her sitting at the bar. Liv, that was her name, and fate kept putting her in front of him. The first time he saw her, after his band CB Rice opened at Red Rocks, he couldn’t keep his eyes off her. For the next two hours he watched her. She loved music—and she felt it. Not everyone did. She danced, she laughed, she smiled, she lived. That was why he remembered her name when he introduced himself at the end of the show. “I’m Liv,” she’d said. And he was ready to. He’d endured too many struggles in the last few years. He’d worked hard to keep the band going, and he wasn’t going to give up. With a new record about to be released, this was their year—he could feel it.

Used to getting what he wants, Ben pursues the reluctant Liv, who’s busy following her own dreams. When a devastating accident changes the course of her life, Ben is forced to choose between his band’s long-fought meteoric rise to international fame, and the woman he believes is the love of his life.

It’ll take fate’s intervention once again to bring her back to him, where Ben is convinced she belongs. But Liv is faced with the same dilemma she’s always struggled with. Which is it, love or the dreams she’s never allowed herself to put first, that she won’t let go of?
