A ton of trouble : a Josephine Fuller mystery by Lynne Murray — May 17th – Our heroine sleuth, Josephine, balances her time between digging up the secrets behind one of the most powerful wine families in Napa Valley and uncovering what exactly is happening behind the closed doors of a women’s clinic. When a body is found in a wine casket, her friend, Thelma, a supersized porn queen, is the leading suspect. Add to this that the head of the clinic is a gun-toting, self-righteous, faith-filled woman who dislikes Josephine intensely and the quirky characters start to get interesting. This is a fast, fun, entertaining read.

An American haunting by AfterDark Films; MediaPro Pictures; Midsummer Films; Redbus Pictures; Remstar Films; Sweetpea Entertainment — This movie is based on the true story of The Bell Witch of Tennesee. In 1818, slight, unexplained noises were heard in the Bell family's home. As the spirit grew, it increasingly persecuted the father, John, and his daughter, Betsy and began speaking to the family, although it refused to say why it was there. It pronounced a death sentence on John and within a year, he was dead. The film explains what happened on the night the spirit was born and what led to its horrific acts of torment.
