Out in the Street by Graham Knight
Bob and Cammy are living “The Dream” – at least that’s what they keep telling themselves. They even have the 4 bedroom house and a 10 year old son to prove it, but when Bob’s childhood catches up with him, he and Cammy find themselves trapped between Bob’s long-divorced parents with nowhere to hide.

Saints & Martyrs by Betsy Arnett
Lydia has it all – a devoted husband, two grown children, and a successful catering business – but life isn’t turning out the way she expected. There are no grandchildren on the way, her mother keeps escaping from the assisted living facility, and her free-spirited sister is not helping.
