no other way - Back to Me by Kelly Miles

"This is not the genre that I would normally read. It looked like a romance novel. I took it on a recommendation. I’m so glad I did.The story is told from the perspectives of Heather and Billy. It tells the story of a broken man who has to track down his lost love. But it’s not quite that simple. There are many shadowy elements to the story that will keep you on your toes right to the end. As a story in itself it is superbly done. It has elements of cat and mouse, loss, love, action, and mystery." - Goodreads, Phil Price

The Lingering Grace (The Looking Glass #2) by Jessica Arnold

A quick note from the author:
In The Lingering Grace, Alice is glad to find her life returning to normal after a near-death experience. When a young girl drowns in a freak accident similar to the one that nearly killed her, she suspects that something deeper might be going on. This incredible cover is a reference both to the drowning girl at the heart of the story, and to Alice—who is also in over her head. It’s hard to tell whether the girl under water is sinking deeper or rising to the surface. This story centers on Alice making that very choice.
