The Haunting of Springett Hall by E.B. Wheeler
Prize Format: eBook
Eighteen-year-old Lucy doesn’t remember how she died or why she’s haunting Springett Hall in Victorian England. One thing is certain: she was trying to fix a terrible mistake—one she must set right before oblivion reclaims her. As she pieces together the mystery of her death, shadows try to drag her into a dark abyss, and she struggles against the commands of a disembodied voice.
None of the living notice Lucy haunting them, except a servant named Philip whose memories are as fragmented as hers. They find evidence they were involved in a necromancer’s scheme to cheat death: a spell that went awry. Lucy also suspects Philip, for whom she’s developing an impossible attraction, may have been one of her enemies.
The more Lucy learns, the less she wants to remember. The necromancer’s work isn’t finished, though, and his influence is consuming the minds and wills of everyone in the house, living and dead. To have any chance of making a happy ending out of their mistakes, Lucy and Philip must face the truth about their past and free the residents of Springett Hall from a curse that reaches beyond death.

The Stranger’s Obituary by Jessica L. Randall
Prize Format: eBook
Welcome to Auburn, where fresh baked cookies hold the key to your future, and a melody carries the secrets of your past.
Mina Fairchild keeps to herself, and that’s the way she likes it. Her secluded life protects the secrets she hides, as well as a certain peculiarity that even people in the colorful town of Auburn, Nebraska find strange.
But when her movie-star sister Bernadette shows up on her sofa, Mina’s cozy bungalow is overrun with paparazzi. One dark eyed reporter seems to see straight into Mina’s soul and her world begins to crumble. It’s bad enough when he noses around her secrets, but then he starts digging for information about her mother, and Mina can’t let that happen.
Bernadette fled her Hollywood life after her boyfriend’s affair caused her to do things that sent the tabloids flying off the racks. Now she’s facing the sister she hasn’t spoken to in eight years, and an ex-fiancé, to whom she owes more than an explanation. While she’s not sure she can tell them the truth, she’s determined to make things right, even if that means America’s Sweetheart waits tables in a small-town diner.
Trouble is, this prodigal return has unraveled more than the sisters realize. When a body is discovered, and a strange woman comes to Bernadette pleading for help, Auburn encounters a decades old mystery that causes Mina to question the very people she’s been protecting, and threatens the few people she’s close to.
