GRAY is Young Adult novel about friendship, family, and survival in a flooded and ravaged Earth. (And hint: it’s not a zombie novel)
From the book jacket:
The Storm struck five years ago as a monstrous waterfall pounding the world. Entire cities vanished underwater, lakes grew and merged into oceans. Glaciers shrank and mountains melted.
Grays, vicious creatures that were once human, know only hunger. They hunt Scout and her group of friends mercilessly. Even more terrifying is that Scout and everyone else still alive knows that their own transformation is inevitable.
When Scout’s change begins, she realizes that hers is different, and that the burden of humanity’s survival is now on her shoulders. To save herself and everyone she loves, she must find a cure. If she dies, our world dies with her.

Murder in Devil’s Cove
Every book tells two stories—one written on the pages with pen and ink, and one woven into the paper, a story of the soul. The Lane women have the gift of bibliomancy. They can read both.
But Cassie Lane doesn’t see this as a gift. For her, it is a curse because the book magic comes with a price–the Lane women die young and the men are lost to the sea. As soon as she’s able, she leaves Laurel Point, Oregon, running from her past and her fate, ending up on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. There she meets Leo Hawthorne and lives a perfect life with him in an old Sea Captain’s house.
Perfect, that is, until an old book foretells the future, and the curse that has plagued the Lane women comes true for Cassie.
Twenty years later, Cassie and Leo’s children, twins Pippin and Grey, are back in Devil’s Cove. Long forgotten secrets surface and an old crime comes to light. Now Pippin must learn how to be a bibliomancer if she is to discover the truth about her father and continue his effort to stop the curse.
“A magical blend of books, mystery, and smart sleuthing, Melissa Bourbon’s Murder in Devil’s Cove offers mystery readers everything they crave and stands out in the crowded cozy genre. This captivating new series will leave readers spellbound.”
