The Accidental Guest by Tilly Tennant. Published by Lawsome

Hannah Meadows is in the middle of cleaning out an old cottage when there’s a knock at the door. Who could be out there in the middle of a blizzard? She opens the door to find an injured man who can’t remember anything about himself. Hannah takes him in, she can’t just leave him out in the snow can she? And Hannah, a woman who doesn’t believe in happily ever after finds herself falling for this kind and gentle man. Too bad neither one of them know who he is….. This looks to be the beginning of another of Tennant’s delightful series. Cuddle up under the covers for another trip to Milrise


Genesis by Paul Antony Jones. Published by 47North

In the fourth book of the Extinction Point series, the earth has been decimated by the aliens who have begun to colonize it. Emily Baxter’s first concern is her son Adam, but the child had eyes that are speckled with red. He is the first posthuman child born after the apocalypse. With Emily’s husband off on a scouting trip, there is no one to defend her when she’s accused of a heinous crime. The only way to prove her innocence is out there in the world that is no longer hers, or any humans. She sets off her her stepdaughter and faithful dog, to prove her innocence and reclaim her humanity. This series has been a totally different take on the popular post-apocalyptic fiction so popular. I was always terribly worried about Thor (the dog) being injured or killed.
