Today is the perfect day to die. Bernard is the type of man that accomplishes all that he sets out to—and easily. He's intelligent, hardworking, and completely unfamiliar with failure. His only complaint—the singular source of the inner anger bubbling within him—is that no one else in the world recognizes that. It's time to force them to. Bernard's had enough. Enough of the complete absence of respect in his life, of being looked down upon, of being the only person in the world—it seems—who truly sees the reality of his life and what he deserves acknowledgment for. In fact, that recognition is way overdue. And that makes Bernard's blood boil. Today is just like any other day; Bernard has planned and prepared for every aspect. His heated rage stews just under the surface, just more fuel for the fire. He will accomplish this one goal as he has all others. Another success, his ultimate success. And he'll have made his blissful escape. The final statement will be Bernard's. At last. The perfection of the execution of this one, final achievement will be undeniable. Bernard will be free of this ridiculous world—passing calmly from his lifetime of frustration—and the world will realize its significant loss. They won't be able to take away—or look away from—what he's about to do. If he succeeds. But of course, he will. Why wouldn't he? He always has. He's dead set on killing himself, as many times as it takes.
An in-law-averse bartender finds a heroic purpose for her skill at hallucinating while listening to neo-psych rock during her sessions alone in complete darkness in Addie's Float, which is an isolation tank that brings comfort to the Indiana town. When the comfort turns to scandal, the mysteries and threats tear down a young surveyor named Austin, who sees three strangely narrow men turning up in the oddest places. The small town is falling apart due to local corruption. Can indie music save it? Beware that it could trigger people who are sensitive about questionable touch from anonymous strangers: the woman floating in the tank suddenly realizes someone is in there with her, petting her hair. When the man runs away naked into the night, Flair risks covering for him. Steamy sexy with some "language." The sexuality is loving and mystical yet the beginning contact is edgy. Dual 3rd Person POV set up like a Romantic Suspense, though it's also Psychological Suspense -- rather than the usual Navy SEAL or bodyguard who strongly protects the woman, this male lead is worried about losing his mind. The main characters are 24 and 25 and they're interested in finishing college and internship. I hope it interests New Adults but it's more complex than most and delves into ideas like Carl Jung's collective unconscious/telepathy.

A portrait holds the key to recovering a cache of looted artwork, secreted away during World War II, in this captivating historical art thriller set in the 1940s and present-day Amsterdam. When a Dutch art dealer hides the stock from his gallery - rather than turn it over to his Nazi blackmailer - he pays with his life, leaving a treasure trove of modern masterpieces buried somewhere in Amsterdam, presumably lost forever. That is, until American art history student Zelda Richardson sticks her nose in. After studying for a year in the Netherlands, Zelda scores an internship at the prestigious Amsterdam Museum, where she works on an exhibition of paintings and sculptures once stolen by the Nazis, lying unclaimed in Dutch museum depots almost seventy years later. When two women claim the same portrait of a young girl entitled Irises, Zelda is tasked with investigating the painting's history and soon finds evidence that one of the two women must be lying about her past. Before she can figure out which one it is and why, Zelda learns about the Dutch art dealer's concealed collection. And that Irises is the key to finding it all. Her discoveries make her a target of someone willing to steal - and even kill - to find the missing paintings. As the list of suspects grows, Zelda realizes she has to track down the lost collection and unmask a killer if she wants to survive.
