 Coming from Jude Pittman and Gail Roughton in Fall 2018

The Shipton history is--well--complicated. Some families have a guardian angel.

The Shiptons have a guardian ancestor, one who jumps right in, boots first, whenever one of her girls has a problem. Of course, Mother Shipton's girls aren't always limited by blood ties. They're connected by power, shared and used wisely. 

That power needs to get busy, too, or Katherine's oilman fiancé is going to disappear for good in the Gulf of Mexico, Katherine's best friend Sylvia is never going to reconnect with her childhood soul mate, and cousin Irene's wedding plans to world champion saddle bronc rider Matt Dillon (yep, that's his real name) will end up down the drain.

It's a good thing Mother has family troubleshooter Lillian to help her in this century.  These girls get themselves into more trouble than a time-jumping family guardian can handle all by herself



Street Justice by Jude Pittman and John Wisdomkeeper


Finding a murdered First Nation's girl in Vancouver's Stanley Park, in the middle of tourist season, was the last thing homicide detective Mark Hanson needed, but that's what he's got. Mark turned for help to the local Friendship Centre, where Metis police liaison Dez Pallaton suggested they ask for help from Spirit Water, a well-known Shaman who held the respect and confidence of the First Nations community.

In an attempt to keep the murder from triggering a race war, Dez convinced Mark to give him time to try and find the killer before revealing evidence that pointed suspicion at the Native community. Although the homicide detective was skeptical, he agreed with Dez that they needed to find this killer before more bodies started turning up in the City. With the help of his co-worker Martine LaChance, Dez set out to uncover the secrets hidden in the murdered girls' past. Both he and Martine believe the killer is a serial; a madman who is leaving clues that point a false trail to a Native as the killer. With the help of Spirit Water, and the aid of forces in both the spirit world and the mundane, they are determined to find the killer before more innocent girls die at his hands.
