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.

It should have been a simple job. All archaeology student Jane Barnaby had to do was pick up a box her professor needed and deliver it to him at his dig site, along with his new car. Yes, his office was in Oxfordshire, and his dig site was in Spain, a trip of 1,400 miles across three countries and two bodies of water. Still, it should have been simple. And it was, until Jane discovered she picked up the wrong box by mistake. Not the one with boring pottery samples, but instead the one with priceless ancient Egyptian artifacts. The one that a team of international art thieves is after. Now she’s chasing – and being chased by – the thieves. And she’s picked up a pair of passengers who claim they can help her outwit them, get her professor’s pottery back and return the artifacts to their rightful owner. If only she could figure out which one of them is working with the thieves and which one she can trust in this high-stakes game of finders keepers.
