The Chalk Man by CJ Tudor

Summary by Blogging for Books:
In 1986, Eddie and his friends are just kids on the verge of adolescence. They spend their days biking around their sleepy English village and looking for any taste of excitement they can get. The chalk men are their secret code: little chalk stick figures they leave for one another as messages only they can understand. But then a mysterious chalk man leads them right to a dismembered body, and nothing is ever the same.
     In 2016, Eddie is fully grown, and thinks he's put his past behind him. But then he gets a letter in the mail, containing a single chalk stick figure. When it turns out that his friends got the same message, they think it could be a prank . . . until one of them turns up dead.
     That's when Eddie realizes that saving himself means finally figuring out what really happened all those years ago.
Expertly alternating between flashbacks and the present day, The Chalk Man is the very best kind of suspense novel, one where every character is wonderfully fleshed out and compelling, where every mystery has a satisfying payoff, and where the twists will shock even the savviest reader.

Dreams by the Fire (Sinful Holiday Series #2) by Crimson Syn

Summary by Goodreads:
Holly Snow has captivated me mind, body, and soul.
My obsession with her began ten years ago,
But she was too young back then, too innocent.
I forced myself to stay away, but now she’s appeared back in my life
And my craving to possess her has only grown stronger.
I’ve made it my life’s mission to never let her go again,
And I vow to own every part of her even if she’s doing everything she can to avoid me.
I will make her mine and I will make her see,
That I’m the only man who can make all her dreams come true.

Staying at my grandparent’s cabin was going to be temporary.
It was the perfect spot to finish writing my new novel in peace.
I’ve always been a loner, I’ve never been good with people,
But meeting Logan Garland has completely changed my priorities.
The deep timbre of this gorgeous handyman’s voice makes my insides purr.
The hungry look in his eyes both scares me and lights me up in every way possible.
He’s got me so obsessed, I can’t think straight,
And being near this stranger may just send me over the edge.
If I’m not careful, I may let him have all of me.
