The first was DANGER IN THE SHADOWS by Dee Henderson. This is the prequel to the O’MALLEY series, which I love.
The second is a book by one of my critique partners. It’s a story set in a mining town in Montana in the 1870s. It is a lovely romance, and handles in an excellent way a brother’s guilt over his sister’s death when he was a young boy. I highly recommend this book, which can be seen here.
