Bargain books, plus one more freebie! (Sep 13)

Good afternoon! Here are your bargain Kindle books for today!

Mary Poppins (Odyssey Classics), by P. L. Travers.

Sale price: $1.99; normally $6.99. (Still on sale? Check here!)

Some of you might have missed this: it's today's Kindle Daily Deal for kids. Homes with children should have a copy of classics like these on their Kindles!

Meet the *real* Mary Poppins! On sale for a few more hours only!

"Grownups who have forgotten Mary Poppins's true charms will be tickled pink to rediscover this uniquely unsentimental fantasy. Younger readers will walk into Mary's world without batting an eye--of course the animals in the zoo exchange places with people on the night of the full moon. Certainly a falling star landing on a cow's horn will make her dance ceaselessly. Why wouldn't one be able to enter into a chalk picture? The only disappointing aspect of this classic is that it doesn't go on forever!" -- Emilie Coulter


For all her offended sniffs and humphs, Mary Poppins is likely the most exciting nanny England--and the world--has ever seen.

Young Jane and Michael Banks have no idea what's in store for them when Mary Poppins blows in on the east wind one autumn evening. Soon, though, the children are having tea on the ceiling, flying around the world in a minute (visiting polar bears and hyacinth macaws on the way), and secretly watching as their unusual nanny pastes gold paper stars to the sky.

Mary's stern and haughty exterior belies the delightful nonsense she harbors; her charges, as well as her literary fans, respect and adore her.

And Only to Deceive (Lady Emily Mysteries, Book 1), by Tasha Alexander.

Sale price: $1.99; normally $9.99. (Still on sale? Check here!)

Most of the books in the Lady Emily series are $9.99, but you can pick up this opening novel to the series at a discount today.

"This engaging, witty mix of Victorian cozy and suspense thriller draws its dramatic spark from the endearingly headstrong heroine's growth in life and love. A memorable debut." -- American Library Association


From gifted new writer Tasha Alexander comes a stunning novel of historical suspense set in Victorian England, meticulously researched and with a twisty plot that involves stolen antiquities, betrayal, and murder.
 

When Emily's dashing husband died on safari soon after their wedding, she felt little grief. After all, she barely knew him.

Now, nearly two years later, she discovers that Philip was a far different man from the one she had married so cavalierly. His journals reveal him to have been a gentleman scholar and antiquities collector who, to her surprise, was deeply in love with his wife. Emily becomes fascinated with this new image of her dead husband and she immerses herself in all things ancient and begins to study Greek.

Emily's intellectual pursuits and her desire to learn more about Philip take her to the quiet corridors of the British Museum, one of her husband's favorite places. There, amid priceless ancient statues, she uncovers a dark, dangerous secret involving stolen artifacts from the Greco-Roman galleries.

And to complicate matters, she's juggling two very prominent and wealthy suitors, one of whose intentions may go beyond the marrying kind. As she sets out to solve the crime, her search leads to more surprises about Philip and causes her to question the role in Victorian society to which she, as a woman, is relegated.



321 pages, with a 4.1-star rating from 112 reviews, and 80% off today!



Irretrievably Broken (Sasha McCandless Legal Thriller No. 3), by Melissa F. Miller.

Sale price: Free; normally $4.99. (Still on sale? Check here!)

Here's a free book, and it's part of the popular Sasha McCandless legal thriller series!

"The ingredients of the 'Sasha novels' have, by book 3, become essential staples that, I am sure, all her loyal readers have come to expect: a tight plot combining action and legal exposition; snappy but still realistic dialogue, and brilliantly flawed characters." -- Whiskey Andati Book Review


Attorney Sasha McCandless is back in Irretrievably Broken!

The venerable law firm of Prescott & Talbott is reeling from the murder of partner Ellen Mortenson -- purportedly at the hands of her estranged husband -- when a photograph of the dead woman arrives, her face Xed out and "ONE DOWN" scrawled across the bottom. Within days, a second partner is murdered, her husband also accused.

Sasha doesn't practice criminal defense, so she's suspicious when her former firm asks her to represent Ellen's husband. Owing Prescott a favor, she takes the case and soon finds herself representing not one, but both, of the so-called Lady Lawyer Killers. The long hours jeopardize her relationship with Leo Connelly when he needs her most.

That's the least of Sasha's troubles, though, because what she doesn't know is that the real killer is waging a vendetta for a past case gone wrong. And there's one more lawyer on his list.
