Ties That Bind (A Madison Knight Novel), by Carolyn Arnold. (Still free?)

There are three books in this series, but each one is designed be a stand-alone read. So get to know detective Madison Knight through this free highly-rated offering!

"Carolyn Arnold has done a remarkable job of creating believable characters, and the plot has all the twists and turns I enjoy in a crime story." - Franny Syufy

"I am totally ready to read the next book in the series." - Tina M. Samuels

"Ties that Bind tells a story in a methodically paced tale that you will find hard to put down, turning page after page as you wait breathlessly for the next twist." - Collette Scott 


Detective Madison Knight concluded the case of a strangled woman an isolated incident. But when another woman's body is found in a park killed by the same line of neckties, she realizes they're dealing with something more serious.
 

Despite mounting pressure from the Sergeant and Chief to close the case even if it means putting an innocent man behind bars, and a partner who is more interested in saving his marriage than stopping a potential serial killer, Madison may have to go it alone if there's not going to be another victim.

PG-RATED FUN

Lexi Anderson is an up-and-coming, Martha Stewart-type TV hostess whose two kids love the Jared Strong adventure novels, which happen to be written by their new neighbor, Kyle Miller.

For the first time in his writing career, Kyle has writer's block--until he sees the snowman on his lawn and realizes it's the perfect solution to his plot problem. He digs in and discovers two things: one, his villain's weapon will fit inside a snowman's body, and two, this particular snowman was supposed to be the backdrop for Lexi's next show.

From this improbable beginning comes friendship, but can there be a happy ending for a woman who is afraid to get close again and a man who has shadows from his childhood?


Families join together and hearts are healed as this couple goes walking in a winter wonderland.

It's a novella of about 100 pages. The paperback version will be available soon.


96 pages, with a 4.2-star rating from 154 reviews.



Invisible (Ivy Malone Mystery Series #1), by Lorena McCourtney. (Still free?)

Award-winning author Lorena McCourtney has penned dozens of novels, acclaimed by the Romance Writers of America and the American Library Association's Booklist. This book has elements of Christian fiction, adventure, and mystery.

"In Ivy Malone, readers will find a combination of wacky humor, endearing stubbornness, and unconventional sincerity. In Ivy's story, readers will slink through torn up gravesites, take a dive inside a murdered woman's closet, and watch the stars with a cute guy named Mac!" -- Kelly Standish, Amazon reviewer


She's not your average crime fighter!

Ivy Malone has a curiosity that sometimes gets her into trouble, and it's only aggravated by her discovery that she can easily escape the public eye. So when vandals romp through the local cemetery, she takes advantage of her newfound anonymity and its unforeseen advantages as she launches her own unofficial investigation.

Despite her oddball humor and unconventional snooping, Ivy soon becomes discouraged by her failure to turn up any solid clues. And after Ivy witnesses something ominous and unexplained, she can't resist putting her investigative powers to work again. Even the authorities' attempts to keep Ivy out of danger and her nosy neighbor's match-making schemes can't slow her down. But will the determination that fuels this persistent, quirky sleuth threaten her very safety?

"Invisible is a treat! Ivy Malone is a heroine with spunk and determination!"-Carol Cox, author of A Stitch in Time

322 pages, with a 4-star rating from 486 reviews.



A Fit for the Kings, by P. A. Milko. (Still free?)

The reviews are suspiciously gushing for this book. But after reviewing the sample, this modern-day nanny story seems like a good bet for a free download today!

"Amazing find from a first time author. The kind of book you want to find on the shelf in a cozy little beach house. Insightful, thought provoking, made me truly appreciate everything that I have. This novel went deep. It made me laugh and cry. Told by five distinct characters, each with their own perspective, one quickly finds there are numerous ways to see the world." - Laura, Amazon reviewer


Mary Poppins does not live here. The only magic is in the markers. It is though, a nanny's story. One not for the faint of heart.


P.A. Milko's debut novel A Fit for the Kings is a realistic fictional novel based on the relationship between the King family and their long-term nanny Kam. It's a modern day tale with the twist of modern day drama.
 
The Kings live in the outskirts of Boston. They employ a dedicated and loving [albeit sometimes jaded] nanny named Kam. She's been with them for over eight years. Due to stress, burnout, and a dire weight problem, Kam's health is in serious decline.
The children see it clearly and quietly "call it out". The parents ignore their warning.

When Kam is finally caught sleeping at work, the mom must make a difficult decision to search for a new nanny. She holds detailed interviews that all scream "FAIL!"

Kam, suspicious of sudden time off, starts investigating other employers with the help of a local area agency. The same agency "playing" / "vying for both teams."

The children in the meantime take on their own modern day battles with the monsters in their head, the bullies in the halls, and their never-ending demands of the day.

When Kam's body finally succumbs to the weight of the world and that of her own body, the Kings are forced to take over and pick up all the pieces that have just gone flying.

The poignant narrative of a modern day nanny told successively by five distinct characters; all right in their own special way, yet stuck looking in the wrong direction.

285 pages, with a 5-star rating from 7 reviews.
