Kindle books! 3 bargains and a freebie!

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

The Moose Jaw (The Fergus O'Neill Series), by Mike Delany.

Price: $0.99. (Still on sale?)

This outdoor adventure book comes highly recommended and rated at 4.8 stars!

"This review is coming from a woman who has only been to Alaska once, fished maybe two times, never hunted, and still LOVED this book.

"Mr. Delany's graphic descriptions placed me in the middle of this novel and kept my attention throughout the book. I sat down and read the entire novel with only a short break for dinner. I really enjoyed the adventure that I was taken on with his words and never expected the ending. What fun! I really look forward to his next novel and visiting my old friends, Gus, Haywood and Morgan again. Thanks, Mr. Delany, for a great ride through your talented writing!" -- Amazon reviewer

Strange things happen in the Alaska bush. The native Alaskans say that a white man too long alone out there will go mad. 

Gus O'Neill suspects it may have happened to him. His two best friends, Hard Case Calis the old Alaska State Trooper, and Haywood Jennings the flying veterinarian think so too. 

Gus spends a summer on Moose Jaw Creek where he builds a cabin, finds a ravaged red-haired beauty he comes to love, and murders the man who had sexually molested her. When Haywood flies in to join Gus for a moose hunt he finds his friend alone and raving. There is no evidence that Gus' redhead or the dead man he claims to have killed ever existed.

Gus is baffled by the disappearance of his woman and the body of his victim, but he agrees to join Haywood on a moose hunt. 

When Hard Case unearths an unsolved case file that dates back more than forty years, it becomes clear that Gus may not have imagined the woman or the murder after all. Strange things happen in the Alaska bush.

The Promise (Fallen Star Series Book 4), by Jessica Sorensen.

Price: $0.99. (Still on sale?)

A fantasy/romance, this is Book 4 in the Fallen Star series.

"I was blown away by this whole series. I loved it, and could not put my Kindle down until I finished the whole book. This final installment did NOT disappoint. I loved how Gemma and Alex finally figured out their feelings for each other. Loved how we actually got to see 2 endings, the visions, and what really happens. It was great. I am actually reading the series over again, can't get enough. I can't wait for the spin off book." -- Michelle Lynn, Amazon reviewer

My name is Gemma Lucas and my life's a mess. Alex is gone, my dad's trapped in his own mind, and my mom's working for the dark side. Not to mention Nicholas refuses to quit haunting me.

The world has also entered apocalyptic mode. Everyday more vampires, witches, and fey run the streets. Innocent people are dying. The Mark of Malefiscus is showing up everywhere. And I'm the only one who can stop it.

The only problem is I have to die in order to do so. And I have to let Alex die. Something I'm not sure I can do.

The Woman in White (Illustrated Edition), by Wilkie Collins.

Price: $0.99. (Still on sale?)

Take a look at this illustrated edition of the book considered by many to be the world's first mystery novel.

It's a public domain book, but this edition is well-formatted to get you through this 600+ page classic!

"The Woman in White is certainly not just a romance, but also a great mystery novel and filled with some very intriguing characters."

"The book is a real page turner and the only thing left wanting is a sequel."

"There are so many unexpected, even shocking incidents, and Collins moves between them with exactingly precise yet graceful and beautiful prose. Not only that, his narrative style, which moves from character to character, allows for fantastic comic interludes which break up the drama (the chapter from the point of view of the hypochondriac uncle is gut-bustingly funny)." - Michael B. Collins, Amazon reviewer

This Dead Dodo edition is formatted specifically for Kindle and features an exclusive Kindle-viewable image gallery containing pictures of the author.

Walter Hartright, a young art teacher, is walking from Hampstead to London. On this he meets a mysterious woman dressed in white, apparently in deep distress. He helps her on her way to London but later learns that she has escaped from an asylum. 

The next day he travels north to Limmeridge House, on a commission of being drawing master to residents of the house, previously gained by his devoted friend, an Italian language professor named Pesca. The household comprises Mr Frederick Fairlie, and Walter's students: Laura Fairlie, Mr Fairlie's niece, and Marian Halcombe, her devoted half-sister. Hartright finds that Laura bears an astonishing resemblance to the woman in white, called Anne Catherick. The mentally disadvantaged Anne had lived for a time in Cumberland as a child and was devoted to Laura's mother, who first dressed her in white.

Walter and Laura quickly fall in love. Laura, however, has promised her father that she will marry Sir Percival Glyde, and Marian advises Walter to leave Limmeridge. Anne, after sending a letter to Laura warning her against Glyde, meets Hartright who is convinced that Glyde was responsible for shutting her in the asylum. 

And so begins a tale of twists and turns, and abounding with mysterious circumstances!

685 pages, with a 4.6-star rating from 239 reviews, and $0.99 today!

Breaking TWIG, by Deborah Epperson.

Free! Normally $3.99. (Still free?)

And here's another book that's free today - highly rated and much recommended!

"Breaking Twig, a beautifully written and thought provoking novel, is absolutely one I will recommend to my book group...I was hooked." - Amazon Best Selling Author Kathy Dunnehoff.

"I'd give this book 5/5 stars. I was literally unable to put it down and finished it in about 5 hours. I strongly recommend it to anyone..." - Kayla Joy, Addiction To Words.

"The characters...made me really appreciate the book. They're real, they're interesting, they grow, and when the book was over I wanted to reach in and give them a hug for all we've been through together." - Faith

Set in rural Georgia in the 1960s, BREAKING TWIG is a coming-of-age novel about Becky (Twig) Cooper, a young woman trying to survive the physical and emotional abuse of her mother, Helen, a beautiful, calculating woman who can, with a mere look, send the meanest cur in Sugardale, Georgia running for its life.

Not even Twig's vivid imagination, keen wit, and dark sense of humor is enough to help her survive the escalating assaults of Helen and a new stepbrother, but help comes from an unexpected source--Frank, her stepfather. Sometimes, having one person who loves and believes in you is all a girl needs to keep hope alive.

Often raw and irreverent and sprinkled with all the Southern flavoring found in a good bowl of chicken and dumplings, BREAKING TWIG, is about finding love where we least expect it, destroying lives with easy lies, and realizing each of us determine our own truth.

"With a voice as rich as sorghum molasses, Epperson seductively draws the reader into the rural south of the 60s and 70s. In the southern tradition of Tennessee Williams and William Faulkner, the author explores the depths of the human heart and spirit, with wisdom, humor, and unflinching truthfulness." D. Burke, Five-star Reader Review

325 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 117 reviews, and free today!
