Tag - A Technothriller (The Zumar Chronicles), by Simon Royle. (Still free?)
This mystery/thriller has 34 four-and five-star reviews,and is free today! The story follows arbitrator Jonah as he's thrown into a race to stop a horrific plot designed to eliminate two-thirds of the world's population.
"5 Stars for this compelling read! In his first novel, Simon Royle has managed to create a riveting thriller. In line with the human tendency to shorten words of common objects (think net for internet, phone for telephone, TV for television), some of the important terms of this century include, amongst other terms, dev (device), trav (travel), and cred (credit- monetary units earned by "contributions"). Although common travel has extended to the moon and the world is now united, at least in theory, the people and the experiences are recognizable and definitely feasible. This fictional reality is extremely realistic, and the implications of such a future really demand to be considered." -- MotherLode Blog

The Ultimate Game (ECHO'S REVENGE), by Sean Austin. (Still free?)
A SciFi book suitable for all ages, this fast-paced read takes virtual reality to a new level.
"For those of us who can't help but think too much, there are also elements of ECHO'S REVENGE in there for us. How much information is too much information when it comes to what we share online. And the fun question is What happens when who we are is used against us?
Keeping the pages turning from beginning to end, Sean Austin's ECHO'S REVENGE scores big for action lovers and avid readers." -- C. A. Webb, Amazon reviewer

Feels Like the First Time: A True Love Story, by Shawn Inmon. (Still $0.99?)

And not many books have a 4.9-star rating after 73 reviews. This sweet story of young, true love has just that, and is bargain priced for just a few days at 99 cents. Don't let this one get away; download it today!
"Shawn Inmon opens his heart in this true love story reaching out to his one and only soul mate, Dawn Adele, through various life obstacles. "Feels Like the First Time" is written, largely, in the 1980's so one living through that era can totally relate to the times and identify with the Vega and music set in the beautiful Northwest. As my eyes captured each written word I rode the rollercoaster of the emotional highs and lows as the story unfolded. Shawn's descriptions bring the story to life as you follow him from a young man in high school to middle-age." -- Bonnie Christian, Amazon reviewer
218 pages, with a 4.9-star rating from 73 reviews.
Death of the Couch Potato's Wife: Cozy Christian Mysteries (Women Sleuth, Female Detective Suspense), by Christy Barritt. (Still free?)
Boring, Indiana is anything but... especially when murder, suspense, and romance emerge. Join street-smart housewife Laura Berry as she pokes around, and ends up being a target herself. Free today!
"I will read anything with Christy Barritt's name on the cover. I know I'm in for fun, suspense and romance and never more than I found in Death of the Couch Potato’s Wife. This book is Barritt at her best." -- Bestselling author Mary Connealy
"Boring, IN, caught my attention. Not your average murder village. Sound a bit funny. It is. It's also well done as the main plot (1 of many) is an apparent murder by pork rinds. Throughout the story, a multitude of locals become suspect, and discovering the quirky characteristics of the cast is quite fun. Having Boring, Indiana folk murdered sure adds spice to Midwest dull-drums." -- Harold Wolfe, Amazon Top 50 Reviewer
296 pages, with a 4-star rating from 45 reviews.
Blood and Groom (Sasha Jackson Mysteries), by Jill Edmondson. (Still free?)
Rock-band singer turned private eye - come on, it could happen! - is a likeable leading lady in this engaging mystery series! if you're a mystery-reader, download your copy today.
""Fast-paced and fun!" Sasha is a PI who doesn't listen to those who tell her "no." She thinks on her feet and can improvise when needed. Her tenacity leads her into the world of art, insider trading, drugs, high-finance, and high-society. Sasha also has a second, quite interesting job, but if you want to find out what that job is, you'll have to read the book." - Helen Ginger, Amazon reviewer
"Having already read and greatly enjoyed the middle of the three (so far!) books of the Sasha Jackson Mysteries series, I had a pretty good idea what Blood and Groom would be like: a fast-paced and fun story with some twists and a winning protagonist. Sasha Jackson is a fun and realistic protagonist who makes some mistakes along the way but ultimately prevails. Her observations and inner dialogue are frequently laugh-out-loud funny, and she is surrounded by a supporting -- and supportive -- cast including family and friends." -- Scott Whitmore, Amazon reviewer" -- Enter reviewer name (optional)

“Mike Duran has the darkly rich imagination of a true storyteller.” – Scott Nicholson, finalist for the Bram Stoker Award and author of The Red Church
"I've read all three of Mike Duran's novels, and this anthology holds up well along with his longer works. Most of the stories in Subterranea are similar in tone. Dark, supernatural, walking the line between literary and commercial. Duran has a gift for description and knows how to set the mood of a story.

25 Delicious and Nutritious Vegetarian Soup, Stew and Chili Recipes (The Ultimate Guide to Vegetarian Cooking), by Shelley Lynne. (Still free?)
Perhaps my passion for good soup is going overboard in our book recommendations! Bear with me, though. These soups can be made in about the time it takes to press "one-click."
Note: no pictures, though... although I find that is less of a hindrance with soup books compared to other cooking books.
"Honestly it was like Shelley wrote the book for me! I've made a lot of soups, stews and chili and can spot a good recipe. This book is filled with them and I can't wait until the weekend to cook a pot of Spicy Vegetarian Chili!" -- Sandy Bose
"Buy this book even if you're not a vegetarian. The recipes are awesome! While I'm not a vegetarian I love all of the recipes in this book. They are easy to follow and easy to make." -- Marg Ruttan, International Best-Selling Cookbook Author
