"If you like your romance with suspense - and some thoughtfulness - and you also enjoy learning about a country and culture not your own, this is a great choice. While it all ends well, there are many twists and turns, and an interesting perspective on present day Ireland, written by an author who should know. Enjoy, and then get the next one." -- Shirley Norwood, Amazon reviewer
348 pages, with a 4.2-star rating from 67 reviews.
Heart for a Hero, by Ed Ditto and Laura D. Patrick. (Still free?)
A quilt arrives in the mail, and sparks a mystery in this "uniquely American story." Eight 5-star reviews, and free today!
"The author somehow manages to stitch together totally disparate themes into a congruous, heartfelt and uniquely American story. There are sparse hints of a writing style crafted by the southern luminaries that made their mark in the literary world long before. The characters are evocative and real and she eloquently captures the trials and tribulations of heroes and everyday, humble, family life. An excellent read. -- Christopher E. Jylkka
5-star rating from 8 reviews.
Her Handyman, by Morgan Mandel. (Still free?)
Short and sweet, this romantic novella is a free download today!
"This is a refreshingly sweet and charming story about two people whose initial introduction would never have happened except for an overflowing toilet. Eccentric, talented and successful artist, Zoe calls handyman Jake. No job is too big or too small for handsome, regular guy, Jake, he's happy to comply. I was immediately rooting for them, yet appreciating how hard it was for them to accept their growing feelings for each other. After all, Jake had a fiancé and Zoe had all sorts of troubles, family secrets and phobias.
Yes, in the end, guy gets girl, but you will love the journey of these two unlikely lovers." -- RP Dahlke, Amazon reviewer

Sword of the Raven, by Diana Duncan. (Still free?)
Time for a guilty pleasure read? Here's a fantasy romance with over 30 five-star reviews. And it's free today!
"I read Diana Duncan's Sword of the Raven and absolutely fell in love with Rowan, the Water Mage hero. His tale of sorrow and tragedy, coupled with the absolute die-hard sexiness of the character had me on the verge of emotion many times. His quest and the things he's willing to do achieve them are both heart-pounding and nail-biting.
Delaney Morgan has a secret even SHE doesn't know and it made me cheer for her all the more. I loved watching her push and fight and claw for what she believed in.
But when they collided, it made for some tense and breath-holding moments.
Ms. Duncan grabs your attention by the throat from the opening page and does not let up until the unbelievable end. The book is full of twist, turns, surprises and shocks that made my mouth drop. I loved reading about the Scottish lore and felt it was very well explained." -- Amazon reviewer
324 pages, with a 4.5-star rating from 51 reviews.

"Eisenstein chooses words that evoke the wide span of emotions that run through a sixth grader's mind. She keeps readers in suspense on every page." -- Joan Y. Edwards, Author, Illustrator, Motivational Speaker

"Chester Campbell has created a unique blend of sleuthing with the Greg McKenzie series. In this installment, McKenzie has opened an investigative firm with his wife Jill. While investigating the disappearance of funds from a popular restaurant chain, they agree to take on a case for Molly Saint, who asks for a background check on her husband Damon. When Molly mysteriously disappears, Greg and Jill try to track her whereabouts, which leads to entanglement with contract killers tied to the murder of the Chairman of the Federal Reserve.
The McKenzie duo is a fresh addition to the mystery genre. An older couple, Greg and Jill complement each other personally and professionally and make for good reading. Campbell writes in an engaging style, delivering a mystery that twists and turns throughout the book. A compelling read. " -- Christy T. French, Amazon reviewer

Cat's Paw, by L. A. Taylor. (Still free?)
Here's a historical mystery, with fantasy elements. A finalist in the Indie Excellence awards, download this free today!
"While on a trip completing secret investigative work for the Governor, Miranda's husband disappears. She decides to find him herself, since the local police force does not seem to care; a stray polydactyl cat accompanies her on her journey. Set in an unnamed civilization with the technological advancements of about the year 1910, the story reveals that the practice of magic has been outlawed but is still practiced by a few. The fast pace, good characterization, and hint of the outcome keep readers rapidly turning the pages. A great choice for a quick read or an introduction to fantasy." -- School Library Journal
"When Miranda's husband, the lightkeeper of the beacon at Gwynnhead, fails to return from a secret mission for the government, she sets out on a seemingly hopeless quest to find him. Taylor sets this low-key fantasy in a world where magic is officially denied despite hints of its continued existence. The presence of a protagonist who possesses no special skills except for her common sense and uncommon determination provides a refreshing departure from standard fantasy heroes. A good choice for most libraries." -- Library Journal
200 pages, with a 4.2-star rating from 26 reviews.
