Never Smile at Strangers, by Jennifer Minar-Jaynes. (Still 0.99?)

Here's your chance to pick up this acclaimed thriller for 99 cents. Over 250 five-star reviews!

"There is something chilling about the darker side of humanity, and Minar-Jaynes does an excellent job of reminding the reader of exactly why parents tell their children not to talk to strangers. The characters' fear is honest, and their pain and confusion can be felt in the writing. Furthermore, she has tapped into what makes "mystery" novels so compelling when they're done right- the suspense in this book is incredible, and the ending was like the explosive final scene of a movie that no one can stop talking about." -- Amazon reviewer

WHEN TEENAGE GIRLS VANISH in what was once considered a safe Louisiana bayou town, the lives of four desperate young locals take unexpected turns, begging the question: Do you ever truly know those closest to you?

When nineteen-year-old Tiffany Perron vanishes from rural Grand Trespass, Louisiana, best friend HALEY LANDRY's relationship with her boyfriend becomes increasingly strained. To make matters worse, her impressionable younger sister BECKY has begun idolizing an impetuous, seductive 15-year- old who's encouraging her to do dangerous things.

Meanwhile, ERICA DUVALL, a reclusive 19-year-old aspiring writer, befriends Haley. Ten years earlier, Erica’s mother abandoned her, leaving her with the womanizing used car salesman father she loathes. She’s decided to write a novel based on Tiffany’s disappearance; a novel that she hopes will lead to a reunion with her estranged novelist mother.

RACHEL ANDERSON, a 36-year-old mother of two, is having trouble coming to terms with her husband's affair with the missing girl—a relationship that supposedly ended shortly before Tiffany’s disappearance. What’s more, she comes to the realization that someone is watching her family through the large back windows of her house.

A DISTURBED MAN also lives in the area. Ever since his mother’s murder four years earlier, he’s been raising his insolent teenage sister, ALLIE, who sleeps with truck drivers for money. He considers women to be dangerous—and his world revolves around his fear and hatred for them. He’s terrified of his sister, knowing she’s intent on pushing him over the edge.

Someone Else's Daughter: Book I (A Miranda's Rights Mystery), by Linsey Lanier. (Still 0.99?)

This Miranda Steele mystery is climbing the Amazon charts. 99 cents today!

"This was a good story, with believable characters and an engrossing plot. Miranda's reluctance to enter into a relationship was far more believable than the usual "jump into bed at the least provocation" that seems to be the norm with many romantic mysteries these days. I also appreciated her toughness, and the fact that it wasn't superficial. Miranda is credible as someone who has toughened herself up as a result of her earlier life; this toughness also makes the story line tantalizing, because you know that she has feelings for Parker, but that she is fighting them because of her fear of losing herself again in a relationship. The characters are nicely balanced, and the twist of involving one of the girls in the murders was believable, too." -- Amazon reviewer

Someone Else's Daughter (A Miranda's Rights Murder Mystery) - Book I

A love story, a mystery, and finding yourself when you thought there was nothing left to find.

"Highly charged and emotional... Read it with tissue from the very beginning." Pamela Mason.

"It was a great read, honestly couldn't put it down and can't wait to read the next one." Cathie - Sydney, Australia

"Miranda Steele is one ballsy lady who lives through hard times, has her heart broken and still has room left over for love. And she makes a great PI. I loved it! She's what I'd call 'one HOT pepper!'" Diane Kratz - crime fiction writer

  • She doesn't need a man.
  • He wants to find a killer.
  • Together, can they save a thirteen year old girl'

Thirteen years ago, Miranda Steele's abusive husband stole her baby and gave it up for adoption, then kicked Miranda out of his house.

So she remade herself. Now, the smart-talking, hot pepper-eating loner has a letter from a thirteen-year-old girl in a mansion outside Atlanta, who claims she's adopted. Could this be her long lost child' She's determined to find out. But on a dark night in a ritzy subdivision, she discovers the body of a young girl, strangled in a serial killer's ritual--and is accused of her murder.

Wade Parker, successful PI and the most eligible forty-four-year-old bachelor in Atlanta, is still mourning the death of his wife three years ago. When he visits Fulton County Jail to interview the feisty murder suspect for his client, he never expects to find oceans of feeling behind her tough exterior. He never expects to find someone driven by his own fervent passion to protect the helpless and avenge the innocent. He never expects to find love.

But is the dead girl Miranda's child?

Or is she someone else's daughter?
