Bargain Kindle books! (Thursday Jun 27)

Here is today's selection of bargain Kindle books!

House of Mirrors, by Lisa M. Logan. (Still 2.99?)

In this highly-rated paranormal thriller, Eleanor discovers that the antique mirrors she's bought have a ghostly presence contained within them.

"I love suspense and the paranormal, so I really enjoyed this novel! Logan has a great way with words, describing scenes with key, specific details that paint a picture and often hint at deeper layers of meaning. For example, a bright yellow tarp protecting an auto accident from the rain belies the seriousness of the accident and hints at Eleanor's (the main character's) troubled past. The tatooed serial number on the inside of one jovial character's arm reveals an awful truth about the Holocaust. Logan is also great with dialogue -- I especially liked the mother-in-law character, Miriam, a chain smoker with snappy comebacks!" -- Amazon reviewer

HOUSE OF MIRRORS is a paranormal thriller about a woman who buys antique mirrors from an eccentric antique dealer; only to discover she has brought entities into the house attached to the mirrors. The uninvited guests cause a bit of a stir for the distraught woman who is mourning the loss of her little girl to a recent drowning. Her husband hires a psychiatrist and family friend to exorcise Eleanor’s personal demons, but Dr. Kelso discovers that the mysterious mirrors hold more secrets—a few that he isn’t comfortable having aired.
“House of Mirrors” taps into the universal hope and desire we all have of contacting loved ones who have died, but sometimes it’s better to leave the dead at rest.

McCreed's Law (The Montana Series), by L. J. Martin. (Still 0.99?)

"To catch an outlaw, hire an outlaw." From L.J. Martin's "Montana" series, one man has the skill, motivation and courage to track down the mad dog outlaws who hit the train and disappeared with its passengers and a shipment of gold. 99 cents today!

"Wow! This book is the difference between a 1960's western TV show and a modern western movie. The Author holds nothing back as he creates the movie in your mind. What struck me was how he captures the political incorrectness of that time. From killing an Indian, to shooting horses, and the way women were treated back then. That's when it hits you... this really was once a very wild west and it was kill or be killed! Eating was more for staying alive than it was for enjoyment (like it is today). I highly recommend this graphic adventure and if you are a western fan you will be hooked on L.J. Martin's Montana series." -- Amazon reviewer

To catch an outlaw, hire an outlaw...then get the hell out of the way! Gone, a shipment of gold from the Transcontinental.

With a score to settle and a woman from his past at risk, McCreed plans to lay down his own brand of the law...and it matters little who dies in the process. Another L. J. Martin action adventure western full of fists, gun smoke, and blood.

Here's a Kindle book available for free today!

The Assassin's List (The Adam Drake series), by Scott Matthews. (Still free?)

Free today, this first book in the Adam Drake series thrills to the bone with counter-terrorism action.

"This book is superb! A thriller that really does thrill, with a plot that races head-long into the crisis with a protagonist that is believable and admirable. He finds himself pulled into a conspiracy investigation he resents being in and yet finds invigorating and redemptive. Both the bad guys and the good guys in this great read are well-drawn characters (certainly as well-drawn as any popular thriller and more than most) and they draw us in the same way protagonist Adam Drake is drawn in." -- Amazon reviewer

THE ASSASSIN'S LIST is book one in the Adam Drake series - a headline-current thriller about homegrown jihadist assassins and a timid, PC correct government. An assassination of the Secretary of Homeland Security is planned at a decommissioning ceremony at an Army Chemical Depot. Adam Drake, an attorney with Special Forces experience, uncovers the plot while investigating the murder of a client's secretary. When the FBI won't act on his suspicions, Drake takes on a well-funded terrorist sleeper cell, posing as an international security service, to head off a string of assassinations on a long list of America's VIP's. THE ASSASSIN'S LIST is a fast-paced counterterrorism thriller that will satisfy your craving for action and make you think about terrorists living among us.

Lord Esterleigh's Daughter (The Serpent's Tooth), by Kathy Fischer-Brown. (Still 4.99?)

This full-length romance set in 18th-Century England is the first in the Serpent series.

"A spunky heroine! This book is a well-researched, well-written tale of English society in the latter half of the 18th century. It's the story of Anne Fairfield, raised in poverty but finding later that her father is a wealthy man. But he is also one with a convuluted and less than honorable past. Here we meet members of English society, both upper and lower classes, good and bad. How Anne reacts to these people shows us a heroine willing to fight for what she wants, unwilling to suffer fools gladly. Ms. Fischer-Brown's historical novels are a deviation from those we so often see in bookstores,that are all froth and no meat. Her characterizations and descriptions are superb." -- Amazon reviewer

As a child, Anne Fairfield dreams of the father she never knew, the hero who died fighting the French and their Indian allies in a land across the sea. Her mother’s stories, and fantasies of her own devising, sustain and nurture her through a poor and lonely existence. Until one winter night, a strange man comes to call, and the life she has known comes crashing down like shattered glass.

Forced to confront sordid truths, secrets and lies, the headstrong young woman begins to learn that, like generations of Darvey women ruled by their hearts, she is destined to follow in their footsteps.

Set against the backdrop of 18th century England, Lord Esterleigh’s Daughter is the first book in “The Serpent’s Tooth” trilogy, which follows Anne from the rural countryside, to London society and into the center of the American Revolution.
