"Jersey Girl Book Reviews-top series of 2012 for Pam of Babylon! A Critic's Pick on "An intriguing first novel that revolves around a husband's death and hidden secrets. Women's fiction with a touch of noir."" --

For Long Islander Pam Smith, keeping house and staying
beautiful dominate her daily routine as she awaits the return
of her husband, Jack, every Friday evening. When he suffers a fatal heart
attack on the train home from Manhattan, Pam's exquisitely arranged
life is catapulted into turmoil as she is forced to face the realization that
her marriage is nothing more than a black hole plagued with cruel infidelity,
abuse, and sexual deviance. Witness Pam as she graciously and
gracefully accepts the foul world her husband's "other life" forces on

around a husband's death and hidden secrets...consistently interesting,
this psychological novel contains some mystery and moves
along quickly for a non-thriller." Of Don't You Forget About Me, "An exciting,
surprising story that leaves the reader hungry for the next book."
And of Dream Lover, the third in the series, "A gritty, realistic portrait of
the aftermath of deceit."
"Excellent!" Dan Georgakas, Editor, Cineaste Magazine

Lord Esterleigh's Daughter (The Serpent's Tooth), by Kathy Fischer-Brown. (Still 3.99?)

This historical romance is set in 18th century England, where a young woman learns hidden truths about her father - a man who reclaims her after years of neglect.

"Our heroine, Anne has been brought up to believe that her father is dead-dying a heroic death in war. When her mother is on her deathbed, however, she discovers that not only is her father alive but lives close enough he has been able to keep up with the family. He wants to make amends and bring the whole family back together, but it's too late for Anne's mother. And, Anne has a hard time forgiving her father for his apparent disregard of them for years. Anne's suspicions and anger at her father lead her into many complications and issues -reminiscent, at times, of the gothic novels I grew up on. Who can Anne trust? Who should she avoid? The author does a wonderful job of showing all these complications clearly, with apt description, and I could easily see this series as a movie-maybe one day I will. So, if you are a fan of dark gothic themes, enjoy seeing the underbelly of British society and what goes on behind the scenes, as it were, I highly recommend you buy this trilogy." -- 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.

Disappear, by Iain Edward Henn. (Still 0.99?)

This bestselling crime mystery is 99 cents today!

"As other reviewers say, Henn juggles a lot of characters. To me, showing how the events involved and affected a wide range of people made the plot a bit more real-life, which was important when the premise had me wondering if Henn had gone off the paranormal deep end. Happily, he brought it all home at the end. If you like "Disappear," grab "The Delta Chain" too. I enjoyed that even more." -- Amazon reviewer
