Feels Like the First Time: A True Love Story, by Shawn Inmon. (Still 2.99?)

Save $2, this week only! Shawn Inmon's wonderful, romantic coming-of-age memoir has over 200 five-star reviews.

"Wonderful true love story! The story is touching, engaging, and well written. The characters draw you in - you really care about and root for them, and I couldn't wait to see how things turned out. The best part, though, is the fact that it's true. It gives you hope for love and life. If their fairy tale came true who knows what can happen.... I highly recommend this book if you enjoy romances, reliving a teen-hood set in the 70's, or just want a wonderful, uplifting story. I look forward to seeing where this author goes in the future!" -- Amazon reviewer

Jazz Funeral (Skip Langdon #3) (Skip Langdon Mystery) (The Skip Langdon Series), by Julie Smith. (Still 0.99?)

This mystery in the Skip Langdon series is from Edgar-award-winning novelist Julie Smith. 99 cents!

"On the eve of the New Orleans Jazz Fest, series heroine Detective Skip Langdon discovers the dead body of one of its staunchest supporters, the part-owner of a restaurant chain and the lover of a fast-rising black blues singer. To make matters worse, the victim's teenage half-sister, who may hold the key to the case, has disappeared. A super protagonist, well-defined characters, and musical highlights make this essential." -- Library Journal

The third book in the Skip Langdon mystery series by Edgar Award-winning author Julie Smith.

A genuinely moving mystery ... It's always a pleasure to spend time with Skip, a no-nonsense, level-headed heroine in a wild and reckless city." –The Baltimore Sun

Everybody loved easygoing Ham Brocato, producer of the famed New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. So how did he end up stabbed to death in his kitchen on the eve of the fest'

New Orleans Homicide Detective Skip Langdon acquires a ready-made suspect list from the victim's live-in lover, feisty and swiftly rising star Ti-Belle Thiebaud, and sets out to solve the murder. To complicate the case, the victim's sixteen-year-old blues musician sister has disappeared, and Skip suspects that if the young woman isn't the murderer, she's in mortal danger from the person who is.

Skip doesn't miss much as she probes the victim's tangled relationships, including Ariel Bruge, Ham's assistant, apparently a woman scorned; his father George, enmeshed with family members in a bitter disagreement over the family's lucrative Po' Boy chain; and Patty, the distraught stepmother.

With her long-distance love, Steve Steinman, and her gay landlord, Jimmy Dee, to assist her, Skip trails an elusive killer through a sweltering early summer in the steamy Big Easy, a lively blend of big city and gossipy small town, in a tale of southern kinships gone awry.

"A super protagonist, well-defined characters, and musical highlights make this essential." -Library Journal
