Murder on Haint Branch, by Eva McCall. (Still 0.99?)

Let's start today's selection with a southern mystery full of unforgettable characters. 99 cents!

"I loved your previous books, Edge of Heaven and Children of the Mountain. Can't wait to read Murder on Haint Branch." -- Dolly Parton

I loved the character of Ollie, matter-of-fact young girl on a quest for the truth in 1940's NC. The use of dialect brings the characters to life. This is a story of love, loss, and growing up. I highly recommend this one. -- Amazon reviewer

Murder on Haint Branch is an 80,000 word mystery novel set in Western North Carolina. Infidelity, moonshining, a crooked lawman, and a self-serving preacher are the building blocks for the novel. From the moment the sheriff tells Eula Sanders that her son, Charlie, has been shot, until the last few pages where we find out why Charlie died, the reader is given a glimpse into the way life really was for the Appalachian People in the early forties.

218 pages, with a 5-star rating from 3 reviews.

The Billionaire's Obsession: The Complete Collection Boxed Set (Mine For Tonight, Mine For Now, Mine Forever, Mine Completely), by J.S. Scott. (Still 0.99?)

If you enjoy torrid tycoon tales, you can't go wrong with this box set of billionaire romances. Over 140 five-star reviews, and just 99 cents today.

"The Billionaire's Obsession provided plenty of romance to melt your heart. The romance in this serial was nicely developed and written and super addictive. What I appreciated about this serial was that while there were an abundance of sex scenes, they didn't overwhelm the story or romance. The author nicely balanced out the two. The Billionaire's Obsession has quickly become one of my favorites and I highly recommend it. For each separate installments I rate them 4 stars, but as a whole this trilogy gets 5 shining stars!" -- Amazon reviewer

Heart Of The Billionaire ~ Sam and Maddie's story is now available on Amazon.

Down on her luck, nursing student and full-time waitress Kara Foster gets a massive blow to her already desperate financial situation that will surely find her living on the streets. Needing nothing less than a miracle to save her, Kara gets rescue from an unknown, unlikely and overwhelming source. Billionaire Simon Hudson makes her an offer that is impossible to refuse, but terrifying to accept from a man that she's never met. Will the handsome, alpha billionaire really be a solution to her problems, or will he end up being a major complication and a danger to her emotional sanity'

Reclusive billionaire Simon Hudson would rather be behind a computer creating computer games than rubbing elbows with the elite and he knows exactly what he wants...until he meets Kara Foster. Something about Kara touches Simon in ways he's never experienced and definitely doesn't like. For over a year, Simon watches over Kara, but stubbornly refuses to admit his desire to possess her, not even to himself. But when she ends up in a situation that could very well be her destruction, Simon steps up to help her, not realizing that in saving Kara, he might very well be salvaging his own soul.

Cat or Dog for President, by Julia Dweck. (Still 0.99?)

Let's shift gears here with a charming children's book, highly-rated after 49 reviews and on sale for 99 cents today.

"Personally, I'd buy it just for the great line "And no one would be hesitant to have two pets for President"! But the book has so much more of that kind of thing and is accompanied by beautifully rendered illustrations from the very talented Bill Bruning. I could use an old fashioned term and say it's the 'cat's whiskers', but I don't want to be accused of favouritism, so I'll just say it's really brilliant and I recommend it highly." -- Amazon reviewer

The narrator asks the intriguing question all Americans want answered: Who would win if a cat and dog ran for President of the United States' Cat and dog lovers will both agree that this is a fun rhyming tale with a political heart. Both sides of the campaign are humorously depicted in a clever way that young readers will relate to and understand. The illustrations are rich, bold and colorful. "Cat or Dog for President" will keep readers engaged and laughing from beginning to end.

Little Miss Liberty, by Chris Robertson. (Still 1.99?)

Just in time for Independence Day, this illustrated children's book is on sale today for $1.99.

"Robertson enters the children's book arena with a lighthearted tribute to the Statue of Liberty on the 120th anniversary of her inauguration on the 4th of July. Little Miss Liberty—depicted in blackline cartoon and painted with her usual patina throughout—is born on a July morning in Paris. Robertson depicts her as a toddler reaching for the cookie jar, with pacifier in mouth, mimicking the real statue's pose. The heroine rapidly outpaces her peers and eventually her parents in the size department. Cheery cartoons accompany an ambling narrative that aims to humorously explain the statue's appearance (e.g., "Her parents had a hard time finding clothes that would fit her. Finally, they gave up and wrapped her in a queen-size bed sheet"). The story also sets out to describe the statue's symbolic role. When she started school, "Little Miss Liberty was a friend to all... to those who felt different or misunderstood, lonely or sad." After outgrowing her home, she journeys around the world (lit torch in hand) and finally settles in New York harbor. Most watercolor vignettes are dominated by a single hue, allowing the green Miss Liberty to be the focal point of each scene. Many of the comic nuances and symbolism may be missed by those not familiar with the statue or U.S. history. But more sophisticated readers will likely appreciate this whimsical account of how the statue came to America. Ages 4-up." -- Publishers Weekly

To begin with, her coloring is a little on the green side. Not to mention that she grows a few inches every day. Smart, independent, and a friend to all, when Little Miss Liberty outgrows her classmates, her clothes, her house even her city, she sets out to travel the world. And in the end she finds just the right spot to call her own. Author-artist Chris Robertson has created a humorous yet uplifting story about one of the world's most symbolic monuments. An enjoyable romp and a perfect read-aloud it will entertain even the squirmiest listener and yet in its own way remind us why Lady Liberty is both unique and important.
