Fetching Raymond: A Story from the Ford County Collection, by John Grisham. (Still 0.99?)

Let's start today's selection with a shortie from John Grisham!

"Repelled yet fascinated! I've come to expect great writing from John Grisham, and he did not disappoint with the short story, "Fetching Raymond." The story is told from a point of view that is rarely considered. The Graney family dynamics are similar to those played out by many American families; but they are vastly different. The description, "dysfunctional" barely scrapes the surface when describing this clan. Reading about the family's actions and reactions to each other makes a great story. While reading, I found I was repelled yet fascinated by the characters, and I just wanted to keep turning the pages to find out what happened next." -- Amazon reviewer

A riveting story of suspense from John Grisham’s #1 New York Times bestseller, Ford County—now available as a standalone eBook short

Wheelchair-bound Inez Graney and her two older sons, Leon and Butch, take a bizarre road trip through the Mississippi Delta to visit the youngest Graney brother, Raymond, who’s been locked away on death row for eleven years . . . and it could well be their last visit. Going back to Ford County, Mississippi, the setting of his first novel, A Time to Kill, Grisham brings the Graneys and their world to vivid and colorful life, making it abundantly clear why he is our most popular storyteller.

Includes an excerpt from John Grisham’s classic thriller, A Time to Kill

The Advocate (The Advocate Series), by Teresa Burrell. (Still 0.99?)

"Need a break from stories about ivory tower law firms and want to get down and dirty in the streets? My wife is a legal thriller junkie and told me it was the best novel she read in years. I do not usually read her type of books but told her I would see how I liked it. Well I did not like it, I loved it and finished the book in three days. The story tugs on your heart while you are on the edge of your seat, stange combination, but it works and works well." -- Amazon reviewer

Leap of Faith: Quit Your Job and Live on a Boat, by Ed Robinson. (Still 0.99?)

"Ed it the nail on the head so hard in chapter 7, "Dept Free Equals Freedom" and chapter 8, "Save, Save, Save". I recommended everyone in the USA to buy this book and read it if for nothing else, these two chapters. If you follow Ed's brilliant advice, your life will be forever changed and all for the better. The book clearly lays out how ANYONE can get out of dept and live with forever freedom. This was a great read and think it is awesome that this couple changed their lives so positively by doing just some simple adjustments in how they live their life." -- Amazon reviewer

They gave up everything and now they have it all

Follow them as they leave the working world behind and become carefree boat bums and beachcombers. Read how one couple got rid of all their belongings, quit their jobs, and moved onto a boat. This is a story of finding happiness in paradise through simplicity of life. It’s tales from tropical adventures. It’s a simple plan for financial freedom. It’s social commentary on the state of today’s society, sprinkled throughout with lyrics from the songs that inspired them.
