Tuesday's Child (Psychic Visions), by Dale Mayer. (Still free?)

"I loved the mystery, I loved all the twists Dale Meyer's threw out at the reader. When I thought I had it all figured out, something changed and I was left guessing all over again. Sam's kind of psychic talents was shocking. It made the story very intriguing and kept me reading, hoping that Sam would find some peace. This promises to be the start of a very riveting series. While Sam's story appears to be done, we will get to meet whole new characters and get swept away in another thriller." -- Amazon reviewer

What she doesn’t want...is exactly what he needs.

Shunned and ridiculed all her life for something she can’t control, Samantha Blair hides her psychic abilities and lives on the fringes of society. Against her will, however, she’s tapped into a killer—or rather, his victims. Each woman’s murder, blow-by-blow, ravages her mind until their death releases her back to her body. Sam knows she must go to the authorities, but will the rugged, no-nonsense detective in charge of tracking down the killer believe her?

Detective Brandt Sutherland only trusts hard evidence, yet Sam’s visions offer clues he needs to catch a killer. The more he learns about her incredible abilities, however, the clearer it becomes that Sam’s visions have put her in the killer’s line of fire. Now Brandt must save her from something he cannot see or understand…and risk losing his heart in the process.

As danger and desire collide, passion raises the stakes in a game Sam and Brandt don’t dare lose.

Ashes, by Kelly Cozy. (Still 0.99?)

"This book is not what you'd expect. It is a voyage of redemption of the human spirit that kept me turning the pages to see where it would go next. Kelly's character development is rich and insightful and strongly propels the story in a way that few books do. It is full of action and adventure, but it is how Kelly's characters develop because of the problems they face and how they resolve them that makes this book a fantastic must read. I'll be suggesting 'Ashes' to all of my reading friends." -- Amazon reviewer

Anonymous. That was Jennifer's life. But when she survived a domestic terrorist attack and her last-minute escape became the iconic image of the event, that life was over. Wanting only to disappear and become just another face in the crowd, she cashed in on her unwanted fame and moved to a small town, hidden away and safe.

Retired. That was Sean's life. A former covert operative - the kind the government denies exists - he'd been pushed unwillingly into a life of suburban peace and quiet. But his retirement ended when he saw Jennifer's rescue; from then on he only wanted to find those responsible for the attack, even if it meant turning rogue.

What Jennifer and Sean will both find is that nothing goes to plan, and their paths will cross in a way neither could have foreseen.

The Rescue, by Carolyn Reardon-Neuman. (Still 3.99?)

"This life-affirming book is a must read for anyone who has ever loved a dog, raised a child, or been affected by cancer. You will laugh, and you will cry. You will fall in love with a rescue dog, and be inspired by his grateful owner who with honesty, humor, and incredible wisdom triumphs in her battle with breast cancer. This book will leave you with a renewed appreciation for your family, your friends, the simple pleasures in life...and of course, your dog." -- Amazon reviewer

THE RESCUE is a memoir that chronicles, with a dose of humor, the experience of rescuing a dog who was close to death. This particular dog returned the favor and was pivotal in rescuing me, a year later, from the very same condition.

The story is based on Cape Cod, where I have lived for 22 years with my husband and daughter. We are a typical middle class family, balancing work and the rigors of raising a teenage daughter. I am a self employed graphic designer/copywriter working out of our home. It features our dog Poe, a Border Collie/Sheltie mix. We rescued Poe from a shelter, where we found him sick, starving and terrified. In an effort to bring Poe back to life through regular walking, jogging and exercise, I met many wonderful dogs and “dog people”. These new people brought into our lives by Poe would figure prominently in our lives after I received a breast cancer diagnosis at age 45. Through the diagnosis, subsequent treatment and eventual recovery, my love for Poe and the kindness of the “dog people” helped rescue me. Poe and I are now both healthy, happy, and grateful for each other.

This is not a cancer book, although cancer is a major topic. This is not strictly a dog book either, though dogs are at its heart. This is a book about appreciating the little things that bring you joy, finding humor in whatever life throws at you and finding ways to cope through difficult trials. I hope it is a humorous account of coping with life and the “booby prize” of breast cancer.

The Philanthropist's Danse, by Paul Wornham. (Still 3.99?)

"The Philanthropist's Danse delivers smart, psychological drama of the type I haven't seen in quite some time. Take "12 Angry Men", the psychological gymnastics of "The Game", add a little sexual innuendo, and tie it all together with 12 personalities that clash incessantly. Then, let an impartial lawyer lay out and enforce the ground rules with the assistance of a highly skilled majordomo. With that, the Danse is off to a smashing start, full of arguments, tantrums, and a fair bit of grousing about who "deserves" the money. The question is a legitimate one, as many in the room don't even know why Mr. Thurwell summoned them posthumously." -- Amazon reviewer

Twelve people. Five days. One fortune.

Johnston Thurwell, one of the world’s richest men, dies unexpectedly. His family expects to inherit his wealth, but instead discover the dying philanthropist has spent his last days planning something called The Danse. The twelve most important people in his life are brought together to decide the most important question at the end of it. Who will inherit his fortune?

The family is sequestered in the philanthropists’ remote country mansion with a group that includes his best friend, his most loyal servants, and his greatest rival. They must agree who among them will share the fortune, but they must do it against the clock. Every twenty-four hours, the fortune is reduced. In just five days, it will all be gone.

The thin veneer of civility among the twelve is ripped away by naked greed as their lust for money drives them into betrayal, blackmail and violence.

The desperate family will do anything to save their inheritance. Except share it.
