Bargain Kindle book! (Thursday Nov 7)

The Case of the Not-So-Fair Trader (A Richard Sherlock Whodunit), by Jim Stevens. (Still 0.99?)

"I loved it. It was a good mystery and it was funny and made me laugh out loud a few times. This was the first in a new series and it introduced some characters I hope will stay around and be developed. I would definitely recommend this book, especially if you like witty characters and a good whodunit!" -- Amazon reviewer

A despicable stock trader is found buried under an avalanche of his own garden rocks, causing fired-from-the force- Richard Sherlock to be yanked off the bowling alley and whisked to the crime scene by his pampered protegee Tiffany Richmond. He must prove murder and stop payment of the twelve-million-dollar Richmond Insurance policy.
Nothing makes sense. Crime scene is a mess. There is no money trail. There are too many motives from too many suspects who have too many alibis. Worst of all Sherlock's bad back is acting up, his ex-wife wants more money and the murder investigation is putting a serious dent in his parenting schedule of his two daughters.
Richard Sherlock hates his job, and may be a reluctant dick, but he is better at finding the WHO in WHODUNIT than anyone else.

Unraveled- 8 Delicious Tales of Passion, by Sara Fawkes. (Still 0.96?)

A 600-page boxed set of spicy novels. Warning: adult content.

"I haven't read the entire series yet, as I went to one of my favorite authors, Lauren Hawkeye. I will definitely read the other as soon as possible. If Lauren's is any indication of what the other stories entail, well, I'm in heaven. Loved the interaction between the characters of Mal and Adele, and of course Dorian. The story moved really well and at one point, I was yelling at my Kindle. Thank goodness all was resolved to my needs. Passionate, loving, sexy, sad, happy, all the emotions rolled into one, a little too short, if I may say, story. I'm hoping that the author will consider giving us a sneak peek into their future lives." -- Amazon reviewer

"I loved this book! Hang A Crooked Number is terrific in so many ways. It's a great thriller, a great baseball book and a great examination of loss both personal and shared (without ever being a downer). I highly recommend this book." -- Amazon reviewer

"A story based around the myth of mermaids is something unique to you as I've not come across another before. You have a captivating style that is easy to read. I found myself at the end of the page, even moved on to the next part before I realized I hadn't commented on this one. Very informative without being monotonous. Okay, I'm seriously loving this." - Jewel

"Okay, you have me captivated. Mainly because I have always adored mermaids... Reminded me a tad of the little mermaid, but with a lot more depth and mystery. I like your use of detail through out your chapters. Just enough to get a clear picture and I can tell you have done a lot of research as well."- Shattered Violet

"This was great. I haven't read anything like this. Though the ending was unexpected, I was nevertheless captivated. Loved the synopsis, by the way. It was just quirky as hell, lol. I usually don't read stuff like this, but it's such a quirky blend that I can't help myself." - Lady Harlequin

Sirens don't fall in love with humans. For centuries it has been so...
But Sirena is different. She lost her first love to sharks and a storm, cursing the islands that stole him from her.
Times have changed and she must swim ashore once more, to the islands she once cursed.
Gone are the boats powered by sail and steam - jet boats with GPS are now the order of the day.
Enter Joe, the deckhand on the Dolphin. A handy man to have around when the lights go out. He'll fix your generator and have the lights back on in no time, no worries.
But can he seduce a siren?
Or will she swim away before he can uncover her secret?
A book about lobsters, beer and boobs, on some cursed islands off the coast of Western Australia. At least, that's how Joe tells it.
For Sirena, it's a very different story.

A tiny taste of what's in store:

The boat was almost full of water now, I realised in panic, as I groped for a bucket to start baling. Throwing bucket after bucket overboard, I couldn't tell if I was making any difference to the water level in the boat.
One moment I was holding the bucket, about to scoop up more water, the next I was flying through the air. Immersed in cold, black water, I couldn't see the surface. I struggled, kicking in the direction I thought was up, and hit a rock. I jerked back reflexively and my head cleared the water. I gulped a huge lungful of air and grabbed for the rock. I had to hold on 'til daylight.
Another big wave broke. I tried to keep hold of the slimy rock, but I was pushed out of reach, drifting in the current. I tried to kick my legs, but I wasn't sure if I did. I couldn't feel my feet and the numbness was creeping up my legs.
I could hear the breakers on the outer reef, louder than they were from shore. I could feel the spray on my face. A wave washed over me and I was under the water again.
I thought I could feel someone beside me, rolling me over so my face was at the surface, pulling my body through the water.
All I could hear was an unearthly singing, high and sad, like some kind of suicidal dolphin. I could say I blacked out, but everything was already so black I wouldn't have noticed the difference.
I checked out of Hotel Consciousness. At least I got to dream of Vanessa naked.
