Maids of Misfortune: A Victorian San Francisco Mystery, by M. Louisa Locke. (Still 0.99?)

Save $3 on this mystery while it's a Kindle Countdown Deal!

"Annie, the main character of Maids of Misfortune, a feisty pseudo-psychic, is so real she seems to walk off the page. Her male cohort, the lawyer Nate, is the epitome of gentlemanly sex appeal. The mystery advances the sizzling but restrained attraction between Annie and Nate to an almost unbearable pitch as it leads them into the most interesting by-ways and corners of Victorian San Francisco. The mystery is not so easy to solve, in spite of the clues, and yet its solution satisfies. M. Louisa Locke has a Ph.D. in history, and her research is meticulous. However, she never lets it stand in the way of her story-telling, and, in fact, her deep knowledge of the past enriches the story and makes it more credible even as it overturns your pre-conceptions of the nineteenth century." -- Amazon reviewer

It's the summer of 1879, and Annie Fuller, a young San Francisco widow, is in trouble. Annie's husband squandered her fortune before committing suicide five years earlier, and one of his creditors is now threatening to take the boardinghouse she owns to pay off a debt.

Annie Fuller also has a secret. She supplements her income by giving domestic and business advice as Madam Sibyl, one of San Francisco's most exclusive clairvoyants, and one of Madam Sibyl's clients, Matthew Voss, has died. The police believe his death was suicide brought upon by bankruptcy, but Annie believes Voss has been murdered and that his assets have been stolen.

Nate Dawson has a problem. As the Voss family lawyer, he would love to believe that Matthew Voss didn't leave his grieving family destitute. But that would mean working with Annie Fuller, a woman who alternatively attracts and infuriates him as she shatters every notion he ever had of proper ladylike behavior.

Sparks fly as Anne and Nate pursue the truth about the murder of Matthew Voss in this light-hearted, cozy historical mystery set in the foggy gas-lit world of Victorian San Francisco. Maids of Misfortune is the first book in M. Louisa Locke's historical mystery series, the sequel is Uneasy Spirits, and there are currently two short stories based on the characters from the novels, Dandy Detects, and The Misses Moffet Mend a Marriage.

The Privateer Clause (Marsha & Danny Jones Thriller), by Ken Rossignol. (Still free?)

"Are cruise passengers bored to tears? Not on the Sea Empress. All manner of mayhem strikes as soon as Marsha and Danny Jones hire on as security." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

The first in the Marsha & Danny Jones Thrillers series.
My wife just shot our waiter between the eyes when he came in with breakfast...
 

But, he had it coming to him as he had a gun on the tray and was going to give us Eggs Benedict with a Glock!
 

Join Marsha and I as we work really hard to protect the Sea Empress and her passengers from threats from every direction. There have been so many shots taken at this ship by terrorists that the cruise line thought their business would sink. That is why we were hired to provide security. Things go so bad that the passengers were taking photos and video and emailing the explosions and hostage scene to CNN and Fox News. Instead of scaring off passengers, bookings for the ship went through the roof. The Seven Seas Company caught the spirit of the passengers and even set up a special for the ship theatre with a pirate theme!

Finally, my wife and I needed a break and took a week off to sail on a private charter at the Grenadines and wouldn't you know, two local thugs dressed up as pirates tried to rob us while we sat at anchor for an intimate dinner for two. Well, our cook was great at other things besides her lobster spaghetti. 


WARNING: In case you heard those pronouncements from the politicians that the war on terror was over and now you want to book a cruise...breeze along with us for a few voyages. We promise the ship will not visit Egypt or anywhere in the Middle East. Yet.
 

Welcome Aboard!

The Cloudstone Key (The Rithhek Cage Trilogy: Book 1), by Darren T. Patrick. (Still 0.99?)

"An intriguing debut. I was not expecting to be KNOCKED OFF MY FEET. I really enjoyed this. This book was a fun ride in the veins of Terry Brooks and Michael J. Sullivan, and not grimdark. A rich, extremely interesting world, I understand why the author offers a free guide to the world of Tholann on his website; you're going to want more once you get a taste. I look forward very much to the next planned two instalments of the Rithhek Cage trilogy, and whatever else Mr. Patrick has to offer!" -- Amazon reviewer

In the remote mining village of Aystin, Karsen Morgate secretly longs to explore the world outside the town walls; but instead dutifully spends his nights protecting the precious Cloudstone tiles--mined by his father, and engraved with mystical symbols and lore by the reclusive Adept Noxyn. When his half-brother, Petr, commits a gruesome crime, Karsen is forced to flee his home, carrying with him a tile depicting a unique artifact--the Ennae--entrusted to his care by the Adept himself. Alone, ailing, and on the run, Karsen must find help, find his way, and decipher the true meaning of the Ennae. For he soon realizes that he is being pursued by the dark brotherhood of the Shroud, and that he has somehow become an unwilling pawn in an ancient conflict.

The Shroud is stirring.
The world of Tholann is in danger.
And young Karsen Morgate is in the middle of it.
