Save $3 today on this crafty mystery from USA Today bestseller Rose Pressey.

"Raelyn is just your typical small town outsider. No one seems to like her because she has divorced one of their "shining" boys. Now she is stuck in this small town with no one but her best friend Claire Ann. Until she discovers that she has become the new heiress to a large Victorian home, left to her by a virtual stranger. Now, she knows no one really likes her. From her crazy neighbor lady to the town's own Mayor's wife. Her first night in her new home finds her cowering in her bedroom with strange noises, only to come down the next morning to find a dead body in her yard. What more can happen, you might ask, a whole lot more and then some! A new must read from Rose Pressey! Can't wait for the sequel! Love her books!" -- Amazon reviewer

It's summertime in Honeysuckle, and everyone is lazing in the shade with a tall glass of lemonade. Everyone except Raelynn Pendleton. She's stuck working at the local store to make the rent while her no-good ex-husband lives it up with a floozy.

When she inherits a Victorian house, Raelynn jumps at the chance to turn her life around. How can she afford the upkeep on such a huge place? Simple. She'll run it as a hotel. Problem is, she has no experience and the d├ęcor dates back to the Dark Ages. She'll have to use her secret talent for turning junk into treasure or she'll never snag an overnight guest.

But before the new Honeysuckle Hotel even opens for business, Raelynn discovers the body of a young woman in the garden. As a newcomer in town, Raelynn is blamed for the murder. She's fired from her job, which could mean she'll lose the house. The only way to save Honeysuckle Hotel is to find the real killer - with or without the sexy Sheriff Kent Klein.

One way or another, Honeysuckle will be buzzing.

The Teflon Queen, by Silk White. (Still free?)

"This was a very good read. It is just so ironic that the very things that Wayne tried to tell Capo, Capo tried to tell Bones with the same results. I couldn't stop reading until until the book was completed. With the exception of Wayne, all the characters were believable. Wayne just seemed undeveloped. Very suspenseful and a page turner. I hope Shekia and Scarface make it and I really hope Angela pull through. James came across as too arrogant for my taste. A very good read. Highly recommended." -- Amazon reviewer

Angela is a renowned assassin "only" known by the name "the Teflon Queen". Her lethal grace, steady shot, and unmatched accuracy have made her the absolute best and most sought after killer in the game. But when the killer without a conscience is faced with an unknown emotion.... LOVE. Her whole perception is thrown off course and in a profession where second guessing can mean life or death ....will the queen reign supreme or be overthrown?

Stone and Silt, by Harvey Chute. (Still 4.99?)

If you buy (or already have) the printed book, the ebook is only $0.99, through Amazon's new Matchbook program. Tip: buy the print book as a gift for that mystery-loving reader you know, and get the ebook for yourself at the Matchbook price!

"This book has a lot of history about the Gold Rush, how people lived in the 1860s, British Columbia and different cultures. Was I enthralled? Hell, yes! Why? Because it has what I so need to make History an exciting and readable subject, historical facts weaved expertly into a fictional tale. The beginning was a little bit slow (though still fascinating) as I learned about Nikaia and her family (dad, mom, 14-yr-old sister Klima) and her day-to-day life, but as soon as she and Yee Sim stumbled across the gold it picked right up and galloped to the end. All-in-all an excellent YA Historical Mystery." -- Amazon reviewer

A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love.

Wilderness (Short Story) (Kindle Single), by Dean Koontz. (Still 0.99?)

This short morsel from bestselling author Dean Koontz has climbed to the top 10 paid books in the Kindle store.

"This short story, a mere thirty pages, follows Addison on an adrenaline-fueled race through the forest. I have to say that I felt anxious the entire time. Koontz has penned a fantastic short thriller when compared to his most recent efforts. Since "Wilderness" serves as a prologue to his next novel, Innocence, to be published in December, I am waiting in anticipation to read Addison's full story. I want to know what he looks like, why his mother will not look at him, or even acknowledge his existence to the world. I hope that Koontz will deliver his forthcoming novel with as much adrenaline as he did with this." -- Amazon reviewer

With this darkly intriguing original e-short story, #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz sets the stage for his masterly new novel of mystery, suspense, and strange wonder—Innocence.

“The world is a machine that produces endless surprises and mysteries layered on mysteries.”

Addison Goodheart is a mystery even to himself. He was born in an isolated home surrounded by a deep forest, never known to his father, kept secret from everyone but his mother, who barely accepts him. She is haunted by private demons and keeps many secrets—none of which she dreads more than the young son who adores her.

Only in the woods, among the wildlife, is Addison truly welcome. Only there can he be at peace. Until the day he first knows terror, the day when his life changes radically and forever . . .

Acclaim for Dean Koontz

“A rarity among bestselling writers, Koontz continues to pursue new ways of telling stories, never content with repeating himself.”Chicago Sun-Times

“Tumbling, hallucinogenic prose. ‘Serious’ writers . . . might do well to examine his technique.”The New York Times Book Review

“[Koontz] has always had near-Dickensian powers of description, and an ability to yank us from one page to the next that few novelists can match.”—Los Angeles Times

“Koontz is a superb plotter and wordsmith. He chronicles the hopes and fears of our time in broad strokes and fine detail, using popular fiction to explore the human condition.”USA Today

“Characters and the search for meaning, exquisitely crafted, are the soul of [Koontz’s] work. . . . One of the master storytellers of this or any age.”The Tampa Tribune

“A literary juggler.”The Times (London)
