"Very exciting book. This author keeps you on pins and needles with this book. Very exciting story lines and characters. As the story unfolds you feel the pain of loosing a loved one and the absolute evil in what self importance and greed will due. Toward the last chapter of the book you think you know all the players but not the why. Justice has her day but not till more are hurt. Very good book." -- Amazon reviewer

Marxie Vaughn becomes a widow at twenty-five years old when her police officer husband, Evan, is tragically killed—reduced to ashes in an explosion in the line of duty in their small Georgia town. Without even a body to bury, Marxie is left to deal with the sorrow of his abrupt and brutal end. Seeking to start anew, she packs up and moves east to Savannah.

But when Detective Grant Carter knocks on her door two years after the accident, Marxie’s carefully rebuilt world turns upside down once more. The grim detective gives Marxie unimaginable news: Evan’s body has been found in a nearby canal.

Desperate for answers, Marxie embarks on a fascinating, complex and heart-wrenching journey to find out exactly what happened to the man she loved. And though the intriguing detective may be working under ulterior motives, he puts his whole being into helping the young widow bring closure to a mystery that haunts her every waking moment. Together, Grant and Marxie work to unearth a secret that runs as deep and murky as Savannah’s canals.

JUMP's swift-paced narration produces goose bumps of apprehension. Through it all, Jeremy poses unanswerable, yet universal questions. "How did all of this start? Who am I? There's so much more to learn about Jeremy . JUMP is a fresh and compelling story which explores new and interesting territory. You can't put it down." -- Amazon reviewer

Lifetime Loser (Prairie Winds Golf Course), by James Ross. (Still 1.99?)

Save today on this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"A must read! I was pleasantly surprised by how riveting the story was. My husband picked up this book at the country club a couple of months ago and told me how great it was. I don't play golf so I was in no hurry to read it. Last weekend I picked it up and couldn't put the book down. What a fascinating story! Who would have thought the gentlemen's game of golf could have such a twist. I found the story compelling and enlightening." -- Amazon reviewer

After running a worn-out golf course on the east side of St. Louis for fifteen years J.W. Schroeder (J Dub) learns that his partner had been skimming profits the entire time. But even worse, J Dub discovers that he was an unknowing participant in a decades-old swindle and a victim of fraud.

In this civil versus criminal justice drama J Dub is thrown into a court system that is lengthy and costly to protect his family and correct an evil secret that had been withheld from him for years.

The controlling partner, Lewferd E. Zerrmann, aligns himself with a dishonest attorney, a deceitful accountant and a corrupt politician to derail a government investigation and an IRS audit. He survives title improprieties and outlasts an overzealous U. S. Attorney. No one seems to be able to penetrate the isolated walls of Lew’s fortress until J Dub steps up and risks it all to fight for what is his.

Who said real life was anything like “the gentleman’s game”?

My Grandfather's Eyes (mystery and suspense), by B A Spicer. (Still $0.99?)

"Alex is such a unique character and so different from many other heroines. Parts of her character are seriously flawed and yet the author has so artfully created her to still be endearing in her honesty. This book is expertly written, full of beautiful descriptions and every sense is heightened particularly her use of the characters sense of touch. There are so many layers to this book and the secrets this family have concealed for many years are gradually revealed. BA Spicer keeps us guessing right to the end, in this brilliant psychological drama that I could definitely see being snapped up for TV." -- Amazon reviewer

Alex Crane is a protagonist with a difference. Single-minded and, at times, glacial in her response to the people around her, she has learned to face the world in spite of her unusual appearance. Her story begins in the past, unfolding into a multilayered plot that weaves its way through a family history peppered with secrets, towards a devastating conclusion.

"It's one of those books that you regret having to turn the light out for." Amazon reviewer

"...'My Grandfather's Eyes' will demand your complete attention from beginning to end." Amazon reviewer

"Superb writing." Amazon reviewer

The Savvy Manager: A Guide to Running Your Fast-Growing Business [Tips for Investors and Entrepreneurs], by Lee Pryor. (Still 0.99?)

"Experienced advice, easy to digest. Lee Prior has taken his years of experience starting and running businesses and developed a 'How To' guide for entrepreneurs. With a writing style that is 'chummy' and light he doles out the skinny on the nuts and bolts of running a successful business. The Savvy Entrepreneur's greatest strength is the depth of advice that it holds. Lee Prior begins each section of this book with an attention getting quote, follows the quote with a real life example of the principle that he is trying to explain and then goes on to describe at length the steps to avoid and to be taken to become successful in your business. The author ends the book with some advice on raising cash and on financing and with a checklist of what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. The checklist has 12 traits that are scored on a one to ten scale and anyone who is seriously considering starting a company owe it to themselves to take the reality check that this quick checklist provides." -- Amazon reviewer

[Formerly The Savvy Entrepreneur].

“Pryor brings exceptional knowledge and understanding of the entrepreneurial world … He is an unusual storyteller. This book is obligatory for those interested in succeeding.” –Steve Millard, Board of Directors, Northwestern Kellogg Business School, Evanston, IL

Serial entrepreneur Lee Pryor thinks starting a new business and successfully managing its growth is one of the most important and satisfying things a person can do. From company culture through long-term strategy, this hands-on guide for start-up managers covers leadership, raising money, hiring, and communication. Pryor’s straightforward managing techniques, culled from real-life experiences, apply equally to technology-oriented and low-tech businesses.

Pryor, a veteran of Time Warner and IBM (and frequent CEO), writes in a breezy, anecdotal, humorous style that encourages consumption in small, delicious bites between phone calls that will leave the reader laughing. And savvy.

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING:
I wish I had this book 20 years ago. Would have avoided lots of expensive mistakes.” –Worth Brown, co-founder of Little Palm Island Resort, Florida Keys

The Savvy Manager is very much to the point without a bunch of BS fluff.” –Creighton Bildstein, CEO, ATNI Corp, Aurora, CO

“ 'If you can’t tell people what you do in one sentence, then you don’t know what you do.’ I love the conversational and humorous style of this book.” –Thomas Calabro, TV producer and director, Los Angeles, CA

“I have tried reading many business books, but never can finish—I read The Savvy Manager from start to finish without putting it down—it just pulls you right in.” –Peter Eichler, CEO, Unity Technology, LaComb, LA

FROM THE AUTHOR:
This book is about managing start-ups and small- to medium-size companies. It’s for the people who start them, run them, and invest in them. This book is not intended for Mom and Pop businesses unless there is a sparkle in your eye to expand your business. It is written to help entrepreneurs and managers of growing enterprises recognize management practices that make start-ups, as well as small- and medium-size businesses grow into successful, profitable companies.

Entrepreneurship is in some ways like parenthood: these two critical endeavors typically get less formal training than a McDonald’s burger slinger. The attempt here is to help with the first of these, not the second one.

My knowledge comes from the first-hand experience of founding and running a successful start-up, which grew to $48 million in sales, and then managing, over a period of years, six small-to medium-size, growing entrepreneurial businesses. After running a few of them, I began to see similar management patterns. This book covers the many successful and unsuccessful management practices.

EXCERPT:
About three months later, I was at a computer convention as one of the IBM sales people giving demonstrations of some of IBM’s latest equipment. I had just finished one of those group demos, and from the raised platform I was standing on, I saw a bunch of blue suits who had been watching.

I saw my branch manager, three other branch managers, two regional managers, and one divisional manager all gathered around “himself,” Gil Jones.

I thought maybe they were all practicing for an invasion of some poor third world Republic.

Every one of the managers wanted a piece of Jones’s time since he had flown in from New York for just 8 hours.

Here it comes!

Gil Jones yells up, “Hey, Lee Pryor,” grabs my hand to shake and says, “Can you meet me upstairs in the coffee shop for lunch; I’d like to hear what’s really going on in the field.”

Talk about reaching from the top down to the bottom! Not only did I meet Jones for lunch, but he kept asking questions. You know what, he listened and took notes
