Uneasy Spirits: A Victorian San Francisco Mystery, by M. Louisa Locke. (Still 0.99?)

Save $3 on this Countdown Deal!

"This is a skillfully crafted mystery with wonderful recurring characters who are the kind of people that live with the reader long after the book is finished." -- RP Dahlke, author of A Dangerous Harbor

In this sequel to Maids of Misfortune, it is the fall of 1879 and Annie Fuller, a young San Francisco widow, has a problem. Despite her growing financial success as the clairvoyant Madam Sibyl, Annie doesn't believe in the astrology and palmistry her clients think are the basis for her advice.

Kathleen Hennessey, Annie Fuller's young Irish maid, has a plan. When her mistress is asked to expose a fraudulent trance medium, Arabella Frampton, Kathleen is determined to assist in the investigation, just like the Pinkerton detectives she has read about in the dime novels. 


Nate Dawson, up-and-coming San Francisco lawyer, has a dilemma. He wants to marry the unconventional Annie Fuller, but he doesn't feel he can reveal his true feelings until he has a way to make enough money to support her.
 

In Uneasy Spirits, this cozy historical mystery of romantic suspense, Annie delves into the intriguing world of 19th century spiritualism, encountering true believers and naïve dupes, clever frauds and unexplained supernatural phenomena. She will soon find there are as many secrets as there are spirits swirling around the Frampton séance table. Some of those secrets will threaten the foundation of her career as Madam Sibyl and the future of her relationship with Nate Dawson, and, in time, they will threaten her very life itself. 

Uneasy Spirits is the second book in M. Louisa Locke's Victorian historical mystery series, followed by Bloody Lessons. There are currently three short stories based on the characters from the novels, Dandy Detects, The Misses Moffet Mend a Marriage, and Mr. Wong Rights a Wrong.

Deadly Dozen: 12 Mysteries/Thrillers (Still 0.99?)

"Outstanding! This is it. The fix for a binge of crime fiction, thrillers and general mayhem. Many readers might go into this collection only being familiar with a few authors (mine were Vincent Zandri and Allan Leverone, both of whom I consider to be top-tier crime/thriller writers). What's really cool about the 12 is how closely related the authors are to each other. Since I already liked Zandri and Leverone, there was a good chance I'd like the other 10. And I certainly did." -- Amazon reviewer

The Solitude Myth, by Bill Lloyd. (Still 0.99?)

Save $2 on this Countdown Deal!

"It is such a great pleasure to read this novel. As you turn the pages more and more eagerly you are drawn into the mystery of David’s life, the people crossing his path and his struggle to find out which role to be or play. Besides the existential questions I especially enjoyed the wonderfully precise description of the small town and life in southern France outside the tourist areas where David spends a couple of months." -- Amazon reviewer

All truth is subjective. At least that is what David believes as he sets out to change his life. A New Yorker in his early thirties, he breaks up with Hannah - the woman he's been with since college days - and moves to Paris to work for an international aid agency. He enjoys the challenge of his new job and the understated love affair he embarks upon with the quintessential Parisian Colette, but at some point his carefully scripted story goes awry. After returning from a brief vacation he begins to experience memory lapses. He visits the enigmatic Dr. Schlichter who advises him to seek rest in the town of Saint-Jude located somewhere in the south of France. As he struggles to regain control of his life he keeps bumping into people who seem to know him better than he knows himself, including the lovely Celeste who encourages him to confront the deeper implications of his missing memories. She leads him to the point where he must decide what is real and what isn't in a world full of contradictions and illusions. Genre: literary fiction. Length: approximately 50,000 words.

125 pages, with a 5.0-star rating from 3 reviews.

Connected by the Sea (Hawaiian Crush #1), by E. L. Todd. (Still free?)

"Connected by the Sea by E. L. Todd is a story of reaching out for love, learning to trust another person, and to place the value of true love above all else. E. L. Todd has created a wonderful and very likable cast of supporting characters that give that “true to life, less than perfect” feeling to this roller coaster of a romance. A quick read with moments of lightness as warm as a tropical breeze, I think many would enjoy this journey to finding love in Hawaii." -- Amazon reviewer

Living in paradise, Sydney loves her job, her friends, and her passion for marine biology. Her best friend, Henry, has an invested interest in her, but Sydney never seems to notice. While Henry is the perfect man, she only dates the wrong guys. Her ex-boyfriend cheated on her, broke her heart, and now she’s too shattered to give anyone a chance.

Until Coen…

A sexy bad boy with a tattoo, he elicits dark desires Sydney hasn’t felt in so long. His intense eyes, the color of the sea, capture her sight, making it impossible to look away. She tries to avoid him, knowing he’s no good for her, but Coen, who always gets what he wants, doesn’t take no for an answer.

Will Sydney regret this decision' Or will she find what’s been missing her entire life? The family she lost, the loves she misses, and the trust she never thought she could have for someone else?
