"Mystery, suspense, excitement! The mystery is believable and the well-paced action kept me reading. It was both entertaining and suspenseful. I hope we'll get more stories about Paige and Jake!" -- Amazon reviewer

When Paige MacKenzie arrives in Jackson Hole, her only goal is to complete a simple newspaper assignment about the Old West. However, it's not long before her instincts tell her there's more than a basic story to be found in the popular, northwestern Wyoming mountain area. A chance encounter with attractive cowboy Jake Norris soon has Paige chasing a legend of buried treasure, passed down through generations.

From the torn edge of a water-damaged map to the mysterious glow of an antler arch, Paige will follow clues high into the mountainous terrain and deep into Jackson's history. Side-stepping a few shady characters who are also searching for the same hidden reward, she will have to decide who is trustworthy and who is not.

The Hidden Auditorium, by Rosanne Dingli. (Still 2.99?)

"The Hidden Auditorium is a captivating novel, in which the past, casts in an aura of mystery, horror and foreboding is slowly revealed though fast-paced and unexpected twists and turns taking place in the present. It is a mystery, a romance, and a reinterpretation of a composer’s life, all brilliantly researched and wrapped up in an original plot that keeps one spellbound to the end, not only because of the evocative passages dealing with classical music and the aura of Venice in the 19th century, but also because of two completely unexpected revelations, one romantic and the other related to music and history itself. Refreshing to read something so different and yet truly original!" -- Amazon reviewer

When Richard Wagner died in Venice in 1883, it was the end of a creative and tumultuous life. His family grieved, and the world lost a brilliant composer. 

Nearly 130 years later, antiques dealer Nic Manton is led to a valuable pendant he feels provides a solution to his precarious finances. With no idea of its meaning or provenance, he is mystified why the pendant creates such fear and confusion, and aggravates rather than solves his problems. Its apparent owner is beautiful but erratic. She leads him from Rome to Venice and then to Malta, on a chase that becomes more perplexing and dangerous than it has to be. A melancholic widow and a brilliant but vague professor are willing to help. But Manton doubts whether they can.
 

"...beautifully written." Boyd Lemon
 

An exhilarating story of romance and historical intrigue, The Hidden Auditorium is an atmospheric journey that tantalizes devotees of classical music, pleases lovers of old jewellery, and intrigues fans of traditional mysteries. Staged in beautiful locations for which Rosanne Dingli's work has become much sought-after, this is a novel of extraordinary power.

Sleep Tight, by Rachel Abbott. (Still 0.99?)

"Darkly brilliant! The author grabbed me by the throat and wouldn't let go. I read it late into the night. This is more of a dark psychological mystery. The fast action doesn't begin until the end of the book. So readers that love a lot of action may not like this. I loved it, and the end was a huge surprise." -- Amazon reviewer

From the author of the bestselling novels Only the Innocent and The Back Road

How far would you go to hold on to the people you love?

When Olivia Brookes calls the police to report that her husband and children are missing, she believes she will never see them again. She has reason to fear the worst; this isn't the first tragedy that Olivia has experienced. Now, two years later, Detective Chief Inspector Tom Douglas is called in to investigate this family again, but this time it's Olivia who has disappeared. All the evidence suggests that she was here, in the family home, that morning.

But her car is in the garage, and her purse is in her handbag... on the kitchen table. The police want to issue an appeal, but for some reason every single picture of this family has been removed from albums, from phones, from computers.

And then they find the blood...

Has the past caught up with Olivia?

Sleep Tight... if you can. You never know who's watching.

Bad Karma in the Big Easy, by D.J. Donaldson. (Still 0.99?)

"Andy and Kit are a match made in mystery heaven." --THE CLARION LEDGER

"Donaldson has established himself as a master of the Gothic mystery." --BOOKLIST

Andy Broussard, the plump and proud New Orleans medical examiner, obviously loves food. Less apparent to the casual observer is his hatred of murderers. Together with his gorgeous sidekick, psychologist Kit Franklyn, the two make a powerful, although improbable, mystery-solving duo. Among the dead collected in The Big Easy floodwaters after Hurricane Katrina are three nude female bodies, all caught in the same brush tangle, none with water in their lungs. Broussard knows in his ample gut that this was not an act of God, and not the work of Katrina. But Broussard has perhaps the biggest challenge of his colorful career. The city and all its records are destroyed, practically the entire population is scattered, the police force has no offices, and many of the rank and file (who haven't defected) are homeless. Soon, Broussard and his sidekick are on a dangerous journey through the obscenely damaged city, leading them to a kind of evil that neither of them could imagine.

310 pages, with a 4.3-star rating from 31 reviews.
