Making Waves (Lake Manawa Summers Book #1): A Novel, by Lorna Seilstad. (Still free?)

"Marguerite Westing is constantly pushing the boundaries of proper behavior in 1895 with her interest in astronomy, sailing, and other unfeminine pursuits. Her father indulges her, but her mother insists she marry Roger Gordon, a wealthy, socially prominent but boring and self-absorbed businessman. Marguerite’s besetting sins are her flippancy, her impulsiveness, and her tendency to lie in order to get her way, all of which continuously land her in trouble. At Lake Manawa, she meets Trip Andrews, a boatmaker who needs to win the regatta and really doesn’t like liars, and by lying she convinces him to teach her and her younger brother to sail. They fall in love, but Roger keeps turning up at the camp to badger her into accepting his suit, and Marguerite learns that unless she does, her entire family will suffer financially. Seilstad’s light Christian historical romance sets the stage for subsequent tales featuring Iowa’s elite at summer camp." -- Amazon reviewer

When spunky Marguerite Westing discovers that her family will summer at Lake Manawa in 1895, she couldn't be more thrilled. It is the perfect way to escape her agonizingly boring suitor, Roger Gordon. It's also where she stumbles upon two new loves: sailing, and sailing instructor Trip Andrews. But this summer of fun turns to turmoil as her father's gambling problems threaten to ruin the family forever. Will free-spirited Marguerite marry Roger to save her father's name and fortune? Or will she follow her heart--even if it means abandoning the family she loves?

Roy Walker is curious. But in a world where knowledge has disappeared, curiosity will get you killed.

Generations ago, the Passim Virus wiped out most of humanity. The survivors banded together to form the Territory and, now, decades later, no one questions why knowledge has disappeared. Why should they? They're lucky to be alive.

But Roy doesn't feel so lucky. He's haunted by the murder of his father and he's ostracized by everyone in town. He asks way too many questions, especially about the water pumped out by the town's desalination plant.

Then Roy finds a tantalizing clue that leads him down the coast of what used to be the state of Oregon. He's stunned at what he discovers. Everything in the Territory is a lie and everything around him is a front. But to uncover the dark secret behind this front, Roy must venture deeper into the wilderness where marauders and the deadly Passim Virus wait to kill.

It's there, outside the Territory, where he discovers the truth about his father's murder and where he meets his unexpected destiny -- to free humanity from the bondage of a powerful enemy.

Murder for Greenhorns, by Robert Kresge. (Still free?)

"Kate Shaw and Monday Malone are fresh and engaging detectives! A page-turner of a debut mystery, with characters you'll want to visit again and again." -- Margaret Coel, New York Times bestselling author of the The Spider's Web

Targets in 1870 Wyoming

When lawman Sam Taggart is killed by a long-range rifle shot, his two traveling companions, newly-minted schoolteacher Kate Shaw and Texas cowboy Monday Malone, are left unharmed. The shooter's tracks point toward their destination, the town of Warbonnet. Since Kate and the marshal were hired sight-unseen, on the basis of letters, she persuades a reluctant Monday to take Taggart's identity in hopes of rooting out the killer.

Now these two greenhorns have to survive long enough to find a murderer. Can they also endure the bitter secrets each of them carries in their hearts?

After a career as a CIA senior analyst, Rob Kresge was inspired by early Wyoming history, a territory and state which, to paraphrase Churchill on the Balkans, "manufactured more history than could be consumed locally." Kresge took pieces from his own background (such as learning to ride in Wyoming's Tetons) to craft a story made possible by the lack of identity documents in the early West. "Basically, you could be anyone you claimed to be. Unless you met up with someone who knew better."
