A Good Man Gone (Mercy Watts Mysteries), by A.W. Hartoin. (Still free?)

"A fun mystery that is entertaining enough to make me want to read more. The character reminds me a bit of Stephanie Plum in the earliest stories. Some of the details are parceled out slowly throughout the story, which I find a good technique that keeps me turning the page. The actual mystery is secondary to character development, and I was more interested in knowing what would happen to the various people, and not so concerned about who was the guilty party. I will definitely read more books by this author." -- Amazon reviewer

Double Black Diamond (Book Three) has been released. Time to go skiing.

It's summer in St. Louis and Mercy Watts is on vacation from her parents. The great detective and his nosy wife are on a cruise and Mercy thinks she's off the hook for doing any investigating for them. But when a family friend has a fatal heart attack, Dad has one of his famous feelings and orders Mercy to look into it. Mercy tries not to get sucked in. She really does, but she's her father's daughter. Soon Gavin's death leads to a more grisly one, the death of a bride on her wedding day. Can the two be connected? Was Gavin murdered? Now Mercy can't stop. You do for family. That's all there is to it.

Imperfect Paradise, by Dan Dembiczak. (Still 2.99?)

"After leaving countless plays by Dan Dembiczak in stitches, his debut book wasn't at all what I was expecting. He shows the breadth of his talent with this often heart-aching portrayal of a newlywed woman finally beginning to look at life through her own eyes. Not to mention painting an extremely clear picture of the beauty of the Big Island, and the beauty of the people who live there. A great read for any woman who has ever questioned her purpose or her resolve." -- Amazon reviewer

For thirty-two-year-old Sarah Chizeck, marriage was not an option, but an expectation. She was raised to believe that a woman's main focus is to get married and start a family, and she put everything else on hold to accomplish this goal.

So when she finally marries her boyfriend of five years, Sarah and her family are ecstatic. But underneath Sarah's smiles, something else is lurking.

Sarah's career and personal interests were not all she put on hold to pursue marriage. She also put her feelings on the backburner and buried her emotions. But when she reluctantly goes to Hawai'i for her honeymoon, these things come to the surface, and she is both pleased and alarmed by the sensory experiences she encounters.

Terrified by her attraction to a handsome young concierge, Sarah is forced to confront her new feelings, as well as what she previously ignored, and she ultimately comes to shocking revelations about her upbringing, marriage, and future.

Imperfect Paradise tells the compelling story of Sarah's internal awakening and delivers a powerful message about hope, happiness, and finding your place in the world. A classic romance with a contemporary twist, it is sure to appeal to fans of modern, liberating fiction.

Not Another Soldier, by Samantha Holt. (Still 3.99?)

"Amazing! Sienna is a strong, beautiful and loving women. She is a nurse and puts the well being of others before her self. She fights the temptation that is Nick, even after she gets a taste of what life with him would be like. Not Another Soldier is very well written, the characters are fun and keep your attention. I loved all of the twists and turns throughout the book and the ending had me smiling from ear to ear." -- Amazon reviewer


I've just buried my husband. I was going to divorce him and now he's dead.

After five years as a military wife, Sienna is moving on. She's keen to leave behind the misery of her marriage to Rob but for some reason the past won't let her go. It doesn't help that her closest friend, Nick, is also a soldier. Unfortunately Sienna is struggling to deny her attraction to the sexy soldier, even knowing there can be no future in it. When the injured soldier admits he wants her just as badly, and has always wanted her, the fight to control her feelings becomes harder.

And now she's learning things about her late husband that surprise even her. When the secrets of Rob's life come to light, Sienna finds herself involved with some very nasty people and Nick is determined to protect her, no matter what.

As the danger grows to both her heart and her life, Sienna needs to decide if it was the army that was the problem or her late husband. Is Nick worth the heartache of being a military spouse again? And will he be able to protect her from the ring of drug dealers slowly closing in?

Content warning: This book contains some adult scenes and coarse language.

Author's note: This had been updated to reflect that this is based on my experiences as a British military wife. International readers will find there are significant differences between the US and British military. I hope this doesn't detract from your enjoyment.

The Heartbreak Cafe (Lakeview #1), by Melissa Hill. (Still free?)

"Terrific story where the author gets us acquainted with several characters who eventually tie in to a central plot. As it takes place in Ireland, it reminded me of late author Maeve Binchy who utilized the same method of storytelling. Anyone familiar with Binchy's "Lilac Bus", "Taking Care of Frankie", etc, and who is sorely missing Ms. Binchy should definitely pick this gem up. You won't be disappointed." -- Amazon reviewer

From the #1 bestselling author of A GIFT FROM TIFFANY'S and THE CHARM BRACELET is the first in a series of novels featuring the pretty Irish tourist village of Lakeview.

When a baby is found on the doorstep of The Heartbreak Cafe in Lakeview, everyone asks - what kind of parent would abandon their child?

Jess feels increasingly left out as the only non-mum amongst her friends. Terrified she might lose them altogether, she embarks on becoming a mother too. But is she really ready?


Nina has come to Lakeview to live with her estranged father, Patrick after a bad break-up. But will she ever dare tell him about the secret she is concealing?


One thing's for sure: someone knows more than they're telling. And the truth won't stay hidden forever...
