ONCE UPON A LIE (A Fitzjohn Mystery), by Jill Paterson. (Still free?)

"Set in Australia, this is another murder mystery that Chief Inspector Fitzjohn must solve. Lots of twists and turns. It begins with the murder of a man on a yacht but is complicated by the previous murder of his sister. Good, engaging story. Want more of Fitzjohn." -- Amazon reviewer

Little did, businessman and entrepreneur, Michael Rossi know that the telephone call he answered on that fateful Friday would be the catalyst for his death, and the subsequent recovery of his body from the waters of Sydney Harbour the following morning.

Recalled from leave to take on the case, Detective Chief Inspector Fitzjohn confronts the first of many puzzles; how Rossi spent the unaccountable hours before he died. This leads him on a paper-trail into a tangled web of deception, jealousy and greed that unravels the mystery surrounding Michael's death.
 

Unaware of her nephew's fate, Esme Timmons retires for the evening, unsuspecting of the events about to unfold; events that will, ultimately, expose a grim lie, buried deep in the past.

Tobacco Sticks (Southern Mysteries), by William Elliott Hazelgrove. (Still 2.99?)

"Tobacco Sticks was more like Faulkner to me than Harper Lee. The author has charted out his own terriotry and the story is compelling and well written. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a book so much and was reluctant to finish. It is the story of a lawyer who does the hard thing and that is a rare story. I think readers will discover this author soon." -- Amazon reviewer

A Great Summer read and a real To Kill A Mockingbird story. Tobacco Sticks takes us back to the Southern town of Richmond in 1946. It is the story of a Senatorial campaign, the rise of the unions, and Burke Hartwell, a lawyer and civic minded man who must choose between two worlds. The war is ending and for Lee Hartwell and his family it bodes the end of something they won't understand until it is too late.

"Explosive racial tension, betrayal and murder, difficult ethical and social decisions, first love and a dramatic denouemont in a sweaty Virginia courtroom are skillfully entwined in this haunting tale which has all the characteristics of a good summer read." Starred Review Publishers Weekly
Book of the Month Club Selection

"The summer my brother came home from the war was so hot they had to repave the soft tar of Hermitage Street twice. I remember watching the crews, their white t-shirts glowing in the July night with the gravel smoke dancing white under a low moon. It was the last war summer and we received a telegram saying Lucas has been wounded. First we thought he had been shot in the leg, then it became the foot."
Tobacco Sticks

"American Fiction is not dead, Hazelgrove has skillfully revived it with his second novel, Tobacco Sticks. Highly recommended. "

Sihpromatum - I Grew my Boobs in China, by Savannah Grace. (Still 0.99?)

"Sihpromatum is defined as a blessing that first appears to be a curse. Vividly written in colorful detail, Savannah's adventure is unparalleled by anything that could have been written in fiction. Sharing her emotions, along with her observations, the reader has an opportunity to watch Savannah mature and gain a great deal of depth to her character. It is also her journey of discovery from within. There are many lessons to be learned from Savannah's adventure." -- Reader Views

Sihpromatum (Sip-row-may-tum) is a memoir series of one family's incredible four-year, 80 country backpacking adventure. The first installment, I Grew My Boobs in China, takes the reader through China and Mongolia.
 

In 2005, 14-year-old Savannah Grace's perfect world is shattered when her mother unexpectedly announces that she, her mother (45), brother (25) and sister (17) would soon embark on a trip around the world.
 

This is a tale of feminine maturation -- of Savannah's metamorphosis from ingenue to woman-of-the-world. Nibbling roasted duck tongues in China and being stranded in Mongolia's Gobi Desert are just two experiences that contribute to Savannah's exploration of new cultures and to the process of adapting to the world around her.

Remember Me, by Danice Allen. (Still free?)

"Tenderness, passion, love/hate relationship. It was a great book full of twists and turns and romance. Love the ending with a little mystery." -- Amazon reviewer
