A Temporary Ghost: A Mystery Set In Provence (Georgia Lee Maxwell #2) (The Georgia Lee Maxwell Series), by Michaela Thompson. (Still free?)

"The vividness in the location as she surrounds us with the flowers and old buildings. The quaintness of the beautiful towns and surrounding landscaping brings you to the beauty of Provence. All this making you friends with the characters and joining them in France. Georgia Lee soon becomes embroiled in the mystery surrounding the death of Vivian's husband to the point of her life becoming endangered. It just kept getting more and more intense!" -- Amazon reviewer

A GHOST-WRITING GIG IN PROVENCE--SHE'S LIVING THE DREAM! UNTIL THE KILLING STARTS...

In journalist Georgia Lee Maxwell's second adventure, she leaves her new home in Paris for Provence, where she's been offered a lucrative ghost-writing job. But her co-author, suspected murderess Vivien Howard, the widow of a wealthy New York financier, seems strangely uninterested in writing her memoir Vivian was widely believed to have murdered her husband but was never charged with the crime, and now she promises to tell all.

Amid the beauties of Provence, settled in, a charming renovated farmhouse, Georgia Lee finds a household full of ill-feeling, not to mention suspicious characters -- Vivien's handsome artist lover, Ross; her neurotic daughter, Blanche; and Pedro Ruiz, a mysterious housekeeper who has accompanied them from New York.

Frustrated by Vivien's lack of cooperation and unnerved by threatening letters, Georgia Lee soon realizes that she has become a player in a more dangerous game than she could have imagined. And then there's another murder.

When Georgia Lee transplanted herself from Florida to Paris in Magic Mirror, Publishers Weekly applauded: "The debut of Georgia Lee Maxwell is an all-around delight. . . a brisk and witty book full of sharply unexpected events and packed with wonderfully robust characters.

Travels with Gannon and Wyatt: Great Bear Rainforest, by Patti Wheeler. (Still 0.99?)

"Exciting, information adventure/mystery! While the book is fictional, it isn't just a novel, in the sense of the Hardy Boys books or Tom Swift books. These are fictional travel journals. Lots of exciting things happen, but they are recounted in the same diary form that you would expect from any actual explorer/adventurer. This book... has more action, and feels a little more like a boys-own adventure." -- Amazon reviewer

Gannon and Wyatt can’t wait to trek into the Great Bear Rainforest in search of the mythical spirit bear, but surviving in this unforgiving wilderness proves more challenging than they could have ever imagined. When members of the expedition go missing, the brothers bravely set out on a search-and-rescue mission. Soon they find themselves lost in a forest teeming with grizzlies, wolves and mysterious gunmen. Guided by the wisdom of the First Nation people, the Gannon and Wyatt uncover a sinister plot and must risk everything to save those who are missing and restore balance to the Great Bear.

In the tradition of the historic journals kept by explorers such as Lewis and Clark, Dr. David Livingstone, and Captain James Cook comes the adventure series Travels with Gannon and Wyatt. From Africa to the South Pacific, these twin brothers have traveled the world. You never know what they will encounter as they venture into the wild, but one thing is certain⎯wherever Gannon and Wyatt go, adventure is their constant companion.

You can find Gannon and Wyatt’s blog, photographs, and video footage from their real-life expeditions at travelswithgannonandwyatt.com.

Interred (Chronicles of the Interred, Book One), by Marilyn Almodovar. (Still 0.99?)

I like that it's a clean book which makes it appropriate for teens as well as adults to enjoy. Interred is an action-packed adventure filled with mystery a little romance and whole lot of magic. I found the story so captivating I had a hard time putting the book down I just had to know what was going to happen to Baxter next." -- Amazon reviewer
