IN BOOK 1 of The Housewife Assassin's Handbook series:

Every desperate housewife wants an alias. Donna Stone has one...and it happens to be government-sanctioned. She earned it the hard way: her husband was killed the day she delivered her third child. To avenge his death, she leads a secret life - as an assassin.


But espionage makes for strange bedfellows - and brings new meaning to that old adage, "Honey, I'm home..."

Inhuman (Post-Human Series), by David Simpson. (Still 0.99?)

Save $2 on this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"What makes us human? Sometimes, perhaps even often, topics with significant ethical impact are best explored through the medium of the novel. As medical technologies improve the ability for damaged human bodies to be repaired and even augmented, we begin to wonder are we still human... really? Even more interesting is the question, is it possible to create an artificial body to contain a human mind? Would it be human? David Simpson's Post-Human series confronts these questions and more in a fast paced exciting and quite enjoyable fashion." -- Amazon reviewer

Appraisal for Murder (Jolie Gentil Cozy Mystery Series), by Elaine L. Orr. (Still 0.99?)

"APPRAISAL FOR MURDER is a snappy read, with all the ingredients of a first class mystery including a sleuth who will engage your heart and mind. ...If you seek a new mystery series with a protagonist who will win your heart, a story that will keep you turning pages, APPRAISAL FOR MURDER is for you." -- LL Book Reviews

If your name translates to "pretty nice" in French, you've probably gotten used to teasing. It doesn't prepare you to find out that your soon-to-be-ex-husband has a gambling problem, raided your assets, and embezzled from his bank. Jolie Gentil moves to Great Aunt Madge's bed and breakfast at the Jersey shore, taking her cat Jazz, and joining Madge's pair of prune-eating dogs. Jolie does not view this as a retreat, just a smart change. She had no idea her life was about to get even more complicated.

Jolie settles into the rhythm of late fall in a beach town and finds a work as a real estate appraiser with Aunt Madge's friend Harry Steele. But a low-life named Joe Pedone demands that Jolie repay some of her husband's gambling debts and she runs into Michael Riordan, her high school crush -- she's not sure which one is more trouble. Michael's good-looking but arrogant, and when she appraises his mother's house and finds Mrs. Riordan dead in bed she's not sure what to think.

At the Riordan home after the funeral, Jolie becomes begins to think that Aunt Madge is right -- Michael couldn't have murdered his mother. The police disagree. His mother's death leaves him as owner of the house, adding greatly to the wealth of the estate he is to inherit. After the funeral they arrest Michael.

Soon, the mundane work of appraising real estate and dodging suggestions that she go to the 10-year high school reunion become mixed with calls from reporters, scary suggestions from Pedone, and requests that she help the local busybody with First Presbyterian's social services work. Jolie also runs into Scoobie, the high school friend she hung out with most. With his blue jeans and longer hair, he's the antithesis of oil company executive Michael, and much easier to be with. His haunting poetry reflects how different his life has been since Jolie knew him.

Scoobie cuts Michael no slack. Still, with Aunt Madge upset that her late best friend's son stands accused of murder, Jolie looks for indications he's not guilty. Michael, out on bond, insists that Jolie leave his defense to his lawyer. If only she could.

Jolie takes Aunt Madge's dogs for a run on the boardwalk and runs into Pedone, who has Jolie's roughed-up ex-husband, Robby, in tow. Pedone wants his money, but the exuberant dogs call attention to Pedone's threats, so the thug leaves Robby with Jolie and Scoobie. He warns he'll be back.

Jolie balances her fear of Pedone, conviction that Michael is innocent, and sometimes uneasy friendship with Scoobie. Her growing list of other possible murder suspects includes Michael's soon-to-be-ex wife and a couple other beneficiaries of Mrs. Riordan's will. Those suspicions don't include Scoobie, but he makes it to the police department's list. Jolie plots other ways to prove both friends innocent. But will Pedone's plans leave Jolie alive to find the truth?

Edgewood (Edgewood Series), by Karen McQuestion. (Still free?)

"Not usually a YA reader either, but Edgewood doesn't have a YA feel to it. The characters have depth and the story is magnetic. McQuestion's writing is smooth and seamless. The teaser-and change in character perspective-is great. Edgewood is a terrific beginning to this series." -- Amazon reviewer

"An amazing book that will have readers eagerly turning pages" -- EDGEWOOD is a thrill ride with heart."

"I devoured it in one sitting!" New York Times Bestselling Author Lesley Kagen.

 

From bestselling author Karen McQuestion--a brand new, spellbinding novel. Wandering the dark streets at night is Russ Becker's way of dealing with his relentless insomnia and the angst of life. But that changes forever the night he witnesses a strange astronomical event, then discovers he's developed incredible superpowers.

And he's not alone. Three others in his town--sexy Mallory, arrogant Jameson, and mysterious Nadia--have had the same experience and acquired intriguing powers of their own. As if Mallory isn't special enough with her good looks and high IQ, now she can control peoples' minds. Jameson thinks he's the coolest because he moves objects with his thoughts, and shy Nadia struggles to understand her new empathic abilities.

At first the four secretly relish their newfound gifts while keeping them hidden. However, things get serious when they learn they're being hunted by an organization that wants them for its own nefarious purposes. Russ has always picked his battles wisely, but when the bad guys threaten his family, they're about to find out they messed with the wrong teens. What transpires will change all of them in ways they never imagined.
