Under the Sassafras (A Bon Amie Novel), by Hattie Mae. (Still free?)

"Like a slice of molasses and sweet potato pie, this novel is sweet and filled with cajun flavor. Hattie Mae has created delightful characters and a wonderful story." -- Jane Myers Perrine, Award-Winning Author

With Under the Sassafras, award-winning author Hattie Mae introduces you to Bon Amie, a small town in the bayous of Louisiana full of delightful characters and sweet romance.

Nestled between the Atchafalaya Basin and Sugar Island lies Bon Amie, a friendly, quiet town, where nothing exciting ever happens. Until Joelette Benoit’s two sons find a man washed up in the murky water at the edge of the swamp.

Joelette Benoit, a widowed single mother, has sworn to never believe the promises of another sweet talking man. Fiercely independent and determined, she’s hidden away her heart, while struggling to provide for her two sons and lively mother-in-law. She swears the stranger will stay one night, and one night only, until she discovers he has no memory. Now duty-bound to aid him, Joelette decides to offer him a place to heal in exchange for his labor.

Against the colorful backdrop of life on the bayou, she watches as he immerses himself not only in her family but also in her town. She can do little to prevent her sons from bonding with the only man they’ve come to trust since the death of their father. Though she, too, is drawn to his kindness and vulnerability, she will not risk the heart of her family because without a past, this man cannot promise a future. But when his memory returns and he realizes he has blood on his hands, he knows he has unfinished business to attend to before he can claim the family he has grown to love.

Fancy Gap, by C. David Gelly. (Still 0.99?)

Save $7 on today's Kindle Countdown Deal!

"Excellent read! This book grabbed me instantly and I could not put it down. I really like the layout as it moves the story forward quite nicely. I enjoyed the plot and characters were fun to get to know. I particularly like the main characters Quinn & Louisa. It was very nice to read a story evolving around 60 year olds living life to their fullest. The author does a great job bringing Fancy Gap and the chateau to the reader. I hope to see more books by C. David Gelly. His style is fresh." -- Amazon reviewer

For travelers along the Blue Ridge Parkway at Fancy Gap, the fog often hangs like an azure dreamscape over the rolling green hills. But when a madman abducts two children and disappears into the wisps with the young brother and sister, the landscape becomes a nightmare for the children’s parents and local residents. The county sheriff remains under intense pressure to track down the predator, yet all leads come up cold and the officers are sickened when a horrific act at the Devil’s Den challenges them all to act quickly. To solve the crime before the Labor Day Flea Market and Gun Show, sleuths Quinn McSpain and Louisa Hawke are drawn into the mystery and head into the hills and hollows of the southwestern Virginia mountains.

Quinn is an ex-corporate security operative, and until recently, Louisa headed the FBI criminal division. The athletic, hard-bodied sexagenarian twosome has been experiencing a blossoming romance on kayaking trips and mountain climbing excursions as well as hard mountain bike rides. Now their sleuthing skills and physical prowess will be put to the test as they must capture the killer before the unthinkable takes place.


An adrenaline-producing adventure to capture a demented killer through the Blue Ridge Mountains, C. David Gelly’s mystery thriller is steeped in the lore and legends of Virginia’s upland country. It is the first in a series of five “Gap” novels that will take the reader through the vistas and hairpin turns of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Parkway and mountains.

Cadets, by Edward Miller. (Still 0.99?)

Check out "Cadets," from the co-author of the acclaimed "The Kronos Interference."

"With clever ideas and agile prose, Miller builds a world reminiscent of Star Trek: Ryan is a rebellious young Captain Kirk who knows that "sometimes going by the book [isn't] the best course to take." Amid the pop-culture references to Star Wars and comic books, Miller's believable, motivated characters shine, as Ryan's brashness conflicts with Amanda's search for peaceful solutions. A tightly written, fast-paced prose supernova." -- KIRKUS REVIEW

On a remote training planet, hotshot Earth Defense Fleet Cadet Ryan Thompson and his peace loving ex-girlfriend Amanda Williamson can't agree on anything. But when news comes of an alien invasion of Earth--the first in human history--they are thrown together on a deadly, unauthorized mission to face an unknown enemy. What they find is beyond their wildest expectations. A discovery that changes everything they thought they knew...about their hostile adversaries--and mankind.

With a trail of riddles and mysteries, epic space battles and journeys to the far corners of Earth, this "Star Trek meets Indiana Jones" Sci-Fi Adventure from Author Edward Miller should appeal to fans of Sci-Fi Space Operas and Young Adult Science Fiction. Edward Miller's debut novel with co-author J.B. Manas, The Kronos Interference, was named to Kirkus reviews best of 2012 and received a Starred Review from Kirkus, which called it "Impressively original" and a "Tour De Force."

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

"You could describe the books in this series as top flight reality-adventure-fiction. The books are composed of alternating travel journal entries authored by twin brothers Gannon and Wyatt. Gannon is a friendly loosey-goosey kind of guy and Wyatt is a more buttoned-down and serious sort. 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. The two brothers have distinct voices and engaging personalities. The writing is a bit advanced to be from teenage journalists, but the author carefully balances creating authentic voices with writing at a high quality level. The result is that the boys feel authentic, but the writing is professional." -- Amazon reviewer

Gannon and Wyatt might make the discovery of a lifetime⎯if they can outlast danger in the land of the pharaohs!

After winning a prestigious fellowship from the Youth Exploration Society, Gannon and Wyatt set off on a journey to Egypt. There they study with world-renowned archeologist Dr. Mohammed Aziz, joining him on a quest to find the long lost tomb of the Pharaoh Cleopatra, rumored to hold priceless treasures and secret scrolls containing answers to some of ancient Egypt’s greatest mysteries. But Gannon and Wyatt aren’t the only ones interested in Cleopatra’s secrets. Ruthless tomb robbers are hot on their heels, and the brothers must brave venomous snakes, deadly booby traps, and ancient curses as they find themselves on the verge of a magnificent discovery that could rewrite history.

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 & 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 things 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.
