Mangroves and Monsters (The Stolen Nickel Series Book 2), by Sharon Cupp Pennington. (Still $0.99?)

"Sharon Pennington's newest novel whisks the reader to a tropical paradise where the hunt for lost love and a maniacal killer races to a page turning climax. Old love rekindles, new love sparks, and ever-present danger lurks in the shadows. Well developed characters and palpable tension make Mangroves and Monsters a must read." -- Amazon reviewer

In this sequel to Hoodoo Money, Charlie Cooper is a reluctant teacher by day and broken-hearted wanderer by night, and a man desperately in love with a dead woman. But is Angeline St. Cyr really dead? The supermodel fell victim to an auto-pedestrian accident in New Orleans. Police reports and medical records substantiate the severity of her injuries. Cosmetics mogul Mathieu Fournier, her former boss, orchestrated a cremation and memorial service. The paparazzi swarmed celebrity attendees. Fans mourned. But Cooper remains convinced Angeline's death was an elaborate scheme Fournier sold to the world. He isn't buying the old Frenchman's statement, nor is his heart. A tenuous lead draws him to the Caribbean island of Jacqueme Dominique. Only Cooper isn't alone in his quest. By chasing his dream of rekindled love, he becomes embroiled in murder, treachery and abduction at the hands of his old nemesis Willem Voorhees - a merciless killer. For five long years Cooper's love survived while he searched for Angeline. Will finding her cost him his life?

The Amish Spaceman, by Stephen Colegrove. (Still free?)

"What a delightful hilarious book. I had so much fun reading it. The characters are too funny and the dialect is brilliant. It is written very well and easy to follow, if you can keep a straight face. It grabs you from start and does not let you go. It made me laugh and smile. It is one of the best books I have read. The humor is way out there and in your face at the same time. The author Steven Colegrove is brilliant and I love his imagination." -- Amazon reviewer

A comical road trip across the U.S. with a cast of surreal characters including a failed motivational speaker, a Kamchatkan runaway bride, a sock-crazed mafia boss, and cross-dressing parents.

Unsatisfied with the daily grind of a Silicon Valley business coach and life consultant, Dean Cook weasels his way into a once-in-a-lifetime chance for fame and fortune: a speaking slot at the National Motivational Speaker's Conference in West Virginia. Three days before the conference, Dean's girlfriend breaks up with him and destroys his passport and identification cards. Dean's flight plans are now scrapped, and he's forced to steal a second hand ambulance. On the high-speed drive across the country he meets a Russian girl on the run from her fiance, a brutal and eccentric collector of women's hosiery. Dean and the girl escape from a series of catastrophes including a shotgun wedding in Reno, Sea MonkeysTM in the Great Salt Lake, and parachuting from a B-25 bomber over Kentucky.

Scrambling to catch up to Dean are his gender-bending parents, who see this as the last chance to throw their son a party that doesn't end in complete disaster. Because, after all, it's Dean's birthday.
