Murder at Cold Creek College (Cold Creek #1), by Christa Nardi. (Still 2.99?)

"This first in a new cozy mystery series was a delightful read. The leisurely pace let us get to know our protagonist and her colleagues. Since the victim was such a womanizer, there are plenty of suspects. The story was well-plotted and the twists and turns the story takes make it a very enjoyable read. While not a detective, Sheridan’s background is perfect for figuring out the puzzle pieces of this murder. I am looking forward to reading more books in this charming series." -- Amazon reviewer

Sheridan Hendley is a professor and psychologist, not a sleuth. When her colleague at Cold Creek College, Adam Millberg, is murdered, she is charged with helping the Detective assigned to the case. Immediately, her good friend becomes the prime suspect and Sheridan is motivated to help solve the case and prove Kim isn’t guilty. It also becomes apparent that Sheridan is attracted to the handsome Detective. As Sheridan tries to implement the crisis plan on campus and connect all the people in Adam’s life, she finds out that many women have a motive for Adam’s murder. Slashed tires are the first indication that Sheridan’s involvement is obviously making someone nervous.

The Forbidden Army (The League of Planets Adventure Book 1), by Henrik Rohdin. (Still 2.99?)

"The Forbidden Army is a text that calls to mind, in its gritty settings, everything from "Blade Runner" to more recent cinematic versions of earth's encounters with aliens. The plot leaves a slight taste of Film Noir in my mouth since both main characters are pursuing intergalactic terrorists/criminals and they are doing so in the tried and true manner of detectives everywhere despite their military training. The fun here is in observing how well this witches brew of genres and sub genres manages to stand on its own, in a refreshing way that goes way beyond being merely derivative. A joy to read." -- Amazon reviewer

For fifty years the Human Alliance and the Krokator Star Empire have been locked in a cold war, neither side willing to return to the open conflict that raged for centuries. Though uneasy, the peace has been amicably maintained--until terrorist attacks against both powers, leaving the Alliance's capital shattered and the Emperor dead, threaten to reignite hostilities.

From the Alliance, the task of hunting down the perpetrators falls to intelligence officer Major John Gresham, whose background offers not only insight into galactic terror cells but also anonymous access to the labyrinthine defense establishment. The Empire sends Akgu Zurra, unquestioningly loyal and determined to hunt down those who murdered his sovereign. Their investigations lead in the same direction, forcing the two into unwelcome cooperation as they try to disrupt the network of their common enemy.

But that enemy, known only as the Forbidden Army, isn't just a well-organized group of malcontents from the alien slums - they enjoy resources that suggest their funding comes from connected insiders on both sides. Gresham and Zurra may distrust each other, but justice means exposing powerful figures as traitors and the attacks as part of a broader plot to destabilize the galactic order. If those traitors can't render the investigators ineffective, they'll settle for dead.

The League of Planets Adventure:

BOOK ONE: The Forbidden Army
BOOK TWO: Thus Spoke the Dragon
BOOK THREE: Servants of the Empire

He's her best friend's older brother

Twenty-four year old Troublemaker Extraordinaire, Melanie Ann Smith, isn't asking for much out of life: a house without wheels, to travel further than her home state and her best friend's older brother, Carter Ambrose. Only three things stand in her way: juggling all of her odd jobs, keeping her daddy from gambling away all of their money and getting Carter to see her as a woman.

She is the one woman who's off-limits...

NASCAR racer, Carter Ambrose, has finally decided to take his doctor's advice and find a new occupation before another wreck on the track kills him. Only his doctor hadn't counted on his little sister's best friend, Melanie Ann Smith, crashing his weeks of solitude with her short skirts and platform heels. And that's not the least of his problems. His mother has decided that she wants grandchildren and the only woman that's good enough for the job-his ex-fiance.

Soon Melanie and Carter agree to a temporary relationship. One with benefits that is mutually satisfying in every way, or so each believes. And just when they are ready admit their feelings, family secrets are exposed, threatening Melanie and Carter's fragile relationship.

Will Carter risk it all for love, or will Melanie be left holding the trophy for second place?
