Murder at the Art & Craft Fair (Book 6 Dekker Cozy Mystery Series), by Steve Demaree. (Still free?)

"I really enjoyed the entire series, and the best part of this author is that you can read these novels in any order, something many authors don't think about. I especially liked him putting himself in a tiny 'cameo' part, which was humourous. I like the writing style, there are a few minor typos, but didn't detract from some fun reading. He doesn't spoil the mystery!" -- Amazon reviewer

In the sixth book in the series, only one thing can convince Lt. Dekker and Sgt. Murdock they need to attend the local art and craft fair. A woman. Actually two women. In the sixth book in the series, Murder at the Art & Craft Fair, the two homicide detectives realize that they would have been attending the event eventually, because before the weekend is over, one person is murdered. It is up to the two detectives to look at all the possible suspects, disgruntled customers and jealous vendors, to see who had both motive and opportunity to end the victim’s life, and then to make sure they have not overlooked anything or anyone.

TENDER DECEIT (Romantic Suspense Mystery Novel): First Love Series ~ Book 1, by H.Y. Hanna. (Still 0.99?)

"Very enjoyable! This is a romantic personal mystery: personal because it involves foul play against people close to Leah, and there is some romance involving Toran. This book isn't "explicit romance" (which seems to have come into vogue of late), and it works well. Ms. Hanna has done well with her "Honey" mysteries, and she's proving herself to be a good adult author as well." -- Amazon reviewer

* SPECIAL LAUNCH PRICE $0.99 FOR A LIMITED TIME*

Following her father's mysterious death in Singapore, Leah leaves her life in London and returns to the island that was her childhood home.

Was her father's death really an accident? Someone is out to silence Leah - and that someone might be the man she is rapidly falling in love with...again.

Fast-paced, action-packed romantic suspense filled with intrigue and sizzling tension - a perfect summer read!

Myself in Blue (Myself in Blue, #1), by Renata F. Barcelos. (Still 1.99?)

"Beautifully written! But the book is so much more than what I described. It is also a historical saga which explores life after World War II, and the Japanese internment camps that are such a dark and under-explored area of American history. It is clear that the author thoroughly researched the topic and is passionate about the subject. Myself in Blue is a beautifully written, sometimes funny and heartbreaking tale of love, and it teaches us that it's never too late to mend the past and build a new future." -- Amazon reviewer

Romance, redemption, and psychedelic rock in 1989.

Sunday Morning is nineteen and recently diagnosed with osteosarcoma. She finds it fair: a deathly cancer to pay for her sins.

The fourth of five daughters, Sunday could never overcome the jealousy she felt for her sisters, especially the youngest and her Rett Syndrome with all the attention she required. She knows her resentment and rebellion as a wayward teen brought tragedy to her family, but never learned exactly the extent. Self-exiled in Brazil living a hard life of penitence for five years, she finally feels it's possible to come back and try to mend things.

Scott Goodwin writes bestseller biographies and always dreamed of writing about his idol, Grandma's Eye's vocalist, Iris Morning. The singer and her husband, Douglas Oshiro, have been reclusive since 1984, when their famous psychedelic rock band announced a surprising halt. Scott is thrilled when Iris finally agrees to let him write the book and even more so when she explains why. She hopes the bio will help finding her daughter Sunday and rebuild her shattered family.

It is Sunday, however, who finds Scott. Still too mortified to face her family, she offers her story to Scott in exchange for inside information about them. Scott has no idea how intensely the deal will change their lives when he agrees.

Through her own family's history, from the first Oshiros and Mornings, WWII impact on her ancestors and the struggle to form the band despite Iris’ abusive stepfather—the chain of events that led to the band’s success, the birth of a new generation, and the night that changed everything—Scott will try to show Sunday that nobody is perfect, and perhaps everything happens for a reason.

Sunday and Scott may not have much time, with her diagnosis and the fact that she doesn't feel worthy of redemption, but he will not give up easily. Scott has become Sunday’s only link to the past, and perhaps her only chance to have a future.

21 Things You Should Give Up To Be Happy, by Alvin Huang. (Still 0.99?)

"I have read many self-help books but I think one of the most vital self-improvement message that you can take away with you from this book is that there is absolutely no reason for you to be unhappy! And this book serves a good purpose in reinforcing this. Yes, there may be a few things you have to do in order to be happy, but the journey will be worth it! Whether you're a student or working or retired, this is a good book to own as it contains the necessary steps for a happier life." -- Amazon reviewer

Everything You've Ever Been Taught About Happiness Is WRONG.

We've been raised on the idea that the more we have, the happier we'll be. So much so that most of us dedicate our lives to pursuing the wrong ideals in life. We end up thinking career success guarantees happiness, or hitting a specific goal might make us happy, or that happiness is based on external circumstance.

Sometimes, giving up is exactly what you need to do in order to find happiness in your life.

"21 Things To Give Up To Be Happy" reveals the secrets to lifelong happiness. Comprising of 21 essential lessons, this book will teach you just why the old adage "less is more" couldn't be more apt to your pursuit of happiness.

Here are just some of what you'll find in "21 Things To Give Up To Be Happy":

Give Up Caring About What People Think About You
• Learn why seeking the approval of others may never get you the happiness you seek
• How it really doesn't matter what anyone else thinks when you're an expert at what you do

Give Up Trying To Please Everyone Else Besides You
• Why saying "No" is not the end of the world (so many people are afraid of disagreeing because they're afraid of what might happen... but sometimes "No" is the best answer you can give)
• How being true to what you're great at will do more for your happiness than trying to be what others want you to be

Give Up Complaining
• Complaining is like being on a treadmill: It gets you nowhere! Learn why venting has very limited effectiveness compared to working on changing your circumstance (and how you can do exactly that... change circumstances).
• How focusing on what you have can overcome your perceived shortcomings (hint: the power of gratitude can work miracles...)

Give Up Making Excuses
• Excuses can extinguish unlimited potential that you might not have been aware of. Learn how giving up excuses might just put you back in control of your own life.
• Why trusting yourself can turn "I can't" into "I can" (once you get the hang of this, there's literally nothing you cannot achieve in life)

Give Up The Aimless Wander
• The secret to finding your true path in life (not knowing this secret is the #1 reason why so many people are unhappy...)
• How mapping your life goals can steer you in the right direction

And much, much more!
