Frosted Shadow, a Toni Diamond Mystery: Toni Diamond Mysteries, by Nancy Warren. (Still free?)

"Funny, engaging, fast-paced. I wasn't sure what to expect but kept turning the pages. After a while, I couldn't put it down. I loved the way the characters were presented. The story rolled quickly and I laughed aloud a couple of times. Looking forward to the next Toni Diamond novel. A good, fast read." -- Amazon reviewer

There's nothing pretty about murder.

Meet Toni Diamond, make up artist to middle America. She's got a nose for trouble and a passion for solving mysteries. Imagine Columbo in a lavender suit. She never met a woman who wouldn't look better with a little help from the Lady Bianca line of cosmetics. But don't be fooled by appearances. Underneath the fake diamonds and the big hair is a sharp brain and a keen eye that sees the details as well as the funny side of life. When a Lady Bianca sales rep is murdered at the annual convention in Dallas, Toni is the one who notices things that some people, like sexy Detective Luke Marciano, might easily miss. Only someone who understands as much about how to make appearances deceiving could see into the mind of this killer -- a murderer who wants to give Toni a permanent makeover. Into a dead woman.

At the sales convention, Toni has to deal with her arch rival Nicole Freedman, a woman who would stab Toni in the back if it would get her the coveted top sales award. She's got her own beauty consultants to encourage, her mother who's taken Dolly Parton as her pattern and her patron saint, her daughter Tiffany, who, at sixteen, is mortified by everything her mother does. Including breathing.

In this humorous, cozy mystery, complete with a wily and entertaining amateur female sleuth, a sexy police officer, a murder or two, a little comedy and some racy scenes, a suburban cosmetics sales woman matches wits with a fiendish murderer.

The Moonglow Cafe: A Paige MacKenzie Mystery, by Deborah Garner. (Still 2.99?)

"Great read! I enjoyed my first meeting with Paige MacKenzie. I was hooked from the very beginning and had to read it in one sitting! Enjoyable cozy set out west in a sleepy mining town. Learned about sapphire mining which was fun! Also enjoyed the characters, secret hidey holes and passage ways. The meals sounded yummy. It was a delightful read and I highly recommend it. I am going to read the first one in the series now and look forward to the next one." -- Amazon reviewer

New York reporter Paige MacKenzie has a hidden motive when she heads to the small town of Timberton, Montana. Assigned to research the area's unique Yogo sapphires for the Manhattan Post, she hopes to reconnect romantically with handsome cowboy Jake Norris. The local gem gallery offers the material needed for the article, but the discovery of an old diary, hidden inside the wall of a historic hotel, soon sends her on a detour into the underworld of art and deception.

Each of the town's residents holds a key to untangling more than one long-buried secret, from the hippie chick owner of a new age café to the mute homeless man in the town park. As the worlds of western art and sapphire mining collide, Paige finds herself juggling research, romance and danger. With stolen sapphires and shady characters thrown into the mix, will Paige escape the consequences of her own curiosity?

The Divorced Not Dead Workshop, by CeCe Osgood. (Still 0.99?)

Save $2 today on this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"An endearing story full of eccentrically comfortable characters, Ms. Osgood doesn't mock divorce, nor make excuses or point fingers. Almost all of her unique but completely believable individuals have reached a point in their post-married lives to know it's time to move on....Though the topic of divorcees taking back their lives is fairly common, this one uses a brilliant number of allusions to movies, music and oddball trivia to keep it interesting. The quirky cast blends learning and growth into an appealing cruise to Cabo San Lucas that one doesn't have to be divorced to enjoy!" -- Julie York for InD'tale magazine, April 2014

THE DIVORCED NOT DEAD WORKSHOP, a romantic comedy with a whopping side dish of chick lit, is a hilarious and touching look at re-entering the dating world after divorce.

Meet Dorsey Bing. She's been divorced for five years and was recently dumped by her mega-hot Brit boyfriend, Theo. Smart, funny and a wee bit angsty, Dorsey brainstorms about a dating workshop for divorced men. Too bad she’s an idea person with zero follow-through.

That all changes when her best friend Pilar, a feisty go-getter, opts to set up the workshop with herself in charge and Dorsey as her "go-fer.” But do things ever really work out as planned. No. No, they don’t.

A startling mishap, rebellious workshop attendees and the arrival of handsome but wily Finn Woodall soon send things topsy-turvy for Dorsey. Even more trouble arises with the unexpected re-appearance of Theo. Will Dorsey want him back or is she smitten with Finn who could possibly be a back-stabbing rat bastard? And with everything that's happened in the workshop will Dorsey face her biggest challenge to win the love, and life, she's always desired
