"I really liked the way the author told the story from the two different points of view. Also being set in Greece was a totally different perspective than any other WWII story I had read. Good, fast read!" -- Amazon reviewer

Ava Lancet has lost her job, her marriage, and her baby when she discovers she has inherited her grandmother’s dilapidated farmhouse in a tiny village in central Greece. With the kind of emotional impulsiveness that has frustrated her stony-faced husband for years, she decides to move there and recover from life’s sorrows.

When an elderly woman in the village mistakes Ava for her grandmother, telling her, with tears trickling down her face, that she is sorry, Ava is both touched and intrigued. What is the woman sorry for, and what secrets did her grandmother keep? Soon Ava is discovering the surprising threads of her grandmother’s life, including her part in the local Resistance during World War Two and a forbidden love affair with a British SOE agent.

Spanning three generations and exploring the lives of two very different and yet surprisingly similar women, The Other Side of The Bridge will remind you how a fragile hope can spring from both tragedy and despair. Written by USA Today bestselling author Kate Hewitt, writing as Katharine Swartz.

Ratcatcher (John Purkiss Book 1), by Tim Stevens. (Still free?)

"Superb spy thriller...The prose is so vivid you can almost feel the action as it takes place..." -- Jeremy Duns, author of The Dark Chronicles

"A high octane, fast-paced spy thriller... superb and captivating story... a great, heart-pounding read!" -- James Masters, Goodreads reviewer

The police have Internal Affairs departments. British Intelligence has John Purkiss, the Ratcatcher.
 Purkiss's job is straightforward. Track down agents of the intelligence services who are taking kickbacks, committing crimes, or otherwise abusing their positions. And bring them to justice.Straightforward doesn't mean easy...
After a renegade British former spymaster, Fallon, is sighted in the Baltic city of Tallinn on the eve of a historic summit meeting between the Russian and Estonian presidents, Purkiss is despatched to investigate, and uncovers a conspiracy that threatens to tear Europe, and the world, apart.

But Purkiss has personal reasons for going after Fallon. Four years ago, Fallon was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of Purkiss's fiancée, a murder Purkiss himself witnessed.
Now, in an atmosphere of treachery and sudden violence, as the countdown begins to a potentially catastrophic conflict between Russia and the West, Purkiss must keep his desire for revenge under control for the sake of the world's - and his own - survival.

Described in Amazon reviews as a "cracker of a spy thriller" with "superbly choreographed action scenes" that "leave you feeling almost dizzy", RATCATCHER is both an adrenaline-fuelled action adventure novel and a hardboiled mystery story which exposes the world of the spy, in which few motives and actions are purely black or white.

419 pages, with a 4.2-star rating from 199 reviews.

Financing Your Life: A Novel: The story of four families who took their financial lives out of the red and into the black., by Dennis Postema. (Still 0.99?)

"Helpful! I was loaned this by a friend and read it easily in one sitting. It's well written and captures your attention with 'real-life' stories, not just lectures. It goes back and forth from one family to another, describing some difficult financial times and what they do to get through them. I immediately passed this book on to my 21 year old son to read since he's just now starting out on his own. I'm hoping by reading something that isn't just a boring "how to do your finances" book will resonate for him and help him avoid some financial pitfalls. Highly recommended." -- Amazon reviewer

A novel that follows four families as they struggle to overcome debt, spending addiction,
and unrealistic expectations in order to create financial security.

McKenna, a single mom of two boys, works hard every day as a waitress, but she can’t make
ends meet. When her ex-husband has an accident that prevents him from paying child support,
the walls of poverty slowly close in.

Toby and Shannon, two professionals battling a layoff and personal spending demons, must
find a way to work together with honesty—a proposition that’s tougher than Toby expected.

Blake and Christine, a newlywed couple in a hurry to start living the good life, regardless of their
ability to afford it, work together to figure out how to get the house they dream of while starting a
family and battling depression.

Marcie and Kurt, two young parents struggling to keep up in an image-obsessed world, must
decide whether “fitting in” is more important than financial security.

253 pages, with a 5.0-star rating from 22 reviews.

The Last Firewall, by William Hertling. (Still free?)

"Awesome near-term science fiction." -- Brad Feld, Foundry Group managing director

"An insightful and adrenaline-inducing tale of what humanity could become and the machines we could spawn." -- Ben Huh, CEO of Cheezburger

In the year 2035, robots, artificial intelligences, and neural implants have become commonplace. The Institute for Ethics keeps the peace, using social reputation to ensure that robots and humans don't harm society or each other. But a powerful AI named Adam has found a way around the restrictions.

Catherine Matthews, nineteen years old, has a unique gift: the ability to manipulate the net with her neural implant. Yanked out of her perfectly ordinary life, Catherine becomes the last firewall standing between Adam and his quest for world domination.
