Preacher's Daughter, The (Annie's People Book #1) (Annie's People), by Beverly Lewis. (Still free?)

"Sweet and interesting tale. New York Times bestselling author Beverly Lewis has made a name for herself exploring the lives of Amish women, and in THE PREACHER'S DAUGHTER, the first installment of her Annie's People series, she shows why she's become one of inspirational fiction's queens of the gentle read." -- Amazon reviewer

Annie's People Book 1- A new series from The New York Times bestselling author of the ABRAM'S DAUGHTERS series! The Preacher's Daughter begins a remarkable journey of heartache and homespun delight--a series readers will find impossible to forget. Paradise, Pennsylvania, is likened to a little slice of heaven on earth...but for Annie Zook--the preacher's eldest daughter--it seems like a dead-end street. She is expected to join the Amish church, but at 20 she is "still deciding." Because of the strict rules that guide the Plain community, she must continually squelch her artistic passion, although it has become her solace. In her signature style, with character depth and unexpected plot twists, beloved novelist Beverly Lewis once again opens the door to the world of the Amish.

Save 70% today on this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"The story line was the first thing to grab me... William Brown did an excellent job of pulling me in and keeping my attention... There wasn't a rest ... no down time. It was constant action and suspense." -- Melissa, The Sunday Book Review

Pete Talbott is a harried Boston computer wonk still grieving over the death of his wife when he finds himself at the wrong end of Gino Parini's .45 reading his own obituary, torn from the morning newspaper. Talbott figures it is all a big mistake, until Parini shows him his wife's obituary too; and this is a mystery that Talbott can't leave well-enough alone. Someone with a scalpel and an embalming table is planting bodies under other people's names. Sandy Kasmarek runs an art gallery on Chicago's stylish North Michigan Avenue, and it appears that her late-husband is also one of them. With a photographer's eye, the quick feet of a black belt, and fingers that can hot-wire a car in seconds, she has the skill set you wouldn't expect from a good Chicago catholic-school girl. Coupled with Pete in this thriller novel, they bring enough action and adventure, romance, thrills, and stark terror that even the Undertaker might be in trouble. A Witness Protection shell game, more Mafia crime, or just another FBI murder mystery? From a funeral home in Indiana, to car chases on the Dan Ryan, snipers in Washington Square, sleazy lawyers, corrupt County sheriffs, a bloody Back Bay townhouse, the FBI, and Mafia hit men, the Undertaker is a non-stop suspense thriller, because if Pete and Sandy can't stop them, they know they will be next on the Undertaker's list.

If you like good fiction books, put this new fast-moving, action adventure mystery thriller in your Cart. It is from the author of Amongst My Enemies, Thursday at Noon, Winner Lose All, and Aim True, My Brothers, and is also available in Audio Book from Audible and Amazon. Enjoy!

Across Great Divides, by Monique Roy. (Still 0.99?)

"Across Great divides connects two of the 20th centuries great travesties: the Nazi occupation of Europe and the system called Apartheid in South Africa. Through the eyes of one families life story and trials here is a well written and colorful historical novel with abundant detail and enough passion to drive one's emotions against all totalitarian systems. A great novel that has a good pace and much enlightenment of these two oppressive systems with the added context of a family forced into unwanted situations." -- Amazon reviewer

Across Great Divides is a timeless story of the upheavals of war, the power of family, and the resiliency of human spirit. When Hitler came to power in 1933, one Jewish family refused to be destroyed and defied the Nazis only to come up against another struggle—confronting apartheid in South Africa.

Sixteen-year-old Eva and her twin sister, Inge, witness their lives in Berlin change before their eyes. Their best friend, Trudy, betrays them when she becomes a member of the Hitler Youth. A valuable family heirloom, a beautiful emerald and diamond pendant necklace, is confiscated by the Nazis as they continue to harass Jewish families and businesses.

Their younger brother, Max, a member of the underground resistance, sees even greater danger ahead. Their father, Oskar, a diamond merchant with a thriving business, refuses to leave his beloved Germany and believes Hitler will eventually fail. Their mother, Helene, the elegant matriarch of the family, holds her family together.

The family is conflicted whether they should leave home. But after the devastation of Kristallnacht in 1938, they finally flee Germany with the help of the underground resistance after hiding many diamonds. They seek refuge in Antwerp, but war follows them as Belgium is occupied by the Germans.

A young German man, a nun, a countess conspiring against the Nazis, and a winegrower secretly hiding Jewish children, help them to escape Europe. They hike over the Pyrenees Mountains while eluding German patrols and Spanish informers. Then, they spend agonizing days on a ship bound for Rio de Janeiro that is targeted by a German U-boat. As Rio’s diamond business is corrupt, they decide to go to South Africa, another diamond market.

In Cape Town, Eva encounters an impoverished colored woman, Zoe, who is in need of work. The family hires Zoe as their maid and shields her and her daughter, Zola, from the dangers they face in the slums of District Six and from the horrors of apartheid, which are all too reminiscent of Nazi Germany.

But, when Max gets into trouble with the South African police over his participation in an anti-apartheid march, will he be subject to imprisonment?

In a thrilling conclusion, the family comes to terms with the evils of society, both in their memories and current situation in South Africa.

Playing with Poison: A Humorous and Romantic Cozy (Cue Ball Mysteries Book 1), by Cindy Blackburn. (Still free?)

"If you like mysteries and you like fun, you will love Playing with Poison. Picture a young, hip cross between Miss Marple and Kay Scarpetta. Ms Blackburn's characters come to life and are real. After a few pages, Jessica Hewitt becomes your friend. You want to be part of her crowd and share laughs, drinks, maybe shoot some pool, and solve a murder while you are at it. There is even "G" rated breathless sex as well. Ms Hewitt's day job is writing fantasy romance novels. This is a light, cheery novel--despite the murder--Perfect to read by the fire or beach or anywhere. Impossible not to put you in a good mood." -- Amazon reviewer

Pool shark Jessie Hewitt usually knows where the balls will fall and how the game will end. But when a body lands on her couch, and the cute cop in her kitchen accuses her of murder, even Jessie isn’t sure what will happen next. She also isn’t sure how to catch a killer, but she’s about to learn.

Her skill set doesn’t exactly fit the task, however. Jessie put herself through college hustling at a pool table, and nowadays makes her living writing racy novels. This middle-aged romance author has excellent people-watching skills, a keen imagination, and street smarts going way back. Come to think of it, Jessie is the perfect sleuth.

Playing With Poison is a cozy mystery with a lot of humor, a little romance, and far too much champagne.
