Save $2 today on this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"I loved the setting in the Provence, which I have visited myself. There are enough twists, turns and suspense, as well as false leads to keep this a page turner." -- Amazon reviewer

The SECOND novel in the Georgia Lee Maxwell series.

"[Michaela Thompson] has given us a fresh new heroine in Georgia Lee Maxwell . . . She is a delight, a bright and funny lady with a breezy narrative voice." -Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine

"Georgia, bright and kooky, is an engaging narrator and her adventures come thick and fast." -(London) Times Literary Supplement (about the British edition)

"Witty, thoroughly enjoyable crime novel." -Jewish Gazette


In journalist Georgia Lee Maxwell's second adventure, she leaves her new home in Paris for Provence, where she's been offered a lucrative ghost-writing job. But her co-author, suspected murderess Vivien Howard, the widow of a wealthy New York financier, seems strangely uninterested in writing her memoir Vivian was widely believed to have murdered her husband but was never charged with the crime, and now she promises to tell all.

Amid the beauties of Provence, settled in, a charming renovated farmhouse, Georgia Lee finds a household full of ill-feeling, not to mention suspicious characters -- Vivien's handsome artist lover, Ross; her neurotic daughter, Blanche; and Pedro Ruiz, a mysterious housekeeper who has accompanied them from New York.

Frustrated by Vivien's lack of cooperation and unnerved by threatening letters, Georgia Lee soon realizes that she has become a player in a more dangerous game than she could have imagined. And then there's another murder.

When Georgia Lee transplanted herself from Florida to Paris in Magic Mirror, Publishers Weekly applauded: "The debut of Georgia Lee Maxwell is an all-around delight. . . a brisk and witty book full of sharply unexpected events and packed with wonderfully robust characters."

As in Magic Mirror, Michaela Thompson's ability to bring alive a locale shines here. The writing is crisp, the protagonist witty, and the mystery is twisty. A great choice for armchair travelers! Also for fans of Cara Black, Michael Bond, and of course, the great Georges Simenon. Admirers of Hank Phillippi Ryan and the HBO show THE NEWSROOM will love the journalistic background.

Twice The Growl (BBW Paranormal Shape Shifter Romance) (Paranormal Dating Agency Book 1), by Milly Taiden. (Still 0.99?)

"Twice the Growl was very easy to read and I really enjoyed the characters and the story. The couple fit very well as a triad and there was no major conflict between them. And that's probably why the book rates about 3.75 stars instead of a solid 4. I definitely enjoyed the story but I wanted there to be a bit more drama, yes there was some; however, I wanted a bit more than there was." -- Amazon reviewer

Paranormal Dating Agency Book 1 (STANDALONE)

A BBW in need of a date + Two hot Alphas looking for a mate = The hottest triad ever.

Talia Barca needs a date. Badly. She uses the services of the Paranormal Dating Agency hoping for a decent guy to take to a family wedding. A wedding her ex-husband has wormed his way into as a guest.

Connor and Theron want Tally to complete their Alpha triad. She's sexy, curvy and funny. But she's human. And they're not sure she'll go for a relationship with two men at the same time.

As if deciding to give two men a shot wasn’t difficult enough, Tally will also need to deal with a threat from the pack. She'll either prove she's strong enough to be an Alpha mate or find herself at the mercy of a vicious opponent.

Reader Warning: This book contains lots of scorching sex, adult language, and violence. If this is not the kind of stuff you like to read, skip this book. However, if you like dirty, raunchy sex with some sarcasm and two hot men on one curvy girl, then this is right up your alley. Enjoy!

Concealed Power (The Healers of Meligna Book 1), by K. J. Colt. (Still free?)

"This book provokes a lot of great emotions and totally involved me in the story. I was angry but compassionate toward her parents and friends for their role in her isolation, and my heart ached for all the horrors that Adenine has to endure just because of her genetics. I look forward to reading the following novels as she grows into a woman and her tale continues. Highly recommended for anyone who likes fantasy or a highly involved storyline with a strong heroine." -- Amazon reviewer

[The Healers of Meligna is a 5 novel series. Book 4 will be released in November this year.]

"There was an illness much worse than anything I had ever seen, and that was the sickness of my country."

Adenine is blind and isolated in her small attic bedroom. Haunted by the recent deaths of her uncle and father, she is alone and afraid. Believing she is a carrier of the incurable Death Plague that ravished the lands twenty-five years ago, she never goes outside.

When her mother falls ill, Adenine begins to starve. Despite her terror of infecting others, she goes in search of the town's doctor. Friends are made, enemies are discovered and every secret unravels. Pursued by the country's exiled healers, Adenine's life now depends on who she trusts.
