Kindle Daily Deals: A Cozy Mystery, Romance, Anthony Bourdain, Sci-fi and a charming picture book!



Here's today's Kindle Daily Deal, available for $1.99!

A Pint of Murder (The Madoc and Janet Rhys Mysteries), by Charlotte MacLeod.

A killer wielding poisonous green beans terrorizes a small Canadian town

Agatha Treadway has done her own preserving ever since the day her husband was done in by a can of supermarket tomatoes. And after four vigilant decades canning everything from peaches to spinach, it is her own green beans that kill her. Inspecting the fatal jar, Janet Wadman finds it has been tampered with, so that toxic botulism was allowed to seep in. But before she can tell the town doctor that Mrs. Treadway was murdered, the doctor joins the widow in untimely death.
To investigate, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police sends Madoc Rhys, a Mountie who doesn’t look the part. Masquerading as a relative, this squat Welshman helps Janet dig into the town’s dark side. And what they find is a deadly secret that proves even more poisonous than botulism.

Here's today's Daily Romance Deal, available for $1.99!

Cooper's Folly, by Mary Strand.

He may not be Mr. Mom, but he could be Mr. Perfect.

One burned-out lawyer applying to work as a nanny.
One stressed-out single mom desperate for help.
Two kidlets looking for a daddy.
Crazy? But they might just make a family.

Molly's eyes took another quick sweep of him. Gorgeous. But she needed a nanny not a stud, and she needed one today. "This isn't a joke? You're serious about this job?"

He nodded.

Molly reviewed her options one last time. Unfortunately, with her job on the line and two small children depending on her, she had just one. This man. This--okay--tall, very attractive, very blond, very tempting man. She had neither the time nor the tolerance for casual or even not-so-casual flings, but she appreciated a gorgeous man when she saw one. She wasn't dead yet. Cooper Meredith was clearly not dead yet, either. More Saturday-night-date material than nanny material, but maybe she could make this work until she got home from New York.

"Well, Mr. Meredith? What's your answer?"
"Ms. Perrell, it's a resounding yes."

A Moveable Feast (Lonely Planet Travel Literature), by Anthony Bourdain.

From bat on the island of Fais to chicken on a Russian train to barbecue in the American heartland, from mutton in Mongolia to couscous in Morocco to tacos in Tijuana - on the road, food nourishes us not only physically, but intellectually, emotionally,and spiritually too. It can be a gift that enables a traveler to survive, a doorway into the heart of a tribe, or a thread that weaves an indelible tie; it can be awful or ambrosial - and sometimes both at the same time. Celebrate the riches and revelations of food with this 38-course feast of true tales set around the world. Edited by Don George

Here's today's Daily Science Fiction/Fantasy Deal, available for $1.99!

Starship Grifters (A Rex Nihilo Adventure), by Robert Kroese.

A space-faring ne’er-do-well with more bravado than brains, Rex Nihilo plies the known universe in a tireless quest for his own personal gain. But when he fleeces a wealthy weapons dealer in a high-stakes poker game, he ends up winning a worthless planet…and owing an outstanding debt more vast than space itself!
The only way for Rex to escape a lifetime of torture on the prison world Gulagatraz is to score a big payday by pulling off his biggest scam. But getting mixed up in the struggle between the tyrannical Malarchian Empire and the plucky rebels of the Revolting Front—and trying to double-cross them both—may be his biggest mistake. Luckily for Rex, his frustrated but faithful robot sidekick has the cyber-smarts to deal with buxom bounty hunters, pudgy princesses, overbearing overlords, and interstellar evangelists…while still keeping Rex’s martini glass filled.
