Missy the Werecat, by P. G. Allison. (Still free?)

"Missy is an incredible character. She has a great personality and an awesome attitude, and faces challenges with intelligence and purpose. When Missy finds out that her friend Alice has been having some difficulty with her step-father Missy finds a very intriguing way to deal with him. This story has great characters, mystery, intrigue, romance and most of what I look for in a good book." -- Amazon reviewer

Missy the Werecat: Book I

When puberty brings on her first Shift, Missy goes into the mountains for two years until finally learning to Change back. She can Change from fully human in one instant to a mountain lion in the next. Everyone assumes her two year disappearance was because she’d been kidnapped by a sexual predator that she managed to kill. She keeps her werecat nature a secret. There is no pack, no pride of other werecats and no alpha. She’s a girl with fantastic abilities growing up and learning to do great things in today’s world, amongst humans. She only has her instincts to guide her and those drive her to train herself to extremes. She must control those instincts; dampening the wild predator is often necessary. Her raging hormones and enhanced senses require very strong controls; she explores what happens when those controls are relaxed.

Then Like The Blind Man: Orbie's Story, by Freddie Owens. (Still 1.99?)

Save $3 today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

" In his debut novel, Owens captures his characters' folksy Appalachian diction without overdoing it. He also renders a child's viewpoint with great psychological sensitivity. A psychologically astute, skillful, engrossing and satisfying novel. " -- Amazon reviewer

"Every once in awhile, you read a book in which every element fits together so perfectly that you just sit back in awe at the skill of the storyteller. Then Like the Blind Man is one of these books." ----The San Francisco Book Review----

A storm is brewing in the all-but-forgotten back country of Kentucky. And, for young Orbie Ray, the swirling heavens may just have the power to tear open his family's darkest secrets. Then Like the Blind Man: Orbie's Story tells the story of a white youth cast aside in the segregated South of the 1950s, and the forces he must overcome to restore order in his world.

Nine-year-old Orbie already has his cross to bear. After the death of his father, his mother Ruby has off and married Victor, a slick-talking man with a snake tattoo. Orbie hates his stepfather more than he can stand, a fact that lands him at his grandparents' place in Harlan's Crossroads, Kentucky. Orbie grudgingly adjusts to life with his doting Granny and carping Granpaw, who are a bit too keen on their black neighbors for Orbie's taste, not to mention the local Pentecostal congregation of snake handlers. Soon, however, he finds his worldviews changing, particularly when it comes to matters of race, religion and the true cause of his father's death.

Equal parts Hamlet and Huckleberry Finn, Then Like the Blind Man comprises Orbie Ray's first person account, one pretty nearly certain to resonate with lovers of the literary and historical genres.

Daniel's Gift, by Barbara Freethy. (Still 0.99?)

"I just discovered this book, had read Barbara's more recent titles, but had no idea what I was missing. This is a wonderful story, so poignant and heartwarming that I couldn't stop thinking about it all day. I love reunion stories, but this one was particularly tender because of the little boy and his intense wish to know his father. All I can say is WOW! Don't miss this book." -- Amazon reviewer

Customers who like books by Debbie Macomber, Kristin Hannah, and Susan Wiggs will enjoy this emotionally compelling story of love, family and a little bit of magic from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy.

In her impetuous summer of love, Jenny St. Claire found Luke Sheridan -- her dashing knight in intern's scrubs. But a fast-track future and rigid, ambitious parents drove passion out of Luke's life. And the summer ended, leaving Jenny with a broken heart... and a beautiful son, Danny, to help mend it.

Years later it is tragedy that reunites them -- the father whom a son longs to know, and the mother who has tried desperately to forget. And as Luke and Jenny struggle to ignore the pain and desire reborn in a look and a touch, only the remarkable courage of a young boy -- and the help of a rather unorthodox guardian angel -- can offer them the most precious gift of all: a second chance at the love of a lifetime.

400 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 276 reviews.

An Appetite for Revenge (A Sarah Woods Mystery), by Jennifer L. Jennings. (Still free?)

"My favorite element about the writing style of Author Jennifer L. Jennings is her ability to captivate your attention right from the very start of her novels. Simply spellbinding on a whole other level!" -- The Literary Critic


Jealousy, Blackmail, Revenge

Sarah Woods, a rookie private eye from New Hampshire, decides to visit her boyfriend in Florida, for a much needed respite from the cold. The only problem is, Max's ex-girlfriend -- Jennifer Healy -- works for the client. Sarah tries to convince herself that Max and Jennifer are simply friends, but can't help feeling suspicious.

While Max is busy working on a project, Sarah plans to spend her days lounging on the beach. However, on the night of her arrival, Max's client, millionaire Dennis Foster has a heart attack. No big surprise considering the man is a chain smoker with high blood pressure.

Dennis's widow may or may not be distraught over her husband's death, but she wants to hire Sarah to help with a personal matter that involves sex and blackmail.

Carter agrees to make the trip to help Sarah with the investigation, but things go dreadfully wrong when he makes an attempt to engage with a violent suspect.
