Spider Woman's Loom, by Lorie Adair. (Still free?)

"I found the writing, the characters, the storyline and themes of the novel to be very compelling. I highly recommend that you give this novel, Spider Woman's Loom your deepest reading and consideration." -- Alma Luz Villanueva, author of Song of the Golden Scorpion

"Lorie Adair enters the mythic mind of Native Peoples, as well as the harsh realities we've experienced on this Turtle Island. She has lived/worked in Navajo territory, becoming close friends with women, families there. This novel is written from these deep friendships, stories, dreams—and, most crucially, her humanity." Alma Luz Villanueva, Yaqui de Mexico

"In Spider Woman's Loom, Lorie Adair weaves a tale both lyrical and deeply relatable, a story of family, spirituality, and womanhood. Such beautiful language and images to savor, and yet the story is so compelling you can't wait to turn the page." —Tara Ison, author of Rockaway, A Novel

Spider Woman’s Loom is an exquisitely woven tale by debut novelist Lorie Adair. Set on the vast and starkly beautiful Navajo reservation in the aftermath of Indian agents exploiting the land and sending children to faraway boarding schools for assimilation, Spider Woman’s Loom is narrated by Noni Lee, an old Navajo weaver whose instinct for survival and fierce resistance drives away even those she loves most.

When her estranged niece Shi’yazhi returns to Sweet Canyon pregnant and utterly alone, Noni Lee is forced to face memories of her own innocence and beauty as well as the haunting traumas that stripped them away. Weaving a traditional rug, Noni Lee reconstructs a history and sense of family for herself and Shi’yazhi—the legacy of Spider Woman, whose gifts of creation and resiliency are a rite passed mother to child, woman to woman, as it was in the beginning, the surest path to hozho, the Beauty within each woman and the transcendence of circumstances most dire.

203 pages, with a 4.9-star rating from 9 reviews.

An Image of Death (The Ellie Foreman Mysteries Book 3), by Libby Fischer Hellmann. (Still 0.99?)

"A powerful tale... Hellmann is adept at welding technical information to strong characters... Foreman's pluck and grit married to Hellmann's solid storytelling should win a growing audience." -- Publishers Weekly

Who knew that a career in video documentaries could lead to crime? Chicago's Ellie Foreman is producing a video about foster children that's being financed by a successful Chicago real estate developer. Her plans get thrown for a loop when a mysterious package appears at her door one winter night. Inside she finds a surveillance video showing the murder of a young woman. Who was this woman and what is her connection to Ellie?

Except for Officer Georgia Davis, the cops shunt Ellie aside. But the urgency she feels to find answers, coupled with her professional knowledge of film, compel her to sleuth, so Ellie and Georgia start to investigate. A little digging reveals that the murder victim was a courier with a dark history forged in Eastern Europe at the time of the Soviet Union's collapse. And a little more digging reveals dark happenings here at home, money laundering, and the deadly price of dealing in diamonds. 

An Image of Death is the prequel to the author's 2014 best-selling thriller, Nobody's Child.

301 pages, with a 3.9-star rating from 42 reviews.

Never Say Spy (The Never Say Spy Series Book 1), by Diane Henders. (Still free?)

"I look for humor in most books and the humor in Never Say Spy is in the way these really strong characters, especially Ayden, face the what life brings them. I was so hoping that this was the beginning of a series and it looks like it is. To whoever recommended Never Say Spy, thanks. I am now a Diane Henders fan!" -- Amazon reviewer

Book 1 of the NEVER SAY SPY series

Despite her penchant for weapons and ripe language, Aydan Kelly’s resumé reads ‘bookkeeper’, not ‘badass’. She’s leaving the city to fulfill her dream of rural tranquillity when she gets carjacked by a man who shouldn’t exist.

When RCMP officer John Kane kills her would-be abductor, Aydan thinks her troubles are over. But Kane’s investigation implicates her in an international espionage plot, and criminal charges become the least of her worries when she’s targeted by the very spies Kane suspects her of aiding.

Pity her enemies. Because nobody’s tougher than a middle-aged woman who wants her dream back.

406 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 272 reviews.

Spying in High Heels (High Heels Mysteries #1), by Gemma Halliday. (Still free?)

"Fun book! If you like the Stephanie Plum novels, you'll love the High Heels Mystery series even more. Great sense of humor mixed into the mystery - and a hot cop of course!" -- Amazon reviewer

New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Kindle Bestselling series!

"Gemma Halliday's Maddie Springer is like the west coast version of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum - only more stylish!"
- LG Book Club

L.A. shoe designer, Maddie Springer, lives her life by three rules: Fashion. Fashion. Fashion.
