Marking Time (The Immortal Descendants, Book 1), by April White. (Still free?)

"This was an epic adventure of a book, written so well and creating a thriving and vivid world. The supporting characters were well-developed and played key roles in the advancement of the story. So much is going on -- drama, back history, history, tidbits of mystery -- that you wish you could figure out. Then there is the love... oh, my heart. It is so sweet and endearing and just compels you forward wanting to know what will happen with them." -- Jennifer, Back off my Books Reviews

Seventeen-year-old tagger Saira Elian can handle anything... a mother who mysteriously disappears, a stranger who stalks her around London, and even the noble English Grandmother who kicked Saira and her mother out of the family. But when an old graffiti tag in a tube station transports Saira to the 19th Century and she comes face-to-face with Jack the Ripper, she realizes she needs help after all.

Saira meets Archer, a charming student who helps her blend in as much as a tall, modern American teen can in Victorian England. He reveals the existence of the Immortals: Time, Nature, Fate, War and Death, and explains to Saira that it is possible to move between
centuries – if you are a Descendant of Time.

Saira finds unexpected friendships at a boarding school for Immortal Descendants and a complicated love with a young man from the past. But time is running out for her mother, and Saira must embrace her new identity as she hides from Archer a devastating secret about his future that may cost him his life.

Whispers of the Stones (A High Country Mystery), by Loretta Jackson. (Still 3.99?)

"A multi-layered mystery that should prove a strong addition for genre fans." -- Midwest Book Review

"If you like a mystery with an interesting location as well as colorful characters, this is the one for you." -- Reader's Favorite, Jean Brickell

Sheriff Jeff McQuede finds 'Bartering Bill' Garr murdered at his rural antique store. Only one item is missing -- a rare artifact believed to be the Pedro Mummy. First discovered in a cave in Wyoming, the Pedro Mummy was reported missing in the 1950s. Dr. Seth Talbot, newly arrived in town, has put out a fifteen-thousand-dollar reward for any information on the mummy, hoping that modern technology will prove his theory that a tiny race of people actually existed: one the Shoshones call the Nimerigar, or Little People.

McQuede is astounded to find the mummy in the trunk of Seth Talbot's car. Talbot swears he;s being set up by rival co-workers -- Dr. Arden Reed, in particular -- who plans to benefit from his research. 

McQuede suspects the theft of the mummy is a red herring used to cover up the true motive for the crime. The closer he comes to the truth, the deeper McQuede is drawn into an elaborate hoax that threatens his career and places him in grave danger.

Forever His Baby, by Morgana Phoenix. (Still 0.99?)

"A wonderful read. The author's descriptions when explaining a scene or person are spot on; you can paint the character as you read. Lily was a great lead -- she seemed to think of everyone else before herself and in someway it was a selfish way to handle things... but in another she was I think the greatest friend someone could have. EVERY woman has had a Sloan in their lives; there is always that one man growing up that they thought about. Sloan's character was the perfect man through and through. Strong, Masculine, DREAMY! And a smile that could take a woman's breath away." -- Amazon reviewer

Two brothers. One impossible choice.

From the moment her suspicions are confirmed, Lily knows she’s screwed. What the hell is a nineteen year old with no future going to do with a baby? She can barely take care of herself. She needs help.

In walks Sloan McClain, the only man Lily has ever truly wanted — and the brother of the boy whose baby she’s carrying. While Lily expects a great number of outcomes when she tells Sloan her news, him proposing marriage and asking her to keep the baby is not one of them, especially not when she has every intention of giving the baby a better future by giving it the home she can’t.

Having spent the majority of his life protecting his brother from the bone-breaking fists of their father, Sloan is no stranger to hardship, loss and abandonment. He has learned long ago never to rely on anyone to take care of what was his, and that baby is his. He isn’t about to let Lily give away his family, nor can he allow that child to destroy the future he has built for Cole. His only option: marry the mother and claim the baby as his.

But no secret ever stays hidden forever.

Don't Be A Stranger: A Light-Hearted Valerie Inkerman Mystery (Valerie Inkerman Investigates Book 1), by A.R. Winters. (Still free?)

"I really enjoyed Valerie's character. She was likable, trusting of people, but not so trusting that she doesn't make intelligent choices. I really liked the "friendship chemistry" between her and Jerry. He was like an adorable dog -- loyal, but sometimes clueless. At times, this book made me laugh out loud, like when a potential suspect comes over and the roommates grab a frying pan and butcher knife for protection and pretend they're cooking something." -- Amazon reviewer


When Valerie Inkerman’s roommate Jerry gets her a waitressing gig at cushy Hamptons party, she has no idea that murder is on the menu.
 

"A Delightful Book For A Relaxing Read!"

But when one of the guests is found dead and Jerry is accused of being the killer, Val knows she needs to utilise all her skills as a private investigator to clear his name.
 

Trying to track down the victim’s possible enemies and find new leads, Val faces distractions in the form of old acquaintances and a hot dinner date. But as Val’s leads all turn into dead ends, the killer seems to stay step ahead of her all the time.

Val knows she’s close to finding out the truth, but will she be able to put the pieces of the puzzle together before time runs out for Jerry or the killer strikes again?
