Optical Delusions in Deadwood (Deadwood Humorous Mystery Book 2), by Ann Charles. (Still 0.99?)

"... mystery, humor, romance, and fun all wrapped up in a great book." -- BooksRUs Reviews

From the Award-winning Author of Nearly Departed in Deadwood!

“What a voice! Hilarious, original, and genuinely wonderful. This fresh and feisty mystery will instantly win your heart. Loved it!” ~HANK PHILLIPPI RYAN, Anthony, Agatha and Macavity winning author

“A smart, sassy, sexy and wonderfully resourceful heroine. Move over Stephanie Plum—Vi Parker is here!” ~JOHN KLAWITTER, award-winning Tinseltown writer/director, and author of the award-winning Hollywood Havoc action thriller novels

***You’ll laugh. You’ll cringe. You’ll want even more!***

Someone is spreading rumors around Deadwood that Violet Parker likes to chat with dead folks.

With her reputation endangered, her bank account on the verge of extinction, and her career at risk of going up in flames, Violet is desperate. When the opportunity to sell another vintage home materializes, she grabs it, even though this “haunted” house was recently the stage for a two-act, murder-suicide tragedy.

Ghost or no ghost, Violet knows this can’t be as bad as the last house of horrors she tried to sell, but sexy Doc Nyce has serious doubts. Her only hope of hanging on to her job is to prove that the so-called, ghostly sightings are merely the eccentric owner’s optical delusions.

But someone—or something—in the house wants Violet stopped...dead.

Mimicry of Banshees, by G.K. Parks. (Still free?)

"I thought this was a very interesting mystery book. It had a lot of twists and turns to it. There were two story lines going. One about a murdered model, and the other about a young man who had lost his father. I give the book a solid 5 stars!" -- Amazon reviewer

Brains, beauty, and a past plagued with death and destruction, Alexis Parker is anything but ordinary. Her deductive skills and expert marksmanship make her deadly, but she must contend with her demons in order to overcome the irreparable damage she's endured.

Ever since meeting James Martin, Alex's life has never been the same. The former federal agent turned private investigator has faced off against mercenaries, deranged crime lords, and art smugglers, and that's just what's happened since taking a job in the private sector. After the most recent brush with death, Alex is reconsidering her work as a private security consultant, but the universe has other plans.

Martin has been arrested for the murder of supermodel Caterina Skolnick. The body was found on his yacht, and he was the only person onboard. Now Alex is once again rehired by her former boss to clear his name and identify the assailant. Her stellar reputation and Martin's affluence, coupled with the threat of a lawsuit, force the police department to enlist her help in resolving this matter. Furthermore, she's a size two, and they need her to infiltrate the salacious world of modeling, armed only with sarcasm and stilettos.

Her worlds collide when her corporate gig at Martin Technologies, her consulting position with the local PD, and her almost relationship with Martin blend together in a maelstrom of drugs, sex, and security overhauls. What's a girl to do when the boundaries between her private life and her work life no longer exist?

349 pages, with a 5.0-star rating from 6 reviews.





Murder at Jade Cove (Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery Book 2), by Dianne Harman. (Still 0.99?)

"I adored Kelly's Koffee Shop and this is another wonderful story from Dianne Harman. The quaint setting along the beach is where I would love to read these books. The author creates the atmosphere of the fictional town so well. She really has a nice way of telling a story. Rebel is back for this book and many other quirky characters. Anyone who likes cozy mysteries or a great story will enjoy this. Incidentally in addition to the recipes there’s a very interesting surprise included. Highly recommended. Five stars." -- Amazon reviewer

Was it the environmental activist enamored with spotted owls, someone from the local Native American tribe, Jeff’s son, Jeff’s wife, or his wife’s lover? Join Kelly, the owner of Kelly’s Koffee Shop, her boxer dog, Rebel, and her fiancĂ©, Mike, the county sheriff, as they try and catch the person who killed Jeff Black.

Well, it’s not as if no one wanted Jeff dead. He had enemies. There were a lot of people who didn’t want to see his property turned into a commercial hotel and spa. Finding suspects won’t be hard to do, but finding out who killed him will be. No one would ever nominate Jeff for the “Most Popular Citizen Award.” This is going to be a nightmare for Mike. I wonder how I can help him, Kelly thought.

Murder at Jade Cove is another mouth-watering Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery with recipes and a
surprise at the very end!

151 pages, with a 4.2-star rating from 53 reviews.

Teacher Beware (A Grace Ellery Romantic Suspense Book 1), by Charlotte Raine. (Still free?)

"Enjoy the heart-pounding journey taken by the three main characters: Grace, who is always in the line of immediate danger; Sam who has befriended her and tries to help keep her safe, but falls head over heels for her; and Deke, a natural born killer who inherited the thrill to kill from his father. Once again, Charlotte Raine has written a well composed story, as told in the first person by each character, that will keep you spellbound to the very end." -- Amazon reviewer

Thirty-one year old Grace Ellery survived being stabbed multiple times in Ohio. Two years later, she moves to Murray, Virginia to get a new lease on life.

On her first day of substitute teaching, her new life is nearly cut short when she finds herself in the middle of a shooting that leaves a married couple dead. Luckily, she is saved by Sam Meadows, a cardiologist, but the shooter has disappeared by the time the police come around.

When the shooter tries to kill Grace again, Sam and Grace realize that the killer won’t stop until she is dead. With a killer who has nothing to lose, the question isn’t if the killer will attack again, but when and who will be in the crosshairs. A romance/murder-mystery wrapped in the aspects of life: love, family, forgiveness, danger, and death.

288 pages, with a 4.1-star rating from 51 reviews.
