The Housewife Assassin's Handbook (Housewife Assassin Series, Book 1), by Josie Brown. (Still free?)

"Secrets, sex, money and scandal... Josie Brown is a skilled observer whose clever dialogue makes for truly entertaining reading." -- Jackie Collins

"Brown takes a dark look at the fears of parenthood and family... Still, the message from the somber realities is one full of hope: love makes a family, commitment keeps it together." -- Publishers Weekly

Murder, suspense, sex—and some handy household tips.

Every desperate housewife wants an alias. Donna Stone has one…and it happens to be government-sanctioned. She earned it the hard way: her husband was killed the day she delivered her third child. To avenge his death, she leads a secret life – as an assassin. But espionage makes for strange bedfellows – and brings new meaning to that old adage, "Honey, I’m home…"

If you love funny mysteries with hard-boiled, sexy women sleuths, check out THE HOUSEWIFE ASSASSIN’S HANDBOOK!

Fantasy of Frost (The Tainted Accords Book 1), by Kelly St Clare. (Still 0.99?)

"Highly recommended! I absolutely loved this book! The world building is beautifully done, fresh and interesting. It was fun reading about the differences of the two worlds, and especially, to see the foreign world with the eyes of the character -- I can't describe it all without spoilers. I laughed a lot at Olina's behavior as the book picked up, throwing her into different situations. I also had to keep back the tears for her. It's a beautiful, beautiful story (filled with hot men, ladies). I'm sorry for jumping from thought to thought, I'm just so full of mixed feelings after I just finished reading. And isn't it what you expect from a book?" -- Amazon reviewer

Fantasy of Frost is the first title in The Tainted Accords.

I know many things. What I am capable of, what I will change, what I want to become. But there is one thing I will never know.

Being the Tatuma of our world, the next to rule, should have given me a privileged life. One full of friends, love and happiness. If my mother did not hate me, I probably would have had that. Instead, she has kept me veiled from birth, turning the possibility of this distant dream into a living nightmare.

Shunned by the court, abused from childhood, I am trapped within this material barrier and will never know my own face. Only two friends and a determination to become Tatum keep me sane.

I am unaware everything in my life is about to change when the peace delegate arrives from the savage world of Glacium. Hidden agendas, past secrets and my struggle to stay alive–while still becoming the person I want to be–careen wildly out of control.

Join Olina in this coming-of-age fantasy.

Warning: Cliff-hanger ending. Suitable for young adult+. Novel contains fighting scenes, swearing, romance, sexual themes and general kick ass.

Welcome to Last Chance (A Place to Call Home Book #1): A Novel, by Cathleen Armstrong. (Still free?)

"The story is sweet, the town is charming, and the characters residing in Last Chance, New Mexico are just that -- characters -- and they certainly provide a lot of color to this small town way off the beaten path. I love stories set in small towns. There's something so beautiful about the way people know one another and band together in the midst of struggle. Last Chance was certainly no exception, though I wondered a time or two if they didn't give people the benefit of the doubt a little too quickly at times." -- Amazon reviewer

She's learned you can't count on anyone--but she didn't count on landing in Last Chance.
The red warning light on her car dashboard may have driven Lainie Davis to seek help in the tiny town of Last Chance, New Mexico, but as she meets the people who make this one-horse town their home, it's her heart that is flashing bright red warning lights. These people are entirely too nice, too accommodating, and too interested in her personal life--especially since she's on the run and hoping to slip away unnoticed.

Yet in spite of herself, Lainie is increasingly drawn into the small-town dramas and to a handsome local guy with a secret of his own. Could Lainie actually make a life in this little town? Or will the past catch up to her even here in the middle of nowhere?

289 pages, with a 4.2-star rating from 167 reviews.

Frosted Shadow, a Toni Diamond Mystery: Toni Diamond Mysteries, by Nancy Warren. (Still free?)

"In Frosted Shadow Nancy Warren delivers a rollicking, fun mystery ride filled with murder, mayhem and makeup!" -- Wendy Roberts, author of the Ghost Dusters mystery series

There's nothing pretty about murder.

Meet Toni Diamond, make up artist to middle America. She's got a nose for trouble and a passion for solving mysteries. Imagine Columbo in a lavender suit. She never met a woman who wouldn't look better with a little help from the Lady Bianca line of cosmetics. But don't be fooled by appearances. Underneath the fake diamonds and the big hair is a sharp brain and a keen eye that sees the details as well as the funny side of life. When a Lady Bianca sales rep is murdered at the annual convention in Dallas, Toni is the one who notices things that some people, like sexy Detective Luke Marciano, might easily miss. Only someone who understands as much about how to make appearances deceiving could see into the mind of this killer -- a murderer who wants to give Toni a permanent makeover. Into a dead woman.

At the sales convention, Toni has to deal with her arch rival Nicole Freedman, a woman who would stab Toni in the back if it would get her the coveted top sales award. She's got her own beauty consultants to encourage, her mother who's taken Dolly Parton as her pattern and her patron saint, her daughter Tiffany, who, at sixteen, is mortified by everything her mother does. Including breathing.

In this humorous, cozy mystery, complete with a wily and entertaining amateur female sleuth, a sexy police officer, a murder or two, and a little comedy, a suburban cosmetics sales woman matches wits with a fiendish murderer.

225 pages, with a 4.2-star rating from 352 reviews.
