The Seeds Of A Daisy: The Lily Lockwood Series: Book One (Women's Fiction), by Alison Caiola. (Still free?)

"The story of a young woman dealing with emotional turmoil following her mother's devastating accident. It's full of raw emotion and high drama, set against the backdrop of Hollywood. Caiola's conversational style and flair for drama make this a suspenseful and absorbing read. I got so absorbed in the drama and the characters that I couldn't put it down. Entertaining, gripping, and tear-jerking, it's easy to get lost in." -- ZIGZAG Timeline

The Lily Lockwood Series: Book One
 

Sarah Jessica Parker has said about this book: "What a great story!" 

From the outside looking in, Lily Lockwood—popular star of the hit TV show "St. Joes"—seems to have it all. She has recently been nominated for an Emmy and her star is on the rise. Lily shares her beachfront Malibu home with her gorgeous actor-boyfriend Jamie. A perfect movie star romance and love story? Not so fast. Within a microcosmically short period of time, the whole thing falls apart when she learns that this boyfriend, on location shooting a Western, is riding horses all day and his curvy co-star all night. Lily is heartbroken, but before she can catch her breath she gets words that her mother, Daisy Lockwood—beloved author of women’s fiction beach reads and whose newest books are both New York Times bestsellers—has had a near-fatal car crash and is in intensive care in New York. Lily is devastated since the two have a bond that is closer than any mother daughter friendship could be. Lily flies from Los Angeles to be with Daisy. Once there, she must make critical life-and-death decisions. While sorting through her mother's papers, Lily makes a shocking discovery about her mother that threatens to shake Lily's very foundation. This sets Lily on a journey as she seeks to unlock the riddle of her mother's past. More than a medical drama fiction, this award-winning tear-jerker, chock full of funny moments, suspense and mystery will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Dying Eyes (Brian McDone Mysteries Book 1), by Ryan Casey. (Still free?)

"The beginning of this book is rather stunning and captivating. An unidentified young woman goes to a questionable part of town to deliver some documents. Who is the woman, what are the documents and to whom is she delivering them? What's going on? Unfortunately the delivery doesn't go as planned and the woman is brutally murdered. It's interesting to me to read British mysteries because of the differences between how things work in the United States. I found myself caring for the characters in the book and looking forward to the final answers." -- Amazon reviewer

What secrets hide behind dying eyes?

With the Christmas and New Year chaos out of the way, it's time for the Preston Police Department to put their feet up and return to normality.

But for Detective Brian McDone, there is no respite from the frenzy. An unidentified young woman is found brutally murdered in a seedy section of the city, her body laced with bruises, her sharp fingernails digging into her palms. Her eyes are staring up at something in pure fear.

Nobody knows who she is.

As Brian and his team begin to piece together the clues, the answers lead him to places he would least expect. The further Brian digs, one question soon becomes apparent: who can he trust? The answer, it seems, may be life-threatening.

The first in a new police procedural series from British author Ryan Casey, Dying Eyes is a dark urban detective mystery packed with suspense, and a twisting, turning plot sure to please fans of crime thrillers. If you enjoy hit Danish TV phenomenon, The Killing, you'll love Dying Eyes.

"With twists and turns aplenty, the story is both riveting and horrifying, and it is well-worth reading and re-reading." - T.A. Dean

408 pages, with a 3.8-star rating from 65 reviews.

Cars, Cats and Crooks (The Kimble Detective Agency Book 1), by R H Carter. (Still free?)

"I enjoyed Cars, Cats & Crooks. I particularly liked seeing how the friendship between Peyton and his nephew developed. When Peyton found the list and read the names on the list all I could say was OH NO! It brought all the loose ends together. Sorry it ended." -- Amazon reviewer

Ever Dreamt Of Becoming A Private Detective? - Peyton Has!

Peyton Kimble is 42 years old and has recently been made redundant from his boring dead end job at an independent car factory in Chester, UK. What should he do next with his life?
 

Become a private detective, of course!

Although the answer is obvious to the imaginative and intelligent Peyton, who feels like he’s been waiting for this opportunity all his life, his other half, Sherri, initially thinks he’s having some sort of mid-life crisis. But with the support of his sister Ros and her eighteen year old lazy, but clever drop-out son, Jackson Chadwick – who soon becomes Peyton’s assistant – the 'Kimble Detective Agency' takes off with a bang!

Their first case is the mystery of Mrs Boggins’ missing cat, a seemingly simple, boring and childish investigation which actually ends up being a little more complicated than they initially imagined, and lands them an article in the local paper after their heroic rescue of poor Speckles.

But when Gordon Tate turns up dead, Peyton and Jackson are drawn into an entirely more sinister world that will change both their lives forever. The police rule the death as a suicide, but Peyton and Jackson have other ideas.
 

Will The Outcome Be A Total Success?
 

With all the evidence stacked against them and even the police turning their backs, can Peyton and Jackson prove that this was something more than a simple suicide?

The revelations, they uncover, will turn Peyton's entire family upside down, dredging up old secrets and scandals from the past that most thought were long buried and forgotten.

245 pages, with a 4.1-star rating from 102 reviews.

Gaslight (A Soho Noir Thriller), by Mark Dawson. (Still free?)

"Ultra-addictive, super-stylish - a viciously good novel." -- Amazon reviewer

Best-selling author Mark Dawson releases the prequel novella in the Soho Noir series.

Gaslight tells of events twenty years before The Imposter and The Black Mile (the #1 Amazon bestseller in Mysteries and Thrillers that has earned multiple 5 star rave reviews from readers all around the world).

GASLIGHT

It's London, 1920. Newly demobilized soldiers have flooded the capital's streets but an ungrateful country isn't ready for them. Harry Costello has returned from the horrors of the Somme to no job, no money and no prospects. Desperate times demand desperate measures and when an opportunity to burgle a house presents itself, Harry seizes the chance.

When Harry and his brother Frank are blackmailed into paying off a local hood they decide to take care of the problem themselves. But when all of London's underworld is in thrall to the man's boss, was their plan audacious or the most foolish thing that they could possibly have done?

You think crime doesn't pay? Meet the Costelllos - the kind of criminal family that might make you change your mind.

65 pages, with a 4.1-star rating from 50 reviews.
