Killer Twist (A Ghostwriter Mystery Book 1), by C.A. Larmer. (Still free?)

"Excellent book, Fun, and well written. There are a number of very surprising twists, and characters who show up and seem to throw a monkey wrench into the whole thing. But when everything is finally finished, there are no loose ends left untied except the poor man who was so in love with Roxy, just like I was." -- Amazon reviewer

KILLER TWIST is the first stand-alone mystery in the popular 'amateur women sleuths' series featuring sassy ghostwriter/Nosy Parker, Roxy.

No one bats an eyelid when a bag lady washes up on the shores of Sydney, minus five fingers and decked out in designer couture; nor is anyone too perturbed when socialite Beatrice Musgrave plunges to her death soon after. No one, that is, except ghostwriter and Merlot-lover Roxy Parker. She’s been writing Beattie’s 'autobiography' and has just stumbled on a secret that’s worth killing for.

With slick black hair, tortoise-shell glasses and a penchant for cheap plonk, Roxy Parker is a sassy new female detective … except she’s not strictly a detective. Rather, she’s a writer with a taste for the morbid and mysterious—and this time her little sideline may get her in way over her head …

In the first book of the Ghostwriter Mystery series (each one a stand-alone story), Roxy is hired to ghostwrite the life story of department store heiress Beatrice Musgrave. Beatrice has promised Roxy a secret worth writing about, but before she gets the chance to tell all, the socialite is found ripped to shreds at the bottom of a cliff. The police say it's suicide but Roxy knows better—there are too many people looking way too relieved.

And so she embarks on an investigation of her own. From the posh suburbs of inner-city Sydney to remote outback Australia, Roxy finds herself lured into a web of deceit where time has healed no wounds and no one is who they appear to be. One thing, however, is crystal clear: chasing headlines can be a deadly occupation. Roxy must also act fast—there's a menacing stranger threatening her life, a handsome best friend growing increasingly impatient, and her mother is really starting to get on her nerves.

Killer Twist is a fun, fast-paced adventure for anyone who loves a good cozy mystery with a little wine swilling and fashionable accessories on the side.

From the author of the Amazon best-selling cozy mystery The Agatha Mystery Book Club.

Xoe: Vampires, and Werewolves, and Demons, oh my! (Xoe Meyers Fantasy/Horror Series Book 1), by Sara C. Roethle. (Still free?)

"Although this book was written for the teenage reader, adults will enjoy it as well. Filled with emotion and attitude, I found this book to be fun and engaging." -- Vampire Librarian

Xoe Meyers had a normal life. So she was stuck going to high school, and she only had a few friends to call her own. She liked her normal life. Things were about to change though, because there's a new guy in her small town, and he is anything but normal. Before Xoe can say, "Werewolf," her best friend's life is in peril, and Xoe's world is turned upside-down. Then, of course, there's Jason. Xoe doesn't trust him as far as she can throw him, and given that he's a vampire, she'd have to be able to catch him first.

(This book falls under the "Teen and Young Adult" category for Urban Fantasy, but is suitable for any who love Paranormal Romance and Adventure, no matter their age. Xoe is available for free to all.)

205 pages, with a 4.3-star rating from 185 reviews.

Dearest Clementine: Dearest Series, by Lex Martin. (Still free?)

"DEAREST CLEMENTINE will grip you in a matter of seconds, taking you on a seamless romantic journey, filled with laughs, steamy moments, and hypnotizing writing. I wholeheartedly suggest opening this book." -- Becca Ritchie, author of the ADDICTED series

New Adult Contemporary Romance - Recommended for readers 18+ due to mature content

***This is the first book in the Dearest Series and a standalone novel.***

Twenty-year-old Clementine Avery doesn't mind being called bitchy and closed off. It's safe, and after being burned by her high school sweetheart and stalked by a professor her freshman year of college, safe sounds pretty damn good.

Her number one rule for survival? No dating. That is until she accidentally signs up for a romance writing class and needs material for her latest assignment. Sexy RA Gavin Murphy is more than happy to play the part of book boyfriend to help Clem find some inspiration, even if that means making out...in the name of research, of course.

As Gavin and Clem grow closer, they get entangled in the mystery surrounding a missing Boston University student, and Clem unwittingly becomes a possible target. Gavin tries to show Clem she can handle falling in love again, but she knows she has to be careful because her heart's at stake...and maybe even her life.

"A quick read mystery set in Montana. Lucy Matthews owns a small antique shop and is a journalist for her local newspaper. When she finds a dead man behind her shop she can't resist finding out the whole story. A fun entertaining book that will keep you guessing." -- Amazon reviewer

Fun, romantic, cozy mystery featuring amateur sleuth and antique store owner, Lucy Mathews. Lucy and her dog find romance and murder in the mountains of Montana.

Lucy Mathews, crime reporter turned antiques dealer, avoids confrontation like a home perm. She even lets a cat shove her around.

When Lucy trips over the body of a buckskin-clad relics trader, her ex-boss asks her to cover the story. She tries to tell him no, but old habits die hard and soon she finds herself directly in the path of a killer and the exasperating, if attractive, detective in charge.
