The Seventh Magpie, by Nancy Chase. (Still 0.99?)

Save today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"A true fairy tale is every sense of the word! Magic and trickery; hope and desperation; help and betrayal; puzzles to be solved and lessons to be learned---it has all of these and more. Beautifully written and each chapter begs you to solve the next riddle with Catrin. The ending is a twist and yet expected...and if you think you can figure it out...read and enjoy and lose yourself in the pages of prose and delight in the the illustrations that tantalize the reader with the tale to come! Definitely joins the rank of my beloved fairy tales." -- Amazon reviewer

A queen's disappearance. A priceless magical book. A lost love. A deadly mistake. Can Princess Catrin set things right and regain all she has lost, or will the riddles of the seven Magpies cost her the only thing she still values?

Princess Catrin is just a child when her mother vanishes, leaving her a cryptic legacy: a priceless magical book and the warning that if Catrin ever loses it, she’ll surely die. But she is a young woman on the brink of a whole new life when, in a moment of defiance, she forgets that warning and triggers a catastrophe that shatters all her hopes.

Stricken with grief and seeking a way to correct her terrible mistake, Catrin risks everything on a dangerous bargain. Too late, she realizes just how much more she has to lose.

With advice from a half-mad witch and help from companions she meets along the way, Catrin embarks on a desperate quest to defeat seven riddling Magpies—magical tricksters who can shapeshift into anything or anyone—and win back her book or face losing everything she holds dear.

With each step the stakes get higher, and there are secrets she still doesn’t suspect. How much is Catrin willing to sacrifice to finally unmask the Seventh Magpie?

A dark fairy tale of loss and renewal.

264 pages, with a 4.9-star rating from 14 reviews.

Save today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"Crisp and enthralling! The concept of advanced cloning with memories reborn is a fascinating tale, set in the future but with characters the reader can relate to. The plot and storyline kept me going. Can't wait to read the other books in this series!" -- Amazon reviewer

"A Post Apocalyptic Page Turner"

1966 has been a bad year for retired Army officer Jack Taggart. Still reeling from the loss of his wife and daughter, a visit to his doctor reveals the worst possible news: cancer. Going in for surgery, he is uncertain if he can, or even should, face the fight for his life. When he wakes up to find over three hundred years have passed, an entirely new set of challenges lay before him. Now he must fight to save a devastated world and the few people who remain on this scorched planet. His first battle: to figure out where he is, how he got here, and how it all ties back to the Freezer, a 20th century underground military facility that could very well be the key to the future of humankind.

319 pages, with a 4.5-star rating from 21 reviews.





Heart Grow Fonder, by Cristy Rey. (Still 0.99?)

"How can you do justice to this? I felt the sadness and pain ooze of the pages. The spiral of darkness that has consumed myself before, is written in front of me. Yet the growth and joy that overcomes it all shines like the moon on a dark night. I am not sure if you can tell how much I loved this tale." -- Heidi, at Momma Says Read

Wrong place. Wrong time. Right people.

Jessie Bravo knows what’s wrong with her life; she just doesn’t know what to do about it. Eleven years ago, she saved Tyler Cantrell from getting his ass kicked by gay-bashing high school jocks. Since, they’ve been the closest of friends. Years later, Jessie circled the drain of chronic depression, spiraling out of control, and it was Tyler’s turn to save her. Who knew her best friend would become a Hollywood A-lister? Though Jessie credits Tyler for keeping her together, living in the shadow of her best friend’s celebrity isn’t all it’s cut out to be. It’s up to Jessie to figure out what she has to do to be happy: get better or get lost.

Stardom is on the horizon for British television actor Boyd Kerrington. He’s starring opposite Tyler Cantrell in an American feature film sure to blow his career out the water. For all the years he’s focused on his career, however, he’s settled in his personal life. That is, until he meets Tyler’s best friend, Jessie. Jessie is refreshingly cool, passionate, and compelling…but she’s also complicated. Worse yet, she’s not interested in remaining in the celebrity stratosphere, even for her lifelong friend.

Perfect Standalone Novel for Readers Who Enjoy: Strong female protagonists and independent women; contemporary women’s fiction; realistic romance; books about adult friendships, family, and self-discovery; emotional stories with happy endings (HEA).

178 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 22 reviews.
