Ten Days In Paradise, by Linda Abbott. (Still free?)

"A fantastic, thought-provoking debut novel." -- Peg Glover, author of the upcoming Discover New Authors, Reviewers & Great Reads


Vacationing on beautiful Sanibel Island off Florida’s Gulf Coast, Ellen Bennett has never felt so guilty—or more alive.
This wasn’t the way things were supposed to turn out. The 45-year-old successful career woman, wife and mother traveled to the island paradise for solitude and a much-needed break from her family. But a chance encounter with a fellow traveler sparks a powerful attraction, forcing Ellen to make a decision that could change her life forever.
Against an idyllic backdrop of white sand beaches, azure waters and lush palms, Ellen struggles to subdue a firestorm of emotions. David, the father of three young children, confronts the fault lines in his own marriage that lead to a stunning revelation.
Their relationship unfolds as David’s family gathers on Sanibel to celebrate their parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. Tensions are running high. David’s mother is worried about her husband’s strange behavior and inexplicable memory lapses. His sisters, Julia, an over-achieving corporate exec, and Maggie, a hard-partying renegade who just announced she’s gay and leaving her husband, haven’t spoken for months.
On the island, a small congregation battles to save a beloved seaside chapel to make room for a lavish oceanfront mansion. Ellen takes up the cause when she meets 76-year-old Liz Taylor, a vivacious widow with a sparkling wit and a secret passion of her own.
A compelling and heartfelt novel, Ten Days in Paradise masterfully explores the inner landscapes of marriage and family relationships.

Winner Lose All: A Spy vs Spy Thriller, by William F. Brown. (Still 0.99?)

Save today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"An exciting, riveting read that explores courage and treachery, love and fear. Another crackerjack novel of World War II, following last year's Amongst My Enemies. The reader is right there, carried along for one wild, breathtaking ride." -- Amazon reviewer

Winning a war is the easy part. It is winning the peace and insuring you can win the next one that is infinitely harder. As WWII ground to it's inevitable, bloody end in the rubble of Nazi Germany, the smart, hard men in America, England, and Russia turn their eyes to the next 'cold' one. They know that the future belongs to whomever can grab the new rockets, jet fighters, long-range bombers, synthetic fuels and other 'wonder weapons' that Hitler unleashed upon them. Those will shape the balance of world power for decades to come. It is also the story of the torrid but impossible romance between Ed Scanlon, a brilliant, young, American OSS agent and Hanni Steiner, the gritty, street-smart leader of the communist resistance cell in Leipzig. They now find themselves on opposite ends of an international tug of war over the plans for Germany's revolutionary Me-262 jet fighter and the scientists who designed and built it. To succeed, they must not only outwit each other, they must stay one-step ahead of Otto Dietrich, the sadistic Gestapo Chief of Leipzig, who has plans of his own. The stakes in this military political thriller could not be higher. Once-bitter enemies are tomorrow's allies, old friends cannot to be trusted, and lies, double-dealing, action and adventure, spy versus spy, and treachery are the norm. Driven by the uncompromising dictates of historical characters such as Josef Stalin, Lavrenti Beria, Allen Dulles, Heinrich Himmler, and Winston Churchill, it is succeed or die, and the winner will indeed lose all. Combining the best of action romance and World War II historical fiction, this fast-paced espionage spy thriller will resonate.

321 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 114 reviews.

Save today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"I love Carol's books and this short prequel was no exception. It introduces her new series and I'm really looking forward to reading it after reading this one! The first chapter reels you in with the main character, Sydney, being reluctantly dragged along by her friend onto a boat to retrieve some lost bracelets but they soon realize they are on the wrong boat and they witness a murder! What a way to start a book! What follows is a great story of Sydney being rescued by law enforcement, specifically, Wade, and then all that happens to solve the case in a small Florida town. I really like the characters and the author's writing. I know I will enjoy this series!" -- Amazon reviewer

The Seeds Of A Daisy: The Lily Lockwood Series: Book One (Women's Fiction), by Alison Caiola. (Still 5.99?)

"The book could be categorized as a quick beach read but it's also a novel filled with the stuff of serious subject matter. The novel explores universal themes: love, loss, overcoming difficult circumstances and the path to self-actualization." -- Amazon reviewer

The Lily Lockwood Series: Book One

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.
