A Note Before Dying (A Ghostwriter Mystery Book 6), by C.A. Larmer. (Still 0.99?)

"This is such a great series! Ms Larmer has created such a delightful heroine in Roxy - part Hercule Poirot, part Angelina Jolie, part Bridget Jones. Clever and self aware. Down to earth and a magnet for trouble. And someone you would want to just hang out with. A Note Before Dying continues the twists and keep me engaged from beginning to end. A fantastic read." -- Amazon reviewer

A NOTE BEFORE DYING is the sixth stand-alone mystery in the fun, fast-paced series featuring gutsy ghostwriter Roxy Parker.

With a battered heart and the hots for her next client, Roxy Parker heads to the Byron hinterland, to ghostwrite the life story of rock legend Jed Moody. She may be his biggest fan, but the uber sexy rocker—think Michael Hutchence meets Mick Jagger—has more than his share of enemies, so when he is zapped to death on stage while strumming his Fender Strat, the amateur sleuth can’t help looking at his so-called ‘fans’.

Was Jed Moody murdered by a jilted lover? His jealous wife? An embittered band member? Or a publicist with plenty to hide? Or is it worse than that? Is it the sexy ‘sparkie’ who’s caught Roxy’s eye, the one with the chip on his shoulder and the cute Border Collie cross?

When a sleazy photographer shows up dead soon after, it seems the electrician’s fate is sealed—‘sparkie Sam' has the got the means, the motive, and absolutely no alibi.

In the sixth Ghostwriter Mystery (each one a stand-alone mystery; no cliffhangers to be seen), Roxy is back with a sizzling murder and a soft spot for a country boy with big doe eyes. Determined to prove his innocence, Roxy enlists the help of best friend, Detective Gilda Maltin. The problem is, the more she digs, the more Gilda is convinced that Roxy is making a chilling mistake that will cost the ghostwriter her life!

A Note Before Dying is a fun, fast-paced adventure that shows, yet again, why C.A. Larmer - author of the best-selling Agatha Christie Book Club - is one of epublishing's growing sensations.

I Bring the Fire Part I : Wolves (A Loki Story), by C. Gockel. (Still free?)

"Burns with originality! I warmed-up to this novel quickly. It begins in a delightfully unusual way, and I started to like the main character, Amy Lewis, at once. There was a really nice line of humor threaded through it, and it sported plausible characters with natural behaviors, and interesting events. The concept of a domesticated Loki was hilarious. I was starting to love this author by the end of the book! I recommend it." -- Amazon reviewer


In the middle of America, Amy Lewis is on her way to her grandma's house. She's being pursued by a very bad wolf. Galaxies away Loki is waking up in a prison cell, strangely without a hangover, and with no idea what he's done wrong -- this time anyway. But he does know Thor is hiding something, Odin is up to something wicked, and there seems to be something he's forgotten...

In this urban fantasy tale that is equal parts "Another Fine Myth," "American Gods," and "Once Upon a Time," a very nice midwestern girl and a jaded, mischievous Loki must join forces to outwit gods, elves, magic sniffing cats, and nosy neighbors. If Loki can remember exactly what he's forgotten and Amy can convince him not to be too distracted by Earthly gadgets, her boobs, or three day benders, they just might pull it off...

This first installment of "I Bring the Fire" is for anyone who suspects chaos and mischief makers might have their own redeeming qualities, and anyone who just wants a good fantasy romp through modern Earth, ancient Asgard, and beyond!

Emmaline Waters, This Is Your Life (Serendipity in Love Book 1), by Maggie Bloom. (Still free?)

"Em is a fabulous, lovable enjoyable character. Laugh out loud first chapter! Haven't we all been there, at that kind of interview! I really enjoyed it!" -- Vine Reviewer

Recent college grad Emmaline Waters’s “real life” is shaping up to be a bit too real:

1. Mind-numbing, dead-end job? Check.
2. Aloof, self-absorbed boyfriend? Check.
3. A mountain of debt even Sir Edmund Hillary would have trouble surmounting? Check.

So when Emmaline lands an interview for a food-critic job at the Boston Sunday Times, she’s sure she has (finally!) stumbled onto the road to success. But soon an unexpected detour—in the form of Mark, her high school one-night stand—(re)appears, sending Emmaline careening in a whole new direction.

When the dust settles, will Emmaline have the life of her dreams? Or will her adorable little secret be revealed for every Tom, Dick, and Mark to see?

The Investment, by Douglas Blakeny. (Still 4.99?)

Highly touted college quarterback RJ Robinson is considered to be a worthwhile investment by many people in his life. Ever since he was a child his family, friends, and even adversaries have recognized his potential of one day becoming an NFL star. They’ve all invested in him; some want to see him achieve his dreams, while others view him as an opportunity for profit. RJ must see through the glitz and fake smiles to figure out who’s in his life to support him, and who’s only in it for themselves, even if it means bringing RJ down.

Will RJ live up to the hype, or will he crumble amidst the pressure and end up as just another poor investment?
