A spy quit and blackmailed her way out of the business. Now she finds the leverage needed to keep her alive falling apart…

Cassandra Sashakovich quit spying for her country. To do this, she blackmailed the White House to get her boyfriend, Lee Ainsley, released from Gitmo. She also rescued the teenager, Ann Silbee, from homelessness. Now they're safe and so is she. So everything should slowly become normal.

But Lee and Ann hate each other. Worse still, all those she broke and mangled on her mad run to survive want revenge.

Elections and Consequences (Canton County Chronicles Mysteries Book 1), by C.M. Carleton. (Still free?)

"Awesome! A really good plot, excellent characters, and I did not guess the murderer. I love small towns, and this one is nice. Liz is an interesting person. I am so reading more!" -- Amazon reviewer

“The whole series is worth reading. I couldn't put the books down.”—Sara A., Verified Purchaser review referencing entire series (from review of A MODICUM OF THANKS, Canton County Chronicles Mysteries Short Story #2)

Two murders...one winner...

After Assistant Canton County Commonwealth Attorney Kit Babcock reports sleazy attorney Walt Brown for unethical conduct, the money for her position mysteriously dries up.

Facing imminent unemployment, Kit wonders whether she should return to her old job of prosecuting lawyers for ethics violations (where, in fact, she once prosecuted Walt), but that means leaving home. And maybe returning to a position where she got burnt out prosecuting horrible attorneys isn't the best idea.

Then Kit wins a write-in election for Canton Circuit Court Clerk--a write-in election she didn't encourage at all. But on Election Night, the defeated incumbent, Gary Moss, publicly and to her face threatens to sue Kit to keep his office, claiming she must have won by fraud. Kit wonders if the job is worth the lawsuit that will come with it.

As Kit ponders whether she should accept the office, Gary rather inconveniently turns up dead. And while the death seems to be an accident, information soon comes to light that the late Mr. Moss was actually murdered.

And Kit becomes the prime suspect.

Unless the real murderer is discovered, Kit can forget about being the clerk or going back to her old job--not to mention keeping her law license and her freedom.

ELECTIONS AND CONSEQUENCES is the first novel in the Canton County Chronicles Mystery Series by C.M. Carleton.

339 pages, with a 3.9-star rating from 10 reviews.

Forging Divinity, by Andrew Rowe. (Still 3.99?)

"Forging Divinity is an excellent read overall. The story is engaging and unexpected, the characters are well rounded, autonomous, and competent, with each individual character distinct in their impression of the situation and their surroundings than the next, and the setting is uniquely intricate and well thought out. There are a number of aspects that set the book apart from others like it in the genre, not the least of which being the complex (but not complicated) system of magic that the author has instituted, but also for the presence of living gods and established cityscapes. I look forward to the next installation! " -- Amazon reviewer

Some say that in the city of Orlyn, godhood is on sale to the highest bidder. Thousands flock to the city each year, hoping for a chance at immortality.

Lydia Hastings is a knowledge sorcerer, capable of extracting information from anything she touches. When she travels to Orlyn to validate the claims of the local faith, she discovers a conspiracy that could lead to a war between the world's three greatest powers. At the focal point is a prisoner who bears a striking resemblance to the long-missing leader of the pantheon she worships.

Rescuing the prisoner would require risking her carefully cultivated cover - but his execution could mean the end of everything Lydia holds dear.

309 pages, with a 4.0-star rating from 34 reviews.
