TSUNAMI STORM, by David Capps. (Still free?)

"This is a fast-paced read that kept me hooked into the story from page one. This novel really explores aspects of technology and where that technology could take our world and our country. It was a really compelling read." -- Amazon reviewer

The US has launched secret weapons of mass destruction on other countries. And awaits what might be cataclysmic retaliation…

China is devastated by an 8.0M earthquake that leaves 70,000 people dead with hundreds of thousands injured and untold property destroyed. The Chinese government soon learns that it was no natural disaster, but rather an orchestrated attack by the American government using their High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) weapon. China ceases foreign relations with America and creates their own version of the weapon in retaliation. They plan to attack the US by sending a submarine with mini nuke mines to create a massive rupture of the Cascadia Subduction Zone.

But what neither China nor the US knows is that the attack on China was an unauthorized assault perpetrated by a US Navy Vice Admiral. Because of his arrogance and pride, more innocent people may have to pay with their lives.

One of the many coastal towns in peril is Dolphin Beach, Oregon. The new mayor Willa McBride tries to protect her townspeople while her sister, the Senator Elizabeth Bechtel, tries to uncover who engineered the attack on China. What is unclear is whether the Senator’s goal is aimed toward the greater good or for her own political gain.

To protect the US coast, the government sends out the submarine USS Massachusetts to locate and destroy the Chinese sub. Now it seems the only protection for the American coast is one US submarine and its heroic crew against a truly catastrophic event...

The Guestbook (Madrona Island Series 1), by Andrea Hurst. (Still 0.99?)

"What an exciting surprise! The Guestbook by Andrea Hurst is jam packed with hidden treasures along with a compelling story. The descriptions of the flowers, the mountains, the sky, the animals, and the FOOD were poetic and made me feel like I could actually smell and taste the foods, or feel the nature around me. I personally love Lilly's story of recovery after a bad marriage." -- Amazon reviewer

EVERYONE REMEMBERS THEIR FIRST LOVE...
BUT SOMETIMES IT'S THE SECOND LOVE THAT LASTS

"Evocative and heartfelt, The Guestbook is the profound story of one woman's journey toward hope, renewal and a second chance at love on a lush Pacific Northwest island. Curl up with your favorite cup of cocoa and enjoy."
~Anjali Banerjee - author of Imaginary Men and Haunting Jasmine said about this women's fiction romance

This book weaves together the heart of Nicholas Sparks, the romance of Nora Roberts, and the charm of Debbie Macomber.

Fleeing her picture-perfect marriage among the privileged set of Brentwood and the wreckage of a failed marriage, Lily Parkins decides to move to the only place that still holds happy memories, her grandmother’s old farmhouse. The lush and majestic setting of the Pacific Northwest calls to her and offers a place of refuge and perhaps renewal. Her grandmother has passed away, leaving the Madrona Island Bed & Breakfast Inn to Lily.

Left with only an old guestbook as her guide–a curious book full of letters, recipes, and glimpses into her family history–Lily is determined to embrace her newfound independence and recreate herself, one page at a time. With the help of the quirky island residents she has befriended, she slowly finds the strength to seek out happiness on her own terms. But as soon as she has sworn off men and is standing on her own two feet, Lily meets Ian, the alluring artist who lives next door, and her new life is suddenly thrown off course. The last thing she wants to do right now is to open her heart to another man.

Ultimately, Lily must decide if it’s worth giving up her soul for security or risking everything to follow her heart in this romantic love story.

The Guestbook is the first book in the Madrona Island Series. www.andreahurst-author.com TEA & COMFORT - book two is available April 7, 2015

Armoires and Arsenic: A Darling Valley Cozy Mystery with Women Sleuths Olivia M. Granville and Tuesday (A Darling Valley Mystery Book 1), by Cassie Page. (Still free?)

"An excellent mystery with fun characters, fashion, antiques and suspense with a little bit of romance thrown in." -- Amazon reviewer

Pick up your Bonus Gift with this brand new cozy mystery series featuring women sleuths, Olivia M. Granville and her friend, Tuesday. Note that this is a newly edited version with a new cover.

What would you do if you sent a $30,000 piece of furniture out for repair and it came back with a deadly package inside?

That’s the dilemma facing Olivia M. Granville, OMG to her friends and foes, as though the award-winning architect, interior designer and antiques dealer didn’t have enough on her hands.

Olivia, a transplanted Los Angeleno, is the newest resident of Darling Valley, a picturesque town just outside of San Francisco and home of the DV Bills, as Olivia calls the largest concentration of billionaires anywhere in the country. Like the Astors and Rockefellers of old who outdid each other building humongous summer cottages in Newport, the DV Bills outdo each other with eye-popping piles of sticks stuffed with museum quality art hidden in the Marin hills. It was Olivia’s plan to make a killing decorating them.

What Olivia liked best about moving to sleepy Darling Valley from LA was the absence of crime. No worrying about parking her car on a side street because it might get stolen. Nobody slipping sticky fingers into her purse and lifting her wallet while an accomplice distracted her at the sale rack at Neiman’s. Not having to trip over a dead body blocking the doorway of her office building while the LAPD took their sweet time locking down the crime scene. But the best part of living in Darling Valley was never having to find herself sitting across from Brooks at a dinner party while he romanced his new girlfriend and referred to Olivia as a client.

What she hated about Darling Valley was the 400 miles between its pristine mansions and gritty but happening LA. Not far enough to save her from becoming Detective Gurmeet Richards’ lead suspect in a killing of a different kind. Yes, that’s Detective Richards of the devastating velvety eyes.

Olivia should have remembered the advice her tea-leaves reading friend, Tuesday, gave her before she left LA. You get what you resist.

Watch what happens when Olivia and Tuesday get to work proving her innocence amid the opulence and deception of her, idyllic but deadly new home.

290 pages, with a 3.9-star rating from 141 reviews.

Ethan Justice: Origins (Ethan Justice - A Private Investigator Series Book 1), by Simon Jenner. (Still free?)

"The evil dude at the center of the story, Fisher, is also well fleshed out, a pleasure to see. So often in thrillers the antagonists are two-dimensional cartoon figures." -- Frederick Lee Brooke, Author of The Annie Ogden Mysteries

In the morning, he's struggling to remember. By the evening, he's struggling to survive. John Smith's risk avoidance policy just expired!

Waking up beside the gorgeous Savannah Jones, John is shocked to learn she was for hire, and he can't pay the price - a thousand pounds or broken legs. In desperation, he turns to best friend, Mark, for the money. Only one problem - Mark has a dagger in his back.

John and Savannah are plunged into a dangerous world where wits and adrenaline are their only weapons and trust in each other their only certainty. As the body count mounts, they discover Mark wasn't the person John thought, and his terrifying invention may well end up killing thousands, John and Savannah included.

A race to recover the missing invention pits the unlikely pairing against ex-SAS psychopath, Gregory Fisher, a man who will stop at nothing and kill anyone in his way to wreak revenge against the Government who stole his livelihood.

When Smith and Jones team up, the result is explosive.

247 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 172 reviews.
