Spirit: young love, old secrets, and a girl caught in between (Spirit series, Book 1), by Jodi LaPalm. (Still free?)

"Couldn't put it down for anything. I fell in love with Ellie and Reese in their own relationship and only wanted the best for them as much as they wanted it. [...] This was just a fantastic read for me. Thank you so much for allowing me to read your book. It was well worth it." -- Amazon reviewer

Young love. Old secrets. A girl caught in between.

In SPIRIT, a woman seeks freedom from the boundaries of her small town and overbearing mother. Yet, as the prospect of independence looms near, she discovers leaving the only life she has known may not prove easy, particularly when love is one of the ties to be severed.

At sixteen, Ellie saw things other people could not. By eighteen, she saw things as they really were. And yet, it would take years before Ellie could see that a Spirit, if willing, could never truly be broken.

With senior year in high school underway, all Ellie Duncan can think of is the day she will finally break free from the confines of her small Colorado town and overbearing mother. When she meets a mysterious new boy and uncovers secrets of a local Indian legend, however, Ellie soon realizes her life and the people around her are not as they appear and events of the past may push her toward a future she never wanted.

Closure: Jack Randall #1, by Randall Wood. (Still free?)

"A highly enjoyable story for anyone who enjoys FBI thrillers. The characters are all wonderfully developed throughout the book and not just through the authors short flashbacks, but through the way they interact with each other. The style of the writing, with quick changes from one character's point of view to another gives readers a true visualization of each scene and each perception. Whether it was the author's intent or not, I felt a little like a sniper surveying each scene because of the way the story was written." -- Amazon reviewer

**** Security, book four of the Jack Randall series, is now available. ****

When a prominent lawyer is shot while waiting at a suburban stop sign it sets off a nation-wide manhunt for an elusive killer. Special Agent Jack Randall of the FBI finds himself appointed to track down and stop the shooter. Not by his superiors, but by the killer himself.

As more bodies fall the shooter takes his message to the press, earning the support of the public with his choice of targets and confounding the FBI at every turn. From the desert of Nevada to the urban jungle of New York City, Jack and his team follow the trail of bodies and haunting messages left behind by the killer. With the pressure to find him mounting on Jack, the assassin’s crimes grow bolder, and his message more sinister and closer to home.

It becomes clear to Jack that in order to find the shooter, he may have to look inside his own past, and become the man he was years ago.

The Scythe (The Mafia Trilogy Book 3), by Jonas Saul. (Still free?)

"I liked the whole trilogy. Lots of action. Jonas keeps the story moving." -- Amazon reviewer

In Book One, The Kill, the Italian Mafia go after the wrong man.
In Book Two, The Blade, the Gambino Family do it again.
In Book Three, The Scythe, the Russian Mafia have different plans. 


They want to take over Toronto, a territory so large it was previously thought to be too big for one family. But Darwin Kostas and his wife, Rosina, stand in the way.
 

As a peace offering to the Italians and the Chinese, the Russians intend to execute Darwin. First, they have to catch him, but using his wife as bait is not enough.

While the Russians attempt to organize a meeting of rival families where Darwin will be terminated, something the Italians tried twice and failed, Darwin realizes he is on his own.
With the FBI not able to help and his wife in the hands of the Mafia, Darwin decides the only way to win this war is to kill them all.


Darwin fights the Russians in the biggest Mafia war Toronto has ever seen in The Scythe, Book Three of the Mafia Trilogy, the final installment.

Grounded (The Grounded Trilogy Book 1), by G.P. Ching. (Still free?)

"I am seriously impressed with how the author took the simplistic Amish life and combined it with a futuristic, almost dystopian story line as seamlessly as she did. I highly recommend it." -- Crafty Cauldron

Faith kept me plain. Science made me complicated.

Book 1 in the Grounded Trilogy

My name is Lydia Troyer. Growing up in Hemlock Hollow, my life has always been simple. Things in my community haven’t changed much in over three hundred years, since the time my Amish ancestors came to what is now the Green Republic. I milk my cow by hand, make fresh bread every morning, and hope to be courted by Jeremiah, a boy I’ve known since childhood.

When my father falls ill, the English doctor says a hospital outside the wall can heal him. Jeremiah convinces me to go on rumspringa, to experience the outside world as an Englisher in order to be closer to my father during his recovery. Others have gone before me. They claim it’s an adventure. But adventure turns to horror as an ordinary light switch thrusts me into a new world, and revelations about my personal history make me question everything I believe. 

All my life I’ve worked to be simple. I can’t pretend anymore. Nothing about me is simple.

407 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 148 reviews.
