Save today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"Very well written, good characters (and bad), the author really brings the personalities to life so well. I would recommend this book. I'm glad I read it. It's good to be reminded of strength of character and standards to live by." -- Amazon Reviewer

Were you there? Many of us were.The embers of hate and bigotry had not died. Smoldering beneath the ashes of a hundred years, they glowed dim but hot, waiting to be fanned into flaming life. Set in the 1960’s during the time of school desegregation, ‘Dying Embers’ is a story of love, hate, terrible tragedy and immense courage. It is a story of growing up. 

Six young people cling to their friendship while the war of racial bigotry rages around them. They mature and learn life’s lessons as the society and culture in which they live is painfully remolded. Their world is a world of contradiction. Good people with bad ideas born out of tradition are forced to make choices that will alter their universe, sending it spinning in directions they had never imagined. They are forced to confront those whose hatred was born out of ignorance and self-loathing. 


A young man who had never known friendship learns it in an uncommon way from an unlikely source. Together, they learn that the bonds of friendship have no color.

Maturing can be a difficult process for the young. For the traditions and culture of an entire society, it can be, it was, excruciatingly painful.

Murder in Calico Gold: A Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery (Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery Series Book 6), by Dianne Harman. (Still 0.99?)

"Dianne writes the most entertaining books, and Calico Gold is no exception. Wonderful mystery with Sheriff Mike and Kelley, with such great scenery on a ranch, no less. You can't go wrong with these books, for a light hearted, no blood and gore, no naughty language, no "rolling in the hay", but there is love there! And you will find some of the most delicious recipes, I gain weight with every book!" -- Amazon Reviewer

Six time 'Amazon All Star Author' comes out with another book in the best selling Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery Series.

Kelly and her husband, Sheriff Mike, take a trip to the small town of Calico Gold, California, after his elderly Aunt Agnes calls and tells him she needs his help and expertise.

The day after Mike finds out Aunt Agnes has made him the sole beneficiary of her large estate, including the Robertson Ranch and the beautiful Queen Anne house on it, she’s murdered.

Aunt Agnes was revered by many of the town residents, but she had her enemies as well. The list of suspects includes a local judge, a real estate developer, a nearby rancher next whose cattle desperately need water from Aunt Agnes’ property, a Vietnam vet who’s recently been evicted from the shack on her property, Mike’s newly discovered cousin, and Sheriff Mike himself, since he has the most to gain from her death.

Join Kelly, Mike, and their dogs Rebel and Lady, as they work to clear Mike’s name and bring the murderer to justice.

This is book #6 in the popular Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery Series. As in the others, there’s plenty of food, dogs, and recipes. To find out more about Dianne and her books, go to www.dianneharman.com.

Neanderthal Seeks Human (Knitting in the City Book 1), by Penny Reid. (Still free?)

"It's about time that smart became sexy in the fiction world!" -- Page Trotter Book Review

From the USA Today Bestselling author of 'Truth or Beard', this is a full-length, 110k word novel is the first book in the Knitting in the City series.

There are three things you need to know about Janie Morris: 1) She is incapable of engaging in a conversation without volunteering TMTI (Too Much Trivial Information), especially when she is unnerved, 2) No one unnerves her more than Quinn Sullivan, and 3) She doesn't know how to knit.

After losing her boyfriend, apartment, and job in the same day, Janie Morris can't help wondering what new torment fate has in store. To her utter mortification, Quinn Sullivan- aka Sir McHotpants- witnesses it all then keeps turning up like a pair of shoes you lust after but can't afford. The last thing she expects is for Quinn- the focus of her slightly, albeit harmless, stalkerish tendencies- to make her an offer she can't refuse.

403 pages, with a 4.6-star rating from 1,118 reviews.
