The Death Card: A Liz Lucas Cozy Mystery, by Dianne Harman. (Still free?)

"Dianne Harman is one of my favorite authors and she’s done it again with this new Liz Lucas Cozy Mystery. Police Chief Seth Williams needs her help! Who murdered his deputy Leroy? It’s a whirlwind of page turning to find out what will happen next; tarot cards and a psychic are added to the mix and what a ride! Well-written characters round out a brilliant cast of characters. Not to give out spoilers, I will just say this series is a must read for all mystery lovers. And of course, there are the delicious recipes added at the end of the book, and a special bonus of another book regarding money and success! High marks for this one!" -- Amazon Reviewer

Seven time Amazon All Star Author with her third book in the best selling Liz Lucas Cozy Mystery Series.

Seth Williams, the bumbling and incompetent police chief of Red Cedar, calls Liz Lucas and asks her to help him solve the murder of his deputy, Leroy. He’s worried he might be a suspect because Leroy was going to run against him in the upcoming police chief election. His alibi is that he was getting a tarot card reading from Madame Dika when the murder occurred, but she vehemently denies that the reading ever occurred.

Liz and her protective dog, Winston, follow numerous and sometimes conflicting clues as they try to discover who killed Leroy. Was it the tarot card reader, Madame Dika, who had served time in prison for a psychic scam involving jewelry? Her brother, Anton, who has ties to a Southeastern European stolen credit card ring? Tom Rice, an ex-felon who had been in prison for wife-beating? Donna, Leroy’s ex-wife, who wants to get the back alimony Leroy owed her by making a claim against his life insurance. Or Ratface, Leroy’s bookie? And yes, it might even be the police chief himself.

And what about the relationship between Liz and Roger, the San Francisco lawyer she’s in love with. He gives her advice and helps her solve the case, but will their long-distance relationship turn into something more?

As usual, mouth-watering recipes are included. To find out more about Dianne and her books, go to www.DianneHarman.com.

Logos: A Novel of Christianity's Origin, by John Neeleman. (Still 0.99?)

"Logos was a very enjoyable book to read, full of rich Biblical history and characters. Historical fiction has always been a favorite of mine. Mr. Neeleman certainly did his research in describing the country and the people; you can almost picture yourself there. I had never heard of the Sicarii before, so it was very interesting to read about them. I would definitely read more books by this author." -- Amazon Reviewer

While novels and cinema have repeatedly sought after the historical Jesus, until now none have explored what may be a more tantalizing mystery—the Christian story’s anonymous creator. Logos is a literary bildungsroman about the man who will become the anonymous author of the original Gospel, set amid the kaleidoscopic mingling of ancient cultures. Logos is a gripping tale of adventure, a moving love story, and a novel of ideas. None of this should be regarded as out of place or incompatible in a novel about Christianity’s origin. Dissent, anarchism, and revolution—and incipient Christianity was no less these things than the Bolshevik, the French or the American revolutions—inevitably have involved ideas, adventure, and romance.
In A.D. 66, Jacob is an educated and privileged Greco-Roman Jew, a Temple priest in Jerusalem, and a leader of Israel’s rebellion against Rome. When Roman soldiers murder his parents and his beloved sister disappears in a pogrom led by the Roman procurator, personal tragedy impels Jacob to seek blood and vengeance. The rebellion he helps to foment leads to more tragedy, personal and ultimately cosmic: his wife and son perish in the Romans’ siege of Jerusalem, and the Roman army destroys Jerusalem and the Temple, and finally extinguishes Israel at Masada. Jacob is expelled from his homeland, and he wanders by land and sea, bereft of all, until he arrives in Rome. He is still rebellious, and in Rome he joins other dissidents, but now plotting ironic vengeance, not by arms, but by the power of an idea.
Paul of Tarsus, Josephus, the keepers of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and even Yeshua, the historical Jesus himself, play a role in Jacob’s tumultuous and mysterious fortunes. But it is the women who have loved him who help him to appreciate violence’s dire cycle.

A Biltmore Christmas (Romancing America), by Diane T. Ashley. (Still free?)

"Leave it to Diane Ashley and Aaron McCarver to create yet another charming historical. Capitalizing on the Biltmore legacy, Ashley and McCarver ground the reader in a series of accidents surrounding two lovable (and soon to be in love) charcters, Melissa and Ned. From the fascination of the horseless carriage to a young woman's unorthodox gift, I was delighted from start to finish. I look forward to more." -- Amazon Reviewer


Explore the luxuries of America’s largest home through the eyes of the fiction Bradford sisters. Having been orphaned, they each secure work and lodging at the Biltmore estate. Charity, a laundress; Peggy, an assistant cook, Selma, a chambermaid; and Melissa, a stable “boy” each experience adventures in employment and romance that culminate at Christmastime when the Vanderbilts’ hospitality is at its grandest level.

Hidden Deep: Book 1 of The Hidden Trilogy (The HiddenTrilogy), by Amy Patrick. (Still free?)

"Hidden Deep is a very unique tale about a girl who reunites with her very unusual hero from her childhood. Ms. Patrick makes you root for the young couple even in the face of devastating odds! And, in the end, she'll leave you wanting more. Great beginning to a series! I look forward to reading the next book in the series." -- Amazon Reviewer

He isn't supposed to even talk to a human, much less fall in love with one...

Sixteen-year-old Ryann Carroll has just run into the guy who saved her life ten years ago. You might think she'd be happy to see him again. Not exactly. She's a bit underdressed (as in skinny-dipping) and he's not supposed to exist.

After her father's affair, all Ryann wants is to escape the family implosion fallout and find a little peace. She also wouldn't mind a first date that didn't suck, but she's determined not to end up like her mom: vulnerable, betrayed, destroyed. Ryann's just moved into her grandma's house in rural Mississippi, the same place where ten years earlier she became lost in the woods overnight and nearly died.

She's still irresistibly drawn to those woods. There she encounters the boy who kept her from freezing to death that long ago winter night and was nowhere to be seen when rescuers arrived. He's still mysterious, but now all grown-up and gorgeous, too. And the more she's with him, the greater the threat he poses to Ryann's strict policy-- never want someone more than he wants you.

Seventeen-year-old Lad knows the law of his people all too well: Don't get careless and Don't get caught.
It's allowed his race to live undetected in this world for thousands of years, mentioned only in flawed and fading folklore. Lad's never been able to forget about Ryann since that night ten years ago. When he sees her again, his fascination re-ignites and becomes a growing desire that tempts him to break all the rules. He's not even supposed to talk to a human, much less fall in love with one.

And the timing is atrocious. The Assemblage is coming, the rift between the Light and Dark is widening. Lad may have to trade his own chance at happiness to keep the humans, especially Ryann, blissfully ignorant and safe.
