Half a World Away: Living the Dream in a Land Down Under, by Alistair McGuinness. (Still 0.99?)

"An honest and, at times, poignant recollection of the adventures of an Englishman abroad, I enjoyed being half a world away too in reading this book. With an easy style, Alistair paves the way for all those seeking new challenges from the humdrum routine that so many find ourselves in. The self deprecation of a man who isn't trying to justify his choices is refreshing and I heartily recommend this book." -- Amazon Reviewer

Three things happened simultaneously. The shark circled, Alistair swam frantically towards safety and his family waved excitedly from the shore, oblivious to the danger. As he scrambled onto the beach, Alistair realised that Australia was proving to be an exciting country.
Months earlier, the migration seminars had promised endless summers, balmy evenings and a laidback lifestyle. But what was it really like? Thirteen years after arriving Down Under, Alistair has written a collection of short stories about living, travelling and working in Australia.
During this time he has been on walkabout with Aborigines, worked on remote mine sites, witnessed the urban sprawl of modern Australia and forged new friendships in a world half a world away from the one he left behind. The stories uncover the yearning to migrate to Australia, the exhilaration of travelling to the outback and the realisation that emigration has changed his life forever.

Parallax View: A Tracie Tanner Thriller (Tracie Tanner Thrillers Book 1), by Allan Leverone. (Still free?)

"I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I don't write a lot of reviews, but I couldn't resist on this one. The writer did a great job of pulling me into the story. It had, I thought some nice twists. The characters were fun to get to know. And, I enjoyed the book. Get it, you won't be sorry. I am now going to check out some of his other books." -- Amazon Reviewer

If you're a fan of Mitch Rapp, brought to life by the late Vince Flynn, or of the Brad Thor patriot Scot Harvath, meet your newest hero, Tracie Tanner:

It's spring, 1987, late in the Cold War, and CIA clandestine operations agent Tracie Tanner is tasked with what should be a relatively simple mission: deliver a secret communique from Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev to U.S. President Ronald Reagan.

After smuggling the document out of East Germany, Tracie believes she is in the clear. She's wrong. A shadowy cabal is work, people who will stop at nothing to prevent the explosive information contained in the letter from reaching the White House.

Soon, Tanner is knee-deep in airplane crashes and murder, paired up with a young Maine air traffic controller and on the run for their lives, unsure who she can trust at CIA, but committed to completing her mission, no matter the cost...

"This is a well thought out time travel thriller that provides a plausible method of time travel, with just enough "science" in the fiction that you truly believe it could happen.

Pulled, by A.L. Jackson. (Still free?)

"Wow. This story was exactly what I've been dying to read in a romance. It was heartbreakingly beautiful. The writing was flawless and intense. It flowed so beautifully, it was never tedious, and I was never bored. Instead I was captivated, enthralled. I absolutely loved Melanie and Daniel, especially the almost supernatural bond they seemed to have. From the first moment I was completely swept away by this achingly romantic tale. I simply loved it." -- Amazon Reviewer

Melanie Winters and Daniel Montgomery shared a love most only dream of, a love they believed bonded them together for life.

When their world is shattered by the tragic loss of their daughter, overwhelming grief and misguided guilt distorts the truth, and their relationship ends in uncertainty and unanswered questions.

For nine years, they drift through life, each unable to forget the one who holds the strings to their heart. In an attempt to escape the pain of her past, Melanie finds herself trapped in a loveless marriage, while Daniel loses himself in a career that means nothing without Melanie by his side.

Now, when their lives again intersect, neither can deny the connection they felt so long ago. But will the power that drew them together be enough to heal the wounds from their past, and will they have the courage to overcome the insecurities and fears that threaten to keep them apart?

Pulled is a story of attraction and separation, of destiny and duty, of a love so strong it refuses to give up even when all others have.

"Okay, this one did it for me in a big way. I'm an angst-lover. And by that I mean, I'm a Thoughtless, Beautiful Disaster, Love Unscripted, Slammed, Fifty Shades of Everything, kind of reader. But there's gotta be an HEA. And not a half-done HEA but a real yeah-this-story-has-been-agonizing-but-look-it-was-all-worth-it HEA. So, that said, I earnestly recommend this book. If you're like me, you'll like this. Enjoy!" LitJunkie
