Free and Bargain Kindle Books! (Tuesday Dec 15)

In the Dark, by Chris Patchell. (Still 3.99?)

"What an amazing book! It was a real page-turner and once I'd started reading it, I resented any interruption. The characters were well-developed and full of depth making them. The action scenes were extremely detailed, making it easy to imagine them happening. There were times I was actually holding my breath wondering what was going to happen next. If you are looking for a great plot and edge-of-your seat, nail-biting suspense, "In The Dark" is definitely the book for you." -- Amazon Reviewer


Marissa Rooney stands in her daughter’s empty dorm room, a half-used vial of insulin clutched in her trembling hand. Brooke has been missing for days. Her roommate hasn’t seen her since that night in the bar. And if Marissa has Brooke’s insulin, it means that Brooke does not.
But Marissa isn’t alone in her terror. A phantom from her past is lurking in the shadows, waiting in the night, and holding her family captive…
In the dark.
"An edge-of-your-seat suspense novel. It scared the hell out of me. Read it with the lights on!"
~Robert Dugoni - Amazon #1 and New York Times bestselling author of My Sister's Grave

All of Me (The Bridesmaids Club Book 1), by Leeanna Morgan. (Still free?)

"Really good story, very entertaining and certainly holds the attention all the way through. It is a series but it is a stand alone book. The story has a lot of side characters that will probably get their own books. While reading Tess' story you get to know them well enough to want to know how their lives turn out as well. It was a very good story, likable characters, good heroes and smart heroines. A good read and I definitely recommend it." -- Amazon Reviewer

Four friends. Twenty-two bridesmaids' dresses.
One random act of kindness that will change their lives forever.

Tess has given up looking for Mr. Right, but that doesn’t mean she’s given up on love. When she reads a newspaper article about a young couple who've had everything stolen from their home, including four bridesmaids dresses, she knows she has to help.

But by helping the bride, Tess risks exposing a past she doesn't want anyone to know about. She does everything she can to minimize the danger she's in, but she does the one thing guaranteed to destroy everything - she falls in love with the wrong man.

Logan Allen has spent most of his career reporting on the news from around the world. When a letter arrives from Afghanistan, the trauma he's been living with is about to explode back into his life. He betrayed a small Afghan village and Tess thinks he’s betrayed her.

From their first random act of kindness comes an experience Logan and Tess will never forget. And maybe, if they work together, they can create a future that’s better than anything they've left behind.

Flying Lessons: It's never too late to change ..., by H. Lovelyn Bettison. (Still free?)

"It was definitely refreshing to see that love comes in all different shapes, sizes, and of course, ages. This story is about coping with loss and forging a way forward. Henry loses a loving wife and Chandra loses a loving mother when Ava dies. This story also has a little taste of magical realism, an effect that I really loved. This element is where the title of the book comes from. It's subtle but it definitely adds a lot to the story. This is a great book for those who love a subtle love story!" -- Amazon Reviewer

Henry and his adult daughter, Chandra, are haunted by the past. Stuck in a state of mourning, they long to return to a time when the family matriarch was still alive. Chandra misses her mother’s guidance. Henry wishes he could recapture the final precious moments with his wife. Each wonders if they will find happiness in life again, until unexpected relationships shake up their perceptions of reality. Henry’s new friendship with a neighbor blurs the boundaries between the living and the dead, and Chandra starts to see possibilities she’s never noticed before. Flying Lessons is a heartwarming, magical realism novel about relationships, hope, and healing that will stay with you long after you read the last page.

The Chomolungma Diaries: What a commercial Everest expedition is really like (Footsteps on the Mountain travel diaries Book 17), by Mark Horrell. (Still free?)

"I enjoyed this book a great deal. Mr. Horrell wrote in much the same way as I imagined I would write if I were in his place on the expedition. As he said more than once the idea is get up to the summit and get back down safely. He did that and wrote about the journey at the same time. I can only imagine the joy he must have felt upon his return to base camp." -- Amazon Reviewer

Are you tired of reading mountaineering disaster stories which tarnish the reputation of Everest by focusing on all that's negative about climbing it?

Are you longing to read an account that more accurately reflects what a commercial expedition to climb Everest is really like?

You might be forgiven for thinking that Everest has become the playground of glamorous celebrities and multimillionaire businessmen who have difficulty climbing the stairs, never mind a mountain. Many books and news stories about mountaineering disasters leave you thinking that anyone can climb Everest if they pay enough money, and that Sherpas will carry you up if necessary. They conclude that if you put enough of these rich fools together, then tragedy is inevitable.

This is not one of those stories, and it aims to dispel those popular myths surrounding Everest. It does so by telling the true story of an ordinary climber on an ordinary commercial expedition to reach the summit of the world's highest mountain.

The reality is that most Everest climbers are not rich at all. They are normal people who have saved up over many years, climbed many mountains, and made career sacrifices and lifestyle choices along the way.

The Chomolungma Diaries is the journal of Mark Horrell's expedition to climb Everest from the north side in 2012, a year when there were many fatalities on the south side. While media attention was focused on the queues of commercial climbers and the personal tragedies taking place on the other side of the mountain, Mark's team were quietly getting on with the job of preparing to summit from the north. It follows the hopes and the disappointments, the excitement and the boredom, the banter and the arguments of a team of ordinary people preparing for the biggest day of their lives; and it highlights the superhuman efforts of the Sherpas in helping them to achieve their dream

But nothing about Everest is ordinary, and there's more than enough excitement when your life is clipped into a narrow line of cord five miles above the Earth. Those who think Everest is easy have never been up onto the Northeast Ridge and experienced the world's most terrifying ridge walk. This diary will bring you just a little bit closer to that experience.

Ordinary people doing something extraordinary - a refreshing antidote to mountaineering disaster books and movies.

About this series

The Footsteps on the Mountain travel diaries are Mark's expedition journals. They are a lightly-edited version of what he scribbles in his tent each evening after a day in the mountains. They are quick reads, self-edited, and available at a budget price.

Mark's first full-length, commercially-edited book, Seven Steps from Snowdon to Everest, about his journey to becoming an Everest climber, is published in December 2015.
