Baby City: An Inside Look into Labor & Delivery, by Freida McFadden. (Still 0.99?)

"Freida McFadden provides another humorous look into the dynamics of medical training with "Baby City." If you enjoyed McFadden's first novel "The Devil Wears Scrubs," you'll love "Baby City." It explores a few poignant weeks in the life of an OB/GYN resident and her relationships with both colleagues and patients. The main character Emily provides a bitingly funny narrative of life in Baby City. I really liked reading her self-depracating and cynical take on things. There were a few intense, dramatic scenes about what can go wrong with birth, and they were written masterfully. This was an easy fast read. I love McFadden's writing style and highly recommend this book." -- Amazon Reviewer

There are only three things in this world that are certain: death, taxes, and babies.

Nobody knows this truth better than Emily McCoy, a third year resident working in Baby City, the affectionate nickname for the busy Labor and Delivery unit at a New York City hospital. On a typical day in Baby City, Emily delivers more babies than the number of hours of sleep she manages to squeeze in that night. And definitely more than the number of dates she's been on since she started her training in OB/GYN two years earlier.

As Emily works tirelessly to safely herald baby after baby after baby (after baby) into the world, she becomes well acquainted with the three hard facts of Baby City:

1) Babies never come when you want them to.

2) Babies always come when you don't want them to.

3) You don't know who your true friends are until your baby is sliding down the birth canal.

KIDNAPPED COWBOY (Captured Hearts Series Book 1), by Lindsey Brookes. (Still free?)

"I loved this book and all the characters! It was steamy and unpredictable with mystery, charm and hilarity. How can you go wrong with a hot cowboy and a quirky redhead, very good book! I'd recommend it to anyone who loves a great cowboy romance." -- Amazon Reviewer

BOOK #1 IN THE CAPTURED HEARTS SERIES

Kidnapped Cowboy - After countless attempts to speak with the owner of the retreat for troubled teens she runs on the outskirts of Lone Tree, Montana, Caitlin Myers resorts to kidnapping Brandon ‘The Ogre of Lone Tree’ Barnes in a desperate attempt to change his mind about turning Stoney Brook into a vacation resort for the wealthy.

Retired rodeo star, Dalton Barnes, gets the surprise of his life when he’s abducted by a soft-spoken female with a ‘gun’ and taken to the retreat his family owns. He soon learns she’s kidnapped the wrong cowboy by mistake. She wanted his brother. Things go from bad to worse when a late spring snowstorm strands them together at the cabin. But it’s during their snow-in that Dalton learns why Caitlin has gone to such lengths to save Stoney Brook. Having had issues with his older brother himself and a not so happy past, Dalton promises to do what he can to help her.

When confronted Brandon tells Dalton he’ll hold off on his plans for the retreat, but only if Dalton agrees to stick around and help run it. Keeping his promise to Caitlin, Dalton agrees and what starts out as a common goal to turn the troubled teens’ lives around that summer ends up turning theirs around as well. Can a man who has always avoided putting down roots and a woman with a deep-seated fear of abandonment hang on to the happiness they’ve found together? Or will the past return to threaten their newfound love?

Love, laughter and a heartwarming read…

Extensis Vitae, by Gregory Mattix. (Still free?)

"The action sequences are great and there's a good flow to the fights; they felt very brutal, but still realistic (Reznik outnumbered by a brutal gang of killers was particularly intense and really pulled me into the action). Another real stand-out is the futuristic technology which feels like the natural next step for some current technology. The "body-armor" was a really cool idea and I can't wait to see where the author goes next with it! In short, I would highly recommend this book to action and sci-fi fans looking for a smart, solid book with plenty of awesome high-tech ideas and pulse-pounding action." -- Amazon Reviewer

Michael Reznik is a soldier who wakes up in a mysterious underground bunker, with a technologically advanced body he doesn't recognize. The people around him have cast aside fighting and warfare. They haven't needed them--until now.



Reznik is charged with tracking down a band of ruthless killers and finding a kidnapped doctor. He finds himself honor-bound to do what is right for the people who brought him back from the dead. A peaceful people are depending on him to do what is right. Can he live up to their expectations, even when he finds out that his new body has an expiration date?



Extensis Vitae is a gritty, post-apocalyptic science fiction adventure.

Played to Death: A Scott Drayco Mystery (Scott Drayco Mystery Series Book 1), by BV Lawson. (Still free?)

"I love a good mystery, well-plotted and well-written. And that is exactly what we have here. It features Scott Drayco, former concert pianist until an arm injury sidelined his career, former FBI man until he couldn't take the paperwork any more, and now a P.I. of sorts. If you love mysteries, you will love this one." -- Amazon Reviewer

A Shamus Award Finalist and Named Best Mystery in the 2015 Next Generation Indie Book Awards

Still suffering nightmares from a case that ended tragically, brilliant freelance crime consultant Scott Drayco considers retiring from crime solving altogether. When a former client bequeaths Drayco a rundown Opera House in a Virginia seaside town, he figures he'll arrange for a quick sale of the place while nursing his battered soul in a peaceful setting near the shore.

What he doesn't count on is finding a dead body on the Opera House stage with a mysterious "G" carved into the man's chest. With hopes for a quick sale dashed and himself a suspect in the murder, Drayco digs into very old and very dangerous secrets to solve the crime and clear his name. Along the way, Drayco must dodge a wary sheriff, hostility over coastal development, and the seductive wife of a town councilman - before the tensions explode into more violence and he becomes the next victim.

Praise for BV's Mysteries in Crimetime:

"Lawson uses the gothic features of the abandoned Opera House to great effect, creating an atmospheric background for the crimes and the solving of them, all of it accompanied with music that's almost like another character. The pace never sagged and it kept me enthralled." - Long and Short Reviews

"Lawson's book was so good, I read it twice from beginning to end...The citizens of Cape Unity are as diverse and multi-layered as any person living in the large cities, and Lawson portrayed them splendidly." - Reader's Favorite Reviews

"The storyline here is nicely structured, and creatively ties together two murder mysteries, which occurred decades apart. The small town setting is ideal, the lead character engaging, and the supporting cast interesting and diverse. Overall, a solid start to this series." - Omnimystery News

"A nice tight mystery in a realistic setting. Totally enjoyable." - Terrie Farley Moran, national bestselling author of the Read 'Em and Eat Mystery Series

"Now this story was close to brilliance...The plot was fast, dark and thrilling." - IHeartReading.net

All in all, an excellent read for lovers of quality mystery fiction." - Jacqueline Seewald, author of The Inferno Collection
