The Forty Watt Flowers, by C. Subasic. (Still free?)

"From the prose to the tone, the book draws you in from the start. And the characters are almost impossible not to like—even the ones that provide conflict. The author does a good job painting the picture without telling the reader too much. I was able to sink into the book and attach my imagination to the story in enough places that it became mine for a while." -- Amazon Reviewer

Living in the indie band capital Athens, GA, Trisha decides to start her own pop-punk band. Four young women are brought together and The Forty Watt Flowers are formed.

Rosemarie, on keyboards, has a sex drive as fierce as a tornado. Aline, the singer, is a hermit, scratching out poems in her antebellum mansion. Juanita, on drums, has a poison tongue a little too quick on the draw. Toni, on guitar, made the mistake of heading South to come out of the closet.

In addition to managing her crew of misfits, Trisha struggles to figure out the chaos of her own life. The relationship with Brent is caught in the roller-coaster of his moods. She “lost touch” with her parents two years ago (and they probably still blame her for what happened to her sister).

The Forty Watt Flowers is a novel that gets you tapping your toes. It’s what you create as you wrestle your demons, the hottest, most frightening music you know.

5 stars: “A well-tuned debut novel from a very talented, seasoned writer. She slams home poignant observations like a musician playing finely-tuned instruments.”

5 stars: “C.M. Subasic has created an ensemble of fully dimensional characters who at times you love to hate, and at others you hate to love.”

5 stars: “it's hysterical, fun, tear-jerking, thoughtful, poetic, gritty (as one of the other reviews says), an addictive read I couldn't put down.”

Before he had a chance to blink, she flipped the youth over and tossed him onto the grass, pinning him there with her knee
Dusty Kent knows how to deal with attackers
When a popular young woman is strangled in her home in the seaside village of Murloo, the residents are sure an itinerant surfer who disappeared after the murder is the killer. However, one year later the surfer is still missing and the killer’s identity remains a mystery.

The victim’s family call in investigative journalist Dusty Kent who has an impeccable record in solving the cold cases she writes about. Dusty’s determination to investigate unresolved crime is fuelled by a personal connection through her own family tragedy. However, this case tests Dusty to the limit and she despairs of ever catching the callous killer who seems to be lurking nearby and yet...

A gripping mystery imbued with the ambience of Australia—from the mysterious wood carving found with the body, the captivating characters of a small town, to the coastal splendour of the Southern Ocean.

Murder in Murloo is a classic who-dun-it introducing Dusty Kent written by JB Rowley and published under the pseudonym Brigid George.

This story has everything you would expect & more!" -- Amazon Reviewer

Meet FBI Special Agent Allison McNeil. Smart. Tough. Flawed. Unstoppable.

When a high-society call girl is murdered in her Georgetown home, investigators find two cameras hidden in the walls of her bedroom. One has its memory erased, presumably by the murderer. The second is connected to the Internet through an encrypted connection...

...and no-one knows who's on the other end.

Special Agent Allison McNeil is asked by beleaguered FBI Director Clarence Mason to run an off-the-record investigation of the murder.

The most direct path to apprehending the killer is to find the videos, but the rumors that the victim's client list may have included Mason's political enemies has Allison doubting the director's motives.

Balancing her care for her father suffering from Alzheimer's disease and her grief over the recent death of the man she loved, Allison launches her investigation to solve the murder.

But she quickly discovers that she's not the only one pursuing the videos. 
 
In fact, the most aggressive person racing against her might be the murderer himself.

She saved countless soldiers in the wars … but does she have the weapons to fight an outbreak?

Dr. Emily Shane, veteran of the Sector Wars, is known as “The Angel of Fantalar” for her bravery under fire as a medic. However, the doctor has her own war wounds–severe PTSD and guilt over those she failed to save.

Persuaded to fill a seemingly frivolous berth as ship’s doctor on the huge and luxurious interstellar cruise liner Nebula Zephyr, she finds the job brings unexpected perks–a luxe beach deck with water imported from Tahumaroa II, and Security Officer Jake Dilon, a fellow veteran who heats her up like a tropical sun.

However, Emily soon learns she and Jake didn’t leave all peril behind in the war. A mysterious ailment aboard the Zephyr begins to claim victim after victim … and they must race against time and space to find the cause and a cure!

If anyone’s left when the disease is through with them …
