Murdered by Words: Midwest Cozy Mystery Series, by Dianne Harman. (Still 0.99?)

"This is my second read from author Dianne Harman. Murdered by Words did not disappoint. I was in deep with Kat as she is thrown into the murder mystery of her editor. I loved the settings and Harmon emerges you right there in the story with her vivid descriptions. It was not predictable so it kept me guessing all the way through. A special treat is the yummy recipes. Harman knows how to serve up a well- written cozy mystery." -- Amazon Reviewer

Bad Karma (A Jack McCoul Caper), by Dwight Holing. (Still 0.99?)

" The book has an excellent sense of place. Set in San Francisco, the tale takes the reader from posh clubs of all kinds to the world of struggling computer start ups. The author has done his homework and writes knowledgeably about a variety of subjects ranging from how venture capital investing works to entomology, to gourmet food to computer hacking to New age health fads. There's a touch of humor to go along with a lot of suspense and excitement as well as an interesting set of minor characters. " -- Amazon Reviewer

The Only Exception (The Only Series Book 1), by Magan Vernon. (Still free?)

"I just finished reading The Only Exception and I really liked it. The protagonist, Monica, is intelligent, fiery and damaged but not beyond repair and Trey is as charming as he is conservative. His attraction to Monica is instant - she is unique and she isn't the least bit afraid to put him, the Governor's son, in his place and she does so every chance she gets. He loves that she isn't afraid to challenge him and his beliefs and that she isn't just another vapid coed looking to elevate her status. The unfortunate experience in Monica's past that saw her transfer schools is a familiar storyline these days especially in New Adult and mature YA books but it is the political aspect of this story that sets it apart. " -- Amazon Reviewer

Fiercely liberal Monica Remy prefers to blend in. Despite her tattoos, piercings, and outspoken personality, she transferred to Central to escape--before she finds out that her next door neighbor is the uber conservative governor's son, Trey Chapman.No matter how hard she tries to avoid Trey, he still finds a way to get under her skin. Monica can't stand his crisp white shirts or his staunch views on women. But she can't help counting every freckle on his face and wondering what it would feel like to have him stop talking politics and kiss her.A class debate project forces the unlikely pair to work together, and the political lines are blurred in late-night make out sessions. But despite their fiery chemistry, Trey's politics threatens to smother their relationship for good.
