Free and Bargain Kindle Books! (Thursday August 4)

Mash Up, by Joe Klingler. (Still 0.99?)

"I know I love a book when I intentionally slow my reading down, so the book doesn't 't have to end. Mash Up has something in it for everyone; the tech lover, the music lover, the suspense lover and the romance lover. The author delves into the problems created by access to the digital world of music and art and the evolving issues of technological pirating. Questions every person must answer themselves; just because everyone is doing it, does it make it right?" -- Amazon Reviewer

"Klingler's new thriller is a ride into the dark side of computers and comedy...definitely has a Quentin Tarantino-feel to it."--San Francisco Book Review (5 of 5 Stars)

Qigiq, the Alaskan detective introduced in Klingler's award-winning RATS, now faces his most complex case when the contents of an Amazon box put him on the cyber-trail of an exhibitionist killer in this noir thriller. A beautiful avant-garde violinist arrives at SFPD freaking out about the box and her missing roommate--precipitating the hunt for a killer who leaves behind a torrent of body parts and videos of heinous crimes.

Qigiq and his new fast-driving partner, Kandy Dreeson, are lured into a web of cybercrime they struggle to untangle before the next Amazon box arrives. Dodging attempts on their lives with each bit deciphered, they grow ever closer to lethal forces that trade money for murder--and passion for revenge.

"Klingler makes supreme use of his tech knowledge in a grisly mystery...His effortlessly clever prose makes the subject thoroughly entertaining."--Kirkus Reviews

Evensong (Meratis Trilogy Book 1), by Krista Walsh. (Still free?)

"'I'll admit, I'm always intrigued by stories where the main character is an author, as I feel it gives a bit of insight into the thought process of the author themselves. And this concept, seeing the author get pulled into a world of their own creation, feel like something that almost any writer can identify with. And it's all so well written that you can't help but be sucked into the world yourself. It's honestly one of those books where I spent every free moment I had reading." -- Amazon Reviewer

Author Jeff Powell wakes up to find the impossible has happened. He is within his own novel—summoned into the fictional world of Feldall’s Keep by a spell he didn't write. One the House enchantress hasn't figured out how to reverse.

When the villain he's been struggling to write reveals himself, unleashing waves of terror and chaos, Jeff must use more than his imagination to save the characters he created—and the woman he loves.

Trapped within a world of his own creation, he must step outside the bounds of his narrative to help his characters defeat an evil no one anticipated, even if he must sacrifice his greatest gift. In the end, he has to ask: are novels really fiction, or windows into other worlds?

The Meratis Trilogy centres around author Jeff Powell, who wakes up in his sword-and-sorcery fantasy world. Initially an arrogant and close-minded character, Jeff has his eyes opened to a world of dragons, magic, and assassins. Faced with an evil he could never have imagined, Jeff is pushed to his limits and forced to rise to the most unusual challenges.

Death in Nostalgia City, by Mark S. Bacon. (Still 3.99?)

"“There isn’t an ounce of fat in this novel. Bacon’s prose is clean, crisp and lightning fast. The plot moves like a theme park ride. Death in Nostalgia City is a spectacular read." -- Brian Kaufman, author

Nostalgia City theme park re-creates a small town from the 1970s in every detail, but when rides are sabotaged and tourists killed and injured, an unlikely duo is persuaded to investigate. Lyle Deming is an anxiety-prone ex-cop, now driving a Nostalgia City cab to escape the stress of police work. Kate Sorensen is a 6’ 2 ½” former college basketball star, now theme park PR director. She must play spin doctor and help investigate at the same time. The two likeable characters slowly learn each other’s strengths and form a bond. Their investigation of corporate greed and murder lead them from the Arizona theme park to downtown Boston where they go undercover at a giant conglomerate to find the evidence they need to save the park from more violence and bankruptcy. The mystery is filled with puzzles to solve, plot twists, plus suspenseful action and a fast-paced, unexpected ending.

Award winner at the 2015 San Francisco Book Festival.

Dear California (Martin Family Book 2), by Brooke St. James. (Still free?)



"BrookeSt James never disappoints!!! It was so beautiful and sweet. It had all of the perfect components of a beautiful romance. I loved the characters so much. I loved getting to know Cole and I loved Liv just as much if not more. Practically perfect in every way. " -- Amazon Reviewer

Martin Outfitters had a potentially lucrative partnership in the works with a clothing company based in California. A face-to-face meeting with the owner was all they needed to seal the deal. Cole Martin was confident he could take care of business, and he offered to make the trip.

When his father suggested he take a vacation on the West Coast after the meeting, Cole refused. He was solely focused on securing the partnership so he could get back home. He had no intentions of taking a vacation, much less building lasting personal relationships or experiencing life-changing events while he was there.

Everything was going according to plan until he met Olivia.

"Rescue me," was the first thing she said to him, and well, with Cole being a Southern gentleman and all, that was exactly what he did.
