The Adventures of Zeppi - A Penguin Story - #1 New Friends, by C.K. Omillin
Price: $0.99
42 pages, with a 4.8-star rating from 29 reviews

"This was a nice enticing story, I'm looking forward to the following adventures of Zeppi. It is a simple clear story, complete in itself but leaves you wanting for the continuity. I feel it is reassuring in addressing a fact many kids face: being afraid to be alone away from their parents. Also discerning that there may be bad people, but good people too. Also obviously touches the idea of environment by way of a compost heap. The drawings are cute, a child could want to try and imitate them. Short but ideal length for a youngster. Highly recommended!" -- Amazon reviewer

Tea Cups & Tiger Claws, by Timothy Patrick. (Still free?)

"This book was a very good read. I feel it shows the true color of people. There are some people that will never be happy and will do whatever it takes for the things it feels others owe to them. They do not care what happens to others, only driven by greed. The book kept to the point, the characters stayed true and as it should be... greed and evil never win. A great mix of characters." -- Amazon reviewer

First comes the miracle and then comes the madness. The miracle is the birth of identical triplets, and the madness is all about money, of course. The year is 1916 and the rare occurrence of identical triplets turns the newborn baby girls into pint-size celebrities. Unfortunately, this small portion of fame soon leads to a much larger portion of greed, and the triplets are split up--parceled out to the highest bidders. Two of the girls go to live in a hilltop mansion. The third girl isn't so lucky. She ends up with a shady family that lives in an abandoned work camp. That's how their lives begin: two on top, one on the bottom, and all three in the same small town.

Identical in appearance and with the same blood in their veins, the sisters should have also shared united destinies. Instead, those destinies are thrown to the wind, and the consequences will be extreme. "Tea Cups & Tiger Claws" explores wealth and poverty, jealousy and conceit, and is ultimately a story about deadly ambition and how it will once again throw the sisters together. It's a journey that spans fifty years, three generations, and the perilous gulf between the rich and the poor. Along the way, you'll marvel at the opulence of a mansion where presidents are entertained, and you'll walk cautiously through a shanty town that harbors the forgotten. So get ready for the unexpected, and let "Tea Cups & Tiger Claws" take you down the crooked byways of this captivating family saga.

"A great find! In this latest 'Ghostwriter' adventure, Roxy becomes embroiled in a mystery that hits close to home – her ex-boyfriend, Max, has been "lost".

Fasten your seatbelts for a cozy mystery ride through Europe -- but remember, this ain't no holiday.

Hunky photographer Max Farrell has just vanished into thin air, his last sighting in the arms of a blonde floozy at a Swiss mountain resort. Max's estranged girlfriend Roxy Parker pretends she doesn't care but when his flatmate shows up murdered, bludgeoned by his own guitar, and then the floozy takes a dive off a cliff on the Italian Riviera, she must face the truth at last--Max's life is hanging in the balance and she is his only hope.

Where is Max?
Who killed his Berlin flatmate?
And what the hell was he doing with that blonde in the first place!

In the latest Ghostwriter Mystery, Roxy Parker packs her designer luggage and heads to Europe on a quest to find the man she wishes she didn't love. With his uber-trendy, self-absorbed sister, Caroline, by her side, Roxy must follow a series of tantalising clues that take them from the heights of Mt Pilatus to the azure Mediterranean Sea encountering brash German police, secretive Swiss soliders, and an Italian lothario to die for.

Move over Sue Grafton! C.A. Larmer's seventh book proves yet again why she is one of Australia's most exciting cozy mystery authors writing for contemporary women today.
