I haven’t posted any Free Kindle Books for a bit, so I thought I would do a roundup of a few popular ones, with a little of everything in mind! Amazon prices are always changing, so these may not be free for long.
All God’s Creatures by Carolyn McSparren (Reg. $8).
Description: “Often compared to the novels of James Herriot, ALL GOD’S CREATURES follows the life of a woman veterinarian in modern Tennessee. From an unlikely start as a white-glove debutante in the 1960′s to a sexism-defying launch in vet school to the adventures, sorrows, joys and oddities of a long veterinary practice, our heroine spins tales of the animals and people who share her life. By veteran romance author and dedicated horsewoman Carolyn McSparren, who also writes the Merry Abbot Carriage Driving Mysteries.”
Surface Tension (Seychelle Sullivan) by Christine Kling (Reg. $3.99)
Description: “In this strong suspense debut, Seychelle Sullivan owns a salvage tug near Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and makes a precarious living piloting luxury yachts and sportfishing boats in the Florida waters. When her radio picks up a distress call from the Top Ten, she hurries to the scene, hoping to net a windfall. The luxurious yacht is skippered by her former lover, Neal, who seems to have abandoned ship and left a dead body behind. Who is the dead girl, where is Neal, why do the police suspect Seychelle, and how much can she hope to recover for salvaging the yacht? When she finds her modest cottage has been searched and her stash of emergency money is missing, she figures Neal must be alive, hiding from the police or from the girl’s killer. The Top Ten’s representative offers a paltry sum to settle the salvage claim, so Seychelle decides to find out who the real owner is and go to arbitration. As the tension and suspense build, Seychelle’s existence becomes increasingly precarious. Kling vividly portrays a characteristic dichotomy of the Sunshine State-native Floridians trying to earn an honest living in an atmosphere where anything and anyone can be tainted by loan sharks, drug money or worse. As a female tugboat captain, Seychelle is one of the genre’s more unusual amateur sleuths, and Kling makes her one of its more endearing ones as well.”
Breaking TWIG (This one looks good to me!) by Deborah Epperson (Reg. $2.99)
Description: “Set in rural Georgia in the 1960s, BREAKING TWIG is a coming-of-age novel about Becky (Twig) Cooper, a young woman trying to survive the physical and emotional abuse of her mother, Helen, a beautiful, calculating woman who can, with a mere look, send the meanest cur in Sugardale, Georgia running for its life.
Not even Twig’s vivid imagination, keen wit, and dark sense of humor is enough to help her survive the escalating assaults of Helen and a new stepbrother, but help comes from an unexpected source–Frank, her stepfather. Sometimes, having one person who loves and believes in you is all a girl needs to keep hope alive.
Often raw and irreverent and sprinkled with all the Southern flavoring found in a good bowl of chicken and dumplings, BREAKING TWIG, is about finding love where we least expect it, destroying lives with easy lies, and realizing each of us determine our own truth.”
Intrusion by Arlene Kay (Reg. $2.95, but the print version is $16.95!!)
Description: “Young widow Elisabeth Buckley sleepwalks through life until her best friend’s murder changes everything. To avenge his death and salve her own conscience, Elisabeth plunges into the high-stakes world of a Boston biotech firm where a ruthless killer stalks his prey. Along with her makeup maven pal Candace, Elisabeth confronts a host of suspects including a randy cardiologist, a cash-strapped scientist and a gorgeous Frenchman who makes her dizzy. Can she find the murderer and reclaim her own life, or is Elisabeth the next victim?”
