Saturday Sunday Savings

Can you believe it?  I forgot my own (new) meme yesterday!!!  *sigh*  Well, here it is, the <del>$aturday</del> $unday $avings.

Here’s a new little meme I’m starting – and I’d love for you to join if you’d like.  I want to share great savings on books, e-books, coupons for bookstores, etc.

I found a new email subscription that keeps track of free Kindle books for me.  I know not all of you have an e-reader, or if you do, you may not have the Kindle, but for those of you who have one, or have the (free) Kindle Reader app on your computer, tablet or smart phone, here are a few books you can take advantage of….

Ethereal by Addison Moore

“Sixteen year-old, Skyla Messenger is a dead girl walking.

When her newly remarried mother moves the family to Paragon Island, to a house that is rumored to be haunted, Skyla finds refuge in Logan Oliver, a boy who shares her unique ability to read minds.

Skyla discovers Logan holds the answers to the questions she’s been looking for, but Logan’s reluctance to give her the knowledge she desires leaves her believing Logan has a few secrets of his own.

Skyla’s bloodlines may just be connected to the most powerful angelic beings that roam the earth, and the more she knows, the more danger she seems to be in.”

The Time of Aspen Falls by Marcia Lynn McClure

“Aspen Falls was happy. Her life was good. Blessed with a wonderful family and a loyal best friend–Aspen did know a measure of contentment.

Still, to Aspen it seemed something was missing–something hovering just beyond her reach–something entirely satisfying that would ensure her happiness. Yet, she couldn’t consciously determine what the “something” was. And so, Aspen sailed through life–not quite perfectly content perhaps–but grateful for her measure of contentment.

Grateful that is, until he appeared–the man in the park–the stranger who jogged passed the bench where Aspen sat during her lunch break each day. As handsome as a dream, and twice as alluring, the man epitomized the absolute stereotypical “real man”–and Aspen’s measure of contentment vanished!
Would Aspen Falls reclaim the comfortable contentment she once knew? Or would the handsome real-man-stranger linger in her mind like a sweet, tricky venom–poisoning all hope of Aspen’s ever finding true happiness with any other man?”

Just Deceits by Michael Schein

“In 1793, Virginia’s most powerful family found itself embroiled in scandal: Richard Randolph and his sister-in-law, the beautiful Nancy Randolph, were charged with adultery and infanticide. Richard Randolph demanded a public trial. Richard’s stepfather, Judge Henry St. George Tucker, hired John Marshall, a young lawyer who was connected to their family through marriage. John Marshall would go on to become the greatest Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, a man whose theories of law are now taught to every first year law student, though at the time of the Randolph trial he was relatively unknown.

Uncertain about Marshall’s abilities, the Randolph family—at the last minute and unbeknownst to Marshall—brought in co-counsel; none other than founding father and former Virginia governor Patrick Henry. Henry’s wild, improvisational style clashed with Marshall’s reasoned defense based on the facts, but Henry was so successful that Marshall was forced to learn from him—and then to improve on the master.

Author Michael Schein, a former professor of American legal history, drew on John Marshall’s actual trial notes in writing this novel that centers on the trial of the 18th century. Just Deceits shows how the remarkable defense team of wily Patrick Henry and ambitious John Marshall battled each other, their clients, the prosecution, and the truth itself, in an effort to save their clients from the gallows.

In its ribald portrayal of a young legal system already driven more by spectacle than evidence, Just Deceits calls into question the feasibility of uncovering “the whole truth.” Ultimately, as secrets are revealed and relationships brought to light, Just Deceits tells a story as much about the trials of love as about the trial in the courtroom.”

Progeny by Shawn Hopkins

“It has been months since John Carter’s estranged brother, Henry, has gone missing. When last heard from, he was sailing off to Bermuda in search of an author whose books deal with the esoteric traditions of past ages.

Reluctantly, John joins Henry’s old Special Forces Teammates on a trip to Bermuda, hoping to discover the truth behind Henry’s disappearance. But not all is as it seems in Bermuda, and the puzzle that awaits John on the small island paradise will prove to be more sinister than anything the world has seen in a very, very long time.

As the fingers of an ancient evil seek to draw him into another world – a world where all of Hell is trying to break loose – John must confront the truth of his own past… and pray that he might survive its revelation…

…that the WORLD might survive its revelation.”

The Love of a Cowboy by Anna Jeffery

“Texas widow Dahlia Montgomery has traveled to Idaho to find peace for her troubled soul.Luke McRae has traveled to town to argue with the Forest Service. When Luke, a man with plenty of troubles of his own, accidentally crashes into her and knocks her to the floor in the Forest Service offices, neither of them suspects it’s a life-altering moment. In the ensuing summer, , they each find something in each other they hadn’t expected, but a satisfying resolution is a journey.”

Deadly Stillwater by Roger Stelljes

“An abduction is just the beginning in a case of betrayal and revenge that will ultimately strike at the soul of the St. Paul Police Department.The ruggedly handsome Mac McRyan, a fourth-generation cop, is faced with a complicated brazen daytime kidnapping, a media storm surrounding the case, and political scrutiny. It is a case of betrayal and revenge that will ultimately strike at the soul of the St. Paul Police Department. From the searing streets of St. Paul to the murky waters of the St. Croix River, DEADLY STILLWATER is a book you won’t be able to put down until its last gripping minute. “

Gutshot Straight by Lou Berney

“Charles “Shake” Bouchon leaves prison intending to go straight. But, within hours, lovely, lethal Lexy Ilandryan, head of LA’s Armenian mob and Shake’s one-time lover, has him running an “errand” for her. The task seems simple: drive a car to Las Vegas and turn it over to Dick Moby, a 400-pound sadist who runs a strip club. Moby will give him a briefcase that he is to return to Lexy. Shake needs the three large Lexy hands him, but he quickly learns that nothing is as it seems; in short order, he’s ditched by a gorgeous young stripper who had been stuffed in the car’s trunk and is on the run from the Armenians and Moby’s able henchman. She’s also searching for the briefcase, which contains a priceless religious relic.”
