Joanne Fluke's 18th Hannah Swensen book Double Fudge Brownie Murder is $1.99 at posting.
I was a fan when the series started, but have lost interest along the way and rarely pay full price for any of her books.  I'd purchase it for this amount (actually I paid $2.99).

Good deal, Andra. I'm enjoying the series so far. It's not perfect but it's a lot of fun and the recipes look awesome. The things in the first book that bugged me are starting to grow on me so I may not have to take a few breaks to read other stuff during the series. I have all of the books except the last 3, 2 of which I don't think have been published yet lol. I'll wait to pick up the Wedding Cake one when it's a less scary price. I bought them all on sale, and the ones I didn't buy were gifts.

now for some new deals..

           
 
this one is #13 in a series..

#21 in a series  

I probably missed a few but that gives y'all a good place to start :)

Another first in series I have had on a watch list that is currently on sale for $1.99 (was $7.99).  I really need to stop adding the first in series books to my lists and start on the umpty-billion I already have on my Kindle! Ah well, one more doesn't hurt, does it? :D

Thanks, Tricia.  I'm not signed up for any newsletters, so I would have missed it if you hadn't posted!  Just what I need, another first in series...

Every once in a while you can find something worth downloading. I was worried you were running out of books;)

Excellent find. I bought the 3rd title in the series at a library sale a few months ago but haven't gotten to it yet.

Running out of books...  not likely to be a problem, but I shudder to think of it!  :D

The next installment in the Abbott series is not out until October, but is available as a pre-order.  I really enjoy this series and you have time to get started and caught up before Book 5 is released. ;)

True!  I don't have KU, but I'm pretty sure I read the first book in the series as a Prime/KOLL borrow.  I liked it well enough that I didn't want to wait to continue at one book a month, so have purchased the rest.

No longer at $1.99, now $7.99 - I should have taken advantage of the pre-order/release day price and not put it on my wish list.  :(

An interesting sounding cozy that is free today.



I'm a big fan of the mystery series by Sujata Massey which are set in Japan, so I'm looking forward to a cozy in the Japanese culture.

Free mystery/cozy I ran across today.  Sounds like it has potential, I'm sure I have read other Joanna Pence.  Anyone familiar with this series?

I'm not familiar with that one, crebel.

This one went to $1.99 this morning..   the second book is due out in September.

In other cozy mystery news.. I'm up to Red Velvet Cupcake Murder in the Joanne Fluke series. Just 2 more after this one. Actually 5 but I only have 2 of them and 2 aren't released yet, and I'm waiting til the other one is on sale.

I finished Double Fudge Brownie Murder last night. That was the last full book that I have of the series. I have the 2 that have a story by other authors included. I'm saving those for a while because I don't want to spoil those series.

I enjoyed the Hannah series a lot. There were aspects I didn't enjoy as much. And the part that I enjoyed the most was Moishe.. and Moishe and Cuddles. I think they deserve their own books.

I'm not sure which cozy series I'll start on next. For now I'm going to read some other stuff.

The first two books in the Savannah Reid series by G.A. McKevett are on sale.  I still enjoy the later books in the series. 
You can usually get the new releases through scribd.

Check your library if you are not sure whether you have purchased these.  I have all of her books but these are new ASINs...


Just Desserts - $2.99 at posting  (also in KU if you want to try it)


Bitter Sweets - $1.99 at posting

That's another one already in my library, but not showing a "You already own/bought" tag.  Could be something Amazon is messing with on the book pages too, because if I click on the "Books in this series" box it shows I already own all five.

Was it gifted to you? The own/bought warning sometimes doesn't work on books I've received as gifts. I would say maybe it's a different ASIN, but if you're getting the warning on the series page, I don't think that is the issue.

I gave up trusting Amazon's warning on books, I usually just check my GoodReads account to see if I've added it there, that way I'm sure, because I always add a book as soon as I buy it or receive it as a gift.

Entirely possible, the rest of the individual books do show "you purchased on..."  I wish the "you own" warning was more consistent for gifted books.

is on sale for  $1.99

I am on book 5 in the series and I highly recommend them. It looks like the sale coincides with the announcement that book 6 will be released 11/1.



The preorder price is 12.99! I am sorry but its a cozy that is barely 300 pages, that is utterly ridiculous in my opinion. I have checked the audio version out from my library so far and will continue to do that for the next one as well. The synopsis makes it sound really interesting, I can't wait.
