Part of the problem with some of the series that I read is that the books are rarely on sale and I think $12.99 is definitely too much to pay for something that will entertain me for a few hours at most.  This book falls into that category.
As Death Draws Near, the 5th book in Anna Lee Huber's Lady Darby series is $1.99 right now.

$1.99 each


Future Noir Revised & Updated Edition: The Making of Blade Runner


A 600+ page book on the making of Blade Runner - with interviews, etc. Good value for $2.


The Boys of Summer


Seems to be in the vein of It or Stranger Things. Middling reviews, but I know I'LL enjoy it. I remember reading about it in the article 9 Books to Read After You've Binged on Netflix's Stranger Things.

99 cents

A new author picked up a wonderful series after Randall Garret, the original author passed away, and did a good job with this and one other book. Recommended!

One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest is offered for $2.99, but I can only get a more expensive edition to show up in the link maker. Heres the direct link to the cheaper Penguin version:

The Anatomist's Wife, the first Lady Darby book by Anna Lee Huber is $1.99 at posting.
I really like these, but the regular price is too high for me.

I borrowed that from the library back in 2016 because, yeah, the prices are high for kindle books. So $1.99 is a bargain. Sadly the later books in the series are also priced too high and not available in any of MY libraries. :( Ah, well, plenty of other things to read.

It looks like Philippa Carr's entire Daughters of England series is on sale.  All titles appear to be $1.99 or $2.99 at posting.
These are ones that I had in print and I've been waiting for the prices to drop before buying them again.  I'm not going to link all 20 of them, but here are the first few:

The Miracle at St. Bruno's - $2.99


The Lion Triumphant - $1.99


The Witch from the Sea - $2.99


Sarabond for Two Sisters - $2.99  This was the first one I read many years ago.

Murder Makes Waves, book 4 in Anne George's Southern Sisters Mysteries is $1.99 at posting.  I really enjoyed all of these and the first few are pretty reasonably priced.

The Pennyfoot Hotel: Three complete novels plus a short prequel (Pennyfoot Hotel Mystery)
Author: Kate Kingsbury

Prequel: A Perilous Promise
Book 1:  Room With a Clue 
Book 2:  Do Not Disturb
Book 3:  Service for Two

$0.99 at posting - also in KU



Phyllis A. Whitney's books were released electronically last year.  I bought quite a few of them as they went on sale, but it looks like they have already reissued them (with new ASINs) at lower prices.  I filled in the gaps in my collection this morning.  The best thing is her books are all standalones so unless you really MUST read things in published order, you can pick and choose if any of them interest you.

The Golden Unicorn $3.99


The Singing Stones $2.99


Feather on the Moon $3.99

Worthy by Catherine Ryan Hyde. $2.00 as of this posting. (I'm in the middle of reading it right now and would highly recommend it.)

The first book in Dorothy Gilman's Mrs Pollifax series, The Unexpected Mrs Pollifax is $2.99 at posting.
I thoroughly enjoyed all of these, but be warned - not all of them are available electronically yet.  When I read them all again last year, I had to pull out my print copies to finish the series.
Amazon has the first seven books plus the last one on Kindle.
