THE HOUNDING, by Sandra de Helen. (Still free?)

Update: The Hounding will be free starting tomorrow morning (Oct 16th) and will remain free until the 20th!

A well-done Sherlock Holmes knock-off, this is the first in a series of mysteries featuring sleuth Shirley Combs and her sidekick/narrator Dr. Mary Watson.

"The author provides the prerequisite features for classic mystery fans: a roster of suspects to keep readers guessing, assembling those suspects for the big reveal, allowing plenty of time for periodically reviewing the case, and of course, a magnifying glass. A confident, meticulously detailed mystery that would have made Shirley's pipe-smoking idol proud." -- Kirkus Reviews

Tall, thin, androgynous Shirley Combs considers herself the world's greatest living detective because she uses the methods and casebook of Sherlock Holmes to solve crimes of the gentry of the American city most closely resembling London, England -- in terms of the weather, at least.

Sidekick/narrator Dr. Mary Watson both delights in and is frustrated by her partner's behavioral resemblance to Sherlock. Combs is unemotional, analytical, and given to pacing through the night in the streets of the almost perfectly livable city of Portland, Oregon. Her ability to observe details and understand their relationship to a case is unmatched; her demands on Watson's time are too.

"The author has created a cast of characters who are realistic, intriguing, complex people who are easy to relate to." - Kathleen Anderson (Jersey Girl Book Reviews)

"A good read that kept getting better and held my interest to the very end." - Loretta Giacoletto

Stella is one step from leaving her honky tonk town when bad-boy Dane roars down Main Street on his prized Harley-Davidson. Their dangerous romance keeps the locals talking, but when Dane is arrested after a deadly bar fight, the couple discovers their love runs deeper than their reputations.

Fans of "Baby Dust" will enjoy reading the backstory of their favorite characters in an edgy romance that moves from Stella's small town bordering the Ozarks to the famous Missouri State Penitentiary, proving that the best kind of love is the one that endures.

"Deanna Roy has created a tuck-at-your-heart yet edgy nontraditional romance. The star-crossed lovers are destined for a host of insurmountable problems in a rural Missouri town where one of them is home-grown, and the other an intruder viewed with suspicion." --Loretta Giacoletto, author of Free Danner

"By turns heart-rending and uplifting, Stella and Dane is a spellbinding testimony of love's power to carry us through the hardships of life." --Amber Sweetapple, author of Jack and Djinn

Sara's Game, by Ernie Lindsey. (Still free?)

What's this game all about? Find out in this mystery/thriller, free today!

"Just finished Sara's Game and it was a definite page turner from the first pages! I pretty much had the "bad guy" figured out quite early, but was still a great ride getting all the t's crossed and the i's dotted. This was an interesting thriller and I highly recommend it." -- Ann Bresnan, Amazon reviewer

Two years ago, Sara's husband left for the gym one morning...and never came back. His car was found. He wasn't. Unbelievably, the police report said, "No foul play suspected." There were a few unreliable sightings over the following months, but little else.

Now, on the last day before summer break, her three children have gone missing from their schools, all at the same time.

And the note under her windshield wiper asks one simple question: Are you ready to play the game?

The Loves of Leopold Singer (Historical Family Saga), by LK Rigel. (Still free?)

This historical saga chronicles the love and loss experienced by the Asher and Singer families in the early 1800s.

"This is an amazing romantic historical epic... the kind of book you want to pack for those long vacations because it plays out like a great TV miniseries. The multi-talented L.K. Rigel leaves her usual venue of fantastic future worlds and faeries to delve masterfully into Georgian and Regency times. You will be thinking about this book for a long time after reading it." - T.M. Roy
A sweeping family saga that masterfully weaves together the stories of two families brought together by one fateful encounter -- set in the Regency period, this romance takes place over two generations of love, loss, and intrigue. - BookBub

A novel of infinite longing...

Susan Gray, a gentleman's daughter, never expected to be a housekeeper - even if the house is the Duke of Gohrum's fabulous London mansion. A good marriage is her only path back into society, but her love for Leopold Singer could make that impossible.

Marta Shonreden is the most beautiful girl in the village. It's why Leopold Singer married her, but will he still love her when he discovers her devastating flaw?

Delia, Duchess of Gohrum burns with resentment for Leopold Singer, the man who rejected her for a provincial nobody. Ruining Leopold's pretty new wife will be a perfectly delicious way to exact revenge. This sweeping saga follows two families whose destinies are bound together one night in 1802 London. Over generations, between Shermer's Landing in Massachusetts and the English village Carleson Peak, the fates of the Ashers and Singers intertwine as their fortunes rise and fall.
