A 2013 Bookie Award Nominee – Best eBook Novel of the year!
A 2012 Readers’ Choice Awards finalist!

A woman without a past…

After a tragic accident left her with no memory, Kate Alexander struggled to fit in with a husband and world that didn’t feel right. She’s had no reason to question what friends and family have told her, not until her husband is suddenly killed and she finds a photo of a young girl in his office. A girl who can’t be anyone but a daughter Kate didn’t know she had.

A man desperate for a reason to live…

Ryan Harrison lost his wife in a plane crash five years ago. To cope with the pain of her loss, he dedicated himself to his job and to raising their daughter. Now a successful pharmaceutical executive, Ryan has everything a man could want—money, fame and power—but he’d give it all up in a heartbeat for just one more day with the woman he still loves.

Two lives about to converge.

As Kate begins to dig into a past she doesn’t remember, evidence leads her to San Francisco and puts her on the path toward Ryan, a man who sees in her the woman he loved and lost. Kate feels a draw to Ryan, one she can’t explain, but is that feeling enough to convince her this is where she’s supposed to be? As Ryan and Kate search for answers, they uncover lies long buried, a passion hotter than either expected and a danger that threatens…even now…when the second chance they’ve both been searching for is finally within reach.

Death was his art. She would be his masterpiece.

They called him Leonardo—a master skilled in the art of murder. One year ago, Cincinnati was his canvas. A scalpel was his tool. And women were his works-in-progress.

For Casey, a new city means a life far from the one she left behind in Cincinnati. In San Francisco she finally feels safe. Until a series of eerily familiar slayings plunges her back into Leonardo’s game. Now she must catch this clever killer before he can unveil his ultimate masterpiece. Only this time she’ll play by a different set of rules—hers.

Hemlock Lake

Hemlock Lake by Carolyn J. Rose is $0.99 in the Amazon Kindle store, and this book has received an average user rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars based on 24 customer reviews.

Category: Mystery & Thrillers

 
 

 
 

 
Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Arson. Murder. Vengeance. Betrayal. Love. Loss. Redemption.

For generations only a few families held title to land in the isolated Catskill Mountain community of Hemlock Lake. But with the turning of the century one man, lured by easy money, sells his inheritance to a developer of luxury homes. As the contractor bulldozes farmland and forest, neighbors cry environmental rape, and someone threatens to burn what is built.

Hoping to stop the arsonist, but tormented by personal demons, Sergeant Dan Stone reluctantly returns to his family home on the shores of the lake. The previous autumn his wife died in its dark waters and his brother put a bullet in his brain. That tragedy sent Dan’s father drifting toward death.

Isolated by his pain, and haunted by the ghosts of his wife and brother, Dan is thrust into the no man’s land between newcomers and longtime residents who stonewall his investigation into threats, graffiti, theft, and a blaze that nearly kills the construction foreman. Townspeople blame outsiders, eco-terrorists, a ragged tramp haunting the woods and the mysterious creator of rock cairns that often mark the sites of crimes to come. But as summer sizzles on, the arsonist turns killer, and Dan suspects it’s someone he knows well: a firefighter, a friend, or a woman with a killing in her past.

Hemlock Lake took second place in the Public Safety Writers Association 2011 Competition.

A man falls to his death at the Grand Canyon. Accident, suicide or murder? What if you could ask him?

When park rangers find Adam’s crumpled body 300 feet below the rim of the Grand Canyon, they think he was one more careless tourist. But back home in Boulder, Colorado, his grief-stricken wife Sharon is sure he was murdered. She won’t rest until she knows why he was so troubled in the month before he died. Over the objections of her prominent father, she turns to grief therapist Cleo Sims, who runs a project that re-unites people with dead loved ones.


Despite threats and warnings, Cleo takes on the challenge to help Sharon contact Adam and solve the mystery of his death. She gets extra encouragement from Tyler, a surfer-dude spirit who visits her from beyond, offers cryptic advice, and pushes her to “ride the wave” with Sharon.

Tension mounts and Cleo’s professional reputation and her life are on the line as her digging uncovers a sinister underbelly of scams, fraud and deceit in this hip mountain community.

Category: Romantic Suspense
 

 
 

 
 

 
Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

This is a story about sacrifice… death… love… freedom. This is a story about forever. Haven Antonelli and Carmine DeMarco had vastly different childhoods. Haven, a second-generation slave, grew up isolated in the middle of the desert, her days full of hard work and terrifying abuse. Carmine, born into a wealthy Mafia family, lived a life of privilege, never having to answer for anything he did.

Both now seventeen, a twist of fate causes their worlds to collide, making them question everything they ever believed. Entangled in a web of secrets and lies, they learn that while different on the surface, they have more in common than anyone would think.

In a world full of chaos, where money and power rule, Haven and Carmine yearn to break free, but a string of events that started before either were born threatens to destroy them instead. Murder and betrayal are a way of life, and nothing comes without a price– especially not freedom. How much will they have to sacrifice? Can they escape their pasts? And, most of all, what does it mean to be free? Not everything is as it seems, and no one can possibly come out unscathed, but maybe, just maybe, it’ll be worth it in the end.

16 FREE Kindle Books Special Ends Today!

Don’t forget that today is the last day for something I am also promoting on the Free Kindle Books and Tips blog: a group of authors I’ve corresponded with over the past few years – as well as read several of their books – have banded together through the end of the day todayth to either (a) offer their books for free, or, (b) discount their books to just 99 cents each. Speaking of free, 16 of these titles are free, with the remainder just 99 cents each.

In terms of customer reviews these are all highly-rated books, and if you count the number of books being offered in boxed sets my back of the envelope calculation says you are getting to peruse over 70 books. There should be something for everyone – children, young adults, adults – in a variety of genres. There’s even a few my teenage daughter has read and enjoyed (and started buying the rest of Cidney Swanson’s series as an example)!

I’m not going to list each book out as it would take a couple of hours; however, here are four short links you can click to grab the freebies and consider for the ones discounted to 99 cents – just remember this pricing only lasts through today!
