$FREE on 8/19/2019 – A Berry Clever Corpse by A.R. Winters

Welcome to Sarah’s Eatery, where the food is to-die-for!

Kylie’s move to Camden Falls didn’t go quite as she expected: now she's got two hunky men fighting for her affections, more culinary mishaps on her café's Oops Board, and ex in-laws who won’t leave her alone.

“Winters will have you giggling into your book!”

And, of course, there's the latest murder that Kylie gets drawn into…

When local real estate bigshot “Mean Mike” Pratt is found dead in his office, accusations fly from every other storefront—in no small part because he owned them!

Kylie’s hairdresser, Susie, is dragged into the accusation game as one of the many whose shops were owned by Mike. He and Susie were seen shouting in the street over a rent hike, and word travels fast in Camden Falls…

Did Susie really kill Mean Mike? Was it Susie’s boyfriend, trying to protect his girl from Mike’s predatory practices? Or maybe it was the hip coffee shop owner, or even Susie’s rival beauty salon owner? And why is Mike’s neighbor Tina ducking Kylie and the cops?

While she learns the secrets of baking, Kylie, with best friend Zoey by her side, uncovers the secrets behind who really killed Mean Mike!

Solve the murder. Stop the war. Save the world.
Sir Brannon Kesh spent years building a new life as a physician, leaving the name Bloodhawk and the war that spawned it behind. But when the King's cousin is murdered, duty calls him back.

As bodies pile up and political ramifications escalate, Brannon must join forces with a vain mage, a socially awkward priest, and a corpse animating shaman to solve the murders and prevent another war. But who can he trust when the phases of a bigger plan take shape?
The Risen are the greatest danger Brannon has ever faced. If he and his team cannot stop the killer then all of Kalanon – and the world – will descend into darkness.

$FREE on 7/1/2019 – Macaron Massacre by Addison Moore

My name is Lottie Lemon and I see dead people. Okay, so I rarely see dead people, mostly I see furry creatures of the dearly departed variety, aka dead pets, who have come back from the other side to warn me of their previous owners impending doom.

Mayor Nash is up for reelection and I’ve been asked to furnish the sweet treats for his campaign kickoff. So when I stumble upon a corpse at the party everything predictably goes haywire. But this isn’t just any old corpse, this is a personal attack on our family. Not to mention the fact that someone seems to be stalking Everett. Something isn’t right in Honey Hollow. It seldom is. There is only one saving grace in this chaos and it’s the fact that Nell Sawyer is back. If I have anything to say about it, she’ll be back for good—and the only way to ensure that is to let the case grow cold.

Lottie Lemon has a brand new bakery to tend to, a budding romance with perhaps one too many suitors, and she has the supernatural ability to see dead pets—which are always harbingers for ominous things to come. Throw in the occasional ghost of the human variety, a string of murders, and her insatiable thirst for justice, and you’ll have more chaos than you know what to do with.

Living in the small town of Honey Hollow can be murder.

$FREE on 4/29/2019 – To The Bone by Robin Mahle

A new case brings back old memories for Special Agent Kate Reid.

A cold case in Boston suddenly turns hot again when a construction worker uncovers bones at a site along Boston’s famed Charles River. The remains are presumed to belong to a victim of the serial killer who haunted the city in the 1980s. However, when more victims turn up and are believed to be much more recent deaths, the elite BAU team is called in to investigate the similarities.

The team, led by Agent Nick Scarborough, arrives to work with the local FBI field office. But this is all too familiar for Agent Kate Reid when parallels are drawn between this investigation and her own search for a killer who resurfaced years later.

Now she confronts not only the reminders of her former days, but someone is working against her interests that could undermine her very sanity.

$0.99 on 4/25/2019 – The Wyvern’s Defender Dire Wolf by Alice Summerfield

A single word scribbled on a scrap of paper by an unsteady hand chilled the blood in her veins. It read simply: Run!

Called ‘barely a dragon’ all her life, Helena Tarleton hadn’t thought herself valuable enough for anyone to try to Sever her from her soul mate, whoever and wherever he was. She couldn’t even shift! Bookish and naive, Helena is ill-suited for life on the run, but run she does. Helena can’t outrun, outsmart, or outfight her dragon relatives, but she’s willing to die trying.

After a rough childhood, dire wolf shifter and military veteran Rudolf Shaw has found family – and a substitute pack – in working for supernatural protection agency, Dial-A-Defender. Dolf doesn’t want – or need – anything more, until he responds to a break in and finds Helena, a woman in obvious need of a place to lie low. Taking the gentle woman in and giving her his protection, despite her secrets (and the insistent howl of his better sense) is a no-brainer.

But when a pack of hellhounds comes sniffing around, his neighbor is murdered, and the biggest dragon that Dolf has ever seen tries to fry him, Dolf begins to suspect that he may have bitten off more than he can chew. A dire wolf has no hope of defeating an entire pack of hellhounds, much less an old dragon, but for Helena’s sake, Dolf has to try. Because the thing is, she just might be his soul’s mate.

The Wyvern’s Defender Dire Wolf is a steamy, full length novel chock-full of humor, cozy mystery, action, and heartwarming romance. If you love reading about mysterious murders, bookish but brave heroines, or the thoroughly confounded heroes that fall in love with them almost entirely against their will, don’t miss this exciting read!
